Reynolds Assault OE Tubular Carbon WheelsetReynolds developed the Assault tubular carbon wheelset to deliver great performance at a lower price point than their popular Forty Six wheels. By incorporating a more affordable carbon compound and a different layup, Reynolds' engineers managed to create a wheel that features the same rim profile as the pricier wheels, yet doesn't make any sacrifices when it comes to stiffness, aerodynamics or light weight.
But that's not where the similarities end. The Assault wheels also feature Reynolds' proprietary CTg sidewall technology to eliminate excess heat build-up and improve all-around braking performance. If you've ever experienced the panic that the combination of a fast, winding descent and fading brakes can induce, you'll truly appreciate the Assault designers' ingenuity--and their bean counters' willingness to offer this feature on a moderately priced wheel.
For the ultimate synthesis of strength, stiffness and rotational weight savings, Assault Tubulars are radially laced with 20 super-butted DT Swiss Revolution spokes up front, and 24 rear spokes laced radially on the non-drive side and 2x on the drive side.
Reynolds Assault tubular carbon wheels come with Cryo Blue brake pads (the only ones Reynolds recommends for use with these wheels), and lightweight quick release skewers.
These wheels are eligible for the Reynolds Assurance Program.
