Say Hello To The FLO 30 LIMITED

The FLO 30, an aluminum wheel with an aero profile and wide internal rim width, was designed to be an all around, go-to wheel. It’s durable and holds up to almost any ride. I think we can agree that 2020 has produced a lot more riding than racing. So, based on popular demand, the FLO 30 is making a comeback in a unique way. Say hello to the FLO 30 LIMITED and FLO 30 LIMITED Disc.

History Of The FLO 30

The FLO 30 was originally developed in 2013 and featured an advanced aerodynamic profile with a wide internal rim width, both of which are still relevant today. The design concept behind the wheel was to create a Swiss Army Knife type cycling wheel. This wheel did it all, great for racing, riding, climbing, bomb-proof, all seasons, gravel, you name it.

The rim was 6066 aluminum to keep the price low and to provide a strong durable rim. During its time in our line up, the FLO 30 was one of our most popular wheels. It provided a serious upgrade from a standard OE wheel being built with our FLO Vortex hubs and Sapim CX-Ray spokes. The wheel was discontinued in 2017, but today we are bringing it back.

These wheel sets are LIMITED editions. The FLO 30 LIMITED and FLO 30 LIMITED Disc will not be part of regular inventory.

Total Power

Total power is calculated by adding the total watts consumed from aerodynamics and rolling resistance, with the goal to have your total power number as low as possible.

The graphs on the left show how many watts the FLO 30 LIMITED can save you over a standard bike wheel, Mavic Open Pro.

Continental GP 5000 tires in 25mm were used for optimization and testing.

Paco,

I am sorry but we do not have a 28 hole option on the way. The new rims have been modified for us to use one build for heavier riders.

Ride safe,

Jon

I asked about the Flo30 a couple of months ago and you said “stay tuned”, that got me excited. Any chance I can get them on 24/28 spoke count.

Thanks, @PacoExpress
