SYNCROS rear wheel 28" Capital SL | 40 mm | SRAM XDR
The best is not good enough for you? Then take the very best. With this rear wheel on the bike, the competition will only see you from behind and will definitely be jealous of the extraordinary look.
According to Syncros, the Capital SL Aero is one of the fastest wheels in the world. It not only impresses with its extravagant design, the technical properties are also absolutely convincing.
The unique construction is recognizable at first glance. Everything appears to be of one piece. And that's no mistake. The rim, spokes and hub ring are made of high-strength SL carbon fibers in a monocoque construction. This avoids potential weak points during production and creates smooth transitions. In addition, the forces that occur can be better distributed, which prevents damage, especially in the case of extreme peak loads such as punctures.
Another positive effect of this design is the ultimate rigidity. Where there are no extra connection points, nothing can twist. Even heavy acceleration is immediately converted into propulsion and you always have absolute directional stability and therefore safe handling.
The aerodynamics are probably second to none. Not only the rim height has an important influence, the transitions and shapes of the individual components also have an effect. And even there the Capital SL scores. Due to the smooth transitions between rim and spokes, the wind has hardly any opportunities to attack. The latter are of course flattened out so that braking turbulence cannot arise in the first place.
In addition to stability and aerodynamics, the cross-section of the rim plays an important role in performance. Syncros opted for a hookless rim flange. This is reinforced and thus withstands hard blows. In addition, the tire fits better on the flank, which ensures a perfect seal, especially when driving tubeless.
The inner width of the rim is very generous at 25 mm. Even wider tires get a round shape and are reliably supported. So you always have a direct driving feeling and the best grip.
An individually adapted DT Swiss 240 hub rotates in the center of the wheel. Not much needs to be written about her. Its indestructibility and reliability has been proven thousands of times and it fits perfectly into the overall picture of the Capital SL Aero. The smooth-running bearings, the perfect seal and the good ease of maintenance make them the first choice for this task and guarantee high mileage. The ratchet freewheel system, with its large contact surface and 36 locking points, ensures extremely efficient power transmission and impresses with a cool sound.
All in all, Syncros has succeeded in developing an advanced and light wheel, which also has a low inertia load. So you will not only be enthusiastic about it when gliding fast on the flat, it also shows its strengths in mountainous terrain or in sprints.
