Reynolds Cycling introduces the improved RZR 46 and RZR 46 Team wheels for 2011. Now available in a tubular versions, the RZR 46 features UD laminate from 57 Msi moduls carbon fiber and 110 Msi boron fiber. It has a 21.25mm rim with rim height of 46.5mm. The RZR 46 uses Reynolds’ patented Swirl Lip Generator that guides the air to get closer to the rim as it travels over its edges. This limits airflow separation from the tire.
The RZR 46 uses N.A.C.A. (National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics) 0033 spokes and a Torque Flange carbon fiber hub. It weighs 910 grams and has a rider weight limit of 180 lbs.
The RZR 46 Team has the same make as with the RZR 46 but with added kevlar on the rim and spokes, making it stiffer and stronger. This is also in compliance with UCI. Ultimately it prohibits the wheel from shattering into pieces if it’s punctured. It weighs 1199 grams and has a higher weight limit of 220 lbs. MSRP is also $6000.
