Editorial Reviews

Bike Radar

With 25mm Vittoria Corsa SC tubulars fitted, we found a wheelset that couldn’t help itself. Tubulars always give a plush feel, but even at high pressures, the Quranos have a very forgiving ride. The low rotational mass makes attacking digs, sprints and punching out of corners extremely rapid indeed. They’re as solid as they come, with a width that gives confident handling stability. The shallower front rim helps keep the steering light, and though they don’t lead the class for crosswind performance, they’re well above average, and braking is excellent. These are among the best-stopping carbon wheels we’ve tested.

The Qurano's combination of low rotating mass and solid build quality results in a really punchy and responsive feel - precisely what you want from race wheels. When used for climbing they felt eager to push onward, and even on the steepest gradients the wheels didn’t flinch. There wasn’t the slightest hint of brake rub either.

Light, strong, and fast, the Qurano 46 wheels are worth a look for racers in search of hoops for the climbs and descents. Easily serviceable and generally reliable, they’re a worthy addition to an all-rounder race bike.
