Product Description


The Reynolds Assault Disc Clincher Wheelset brings top shelf carbon wheel performance into a value package. The rim shape has been proven, and the build it flawless.

The rim shape is blunt on the spoke side. Total depth is 41mm. The rim branches out into Reynolds’ Swirl Lip Generator, a means for smoothing out turbulent air. This new iteration of it is bigger and results in much better aerodynamic performance. 35% better according to Computational Fluid Dynamics virtual tests. From there, the shape remains slightly bulbous, moving outwards to a 25mm total width just before the rim bed. This results in a 17mm width at the rim edge. Layup  has been tweaked to be disc-specific, meaning there’s a bit less material at the brake track, owing to the fact that calipers won’t be squeezing the rim there. Wider rims mean greater air volume, and that leads to lower rolling resistance.

Minimum tire width is 23mm, but it can max out as wide as you can find. The aero shape will be most efficient with tires in the 23-25mm range, but if you’re going cyclocrossing, gravel grinding, or adventuring, it will take any width. The wheel is light enough to be a good climber and excellent crit rider, and leans more toward climbing and acceleration, but the depth is enough to give you an aero edge on the flats.

Hubs are Reynolds-designed. Both wheels feature 24 aero spokes arrayed in a two-cross pattern. The spokes are Sapim CX-Sprint straight-pulls with internal nipples. The hubs come ready for thru-axles: 100x12 front and 142x12 rear. If you need quick releases, 100x15 front, or 135x12 rear, those end caps are all sold separately. The rear cassette choices are: Campagnolo eleven-speed, Shimano/SRAM eleven-speed, and SRAM XD.

Weight for the wheel set is 1590g.

The wheelset is set up for tubeless and comes with tubeless valves. You can also run tubed tires if you so desire-the tubeless tape is thin and light and makes it easy to mount tires. The default rotor option is Centerlock, but it also comes with a six-bolt adapter.

The Reynolds Assault DB Clincher Wheelset is eligible for additional coverage with the Reynolds Assurance Program. RAP is essentially supplemental insurance for your wheels. You can enroll for one, two, or three years, getting a virtual guarantee that no matter how you break the wheel, they’ll replace it. You need to visit the Reynolds Cycling website to enroll.
