Reynolds wheels get new rim sizes and new models for 2017

Reynolds has increased the rim width of its Aero carbon clincher wheelsets for 2017 and added new rim depth options and a newly redesigned hub.

The new Aero range’s internal rim width increases to 19mm from its previous 17mm, with the external width now 29mm max. This is reached at a point inboard of the tyre beads, with the rim flaring out from the tyre to present a more aero profile. Reynolds says the new rim width allows you to run tyres from 25mm up to 30mm with the same aero benefits.

All the wheels are tubeless ready and come ready-taped. Reynolds says that its Dispersive Effect Termination, or DET, technology is used on all its Aero series wheels and helps smooth turbulent airflow. The new Aero rims also get smaller spokeholes than before, although they still have internal nipples, making truing more tricky. The rim braked versions are laced 18 front, 24 rear.
