RACE SL - 210lbs (95kg)
RACE SLR - 240lbs (109kg)

CARBON C45R - 240lbs (109kg)
NOTE: Roadies and Triathletes exceeding the recommended
weight limits on the Volant, Race SL, and D'Huez should consider a
higher spoke-count (24/28) build found in the Volant R/T, the Race SLR,
and the D'Huez 24/28. A few extra spokes at just 4 grams each will provide improved
strength and lateral stiffness. Heavier or more powerful riders require added stiffness
for adequate and safe power transmission.

For Campagnolo, we support 9, 10 and 11 speed. For the Race SL, D’Huez, and Carbon wheels, please
specify 11 speed on the order and a special spacer will be provided.

mechanic can replace the spoke with a standard J-Bend spoke and get you
back on the road. It is important however that your mechanic bring the
wheel to high and consistent spoke tension. We can provide spoke tension
“spec” to your favorite bike shop upon request.
