American Classic Victory 30, Seven best wheelsets
Cycling Weekly Verdict

Gusty winds made me question whether I'd be able to handle them full time. Other than that though, a competitive set-up worth considering if a deeper rim is your preference.

Reasons to buy

    Good 'aero' package

    Watch out for crosswinds

On paper, these are the wheels for the ‘aero' fans.

The deepest rim here, at 30mm (hence the name) should help cut through the air and shave precious seconds from your PB.

They're quite light, especially considering the extra rim depth, and they pick up and accelerate quickly.

When you're zipping along there's no fuss with rougher roads and they generally help smooth out the riding experience.

All in all they're a good package, but only in the best weather conditions.
