Vittoria's Elusion Nero Wheelset has the specs to back up the ominously fast look of its black ceramic coating. This race-day alloy clincher features 26 mm and 28 mm deep front and rear rims respectively with 17 mm and 22 mm widths, and the stand-out ceramic coating provides increased braking performance and wear resistance. These wheels use 16 stainless steel aero spokes in the front and 21 in the rear joined with alloy nipples to save rotating weight at the outer edge. Out back, Vittoria's AS asymmetrical rear rim minimizes dish and helps equalize tension between drive and non-drive spokes to make a more stable and stiffer wheel. Innovative SwitchIT hubs mean the freehub body can be replaced without tools for quick changes between gear ratios or different cassette interfaces.
Shimano / SRAM 9/10/11 compatible. Includes skewers, ceramic-specific brake pads, and wheel bag. Claimed weight is 1576 g.

Before you go ï¿½Eww. An alloy wheelset.ï¿½ hear me out. My racing days are in my past but I commute daily (in all weather conditions except ice) via a bike. I also live in a major metro area that isnï¿½t very cyclist aware. The ceramic braking surface is critical when drivers are being their aloof selfï¿½s. Itï¿½s simply the best rim brake surface you can use.
These wheels have held up to potholes and gravel roads (havenï¿½t trued them yet) and theyï¿½ve survived summer downpours (bearings are smooth). I switch to a cross bike with fenders and knobbies for winter so I canï¿½t comment on braking in freezing conditions but overall these are great wheels. Iï¿½d buy them again.
