shouldn't be any problem. I know a bike shop owner riding them and weighs over 220.

If they are at least as strong as the Vector Pros that preceded them, then they should be pretty darn tough. I ride them at the recommendation of one of the shop manager I work with who is about 205. He has used the Pros as his commuter wheels for the past four or five years and has never had to true them. I rode my this summer about 2500 miles and never had to worry about them. The Vigor should be stronger and more aero because of the deeper V rim, but I don't know that for fact.

I have the Vector Pro's with about 6k miles on them in two years w/out a problem. I weigh 220lbs.

I would suspect the new version would be just as durable.
