Anybody with the latest soul 3.0s? I'm looking for an everyday training wheel for my caad 10 and I sit around 64kg so I might even ask for a 20/24 build just to get a bit increase in durability. Not sure if the 2.0s are actually more durable with the rim not as deep

I have a set of the s3.0. Have had them over a year now and probably put 3k miles on them. I am very impressed. I think they are a good balance of lightweight but semi aero wheels. No maintenance issues so far. I am a fair bit heavier than you so you shouldn't have any issues. I wrote a review on bike radar website that you can find if you search.

@davidalone have you bought something from them recently?

Definitely liking the look of their newer S2.0 & S3.0 wheels for an everyday set.

I live near singapore and am there pretty often. His newer wheels can be found in some of the local shops and I saw the new Soul 3.0s in a shop in october. They looked very very nice. pretty light too.

A friend of mine who lives in singapore and races ITU triathlons bought a set of his carbon clinchers for his race wheels earlier this year. Cyclingtips also did a review on their wheels last month.

So ased on this evidence I'd say yes, Soul is still in business.

Ah yes I did read that Cyclingtips review of the S4.0, good point. Thanks.

I'll be ordering a set in the new year. S3.0's would suit my Venge but the weight of the S2.0 is appealing!

I think you could build your own for the same money and close to the same weight - with a lot more faith in their reliability.

I had exactly the same problem on mine not long after moving to an 11 speed freehub. The spring around the freehub was completely destroyed. I just replaced it with the one from my 10 speed hub, and that worked fine.

Thanks, I've gotten 6.5k km on mine so I'm not too choked, funny that my tires have actually lasted longer than them. Do you know where I could find replacement springs? I have a race next week....
