VER­DICT

Cycling Plus - - GEAR GUIDE -

It’s been great to find that some of the best wheels we’ve rid­den in a long time in terms of re­li­able, re­al­world per­for­mance are some of the cheap­est in this test, and a frac­tion of the cost of fancy car­bon wheels.

DT Swiss gives you proven bear­ing re­li­a­bil­ity laced into smooth-rolling, tube­less-ready rims for wheels that’ll flat­ter any all-round rouleur for £335. Our two top wheels are both un­der £400 too. Hunt’s Sprint Aero Wides are oc­ca­sion­ally un­for­giv­ing but de­liver a pol­ished, light­weight, speed sus­tain­ing tube­less ride with a full set of spares in­cluded and tyres fit­ted, if you want. If you want a light and re­spon­sive ride at the ex­pense of laser ac­cu­rate track­ing and max­i­mum power trans­fer the new Lark 20 wheelset from Just Rid­ing Along im­pressed. Add hand-built qual­ity, durable bear­ings and cus­tom op­tions to tweak per­for­mance, and it’s enough to put th­ese York­shire hand­builds ahead of big global brands.
