    Details

    Ready for a flat-free life on the road.

    Tubeless tires are so common in mountain biking that folks start to look at you funny when you talk about tubes, but the tech hasn’t gained a ton of traction on the road side, due to a multitude of variables. One variable was the lack of high-end, technologically-advanced, and aerodynamic wheels for tubeless tires. Well, Reynolds just fixed that one with the Assault SLG Wheelset.

    The Assault SLG is every bit the aero-minded, mid-depth rim you’d expect from Reynolds, but you can run tubeless tires on them without worry. At first blush, road tubeless doesn’t seem to offer a lot of benefit aside from avoiding the occasional mini-pump embarrassment, but when you start to think about rougher roads, wider tires, and lower pressures, tubeless starts to make a lot more sense. So, whether you’re racing at Roubaix, or lighting up the local gravel scene, the Assault SLG will deliver aerodynamic benefit to go along with reduced rolling resistance, and that means speed.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I don't care to have a stable full of road wheels, so for the time being, I have choosen to go with only one. For the last 3 years, that has meant either their 46 Aero or the Assault SLG. I have to say that the narrow difference in performance from the Assault to the Aero 46 is astounding as the Assaults are just as good in nearly every category! Dare I say; they handle even better in cross winds.



    These are light enough for the biggest climbs, and stable enough to handle the corresponding descents with daredevil confidence. The riding in Salt Lake is anything but flat (even the land between canyons is rather undulating); so all-around is the only wheel category to go for, and the Assaults fit perfectly in this box.



    If you are looking for one wheelset that can do it all from training to racing, to your wildest alpine adventures, the Assaults would be a great choice!



    For additional information, please feel free to reach out to me directly.

    I love them

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have been riding these wheels for 4 months now on 2 different bikes and they ride awesome. I feel like they are a versatile wheel for flats and some climbing, no problems at all so far. Braking power is great (using Reynolds blue pads). I highly recommend them.

    Does the job

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I raced and trained on these last year. I did not have any problems with them. I used the blue brake pads with them exclusively. I did not take them to the Alps or anything so I can't say what they would do on half hour descents, but they were acceptable braking. They make a strange tweeting sound, but do stop. No where as good as aluminum, and miles away from the Campy Mille or Mavic Ksyrium SLR etc. Fairly stiff and durable. Faster than others? Don't know. But they were not too bad in cross winds. Good value.
