I'd like to see that weight verified, it seems remarkable for a wheelset that claims to be stiff. I wonder what the rim is? You'd get close to that weight with XR200s if your hubset was in the 240g range, but they aren't famed for their stiffness. Of course we don't know how much the reviewer weighs.

Color me intrigued. With a 24/28 spoke set-up, I'm more inclined to believe the "stiffness" claims.

However, getting real world feeback on Spada from this site has proven elusive for me and others asking about them over the past couple of years ... there's just not a lot of Spada riders on WW and/or willing to comment here.

Also interested in this wheelset.
Anyone out there got any real life experience they could share on the 2013/14 model?

I have 28 spoke XR-200 laced up with Laser spokes and novatec hubs. Bracing angles are good and the wheels are stiff enough but not stiff a build or a low spoke count build with the Kinlin XR-300 rim.

I cannot believe the spada can be any different. The weekness of these wheels will be the hubs. I bet the bearings go south quickly in the presence of water something we have plenty of.

Thanks for the input bm0p700f.
I guess the weight saving is in the hub, not essentially at the rim where it really counts.
They sure look nice though and looking at recent reviews, appear to be stiff enough.
Not tried and tested though, so I'm not going to be the Guinea Pig.
Seems Pacenti SL may be the way to go these days, although it's been suggested Ryde Rims maybe a good light handbuilt alternative.
