Mantel R50 TLR wheelset

Postby redvision » Sat Sep 14, 2019 12:32 pm

Just wondering if anyone has tried the mantel carbon wheels?

https://www.mantel.com/uk/mantel-r50-tl ... ike-wheels

Seem to get good reviews on their website and with the current discount they are quite an attractive price.

Are they any better than wiggles prime carbon wheelset?

Much the same as Prime Black Editions which in turn are similar to a these, but these are a bit lighter and significantly cheaper

Thanks for the info. Quite like some of the colour schemes available on time mantels tbh and seem a good price, especially time combo with the gp5000.

That said, if they are no better than the primes or the Amazon ones you linked above then may not be as good value as first seems.

Can't comment about the actual wheels, but have found Mantel very good to buy from. Prompt delivery, good prices and good back up in terms of order tracking etc.
