WHY CHOOSE DISC BRAKE?
Disc Brake road bikes are set to become the norm within the next few years with many major bicycle manufacturers planning to further develop Disc Brake bikes only, some having made this progressive step already. With benefits of going ‘Disc’ such as superior braking modulation in all weather conditions, greater unity between frameset and wheels which in turn delivering a more efficient overall package and even a greater life expectancy from your wheelset by eliminating rim degradation from pad ware and over heating, a common problem with carbon rims. There’s no down side to choosing Disc Brake!
RIMS – LIGHTER BY DESIGN
Lighter in construction due to the use of the FWS manufacturing method. Filament Winding System (FWS) involves winding a band of carbon fibre filaments around a 3D mould while building up rim thickness gradually and evenly resulting in a more balanced strength within the entire rim. High glass transitional temperature (hiTg) epoxy resins are used in place of regular epoxy resins and are cured at higher temperatures resulting in a greater elimination of minute air pockets within the rim structure, reducing weight, increasing stiffness and impact strength.
AERODYNAMICS – WITHOUT GIMMICKS
Aerodynamically these rims are top performers featuring a wide flared 28mm outer edge rim width with a 21mm internal track. This combined with a 23 to 28mm tyre creates a highly effective aero interface to penetrate the air with minimal amount of disturbance (drag). A shallow arc rim wall transitions into a blunt rounded inner edge profile to create a balanced overall shape that is incredibly aerodynamic and remains efficient throughout a wide range of Yaw angles while maintaining superb handling characteristics and working to your advantage whatever the conditions.
