I haven't found carbon disc wheels for cheaper and the 12 month 0% with PayPal is a bit easier. Comes with tyres and tubes. For info these are centre lock

Those wheels are tiny.
1750g for the pair. Not light but they are cheap
Cheap carbon beware. Had older primes and they were very flexible. Lost 30 percent of spoke tension when you inflated the tyre. And it went out of true. Maybe the newer ones are just a better. Just for info if anyone is interested but I Compared to a campag bora wto where where no spoke tension is lost on inflation to 100 psi . Hence the huge cost of the latter wheels.

Maybe a stupid question but is spoke tension an easy fix if this happens. Seems to me a quick trip to the lbs would over come this or are you saying the spokes and nipples are rubbish?

It's the rims rather than the spokes that's the issue. And if you tension the spokes up with tyre fitted, when you let the tyre down to replace it or if you get a puncture the spokes get too tight and I had snappage just realising the air!

Okay, that's a worry I just bought them. I think there was one review similar to what you found. Anyway, I imagine there's some kind of warranty if it's a manafacturing fault?

Yes you could warranty them. Better off buying a set of nice alloy hoops for this money
