The Boyd Rouleur Alloy Disc wheelset is the brand’s latest affordable wheel upgrade option.

In addition to its 28 and 44 mm carbon rim and disc Prologue wheelsets that launched in 2020, Boyd has expanded with two new alloy models it hopes will bridge the gap between price tag and performance.

The new models include the road Rouler Alloy Disc, and the Stumphouse Alloy MTB wheelsets. Compared to the MSRP $1,050 of the carbon Prologue Series wheels, the alloy options go for MSRP $425 to $450, making them a truly affordable option for riders who want to replace stock wheels or find a solid replacement after a crash.
