Weekend's Racing

Just coming off a big weekend of racing here. We had a number of riders testing out our wheels at Battenkill on Saturday. For those of you who are unfamiliar, it's an epic race over a punishing course that includes many less than perfect road (and not quite road) surfaces.

It's the perfect race to rent some wheels through Echappe rather than abuse your own and that's exactly what a few racers did with our Rev-50 and Rev-50x.

You can read the full account here.

I also want to say a big thank you to everyone who participated in the Lower Providence Crit on Sunday. Congrats to Margaret Smigiel who won the amateur woman's race and took home a set of the Rev-22's for her efforts.

PowerTap Pricing

All PowerTap wheels come with the Electropack (head unit, etc). If, for example, you already have an ANT+ Sport compatible device and don't need the Elecktropack, contact us for alternate pricing.

We build the rear wheel with SAPIM CX-Ray spokes if using the SLC+, SL+ or PRO+ hub. We build the rear wheel with SAPIM Race (or DT Competition) spokes if using the ELITE+ hub.

Check out the SARIS site for details on the hubs or contact us if you want to discuss available options.

By the Power of Grayskull...

Here's a quiz:

Which of the following pictures is most appealing to you after a nice hard ride or race:

A)


















B)










C)














D)

















If you chose D, there is probably something wrong with you. But that's okay because Revolution Wheelworks is now offering PowerTap builds!

We will gladly build the SLC+, SL+ , PRO+ and ELITE+ wireless models on any of our alloy rims and the any model except the ELITE+ on our carbon rims. All PowerTap wheels will be built to order so it may take up to two weeks to ship depending on our stock and how busy I am.

We will have details and pricing on the site soon but if you have any questions in the meantime, please contact us.

Oh yeah, here's a cool He-Man clip:

Reminder: Rentals Available

Just wanted to put a quick reminder out there that rentals of the REV-50 and REV-50x are available through Echappe Equipment. So even though we're out of stock in the REV-50 through mid May, you can still rent a set in the meantime. The $50 off coupon after you rent still applies while we have the wheels marked down for pre-order so in theory, you can order a set of the REV-50s for as little as $750 and still be able to race them (through Echappe) in an early season race. Check out their site for more details.
