2015 Triathlete Buyer’s Guide: Wheels

Profile Design 38 Twenty Four

$1,900, Profile-design.com
The draw: Versatility

For a carbon clincher delivering performance at a tolerable price, Profile Design’s Twenty Four range is a great option. The 38s aren’t as aero as deeper options, but they’re lighter, making them suitable for hilly triathlons, road races or even daily training. Profile’s rim design and carbon lay-up offer reliable braking and predictable handling, even in crosswinds. For an ultra-smooth ride, take advantage of the wide rims and run these wheels with 25mm tires.
