SWOON | Ivy League Wheels at a State School Price | Princeton CarbonWorks Wheels Will Make Your Head Spin

Princeton CarbonWorks’ new carbon clincher wheelset is designed around a rim with 24 sinusoidal oscillations, creating a shape that aims to cut through the wind faster than a standard rim profile.  Alternating between 60 and 65mm deep, the WAKE 6560s are not only fast and light (1492g), but shockingly tough (see no weight limit on a 16-spoke front hub).  The ride quality is surprisingly balanced and not al all unforgiving, and while the hubs could use an upgrade, this is a reasonable place to cost-cut for overall affordability. -Chris Foster
