Best known for their Exposure lights, Brit company USE has rolled into the wheel market. The Road 8.0 tubulars are the deepest wheelset they offer (aside from a disc) and are competitively priced for the rim depth.

They weigh in at 1,627g, while USE claim that the 25mm rim profile is proven to be aerodynamic at a range of yaw angles. They were also put through wind tunnel tests, where a ‘nano surface finish’ was developed that reportedly reduces drag and makes it harder for dirt to cling to the rims.
