The already best-in-class Racing 5 wheelset goes from high to higher performancethanks to its new design. The same qualities that have made the RACING 5 such apopular wheelset in the past combine with new elements to make an affordable butrace ready wheel. The new 20 spoke design in addition to the asymmetric rear rimprofile offers notable performance increases in terms of both increased lateral andtorsional rigidity as well as increased reactivity. The new design allows for morehomogenous spoke tensions and makes for a sturdier, higher performing wheelsetthat weighs in at over 100 grams less than its previous version.
Differentiated rim height: 24mm at the front to provide optimal handling; 27.5mm 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.
