2016 Reynolds 46 AERO Clincher Wheelset

Product Description

General Information

Reynolds calls the 46mm depth of their 46 AERO Clincher Wheelset their "signature depth."  That's because it works everywhere. It is equally at home riding from your home, racing criteriums, time trial, road races, even cyclocross.
The 505g rim is shallow enough to be easy to handle in crosswinds, light enough to accelerate on steep hills, deep enough to make a real impact at high speeds, and tough enough to be raced off road. Weight is one thing, but design is another. Reynolds calls this CR6, Carbon Rim 6, referring to six areas where they created unique lay-ups in six areas to better manipulate the material. The lay-up is stronger and more durable with a better brake track that manages to keep rim temperatures up to 100-degress Fahrenheit (38-degrees Celsius) than other offerings. A cooler brake track brakes better, lasts, longer, and is more consistent. They even figured a way to put in a rim wear indicator—if a 10mm wide red line appears on the brake track by the valve hole, it's time to replace the rim.
Safety is important, but you're looking for fast. Not only are the rims embracing wide-body thinking, with a 26.2mm exterior width at the brake track, but the rims have also incorporated two unique Reynolds technologies. One is DET, or Dispersive Effect Termination, a way to smooth turbulent airflow as it's crossing the rims. The second is ISH, or Integrated Step Hook. This where the rim wall moves inward at the perimeter of the brake track to help create more predictable air flow over transition from the tire to the rim and greater lateral stiffness.
The sixteen radially-laced DT Aerolite front spokes are strong enough to keep the rim straight and true, but few enough and aero enough to barely register against the wind. The twenty cross-two laced DT Aerolite rear spokes brace the wheel against torsional loads and prevent wind-up. 
The hubs are Reynolds-designed with DT/Swiss 240 internals for durability. The rear hub comes set up for either Campagnolo 9/10/11 speed or eleven-speed Shimano/SRAM. 
The wheels ship with Reynolds Cryo-Blue Brake Pads (use Reynolds pads or you void the warranty), Reynolds Competitive skewers (steel, 65g per set), rim strips, valve extenders, and wheel bags. They've even embedded an Aero Valve Plug to prevent the valve stems from rattling.
The Reynolds 46 Aero Clincher Wheelset is part of the Reynolds Assurance Program (RAP). It's essentially wheel insurance, where you purchase the plan and your wheels are covered for two years, no questions asked. You take care of the paperwork on the Reynolds Cycling site, and have 30 days from purchase here to obtain the RAP.
The Reynolds 46 is the one-wheel solution to your racing and riding needs.
