May being Giro d’Italia month we have embraced the Italian cycling scene and kicked it off with a visit to our wheel supplier Miche in San Vendemiano.
As we’re a Miche approved supplier we enjoyed a tour of the factory. It was a great opportunity to learn more about the new technology behind the wheels. Miche wheels are entirely made in Italy and the quality control is legendary.
The star of the visit as far as we were concerned was the Syntium AXY wheelset. These wheels are as at home in a Pro peloton as they are on a long distance cycle tour. An amazing all round wheel for nearly £200 less than over popular Ksyium Elites.
Don’t take our word on it though,
“If you’re looking to inject a bit of performance into your ride without breaking the bank, the Syntium AXY wheelset from Italian component manufacturer Miche would be a good place to start. These wheels offer stiffness, a decent build quality and a respectable weight.”
“The stiffness is what has impressed me the most, though. You can really whack the power through the Miches without any lateral movement at the rim.”
“Proves you don’t have to spend a fortune to get a top performing wheelset”
Along with the Syntiums we also have in stock
- SWR 38mm carbon clinchers
- Revox Disc carbon clinchers
- Pistard track wheels
- Syntium AXY Disc version
Plus we can get any Miche product very quickly
We are an approved dealer and test centre so if you fancy trying out the top of the range carbon SWR wheel set drop in and see us and arrange a test ride.
Continuing the Italian theme, over the next three weeks we’ll be featuring some of the best Italian bikes that as a Cinelli and Colnago specialist we focus on.
