Equipment Test wheel set # 4:
Carbon Ti X-Hub Road SL
The hub bodies of the X-Hub Road SL hubs are complex CNC-milled and rotate around a multi-conical aluminum axle. With a diameter of 17 mm brings the axle a decent stiffness in the hub. High-quality double-sealed ball bearings are installed, which ensure a permanently smooth softening. Two ball bearings are installed on the front wheel, 4 ball bearings on the rear wheel.
The axle play can be adjusted manually from the outside by hand. With super-smooth 58g and 158g, the X-Hub Road SL is among the lightest racing hubs on the market. In free-fall, four ratchets engage in a titanium sprocket to resist the onset of performance-oriented riders. The hub is designed for straight, so-called straight pull spokes. These have the advantage that they generate a little more stiffness. The bigger advantage is however somewhere else. The weak point of a bent spoke is the head, or the head with its bent part. If a spoke breaks, then usually at this point. The straight spoke does not have this weakness.
Carbon Wheel Road 35 U-shaped Clincher
Light, stable and beautifully processed carbon wheels. This rim offers an exclusive, carbon-rich carbon finish with super aerodynamic values, available in 3K or UD.
With classic rim rims the rim is suitable for all wire and folding tires. Due to the enormous width of 25 mm outside and a rim inner dimension of 18 mm, this rim offers an aerodynamic advantage compared to narrower pendants, especially as the larger rim and the U-shaped rim flank of 35 mm give the rim additional stability and aerodynamics. The best conditions for a stiff and aerodynamically favorable wheel set.
Sapim CX-Ray spokes are so-called knife spokes. The middle section is confined to 1.5 mm diameter during production and flat forged in the last working step. These processes provide a solidification of the structure and produce extremely durable spokes.
