We are currently out of stock of the Volant wheel sets - Please take a look at the Volant R/T wheels or the Upgrade of the Race SL.
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.
