3T Aeronova LTD Handlebar 3T Aeronova LTD Handlebar
3T's Aeronova LTD Handlebar is just about the tippy-top peak of cycling cockpit technology that you can put your hands around today. For some perspective, consider that 3T enjoyed some pretty high-profile exposure at this year's Tour courtesy of Dennis' stint in yellow and Teklehaimanot's longer turn in polka dots, but not even riders of their caliber default to the LTD level. Instead, their machines display the telltale red accents of 3T's Team kit. Given its rarity -- even amongst the most celebrated cyclists on the planet -- the Aeronova LTD Handlebar is the HC version of cycling kit: lighter, stiffer, and all-around better even than what much of the peloton rides. As with the Team version ridden by Teklehaimanot during his endless miles off the front in this year's Tour, the Aeronova LTD's flats feature a NACA airfoil shape, which does exactly what you'd expect: cut through air and manage laminar flow across its surface to reduce drag and increase efficiency. The flattened, tapered shape also presents a broad, slightly tapered surface to your palms, netting just a bit more comfort while you're recovering in wheels between turns at the front. The drops also benefit from the involved tinkering of 3T's engineers with an ergonomic shape that tightens up the reach to the aggressive spot at the front while also improving the platform for sprinting or covering attacks.

3T Aeronova LTD Stealth Handlebar 3T Aeronova LTD Stealth Handlebar
3T's Aeronova LTD Stealth Handlebar flies under the radar in all the important categories: drag, weight, and looks. While the first two are important in a save-every-watt kind of way, we aren't ashamed to admit that we're equally as excited about the LTD Stealth's muted aesthetics. The silver accents on the normal Aeronova LTD may not be as flashy as the red Team issue kit ridden by the BMC Racing Team, but the Stealth model takes the murdered-out matte look to extreme levels. Looks aside for now, the Aeronova LTD Stealth's low weight and aerodynamic considerations are also pretty damn extreme. The aerodynamic, NACA airfoil shape of the bar's tops are the same as those on the Team version ridden by BMC, but the LTD's higher modulus, unidirectional carbon fiber means it comes in even lighter, weighing a full 15 claimed grams less than the kit used by the likes of Gilbert and van Garderen. If you're looking to save even more grams by leaving the tops un-taped, channels for internal cable routing keep your cockpit tidy. The drops describe the "ergo" shape of 3T's Compact design. Compared to the drops of 3T's more traditional Round curve, the Compact shape features a tighter reach and drop. This shape allows for the hoods to be positioned low and fast in order to accommodate the tendency for today's cyclists to spend most of their time there rather than in the drops. The Compact bars mean aggressive hoods don't come at the cost of the drops being out of reach, so you can still comfortably tuck on descents or long solo moves.

3T Aeronova Team Carbon Handlebar 3T Aeronova Team Carbon Handlebar
Aluminum is wonderful. It's given us cans, airplanes, foil, and so much more, but the fact is that you wouldn't want to enter into the race of your life with handlebars made from soda cans. Better to have something made from carbon like the 3T Aeronova Team Carbon Handlebar. No need to waste breath telling you that the Aeronova is ultralight, so let's focus on shape. Carbon can be sculpted more easily than aluminum, which allows the engineers at 3T to build the Aeronova with a full aerofoil teardrop cross section that cuts through the wind with less resistance, a marginal gain that seriously adds up over long distances. All the aerodynamics in the world are no good if your bars don't feel right when you use them, though. 3T builds the Aeronova with an accessible 127mm drop, so you don't need to be a all limbs to get comfortable and efficient, and a 104mm reach that lets you get out of the saddle while climbing or get low and aero when you're practicing your solo skills. Six degrees of flare help take stress off your wrists during long days off the front by yourself, and internal cable routing lets you cut down on weight by skipping bar tape on the flats.

3T Aerotundo LTD Handlebar 3T Aerotundo LTD Handlebar
All handlebars are not created equal, and when you're building up your svelte carbon racing machine, bars are a crucial piece for both fit and (let's admit it) aesthetics. Fortunately, 3T has always had its clean lines and subtle colors dialed, and the Aerotundo LTD Handlebar only confirms these trends; however, it's also built with the aerodynamic pedigree to race. Sitting at the top end of 3T's collection of drop bars, the Aerotundo LTD boasts a high-modulus, unidirectional carbon fiber construction that adds just 185g to your overall setup while helping minimize road vibrations during long rides. Its efficient design is set up for internal cable routing for compatibility with electronic drivetrains, as well as to keep the lines of your frame as smooth and uninterrupted as possible while eliminating drag. In terms of shaping, 3T gave the Aerotundo LTD a longer reach than its more traditional drop bars, orienting cyclists further forward in an aggressive, stretched-out position that lends itself to racing more than casual rides. As you grip the drops, you'll have a moderate, square bend to hang onto, similar to 3T's Rotundo bars, which gives you freedom to move around and find your ideal hand position over the course of a ride or race. Wide, flat airfoil tops provide a place of respite for your hands during long climbs, allowing you to release the tension in your shoulders and back while they maintain the overall aerodynamics of the bars. The Aerotundo LTD is also compatible with 3T clip-ons, just in case you find yourself with a sudden mid-season desire to jump into a tri or two.

3T Aerotundo Team Handlebar 3T Aerotundo Team Handlebar
The teens are shaping up to be the decade of aerodynamics in the peloton: wheels, frames, shoes, helmets, and even bibs and jerseys are pitching in with wind-dodging designs. Little wonder, then, that handlebars -- the bike's leading edge -- should be early adapters, and 3T has (of course) been one of the first to ride the wave of aerodynamic designs with kit like the Aerotundo Team Handlebar. The Aerotundo starts with the stiffness, low weight, and vibration damping of carbon fiber, standard for race kit today, and then dives unflinching into the realm of innovative shaping. The Aerotundo's flats feature a NACA airfoil shape, which does exactly what you'd expect: cut through air and manage laminar flow as it detaches into the bar's wake, reducing drag and increasing efficiency. The flattened, tapered cross section also provides an unlooked for cure to one of the common ailments of traditionally rounded bars. It not only provides a wider surface across which to distribute palm pressure while cruising on the flats, but the teardrop profile also means that the Aerotundo's flat surface slopes toward the back, lining it up with your hands' angle of approach. Compared to the flattened but parallel-to-the-ground cross section of 3T's Ergo series, some of us find the Aero shape to be even more comfortable. Though the tops benefit immensely from the protean mutability of carbon fiber, the Aerotundo's drops are the classic, rounded, deep profile that we've been in love with ever since we first saw grainy footage of LeMond and la Blaireau finishing together on l'Alpe in our childhood. LeMond may have later revolutionized handlebars with his famous Tour-winning time trial, but his traditional drops in '86 made a far more indelible impression on our inchoate psyches. For all the draw of innovation, many of us love cycling for the associations of its history and material culture, and the deep, sweeping profile of the Aerotundo's 139mm drops and 113mm reach -- 12 and 9mm more, ..

3T Aerotundo Team Stealth Handlebar 3T Aerotundo Team Stealth Handlebar
Many of us are keen to take advantage of the flashy shaping -- and its inherent aerodynamic advantage -- of 3T's Aerotundo Stealth Handlebar. But. We aren't all necessarily feeling the fire engine inspired, swooping graphical flair of 3T's standard Team line. The Aerotundo Team Stealth Handlebar provides an alternative, murdered-out aesthetic that's especially appreciated if, like many of us, you prefer to leave the flattened aerodynamic top section unwrapped. Aesthetic differences aside, the matte-finish Aerotundo Team Stealth bar features the same stiff, low weight, vibration damping carbon construction as its less muted counterpart, and it also presents the same NACA airfoil shape to the wind across its flats. While the non-round shape certainly catches the eye, 3T and common sense both suggest that it avoids catching the wind more effectively than traditional round bars. The flattened, tapered shape also provides an unlooked for benefit, providing a wide, flat surface that distributes pressure across more of a rider's palm. The teardrop profile also means that the Aerotundo's flats slope toward the back, lining up with a cyclist's hands' angle of approach. Though the peculiarly shaped tops benefit immensely from the virtually unlimited lay-up shapes available to carbon fiber, the Aerotundo's drops are the classic, rounded profile of yesteryear. Like a wool jersey to the latest five material speedsuits or lugged steel to monocoque carbon, the Aerotundo's deep, rounded drops speak the poetry of cycling's past to the tech-heavy science of 3T's Ergo drop bars. Ergo shaping may appeal to some cyclists, but just as many others find it awkward and convoluted when compared to the beautiful simplicity of the proportional curve across the Aerotundo's 139mm depth and 113mm reach -- 12 and 9mm more, respectively, than 3T's ergo models.

