Manufacturer of high-performance race wheels and pioneer in carbon fiber and aero technology unveils 2015 offerings including the first road tubeless in the industry, as well as expanded road tubular and disc-brake lineups.
(Friedrichshafen, GER. - Aug. 27) – Reynolds Cycling, manufacturer of high-performance race wheels for mountain and road bikes and pioneer in carbon fiber and aero technology, unveiled 2015 offerings including the first road tubeless in the industry, as well as expanded road tubular and disc-brake lineups. These, in addition to the premium BLACKLABEL carbon mountain wheels unveiled earlier this year, will complete the changes to the 2015 catalog.
“More than anything, the 2015 product line shows Reynolds’ response to listening to our customers and bringing to market product with technical innovation to provide substantial performance benefits,” said Todd Tanner, Reynolds product manager. “AERO tubulars are in direct response to consumer requests for premium tubular options; BLACKLABEL is in direct response to consumers looking for a premium blend of strength, durability and weight as well as Reynolds' commitment to expanding our mountain offerings; and our depth in our disc-brake product shows our dedication to driving innovation and technology in a new and expanding category.”
The 2015 Performance Series—ATTACK, ASSAULT and STRIKE—will be offered as tubeless ready clinchers; the 2015 AERO line will offer tubular versions of the 46 AERO, 58 AERO and 72 AERO; and the disc brake versions of the 46 AERO (clincher only) and ATTACK.
Reynolds’ PERFORMANCE category offers the most value-packed carbon road wheels on the market featuring modern rim widths in a variety of depths and have external nipples for easy maintenance. In addition to their incredibly low weights and added aero benefits of Reynolds Enhanced SLG Technology, tubeless capability for 2015 means lower rolling resistance, improved ride quality and fewer flats.
The radically shaped AERO series wheels, first debuted in 2013, continue to impress riders, racers and editors alike with their predictability in crosswinds and flat-out speed on the open road. Born from the same DET™ technology as the RZR® 92, Reynolds AERO wheels have set the standard in deep-rim carbon wheel technology, and are now available with the added benefits of tubular design in the proven DET™ profile. The 46 AERO, 58 AERO and 72 AERO drop 260, 240 and 255 grams respectively over their clincher counterparts.
The Road Disc revolution is here, and Reynolds offers a number of distinct wheelsets to give you choices when looking for the ideal. New disc brake additions the AERO and PERFORMANCE categories couple the best of aerodynamics, lightweight and durability coupled with the all-weather performance, superior control and improved rider confidence of disc brakes.
“Reynolds is leading the charge in road disc development,” said Tanner. “It’s one of the most exciting emerging categories in road wheels—perhaps all of cycling. It opens the door for a flood of innovation.”
