Pacenti SL23 Clincher Wheelset
The Pacenti SL23 with its wide 24mm width, aero-profile and competitive weight of 450g could claim it as the ultimate alloy clincher? Probably. It checks all the boxes: lightweight, strong, aero, wide and durable. It’s machined brake surface is superb providing very predictable and strong braking absent of any annoying brake pulsing. The wear indicator lets you know when the rim is due for replacement, but don’t expect that to happen too soon as the G609 alloy used is very durable, more so than 6061 or the popular lightweight niobium alloys. This is one of my favourite rims and is tubeless ready.
MADE TO ORDER
Vision Metron 40 Carbon Tubular Disc Wheelset
Brand New and in stock and ready to ship. Ready for the new generation of disc brake-equipped road and cyclocross bikes, the Metron 40 Tubular Disc wheelset uses the same full carbon 40mm deep tubular rim section as the regular Metron 40. To cope with the forces generated by disc brakes, the Metron 40 Disc uses 24 J-bend spokes at the front and 28 at the rear, all bladed for aerodynamic efficiency. Lightweight alloy hubs run on sealed cartridge bearings for low friction and easy maintenance. Hand built attention to detail ensures durability.
