Reviews Reynolds Element T Disc Wheel

Reynolds Element T Disc Wheel

The Reynolds disc was consistently the quickest in our test. It’s amazingly stiff and, even when trying to get it to flex and rub on the brakes (with exaggerated rolling), it stays true.

It always feels like it’s slicing the air effectively and there’s wind-tunnel data to back this up. There’s no doubt that its 1,200g weight contributes significantly towards its winning performance.

As the joint lightest wheel on test, and the overall lightest with tyres mounted, it accelerates the fastest. And with 360m of ascent on our 40km rolling test loop, it gains time on its girthier rivals when the road kicks up.

Braking, with Cryo Blue pads, is excellent for a carbon rim. A set of bling lightweight titanium QR skewers seals the go-faster deal.
