I got a new bike and on my first ride I got a pinch flat. So the first thing I did was get this wheelset. I was already interested in tubeless because I like to do some dirt road riding occasionally. After putting these wheels on I immediately saw a 1-2 mph increase in speed, due to the less rolling resistance compared to the stock wheelset that came on my synapse. Also the fact these wheels came completely set up for tubeless was super nice. I got a pair of Zipp tubeless-ready tires and they mounted fairly well but I had to use an air compressor to mount the tires, but it was fairly easy. The only complaint that I have about these wheels is that the interior part of the presta valve is not removable, which makes putting sealant in the tires a bit harder.
