SYNCROS wheelset 28" Capital 1.0s | 40 mm | SRAM XDR
Only the inexpensive little brother of the Capital SL - no, with the Capital 1.0s you get one of the best wheelsets the market has to offer. With him on a racing bike or gravel bike, the competition will only see you from behind and will definitely be jealous of the extraordinary look.
The perfectly finished rims are a real eye-catcher. Made from high-quality carbon fibers, they are stable and can withstand hard impacts. The rim height of 40 mm guarantees very good streamlining, but still has a certain degree of flexibility and comfort. Nevertheless, they are stiff enough to provide excellent directional stability even on fast descents. 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 rims 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.
DT Swiss Aerolite spokes connect the rim to the hub. Due to their knife shape with a flattened middle part, they offer excellent aerodynamics and also save weight. The double crossing together with the Pro Lock nipples generates a very stiff impeller. In addition, the straight design eliminates the risk of broken spokes because there is no sensitive bow.
DT Swiss 240 hubs rotate in the center of the wheelset. Not much needs to be written about them. Its indestructibility and reliability has been proven thousands of times and it fits perfectly into the overall picture of the Capital 1.0. 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.
Overall, Syncros has, as always, managed to develop an advanced and lightweight wheelset that also has a low inertia load. You will not only be impressed by it when gliding fast on the flat, it also shows its strengths in mountainous terrain or in sprints.
