    not actually velocity fusions, no.
    same specs, though.

    hubs are rebranded dia-compe gran compe
    hand-built wheels by tony, supposedly.

    Thanks Bionnaki,

    I'm ready to pull the trigger on a set of IRO wheels. They have a black friday sale which is 10% off and free shipping.

    I'm pretty stoked on my set. have had them now for a month and they've been great. Not as deep as a Deep V, but certainly feel light and sturdy.

    i heard the hubs are formulas

    doesn't matter. i looked at some gran compes in the shop and didn't see how it would be any better in quality than a formula hub. but all sealed bearing hubs feel pretty much the same imo.

    i have nothing but great things to say about these wheels. good price, too. my front rim was bent to hell in a crash(no rim would have survived) but the rear wheel hasn't need to be trued in almost 2 years and my town has the worst roads i've ever seen.

    i recommend.

    I just got my wheelset from IRO and they did show up in a Velocity box. The wheels definitely look BADASS!!! I also bought the build kit for $135. The lockring is a formula part.I took advantage of their black friday deal which was 10% off and free shipping. Prolly saved about $50-$60 total. Everything looks great and I'm looking forward to slapping everything together on my Flite 100 frame(flat black 50cm)

    I've had a set of IRO wheels for over two years now. Not sure if they're the same wheel as now (I know they're IRO-branded Formula hubs, but I don't know what the rim is), but they've given me no trouble whatsoever. Good stuff for the price.
