The SLR 2 42 Disc wheels are lightweight and durable carbon wheels designed for durability and best performance. Combining a hookless rim design and optimized carbon layup with a modern 19.4mm internal width, the SLR 2 42 offers great value to performance-minded riders who don't want to compromise on price, weight and durability.
High-strength carbon fibers placed in key locations and tested with finite element analysis (FEA) allowed us to develop wheels that are as durable as they are lightweight. With industry-leading stiffness, ride comfort and durability at the lowest possible weight, the new SLR 2 wheels are fast and strong.
Compared to traditional rims with hook designs, a hookless rim makes it easier to increase internal width without increasing weight. GIANT's new hookless rim design also allows a narrower, lighter tire to be used, as it occupies a significantly larger volume on a hookless rim than on a classic hooked rim.
GIANT's Hookless rim design incorporates an innovative manufacturing process that provides a much more robust carbon structure. This process improves the rim's durability and puncture protection without adding weight.
Hookless rims create a rounder tire shape for improved grip and safer handling through better sidewall support.
Without the hook to depress the tire, tires on GIANT's new Hookless rims can offer a distinct aerodynamic advantage. The transition from tire sidewall to rim is much smoother, saving valuable energy and significantly improving aerodynamics.
