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

"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."
