Reynolds has taken the Aero line and updated their “DET” (Dispersive Effect Termination) rim shape to make it faster, more stable and give it the ability to go tubeless. The hubs have also had a considerable upgrade, now using Industry Nine hubs made specifically for Reynolds in Asheville, North Carolina.
The three wheels in the Aero line are the 46, 65 and 80 (the name refers to their depth) and all feature a rim shape that has been aerodynamically optimized for a 25c tire using a 19mm internal and 28mm external width (the 80 has a 29mm external width), in addition to now being tubeless compatible thanks to an inner rim channel change. Both the 46 and 65 are available in disc brake models that use a Centerlock rotor instead of 6-bolt that Reynolds had used in the past.
Prices decrease from the 2016 models, going down to $2599 for the disc brake models and $2499 for the rim brake versions. Reynolds expects the Aero line to be available right around the beginning of the year.
