FLO 30 LIMITED Wheels Are Here - Get Them While They Last

You may be new to cycling or dusting off an old bike that’s been in storage for a number of years to help stay in shape during the COVID-19 pandemic. Now that you’ve been riding for a while you may be looking to make a few improvements to you bike that won’t cost you an arm and a leg but will leave you with an upgrade that is worth your money. You may have heard wheels may be one of the best upgrades for your money. If this sounds like you, read on.

Dusting Off An Old Favorite

Back in 2013, we released a cycling wheel called the FLO 30 with a few thoughts in mind.

  1. Let’s design and build a wheel that uses the best components we can find.
  2. Let’s make the rim out of aluminum to reduce the cost as much as possible and to make it really durable.
  3. Let’s make it as aerodynamic as possible.
  4. Let’s sell it directly to the consumer for great price. 

In the several years we made this wheel it was a crowd favorite because it allowed people to upgrade to a great wheel for a low price. In 2017 we decided to discontinue the wheel since customers wanted carbon wheels.

Earlier this year, we released a pre-order for a FLO 30 LIMITED cycling wheel. We opened the old FLO 30 wheel mold due to the number of people looking for a lower priced wheel. This would allow people to upgrade to a great wheel that didn’t come with the price tag of a carbon wheel.

It’s now December and the FLO 30 LIMITED has arrived at our fulfillment center. While we sold out of the first limited edition run, we made another order and we still have a few sets left.

Benefits Of The FLO 30 LIMITED Wheels

You may be wondering why a wheel upgrade is a good idea. Here are the main reasons why upgrading your wheels is a good idea.

  1. Ride Quality - You can feel the benefits of a well built wheel. The FLO 30 LIMITED is faster aerodynamically due to the rim profile, is more compliant due to the components used, and your ride smoother because of the build. Additionally, power transfer is more efficient because of the components and wheel build, which makes you you faster for the same amount of work. 
  2. Less Maintenance - One of the biggest complaints about the OEM wheels that ship on bikes is broken spokes and repeated trips to the shop to have the wheels trued. The FLO 30 LIMITED makes this a thing of the past. The Sapim CX-Ray spokes are arguably the best spokes in the industry and breaking one normally only occurs when a spoke is damaged. Plus, the wheel build makes truing the wheel something you don’t have to worry about more than once every 10,000 miles or more. 
  3. Jack Of All Trades - The FLO 30 LIMITED wheel was designed to be a jack of all trades. Whether you're on the pavement or wanting to spend some time riding gravel, the FLO 30 LIMITED is a great wheel. The FLO 30 LIMITED can accept a tire as small as 23mm and as large as your frame will accept. There is no issue adding a gravel tire to the wheel for great gravel rides. 
  4. Exploring Racing - If the time on your bike has had you thinking about entering a race, the FLO 30 LIMITED is a great way to upgrade to a fast wheel without breaking the bank.

While They Last

The FLO 30 LIMITED was ordered in limited quantities. Due to the initial success of the pre-order we ended up adding more sets to the order. We have no plans of making this a regular product in our line up or upgrading the wheel, so if you are interested in a great all around wheel at an even better price, we recommend buying a set of the FLO 30 LIMITED wheels now. Once they are gone, they are gone. 

As always, if you have question about the FLO 30 LIMITED wheel please feel free to reach to and we can walk you through specifics on the wheel and the wheel selection process. If you think you may want to get a carbon wheel, then check out our new FLO All Sport line. The All Sport line is more expensive but it marks the pinnacle of our product line.