3T Ergonova LTD Handlebar 3T Ergonova LTD Handlebar
Every second that you're on your bike, you're on your bars (except for those opened-armed kiss-blowing arm-flexing finish line celebrations that you're known for), and that means bars matter. That's why ergo bars have become so popular, and there's no better ergo bar than the 3T Ergonova LTD Handlebar. The LTD line is 3T's top-shelf product category, and that means the 3T designers went to insane lengths to ensure the Ergonova is just about the lightest, sexiest, and most comfortable handlebar around. Sure, the carbon composite that's used is the lightest on the market, but that only matters because 3T uses high-tech computer-aided processes that shape super-aero bars, gives the bars to real riders for testing, and then redesigns according to their feedback. The resulting bars have an egg- or teardrop-shaped top that's more comfortable to grip, and a drop that makes it easy for riders with smaller hands to reach the brake levers from any riding position. 3T also designed with every different rider size in mind, so the Ergonova comes in all sorts of sizes to fit everyone from Kittel-sized sprinter to Quintana-esque climbers.

3T Ergonova LTD Stealth Handlebar 3T Ergonova LTD Stealth Handlebar
As it does with its traditional drop bars, 3T bestowed careful attention to detail on its top-end Ergonova LTD Stealth Handlebar, shaping it in the increasingly popular ergonomic style and creating the option for a cockpit that works more naturally with your body's anatomy in the saddle. If you're looking to make a noticeable departure from shallow, race-focused bars, the Ergonova LTD Stealth is a versatile addition to any frame, accommodating a wide range of riders without adding unnecessary grams to your setup. 3T constructs the Ergonova LTD Stealth using high-modulus carbon fiber, and their top-of-the-line LTD distinction signifies that during production, the carbon fiber is laid up for the best possible balance of strength and weight. The result is an overall claimed weight of just 180g on a bar that feels far more substantial than its weight suggests. It's shaped with wide, flat tops for resting your wrists during long pulls on the front and a six-degree flare on the bar ends that extends the width by 16mm for a more relaxed shoulder position while slugging away in the drops. The bar's flared drops also allow the brake hoods to remain closer to one another, better accommodating riders with narrower shoulders. The actual drop and reach of the Ergonova stays with the versatile theme as well, at a moderate 77mm reach and 123mm drop to ensure smaller-framed riders are able to use the Ergonova comfortably and that won't leave you dreading spending long, winding descents in your drops. Please note that the Ergonova LTD Stealth can't be fitted with any type of clip-on aerobars.

When you're cruising down empty country roads with only fence posts and cows for company, are you really gonna be thinking about how much your fancy carbon bars weigh' Probably not, especially when you can ride with the comfort provided by the 3T Ergnova Pro Handlebar. It has the same ergonomic shape as 3T's more expensive carbon bars, with a teardrop profile that's easy on your hands and cuts through the wind, and a 123mm drop that makes it easy for riders with smaller hands to get on the brakes. We can't say that the aluminum Ergnova Pro is as light as carbon bars, but they still check in at a very reasonable 265g in the 42cm width. Add that to the piece of mind that you get with durable aluminum bars, and the Ergnova becomes something of a no-brainer for recreational riders who demand comfort and performance.

3T Ergosum Pro Handlebar 3T Ergosum Pro Handlebar
3T's Ergosum Pro Handlebar returns with the same design tweaks that fit your body rather than forcing your body to adapt to it. Instead of a rounded curve, the drops describe two flattened lengths connected at rounded angles. These flat areas provide two definite platforms for you to anchor your efforts whether you're sprinting or taking pulls in the break. The cross section also contributes to a stable grip, with a slightly flattened shape that puts more surface area against the meat of your palms and better fills out your grip. If you're like many of us, then you may have mixed opinions about the cost-to-benefit ratio of carbon bars, and kit like the Ergosum Pro, with its low claimed weight of 245g (size 42cm) and a well-vetted history of durability under duress, definitely appeals to the cost-conscious racer. While we aren't worried about carbon bars breaking on the road, we do recognize their tendency to break the bank, and we also appreciate the ability to freely adjust our cockpit without a torque wrench.

3T Ergosum Team Stealth Handlebar 3T Ergosum Team Stealth Handlebar
The angled length of the 3T Ergosum Team Stealth Handlebar's drops may once have been a novelty, but they're no longer a rare sight in the peloton or the bike shop. The rise of the ergonomic drop began with the trend of ever more aggressive stack heights: as the bars got lower, the riders began spending more and more time on the hoods. It also created a huge gap between the rider and the forward, aggressive spot on the drops, so the ergonomic shape was developed to not only bring that sprinting platform back within reach, but to level it out for a more secure, definite grip in the chaos of the bunch finish. While ergonomic drops have become the new standard, many of us find that the latest trend of bloated, flattened-out tops on handlebars' just adds unnecessary weight and makes our cockpit accessory mounts incompatible. It also expands the flats -- formerly a place of comforting refuge for our hands on long climbs or after we've blown up -- to the point where they're just too damned big to be comfortable. The traditional, round shape of the Ergosum's tops leaves the power in your hands. You can run them with minimalist, barely there tape or pad them out with gel padding. Chances are good that your various peripherals are all built to clamp onto this shape, too, and the bars themselves are reinforced for use with clip-on aerobars. That reinforcement also means that, even for the biggest, strongest rider, the bars won't fail while you're torquing them in a sprint -- though we do recommend using a torque wrench while you're torquing on them in the shop.

3T Rotundo Pro Handlebar 3T Rotundo Pro Handlebar
Workhorse, bombproof -- few words feel as beaten to death across the industry when describing kit. The truth is that these words often translate to: not carbon. While applying the "not carbon" label to 3T's Rotundo Pro Handlebar is not technically fallacious, it is an act of gross underestimation. Given the similar stiffness and worry-free installation of the Rotundo Pro's 7075 alloy construction, the only real distinction between it and the more expensive (read: carbon) Team model is the weight. The Pro model still features the grip-it-anywhere comfort of a round cross section and smoothly transitioning drops, which describe one of the most classic silhouettes in cycling. In terms of dimensions, that silhouette manifests as a slightly shorter reach and significantly more pronounced drop than its ergonomic counterpart. The short reach allows the levers to be positioned a little closer for a more upright, comfortable posture while you're noodling on the hoods. Conversely, the longer drop means that when it's time to get serious in a finale or aerodynamic on a long solo move, you can hit a lower, more aggressive posture as the situation demands. But the weight. It's true. Compared to the Rotundo Pro, the Team does save around 50 claimed grams; however, we'd suggest that if you're that worried about saving weight, then you might just opt for the Pro and drop grams by cutting off the man bun, instead. That way, you'll not only save a couple hundred dollars and the aneurysm-inducing stress of precisely measuring Newton meters while building your cockpit, you'll also avoid future ridicule on par with what you currently get every time your group ride buddies see pics of you from grade school with a bowl cut or the fashion mullet and waxed mustache from that period in 2012 when you only wore paisley print skinsuits in the saddle.

While we don't doubt that 20 years from now we'll be riding 6lb bikes with telepathic shifting and hydraulic braking, we're fairly sure we'll still rely on cork handlebar tape. Cork is just thick enough to absorb a bit of road shock; it's just tacky enough so your sweaty hands won't slip when you move from hoods to tops; and by putting a fresh wrap on your bars you make your bike like pretty much new. Can you really improve upon that' We don't think so. Our pals at Arundel -- creators of the world's best bottle cages -- now make bar tape. It comes in a variety of solid colors. In each color you get "Arundel" printed along the tape, with cork flecks subtly visible throughout the tape.

Brooks England C17 Cambium Saddle - Men's Brooks England C17 Cambium Saddle - Men's
The Brooks C17 Cambium Saddles are a massive, tectonic-plate-shifting departure from the venerable saddle maker. Why' Because they're not leather. Brooks made its name over the last century making the best leather saddles on the planet. Even as other saddle makers adopted microfibers, foams, gels, and other modern materials, Brooks remained steadfast. Now, though, they've developed a rubber/canvas construction technique that offers all the benefits of their leather saddles in a weather- and vegan-friendly package. The shell of the saddle is a natural rubber, which is vulcanized to a cotton canvas topper. The break-in period for a Brooks saddle is nearly as legendary as the saddles themselves, and the Cambiums are a bit different, though special care should still be taken. The rubber needs very little breaking in -it should be quite comfortable out of the box. The canvas topper, however, is a bit rough, and will abrade Lycra shorts quickly and severely. For this reason, we recommend breaking this saddle in on a more casual bike (one that you'd wear jeans on) before putting it on a bike that will see Lycra time.

