Zipp 202 clincher wheelset at Evans Cycles were £1851, now £1450
The 202s have become Zipps go to climbing wheelset because of their lightweight (a claimed 1450g for the pair). These get all the benefits of Zipp’s Firecrest technology, including an advanced carbon layup and very good rim-braking.
Zipp 302 carbon clincher wheels were £1369, now £1099
Read more: Zipp 302 carbon clincher review
The Zipp 302 carbon clincher wheels represent Zipp’s attempt at a lower price point set of carbon hoops, and they’re very good. When we tested them it became clear that Zipp had managed to filter down all its top tier tech into a much lower price point, and these wheels were devastatingly fast and stiff.
Mavic Ksyrium Pro Carbon SL Disc wheelset was £1800 now £1165
Read more: Mavic Ksyrium Pro review
At a claimed 1320g for the pair, this is a seriously lightweight set of climbing hoops that are stiff thanks to their 3K carbon build. Their 25mm depth is also good for when the road points upwards as it keeps the weight down. Plus, it improves their handling on descents as they’re more resilient to cross winds.
These are tubular wheels which makes them a little bit more niche, but they’re a great bargain if you’re still using that standard.
Reynolds Attack Disc wheelset was £1499.99 now £750
New hubs improve rolling resistance and longevity, while making the Reynolds Attack wheels stiffer too. Rim depth is 29mm and claimed weight is 1480g a set.
Campagnolo Shamal Ultra 2-way fit wheelset was £1061.99 now £849
Complete with ceramic bearings, the Campagnolo Shamal Ultra wheels have all Campag’s best tech in a robust alloy wheelset. The 2-way fit system means that you can run them tubeless or tubed, without needing a rim tape. They’re available with a Campagnolo or a Shimano freehub.
Vision Team 30 Comp wheelset with Hutchinson Fusion 5 tyres was £250 now £174.95
The Team 30 comes with a CNC machined braking surface, aero spokes and other high end features from Vision’s flashier wheels, but at a bargain price. Plus you get a set of Hutchinson Fusion 5 tyres thrown into the deal, so you’re ready to roll.
Mavic Cosmic Elite UST wheelset was £419, now £319
For the price point, these Mavic Cosmic Elite wheels are brilliant, worthy of far more money than £319. They have a 40mm deep aero rim profile. They’re disc brake wheels and are tubeless ready, too.
That’s all the wheel deals for now!
