Is this wheel for you?

Triathlon/Time Trial

The front FLO 30 makes an excellent off season training wheel or a front wheel for triathletes and time trialists who are very sensitive to crosswinds. It's also a great option for those training and racing on a budget. If you are looking for a wheel more suited for racing, and aren't sensitive to crosswinds, our Aluminum + Carbon front FLO 60 or FLO 90 will be better choices. For a faster and/or lighter option, consider our Carbon Clincher front FLO 45, FLO 60, or FLO 90.

Road Racing

The front FLO 30 makes a great front wheel for crits and stages races, specifically if there is a lot of climbing. For an extra aero advantage, consider our Aluminum + Carbon front FLO 60 or FLO 90. For a faster and/or lighter option, consider our Carbon Clincher front FLO 45, FLO 60, or FLO 90.

Recreational

The front FLO 30 is an excellent front wheel for recreational riders. The wide rim allows you to keep your tire pressure lower, improving corning and making your ride more comfortable. If you're looking for an even better aero advantage, consider our Aluminum + Carbon front FLO 60. For a faster and/or lighter option, consider our Carbon Clincher front FLO 45 or FLO 60.
