After 5 years and 6 variations of the S2.0s, we decided to design a new rim that is wider and yet managed to reduce the wheelset weight even further! Wider, stronger and lighter at an actual weight of 1295g/pair, it is one of the lightest full aluminium clincher wheelset in the world straight out of the box.
It’s been 2 years since we updated our wheels and after feedback and extensive riding/ testing. We wanted to improve the ride quality of the S2.0s as we felt that they would be greater wheels if they were more responsive, and rode even smoother than before. Of course, losing some weight along the way wouldn’t hurt. So for 2013-2015, we took the plunge, started working with a new alloy rim manufacturer and put money into an entirely new alloy rim extrusion to come out with a new S2.0. The rims are proprietary and are around 400-410g. We adopted a 23mm wide rim width in order to assure compatibility with all brakes and frames. The wider rim allows for a better and smoother transition with clincher tyres. They also allow for a smoother ride as they can be run at a lower pressure. They are built strong enough for everyday training and light enough for climb specific races. Spinup is quick because of the lightweight rims which reduce rotational weight. With a wide rim section, lower spoke count and bladed spokes, the wheels now hold higher speeds better compared to the older versions, have more traction through corners and are stiffer.
It features our own SOUL PRODIGY V3 hubs which weight 280g/pair, and use only 1 spoke length for the entire wheelbuild. The SOUL hubs feature a smoother freewheel design with 6 pawls, 2 sets of 3 simultaneously engaging pawls and 2 sealed bearings front and 4 sealed bearings rear. We increased the number of pawls to increase engagement speed. Fully artisan crafted and handbuilt with equal spoke tensions. Spoke threads are prepared before assembly to prevent spoke binding and seizing. All spokes are stress relieved a few times during build process.
