Racing 5 Wheelset
The already best-in-class Racing 5 wheelset goes from high to higher performance thanks to its new design.
The same qualities that have made the Racing 5 LG such a popular wheelset in the past combine new elements in order to make an affordable but also race ready wheel. The 20 spoke design in addition to the 17C wide asymmetric rear rim profile offers remarkable performance in terms of both increased lateral and torsional rigidity as well as increased reactivity. The new design allows for more homogenous spoke tensions and makes for a sturdier, higher performing wheelset.
Rim dynamic balance: The concept is simple and elegant: balance the weight of the gasket, with an item of similar weight placed on the exact opposite side. It is obtained by using two oversized spokes in the section opposite the joint. The result is a wheel with perfectly balanced rotational dynamics.
Anti-Rotation System™: Spokes and the hub housings are constructed to create a solid and unmovable whole. The result is that the spokes never lose their initial tension.
Traceability: A guarantee of quality - the little lable will provide you a guarantee in case of an ascertained defectiveness of a production batch, and so the component needed or wheel will be traceable.
Wide Rim Tech: Its greater width makes it a perfect fit for tyres of 28mm upwards.
Differentiated rim height: 24.5 mm at the front to provide optimal handling and 27,5 mm at the rear for transmitting all your power to the wheel.
asymmetric rim profile: The asymmetrical rear rim profile allows for better balancing of spoke tensions between drive and non drive side, giving better symmetry to an asymmetric component. Advantages: increased efficiency and reactivity are sure to be noted.
Oversized flange on the drive side: Provides greater torsional stiffness, increases reactivity at each change in rhythm of the pedal stroke.
