    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.

    Looks good

    Better than doing the gold lead weights. Looks nicer too.

    Really Happy That I Bought These !!!!!

    After watching Josh's YouTube video about this product, I decided to give them a try. I have deep rim carbon wheels, and had always been cautious about getting above 35 mph due to the balance not being quite there. Once I put these weights onto the wheels, they felt MUCH more stable, and on the first ride I felt great at 42.6 mph on a downhill section, and my average speed even increased a bit ;-)

    I can't wait to do more rides to compare average speeds, and to go even faster on our big downhills here in Colorado.

    Smoother than you could imagine

    15 minutes into the first ride and I couldn't believe such a small change could make such big difference to the feel of the bike. Its the same tyre pressures and the same roads that I ride twice a week.

    The lack of vibration at higher speeds has converted me.

    I'll never run wheels without SpeedBalance again.

    It's a must have purchase.

    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.
