Parcours Strade wheelset review

Light-footed wheels optimised for wider rubber

Parcours Strade wheelset
Cycling Weekly Verdict

There really is a plethora of wheel brands out there, and it can be hard for consumers to differentiate the good from the bad. But take it from us: Parcours spent a solid 12 months partnering with engineering experts to develop the Strade, and it's not bluffing with the science. The result is a capable wheel, which is as strong and sturdy as it is light footed, with attention to detail evident in the build spec. All for under £1000. The weight is just a fraction higher than what's offered by the competition, but it's not really enough for a rider to notice.

An aerodynamic wheel is only as fast as its rider's ability to control it allows: a wind cheatingly deep rim will be no good if the result is an increase in distance covered due to wavering on the straights or squaring off the corners.
