I searched and couldn't find anything pertaining to their 2013 lineup

Has anyone been on a 2013 SL wheelset by Yishun? Claimed 1080g +-30 for 24mm, and for their 88's, 1467 +-30, which rivals even a lot of high end manufacturers. Weight limit on the 24's is 85kg, and 113kg for all others. Assuming these don't bend like noodles, these would be a steal for $500-$600. I'd rather wait for feedback before buying, but I'll probably spring for these in a month or so

that thread on RBR is from 2010, and that review talks about electronics/phones which yishun doesn't sell. considering Yishun is partnered with velobuild, i think they have their act together

I can't say anything bad about my (non-SL) 44mm Yishun tubulars. Neither regarding handling of the purchase, nor functionality.

I have had 3 sets of Yishun Wheels in tub and clincher in both 38 & 50mm. I am a big guy and all have held up great.

All of them have been fantastic wheels and a great value.

I am selling a set of 38mm tubulars (because I am only riding the clinchers these days) if anyone in interested.
