Brand new - 24mm high profile aluminium rim for improved aerodynamics.
20 rear and 16 front stainless steel bladed straight-pull spokes improve lateral and torsional (power transmission) rigidity.
Elbow-less spokes make for a strong yet compliant wheel
High lateral rigidity is produced with a 3mm offset rear asymmetric rim and wide flange spacing.
The hub uses angular contact bearings designed to cradle the balls giving both radial and lateral support for superior strength and durability in real world riding conditions. They also offer precision bearing adjustment and easy maintenance.
Labyrinth and contact sealing - low-friction seals effectively shut out water, mud and dirt without affecting rotational smoothness
8, 9, 10 and 11-speed compatible
