I bought these on sale from PBK last November but didn't have the opportunity to really ride/test them out until earlier this year. I was interested in these wheels because of the alloy brake rim mated to a carbon shell. I do a mix of flat/rolling hill rides mixed with climbing in the Sierra Nevadas and elsewhere here in Northern California. I've used full carbon wheels and while they climb great, descending can be 'interesting' especially when grabbing a handful of brake and hearing a howling sound - the alloy/carbon mix seemed like a good idea. The good - The wheels are fairly light and stiff. - They spin up relatively quickly and seem to hold their speed. - Rear hub is very quite when free-wheeling. - Rims are solid - They look good The bad - Hubs are nothing special. They are branded Dura-Ace but I'm sure they are sourced from some OEM supplier like Novatec (which is a pretty decent hub but not in the same league as WI, Chris King or Tune) - I'm noticing some rear wheel deflection when putting the power down. It is manifesting itself in my Garmin 500 cycling between 'pause' and 'on'. Will be taking the wheels in to my LBS to check hubs, spoke tension, etc. Note: there are now about 400 miles on the wheels, no rough roads and no high speed descending. - I haven't noticed any real 'aero' advantage from the wheel set. I have noticed in cross winds that they catch a bit more air than my full carbon 34s and 52s - Because of rim width (see point below) the 23c GP400sII tires have a distinct light bulb shape. I've been riding 24mm or wider rims for 3 years so shifting back to a narrower wheel I found the handling to be 'exciting' approaching twitchy. I replaced the Contis with a set of Vittoria Open Corsa CX tires with Michelin latex tubes and found the handling to be somewhat improved - the tires seem to be truer to size versus the Contis which, when inflated, measure 25mm+ The Terrible - I bought these wheels because PBK advertised them as the 2015 model measuring 24mm at the brake track. They actually measure 21.6mm based on my vernier caliper. The bike I put them on was fitted with Pacenti SL23s, a true 24mm wide rim. I didn't really notice the difference until braking on the first ride - a bit of a surprise to say the least. I don't know if PBK has updated their description or not - if they haven't, check these wheels before using them. The Verdict - Not my go to set of wheels. I've relegated them to training, rain days and loaning out to friends who want to try a mid-depth wheel set. - I bought them on sale and they were a substantial discount off the MSRP. Had I paid full price or even 75% of MSRP I would be really annoyed. Especially when the wheels they were going to replace (which, imo, are better on the descents given their wider footprint and better at climbing given their lighter weight, spoke count and hubs), were about 30% of the MSRP.
I was hesitant to make a big purchase from a UK site but Probikekit had great offers and great service. Wheels arrived with no issue. I don't have miles on the wheels yet but expect them to be great!
Over the years, I've been sucked into buying more over hyped cycling equipment than I care to admit. Most of it is fine, works well, and gets the job done, but just doesn't live up to the hype. These wheels are the exception! They truly exceeded my expectations. They are super smooth, take the edge off of bumps and rough pavement, and absorb road vibrations. It's almost like riding with too little air in the tires. However, when you stand and put some power to the pedals, these wheels respond! There's no side to side flex. Just forward motion. They roll forever and hold speed no matter the terrain. They're very stable on descents and handle well in windy conditions, although I have not been out in really windy weather yet. They came out of the box perfectly true and perfectly adjusted. I can't speak to longevity yet, but can say they are solidly built. There is nothing flimsy about these wheels. Bottom line, the C35 is a great wheel set, well worth every penny. Just FYI, I do not work in the bicycle industry. I've been riding for over 30 years and this is the first time I've been motivated to do a product review.
First order from ProBikeKit.com = excellent experience! PBK had the best price on the web for Dura Ace C35 clincher wheels. Was a bit nervous ordering a fairly high-dollar item from overseas, but reviews were generally positive so I took a chance. Shipment was prompt & surprisingly fast to the US. I'll be back!
Purchased the C-35 wheelset as an upgrade for my Trek, and they have performed as advertised. I have about 300 miles on them so far, mostly hard race training. The biggest difference between these and the stock wheels I had is the stiffness which shows itself as immediate accelerations and energy retention through fast turns. As a great bonus, they are a smoother ride than I've ever had on that bike. The wheelset is about 10 oz (total) lighter than the old wheels, but it's really about ride quality and the handling. Also seem to run faster in the 20-30 mph range because of the aerodynamic advantage. Don't notice much difference at high speeds 35-45 mph. Recommend a 23C tire over a 25C tire for these. Conti 4000s 25's is roll over too much in hard turns. Overall highly recommended wheel - especially at this price!
I have been riding the Ksyrium SLS for the last few years. When I first rode the C35s I thought they felt a bit dead. I was wrong, what they are is stiff compared to the side to side springiness of the Ksyriums. I have been riding them for a few weeks and am really happy with how they handle climbing, descending, sprinting, and on rough roads. A great all around well thought out wheel.
Great general purpose wheelset. The aluminum brake surface allows for steep descents where you don't have to worry about your rim overheating and blowing up a tube as result. The wheels are stiff and plenty fast. These wheels are perfect for everyday training rides and races on all types of terrain. If you're a TT-rider you might want more aero wheels, but otherwise these wheel will do it all.
