Syncros, the component brand linked to Scott, has just released two eye-catching new wheelsets aimed squarely at the road and gravel markets. These high-end hoops feature a similar monocoque carbon construction to Syncros' Silverton SL mountain bike wheels - wheels ridden to victory by Tom Pidcock in the Tokyo Olympics.

The headline stats are the feathery weights, with the 40mm Capital SL wheelset coming in at a claimed 1,170 grams and the 60mm deep Capital SL Aero tipping the scales at 1,290 grams.
