Strengths:    Build quality (sealed bearings, DB spokes, center lock or 6 bolt disc compatible), low cost, servicability.

Weaknesses:    None yet found.

Bottom Line:   
At around 1800 grams per pair not super light, but an reliable, servicable, well made product that has (so far) given me 4000Km of trail and XC riding with no problems.

I'm a relative light weight (65 Kg/145 Lbs) trail rider, so I can't vouch for those of a heavier build or more aggressive riding style, but if you are looking for an excellent value for money product and don't care about the "bling" factor (real or percieved), I can highly recommend these wheels.

Four flamin' chillis all round!

Velocity VXC or Easton EA70 Wheelset

I'm thinking about selling my reliable but unflashy Velocity VXC wheelset in favor of a flashier EA70 XC Wheelset. Is this a good move? Should I stick with the Velocity's?Read More »
