Launch a solo attack. Climb to a new KOM. Tackle your longest ride ever with confidence and control. When it comes to road-riding performance, wheels impact your ride more than any other component on your bike. That's why Giant develops and builds its own on-road WheelSystems. We've spent years working with pro road racers to target key performance factors and achieve breakthrough results.  Giant rims are produced in-house using Giant’s unrivaled engineering and manufacturing expertise in carbon and high-strength alloys for improved strength and stiffness with lower overall weight.


  • Ultra-Light full composite 700C rims
  • Tubeless compatible using supplied rim strips and valves
  • 23mm wide rim for better tire performance
  • 55mm rim height
  • Dynamic Balanced Lacing provides significantly higher transmission stiffness vs. traditionally laced wheels
  • DT Aerolite/Aero Comp bladed stainless steel spokes
  • Alloy locking nipples
  • Giant alloy hub shell with Star Ratched driver
  • 1535g per pair

    Dynamic Balanced Lacing:
    Engineered with more leverage on the “pulling” spoke and less on the “pushing” spoke, DBL technology maximizes the performance benefits of the rear wheel while it is in a dynamic state, delivering market-leading transmission stiffness for the highest level of efficiency.

    Optimized Anchor Point:
    Improved flange placement on the front hub and an optimized drive side flange on the rear hub increase spoke bracing angles, which boosts overall lateral stiffness. The result is stronger, stiffer wheels that track more accurately for better cornering performance and pinpoint control.

    Precision Hub Internals:
    Proprietary hub shell designs with proven engineered hub internals create dependable performance in demanding conditions. All hub parts are readily available and serviceable by your local retailer.

    Tubeless Compatible:
    Tubeless Compatible rims provide the ability to run lower air pressure, allowing the tire to conform better to the road surface or terrain for improved traction, lower rolling resistance and a reduced risk of pinch flats.

    Optimized Aerodynamics:
    Designed and engineered using CFD analysis to provide a high level of aerodynamicadvantage at various yaw angles.

    Superior Efficiency:
    Giant WheelSystems with DBL technology deliver the highest level of efficiency, as measured by its market-leading transmission stiffness-to-weight ratio and aerodynamic performance.

    With its unrivaled capabilities in composite engineering and manufacturing, Giant is able to produce WheelSystems that are consistently best-in-class when it comes to weight.

    Here are the results:

    Transmission Stiffness:
    The 2017 Giant SLR 0 WheelSystem was tested against top competitor wheels to determine overall transmission stiffness. A dynamic pedaling load equivalent to a 175mm crank and a 39/25T gear combo producing 65kg of pedaling force was applied, and deformation was measured to determine transmission stiffness. The weight of each rear wheel was then factored into the stiffness results to produce the overall stiffness-to-weight ratio. The Giant SLR 0 with DBL technology tested highest in transmission stiffness against leading competitors.

    Here are the results:

    Lateral Stiffness:
    The combination of DBL and Optimized Anchor Point technologies helps boost the lateral stiffness of a wheel. This allows a bike to track more accurately, especially while cornering or descending. In a test to determine overall lateral deformation under a side load, the SLR 0 WheelSystem beats the competition, showing the lowest deformation. That means these wheels have the highest lateral stiffness front to rear, which gives a rider more control.

    Here are the results:

    Giant’s proprietary High Glass Transition Temperature (Tg) resin system and automated continuous composite layup process help ensure consistency of the materials used in the rim. These processes, combined with Giant’s unrivaled composite engineering and manufacturing expertise, help produce rims that tolerate higher heat under braking, which enhances the rim’s overall durability. To analyze the effects of heat build-up, the SLR 0 WheelSystem was tested against other leading wheelsets in a brake force and thermal resistance test. The equivalent braking energy of 75Wh, sustained over two 15-minute cycles using an average speed of 12.5 kph was applied. Tire pressure was set to 100 psi. The desired result was no deformation of the rim after the first cycle, and to finish the second cycle without rim failure.

    Here are the results:
