They say that a new wheelset is the best upgrade you can do to a stock bike, well they are right. Dropped almost 3 lbs from my stock set up and added some zip to my ride. These wheels have been great for climbing and perform just as well on the descents (hitting 45 mph), comfortable on the open road but still pretty bombproof when I have hit rough spots. Still running true after most of the summer on my bike and I now have my stock wheels with a slightly wider tire in case I want to go gravel riding.
great pair of wheels - I ride in the city in all weather and did not want high performance carbon wheels but wanted to venture into tubeless - these wheels and tire combination roll great and feel fast and much more comfortable than my Aksium rims
