Introducing the most versatile wheel in the Reynolds Performance line-up: The ASSAULT SLG. The ASSAULT, one of our most popular wheels ever, has been significantly upgraded with Reynolds’ Enhanced Swirl Lip Generator. It also boasts a new 41 mm depth and 25 mm width. The ASSAULT SLG is lighter and stiffer than its predecessors and ideal for a wide range of terrain and demands.
Available in Clincher or Tubular.
CTg stands for Cryogenic Glass Transition, a patented braking system developed by Reynolds.
The two components are Reynolds' proprietary Cryo-Blue Power polymer brake pads and hybrid carbon-fiber laminate (CTg brake track). With CTg, braking temperatures are 100*F (38*C) cooler than with other technologies.
BWI stands for Brake Wear Indicator. It is a 10mm wide red line that Reynolds embeds into the brake track.
The indicator, centered over the valve hole on both sides of the rim, becomes visible when excessive wear has occurred to indicate that the wheel needs replacing.
Reynolds introduces its Enhanced SLG (Swirl Lip Generator) rim; a lip that is 8x larger than standard SLG.
CFD analysis demonstrates a 35% aerodynamic performance improvement for the Assault SLG and Strike SLG over the previous Assault and Strike models. The performance improvement is a result of rim-shape optimization which includes Enhanced SLG.
The PR3 (Performance Rim 3) Rim Design identifies three unique areas of the rim and assigns a specific carbon fiber and epoxy formula to each. PR3 is used on the Attack, Assault SLG, Assault SLG Disc Brake, Strik SLG and Assault SLG/Strike SLG Mixed Set wheels.

Reynolds Cycling was the first company to put a carbon clincher into large-scale production. That gave them an advantage in terms of market penetration but it also meant that early adopters satisfied with their wheels didn’t necessarily progress to their newer technology. I’m beginning with this shot of the inside of the rim to show just how clean their molding is. I’ve seen a lot of carbon wheels and that level of precision at the inner wall and bead hook isn’t common. http://redkiteprayer.com/index.php?s=reynoldsRead Full Article
