They spin in a circle

Heavy
Chips easily

This wheel set came stock with my 2015 specialized crave. The rear hub began to grind after 3 weeks of riding. Bike shop said it was normal. Eventually, the several spokes loosened nearly to the point of coming out of the rim. The front wheel also suffered this problem. Eventually I got the rear wheel replaced under warranty. This replacement wheel had all of the same deficiencies, except to a greater extent. When I filed for a second warranty replacement, Specialized gave me 50% off their 29er Roval wheel set, which I purchased.

Do not buy these wheels. They are a massive failure of engineering.
