While carbon wheels are a popular choice among cyclists for their stiff yet comfortable ride qualities, many wheelsets are plagued with unpredictable braking especially with any hint of rain. The Reynolds Assault SLG Disc Carbon Wheelset solves all the braking issues with CenterLock disc brakes for more control and predictability than traditional road brakes when scrubbing speed in any weather. The Assault SLGs can be set up with traditional clincher tires and tubes, and are tubeless ready for riders looking to drop the tube weight and work with a wider range of tire pressure options. Wide rims give the tire beads a wider stance for increased comfort and stability, and less chance of pinch flats compared to wheels with narrower rims for both clincher and tubeless setups. Reynolds also includes its Enhanced Swirl Lip Generator SLG in this wheelset. There's a lot of wind tunnel tech behind it, but in a nutshell Reynolds added a small lip of carbon under the braking track that streamlines airflow across the spokes to reduce drag. Long story short, SLG just makes these wheels faster.
