The deepest rim available in the Performance line, the 62 mm STRIKE SLG heeds the call for time trial, triathlon, and criterium. This wheel, a mainstay of International TT and tri competition for years, is significantly improved in 2014 with enhanced SLG, putting competitors at an immediate disadvantage and saving valuable watts.
Available in Clincher only.
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.
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 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 Reynolds Strike SLG was featured in Triathlete's 2015 Buyers Guide. The wheels were featured mainly because of the top level aerodynamics offered at a mid-level price.
"The modern wide bulge section rims of the Strike SLG offer aerodynamics that are competitive with wheels that cost significantly more as well as crosswind stability that exceeds many. The carbon braking surface, in combination with Renyolds Cryto pads, provides strong and well-modulated dry braking, better than almost any carbon rim..."
“Rounding out the revised performance line is the Strike SLG. The Strike SLG is intended for time trials, triathlons, and flat road races.”Read Full Article
"The Strike has an Enhanced Swirl Lip Generator...The small vaccuum that'screated by the lip minimizes the large vaccuum that is created from the air not attaching. So it helps the air reattach and reduce the drag."Read Full Article
"This wheel is ideal for triathlon, time trial—any event where an aerodynamic advantage may become the most important feature."Read Full Article
"The new Strike SLG...is already approved for mass start UCI races. Starting in 2014, UCI events will limit wheel depth to 65mm for mass start events, so this one clears that hurdle."Read Full Article
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
