A few weeks ago we wrote an article that highlighted the FLO 64 AS and discussed its versatility as a cycling wheel. That article was prompted by one of the most frequent questions we get asked: “What wheels are best for me?”
This time, we are going to highlight the FLO 77 AS. As I have stated before, all of the wheels designed at FLO are like children to me. New to our lineup is the FLO 77 AS. Before 2020, we had a FLO 90 which had a rim depth of 94.7mm. While being a very fast wheel, it was also a bit of a wild child when handling the front wheel in crosswinds. The deeper a front wheel, the more difficult it is to handle in strong or gusty winds. When developing the FLO 77 AS, we considered the handling depth, but speed was something on which we were unwilling to compromise. Read below to learn more about how we reduced the depth of the wheel by close to 20mm, made it faster, and why it may just be the best wheel for you.