This is especially important for a saddle bearing the Brooks name, as the smooth ride of the brand's leather saddles sets an incredibly high bar for the Cambium to match. The cover is an organic cotton canvas, which softens with miles, yielding an incredibly comfortable ride feel. The two layers are vulcanized, forming them into a single piece that will remain intact for the life of the saddle. This shell rests on die cast aluminum blocks, which maintain the shape of the saddle. This being the women's version, it has a slightly shorter nose, which better accommodates female anatomy. The 162mm tail width offers generous support for those with medium-width sit bones. It's a bit wider than typical racing saddles, which many riders find more comfortable for longer durations in the saddle. The Brooks Cambium Women's Saddle is available in one size, and in the colors Natural, and Slate.

Campagnolo Alloy TT Brake Levers Campagnolo Alloy TT Brake Levers
Campagnolo's arsenal of time trial equipment includes these Alloy TT Brake Levers. They're designed to be installed in the ends of any modern time trial or bullhorn base bar. They offer a sleek aerodynamic profile along with a functional detail that Campagnolo brake users will appreciate. Like their Ergopower levers, they have a tension release on the lever to open the caliper and facilitate quick and easy wheel changes. Another detail that we really like is that the levers have torsion springs that keep them snug and rattle-free rather than relying on the tension in the cable system to do the job (in our experience, it never does). This way, all you'll hear as you enter your personal world of pain is the wind whistling over your helmet and the whoosh whoosh of your disc wheel on the pavement. The Campagnolo Alloy TT Brake Levers are right and left specific. They're marked on the brake tension release button. They come with Campagnolo stainless steel inner wires, housing, and ferrules.

Campagnolo Bora Ultra 35 Wheelset - Clincher Campagnolo Bora Ultra 35 Wheelset - Clincher
Except for the fact these are the more convenient clincher version instead of tubular, the Campagnolo Bora Ultra 35 Wheelset featured here is the same model that Valverde used to dismantle the opposition in the latest of his La Fleche/Liege doubles. While we don't all have the surgical nous with which the Spaniard controlled and dissected his opposition, we can at least take advantage of the same tools. Not only does the Bora Ultra 35 rim cut through the wind like a medical-grade scalpel, it also features an updated rim width. For 2015, the Bora's width is increased to 24. 2 millimeters, which expands the tire's volume and straightens the sidewalls. This makes for more secure grip in corners and lower rolling resistance while letting you run a lower PSI for a cushier ride. The width also nets better lateral stiffness, more structural integrity, and -- in a counter-intuitive twist -- actually improves aerodynamics. The CULT cup and cone bearings are behind Campagnolo hubs' legendary rolling performance. CULT marries the smoothest ceramic bearings with thermochemically treated Cronitect races for a claimed 3. 5 more watts per pedal stroke over non-CULT bearings. The interface between the ceramic balls and Cronitect races is so smooth that they virtually don't wear out and only require a thin film of oil instead of grease. All told, Campagnolo touts these as the lowest friction bearings in the world. While we normally approach anything that smacks of marketing hyperbole with healthy skepticism, taking the Boras for a spin lends credence to Campy's claim. A good wheel can't just go well; it also has to stop well, and the new 3Diamant braking surface addresses some of the key braking issues we've had with carbon rims in the past. Campagnolo literally uses diamonds to hone the brake track to near perfection, removing imperfections and resin so that the pads connect straight to a strip of slightly textured carbon. This reduces the time it takes for the brake pads to gr...

If you're looking for the crowning touch on your Campagnolo equipped ride, the Bora Ultra 50 Wheelset in clincher format has to be at the top of the list. Campy's attention to ride quality, weight, and aerodynamics builds a wheelset that is a top performer and the envy of all road cyclists. You simply can't find a wheelset that checks off every performance attribute, offering the perfect balance, while virtually dripping in sex appeal. The addition of the clincher rim, which Campagnolo has bumped the width up to 24. 2 millimeters wide at the brake track, creates a wheelset that you can enjoy on every ride. Campy's modern technology melds perfectly with the storied tradition of one of cycling's most iconic brands creating what we believe are some of the most beautiful wheels.The wider rims make the Boras better everywhere extending to improved handling, ability to corner harder, lower rolling resistance, and an overall smoother ride. It also improves lateral stiffness and improves aerodynamics at wind yaw-angles typical in most riding situations. The width also allows Campagnolo to build a lighter weight wheelset by constructing a more structurally sound rim with less material. The wider internal width allows you to run wider tires, up to 27 millimeters, for a plush ride with more traction.The CULT cup and cone bearings contribute to Campagnolo hubs' legendary rolling performance.

Campagnolo Chorus 11 Ergopower Shifters Campagnolo Chorus 11 Ergopower Shifters
Despite living in the shadow of their legendary Record and Super Record counterparts, the Campagnolo Chorus 11 Ergopower Shifters have developed their own devoted following. This may be because they incorporate the same shifting mechanism without the more exotic materials. It may be because a pro of Ms. Compton's caliber actually chose to use Chorus shifters on the way to four national titles and while dominating in Europe because her component choices weren't limited by sponsorship. Whatever the reason, Chorus brings all that Campagnolo has to offer into a slightly heavier, more affordable range. For 2015, the Chorus Shifters enjoy the same redesigned cable pull ratio as Super Record and Record. It's been updated for faster, more precise shifting, which means the 2015 Chorus Shifters are incompatible with groups from 2014 and earlier. You can still effect a shift of up to three cogs on the downshift and five cogs on the upshift with one lever throw, though, a feature that remains a Campy exclusive. The big winner with the new shifting ratio comes up front. Each throw of the front shifter has three clicks. Shifting to the large ring requires all three clicks (via one swipe); shifting to the small ring requires two clicks with a third reserved for trim adjustment to avoid cross gearing. This means you get to ride all 22 gear combinations with no chain rubbing. The new Vari-Cushion silicone rubber hoods incorporate varying densities of hypoallergenic silicone and are textured with a waffle pattern on the inside for additional cushion. The external pattern is a return to the pebbly texture of Campy's old ten-speed models, but with a more structured, modern design than the old faux-leather look. The tiny bumps provide traction while their surrounding grooves channel away water for an easy grip. The levers also contribute to a confident ride courtesy of their overall shape, which feels as though it was molded inside a pair of hands. Unlike the pricier Super Record...

Campagnolo Chorus 11 Front Derailleur Campagnolo Chorus 11 Front Derailleur
The Campagnolo Chorus 11 Front Derailleur may be the biggest beneficiary of the group's redesign for 2015. The new cable pull ratio in the Chorus shifters means that it enjoys an extra position of trim while in the small ring, so you can actually use all 22 gear combinations in your drivetrain with no chain rubbing. That fact alone is enough to inspire us to break out in joyful song, but the new derailleur has a few other improvements that make the deal even sweeter. For 2015, the derailleur gets a longer cage for greater leverage, so less force is required to effect an upshift. The cage is also narrower, so you can exert more precise control over shifts. The metal cage is built to stress silent shifting without sacrificing Campagnolo's legendary snappiness. The derailleur also includes an optional cable deviator insert. With some internally routed frames, the front shifting cable comes out so close to the derailleur that it can rub against it. The deviator insert prevents this. The Campagnolo Chorus 11 Front Derailleur is only compatible with 2015 Campagnolo Super Record, Record, and Chorus drivetrains. Compatibility can be determined by matching the letter on the bike side of the inside arm with the corresponding markings on your other drivetrain components.

Campagnolo Chorus 11 Rear Derailleur Campagnolo Chorus 11 Rear Derailleur
When it comes to effectively conducting the chorus of your cassette, few options can rival Campagnolo's Chorus 11 Rear Derailleur. The Chorus model does make some concessions to its more expensive Record and Super Record counterparts. Namely, it makes 13 and 17 concessions, respectively, which are the number of grams of extra weight it carries in comparison. As far as function goes, the Chorus has the same internals and receives the same updated operation, but at a price point that appeals to the self-sponsored cyclist. The brains of the derailleur are the cross section springs, which have rectangular cross sections for an increased return load. In conjunction with the new Chorus shifters' cable pull ratio, this translates to faster, more precise shifting -- in both directions. The parallelogram's motion as you shift across the cassette has also been revamped for 2015. It corresponds to the size of each cog, so the top pulley stays the same distance away from the cassette whether you're using the crit-spec'd 11-23 or the all-terrain 11-29 cassette. This keeps the chain seated securely on the cassette at an angle of engagement that transfers maximum power into propelling the bike forward. It also reduces wear on your chain and cassette. The parallelogram and cage are made with carbon, while the upper and lower bodies are made from a technopolymer that's lighter than metal but can still stand up to any abuse from the elements or the occasional user error (read: crash). The Chorus model's pulleys don't get the same lightweight polymer of the Record and Super Record derailleurs, and its parallelogram doesn't have the weight-reducing cutouts. It also uses steel bearings and small parts instead of the ceramic bearings and titanium of its more expensive counterparts. The Campagnolo Chorus 11 Rear Derailleur is only compatible with 2015 Campagnolo Super Record, Record, and Chorus drivetrain components. Compatibility can be confirmed by matching the letter on the body'...

