Oval Concepts Wheels, are they any good?

I saw a set of deep Oval Concept Tubular Wheels, perhaps 80-90mm for sale locally.
Somehow I can't find anything about them except they were/are a Fuji House brand.

Perhaps using the front for my pursuit set-up.

In anycase can I get some comments on them as I may pass the info to a few teammates.

Thanks
Robert

Oval made some good stuff. Mainly focused on the TT/Triathlon crowd.

Of course, I don't have any details about the model of wheel you are considering or its condition. So, buyer beware.

Basically, I haven't heard anything particularly bad about Oval stuff.

I'll find out the model, but just wanted some general info.

Quality wise, Oval made some decent stuff. The concepts behind some of the designs were "reaching" quite a bit, but the quality was above average, but nothing spectacular.

You're not going to find much info on these wheels. They're good, I believe the rims that oval uses are the same manufacturer that makes Reynolds rims.
