JP from Quest Adventure has been testing the 46mm carbon clinchers these last few weeks. They have a set of hybrid ceramic bearings which we are testing for durability installed. Here is his report –
“I have been using the Strada Carbon 46 wheels again and this time I was able to assess them without being overwhelmed by how nice they made my bike look. They are lighter than my Racing Ones and climb and accelerate better. They are much more forgiving than the Fulcrums and so are good on the rough stuff but flex a bit on hard sprints but that is a small price to pay for the comfort and climbing. The bearings are incredile. Anyone familiar with Fulcrum wheels will know how good bearings can be but these wheels are in another class – they just spin and spin. You ought to see them when the bike is in a work stand. Finally, they corner incredibly. I’m using Ultremo Rs and can’t believe how fast and how low I am getting the bike. A crash, surely, awaits! They get a thumbs up and I really want to keep them.”
Thanks JP for the review and photo.
