Our best-selling alloy clincher wheelset is the Race SL and a favorite with racers and enthusiasts looking for a wheelset with precise handling, ride quality and speed. It's the perfect wheelset for road racing, criteriums and triathlon. It's already one of the best-reviewed bike wheels on the market and for 2014 we made it even better.

We've improved the Race SL wheelset with a new rim profile that is wider and stiffer. At 23mm wide, our new rim design improves tire performance by shortening the tire's sidewalls and producing a wider contact patch and the 28mm rim profile provides confidence-inspiring confidence in the turns as well as the stiffness and aerodynamics that seasoned riders demand. 

We lace our innovative rim to our own ROL hubs, designed with years of wheel building experience. The hubs minimize the spoke tension differential on the rear wheel, producing a more evenly tensioned wheel for maximum durability. To complete the package we spec'd the sought after Sapim CX Ray spokes and lightweight DT SWISS alloy ProLock nipples.

At 1,555 grams, the Race SL wheelset provides a lively ride you'll appreciate when you accelerate out of crit corners, or head out for the county line sprint.

“Sean, I just wanted to let you know that the wheels are outstanding!  It feels like peddling on air...man these things are FAST, FAST, FAST.  Any opportunity I get to let others know about the wheels, I'll do it.  It was a pleasure meeting you and making the purchase.”     - Rick

“I am so pleased with this wheelset! I finally got to ride on them this weekend. So much faster than the OEM wheels. These babies climb. I could not believe the pick up in speed from past rides on the route I ran today. Super happy customer here! Smooth, fast, and stiff.”     - Royce

“After reading the reviews on these wheels, I decided to give the Race SL a try. At this price, it was worth a shot anyway. Well, I must say I was blown away by the difference that made [from my Mavic Ksyrium Elite] on the first ride. Really cool set of wheels, feels like riding an aero bike. I only wished I had switched sooner. I will not ride anything else from now on. The wider rim adds stability, feels like being on rail. Any casual rider thinking about upgrading their Ksyrium should ditch Mavic and try these.”     - Nick
