The produced by Reynolds Aero rim provides an optimized flow ratio and thus a reduced wind resistance due to their customized form.
Ritchey's new Phantom hubs combine lightness with total weight reduction. Through the combined advantages of conventional spokes and the straight-pull spokes deleted at the hub flange which weight but saves no disadvantages in terms of rigidity leaves. At the rear hub are on the non-drive side bearing with a diameter of 24 mm and used on the drive side with 28 mm.

As a result one obtains a lighter or much more stable rim. The mounted tires can also work more freely, thereby developing more comfort at the same time reduced rolling resistance without rim.
