We have been really impressed by other Kinesis wheels that we have
tried previously and this new 650b set stands out as a great balance of
practical performance and price. Maxlights impressively stiff and taut
when cornering or torquing hard through the pedals. They are light too,
with a fast reacting freehub flattering their already responsiveness
…they are easily convertible from quick release to thru-axle and their overall performance to price ratio makes them our 650b upgrade wheels test winner.
