This alloy wheelset is a great training option that can also be used for racing. With Sapim Race double butted spokes, this wheelset is an excellent value. 20 radial laced spokes on the front ensure a lightweight option while the rear wheel has 24 spokes double crossed on both sides. This means you can rack up the miles without having to worry about the strength and durability of the wheel.
