2015 Triathlete Buyer’s Guide: Wheels

Reynolds Strike SLG

$1,950, Reynoldscycling.com
The draw: Top-level aerodynamics at a mid-level price

The modern wide bulge section rims of the Strike SLG offer aerodynamics that are competitive with wheels that cost significantly more as well as crosswind stability that exceeds many. The carbon braking surface, in combination with Reynolds Cryto pads, provides strong and well-modulated dry braking, better than almost any carbon rim offered just a few years ago. Expect some delay and grabbiness in wet conditions compared to current class leaders such as the Zipp Firestrike.
