2017 Triathlete Buyer’s Guide: Wheels

The draw: A low-priced, balanced ride

Don’t let the low price fool you; this is one of the most complete wheelsets we reviewed. The box comes with everything you need except tires and tubes: rim tape, valve extensions, brake pads, skewers and even precut spare spokes (your mechanic will thank you!). The deep rims are engineered to cut the wind at real-life angles, and on the road you’ll get balanced handling and lateral stiffness without a brutally bumpy ride. Paired with the included brake pads, these clinchers also provide one of the most effective braking performances of the wheels we tested.
