An amazing 2016 triathlon race year, thanks to ENCORE race wheels! I recorded PR bike splits, on both flat and hilly courses; placing 1st in my age group in a TN 70.3, and 5th age grouper at Ironman AZ.
As a lighter weight athlete, I was concerned about the wheels being a slight bit heavier than my other race wheels. I’m pleased to report that ENCORE wheels increase stability and performance in windy conditions, on curvy roads, and fast downhills.
The ENCORE cassette performed exceptionally well, making shifting smooth and efficient on the hills. I stand and shift a lot, so the cassette was definitely put to the test.
Being stronger and more durable than regular race wheels, I love the fact that I can train and race on ENCORE race wheels; no need to switch them out and they can be shipped with Tri Bike Transport, unlike the disc race wheel.
For those “Matchy” triathletes, I love the fact that ENCORE has a custom decal program. My wheels match my bike. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this option.
