Like the SL38, the SL50 is a true all rounder, perfectly suited for all riders and all road surface conditions. Technically, the differences between the two are subtle, the SL50's are more aerodynamic, stronger and transfer power more efficiently, the SL38's, more compliant on coarse road surfaces and have a lighter more nimble feel.
Truthfully, most clients choose the SL50's because they look great and suit modern frame designs. They don't realise just how amazing they are to ride until that first unforgettable ride.
All of our carbon rims have been designed and tuned using high tech computer programs to create what we term "Aerodynamically Accurate" rim profiles. The deeper you go, the more aerodynamically efficient the wheels will be. How deep you go will ultimately come down to two things, looks and speed; achieving the aesthetic balance you want to create for your bike and how fast you want, or would like, to go.
In general, we recommend SL28, SL38 and SL50 for everyday riding and suggest that SL60, SL85 and SL DISC wheels are better suited for competitive riding. It's a good rule of thumb, but in the end, the choice is yours to make.
If you want to improve the way your bike rides and handles, upgrade your wheels, it will transform your ride and give it new lease on life. Most of my clients say it is like riding an new bike. Faster, improved handling and more fun to ride. But don't believe me, read the reviews, they'll tell you all you need to know.
