The rear FLO 30 isn't the best rear wheel for triathlons or time trial events. Most triathletes or time trialists will be better suited with our Aluminum + Carbon rear FLO 90 or FLO DISC. For a faster and/or lighter option, consider our Carbon Clincher rear FLO 90 or FLO DISC.
The rear FLO 30 makes a great rear wheel for crits and stages races, because it is very aerodynamic and lightweight. For an extra aero advantage, consider our Aluminum + Carbon rear FLO 60 or FLO 90. For a faster and/or lighter option, consider our Carbon Clincher rear FLO 45, FLO 60, or FLO 90.
The rear FLO 30 is an excellent rear 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 rear FLO 60. For a faster and/or lighter option, consider our Carbon Clincher rear FLO 45 or FLO 60.
