Giant SLR 1 Carbon 42mm Road Bike Front Wheel

3.8 out of 5 Customer Rating

The Details

Made with ultralight composite rims, this pro-level mid-profile aero disc WheelSystem is a great all-around weapon for sprinting to the podium or a solo attack on a ride in the mountains. The SLR 1 42 is a fine balance between efficiency, control and durability in a stiff, lightweight and value-oriented package.

At 42mm, they offer excellent flat out speed, while retaining superb control in crosswinds, making them the ideal all-round carbon wheels. At 1466g for the pair, they are exceptionally lightweight and the unique DBL (dynamically balanced lacing) system ensures they remain stiff and true throughout the entire pedal stroke.

SUPERIOR EFFICIENCY - market-leading transmission stiffness, best-in-class weight and optimized aerodynamics.

PINPOINT CONTROL - market-leading lateral stiffness and superior braking performance in all conditions.

ENGINEERED DURABILITY - handcrafted with proprietary materials, resins and processes.

Our Verdict

With a finely balanced rim depth, these SLR 1 carbon wheels are an excellent upgrade for any calliper brake road bike.
