Any opinions on new or older version of the Specialized Axis 4.0 Disc wheelset, regarding spokes tension, flex, or any other problems?
https://www.specialized.com/us/en/axis- ... -ta/114529
I found some different, not best opinions, regarding older QR models of Axis 4.0, especially regarding spokes and low spokes tension.
I am aware, that they are cheap and more or less training wheels, but I wouldn't like to be a regular visitor at in local Specialized service. :?

Not looking for different wheelset for this second winter bike.
The new derailleur hanger, now allows any other non-SCS wheelset with 12x135mm adapter to be fitted on.
I'm just looking for opinions on this stock wheelset, if I will have potential problems in the future.
Don't want to spend any extra money on a wheelset for this bike. :thumbup:

They are speced on the diverge. Pretty robust feeling from my time on them so far on a demo bike that has copped plenty of dirt. Still run true.

Thanks for info. :wink:
On the first glance, everything looks good for the price. Maybe spoke tension is not that high, guess I am more use to carbon wheels.

For a winter beater they will be ideal. Get the tension checked after a couple of rides. Lube the nipples to stop them locking up and just beat on them :)

Ideally, you'd want 28/28 on disc rims regardless of rider weight.
Axis 4.0 (21mm inner, 26mm outer) look good on paper ~1600 grams vs. ~1800 grams Fulcrum S-19 (19mm inner, 24mm outer) found on Roubaix Expert model.
