FLO 60/90 Carbon Clincher/Tubeless-Ready


$1,149, Flocycling.com

The draw: Lots of science for very little loot

Despite boasting the lowest price tag of any wheels tested, the FLO 60/90 still performs admirably against wheels that cost three times as much. The 90mm rear rim provides a very stiff ride, but the depth and rim shape are wind tunnel and CFD tested to create a slippery profile. Though the wheelset costs about the same as other brands’ front or rear wheel alone, the FLO 60/90 is tubeless-ready and comes with many of the same extras. For anyone looking to upgrade to a race wheel and still have enough money for food, the FLO 60/90 combination is a great place to start.
