Alan’s Silver Diablo SL wheelset

Alan wanted light and affordable, with a tweak of personality. That’s what he got with his made to order “Silver Surfer” Diablo SL wheelset. At a verified 1390g, these are light and strong. . The all silver look provides a touch of retro with its silver SL hubs, silver niobium 27mm rims, silver Sapim Laser spokes and silver alloy and brass nipples.   The front wheel, with its cross-one lacing and minimal 66g front ultralight hub looks fantastic! These replace tired old wheels with dry scratchy bearings and worn out brake surfaces.  Enjoy!