Campagnolo EPS V2 Power Unit Campagnolo EPS V2 Power Unit
The engineering team at Campagnolo knew their original electronic drivetrain power unit was exceptionally efficient, but they felt that the design could be improved in terms of both aerodynamics and versatility. Their research resulted in the new EPS V2 Power Unit, which features a slimmed down, cylindrical design that provides several advantages over the first generation model. The biggest news is that the new power unit enables internal mounting -- in the seat tube, down tube, or top tube -- providing the obvious aerodynamic benefits but also even greater protection from the elements and impact. Those who choose to mount the unit externally will encounter less wind resistance due to the new profile. Other than the new shape and lower weight (a claimed 130g compared to the original's 170g), the Power Unit is relatively unchanged. Digital Tech Intelligence (DTI) remains the brains of the entire Electronic Power Shift (EPS) system, and performs the most important operations in blisteringly fast time. For movement operations, DTI is in constant communication with the EPS V2 Interface Unit, receiving digital signals from the EPS Shift Levers, processing them through unique algorithms, and translating that information into the movements for the front and rear derailleurs. Concurrently, DTI is checking and maintaining onboard diagnostics, managing and checking the charge status of the battery pack, and controlling all derailleur automatic correction functions. DTI is the fail-safe against all system anomalies in EPS, signaling warnings through an acoustical buzzer on the undercarriage of the Power Unit and transmitting a signal to the EPS Interface, which communicates the information to you through a detailed RGB-variant color coding system. It also relays a message upon resolution of any system anomaly. As mentioned, the EPS Power Unit also houses the Battery Pack that powers the Digital Tech Intelligence.

When Campagnolo introduced the Ergopower H11 Disc Brakes to the market, Campy faithfuls became ecstatic about gaining authoritative stopping force without having to swap to another manufacturer's group. In typical Campagnolo fashion, the H11 Crankset is designed to integrate seamlessly with their disc brakes, as well as their mechanical and electronic groups (except for Chorus EPS, which isn't compatible with H11 Disc Brakes). To achieve a harmonious chain line with disc-equipped wheels, Campy pushes out the H11 Cassette and Crankset by 2. 5-millimeters each to accommodate the wider spacing of 12 x 142mm rear axles. This means you'll retain an optimal chain line with wider disc wheel spacing, without disturbing the 145. 5-millimeter q-factor you've become accustomed to on the road. The crank arms are constructed from carbon fiber for the lightest weight possible and stiff power transfer when you're cranking up steep climbs and hammering away at a brisk cadence.

Campagnolo H11 Ergopower Hydraulic Lever & Disc Brake Caliper Campagnolo H11 Ergopower Hydraulic Lever & Disc Brake Caliper
Pairing the praised ergonomics of Campagnolo Ergopower shift levers with the reliable stopping force of Magura disc brakes, the H11 Ergopower Hydraulic Lever and Disc Brake Caliper Set represents Campy's foray into the world of hydraulic disc brakes with engineering support from their German friends. Campagnolo claims its new disc brakes offer greater stopping power than both of the major competitors with less hand force required, regardless of the riding conditions. This hydraulic lever and disc brake caliper set is compatible with all of Campy's mechanical-shift groups, including the likes of Super Record, Record, and Chorus. Going beyond the coveted Italian brand's area of expertise, the H11 Ergopower Hydraulic Disc Brakes are the result of months of painstaking development and research. Since Campagnolo had no experience in this area, they enlisted the engineering help of Magura for developing early prototypes of the hydraulic master cylinder and oil flow system. The master cylinder design features a bleed port atop the vertical center for easier servicing, meaning you won't have to move the levers back and forth to shake out air bubbles. It uses a blue mineral oil similar to what Magura uses in their hydraulic disc brakes, meaning it doesn't absorb water and lubricates the entire system for reliable stopping without requiring regular bleeding of old fluid. Through this collaboration with Magura, Campagnolo aimed to create a reliable and powerful braking system with high levels of modulation--all without disturbing the ergonomics Campy faithfuls have come to love. The result is a lever design that's only eight-millimeters taller than non-hydro Campy levers, which is less significant than the competition. Best of all, the contact area of the lever body remains virtually the same as non-hydro Ergopower levers, meaning you'll only feel a minimal difference in riding ergonomics. The shift levers maintain the same position as the current crop of Ergopower mechan...

If you're looking to win Grand Tours, you might want Campagnolo's Super Record Crankset, but if you're not making a career out of cycling, the Record 11 4-Arm Crankset delivers everything you'll ever need--and then some. The crankset is built around the legendary USB (Ultra Smooth Bearings) technology for near-frictionless rotation, which provides huge gains over the Chorus, but the spider's arms have decreased from five to four, which saves weight and makes the Record stiffer than ever before. Metal has been replaced with carbon in key zones, and the crank arms are hollowed out wherever possible to keep things light and fast. Aerodynamics only really matter if they're incorporated across every part of your setup, which is why Campy designed the Record 11 to slice smoothly through the air, using the same philosophy it applied to the Shamal wheelset, which itself revolutionized wheel aerodynamics in the '90s. Parts of the Record 11, like the steel Ultra-Torque axle, haven't changed (although it's not quite as light as the titanium of the Super Record), so you'll still enjoy the feel and performance that made you fall in love with Campy in the first place.

Campagnolo Super Record 11 EPS Shifters Campagnolo Super Record 11 EPS Shifters
For more than 75 years, Campagnolo has been at the forefront of cycling innovation. From the invention of the quick-release hub to the Gran Sport derailleur, Campagnolo has always tackled difficult challenges with a sense of bravado that's won them a fiercely loyal fan base. So, it's not surprising that Campagnolo spent twenty years and went through six research models to develop the ultimate in electronic shifter design, the Super Record 11 EPS Ergopower Shifters. To make sure they got it right, Campagnolo subjected this electronic breakthrough to over a season under the legs of the MoviStar Team. While long out of reach for non-professionals, Campagnolo' s electronic prototypes are in production, and preferential accessibility is a thing of the past. EPS shift levers are coming to take the cycling world by storm. Campagnolo rethought the mold, quite literally, of lever design when it developed the EPS, or Electronic Power Shift, to surpass its mechanical shifters. While competitors integrated an adjustable lever position into their existing shifters' designs, Campagnolo engineers conducted studies on the ergonomic functionality of shifters to develop the e-Ergonomy Evolution, a re-design of the esteemed Ergopower Levers. Along with new dedicated hoods, the new levers follow the contours of the hand to create more contact and control, direct powerful braking, and full lever usage from any forward position on the bars, and for any hand size. The position of Lever Three, for downshifting, has also changed from the mechanical Super Record; it's now swept down into a smooth, longer contour that requires less compression, and nearly eliminates the long reach of its predecessor. The new Lever 3 makes the downshift more accessible from deep in the drops and more comfortable from the hoods. As expected, Campagnolo engineers have gone above and beyond to accommodate Campy purists wary of electronic shifting by retaining their 'one lever, one shift' motto, and by develop...

Campagnolo Super Record 11 Ergopower Shifters Campagnolo Super Record 11 Ergopower Shifters
How do you improve on a legend' The simple answer is to make it work better, and that's exactly what Campagnolo did with its Super Record Road Bike Brake Levers with Integrated Shifters. As with all the Ultra-Shift levers, the Super Records allow you to upshift up to 3 gears or downshift 5 gears with a single motion. The improvement lies in the amount of cable that's pulled. The new shifters provide faster, more precise shifting. Unfortunately, this also means that the new shifters are not compatible with the 2014 drivetrain. The new Vari-Cushion silicone rubber hoods employ varying densities of hypoallergenic silicone and an internal waffle pattern for added padding. The shape is upgraded, as well, with a more ergonomic feel. The new levers are made with titanium internals. They also incorporate an improved pivot point that gives you as much braking power on the hood as you have in the drops.

Campagnolo Super Record 11 Front Derailleur Campagnolo Super Record 11 Front Derailleur
For 2015, Campagnolo reworked its already ultra-precise shifting. In the Super Record 11 Front Derailleur the word is "trim." In the small ring you now get an extra click of trim to ensure perfect alignment of all 22 gears. You are even able to use your gears when they are fully cross-chained. The cage is longer for greater leverage so that less force is needed for upshifting, and it is narrower to guide the chain even more effectively. While the inner cage is alloy, the outer is lightweight carbon, which leaves the derailleur weighing in at 71 grams.

