Tubeless for the long haul.

You want your wheels to be lightweight and durable, but don't always want to spring the wallet wide open for carbon tubulars. Sure, they're stiff and fast, but they aren’t practical for daily training, unless you have a personal sag wagon. Reynold's premier alloy wheels, the Stratus Pro, feature a lightweight, narrow profile laced to Reynold's race hub. They are durable enough for daily training and lightweight and responsive enough for racing.

The 28mm-deep aluminum rim makes these wheels just shallow enough to minimize rotational weight, while efficiently cutting through the air. And unlike a full carbon wheel, which may feel a bit stiff for everyday training, aluminum provides a damping interface between the rough road and your body. Nonetheless, the Stratus Pro spin up to speed fast and hold speed on flats and descents. This, of course, is aided by lacing the rims to Reynold's newest racing hub. Speaking of descents, the 21mm rim width of the Stratus Pro creates a sturdy platform for cornering through winding and windy canyons. There are 20 radially-laced front spokes and 24 rear spokes laced in a two-cross drive/radial non-drive pattern. In a design change in 2013, the spoke nipples have been kept on the exterior of the rim, finally easing your service and maintenance.

One of the more noticeable characteristics of the Stratus Pro are that they are tubeless ready. For those of you who have heard the term, but do not quite understand the technology, let's run through it. Basically, it is a smaller version of a car tire. Tubeless ready rims have a shaped edge that works in conjunction with a tubeless tire to create an airtight seal. That, and sealed spoke holes mean that the tire may be filled directly with air and an inner tube is not needed. A sealant which is placed inside the tire seals small punctures so that you don't need to replace tubes. Additionally, if you chose to use non-tubeless tires, the Stratus rims also work perfectly well with your traditional tubed set-up.

The Reynolds Stratus Pro Tubeless Road Wheelset is available in the color Black in a 700c clincher. Reynolds is offering this wheelset with either a Shimano- or Campagnolo-compatible freehub body, and yes, the Shimano-version is compatible with 9-, 10-, and 11-speed group sets.

Really nice set of wheels

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've put around 200 miles on this wheelset so far, they really are a great "all-arounder". Light enough to help with climbing, deep enough to confer some aero advantage, wide enough to improve ride quality and handling. I have been crushing my PRs on all of my common riding routes. Ride quality has significantly improved as has road feel. Even at only 28mm spec. depth, I can really feel an improvement when slicing through a headwind, and they handle cross-winds much better than my 23mm stock wheelset.

I'm riding them with Continental Grand Prix 25mm ... really nice combo.

I found these wheels match the manufacturer's weight spec when "naked". They're just north of 1500 grams with the rim strips installed.

I measured the width and depth with my own calipers and found the depth at 30mm and external width at 22mm (just a little deeper/wider than the claimed specs).

The freehub is definitely more buzzy than my stock wheelset (which was practically silent), but this is a common property on higher-end wheels. Probably attributable to stronger springs on the ratchet pawls for more positive engagement.

Great for price. Light.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

No complaints. Solid build, light weight. Sale price hard to beat for sub-1500g wheels. Straight out of box, perfect. Two pairs actually - recommended to friend and installed for him as well. He's loves them.

Light, aero, affordable!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These came in the mail perfectly true for me. I could not believe the price these were going at keeping in mind the sub 1500g weight as well as a fairly aero profile versus other wheels at this weight. Popped them on my cannondale and noticed an immediate difference from the stock mavic kysriums and felt much more lively.

Nice Wheelset, Heavier than Advertised

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Bought these several weeks ago and have a few hundred miles on them. Before installation of cassette, tubes and tires, I weighed them out of the box. Front was 738 grams, including skewer, rear was 913, including skewer = 1651 grams total. Without skewers, they weighed 1534 grams. Not sure what Reynolds measures, but the weight was not exactly as advertised...as for performance, I can't say that I notice a meaningful difference over my fulcrum 5.5's that came on my 2014 Cervelo R3. That said, at 50% off, I won't complain. The fit and finish and slightly wider internal rim width (and tubeless option) is nice and for me, worth the price at 50% off. I'm still saving for a set of Carbon wheels when the time comes but don't regret my decision on these in the meantime.

