RL700 DISC (v2)

£450.00

We have improved the new Kinesis Racelight 700 Disc wheel by refining the rim profile, sourcing lightweight hubs and lacing them together with Sapim CX Aero Spokes.

The Racelight 700 Disc is our premium aluminium race or sportive ready wheelset. It features an all new custom lightweight tubeless ready rim made from high strength 6061 aluminium with 24mm external width and a 21mm internal width. The rim is also pinned and welded making it incredibly strong, and combining this with the wider profile, it gives you the option fit a larger tyre and load your bike up for an epic bike-packing expedition. We recommend tyre widths between 23c and 40c.

For maximum weight saving we have built the Racelight 700 Disc around CNC machined, straight pull, lightweight hubs. Straight pull spokes offer a significant weight saving over J-Bend and build into an incredibly strong wheel. The Racelight Disc 700 hubs are easily adaptable to Sram XD driver or Campagnolo freehub bodies. Smoothness is everything in a hub and that is why we chose Revo Cream bearings, which as the name suggests, are one of the smoothest and best rolling bearings on the market. We supply the wheels with tubeless tape and valves fitted, and both Thru Axle end caps and QR end caps, so that your wheels are ready to fit, straight from the box.

Our hubs and rims are laced together with Sapim CX Aero spokes. Sapim spokes are favoured by wheel builders all over the world, as every spoke is meticulously monitored and checked throughout the entire production process, and this attention to detail ensures all our wheels are evenly tensioned and will stay truer for longer. For the Racelight 700 Disc we have chosen the Sapim CX Aero for their minimal wind resistance, high strength and low weight.

“They don't really do a lot wrong, these Racelight wheels. For £400 you'd expect a well-built and reasonably light wheelset and that's what you get, with a forward-looking build that uses tubeless rims and Centerlock disc mounts, and covers all the current axle standards. A good value choice for your road disc or gravel build.”

Verdict: Solid performing road disc wheels that are well built and a good weight for all-round use.
