The VOLANT wheelset is regarded as one of the best wheels in its class. From its wide-stance 23mm rim to its 3-D forged ROL hubset and DT SWISS Competition spokes, there isn't a set of road bike wheelset packing this much technology and ride quality for $500.
The Volant is a modern classic: hardworking, lively and reliable. It's a wheelset perfect for putting in long training rides on questionable roads and still quick enough for a spirited group lunch ride or a weekend race. The Volant was our first wheel model and this year we upgraded it with a wider rim for better handling, DT's double-butted stainless steel Competition spokes and our own carefully designed hubs.
The Volant is a popular upgrade wheel — at well under 1,700 grams, it's likely significantly svelter than the wheelset that came on your bike, while offering reliable U.S. wheel building and a wide profile rim for better handling.
The Volant features our smart new hubs, designed in-house to minimize spoke tension differential on the rear wheel. That means you get a more evenly tensioned wheel for reliability. Combine that with the industry's most respected lightweight spokes and you'll be spinning trouble free for a long time.
Taking our award winning Volant and adding four spokes to the front and rear wheels, the R/T wheelset provides the added strength and durability for the larger, more aggressive rider to tackle any terrain.
The Volant's big brother, the R/T is for aggressive riders and those who prefer a stiff yet compliant ride from their wheels. The Volant R/T is a performance wheel for pounding out training miles, slamming industrial park criterium corners or finessing bumpy cyclocross courses. This is also an idea wheel for heavier road bike riders.
Compared to the Volant, we bumped up the spoke count by four on each wheel — a small price to pay for increased stiffness and durability, and the set still comes in just a hair over 1,700 grams.
The Volant R/T wheelset shares its sibling's wide rim, improving tire performance for secure handling and all-day comfort. We hand-build the R/T in the U.S. with our own hubs and double-butted stainless steel DT Competition spokes, an industry standard for lightweight spokes for decades.

The Race SL wheelset is a leader in wheel performance and value among today's road bike wheels. With its wide, aero rim and SAPIM CX-Ray spokes, the Race SL wheelset packs more performance and ride quality than many bike wheelsets twice its price.
Our best-selling alloy clincher wheelset is the Race SL and a favorite with racers and enthusiasts looking for a wheelset with precise handling, ride quality and speed. It's the perfect wheelset for road racing, criteriums and triathlon. It's already one of the best-reviewed bike wheels on the market and for 2014 we made it even better.
We've improved the Race SL wheelset with a new rim profile that is wider and stiffer. At 23mm wide, our new rim design improves tire performance by shortening the tire's sidewalls and producing a wider contact patch. The 30mm rim profile provides confidence-inspiring turning as well as the stiffness and aerodynamics that seasoned riders demand.
We lace our innovative rim to our own ROL hubs, designed with years of wheel building experience. The hubs minimize the spoke tension differential on the rear wheel, producing a more evenly tensioned wheel for maximum durability. To complete the package we spec'd the sought after Sapim CX-Ray spokes and lightweight alloy DT SWISS ProLock nipples.
At 1,555 grams, the Race SL wheelset provides a lively ride you'll appreciate when you accelerate out of crit corners, or head out for the county line sprint.
Recommend rider weight limit is 95kg/210lbs.

With the same world-class ride and build spec of the Race SL including a wide, aero rim and CX-Ray spokes, the added spokes of the SLR make it a wheelset very much up to the challenges of abusive terrain as well as gravel roads.
The Race SLR wheelset is the big brother to the Race SL alloy clincher wheelset, with the same proprietary hub and wide, aero rim design but with four more Sapim CX Ray spokes per wheel for more aggressive or larger riders or more abusive terrain.
The Race SLR wheelset features the same rim as the Race SL, with its tire-boosting 23mm width and 30mm height, these road bike wheels provide great aerodynamics and stiffness.

The D’Huez wheelset combines decades of wheelbuilding experience to bring you one of the lightest, stiffest and sure-footed low-profile alloy clincher wheelsets on the market.
The D'Huez is a result of our best thinking: at the wheel-building bench, the computer design screen and on long late winter rides. From the hub internals out to the rim's farthest point, we put everything we had into this wheel, among our most popular designs.
The D'Huez is named for the legendary Alpine climb that's featured in so many Tour de France battles. Our lively 1,430 gram wheelset lives up to the history and will climb alongside wheels at twice the price.
The D'Huez feature our proprietary new rims and our new lightweight, spoke-friendly hubs. Our wheel builders connect these innovative parts with nothing less than Sapim CX-Ray spokes, widely considered the lightest, most aerodynamic spokes in cycling.
The wider rim improves tire performance by reducing sidewall flex and widening the contact patch. On these road bike wheels, you'll be more secure in the turns, no matter the speed or the road surface. And if you opt for tubeless tires, with our recommended rim strip and valve, you'll enjoy even more comfort and traction with lower tire pressures, while virtually eliminating flats.

The added strength and durability of the D’Huez 24/28 wheelset make it a natural choice for those who demand the lightweight and wide footprint created by the D’Huez’s wider, race proven rim.
The big brother to the D'Huez, we added four more spokes, front and rear, for increased durability and stiffness.
For more aggressive or heavier bike riders and unforgiving roads, the D'Huez 24/28 is a lightweight wheel with all the advantages of our groundbreaking D'Huez rim: wider for improved tire performance and aerodynamics and tubeless-tire compatibility.
Like its sibling, the D'Huez 24/28 features industry standard Sapim CX-Ray spokes and our own spoke-friendly hubs for thousands of trouble-free miles.
