As a Chinese, I would like to say Farsports has the best repitation among the Chinese wheelset brand in mainland considering the sales volume and quaility control. Surprised to see your team choose that one as the advertising of Farsports actually is pretty poor in Europe
Same here, would love to see more review or test about their factory-built wheels like C3, C5 etc

Yes that's where I ordered my wheels from too.

But there is also this shop https://en.farsports.cn/ it has many wheels not available on the .com address.
And what is the purpose of them having 3 different aliexpress stores?

Thanks for pointing out the problem. We are working on all the sites to only lead to www.farsports.com.
www.wheelsfar.com is actually Farsports' webshop.
Aliexpress store will be only one there in near future.

https://en.farsports.cn/ is actually for the FAR brand (Only C3, C5, UFO series), which is now mainly selling in domestic China at the moment.
For OEM, www.farsports.com will be the only web.

How do you achieve the 1420g weight? Website says 1580g w/DT350 28h, which should be around 1480g w/DT240 24h (weight diff 60g hubs + 40g spokes)?

The 1420g is the DT240S version. DT350 version is heavier.

Only 60g difference between 240 and 350 right? Website says 1580g w/DT350.

The hub is actually 35g-40g difference. According to my calculation, the DT350S version is around 1560g/set+/-30g

I'm around 78kg. 24 hole for me is plenty stiff with the 35x28 build. I have done some gravel but nothing at full tilt on the really rough stuff. But so far so good. Wheels have been solid for the few hundred miles I have logged in the last few weeks. Climbing they are great and out of the saddle the spin up great.

Anyone played with these yet?
Wondering how they would go with some 28mm 2.0 Corsa Tubeless tyres.

That's FSE not Farsports.
FSE claims they had absolutely nothing to do with Farsports but then it was revealed they have the same parent company.

Just purchased a pair of disc brake wheelset with Dt Swiss 180 Ratchet Expt from Farsports . Marble effects rim . Weight 1.48kg . Brass nipples & marble gloss added abt 100g to the wheelset . Fantastic finishing . As good if not better than campagnolo ultra 35 & 50 rim brake that I have . Competitive pricing .
