Like they did last summer with the whole Sport line for road, now Scope all-road gets its own lower-cost S-series wheel, just limited to the one versatile 42mm mid-depth wheelset. The new S4.A slots in 400€ cheaper the already affordable carbon Race All-Road wheel family, simply with the previous generation U-shaped aero rim profile, not the newer AEA-refined VU-shape, and classic pawl-engagement hubs.
