Decent quality, good value

5

Needed a set of wheels to replace some old Campagnolo Khamsin ones from around 2009. They had done really well but showing their age. Didn't want to break the bank, saw these had a decent reduction in price. Arrived within a couple of days, perfectly packaged. They are reassuringly sturdy and hubs are so smooth. Bladed spokes, if you like that sort of thing. I don't suppose they will win many top ratings but I'm really pleased and they have exceeded my expectations.

Very beautiful but overweight

4

The wheels are very beautiful and I haven't used them yet, but my own weight reached 1960g. Even without the rim tape, it was more than 100g heavier than the official claim of 1755 (official website)!

Nice wheelset

5

I received the wheelset well-packed. I used it this weekend, and my initial impression is that it is a nice looking wheelset and absorbs bumps very well.

smooth rolling

5

I had read some other reviews mentioning these hubs were a bit noisy, and did notice the first few rides. The noise has quietened, though, and these seem much smoother rolling than the old Xero Lites that came with the bike (2008 Giant TCR-A1). No complaints after a few hundred miles, other than the paired spokes (not a fan), but knew they are trickier to adjust before I bought these. I only had to slightly tweak a few spokes for a true, round wheel after shipping. A good sale price made up for that small, occasional inconvenience.

Solid wheelset

5

Bought these as an upgrade for the RS500 stock wheels that came with my bike and have been really impressed. I already have a set of Zonda's which have been the most reliable wheels I have ever owned and the Scirocco's haven't disappointed. Have put almost 20,000 km and have had no spoke issues or the wheels go out of true. I currently have them on my cross bike and they can easily handle the trails and gravel roads. The weight is more noticeable over the Zonda's on sprints and climbs but other than they have been great wheels

20,000 mile review

5

I put about 20,000 miles on these in all conditions around Boston. Solid wheels. Bearings were fine, wore through one freehub, still had some brake track left. No trueing or spoke replacing that I didn't cause by crashing on ice. It took 20 minutes to replace one spoke when I did. You do have to buy a 4 pack of spokes, which is annoying. They are a little aero, not much. Feel solid and heavy. Zonda feels much lighter, strava says it is a little slower.

bombproof

5

i am at the absolute rider weight limit,(perhaps slightly over!!) and these wheels are rock solid as are all of rhe campy wheels i've ever ridden. they aren't overly heavy, they are nice and stiff and roll nicely. i've nevrer had a campy wheel go out of true and i expect these will be the same. i have absolutely no complaint about these wheels and much to like about them. any set of wheels that handles my super-clydesdale carcass without trouble is great in my book. they look nice too! buy campy wheels, they don't break!

Excellent Wheels

5

I get it; everyone is switching to disk brakes but I'm not there yet and as a result I was looking for a great pair of clincher road wheels. I have multiple pairs of Campy wheels and they have all be great and these are no different. They are well build, reasonably light, straight and true; bottom line is that they aren't going to be what holds you back from your best time. They will make you a better rider.

Nice wheels

5

I purchased a set of these wheels back in August 2018. Didn't use them exclusively until January 2019. Put 6500 miles on them in 2019 and 7000 miles on them in 2020. They are sturdy wheels. Riding in the San Antonio Texas area on the rough roads, steep hills, farm roads, very few smooth roads. The rear wheel bearing need to be repacked, just noticed they need this in October 2020. Other that that these wheels are solid. I am considering another pair. Very reliable with 23mm, 25mm, and 28mm tires. You can't go wrong with a purchase of these wheels.

so far so good

4

I purchased these for off-season replacements. They are lighter than the stock wheelset on my 2008 Giant TCR A1 (Xero XSR-3), which I had worn out over the years. Out of the (well-packaged) box they were mostly round and true, though needed a few quick tweaks on the truing stand. On the stand they seem to spin less freely than my broken-in wheels, though I understand this is typical of newer wheels and they may spin more freely once warmed up. They seem of good quality. I’m curious how the spoke lacing pattern holds up over time. I’ll update after riding a bit on indoor trainers this winter, and after Spring rides start up again.
