Product Description

You are off to the Alps for the cycling holiday of the year and you need new wheels. For a pair of light, comfortable, laterally stiff, responsive summer wheels Strada’s Signature build the Alpine ATTACK! is hard to beat. Darren and Ben believe this is the stiffest light alloy wheelset available on the market today. Hand built to here in Sussex with CNC’d hubs from French manufacturer Aivee, the SR5 road hub is 10/11 speed ready, light, has clever flange placement for excellent even (drive to non drive side) spoke tension and good engagement. Matched with top quality 22.5 mm wide Ryde Pulse rims from Holland, Sapim CX Ray bladed spokes from Belgium and alloy nipples from Italy make this package stiff, comfy and light. Alloy brake mean descending even in pouring rain or intense heat is no longer a concern.

Note – we recommend the use of Swissstop BXP (blue) brake pads to maximise performance and the life span of the rim.
