Peter (aka Audax Demon) ordered a pair of H Plus Son Archetype / Chris King R45 wheels and completed the 1400 KM London Edinburgh London Audax. Here is his review and well done that man! #chrisking#archetype #audax
Just a note to let you know that the wheels performed faultlessly on London-Edinburgh-London, despite some atrocious road surfaces. I’ll dig out some photos in due course but I’m a very happy customer. The wheels are light, lively, and comfortable–an important consideration when you’re riding over 1400km in less than 5 days. They also look very cool, and seem remarkably robust for such responsive wheels. Build quality is extremely impressive–to the point that I didn’t give them a second thought despite the lunar craters that passed for tarmac on much of the route. A nice bonus is that my favourite tyres (Vittoria Rubino Pro) are a very easy fit on the rims. The ‘jar of angry wasps’ sound of the Chris King freewheel kept me amused. It’s a very silky hub too.
