To bike pack across Italy, I mounted these wheels with 32mm road tires. Wonderful when climbing the Appinines. Even more fun without pannier load. Stiff, responsive, especially on the hills. Changed the tires to Panaracer 35s for USFS fire road gravelriding in Appalachians. Climbing a breeze and wheels straight as can be in the turns. I own three sets of disc wheels. By far, these are my all-purpose favorite. Torch hubs are terrific.
