I picked these up to replace a set of DT Swiss wheels that came with the bike; I'm looking to upgrade to a 2x11 setup and my old wheels were not compatible. I would rate them as being about the same; the weights of the two wheelsets were virtually identical. For a rim brake, they work well, as expected. They seem a tad stiffer than my original wheelset. The downside is the bearings don't run nearly as smoothly as the cartridge bearing in the DT Swiss wheels. The rims are great, I'm just not 100% sold on cup and cone bearings (I know, they're supposed to be better for lateral loads and more durable...). I appreciate that the new wheels came with QR skewers, valve stems to run the wheels tubeless (yes, the wheels are tubeless ready), and with two spoke wrenches (each wrench has two ends-one to turn the nipple the the other to hold the bladed spoke).
I have been using Rolf Wheels on my road bike for 15 years, I used the Rolf vigor on my road bike, they are fast and strong. I have hit potholes strait on before and never have any of my wheels come out of true. On the down hill extremely fast. Bearings are easy to service. One tip replace your bearings at least every other year or every year if you ride in the rain. I just bought the Rolf prima Hyalite for my gravel bike that I am building, cant wait to try them.
Internal sealing tape on front rim was peeling off at the end. Tape was reattached without issue.
The front wheel started making a rattling noise. It turned out to be a spoke nipple that was left inside the front rim. Had to take apart the tubeless tire, clean out sealant, and extract the nipple from valve stem hole.
After fixing these quality spill issues, the wheels turned out to be great. Setting up the tubeless tires on these wheels was easy. Cassette (xD) and disc installation presented no problems. These wheels proved to be light, roll very well, and seem strong enough for heavy rider such as myself.
I assume that these are pretty much exactly the same as the WH-6800's. They are such a good solid wheel!! The first 15,000 miles I didn't even have to true them but started having a little issue with the wheels coming out of true but I just replaced the 2 spokes that kept getting lose and I haven't had to true them for the last 10,000 miles. I mostly ride mountain roads that are pretty rough, bunny hope over big cracks and huge pot holes, I also ride quite a bit of gravel and these wheels hold up much better than any wheel I've ever had. I mostly run tubeless tires on these wheels and I love that you don't even have to prep them with tubeless tape because the wheel is already sealed. You just need the tubeless valve, tubeless tire, air, and sealant. Oh and I've never broken a spoke, I can't say that about any other wheelset that I've had. If you are on a low budget, these are the wheels to get. I've always wanted to get some nice carbon wheels for racing but I've trained and raced with these on the last 2 bikes I've owned and for me, they're fast enough. I'm not sure how much faster I could go with better wheels but these have done me well.
