Wheels look good in stealth black, very light and quite. Previous wheelset Askiums. First ride on the Ultra, bike was a different animal, it picks up speed very very quick and keeps going, great on the climbs, my friend mavic ksyruim elites 2015 are heavier and cost £300 more wow. don't bother with sad name brand biased reviews these wheel do the job if you have a problem they'll fix it gre
I combined it with ordinary 9speed setup, without front derailleur and not chain tensioner. At first it felt unreal, and I was suspicious it wont go well at first ride. BUT it performed great.
