The Helikon rear Disc wheel combines the superior aerodynamic qualities of our race proven Wave Lenticular design with a competitively light weight for a clincher or Tubeless tyre format disc. An all new twin contoured design for 2019 allows compatibility with almost every TT/Triathlon frameset out there while almost rivalling the killer aerodynamics of our current ‘Asymm’ models. A choice of hubs and the option of a full Carbon or Alloy rim allows a build specification to suit your budget without aerodynamic compromise.
The Helikon disc wheel is the perfect choice for framesets with restricting rear stay clearances that would rule out the use of our Asymm disc. The Helikon’s twin ‘Wave Lenticular’ profile has a wide central lens designed to manage airflow efficiently as it flows over the rear stays and drive-train. This central lens then flows seamlessly into the deep toroidal bulging outer rim which is designed to work best with wider 23mm to 26mm tyres. Wider tyres have less rolling resistance (Crr) and when combined with our 3 degree aero optimized tapered break track are without aerodynamic penalty. This sophisticated design out performs all flat sided discs in any angle of yaw but especially as the angle increases.
Built using a very light donor sub wheel which is then strengthened by fully bonded Carbon Fibre structural disc skins creates a wheel with the comfort of a regular road wheel which can be ridden for hours without the build up of vibration fatigue making it an ideal choice for longer events such as Iron distance Triathlons.
