    Wheel Balance. As carbon rims have become deeper, the longer valve stems have created a growing imbalance problem for the wheel. The rims themselves are already 2-8 grams heavier at the valve as the area has to be heavily reinforced with carbon to prevent collapse of the hole.  Then the inner tube overlap/seam are at the valve, (in tubulars, the base tape also overlaps here), the valve stem has a 2 ply rubber reinforcement at the valve, and finally the metal valve stem which is all heavier than the carbon fiber in the rest of the wheel.  In total, a 60mm deep wheel typically has 10-16 grams of imbalance at the valve which is barely noticeable to the rider, but an 82mm deep rim requires an additional 20-25mm of valve extender adding another 3-4 grams.

    Good

    Efficient product, I did need to use some silicone sealant to make sure they stuck to the wheel, my Zipp wheels are new so maybe I had some factory product on them maybe.

    Simple but made sense

    I never thought of balancing my wheels before seeing this product but it made sense when I considered we do it for the car and on house fans. Easy to install and did make a difference when I hold the seat post and spin the cranks now there is hardly any shimmy. I question how effective this would be over time with tubeless setup since you can get lumps of dried latex which would through it off balance again but time will tell.

    Speed Balance

    This is an incredible product. It’s amazing how this concept finally trickled down to bicycles. I train for fun. I’m 70 years old and I simply enjoy riding at speed. It’s nice to know that my bicycle isn’t working against me when I exceed 30 mph. This product may not appeal to the casual cyclist, but if you want to exceed what you thought was possible previously, test Speed Balance. It may exceed what you didn’t even know you were seeking.

    SpeedBalance Lacks Instructions

    I bought a set of SpeedBalance in 2020. The new SpeedBalance comes with 2 units that appear to have weights in them. How do I use them? No instructions were included.
