The Requirement

The customer wanted a tubeless wheelset suitable for Sportive riding. The rider being 72kg and bike adding another 7/8kg wanted a light responsive wheel set. Pacenti had an offer on 20/18 SL23 rim set. With a maximum total weight of 80kg this seemed like a good solution.

The Solution

This wheelset is constructed using the wide 23mm Pacenti SL23 rim giving the ability to utilise 25 or 28mm tyres to give a comfortable ride and a great aero section. They are laced with Sapim's super strong aero CX-ray spokes, radial front and 2X on the back. Hopes Mono hubs were used as they were available with the low spoke count. This wheel set is fine for a light rider but would not be suitable for a heavier rider. The budget for the wheel set sub £400. 

The SL23 rim has now been superseded by the slightly wider Forza rim and the Hope Mono hubs replaced by RS4 .
