The Race24 are back!
These were a hit a few years ago until the last batch of rims were so light they couldn't handle high pressures and we were forced to stop using them. Now a new rim is here and they are SOLID. Much testing over the last 6months (indoors and out!) and they haven't faltered.
Built with Sapim CX-Rays and brass nipples for every hub option. 1495g +/- 3%
Both our in-house wheel tester and the local ex-Scottish champ and commented:
"Perfect for an upgrade over standard wheels - transforms the bike"
"Much better feel than 'superlight' clinchers. Shimano C24 feel like spaghetti in comparison."
"They've got everything I'd be looking for in a hilly race-wheel and aren't going to fall to bits."
"The wind was howling and it just blew straight through them."
"Over the years my Hunts, Halo, Profile & Roval wheels fell apart - these are gonny be bombproof."
These rims have won Scottish National Criterium Champs on Chris King hubs.

Ideal for Race & Sportive use, competing in hilly terrain or if your not typically riding in the "aero zone" (lower than 18mph for example)
Up to 85kg rider weight, spoke count is 20/24h. Other spoke counts available.
Shimano free hub bodies for all hub choices are 11sp, with spacers for 9/10sp supplied.
Campagnolo also available.
Choose these over the Race30 if you are; a lighter rider, if you are primarily interested in climbing or if weight is a priority over aero performance. Choose Race30 as the entry-level aero option for everyday allrounders.
