Very handsome WR50 wheelset, perfectly matches my frame. Built with i9 Torch CL hubs, Sapim CX-Ray spokes, and Sapim alloy nipples. Tire clearance is quite good on my Tarmac SL6; brand-new 28 mm Vittoria Corsa Controls measure exactly 31 mm, with rear chainstay tire clearances of ~3.9 mm on each side and front clearances of slightly more than 6 mm on both sides and the top of the tire. Both wheels are as true as I can measure with them on the frame. I don't have a tension meter, but plucking the spokes reveals no variation in tone between spokes on the same side of the wheel. Can't yet speak as to their durability, but I have high hopes, since my friend's identically-specced (hubs, spokes, nipples) AR56 wheelset has seen several thousand miles of abuse and remains in near-flawless condition, and the build quality of my own wheels is similarly high.
