Jetfly U4.0

4

Finally received these wheels after a month transit amidst the global carriage metdown. Wheelset is actually Jetfly U4.0 rear wheel is 2x DS , radial ND so probike need to update their picture and spec. It is the new inner width 20mm outer 25mm which is actually better rolling profile. I've got Schwalbe pro one 25mm on mine with tubes,no rim tape required. They weigh 697g + 885g so 1582g total. Excellent aero profile and considering 32mm depth get up to speed fairly quickly with no freehub slip due to over greasing and zero flex - for me anyway. Great value wheels - long term reliability tba.

Nice wheels

5

First set tubeless wheels so very happy. They run really well, freehub will loosen up I am sure probably too much grease as others have said. The freehub makes a great noise as well. Really happy.

Excellent wheels.

5

These Jetfly wheels are brilliant even though they are heavier than stated in the description. They are the latest wider rimmed version and mine weigh 1660 gms, 200 gms more than in the description here I haven't tried them tubeless as I'm still a bit wary of it but with Continental 4000 clinchers they are magic. If I could I'd knock half a star off because of the freehub. It is packed with grease that is so sticky the pawls don't always engage so that is the first thing you should do degrease and then use a light grease on them. Don't be apprehensive about it, it's dead easy to do. I've got Ksyiriums and Fulcrums which are a wee bit lighter but I much prefer these Novatecs.

Over- greased freehub!

2

Great wheels, NOT so great freehub. An excess amount of grease in the freehub stops the pawls from engaging. The freehub has to be serviced to clean out the excess grease!

Really good wheels, but...

4

I have been riding these wheels with tubeless Michelin Power tires for about 200 miles now. It is like I have a whole new bike, they are smooth and light and perform really well, except for one small detail. The factory over-greased the freehub and so it occasionally freehubs in both directions. Yep, kind of makes it hard to stand on a climb thinking that it could break free at any time. I fear I am going to have to take it apart and de-grease it. Once I get that solved I would give it 5 stars.

Heavier and Wider Than Claimed.

5

I have to agree with the last reviewer that these wheels are heavier than claimed. They are also wider than claimed. I weighed them using two different scales and came up with exactly 710g for the front and 900g for the rear (without quick release skewers and without the tubeless valves, but with the pre-installed rim tape on). I also measured the outside width of the rims at 25mm (not 21.5mm as stated), and I think this is where the discrepancy with the given weight might lie. I think something must have changed with the more recent Jetfly wheels and this is why a pair is 1610 g instead of the stated 1435g. Vittoria Open Corsa 25mm clincher tires and inner-tubes were super easy to install by hand (no levers), which was very welcomed after I've found the last name-brand carbon wheels I've been using to be an absolute nightmare to install clincher tires on - forcing me to often give up to keep my sanity. All in all I like them so far, but I'll have to post again after I get a few miles on them.

Heavier than claimed

4

I'll post an updated review after riding. Weighed these after they arrived, with rim tape front was 709g and rear was 890g, so 1599g. Much heavier than the claimed 1455g. This is my first attempt at tubeless. They set up tubeless fairly easily with schwalbe 25mm tyres, so far they've stayed inflated for weeks without any sealant. When my new frame arrives I'll test ride and post a ride review. They appear well made, quiet freehub and come with tubeless tape installed, tubeless valves, spare spokes and skewers.

Novatec wheels

Fantastic wheels. Replaced Token heavy carbon wheel whose bearings failed after 3,OOO kms. These wheels are quick, light and no flex and I weigh 80 kgs. The bike feels completely different for the better. Pro Bike Kit were superb again. Thanks

The best

5

I have been riding Novatec Jetfly wheels for over 4 years now and they are still true and smooth running now as when I first got them. That is over 13,000 km according to Strava. I reckon there is still one or two years of life still in them before the brake surface indicators show they need replacing. Amazing set of wheels, being both stiff and light. Just what I need where I live, in the Yorkshire Dales, where the gradients exceed 20%. At the price that Probikekit were selling them, I couldn't resist ordered another pair which I intend to set aside until my present pair finally wear out.

Fantastic wheels love them.. Item arrived 1 day after shipping estimate, but it is free shipping. So no complaints here. Customer assistance was fantastic and extremely prompt. Will buy from Probike Kit again.
