Cycling Weekly Verdict

For sure, part of the ride feel comes from tubeless tyres but the feeling of grip makes them a cut above the rest, and because of that the cornering is excellent. Among conventional-looking alloy rims, the 340 is hard to beat.

What a mouthful of a name! The 340 Comp wheels are the budget option of the range and use the venerable 340 rim; the Team (£580) and the Pro (£850) sit above and feature upgrades to reduce the mass and justify the cost increase.

The rim, as the name suggests, is ready for tubeless tyres, but it can also run tubes, if you desire. At 22.6mm wide and 21mm deep, it's certainly a shallow section; we expected it to be a useful all-rounder.
