Faster going up, faster coming down. That much fast wins a lot of races.
Climb to the top faster when aboard the Reynolds RZR 46 Team Wheelset. This aerospace-ready, full-carbon set of tubular wheels tips the scales at a microscopic 1,199 grams. And did we mention they're 46 millimeters deep? Reynolds accomplishes these twin feats through the use of proprietary carbon fiber construction that molds the spoke into the rim and into the hub body, thus creating a super stiff, strong, and durable wheel that never needs to be trued.
- Swirl Lip Generator rim profile encourages disturbed air to move across the rim's surface more quickly, resulting in increased speed
- KEVLAR® reinforcement in the rim and spokes increases stiffness without adding weight
- NACA 0033 carbon fiber spokes provide better aerodynamics than a bladed steel spoke
- Includes Reynolds Cryo Blue carbon-specific brake pads

How do these stand out against lightweight...
How do these stand out against lightweight obermeyers?
Lightweights are better, although that is opinion. I wouldn't jump on these wheels until they have more miles in use/longer track record, especially considering the Paul Lew connection. Lightweight, meanwhile, has a proven track record. Of course, I should add that I have never ridden a Reynolds wheelset and have two Lightweight wheelsets (Standard III and Ventoux with Tune hub-still not sure which is faster). I guess you can replace a spoke on the RZR . . . but if you never break a spoke on a Lightweight wheel, does that matter? (I believe the Standards have even been used for cross country races by professional riders in the past).
i have heard of them being used in a cc race as well.without a tragic ending either i must add.i sell reynolds and i have only ever had three wheels come back with a broken spoke.and two were from rider negligence.and the third was a curb while the rider was trying to get his cell phone out of the back pouch of his jersey.the second the guys bike was laying down a someone backed into it and stepped on the wheel and broke the spoke.and the third was a group of bikes three tipped over and one bikes peddle came down right on the spoke and bingo snapped.so realy i have never heard one story of a spoke breaking because of a non quality wheelset.but thats in my small world.im sure it could happen i just have never heard of it.two of the three got replaced under warrenty with no problem.the other was after the warrenty and they wouldnt fix it,but the did sell me the spokes to fix reasonably cheap.so couldve been worse i gues. great company as far as im concerned and even better products
