Ultegra RS81 C35



Moderately light wheel set but solid feel. Felt good in sprints and seemed to help in climbs. No complaints. I weight 230lbs and average 3000 miles yearly. I'm a non racer but love doing Centuries. Will review again after 2000 miles.

These wheels though heavier then my previous RS-80 wheel set (mostly due to the the depth increase from 23 to 35mm) are incredibly rigid and strong. Every kilowatt of energy gets transfered through these wheels and onto the road. The wheels also handle road ruts and cracks with out a concern that the wheels may have been put out of true or cracked in any way. Certainly great for training but also for races. Crosswinds are a concern with the depth at 35mm as opposed to 23mm. These wheels were true coming out of the box and to be honest I don't think I will have to true them for a long time. That is just how solid and tight they have been built.

Smooth and fast



This is the first time I've upgraded from stock wheels and I was skeptical that it would be much better. I got these to upgrade from the Bontrager TLRs that came on my Trek Emonda ALR 5. The bike rides much smoother and easily goes 3-5 MPH faster with the RS81s than the stock wheels.

Great Wheels



Best money I ever spent on my bike. Read several reviews before buying because I weigh 210 lb. Wanted to make sure my weight wouldn't compromise the wheels in any way. Two pro reviews stated that heaver riders should look into these wheel. I noticed right away that when climbing, I am using higher gears then I was on my old wheels. Braking is very smooth. For the Price, you can't go wrong. Bob

great wheels



Bought these wheels as an upgrade for a 2014 Cervelo S2. The bike is noticeably faster with these wheels. And I got a great price from ProBikeKit. I'l happy.
