Picco SLR PRO BERD Wheelset

Front Axel Size
Rear Axel Size
Preferred Hub Colour

No Compromises. The fastest wheelset we've ever built. 

The Picco SLR BERD is the culmination of thousands of hours of research and development. We've taken our original Picco 46 Rim (which was raced by pro team Saint Piran at the highest levels) and made it even lighter with no negative impact on stiffness through a mixture of new layups and an improved resin formula. 

Laced with BERD PolyLight spokes. These are the lightest spokes on the market, manufactured from ultra high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) that has 12 times the strength-to-weight ratio of steel - and just so happens to float on water. 

To round off the ultimate in performance, hubs are the incredible DT Swiss 180. 

Whats In the box?

Your wheelset comes built ready to ride.

If you have not ordered tyres then you may need to have the tension and disc of the wheels checked by a professional before installation.

Utilising next-generation technology to make the fastest all-round rims with the world's lightest and strongest spokes.


Our rigorous testing from back roads to World Tour we know the SLR Pro is significantly smoother due to the lack of resonance in the poly light spokes. Less fatigue on the rider, and less bounce on the road = faster.


We have spent years developing our rims and build process. By pairing this with the Berd Poly Lite spokes and DT Swiss 180 hubs we have put the best of everything together to create the ultimate wheelset.

Introducing the Pacenti Picco SLR Pro

We’ve built a lot of wheels. And we mean a lot.We’ve provided entire pro teams with seasons of hoops, and we’ve created thousands of consumer wheels for all manner of riders. From round the world pootlers to hill climbers and just about everyone in between.

How do we keep moving forward? We keep pushing the boundaries of what people though was possible. Introducing the Pacenti Picco SLR Pro, in collaboration with Berd Spokes. Built with one, uncompromising goal. Be faster. 

Our new Picco 46 SLR rim saves a few grams compared to it's predecessor

Our new Picco 46 SLR rim saves a few grams compared to it's predecessor - with some of our tests even showing a small improved stiffness due to the new carbon layup. The Picco 46 rim has long been heralded as the king of the all round. The 46mm deep carbon rims are not 46mm deep by accident. Through our extensive R&D 46mm was the depth at which we can extract maximum aero gains without excessive weight or inferior handling in inclement wind.

Berd spokes are made from an advanced polymer called ultra high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) that has 12 times the strength-to-weight ratio of steel and floats on water. Berd spokes have an improved fatigue life compared to steel and are impervious to the elements. For us this means that we can build a lighter, stronger wheelset.

incredible 1430g per wheelset

Finally we’ve invested significantly in tooling to make sure we can marry our pro level rims, to the incredible Berd spokes, and complete the wheels with race ready hubs. In this instance, DT Swiss 240. Nothing but the best.

Aside from the lab and digital testing. Something has happened to all the riders who have been behind the scenes putting the Picco 46 SLR Berds through their paces. They’ve all gone quiet when we’ve asked for them back.
