|Reynolds Assault wheelset|
The Reynolds Assault is an aggressive, all-carbon clincher wheelset with a 46mm deep-V rim, designed to improve the speed of your everyday cycling. It is engineered to withstand severe lateral force, meaning the Assault digs harder, drives faster and hangs tougher than any similar wheelset. Stiff and responsive in any situation, the Assault features a carbon braking surface that ensures braking is smooth and sure.
And, while the Assault takes any punishment you can deliver, our proprietary Vibration Management System (VMS) helps keep the ride smooth and steady. Why put up with alloy when you can enjoy Reynolds carbon performance for about the same price?
This wheelset represents the first family of world-class, yet affordable, carbon wheel performance. The 46mm Assault not only has a leg up on the best alloy wheels, but it can out-sprint, out-corner and generally out-perform any deep profile carbon wheel for a fraction of the price. For 2011 Reynolds improved the layup composition and added our proprietary new CTg braking system to measurably improve stopping performance. All this for about what you’d pay for the finest alloy wheels.

What size tire do you recommend for Reynolds wheels?
With a Reynolds tubular wheel we suggest nothing less than a 22 mm for the smallest tire. This is because the rim profile for the tire seat is designed around a 22 mm tubular. A smaller tubular may adhere to the rim improperly.
