As the first point of contact between your bike and the road surface, as well as what keeps you rolling forward, a good wheelset is a valuable addition to any bike, no matter what the level.
If your triathlon bike came with standard road bike wheels, upgrading to a set of wheels with a deeper rim will reduce wind drag, as well as improve speed and acceleration. Aerodynamic wheels are typically greater than 40mm deep at the rim, and for triathlon, it is not uncommon to see wheels as deep as 80mm, or even a disc wheel used on the rear.
A key aspect for any bike are the wheels. Light and aerodynamic are key principles. These wheels are a 55mm depth, providing a balance between weight and stability in cross winds.
The rims are built with T700 carbon to provide a light weight construction. A basalt compound is impregnated into the braking surface to aide wet weather braking. A 25mm external width and a 21mm internal width you can fit wider tyres without compromising the aero flow around the wheel.
A simple aerofoil cross section controls airflow and keeps the lines smooth. Brass nipples for strength lace stainless steel double butted pillar aero spokes to a light and reliable novatech straight pull hub.
The rear hub has a 78 point engagement so pickup is fast and power transfer is almost instantaneous. With 3 bearings in the freehub body and 2 bearings in the machined hub body load is distributed across the entire length of the axle. The freehub can be removed without special tools; so hub body changes from campagnolo, shimano and SRAM DX is quick and easy to do.
The wheelset includes skewers , carbon pads and 9/10 speed cassette shim. The wheels have a 2 year warranty and for the price provide a boost that can change your riding from a blah experience to an absolute blast.
