Meet your best riding companion for drop-bar adventures. Be it a gravel grinder, road ramble, bikepacking trip, or fast daily commute, this new addition to our Allroad family is faster, smoother and 140g lighter than its predecessor, the Allroad Elite. The Allroad SL’s lightweight aluminum rims feature ISM4D technology, which strategically removes material from the rim where it’s not needed but keeps it around the spokes, where tension is applied. Double butted spokes further reduce weight and make the wheel feel more responsive. The spokes have an aero elliptical shape that can save 5 watts of energy while maintaining your speed. Wide rims (22mm internal) are compatible with tubeless tires ranging from 28mm to 64mm for a smooth, efficient ride quality.
The UST system has been improved with a new rim bed shape that makes it easier than ever to install and change tires. Fore technology attaches the spokes to the rim without the need to drill the upper rim bed, so no tape is required. No hassles, no added weight (another 30g saved).
The new Infinity hub platform optimizes spoke lacing with highly controlled tension for maximum power transfer, and the Instant Drive 360 freewheel, coupled with an automatic bearing preload adjustment (QRM Auto), provides fast engagement, stiffness and added durability. The wheels use center lock brake rotors and are available with Shimano or SRAM XD-Road driver bodies and can convert to Campagnolo with an optional driver body. The front hub is a 12mm thru-axle that can convert to 15mm or quick release. The rear is a 12x142 and can also convert to quick release.
