Anyone who has ridden a corima aero please tell me how the ride. Are they a good pair of hoops for flat roads, constant speeds, and cornering all of that stuff. How do the wheels ride overall, please tell me all of the good stuff and the bad. This will help me a lot, please.

Thanks guys

    Nice wheels, quite light - my tubular front wheel lasted precisely one race due to the potholes of Surrey - it was repairable though. The same impact would have totalled a clincher rim - don't know why anyone rides carbon clinchers TBH.
    Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..

    I've never figured that out either.

    Because people want the look but have some wierd perception that tubs are too tricky to live with. TBF people who ride socially do not want the extra tub in their back pocket and it makes sense to have clinchers for the majority of folk.

    Oh for a team car full of spares.

    If you must have carbon clinchers the Corima ones seem as good as any, and better than many.
    Yellow is the new Black.
