American Classic Carbon 58 wheelsets - clincher

DESCRIPTION

The Carbon Clinchers are better than ever with our high-low hub flange and the 3 spoke lacing groups resulting in consistent spoke tension and equal load sharing for increased wheel durability. They are the best of both worlds, carbon in a clincher format to use every day or as race wheels with an aerodynamic advantage. They proved durable in testing at our test facility. Bill Shook selected the aluminum bead over an all carbon bead for improved braking, and to protect the tire and avoid flats. Stiff and compliant, they hold high cruising speed with less effort.

Strength:

Great looking. Stiff, aero, durable. All around great wheels.

Weakness:

None I'm aware of, possibly a little heavier than some other sets but that may make them more durable. You'd have to ask someone else on that.

I'd recommend them.

Strength:

Strength, roll out extremely well, Price compared to similar wheelsets,

Weakness:

non so far

Coming off a set of Mavic Ksyrium sc ssl wheels, that mavic wouldn't stand behind after the spoke and nipples seized together, making them untrueable, and mavic no longer has parts for or services any more. The 58 carbons roll out better and maintain speed much easier than the mavics despite the extra weight. They are also stiffer laterally and seem to be less effected by the wind. the extra wide spokes on the mavics caught the wind and would push me around despite being a clydesdale, Wouldn't have bought the 58 carbons if it wasn't for the mavics taking a dive, but best thing to happen. LOVE these wheels.
