- New Cyclocross Wheels with the 3 Peaks in mind?
Need a new back wheel for my Cyclocross bike and have a place in the 3 peaks this year.
Looking for something Cheap and strong. For £120 the Campagnolo Khamsin CX Cyclocross Wheelset looks good, but is it up to the job?
For the record the only time I have done the peaks before I no punctures or problems from my 2008 Specialized Roval wheels, but the new Rovals are a bit out of my budget,the Campagnolo seem much better value.Posted 4 years agoclubberMember
If you’re talking about G3 type Khamsins (not sure if there are any non-G3 but…) then I would avoid for three peaks. Not because they’re funamentally bad wheels (though IME they are heavy for the money) but I’ve seen a rim go where it took a rock impact right between the groups of spokes (eg the most unsupported section of the rim). Maybe just unlucky but given the rocks at three peaks I’d be looking at a more even spoke patterned wheel.Posted 4 years agosomafunkSubscriber
Have you thought about the Kinesis Crosslight CX wheelset ?, i’ve just taken delivery of my Kinesis Tripster ATR and it came with a set of these wheels and i’m impressed with the hubs and build quality of the wheels, the rim is a specific cx designed rim by WTB with triple butted spokes.Posted 4 years ago
