The Draw: Affordable Speed

These wheels aren’t the lightest, shiniest, or most technologically advanced of the wheels tested, but for the money, they are hard to beat. The TWENTYFOUR series wheels are available in a variety of depths and even in disc brake-compatible versions. The 78s are stiff when accelerating in and out of the saddle, and they stop well in both wet and dry conditions. Though they did ride a little bit harsher than some of the others, but not by a significant amount. The wheels perform the way you expect a deep carbon wheel to—they hold speed well but are not very nimble. Considering that other wheels in the same category don’t perform significantly better in any circumstance, it’s hard to deny the value of this wheelset.
