The Scribe Cycling competition is now closed and we have a winner!
Congratulations to Louise Walton!
Scribe Wheels will be in contact with you shortly to discuss which set of wheels you would like.
Many thanks to all those who entered and better luck next time.
Rolling along nicely from last week’s competition, we have an amazing prize from Scribe Cycling. Launching earlier this year, Scribe Cycling have shot straight into limelight with their new wheel lineup. We’ve had the chance to review three sets of their wheels so far, and we've been impressed with all of them. Now they’re offering you the chance to win a set of their snazzy carbon wheels.... any set you like!
Scribe Cycling might be a new name to most of you, but the company has a long history in creating products for other cycling brands. They aim to bring riders the best pound-for-pound wheels possible with zero compromise. With the full Scribe range to pick from, we've listed a few of examples of what you might choose, and will leave you to check out the rest at www.scribecycling.co.uk.
Aero 50 Disc
We reviewed the Aero 50 Discs back in July and we gave them 4.5 stars. Tester Stu was impressed with the weight straight from the off, saying: “A wheel weight of 1,449g is impressive full stop, but when you consider that's including a wide and deep carbon fibre rim, plus the extra spokes needed for a disc build, it is truly awesome and something you really notice when fitting them to your bike." You can read the full review here.
Alternatively, if the state of our roads are getting you down and you want rims that are easily able to cope with them and some off-road terrain, check out the Scribe 1485g Gravel option. The Wide 21mm internal profile gives you the option to fit wide tyres for increased stability when cornering on and off-road, and increased speed due to improved rolling resistance - especially when you set them up tubeless.
If you’re running rim brakes, Scribe have you covered as well; and once again our tester Stu reviewed the Scribe 38s last month, awarding 4.5 stars out of 5. The 38s are designed to be incredibly lightweight and seriously responsive. They could be a good option for those looking aero benefits over rolling terrain without having to worry about the front getting caught in crosswinds. With a 19mm internal and 26mm external rim profile, you’ll be able to run wide tyres too. You can read the full review here.
For all of their carbon and alloy performance line wheels, Scribe uses a Patented 54-tooth ratchet drive hub system which is similar in design to DT Swiss’ new EXP hub. Scribe says: “the 54-tooth ratchet system offers high-speed engagement (6.6º) and as there is only one moving part, the hubs are exceptionally durable and remarkably easy to service”.
If you want to find out more about Scribe, check out the great technology section on their website which highlights their zero compromise approach to the development and testing of their wheels.
