The wheels on your bike are not to be overlooked in terms of performance and importance. In addition to a solid frame, road bike wheels are often what makes or breaks a good bike; without the right wheels, it's not the complete package. So what makes a good wheel? Read on to find out everything you need to know about road bike wheels.
Although modern road bike wheels are getting more and more hybrid and generally better at performing multiple functions, there are still speciality wheels that work better at one job than others. If you're a hill climber, then you'll want nothing more but to shed as much excess weight as possible, so therefore a light wheel is the best you can buy. However if it's wind resistance that you want to keep to a minimum then you'll need aerodynamics over light weight. Aerodynamics are important for speeding through the flats and straight, rolling terrains.
Here at ProBikeKit USA you'll find all types of road bike wheels, including lightweight and aerodynamic variants, you can even check the weight on the product pages.
