Light enough

5

Everyone is riding Kyseriums because they are light. Well if you're good sized and ride fairly hard, The Mavic wheels don't hold up all that well. The Shamal's are a little lighter (not enough to mention) and so far they have been extremely reliable. I don't like carbon braking surfaces. So these aluminum wheels are just great. Unless it's raining, they brake every bit as good as disks. Without the added complication.

Great wheels for mountain roads

5

I bought these wheels for use on mountain roads to avoid the risks arising from the effect of side winds on deeper sections rims. These wheels are light and very stiff, the bearings run smoothly and there’s none of the noise characteristic of carbon rims. Added to which PBK’s price was the most competitive I found and delivery was prompt, well packed and exactly as described.

CAMPAGNOLO SHAMAL ULTRA C17 CLINCHER WHEELSET

5

I have had this wheelset for over 4 years now. I live in NYC and the roads here are far less than perfect. With close to 20K+ miles on them, they have continually run smooth with nary a wobble or any trueing. I have had 3 sets of wheels from another well known manufacturer, and I can't say the same thing. They were consistently troublesome. The Shamals are great wheelset where you can't go wrong spending your money.

Wanted a carbon wheelset....

5

I rode a set of Campagnolo Shamal 2-wayfit's for 12 years and wanted to try a set of carbon wheels. I also wanted a pair of wheels that were a little easier to mount tires by hand. After looking and researching and shopping around I was almost ready to pull the trigger on a wheelset from one of the better known Chinese builders but I couldn't quiet shake some nagging concerns. I don't race but I ride at a good pace and like climbing and I don't relish questioning the integrity of my wheels doing 45-50mph downhill. I don't run tubeless and when I found out that getting tires on the non-2-wayfit version was easier then the version of Shamal's I had I took advantage of ProBike's great pricing for a set. The box they came in was a wreak but the wheels were fine. I took very good care of my previous set and even though they look similar the new pair rolled much better. Much Better!! While they not super aero they are much more so then a box section wheel and they are light! You have to spend 3 times as much to get lighter wheels and these are bullet-proof. My first pair went 12 years and I never had to true them. I couldn't be happier with my purchase. If you don't race and just want a fast pair of reliable and very light wheels, these are the best set of wheels made. The are awesome!

Great buy

5

I wasn't sure about spending this much -- even with the savings over list price -- for a set of wheels, but these are amazing. They more than live up to the billing while also offering me the long-term durability of metal.

Wanted to add to my previous review

Completed a couple centuries and can only repeat what was said in original review 100x... Forgot to mention wheel bags are included and are typical Campagnolo quality!

This is the 2nd set of Shamal Ultras. Wore out my first. Magnificent wheels. Perfectly true. Ultra smooth bearings. Weight is equivalent to a lot of carbon clinchers. Probably the best alu wheels money can buy. Other than for looks, carbon clinchers don't make sense when you can get these wheels for so much cheaper. They are my go to training and wet weather wheels when I don't want to use my tubs. No sign of water and grit ingress despite the conditions I use them in. As usual, Probikekit has the best price and delivers quickly.

Campagnolo Shamal

5

I have used Campy since 1971. You can't beat them for durability and smoothness. These wheels simply meet the Campy standard. My last pair had over 125,000 miles and the brake surface was worn thin.

Perfect Wheels!

5

I bought these wheels to upgrade from my old Mavic Kyserium Elite, and I am glad I did. They are super smooth and incredibly responsive. Excellent at climbing, and very stable when descending at high speed. They are the quietest wheels I have ever owned (no clicking whatsoever when coasting), which took some getting used to. They also look fantastic. Highly recommend.

From Euros to Shamal

5

proves to be a bigger jump than anticipated Lighter, smoother and the best bonus these wheels are quiet when coasting Straight line tracking and stability is much improved-although the slightly wider 25mm tires help as well Campagnolo quality wheels are durable and the Euros wheels remained true for a decade; I caught my heel while moving in the rear wheel and minimal damage I ride a Colnago Dream HP and 25mm is max clearance the new wheel/tire (Corsa G) breathed new life into a vintage bike Great help and feedback from PeoBike as well
