Revolver Aysmm Turbulate – Disc Brake

£2,099.00£2,580.00

The Asymm disc wheel. A breakthrough in aerodynamic design when first launched in 2015 using our concept of asymmetry. Ongoing R&D including many hours spent in the Wind Tunnel have led to several design updates since and now our most radical aerodynamic innovation is rolled out…..Turbulate! In essence this is our flagship Asymm XWide model with the introduction of our serrated ‘Turbulate’ perimeter detail which has been shown to reduce drag across a wide range of yaw but particularly at higher angles. The gains while marginal are there for all to take advantage of but this invitation is most effective at speeds around 40kph, a good average speed for the serious Triathlete. The gains are still experienced at 50kph+ but yaw angles are inevitably lower at higher speeds so the biggest advantages would be harder to realise for those averaging very high speeds.

Available currently for Disc brake only the Asymm Turbulate uses our 28mm XWide rim which is aerodynamically efficient with 23mm to 28mm Tubeless or Clincher tyres. Rolling on the latest DT Swiss 240 exp hub you can be confident of superb quality and durability with an added option to upgrade to Ceramicspeed coated bearings for the absolute ultimate in rolling efficiency.

Description

THINKING OUTSIDE THE BOX

The Asymm disc wheel range have an Asymmetrical cross section profile developed by Revolver.  This breakthrough in design came together by going back to the drawing board and re-designing each side of the wheel independently.  The result of this process is a wheel with completely different shaped ‘drive’  and ‘non drive’ sides, both using lenticular profiles, but in different ways within the confines of the practical space available.  Built using a very light donor sub wheel which is then strengthened by fully bonded Carbon Fiber structural disc skins creates a wheel with the comfort of a regular road wheel which can be ridden for hours without the buildup of vibration fatigue, making it an ideal choice for longer events such as Full and Half Iron distance Triathlon.

WHY GO WIDE?

Most modern wider rim race wheels developed in recent years allow for the use of faster rolling (lower Crr) wider tyres but there’s usually an aerodynamic trade off to consider.  The 2020 Asymm  is available in two rim options – ‘Regular’ with a wide 19mm inner bead track recommended for use with 23mm or 25mm tyres for optimal aerodynamic tyre to rim interface and  ‘XWide’ with a market leading 21mm inner bead track recommended for optimal use with 25mm or 28mm tyres.  Note that frame and brake clearances must be taken into consideration when thinking of going  XWide with Rim Brake models.

ASYMMETRICAL PROFILE

The drive side of the Asymm has our Wave Lenticular Profile comprising of a wide central lens area that flows seamlessly into a deep toroidal bulging outer rim designed to work best with wider 23mm, 25mm and even 28mm tyres .  Wider tyres have less rolling resistance and when combined with our aero optimised flared brake track are without aerodynamic penalty.  This sophisticated design out performs all flat sided discs in any angle of yaw while still allowing full use of all cassette options including 12 speed.

The non-drive side of the Asymm is completely different.  A deeply dished perfect lens that makes full use of the lateral space available,  greater here due to the lack of a drivetrain system.  This is the ultimate shape for a wheel out performing any other at all Yaw angles and is currently only seen on the very best track specific discs wheels available such as those used by Team GB.

The combination of these profiles, both the ultimate shape for purpose, a rim designed specifically for wider faster rolling tyres and our vibration soaking construction method produce a wheel with unparalleled all round performance.  Quite simply the fastest TT/Triathlon specific wheel available.
