Lexco Rolls with Vuelta Wheelsets

Norridge, Illinois
Lexco Rolls with Vuelta Wheelsets

Vuelta wheels have been deemed the fastest wheels in the world ever since Ondrej Sosenka shattered the hour record racing Vuelta Carbon Pro wheels. And now Lexco is distributing Vuelta wheels.

Made in Italy, Vuelta wheels come in various weights and aerodynamics both in tubular and clincher rims and Vuelta or Shimano hubs. The wheelsets feature their own aftermarket packaging, which makes them both attractive and great sell-throughs. And many of the wheelsets come wrapped with Michelin clincher tires including the amazing entry-level Vuelta Starlite wheelset (road or mtb) featuring Shimano hubs, Michelin tires and a retail price of only $199.99.

Vuelta wheelsets distributed by Lexco include:


Carbon Pro Chromo WR - Features a Monocoque Carbon Fiber Tubular rim, rear disc wheel and a four-spoke Monocoque Carbon Fiber front wheel. MSRP: $3,999.99.

Carbon Pro WR - Complete with Zipp "highwall" full carbon fiber rim with CNC'd Alpina alloy spokes. Comes in both tubular and clincher versions, silver and black. Clincher rims feature Michelin Krylion Carbon tires. MSRP: $1,999.99.

Carbon Pro - Similar to the Carbon Pro WR wheelset but with Vuelta carbon fiber rim for more affordability. Comes in both tubular and clincher versions, silver and black. Clincher rims come wrapped with Michelin Krylion Carbon tires. MSRP: $1,399.99.

Carbon Pro Matrix - A clincher-only wheelset featuring carbon fiber rims with Alpina CNC spokes. Michelin Pro Race II clincher tires complete the package. Available in silver or black. MSRP: $1,099.99.

StarLite - An entry-level wheelset featuring Shimano hubs, alloy rims and spokes, and Michelin Country Trail tires. MSRP: $199.99. A great price-point for a great wheelset.

"Vuelta wheels are the greatest value in aftermarket wheels," says Karen Peterson of Lexco. "The wheelsets are made in Italy, feature Shimano or Vuelta hubs, Michelin tires, and various price points. Plus, Vuelta wheels are shipped in their own bright, attractive packaging which means they can be hung or set anywhere in a shop producing a nice display."

Says Tom Curran of Vuelta: "Through many decades of hard work, Lexco has earned the reputation of being one of the stellar distributors in the U.S. mostly by offering impeccable customer service and excellent products. We are extremely pleased Lexco will be distributing Vuelta wheels and look forward to a long-term joint effort in selling the world's fastest wheels."
