Retrospec Reflective Road Wheelset
Additional safety for night or winter riding
Racing wheelset with high reflection for safe low-light riding
On one level, these are just standard 700C road wheels, in the aerodynamic 40mm depth that’s become popular on high-end road bikes. But what attracted us was something entirely different. The Restrospec logo (and Road across the rim) are in inch-high, tasteful reflective lettering that blends into the rim during the day but stands out bold–and spinning–in dusk and night riding.
It’s a whole new level of wheel safety, without adding a single screw-on reflector or spoke clip.
Includes front and rear wheels, front and rear quick-release skewers, and two extra spokes (but not the 28mm Gatorskin tires shown in one gallery image).
