The Reynolds Cycling Strike Carbon Wheelset is designed for aerodynamic speed at any time trial, triathlon, or criterium. Featuring a lightweight, stiff, 62mm-deep carbon rim, the Strike slices through the wind on its way to victory, and with its 25mm-wide Swirl Lip Generator rim, it basically propels itself.
Starting with the 62mm-deep hoops, the Strike features Reynolds' Swirl Lip Generator technology. This strategically placed lip (located near the spoke face) helps turbulent air passing over the wheel to reattach to the spoke face, decreasing side force on the rim and reducing drag but up to 20%. Internally, the 17mm-wide rim channel boasts tubeless compatibility to add untold versatility, comfort, and performance to the mix. All that speed wouldn't do much help if stopping was a problem, and luckily with Reynolds' Cryogenic Glass Transition braking surface, the Strike does away with all the negative characteristics of a carbon brake track, outperforming non-CTg systems by 53%.
Down below, the CNC-machined alloy Reynolds Allroads hubs add stiffness without adding weight. Featuring 20 spokes up front and 24 in the rear, the Allroads hubs feature 36 points of engagement, engaging ever 10º to provide rapid, reliable power transfer.
