The Draw: Customizable Budget Buy
The Flo Carbon Clincher disc is a hotly anticipated new product for 2018. Similar to its predecessor, this is a spoked wheel with an aerodynamic fairing, however the rim is made from carbon fiber—instead of aluminum—which shaves about 40 grams. The new disc has all the modern features, like tubeless compatibility and a wide, 18mm inner rim width. Since this is a spoked wheel, it can go out of true, but the wheel is fairly easy to service. Braking in wet and dry conditions was acceptable, but the wheel did seem a bit harder to accelerate than others. Once at speed, however, this wheel held momentum like a disc wheel should and roars to let others know you are coming. Eleven available logo colors make it easy to personalize.
