Reynolds Cycling started in the U.S. in the early 1990’s and revolutionized the world with their high-end Ouzo Carbon Fork. They brought the first carbon clincher wheelset to market. The designs, molds, production techniques, and processes that they developed have created an industry.
The Game Has Changed
The ASSAULT has long been one of the best selling wheels in the Reynolds line, and it just keeps getting better. It now sports a modern tubeless-ready rim channel and 25mm width to provide lower rolling resistance and a smoother ride. It’s both lighter and stiffer than its predecessors and also offers the added benefit of a 41mm depth with our Enhanced SLG technology to give you every aero advantage.
This is a demo wheelsets that has been used a couple of times. 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.
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.
