    Ah..this'll be interesting..the general opinion is they're not that well made, if you're 92kg you don't want to find that out the hard way.

    92kg and 1200g carbon clinchers? - in a word 'crunch'
    Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..

    i had a pair of the 50mm versions with the edhub. a great set of wheels but did need retensioning after a month or so. braking was fine with the basalt rimtrack. only had them for 6 months or so, so cant report on longevity of the hubs. look great .i would buy again
