Brake Wear Indicator
BWI stands for Brake Wear Indicator. It is a 10mm wide red line that Reynolds embeds into the brake track.
The indicator, centered over the valve hole on both sides of the rim, becomes visible when excessive wear has occurred to indicate that the wheel needs replacing.
CTg stands for Cryogenic Glass Transition, a patented braking system developed by Reynolds.
The two components are Reynolds' proprietary Cryo-Blue Power polymer brake pads and hybrid carbon-fiber laminate (CTg brake track). With CTg, braking temperatures are 100*F (38*C) cooler than with other technologies
Reynolds introduces its Enhanced SLG (Swirl Lip Generator) rim; a lip that is 8x larger than standard SLG.
CFD analysis demonstrates a 35% aerodynamic performance improvement for the Assault SLG and Strike SLG over the previous Assault and Strike models. The performance improvement is a result of rim-shape optimization which includes Enhanced SLG.
About the Reynolds brand
In the world of cycling, Reynolds stands as one of a handful of iconic brands. The legendary connection between Reynolds and cycling began in 1897 in Birmingham, England with the introduction of the company’s first lugged, steel tube sets. Reynolds has distinguished itself as a brand at the cutting edge of cycling technology ever since. From the prestigious 531/753/853 badges on lugged steel frames, to the revolutionary RZR line of Ultralight wheels, Reynolds’ historic contribution to precision, craftsmanship, and innovation in cycling takes a back seat to no one. Reynolds Cycling in Salt Lake City is a branch in the Reynolds family tree that has developed into one of the world’s pre-eminent carbon wheel manufacturers, and carries on the tradition of excellence in the global cycling industry. Reynolds has supplied carbon tubing for some of the finest bicycle brands; their components, forks and wheels can be found under many professional riders. In 2008 Reynolds joined forces with legendary carbon fibre engineer Paul Lew. Paul’s ideas and innovation have helped transform the way Reynolds manufactures carbon wheels, from layup to moulds. Today, the sole focus of Reynolds Cycling is to produce the best carbon wheels available. When you ride a Reynolds wheel you’re experiencing the heritage and pedigree so many champions have trusted to carry them to victory. For more than a century, the name Reynolds has stood for quality, design and performance in bicycle components because we’re renowned for creating products that deliver a cycling experience unlike any other.
