SLR 1 Disc WheelSystem Rated Best On Test By Cycling Weekly
Cycling Weekly put six of the best disc Wheelsets on the market to test recently, including the Mavic Cosmic Pro’s, Zipp 302’s and Roval CL50’s, with the Giant SLR 1 Disc WheelSystem coming out on top and earning a fantastic nine out of ten score.
The SLR 1 Disc wheels offer a huge amount of performance considering the low price, something which reviewer Simon Smythe; “since Giant is able to bring to bear its commanding position as the world’s largest bicycle manufacturer, it’s not surprising that its own-brand wheels are characterised by a high level of technology paired with a competitively low price”.
As part of the test, the wheels were placed into a Pinnacle Dolomite and the performance increase was instantly felt; “With the Giant wheels in, not only was it a little bit lighter but the responsiveness we had been missing was restored – and the SLRs also supplied some much-needed aerodynamics.”
Over the course of the review, there was very little to criticise from the hoops as Smythe noted: “In fact, it was hard to find fault with the Giant SLR 1 Disc Full Carbon 42 wheels.”
Overall, the fantastic review was summed up with; “This is a good a wheelset as you’ll find at this price. Design, build quality, weight and aesthetics are everything you could hope for.”
