Description

Ditch your heavy aluminum wheels for the light, stiff, and aero Reynolds Assault Clincher Wheelset. A deep profile rim slices through the air, and dampens road vibrations, while fast spinning cartridge bearings and a quick engaging freehub drives you to the front of the pack. Reynolds knows all that speed’s dangerous, so they added the CTg braking system for smooth, powerful and consistent stops.

I've only ridden about 100 miles on my 2011 Assaults

So far so good. Ride and responsiveness is smooth and crisp. It's taken everything I've thrown at it and seems to beg for more. Going from the stock Fulcrum aluminum wheelset the these is night and day in terms of the ride. Breaking power isn't as good however. Even with the Reynolds blue brake pads, I can't stop as quickly. There is noticeably more noise when breaking as well now. Just something I'll get use to and learn to live with. Thus only the 4 stars.

I think it's overall performance was worth the upgrade for me. The road feels much smoother with the Assaults. And on top of that, handling is as good or better than all other wheels I've tried. I can honestly say that I'm able to ride faster on these. It's given me at least 1-3 mph boost across the board.

The look is phenomenal. Initially, I didn't like the decals on the 2011s. But once I slapped on the tires, my bike went from beautiful to absolutely gorgeous even with the decals! Check out the pic...

I would definitely recommend these wheels to anyone looking for an upgrade.

No warranty support! :o(

Bought Assault wheelset less than a year ago from Realcyclist. Have broken numerous spokes. Reynolds warranted the first few within six months after purchase. After less than one year, all rear spokes have worn flat where they cross and make contact creating very annoying popping noise with very little wheel flex. Took to LBS, who is a Reynolds AD, and after less than a year, Reynolds rep denied warranty coverage.
Way to stand behind your products Reynolds!

Great performing wheels worthy of 5 stars. Giving 3 stars due to crappy mfr support.

How many miles did you get, after the warranty work was done, and before the spokes started making that creaking noise?

I am considering the 66 or the Assault. I really like the looks of the 66 with the DT Swiss hub.

On top of that, I am factoring in paying a little extra for the 'Reynolds Assurance Program," normally I think insurance is the biggest scam. But if it prevents issues like you have are having, it might be worth the $200 cost

Would be interested in knowing why the wheels were not warrantied if still within the warranty period. Is Realcyclist not an authorized dealer? I was interested in getting a pair of these as my everyday training wheels.

Try taking a short piece of plumbers teflon tape, folding it a couple times, and put it between the spoke crossing, then use scissors to trim away the excess. Should stay in place, and eliminate the noises due to flexing. If that doesn't work, experiment with other thin sheeting materials and a tiny dab of superglue.
