The C55A wheelset is a great set of wheels for use in mixed conditions – be it a triathlon, road race or a ride on your favourite route. At 55 mm deep and with an aero profile these wheels will have you speeding along like a greased horse in a vacuum. The shape of the rims allows you to slice through the wind and when there is a crosswind the shape also keeps things stable.
We have tuned these wheels absorb more road buzz resulting in a slightly more comfortable ride than straight up carbon wheels. This also means that you can ride longer and faster, while experiencing less fatigue.
Sure, you won’t see a lot of pro riders using full carbon wheels, but there are a couple of very good reasons to use carbon-alloy wheels. The first is that in wet conditions, an alloy surface offers much better braking capability than a carbon rim. Second, alloy is much better at dissipating heat than carbon fibre so on very long descents you may risk overheating pure carbon rims. Alloy rims can handle the heat, regardless of the length of the descent.
The C55A wheelset is a great choice for someone looking to upgrade to a faster set of wheels that can handle lots of different conditions and are durable enough to use every day. They also don't want to pay a hefty price for gaining more speed.

Those looking for aero benefits at an entry level price will love these wheels. The deep rim has noticeable effect on the road, while the weight is competitive with higher priced wheels at this depth. At 1765g, they are lighter than shallow stock alloy rims and have been great for climbing and descending. I live in the Rocky Mountains and have never second guessed using these wheels for long, 6000ft+ climbs. Lighter riders will definitely feel strong side winds, but they handle well. Spoke tension was even and tight all around the wheels straight out of the box and have not needed servicing. There is some flex and slight brake rub on the rear wheel when powering up very steep (+10%) slopes. The rims fit wheels rather tightly which causes some effort to slip a new tire on, but holds well once mounted. I have used 25c tires with no problem on a Specialized Tarmac. The hubs are smooth, and again, have not needed servicing as of yet. Although, I live in a dry climate and they have not been used on much wet rides. For the depth and weight, they spin up nicely from a standing start and keep their momentum well. Overall, these wheels have been great and would be an excellent addition for someone looking for an all-around wheelset that can climb, descend and excel on the flats.
