Scott-SRAM Racing have announced that they will be switching to Syncros wheels for the 2021 season.
The racing team featuring Nino Schurter, Kate Courtney and Lars Forster are swapping from DT Swiss wheels to Syncros' intriguing one-piece carbon Silverton SL wheels. Syncros has been partnered with Scott-SRAM since 2017, supplying the team with cockpits, saddles and seatposts. For the 2021 season, they are expanding their support with their carbon wheels.
Syncros' Silverton SL wheels hit the scales at a claimed 1290 grams with options of both 26 or 30mm internal widths. The one-piece construction includes spokes running from rim to rim. Syncros claim that each carbon spoke is 35% stronger with a weight of 3.5g grams each compared to steel spokes at 5.7 grams. Each rim is a single hollow piece with only the valve hole needing to be drilling, resulting in a claimed increase in impact protection and a reduction in pinch flats.
