Are you looking to get into racing, but don’t have the money for a second pair of expensive wheels you only use on race day? Vision’s Team 35 Clincher Comp SL Wheelset is a great choice. These wheels strike a great balance of aerodynamics, durability, weight, and cost to give you an excellent value for around $300.
The 35mm deep alloy rim is just deep enough to provide adequate aerodynamics, but not too deep to where the wheels are hard to handle in crosswinds. These wheels performed well on rolling and flat terrain but won’t slow you down when the road tilts upward either.
The result is a wheel that you can use for just about any wind situation. There is no need to have multiple wheelsets for different conditions. The 19mm internal rim width also gives tires a larger contact patch for added traction and comfort.
The alloy rims are also more than durable enough to be used as a daily training wheel in addition to a racing wheel. The bearings on the wheels roll incredibly smooth and the wheels are quite stiff in corners and sprints. For most of us, the majority of our time on the bike is not spent in races.
Having a wheelset like the Vision Team 35 Clincher Comp SL Wheelset that is strong enough to train on, performs like a set of race wheels, and is relatively inexpensive to replace if something does happen, you get that with the Team 35’s.
Vision Team 35 Clincher Comp SL Wheelset offers reliability, performance at an economical value. The SoCalCycling.com Team has had the opportunity to use various Vision wheelsets during the race season and these wheels have been solid in both training and racing as well as in different types of terrains.
The Vision Team 35 Clincher Comp SL wheels look and perform much better than the MSRP would suggest.
