The 2014 Reynolds Assault SLG Carbon Clincher features quality workmanship and construction in a sub-1500 gram 41mm section wheel at a budget-friendly price. In fact, this wheel favorably compares to similar wheel costing over a thousand dollars more.
Reynold's Assault is traditionally one of their most popular wheels ever and now has been significantly upgraded with Reynolds' Enhanced Swirl Lip Generator®. It also boasts a new 41 mm depth and 25 mm width. Swirl Lip Technology refers to Reynold's proprietary technology designed to smooth turbulence and pressure drag with an advanced rim shape. The Assault SLG is lighter and stiffer than its predecessors and ideal for a wide range of terrain and demands.
This wheelset can do it all from crits to climbs as well as time trials and triathlons. The Assault features a 41mm cross-section which many find is the ideal balance of aerodynamics and weight. The 41mm helps to reduce watts required and offer an increasing advantage as speeds increase. But the 41mm section is not adversely affected by crosswinds which can be an issue with some of the super deep rims. The new 25mm external width enhances aerodynamics, lessons buffeting from crosswinds and enhances tire performance.
Compatible for Shimano, Shimano 11 speed and SRAM. Includes skewers, rim tape, rim strips, Reynolds Cryo-Blue brake pads, valve extenders and spacers.
