Really nice wheels!

I bought these wheels from BTD a year and a half ago soon after they had come out with the new hub design. I picked up a Ca mmm py compatible set and an so glad I did. My first and only set of carbon hoops ever, and I imagine my last, unless I crash the 303's and then the only other set of carbon wheels I would ever get would be another set exactly like these!

I'm sure they look great on any bike but I had just built up a naked carbon Pinarello Paris and these wheels look fantastic on my bike.

Okay but how do they feel? I ride on flat windy hot Florida roads, some smooth trail and a lot of messed up tough roads. So amazed that these wheels take the rough road very well. With Veloflex 25mm tires you think you are riding tubular, by both the feel and cool whooshy sound. We get a lot of wind in the Spring and this is the only time the year I don't like to use them. They are okay in the wind but I like a lower profile rim and feel safer riding no hands on other wheels like the old Fulcrum Racing Zero tubular set I have on the bike now.

These 303 wheels have been completely maintenance free so far. Holding perfectly true and spinning like whirling gyroscopes, they have been really fun to ride. Once you get up and over around 24 mph these badboys are at their best as they start to show off their aero superiority.

These wheels look cool, ride amazing, are great on rough roads, and they love high speed! I got a great deal at BTD and I really enjoy these wheels. Thank you!!

Great wheels

These are so light. Bike feels more responsive with them on. Corner well. My first set of expensive wheels and I am glad I made the purchase. I am a 72 year old rider and it was time to treat myself to some quality wheels. What fun. And they look really good on my black Roubaix.

Great all around carbon wheelset

I like that they are a bit wider but this could be a problem for some frames. I'm not a climber but I still feel quick on them when I'm on a climb and they provide great aero benefits on the flats without kicking you around the road like a deeper set of wheels can potentially do. Very happy with these wheels.
