British firm, Parcours has spent the better part of 12 months working closely with the sports engineering department at Nottingham Trent University to develop its latest wheelset - the Strade. 

While the priority was to create an affordable carbon wheelset, the design properties naturally hinge around performance, a notion highlighted by the inclusion of specifically developed front/rear rim profiles optimised for 28mm tyres. The wheels are manufactured by a dedicated production line in Shenzhen, China and represent the company's first fully in-house-developed wheelset.
