Hey guys, never really gotten a straight answer here on this question.

Would you guys consider a set of 7850 c24's strong enough for a race wheel-set for cross?

:beerchug:

Thanks for the info.

I would. Shimano pride themselves on durability, and if their carbon wheels are good enough for so many world champs, I'd say the alloys are fine too.

The aluminum clincher? I wouldn't be worried about strength, but that thin braking surface won't last long.

A buddy of mine swears by them, stiff and supremely robust according to him.

I've raced a whole season on RS80s with no issue, I'm 85kgs and not very easy on my equipment.
