Road Cycling UK tested the Giant SL1 Climbing WheelSystem recently, praising the value and all-around performance of the lightweight alloy wheels and recommending them as a great option for an upgrade over any stock road wheels.
For its test, RCUK fitted the wheels with 25c Giant Gavia AC 0 tubeless tires. The combination of the tubeless ready wheels and tires delivered a “responsive and lively” ride quality.
“Taking into account the improved ‘feel’ of the road you get from a tube-free setup, the wheels feel nimble, responsive, positive to ride and easy to handle,” wrote tester Ashley Quinlan. “There’s a real liveliness to these hoops when heading skywards, set against plenty of stiffness when putting the power down. I couldn’t get any brake rub to materialize no matter how hard I tried out of the saddle, while they also roll efficiently when settling down into a steady tempo.”
