In terms of quality and performance, the Blade 2G wheels are great. On the road they roll fast and ride nicely. The ability to customize the look of the wheels is a differentiating feature that you won’t find with most other wheels. Wheel weight is always a concern with deeper section rims, and the Blade wheels' CNC filament-wound rims help keep these wheels light enough to be used in the hills. And for high quality carbon hoops, they're reasonably priced, as well.
