The alloy rim is strong and stiff, employs a low spoke count and sports an aerodynamic shallow-V profile. The 20 front spokes are radially-laced, while the rear employs 24 spokes laced in a two-cross drive on the drive side, and a radial pattern on the non-drive. Nipples reside at the rim's exterior for easy maintenace. The hubs are aluminum and employ sealed cartridge bearings.
The 31mm rim depth was key in helping Reynolds achieve this important balance between performance and durability. The rim's design not only helps keep rotational weight low, with enough depth to foster some aerodynamic efficiency, its 20mm external/18mm internal width also gives you a solid platform for cornering. Yes, you can spend a lot more on wheels. But use the Solitudes for climbing, sprinting or long tempo rides. You'll find they do just fine.
The Solitude SE 11 wheelset is available with either a Shimano or SRAM 11-speed freehub body and includes a pair of Reynolds' Chromoly Black skewers. rim strips and cassette spacers.
