Nowhere will you find a carbon clincher wheelset with an aggressive 66 mm profile priced for what you would expect to pay for the finest, standard-depth alloy rims. That is the idea behind the Reynolds Strike.
The Strike starts with Reynolds exclusive unidirectional carbon fibre layup process in a symmetrical air foil shape recognized as having an exceptionally low drag coefficient. It permits a shorter spoke length for less drag and a smooth ride. It is fast, quick, stiff, solid and exceptionally smooth.
The Reynolds Strike features:
Unidirectional carbon fibre,
A scrim layer in the carbon braking surface,
New, improved Reynolds-specific hubs,
Standard J-bend spokes,
A very attractive price.
The Reynolds Strike technical data is:
Rim Depth: 66 mm
Spoke Patterns: 16/20
Weight: 1690 grams per set
Hubs: Reynolds-Specific Design
Front Spokes: (Radial) DT Revolution
Rear Spokes: (Radial, 2x Drive) DT Revolution and DT Competition
Roll up to the line on a pair of these, and you?ll command plenty of respect, and quite a few envious stares or at least thats what the Kinesis UK Racing team did as these are the weapon of choice for them!
