Reynolds Attack Clincher Wheelset

pinit fg en rect gray 20   Reynolds Attack Clincher Wheelset

reynolds attack clincher wheelset   Reynolds Attack Clincher WheelsetIt was in March that Reynolds Attack first took its ride and since then, many remodeling has been done to create something even more better out of this wheel set. The new renovations on this include the deep rim’s combination of low weight and better air penetration which makes a good choice for both disciplines and much more impressive ride adding comfort to the rider during road racing.

Although the front wheel was knocked off a bit from the pedal which resulted to a slight wobble, it still works fine. The carbon-fiber is good since it has no yield point and doesn’t get bent out of shape, unlike the wheelsets that use aluminum or other ductile metals that can be stressed beyond its capacity and can assume a new shape.

But if there is damage on this case, the carbon rim is just waiting to spring back to its original…

DT Swiss launched the new Tricon wheelset last week in Girona, Spain. It was previously introduced in the Annual Eurobike Show in Germany last year.

Tricon or Triple Connection was a project DT Swiss started nearly ten years ago. The company began to manufacture and develop the wheels only a few years ago despite the project’s available prototypes and hub designs.

The wheels feature many interesting designs. The spoke lacing or “crow foot” as coined by DT Swiss, is a popular lacing pattern used in UK in the 70s. Tricon has one radial spoke and two crossed spokes banded together on the hub flange. They all function as one to provide maximum stiffness and torque transmission. It also has 18 spokes front and 24 rear, giving the wheels a unique design.

A three-piece shell separates the spoke tension from the bearings. This will also lower rolling resistance. The two crossed spokes are…
