CLOSEOUT! 2014 Reynolds Assault SLG Tubular Rim

CLOSEOUT! 2014 Reynolds Assault SLG Tubular Rim

The most versatile rim in the Reynolds line-up is now available as a tubular. Like the Assault SLG carbon clincher, the Assault SLG tubular rim is 25mm wide and 41mm deep for incredibly confident handling in a wide range of conditions. Reynolds added the Enhanced Swirl Lip Generator (SLG) to the Assault SLG tubular to produce a world-class carbon rim.

The wider, lower profile Assault SLG rim is lighter, stiffer and more aerodynamic than its 46mm predecessor. The 25mm track width significantly reduces overall aerodynamic drag by matching the width of the tire, which minimizes turbulence. The wider rim also reduces tire deformation, resulting in lower rolling resistance, enhanced maneuverability and improved ride quality. The depth was decreased to 41mm to maximize the aerodynamic advantages of the wider rim shape, with the benefit of improved handling, particularly in crosswinds.

The Assault SLG rim is upgraded with Reynolds' Enhanced Swirl Lip Generator (SLG), previously only available on Reynolds high-end wheels. Reynolds' proprietary SLG technology is a ridge on the sidewall near the spoke interface that smooths turbulence and reduces pressure drag. Reynolds aerodynamic testing at the A2 Wind Tunnel facility demonstrated a time savings of 12.5 seconds over 40 km.

A noteworthy design change is the move to external nipples which improves serviceability with no loss in aerodynamic performance.

Reynolds’ patented CTg (cryo + glass transition point) braking technology actively removes heat from the braking surface, which allows their rims to run up to 100 degrees cooler under heavy braking. The results are controlled, predictable descents, increased durability, and heat carrying capacity.
