The already best-in-class Racing 5 wheelset goes from high to higher performance
thanks to its new design. The same qualities that have made the RACING 5 such a
popular wheelset in the past combine with new elements to make an affordable but
race ready wheel. The new 20 spoke design in addition to the asymmetric rear rim
profile offers notable performance increases in terms of both increased lateral and
torsional rigidity as well as increased reactivity. The new design allows for more
homogenous spoke tensions and makes for a sturdier, higher performing wheelset
that weighs in at over 100 grams less than its previous version.
Differentiated rim height: 24 mm at the front to provide optimal handling; 27,5 mm at the rear for transmitting all your power to the wheel.
New asymmetric rim profile:
asymmetrical rear rim profile allows for better
balancing of spoke tensions between drive
and non drive side, giving better symetry to an
asymmetric component. Increased efficiency and
reactivity are sure to be noted.
Double-butted steel spokes with aero profile: enable maximum aerodynamic penetration.
Oversized hubs: increase wheel stiffness and reactivity.
High grade, top quality steel bearings with cup and cone construction: reduce friction and ensure consistent performance over time.
Oversized flange on the drive side: provides greater torsional stiffness, increases reactivity at each change in rhythm of the pedal stroke.
