    Neuvation aero4s for cx

    Has anybody ridden Neuvation clinchers for cross? How did they hold up?

    I have a pair as my wheel in/out for road races. Was wondering if it is just a bad idea to use them for cx. Was going to toss some mud2s on em and run them around 45 PSI (I weigh 155)

    The wheels do have John's warranty deal - so no matter what happens to them - they can be replaced.

    Just my opinion but they will not hold up. I would save them for road only.

    To be honest - I have the same opinion, but I cant figure out why.

    I ride M28sls

    I was about 150-165 last year and I did 10+ races on them and they are my training wheels as well.

    they have held up great for me. It is a bit of a myth that you need super burly wheels to hold up for cross as you have a ton of rim protection using a wide tire at low pressure.

    I have trashed 2 sets (on the road). I know three guys who have a had problems with them on the road. There is no way I would ever use a set of nuevations for cross. I gave my 3rd set to my wife for the road but she only weighs 120 lbs.

    I trained on Aero4s for road all summer and spring and they held up perfect. I'll be racing CX on them as well. I've already ridden some singletrack and general CX drills/training and they're doing great. Anyways, for ~$230 who cares, just run em till they're dead and get a new set.
