RITCHEY Wheelset 28" WCS Apex Carbon 50 mm Tubular
RITCHEY Wheelset 28 "WCS Apex Carbon 50 mm Tubular
Impeller sets that are built with carbon rims promise a low weight and at the same time a very high stiffness. The advantages of the carbon material are all the more significant as the rim profile increases. Reynolds produced the Aero rim, because of its adapted shape, an optimized flow ratio and thus a reduced wind resistance.
Ritchey's new phantom hubs combine ease with absolute weight reduction. Due to the combined advantages of conventional spokes and the straight-pull spokes, the flange does not need the flange, which saves weight however no disadvantages in terms of stiffness left behind. On the non-drive side, bearings with a diameter of 24 mm and on the drive side with 28 mm are used on the rear wheel hub.
Ritchey has also significantly improved braking performance. A special combination of tissue-containing surface and brake pads that are matched to it prevents overheating of the rim.
Tubular tube tire and rim are glued together. This allows a special design of the rim, which does not require classic rim horns. This structural feature allows the material to be redistributed in the rim. As a result, a lighter or significantly more stable rim is obtained. The mounted tire can also work freerand without a rims horn, thus developing more comfort with a reduced rolling resistance.