Campagnolo Super Record 11 Rear Derailleur Campagnolo Super Record 11 Rear Derailleur
Campagnolo's improved design for the Super Record 11 Rear Derailleur provides quicker, more precise shifting than the previous iteration. Campagnolo's redesign complements the change in cable pull ratio for the new shifters and features rectangular cross sections for an increased return load. Also, to keep the chain seated securely on the cassette for maximum power transmission, Campagnolo adjusted the parallelogram's motion as you shift across the cassette. Not only does this enhance power transmission, but it also reduces wear on your chain and cassette. Campagnolo uses carbon fiber for the parallelogram and cage, and the upper and lower bodies use a strong, lightweight monolithic technopolymer. The pulleys are made with a lightweight polymer and are designed with cut-outs to save additional weight. Ceramic bearings in the bottom pulley and titanium screws also aid in keeping the Super Record 11 light. Finally, Campagnolo's Super Record Rear Derailleur is only compatible with 2015 Campagnolo Super Record, Record, and Chorus drivetrain components.

Campagnolo Super Record 11 Rear Derailleur Campagnolo Super Record 11 Rear Derailleur
You're probably well aware that Campagnolo designs their Super Record group to the specifications of the most discerning riders in the world. Harnessing this attention to detail for the disc-equipped crowd of professional cyclists, the Super Record 11 Rear Derailleur accommodates the slightly longer throws of your rear derailleur paired with a disc-specific wheelset. This disc-friendly redesign comes by no accident, accompanying the launch of Campagnolo's Ergopower H11 Disc Brakes. Besides its disc-friendly redesign, this Super Record 11 Rear Derailleur retains the same design as the previous Super Record, meaning you'll reap the benefits of a carbon fiber parallelogram and cage, alongside titanium hardware for maximum weight savings without sacrificing one bit of strength. The polymer body is highly resistant to damage in the event of a crash while remaining impressively lightweight. Ceramic ball bearings drastically reduce friction for the smoothest possible shifts throughout the entire gear range. As if that's not enough, Campy's Ultra-Shift geometry ensures buttery-smooth shifts by lessening friction when you're shifting into gears under heavy loads.

If you're running a Campagnolo 11-Speed chain, you'll likely never remove it from your bike, that is, unless you're a fastidious bike cleaner or it's at the end point of its service life. Either way, 11-Speed Campagnolo chain removal is rote and any old chain tool can be used to perform this mundane task. On the other hand, installation of the 11-Speed chain is where you must take care to follow Campagnolo's specific instructions to ensure proper function and durability. This 11-Speed Ultra Link Chain Pin is required as is a chain tool to press the rivet and a peening tool to deform the leading end of the rivet once the pilot has been snapped off. Campagnolo's UT-CN300 Chain Tool will do both jobs without even breaking a sweat on its pro-quality finish. But if you already have a quality chain tool such as Park's CT-4, all you'll need is Park's CT-11 peening tool to perform this crucial, last step.

Clement PDX Tire - Clincher Clement PDX Tire - Clincher
Clement's PDX Clincher Tire has one of the most demanding job descriptions in cyclocrossery: Must love mud without sacrificing speed while maintaining a gap on hardpack. Fortunately, it's also got the perfect resume for meeting those requirements. Since it's a clincher, this PDX loses the ride quality battle with the tubular model; however, it does drop a few grams and is also a helluva lot more convenient and economical. While it won't match the peerless feel of tubs, the clincher version does have the same sidewall reinforcement and, most importantly, that signature PDX tread pattern. With taller, more widely spaced knobs than Clement's revered, all-conditions MXP, the PDX has its focus on looser, wetter courses -- it is, after all, named after the airport code for Portland, OR, a city whose 'cross scene is as healthy as her courses are notoriously nasty. The semi-connected center rib provides just enough of a rotor to keep things straight in the muck and reduce rolling resistance when you hit the pavement or hardpack. The tire's real star is the shoulder, where siped, square-edged knobs bite aggressively throughout the arc of sloppy turns and when the tire sinks into softer earth.

Clement Strada LGG 120 TPI Tire - Clincher Clement Strada LGG 120 TPI Tire - Clincher
When we first heard the claim that the Strada LGG 120 TPI Tire was designed with inspiration from the Criterium Seta, we were skeptical. But this claim comes straight from Clement itself, who continues to be the sexiest name in industrially produced tires, so we were willing to give it some credence. Then we rode the tires, and we realized that -- though the Criterium Seta remains the unattainable Excalibur of tires today -- much of its DNA is present in the supple, puncture-resistant Strada LGG. This being Clement, we're obliged to note that the tire's LGG initialism is a nod to the airport code for Liege. We can't ever hear or read about that city without mentally appending -Bastogne-Liege to its name. The oldest of the classics, La Doyenne has been held rain or shine (or, occasionally, snow -- check out the 1980 edition were Hinault dropped a huge, badger-shaped hammer on the proceedings) with the obligatory interruption for WWI over 100 times now, so it's only fitting that the Strada LGG be able to hold fast in all springtime conditions. The tire's dual-compound construction situates material with a durometer rating of 70a on the center strip and 60a at the shoulders. This means that the confident road feel of Clement's classic chevron pattern is complemented by a fast-rolling, efficient center and tacky shoulders, maximizing speed on the flats and allowing more confident cornering.

Though the cycling industry is prone to radical self-reinvention every few years, one thing remains a welcome constant: the supple ride quality of Clement tires. The Strada LGG 60 TPI Clincher Tire lives up to that reputation, albeit with a lower TPI than its more expensive LGG 120 counterpart. The lower TPI means the LGG 60 does take a hit in the suppleness department, but it makes up for it with a longer wear life and more puncture resistance. This being Clement, we're obliged to note that the tire's LGG initialism is a nod to the airport code for Liege. We can't ever hear or read about that city without mentally appending -Bastogne-Liege to its name. The oldest of the classics, La Doyenne has been held rain or shine (or, occasionally, snow -- check out the unforgiving 2016 edition or the 1980 edition where Hinault dropped a huge, badger-shaped hammer on the proceedings) over 100 times now, and the Strada LGG's mix of a slightly textured center strip and Clement's shoulder chevrons helps maintain grip in unpredictable spring time conditions. The 60 TPI model features a single compound compared to the LGG 120's dual-compound construction. Instead of the latter's softer shoulders, the LGG 60 uses a single, efficiently rolling compound throughout. Using the harder material on the shoulders also adds an additional boost to the tire's longevity, and the addition of a puncture-resistant belt helps fend off ride-ending debris.

Cush Core Tire Insert Set Cush Core Tire Insert Set
We dream of a future where the grass is green, the dirt is tacky, and we never get flat tires. Thankfully, we're not the only ones, which is why the engineers at Cush Core have been putting their all into designing a tire insert that far surpasses yester year's attempted quick fixes, and even goes beyond to provide suspension of its own, inside of your tire, for a plusher, more supportive ride of the future. The Cush Core Tire Insert Set might be a dream come true for riders who have blown countless tires or cracked rims on rough rides, designed to mount inside of mountain bike tires to divide the inner volume in half, protecting your rim with dense foam that reduces vibration and adds lateral stability to your tire. What makes the Cush Core so ideal is that it doesn't only take care of pinch-flats and protect your rim, but it actually improves the supple comfort of your ride by working as an inner-tire suspension system. This is achieved by filling half of your tire's volume with foam that dampens vibrations, while the remaining volume of your tire works as an air spring, effectively responding to blow and chatter like an extension of your bike's suspension, soaking up turbulent forces for a smoother ride. This reduces lateral vibrations by 77%, longitudinal vibrations by 58% and even vertical impact by 50%. While, naturally, adding an insert to your tire will increase its weight, the Cush Core manages to reduce rolling resistance of your wheel, so despite a bit of additional rotational weight, the added increased lateral stiffness works to keep your wheeling better than before. The Cush Core Tire Insert Set comes along with its own valves, which Cush Core recommends swapping to when you add your inserts to your wheel, as they make adjusting air pressure and adding tire sealant easier than with a standard tubeless valve. Cush Core Inserts are easy to maintain once you've mounted them, but there is a bit of a learning curve to installing them, as they involve s...

