Reynolds Forty Six C Clincher Wheelset - $2,400.00

What do you get when you pair the versatility of 46mm deep wheels with ease-of-use of clinchers' Take your thought, cut around 100 grams off of it, spec it with carbon, and you have the Reynolds Forty Six C Clincher Wheelset. Now, with the Forty Six's purpose-driven engineering, you can say goodbye to sacrificing weight and stopping power for the convenience of clinchers. In fact, in terms of weight, the Forty Six tips the scales around a respectable 1440 grams. And when compared to comparable clincher rim depths, the Forty Six comes in lower than the Zipp Firecrest 303 and just edges above the Enve SES 3.4s. How was it done' With Reynolds' CR6 Hybrid Carbon, of course. This is the same carbon fiber found in the Aero line of wheels. It's used in both lines because it allows a high level of torsional and lateral rigidity without the detriment of stacking grams. And for the Aero line, its light weight and high tensile strength keeps the weight of a 26.2mm wide rim down. So, when used on the Forty Six's maximum width of 20.8mm and a rim depth of 46mm, rotational weight becomes almost negligible. So, it can be asserted that while the Forty Six's aerodynamics play a vital role in its design, it hasn't undergone the same extensive DET tunnel-testing as the Aero series. However, like the RZR 46, the Forty Six has received Reynolds' Swirl Lip Generator (SLG) technology. It's easy to miss, but the leading edge of the rim features a 0.9mm lip in order to widen it near the spoke face. Accordingly, this minimizes pressure drag by reducing side forces on the rim, leaving room for responsiveness and weight to be the paramount characteristics of the Forty Six. And along these lines, you'll find that the wheels roll up to speed quickly, and demand less user-force to keep them there. Additionally, its exceptional stiffness-to-weight ratio guarantees a nimble reaction to your force when you jump to pin down a climbing break. - $2,400.00
