WE CURRENTLY HAVE LIMITED STOCK OF VOLANT R/Ts WITH ROL HUBS. Order them today as they will not last long.
VOLANT R/T's with the DT Swiss 350 hubs are out of stock. We anticipate limited quantities in mid summer. The upgrade of the DT Swiss for an extra $150 is an amazing deal.
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.
Recommended rider weight limit is 109kg/240lbs.
For riders above 240 pounds, or loaded touring bikes wanting an even stronger wheel, select the 32/28 hub combination. These wheels will be laced 3 cross (rear) and 2 cross (front) for extra strength.
