Customer Review: Campagnolo Bora Ultra Carbon Wheelset

In this review, one of customers talks about his new Campagnolo Bora Ultra carbon wheels. He has plenty of experience riding different wheel manufacturers and knows that "upgrading wheels would make a tremendous difference in performance." Let's hear his thoughts in the new Campy wheels! 


I've been riding several Colnagos since 2001 when I bought my first C-40. Since then I've added a C-59 and C-60...all magical rides. All my bikes have Campagnolo groupsets (Super Record, Record, and Chorus) that have worked superbly. On each of the rigs I have been riding Mavic Ksyrium wheels and they worked fine. But I know that upgrading wheels would make a tremendous difference in performance. Being a Campy fan, I started looking into what they provided and comparing various brands.

Customer Review: Campagnolo Bora Ultra Carbon Wheelset

So last year I decided to take the plunge and bought a set of Campagnolo Bora Ultra 35's to start upgrading my fleet. The set I bought went on my C-60. I have put the wheels to the test over five thousand plus miles. Not as much as Nairo Quintana, who can tell you how good they are in the Tour and Vuelta. First off, the ride quality is as good as it gets. The braking is first rate. They slice thru the wind noticeably better than the Mavics, which is no mean feat. And since I'm not the lightest guy, durability might be an issue, but I have not had a bit of trouble. They've stayed as true as when I first put them on...over rough farm roads here in southern Illinois and the mountains of Montana. Just a wonderful investment.

This year I wanted to start upgrading the in line is the C-59...I looked around for the best deal and found Worldwide Cyclery, which not only had great prices but more importantly had 100% positive reviews on EBay. I purchased a new set of Campy Bora Ultra 35's in Feb 2017 from Worldwide Cyclery, who shipped them out pronto in bullet proof packaging and followed up with great customer support. I installed the wheels on my C-59 and my initial tests show the same high quality ride I had on my C-60 with the Bora Ultras. Worldwide Cyclery has been top notch throughout the purchase and since they are an authorized Campy dealer they will handle any warranty issues. Great deal from a first rate cycling store....
