Rider Type

Is this wheel for you?

Triathlon/Time Trial

In almost any race situation aside from climbing the Alpe d'Huez, a disc will always be the fastest rear wheel. The general rule of thumb is always use a disc when racing in a triathlon or time trial. Choose the FLO DISC if getting from point A to point B as quickly as possible is your goal.

Road Racing

Unless you are racing the time trial discipline, disc wheels are typically not allowed in road racing events. Our other Carbon Clincher wheels, the FLO 45, FLO 60, or FLO 90, would be better choices for road racing. Our Aluminum + Carbon FLO 60 or FLO 90, or our Aluminum FLO 30, are also excellent choices.

Recreational

We do not recommend the FLO DISC for recreational riders. Our Carbon Clincher FLO 45 or FLO 60, would be better choices for recreational riding. For a more affordable option, our Aluminum + Carbon FLO 60, or Aluminum FLO 30, are also excellent choices.

What's best for me? Carbon Clincher OR Aluminum + Carbon?

Data Driven Design

Rim Shapes Optimized Using Real World Data

Using 110,000 data points collected while riding on the road, we developed a custom optimization algorithm that intelligenty tested 500 prototypes to find the fastest rims shapes we've ever created. For more information on this process, visit our Aero page.

What People are Saying

"What a story they are telling with these wheels. The design process was, as far as I can see, the most comprehensive and advanced this industry has ever seen, bar none."

"When you look closely at the data and run these new wheels through the models, they are aerodynamically as sound than anything created by the big players in the industry. What sets FLO apart is that their wheels come in at half the price without sacrificing performance."

"When a company tells you their new product is 2-3% faster than their original, you take notice. When FLO tells us that their new FLO 60 Carbon Clincher is 22.20% faster than their previous model, you shut up and ask whom to make the check out to."
