Demo/Race Wheel Program

Is it the engine or the equipment that is giving your competition an edge? Your chance to experience first hand how a race wheel set can give you the advantage.

The Lab understand purchasing a wheel set can be a bit intimidating with many factors coming into play: price, aerodynamics, construction, race terrain, etc. The Lab want’s you to be 100% confident in the wheels we sell, if you decide to purchase.


After renting and you decide to purchase any wheel set from the Lab, part of your demo fee will go towards the purchase. That is, within 60 days of your demo period.

What’s included:

Wheel set (Shimano hub only), skewers, tires/tubes, and a padded double wheel bag. Carbon wheels supplied with special carbon pads w/holder. The Lab does not supply rear cassettes. You supply and install yourself** or the Lab can install with local pick. This will insure proper chain length and alignment.
