If you only ride a set constant speed, then wheel weight isn't much concern. However, in the real world, there is always a change in pace - terrain, wind, traffic or the random urge to just "go".
Reducing rotating weight greatly increases the responsiveness of your bike and are just all around more fun to ride - when you press on the pedal, the bike "jumps" forward with an eager liveliness that is addicting.
This wheelset features double wall, aero profile 7301 A Rim. With a combined weight of 1475g these hand built wheels have final tensioning, lateral and vertical truing and pre-stressing, done here at Wabi Cycles in Colorado. Wheels include rim strips, and a lock ring for a fixed cog. The rear hub is a flip-flop design, fixed threading on both sides allows the use of fixed or freewheel on either or both sides of the hub.

IMPORTANT NOTE: For frames with narrow thickness dropouts (less than 6mm), there is a chance that the wheel nut and axle will bottom out and not provide a good clamp. This is especially true with used frames where the paint and steel have been previously clamped (and thus thinner). In those cases, you would need to use a dropout protector, chain tensioner or washer to provide enough thickness at the dropout for a clamp.

Impressed with the weight and quality build of these wheels. Perfectly true out of the box and came well packaged. Wouldn’t hesitate to purchase again.
I want to thank Zack Gallardo for recommending this wheelset. I put these on my Kilo TT Pro and it's now just over 17lbs. The wheels are really sturdy to be so light but you can still feel a nice lively flex on really rough terrain. Great set if you're looking to drop some weight off your bike.
I haven't been able to mount them because of weather but appear to be excellent quality. Almost too pretty to get dirty. They arrived very fast. Would buy again. I think very good for the price.
5/5 .. 10/10..perfect wheels and amazing customer service
I only got these recently, so can't vouch for durability yet. I'll upgrade the star rating to 5 assuming they hold up well. Arrived quickly and true. I actually only bought them because Wabi was out of their regular wheelset as a component, but I was kind of shocked by the difference in feel between the two sets. I had no issues with the regular Wabi wheels, but have to admit that these make a really noticeable difference (positively) in the way my bike rides. Definitely zippier, to the point where I'm still getting used to it!