DT Swiss PR 1400 Dicut Oxic Road Wheel - Tubeless DT Swiss PR 1400 Dicut Oxic Road Wheel - Tubeless
In a wheelset world comprising all manner of rim depths, suspect materials, proprietary hubs, and disc brake compatibility issues, DT Swiss' tubeless-ready PR 1400 Dicut Oxic Road Wheels are a refreshingly simple, durable, and reliable option. They also prove that the low-profile alloy rim is far from obsolete. These are serious wheels for serious road training and even racing, especially if you're not into the parachute effect of 60mm carbon hoops in any yaw angle greater than 5 degrees. Okay. So we weren't totally honest in the above paragraph. The PR 1400 wheels do feature a new material. And proprietary hubs. But those are both plusses, not minuses. The material is DT's Oxic coating, a ceramic finish that's similar to what we've seen from other brands with one big caveat: DT Swiss assures us that the brake track won't strip down to shiny alloy during the normal lifespan of the wheel. The stuff is hard enough to stand up to brake pads, road grit, and road grit trapped under the brake pads. Other than that, Oxic provides the same responsive braking that you'd expect Since the whole rim is covered in the stuff, that guarantee of a color-fast finish extends throughout. It won't fade from long hours spent in the sun--which, frankly, is the point of a wheelset. The other admission, about the proprietary hubs, is also a definite plus. We've all either built or fantasized about building a custom set of hoops, and DT Swiss' Star Ratchet freehub is one of only two models we'd consider anchoring a rear rim to. In order to maintain the wheelset's stealth, matches-any-frame aesthetics, the hubs aren't branded 240s, but they essentially have the same internals. While other brands skimp on the hubs and rely on rim bling to sell their wheels, DT Swiss makes the hub the focal point. Finally, a note on stiffness and weight. The rims are asymmetrical, so they take into account the imbalanced nature of force in a system with a drive and a non-drive side. A claimed set weight ...

Effetto Mariposa understands that different adhesion is required for both the rim and tube, which is why they implemented a double-sided, application-specific design. One side is semi-structural and removable for the rim, where adhesion is guaranteed by industrial-grade acrylic glue that, when removing the tubular, the acrylic glue stays on the tape, not on the rim. Then, the tubular side is permanent thanks to a 1mm-thick layer of permanent glue developed for underwater applications, which moves and spreads when the tubular is first inflated to ensure optimal contact with any tubular base tape geometry.

ENVE Gravel Road Fork ENVE Gravel Road Fork
ENVE created the Gravel Road Fork to meet the needs of all-road adventurers wanting to break free from the constricted guidelines of road and cyclocross-specific fork options. With clean, flat-mount disc anchors, ample tire clearance, and compatibility with ENVE's separately sold carbon fiber fender, this fork is more than ready to tackle all the gravel, cobbles, and otherwise rough-surfaced roads you can find in any weather conditions. ENVE opts for a 12mm thru-axle with this fork to increase stability and stiffness compared to forks with quick-release dropouts. This serves to improve braking and front end tracking for a more responsive and confident ride on everything from sweeping, autumnal descents to spring showers on a gravel fire road. As an added bonus, the thru-axle system means the axle only has one place to sit, eliminating the power-sucking and annoyingly noisy rotor rub that so often plagues quick release systems should a few specks of gravel dust work their way into the dropout. Never one to ignore durability and weight issues, ENVE fashions the entire fork as a whole--including the steerer tube. This one-piece construction not only results in exceptionally clean lines, but allows for uninterrupted carbon fiber layering which increases strength while also reducing weight due to the lack of a need for extra reinforcement around junction points. You can ride with confidence that this fork will provide a light, snappy ride for miles and miles over the years. ENVE understands that gravel and all-road adventures often require a beefier tire than your standard 32mm cross skinnies, so it constructs the Gravel Road Fork to accommodate tires up to 35mm wide for some extra cushion and traction over loose and bumpy terrain. You can run those narrower nibs on smoother days, and rest assured the clearance is there when you need to bring out the burly treads.

ENVE SES 2.2 Wheelset - Clincher ENVE SES 2.2 Wheelset - Clincher
ENVE's SES 2. 2 Clincher Wheelset had quite a high profile debut at this year's Tour. Just ask MTN-Qhubeka's Teklehaimanot, who became the first black African to start the Tour and, in his debut at the race, spent a handful of stages resplendent in the polka-dot jersey. ENVE built these featherweight wheels specifically for the MTN-Qhubeka p/b Samsung Team to use while climbing the Tour's formidable peaks, and they're now available for the rest of us to use as we ride for PR's on our most challenging ascents. Mountain roads bring with them a special set of specifications and necessary robustness in braking capabilities. ENVE tackles those requirements head-on with a brand-new, molded-in, textured brake surface and new, black brake pads for a claimed 30% improvement in braking performance over ENVE's previous models. The new combination also makes for more consistent braking across both wet and dry conditions. When you're sweeping through switchbacks, you can trust the braking surface to do what it's supposed to do: get you through the descent on two wheels. While designing the SES 2. 2, ENVE's primary focus was on stiffness and low weight -- essential qualities while pedaling up steep grades. Rather than create two separate rim profiles for the front and rear as it does in the rest of the SES line, ENVE chose to keep the 2. 0 rim dimensions uniform. This means 25mm of depth and 27mm of external width across both wheels. They're specifically made to be used with on-trend 25mm tires for a smooth, forgiving, and more efficient ride. Though the 2. 2 has a different profile than its SES siblings, it has the same solid construction and attention to detail we expect from ENVE. ENVE wheels enjoy the reputation of having one of the highest strength-to-weight ratios in the industry because of a jealously guarded process of molding in-spoke holes, nipple seats, and valve stem holes rather than drilling them after the fact.

Built specifically to help the team conquer the giant mountains of The Tour, these featherweight wheels are now available to all of us whether we're attacking the European peloton or trying to eke out those last few seconds to conquer that coveted local KOM. Mountain roads bring with them a special set of specifications and necessary robustness in braking capabilities. ENVE tackles those requirements head-on with a brand-new, molded-in, textured brake surface paired with the new ENVE black brake pads for a claimed 30% improvement in braking performance over ENVE's previous models. The new combination also makes for more consistent braking across both wet and dry conditions. When you're dropping through switchbacks into an unexpected thunderstorm, it's reassuring to know you can trust the braking surface to do what it's supposed to do and get you to the valley floor safely, rubber side-down. In designing the 2. 2, ENVE shifts the focus slightly away from pure drag reduction with a laser-focused lock on weight reduction to make this a stiff, featherweight climber to fly up the mountains. In contrast to the rest of ENVE's SES line of wheels, which feature differing rim profiles for the front and rear, the 2. 2 maintains the same 25mm depth and 27mm external rim width across both wheels specifically designed to house on-trend 25mm tires for a smooth, forgiving, and more efficiently rolling ride across the miles. Even with the 2. 2 diverging slightly from its...

ENVE SES 2.2 Wheelset with ENVE Hubs - Clincher ENVE SES 2.2 Wheelset with ENVE Hubs - Clincher
The rims on ENVE's SES 2. 2 Clincher Wheelset with ENVE Hubs had a grand debut this summer atop the dizzyingly high peaks of the Tour on the frames of the MTN-Qhubeka team. Cummings earned the team its first-ever stage win aboard these rims, and they're now available for the rest of us to use as we conquer steep grades and the long, winding roads of our favorite local climbs. There is one key difference between what Cummings rode and this model, though. On Cummings' wheels, you can clearly see the telltale red of DT Swiss 240 hubs instead of the lighter, stiffer, carbon hubs ENVE has added here. Mountain roads place heavy demands a wheel's braking capabilities, and ENVE ensured the shallow 2. 2 rims would be more than ready to take on those demands by developing a new, molded-in textured brake surface. Paired with the new ENVE black brake pads, the brake track claims to improve performance by 30% over previous ENVE models. This new system addresses the challenges of braking in both wet and dry conditions, adding reassuring consistency on the days you get caught in a surprise rain shower on a winding, narrow descent. In a departure from the rest of the SES line, ENVE chose to keep the depth and external rim width the same for each wheel. We assume this is because, at just 25mm deep, the aerodynamic gains of fiddling with respective depths would be minimal at best. Instead the 2. 2s' 25mm depth and 27mm external rim width work together to achieve an ideal balance of stiffness and low weight that make these wheels capable featherweight climbing machines. Pair their generous width with of-the-moment 25mm tires for lower rolling resistance, plush comfort, and more confident cornering on the way back down. ENVE wheels are known for having one of the highest strength-to-weight ratios in the industry, and the 2. 2's are shaped using the same highly regarded Smart construction system as the rest of its wheels to ensure their stability and reliability.

ENVE SES 2.2 Wheelset with ENVE Hubs - Tubular ENVE SES 2.2 Wheelset with ENVE Hubs - Tubular
The ENVE SES 2. 2 wheelset, built feather-light to fly up the mountains of the Tour, was the biggest news of the climbing wheel world this year. Now laced with ENVE's new carbon hubs, the SES 2. 2 Tubular Wheelset with ENVE Hubs is available to us all whether we're conquering our favorite local passes or lining up with the pro peloton. Mountain roads bring with them a special set of specifications and necessary robustness in braking capabilities. ENVE tackles those requirements head-on with a brand-new, molded-in, textured brake surface and new, black brake pads for a claimed 30% improvement in braking performance over ENVE's previous models. The new combination also makes for more consistent braking across both wet and dry conditions. When you're sweeping through switchbacks, you can trust the braking surface to do what it's supposed to do: get you through the descent on two wheels. While designing the SES 2. 2, ENVE's primary focus was on stiffness and low weight -- essential qualities while pedaling up steep grades. Rather than create two separate rim profiles for the front and rear as it does in the rest of the SES line, ENVE chose to keep the 2. 0 rim dimensions uniform. This means 25mm of depth and 27mm of external width across both wheels. They're specifically made to be used with on-trend 25mm tires for a smooth, forgiving, and more efficient ride. Though the 2. 2 has a different profile than its SES siblings, it has the same solid construction and attention to detail we expect from ENVE. ENVE wheels enjoy the reputation of having one of the highest strength-to-weight ratios in the industry because of a jealously guarded process of molding in-spoke holes, nipple seats, and valve stem holes rather than drilling them after the fact. ENVE routes the carbon fibers around each hole to maintain continuous fiber integrity, which results in both increased rim rigidity and lower weight. This system facilitates higher, more uniform spoke tension than standard bl...

