Reynolds is confident that we build the best carbon rim and wheel systems in the cycling industry. All of our wheels are produced in our own facility, by our own staff, to our strict engineering specifications. Therefore, we confidently offer a lifetime warranty to the original owner of Reynolds rims.
This is an awesome wheelset, especially for routes that mix tarmac and gravel. The 21mm internal channel width mates well with 28-35mm tires. The ride quality feels fast and sufficiently supple, with zero "wind-up" which comes from a too light build. Plenty of stiffness for sprints, and low RPM steep climbs. Weight was 1541 on my digital scale, with the applied rim tape (w/o valves). Figuring tape is 8-10gms per wheel, the 1520gm stated weight is bang-on accurate. This is my 3rd Reynolds wheelset--all have proven very solid and great values.
These wheels are GREAT! If you're not worked up about aerodynamics and want a light weight wheelset that performs really well, this is the wheelset for you! Lighter than Bontrager and Specialized wheels at the same price point. The Specialized wheel is more aero but about 80g heavier. For $1,300 you cant beat this wheelset.
