Prime rr-50 wheelset? Or stick with Giant slr1

Hi all, I ride a Giant TCR advanced Pro with OEM 30mm slr1 wheelset. I fancy some deeper wheels (doubt I'll go any faster, but I'll feel more like a 'proper' triathlete ????). Came across Primes rr-50 which seem amazingly cheap for aero carbon wheels so wondering why? Anyone got any thoughts or experience??

    Just be aware of the reasons for wheels costing what they do when you purchase. 

    In life you do tend to get what you pay for. 

  • I have these exact wheels, and have had no bother with them at all. They look great (dark grey decals), are fairly light and I have been able to set them up tubeless with very little fuss (Hutchinson fusion tubeless). I think at the moment they are on special offer as they are being superseded by a newer model, but for the price I think they are great.

    Having said that, these are the first pair of carbon deep-section wheels I have owned, so very little to compare them to. Plus I've only every used them in good, dry weather and only for about 4 months so far.

    PS - British Cycling membership gets you an extra 10% off at Chain Reaction. I did this and got a further £50 off, so they cost me £450.

  • Thanks Martin that's great feedback