ENVE SES 3.4 Carbon DT Swiss 240 Wheelset - Clincher ENVE SES 3.4 Carbon DT Swiss 240 Wheelset - Clincher
ENVE's SES 3. 4 Carbon Clincher Road Wheelset with DT Swiss 240 Hubs has earned a reputation as one of the more versatile wheelsets available with its balance of aerodynamics and lightweight climbing ability, and it's back for 2017 with a few tweaks that look to make it even better. This year sees the 3. 4 drop some weight, gain tubeless compatibility, and sit with a wider stance and slightly different rim depth pairing than its predecessor. The takeaway from all of these changes is increased stability in the crosswinds, snappier handling, and a smoother ride. The new rim profile features a mammoth 21mm internal width for both front and rear, quite a bit wider than the previous 3. 4's 18. 5mm front and 16. 5mm rear combination. ENVE says this wide stance optimizes aerodynamics with a 25mm tire while also boosting tire volume, which in turn allows lower tire pressure for a smoother, more efficient ride. Swapping the tubes for tubeless will take full advantage of the new rim width by reducing pinch flat risk while further reducing pressure and rolling resistance. On the road, this makes for a nearly perfect blend of speed and comfort. The rim depth continues ENVE's commitment to a shallower front and deeper rear pairing, but brings the numbers closer together with the front rim gaining 3mm to 38mm in depth and the rear losing 3mm to clock in at 42mm in depth. ENVE claims that this new pairing improves handling and stability in windy conditions without sacrificing any aerodynamics, which means you'll be riding smooth instead of wrestling with the wind at speed. At the brake track, the 3. 4 carries over 2016's in-molded Gen 2 brake surface, which offers 30% stronger stopping power and the ability to retain 95% of its braking power when being used in wet conditions. As with all its SES wheels, ENVE uses its most sophisticated technology and engineering techniques to create this fast, stiff, and aerodynamic wheelset. The ENVE SES series boasts the highest strength-t...

The hubs harness ENVE's renowned engineering and feature DT Swiss' star ratchet internals for lightning fast engagement and silky smooth speed, while the versatile 3. 4 rim gets some updates for 2017. Gaining tubeless compatibility and a wider profile, the 3. 4's updated rim shape pushes its predecessor's famed versatility even further with increased stability, more confident handling, and an overall faster, smoother ride. The new rim profile features a mammoth 21mm internal rim width for both front and rear, dwarfing the previous 3. 4's 18. 5mm front and 16. 5mm rear combination. ENVE says this wide stance optimizes aerodynamics with a 25mm tire while also boosting tire volume, which in turn allows lower tire pressure for a smoother, more efficient ride. We'd also happily run even wider tires for an extra dose of plush, and swapping the tubes for tubeless will take full advantage of the new rim width by reducing pinch flat risk while further reducing pressure and rolling resistance. The rim depth continues ENVE's commitment to a shallower front and deeper rear rim pairing, but brings the numbers closer together with the front rim gaining 3mm to a 38mm depth and the rear dropping 3mm to land at a 42mm depth compared to the previous rim profile. ENVE claims that this new combination improves handling and stability in variable wind conditions without sacrificing any aerodynamics, which means you'll be riding smooth instead of wrestling to keep your bike in line at speed.

ENVE SES 4.5 AR Disc Wheelset - Tubular - DT Swiss 240 Hubs ENVE SES 4.5 AR Disc Wheelset - Tubular - DT Swiss 240 Hubs
When its sponsored WorldTour team asked for a wheelset that could run the beefy tires needed for grueling European cobbles while still boasting a distinct aerodynamic advantage when things smooth out, the ENVE engineers got creative. With a moderately dished profile designed around a 28-30mm tire volume instead of the usual 23-25mm, the ENVE SES 4. 5 AR Disc Tubular Wheelset with DT Swiss 240 hubs is the ultimate all-around racing wheelset when the pavement turns choppy and race promoters decide fire roads are a fun way to liven up a road race course.The SES 4. 5 AR isn't just a wider version of its namesake SES 4. 5, as ENVE engineers created a whole new carbon layup to make the most out of the 4. 5 ARs wide, 25mm internal rim width, disc specific hub pairing, and intended all-road utility. ENVE understandably guards the specifics of its layups closely, but if its other proven rim designs are any indicator, this wheelset is sure to withstand all manner of aging chipseal, hard packed dirt, and crack-strewn pavement with sprightly speed and stability. Even with all those changes, the 4. 5 AR sees a continuation of ENVE's now signature shallow front and deeper rear wheel pairings, featuring a 49mm front and 55mm rear depth to comingle with its SES 4. 5 sibling in the sweet spot between the more climbing oriented 3. 4 and TT leaning 6. 7 wheelsets. With wind tunnel and real world testing to back up claims that these wheels will hold steady in a wide variety of wind conditions, the 4. 5 ARs take the 4. 5s claim of being the all-rounder wheel of choice for riders across the world to a whole new level.While shaping and dimensions are the brand's calling card, ENVE's obsessively clean construction also sets it apart from the herd of carbon competitors.

ENVE SES 4.5 AR Disc Wheelset with Chris King R45 Hubs - Clincher ENVE SES 4.5 AR Disc Wheelset with Chris King R45 Hubs - Clincher
When that unplanned route deviation is rewarded with sweeping canyon views and open road for days, you don't want to turn around just because the surface turns less than pristine. Whether it's dirt, gravel, or ancient, cracking pavement, the ENVE SES 4. 5 AR Disc Clincher Wheelset with Chris King R45 Hubs lets you push onward and upward to roads much less traveled. While this wheelset shares much of its name with ENVE's SES 4. 5, the SES 4. 5 AR isn't just a wider version of its namesake. The impetus of the 4. 5 AR was originally driven by the unique challenges of European cobbles and a desire to run big tires without the associated decreases in aerodynamics that happens when pairing them with standard width road rims. ENVE engineers created a whole new carbon layup and rim shape designed to pair with 28-30mm tires, maintain aerodynamics, and make the most out of the 4. 5 AR's wide, 25mm internal rim width, disc specific hub pairing, and intended all-road utility. ENVE further tweaks the design with the inclusion of a hookless bead design, inspired by its mountain rims, which increases tubeless reliability and results in a clean tire to rim interaction. Even with all those changes, the 4. 5 AR sees a continuation of ENVE's now signature shallow front and deeper rear wheel pairings. The 4. 5 AR features a 49mm front and 55mm rear depth to comingle with its SES 4. 5 sibling in the sweet spot between the 3. 4 and TT-leaning 6. 7 wheelsets.

ENVE SES 4.5 Carbon Clincher Road Wheelset - Chris King R45 Hubs ENVE SES 4.5 Carbon Clincher Road Wheelset - Chris King R45 Hubs
When ENVE introduced the first generation of its SES 4. 5, it effectively bridged the divide between the SES line's discipline-specific wheels -- the featherweight, climb-ready 3. 4 and the aerodynamic missile 6. 7 -- to offer one do-it-all set of carbon hoops. ENVE's carbon craftsmen in Northern Utah created the SES 4. 5 Carbon Clincher Wheelset with Chris King R45 Hubs to be an all-around training and racing option, capable of slicing through the wind on a flat, fast tri course or powering a road ride through rolling climbs and wide, sweeping descents without getting knocked around by the wind. For 2016, ENVE is updating that versatile platform with the Gen 2 brake track to give the SES 4. 5s even more reliable stopping power than before. Of course, ENVE built its name on going, not stopping, and that involves reducing lateral forces and developing aerodynamic rims that cut drag while displaying consistent stability across a wide range of yaw angles. Its engineers based the rim's shape around depth requirements, then molded the front and rear rims to different dimensions to account for their individual behaviors on the bike. The result is a front wheel measuring 48mm deep and 27m wide and a deeper, slimmer rear wheel shaped to 56mm deep and 25. 5mm wide. This design allows the front wheel to provide stability while the rear wheel, tucked away from the wind, takes advantage of its position's relative stability to deliver significant aerodynamic gains. As mentioned above, ENVE graces the latest SES 4. 5 with a new brake track, the Gen 2. ENVE first introduced the new brake track on the SES 2. 2, and it claims the textured surface provides a 30% increase in power and nearly equal stopping in wet and dry conditions. Aside from the new brake track, ENVE's meticulous rim construction remains reassuringly static. It still features carbon fiber carefully wrapped around a removable bladder and individually routed around each hole for a completely intact, precise design...