Quoted weight is probably without rimstrips installed.

In the reviews somebody mentioned that these wheels are loud. Can you provide any thoughts on that?

I just posted a review above and while I didn't comment on noise, I can tell you that it's not an issue for me at all...nothing annoying or that stands out in anyway in my opinion. They probably do sound different than my stock wheels, with a slightly more mechanical sound to the free wheel, but not in a negative way or anything I've ever thought about while riding.

A very solid wheel!

    So far after only a couple hundred miles I have no complaints. They are light. I'm using them with Continental 4 season tires, but plan to go tubeless.

    Best wheelset for your money.

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    With a lightweight construction, simple design and aluminum durability, it´s hard to find a better option for a pair of wheels. At 1450 g, they´re very light, even against carbon wheels.

    My Specialized Tarmac lost 0.6 kg (1.2 lb). So far, so good. Thanks to Mike Nelson for helped me decide.

    So far I'm Loving it!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Just finished my first 100+ mile ride on these wheels and I'm in love! I've been shopping for some wheels for a while, but since my main pair of Easton's was giving me problems (wobbly brake track) I needed wheels that I could reliably take up (and down) Powder Mtn (HC, 13-18% grades) and not melt them on the descents. I decided to go for the Reynolds Stratus Pros at nearly half the price of the Dura Ace CL-24s and I'm so glad I did. They feel great, spin smooth, ride well, they don't spin too loudly (totally disagree with other reviewer), and they ride like a dream. I borrowed some Enve 3/4s with Gold Chris King hubs for about 3 months last year and they were really pretty, and felt great, but I'm not sure I can tell a huge difference between those and my new Reynolds... just sayin' they're nice.

    I've never done tubeless before, on Mtn or Road, but I decided to go all-in and picked up a pair of Schwalbe Pro One tubeless tires and filled with 30ml of Stans in each tire. Installation was a breeze and on our ride I was the only one without a pinch flat during our 10mile foray through the "warzone" of a road north of Croydon, UT.
    It's nice to know I can still carry a tube with me "just in case" but theoretically I shouldn't need it except for extreme cases. Seriously the best of both worlds.

    Update: Just finished the Ghost Town Omnium and I'm still loving these wheels. I was able to run a lower pressure than normal on the crit for a nice "supple" ride, much like my tubulars with great traction in the corners. On the hilly/windy road race it was great having a lightweight set of wheels with the narrow profile. They performed beautifully and feel very responsive. A STEAL at $450 on Competitive!

    Initial Impressions

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I've put about 50 miles on these so far so I can't offer much beyond my first impressions. That being said, I am really liking these wheels. They seem to be extremely well built, and rolled straight as an arrow out of the box. The 21mm width (paired with 25mm conti 4k's) brought an immediate smile to my face on my first high speed corner and has me wondering why I've resisted the change to 25mm tires for so long; super comfortable ride as well. I'm 6'6" and weigh in at 215lbs and there was no noticeable flex (beyond what I consider normal for a cyclist of my stature) while hammering out of the saddle. I definitely think these will hold up come cross season as well. One thing to note, the rear hub is LOUD. If this bothers you, either replace the hub or HTFU and stop coasting so much! But the buzz is noticeable for sure. At this price point, you will be hard pressed to find a lighter and more satisfying wheel set. Highly recommended.

    From my experience, freehub noise is on-par with other high-quality wheels. There are certainly louder ones out there.

    It's definitely there, but to a certain extent, "buzzy freehubs" are usually synonymous with higher quality.

    Any reviewers out there for this wheelset?

    I'm leaning towards them especially in light of all of the issues that Easton has had with the EA90SL/SLX's.



    Thanks.
