These wheels have been updated since 2016, they use Hydra hubs where previously they used Torch hubs. Rim wise, as Graham noted in his review, they may have landed on the right carbon rim formula of compliance and durability ages ago. I’d certainly agree with his assessment. Hayes Bicycle Group - who own Reynolds wheels - have an excellent track record of not pursuing change for change sake that I think is quite refreshing. Here I’m thinking of the Dorado, Dominion brakes, the TPC damper on my R7, and Reynolds wheels. One interesting note from my past experiences- and I beat the sh*t out of the Black Label rims I tested - is that Reynolds was the only carbon rim company I could find who weren’t at all concerned about me running Schwalbe ProCore inserts with their rims.
