Hi All

 

Anybody got good or bad comments on the Corima Aero Wheels?

 

Preferably from 1st hand knowledge, reviews you've read would also help.

 

Thanks

I had my first ride on Sunday with a set i got last week. They are stiff light and the hubs are buttery smooth. Really enjoyed them.

Been using the clincher (road tubeless) model for 18 months now. Roll like a dream, definitely aero, and very strong.

 

I've been able to compare downhill speeds with ksyriums (bricks) and low-profile eastons (better than the ksyriums), and I go faster on the Corimas, so the aero has been proven in practice.

 

I've hit some potholes (sorry, Swift, this is SA), no problem. I've crashed twice. The rims stayed true -- although once they got horribly scratched by the rough tar (read: rasper) after a tire blowout at 70. I replaced the scratched rim because of the braking surface, but the rim was true.

 

Braking on carbon works, but it does take a little getting used to because there is less feedback.

Thanks, cos i've been looking at a set of deep sections and i'm really unsure of what to buy since you have the "bigger" brands like Zipp 404's, Easton EC90's, HED Jets, Mavic Cosmic, Reynolds Assault/46's etc competing against the no name brand "taiwanese/HK" makes at half the price.

 

I've spoken to somebody i know who's ridden a set, also said they were stiff as hell and a really great wheel. Better than even Zipp, HED & Mavic.

 

Just looking at as much feedback as i can get, since spending money to then change afterwards isn't what i want to do.

 

Thanks again!
