Road.cc published a new roundup of the top tubeless road wheelsets on the market today, and they included the recently updated Giant SLR 0 42 WheelSystem. Praising the lightweight road wheels, which feature 42mm deep composite rims and precision hubs with Swiss internals, Road.cc editors gave them a high 4-star ranking (out of 5).
“The rims are wide, feel fast and handle well,” wrote Road.CC technical editor Mat Brett. “They performed excellently during testing in my mix of hilly races, flat criteriums and general riding with good braking and stability in crosswinds.”
Brett wrote that he appreciated the overall light weight of the wheels and also the fact that they have an efficient aero shape without any compromises in stability and handling.
“We didn’t find these wheels hard to handle in windy conditions,” Brett wrote. “In fact, they felt very stable. The wheels also feel zippy when climbing thanks to the respectable weight: 629g front and 791g rear, giving a total of 1420g. Weight isn’t everything, though. We were also impressed with the lateral stiffness.”
