    Sold & shipped by Wheel and Sprocket Inc.

    Walmart.com is a marketplace like Sears, Amazon, Rakuten/Buy.com, where 3rd parties can reach the same people searching the Walmart site.

    Nothing to be alerted by. I was looking up sub $500 ebikes on Walmart a short while ago to see how low they have gone (seen one in Costco, and was just curious). Seen those wheels for less on ebay.
    We're all on the same ship, and it's sinking.

    Welcome to the internet and the wonderful world of 3rd party sellers.

    Not a bad deal for an XC wheelset.

    Yes for real and legit. Highend wheels and not a copy. 3rd party sell from bike shop so Walmart is just the marketing/website the shop is using to sell these. I know because I bought a set from Walmart. Arrived on time in a few days. I am 99% sure no walmart employee touched them.

    WalMart is brilliant for letting vendors use their web site as an online storefront, whereas otherwise you'd might not be able to afford such a large audience.

    Yup. Totally copied the Amazon strategy there. Also, it appears after they aquired jet.com, you can pretty much order anything now.
