Reynolds wheels have always managed to strike a balance between performance and price. Because of this, the brand's Attack, Assault and Strike wheel ranges have been supremely popular over the years. Those three product lines have been brought under the AR (All Road) moniker.

Boasting a 58/62 rim depth configuration, the ARX wheels pictured here are the premium option in this range and can be used on both Tarmac and light gravel. With an attractive price tag, do these wheels measure up against the best road bike wheels?
