10 / 10

Tim, 22 April 2016

Light, stiff, fast.

I bought these on a whim to replace a set of very good alloy wheels. I have been pleasantly surprised how much more power I can put through these under rapid acceleration and climbing, there is a tangible difference. They look super-cool to boot. Only minor niggle is no tubeless compatability.

Pros

  • Very stiff
  • Accelerate fast
  • Climb beautifully

Cons

  • No tubless compatable version

Detailed product description

This set is tested by the best cyclocross athletes in the world. Such as super talent Jeremy Powers, who tested this set by riding one season on them. This went so well that he became National champion on them, without replacing the bearings. Braking with this disc wheelset has never felt so good because it remains stiff and ensures maximum grip.

New to this wheel set are the 77/177D hubs. These hubs have end caps that can be turned by hand to remove them, to ride with the new standard 12X100 on the front or a 15X100. For the rear you can ride a 12X135 or a 12X142. These hubs are cheaper, lightweight and perhaps the most importantly thing; more versatile than the old 88 / 188D. From now on you can choose between a thru axle or a quick release.

Firecrest wheels stand for ultra-modern technology in aerodynamics. Just like its predecessor this wheelset is equipped with the X32 rim with a rim height of 32mm and a internal width or 17.5mm and a external width of 25.4mm on its smallest point and 28.5mm on its widest point. This ensures the wind resistance is zero. This is tested by the ingenieurs form Zipp in a wind tunnel and by CFD tests.

This wheelset rides much smoother compared to a standard carbon wheelset thanks to its ceramic bearings and the way of building this set. Ride with this wheelset and it feels like you stick to the road and take turns on full speed.
