You normally don’t see much change from a grand after purchasing a set of carbon fibre wheels, so CES Sport has priced its RC50s very competitively at just £600. Value isn’t the only quality either, it’s a solid set of wheels that’ll stand up to daily riding in a range of terrains.
When up to speed the CES Sport RC 60/88 Elite Clincher Wheelset performed admirably – helping me achieve a Strava KOM and some fast bike splits (considering some were done on a road bike as opposed to a time trial/triathlon bike) – and the DT Swiss hubs felt good, with the hoops rolling well.
CES Sport was started by Joe and officially launched in Decemebr 2016, he says “ When I started to look around at some of the major brand wheels, I wouldn’t get any change from £1-2k, the kind of money I don’t have just lying about, so I started on a quest to bring to market a product for the ‘Joe Bloggs’ of the triathlon and cycling world, whilst maintaining high quality and not cutting corners.”
CES Sport was set up in 2016 by Joe, himself a keen triathlete and cyclist. His aim being to make quality wheels at an affordable price to all levels of rider. ZIPP, Lightweight, HED are all fierce competitors, but with a fierce price tag. Joe found the gap in the market.
