    Is anyone running these on there bike. I have looked online but haven't really found any well written reviews. My new bike has the 27.5 Aeffect wheelset and I'm wondering how it is? Thanks in advance for your replys.

    Lol, I will but I don't get to ride until tomorrow afternoon. I'm in the airport on my way back from DC. Plus I'm horrible at writing reviews because I'm not as well versed in the mountain biking ways as some on here. Lol

    I'll write your review in advance:

    I love this wheelset. Quiet and attractive. Just the right width for the bike's intended purpose. After my first 20 rides, the wheels are still true and the spokes are tight. My tires mounted up tubeless with very little problem. Not sure how long the hubs will last, and not the lightest either, but what can you expect for the price? For an economical wheelset, the Race Face Aeffect Rock!

    How did I do? It's all fabrication of course. I have no idea, but I like Race Face products, so I guessed.

    Here's what others say:

    Funny how the Turbines are cheaper than the cheaper Aeffect wheels.

    It is probably due to the fact, that with everything going wider. The Turbines have the same width as my Road bike's wheels now.
