A full carbon aerodynamic advantage at a more approachable price. Reynolds' Assault Tubular Wheelset features an identical rim profile and similar performance to their pricier Forty-Six model, with a slightly different carbon layup process and more affordable materials.
The new carbon layup does more than save you money at the bank, its specifically engineered to balance affordability with a great blend of stiffness and weight savings. The versatile 46mm profile offers lateral stiffness and great aerodynamics while still maintaining a reasonable rotational weight. The result is a wheel that won't drag you down on the climbs, descends like a rocket and performs great on flat terrain as well. Reynolds has also added the CTg system to the sidewall for an exceptional improvement in braking performance.
20 spokes front, laced radially. 24 spokes rear laced 2x on the drive side and radially on the non-drive side. Internal nipples further improve aerodynamics, and super-butted DT Swiss Revolution spoke offer an additional weight reduction with exceptional strength.
The Reynolds branded hubs are designed by KT to maintain a lower price tag while ensuring smooth, reliable performance. Available in Shimano/SRAM 8/9/10 only. 622 ISO (700c).
Actual weight: 560g Front, 743g Rear (Shimano), 1313g Set (weighed without included QR skewers).
Includes quick release skewers, valve extenders, Cryo Blue Carbon Compound Brake Pads, rim strips, and spoke wrench for hidden nipples.
