Once you exceed 30-35 kph, it’s as if you have an extra gear.
The placebo effect is strong with this one.

It could be the other way round like when below 30-35 kph it feels like one gear slower? Means acceleration is not good but once up to speed it becomes normal.

They are lighter than my stock wheels, so....

My LightBicycle AR56s are lighter, stiffer, wider, and more aero (56 mm deep vs 32mm) than my stock SLR1s. While they are only marginally more comfortable, the aero difference is surprising. Once you exceed 30-35 kph, it’s as if you have an extra gear. They were definitely worth the sub-1K $$. There’s no way I would spend $3K on Enves, etc., though.
Thank you. Peak Torque has a couple (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ddojq5P0yM8) on these wheels/rims. I like his vids and certainly trust his judgment. Will def give this wheels a look. Just to make sure are you talking about these?

Yup, the wheels you linked to are the ones I’m talking about. The video has different (but similar) wheels.
