Is it time for a wheel upgrade?
Time savings: 2-4 minutes
Since 2008 when Zipp introduced their race-winning 303’s, the bicycle market has been flooded with carbon wheel choices. There is little doubt that deep-dish carbon wheels are the best bang for the buck when trying to improve your time in the RBC Grand Fondo Whistler.
In choosing the right wheelset, you should consider the depth of the rim, the width of the rim (inner and outer), and the weight of the wheelset. There are fantastic options from brands like Zipp, DT Swiss, and Mavic, though our personal favourite for the best all-around performance is the Enve 5.6 wheelset. Read more about aero wheelsets here.
