The need for speed.
The Reynolds Cycling ASSAULT Carbon Wheelset is a long-time favorite allroad wheelset, featuring a 41mm depth with their Swirl Lip Generator technology rim profile. While both lightweight and stiff, the Assault is designed to harness every aero advantage available, adding crosswind stability and all-condition handling into the mix as well.
The Assault starts with its Swirl Lip Generator technology, giving the rim improved handling through reduced drag. At 41mm deep, the Assault is capable of confidently navigating the roads (and winds) with ease. Featuring a Cryogenic Glass Transition (CTg) brake surface, these wheels boast a brake track temperature reduction of up to 53% over non-CTg systems.

I upgraded to these wheels from a pair of Mavic Ksyrium Elites, and they made a huge difference. They spin up quickly, roll beautifully, and are both more complaint over rough surfaces and a lot stiffer than my old wheelset-especially noticeable when climbing out of the saddle or accelerating. They look great and feel fast. They seem like amazing value to me for a carbon wheel, and I liked the options Reynolds had for warranty support. I deducted a star, though, because I couldn't get my clinchers on the rim-a sheepish trip to the LBS ensued-and so am not looking forward to my first roadside puncture.
