Picks up speed okay and rolls well, with excellent braking
Skip to view product specifications

Reynolds’ disc is a straightforward solid performer with particularly good braking. It’s a full-carbon wheel, but with dead-flat sides and a very broad, squared rim edge that produces a noticeable edge between tyre and wheel.

Mid weight means it picks up speed okay and it rolls well too, with a firm, but not too harsh, feel and only slight brake rub if you really throw it round a corner or hammer a climb. The recessed valve cup means easy inflating.

The excellent braking response from the rim surface treatment and Cryo Blue brake pads really boosts confidence and there’s a ‘try before you buy’ scheme too. The ultra-light skewer and padded wheel bag are a nice touch for the price.
