Recent advancements have made carbon fibre nearly equal in strength to aluminium, but these innovative technologies typically come at a high price. For when durability, strength and budget are the top three things on your wheel search list nothing beats aluminium as the material of choice. With this in mind we set out to create a disc-only alloy wheelset that features many of the desired qualities found in a carbon wheel such as low weight, stiffness and good looks but with the durability to train and race both on and off road. In the end our SLX 24 wheelset came out as a lightweight durable wheelset that's ready for whatever you throw at it.

The wide profile of the SLX 24 is what really sets them apart from others in in the same weight category. Most wheels in this category feature a much narrower internal width, a flaw that impairs a proper tire/rim match. But the 20mm internal rim width of the SLX 24s have them pair nicely with road and 'cross tires alike. This match allows for lower rolling resistance due to the ability to run lower pressures and wider tires. Lower pressures with wider tires and rims is somewhat of a new concept but can greatly improve ride quality and performance. Wide rims allow for more air volume in the tire and with more air less pressure is needed to have the same resistance to pinch flats, providing you with a more supple ride without the risk of flats both on and off-road. On the performance side of things less pressure equates to less rolling resistance via the tire soaking up road imperfections rather than bouncing over them. When too much pressure is in a tire, without realizing it your bike will ever-so-slightly spring over road imperfections, wasting precious watts - but lower pressures soak up these bumps and keep use your power strictly for forward movement. Less pressure also greatly improves grip inspiring confidence when the road gets twisty.

Even with a budget-friendly price in mind we made sure not to compromise quality with the build components of our SLX 24. The use of quality alloy sets the tone for the rest of the build quality and with this we start with the 24-millimeter-deep rims that offer both low weight and great durability and hand-lace them to the same aero (AF) hubs that you find on our top-end carbon models via 20/24 DT Swiss Competition spokes - resulting in a respectable 1495-gram wheelset. Building wheels by hand is a practice that's becoming scarce but being fully invested in making the best wheels means that we know hand-built wheels provide a level of quality unmatched by machines. Machines miss little discrepancies that humans catch and these are the flaws that make the difference between a good and a prestigious wheelset.

If you're looking for a no-nonsense wheelset that you can race and train on with equal aplomb without worrying about reliability look no further than our SLX 24 wheelset.

Electric Bikes

Due to the extra weight of electric bikes, we are unable to ship these fully assembled. Instead, your bike will be built, configured and checked by our mechanics before being packed back into it's original box.

This method requires removing the front wheel, handlebars, pedals and seatpost, which will need to be reinstalled upon arrival.

To help with this we have a video guiding you through every step! However, if there's anything you'd like any help or advice, please contact us by calling 0141 332 2705 or by e-mailing sales@dalescycles.com
