I've often heard that this is a quite good carbon wheel set (and it's affordable!!!). No one has bad experiences. I would buy them too but they're still too expensive for me :( .

The ones I have ridden have been rather nice, but stay away from the HPs as removing tight tyres can lead to tears :(

Could you explain HP's plz? Sorry; I'm not a native English speaker and don't know this expression/shortcut. It's important for me cause I wanna buy Corimas too.

Thx

Hi Core,

It was a nice way of saying failures have happened...

With the HPs if a tight tyre is remover with a thin tyre lever the point loading on the edge of the lip can crack the top lip can crack.

This shouldn't be a problem if you use losse tyres, or take your time changing tyres with Michelin type (wide) levers, or get the singles- which end up lighter!