ENVE wraps carbon fiber continuously around a removable bladder to construct the rims, routing the fibers around each hole for a completely intact, precise design that boasts the highest claimed strength-to-weight ratio on the market. As an added step, ENVE removes the bladder for a final product that's both lighter and more structurally sound than rims that remain packed with molding material. While that extra step of removing the bladder adds time and expense to the manufacturing process, the end result is worth it.The 4. 5s come laced to DT Swiss' venerable 240 hubs, complete with their incredibly satisfying star ratchet system and indisputable durability. We also think it's worth noting that the 4. 5s' generous interior widths grant your tires a lower rolling resistance at a lower PSI, so you can enjoy a ride that's simultaneously faster and more comfortable.

We're used to seeing disc-equipped wheels with rim brake tracks stealthily covered with strategic stickering as companies push to offer disc wheelsets without reinventing their rim profiles. ENVE, being the innovative company that it is, turns that practice on its head with the disc-specific rim design on its new SES 5. 6 Disc Clincher Wheelset. This all-new rim features a slight curve where a rim brake track would normally sit for resulting claims of better airflow between the tire and rim. In turn, this new shaping also comes with claims of increased stability in both steady and swirling wind conditions for confident handling and predictable cornering. Designed with the current trends towards larger volume road tires in mind and compatible with road tubeless or traditional clincher setups, this wheelset might just be the only set of hoops you'll need to tackle all your road adventures. As with the rest of ENVE's SES line, the 5. 6 rims aren't subjected to static, arbitrary NACA shapes. Instead, the engineers let each wheel's depth requirements dictate the ideal dimensions in order to reduce lateral forces and increase aerodynamic benefits across a wide range of yaw angles. This approach is apparent in everything from the rim's rounded inner face to the different dimensions and disc-specific shapes of the front and rear wheels. SES takes the shallower, more stable front wheel and deep, aerodynamic rear wheel philosophy to its logical extreme. As the SES name implies, these wheels are built using the Smart ENVE System to create a rim that is as strong and stable as it is aerodynamic. ENVE wheels enjoy the reputation of having one of the highest strength-to-weight ratios in the industry because of a jealously guarded process of molding in-spoke holes, nipple seats, and valve stem holes rather than drilling them after the fact.

When laced to one of our favorite hub models, DT Swiss' 240s, this system facilitates higher, more uniform spoke tension than standard bladder molding. ENVE is also able to remove the inner bladder once the molding process is complete, which results in a lower overall weight than processes that leave the bladder in place. This is a lengthy and costly extra step, but it results in a wheel that is perfectly tensioned and significantly lighter than it would be were the bladder left inside.

ENVE SES Aero TT Handlebar ENVE SES Aero TT Handlebar
Carbon fiber is an invariably versatile material. In fact, there are dozens of ways to design a similar laminate. But with carbon, the process is as critical as the outcome. The Enve engineers' design with the knowledge that a strong final product is the result of an innovative design process -- from the inception of the idea to the laying of the fibers, Enve's entire process is founded upon this principle. The Enve SES Aerobars follow suit and the resulting bar is not only beautiful to look at, it's fast. One of the more noticeable marks of Enve components is that they have no coating, paint, or finish. The bar you receive is essentially naked. If you've spent as much time staring at carbon components as we have, you'll notice tiny imperfections in carbon, and Enve chooses to not hide these. Carbon is, after all, a series of carbon atoms that have been bonded together in crystals to form very fine filaments. These filaments are about 5-10 microns in width. The fibers are aligned parallel to the long axis of the fiber and this gives it a very high strength to volume ratio. So essentially, your carbon aerobar is thousands of tiny threads wound together with a resin and molded into the final form. Its Smart Enve System (SES), is the brainchild of aero-engineering Simon Smart and Enve working together to create the lightest, strongest carbon components on the market.Enve's philosophy also means designing products that are available and usable by any rider, no matter what their preferred position while in aerobars. The SES Aero Bar, features flexibility to accommodate extremely low and aggressive positions and well as the higher, wider arm positions that seem to be favored by professional time trial specialists and as well as track pursuit specialists. It features virtually unlimited adjustability of elbow pads and aero extensions on a 40cm base bar.

One look at the Fabric ALM Ultimate Saddle and you'll know it's unlike any saddle you've ever tried. ALM stands for Additive Layer Manufacturing -- the prototype was developed using 3D printing. This technique allowed Fabric to create a saddle that would have previously been impossible to manufacture. The rail and base of the ALM saddle are carbon fiber. This provides a lightweight chassis. The organic shape of the saddle lends much more than aesthetics. Because of their unique shape and placement, the rails work like leaf springs to suspend the rider and absorb vibration and road shock. Fabric uses a high-density polyurethane foam for padding and vibration-absorption. A waterproof microfiber shell is vacuum-bonded in place to finish the ALM. Please note: rider weight is limited to 100kg (220lbs).

FOX Racing Shox 32 Float SC AX 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Fork FOX Racing Shox 32 Float SC AX 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Fork
Overhaul your rigid gravel fork with the bump-smoothing travel of the FOX 32 Float SC AS 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Fork. An experimental product of FOX's Open Project, the 32 Float Step Cast Adventure Cross (AX) fork resulted from FOX employees retrofitting their existing 32 Float Step Cast Forks down to 40 millimeters of travel by cutting down the existing air spring. Resoundingly positive impressions on gravel roads and long tours inspired FOX to produce this suspension fork for the gravel market. Since this idea came a bit late to the table, FOX wasn't able to design a purpose-built gravel fork from the ground up, meaning this fork isn't fully compatible with every gravel or cross bike on the market. That being said, it's still an impressive end product that's sure to delight the adventurous gravel rider and touring enthusiast seeking more plushness than their rigid fork affords. 40 millimeters of travel absorbs small bumps while you're grinding down gravel roads and exploring light-duty singletrack. The Float air spring is upgraded with EVOL technology for heightened sensitivity to small bumps and road surface irregularities. Its Fit4 damper features 3-position adjust, giving you the ability to switch between Open, Medium, and Firm settings. The Open mode affords 22 clicks of low-compression adjust for fine-tuning its feel to your needs and local terrain, with the Firm mode providing a practical lockout with a blow-off that prevents damage if you hit a deeper pothole.

FSA Energy Road New Ergo Handlebar FSA Energy Road New Ergo Handlebar
The FSA Energy Road New Ergo Handlebar is a rock-solid but lightweight choice for the road rider or cyclocross rider looking to upgrade to a more ergonomic bar. Its sharp style and comfortable shape will agree with almost any bike, and any athlete. The New Ergo Energy handlebar is made from double-butted, tapered, shot-peened, and anodized aluminum. The center clamping section is purposely wide, at 120mm, so that you'll be able to clamp on accessories, like aero bars. FSA championed the concept of the wing-style handlebar years ago, and it finds its way here. They provided riders with the first-ever alternative to the traditional round shape of bar tops. The flattened cross section nicely molded to the shape of loose fists -- exactly what many of us have when we climb with our hands on the tops. With a 150mm drop and 80mm reach with round drops, the New Ergo shape is a bit deeper than the Compact Energy Handlebar shape, allowing you to get lower and more aggressive, which is something racers will especially appreciate. The FSA Energy Road New Ergo Handlebar comes in a 31. 8mm clamp only and is available in 40cm, 42cm, and 44cm widths, measured center-to-center. It's available only in the color Black.

FSA Gossamer Pro 386EVO ABS Adventure Crankset FSA Gossamer Pro 386EVO ABS Adventure Crankset
For years, we've been jealous of the European cycling-scape. Cobblestones, Flemish hellingen, windy Dutch coastal roads--those are where cycling began. (Okay, maybe not the Dutch coastal wind.) The advent of gravel bikes has given us a different attitude, though, and FSA's Gossamer Pro 386EVO ABS Adventure Crankset tailors gearing to exploring the unique cycling gems on this side of the pond: dirt roads, graded gravel, and even light singletrack. Our local b-roads may not have the historical significance of the Carrefour de l'Arbre, but we don't care. Comparing cycling history (hell, any history) across the pond will always be a losing affair for we Yanks, so let the Euros have their tradition, their past, and their sepia photographs--we'll take the fun of gravel touring in the present moment any day. The Gossamer's Adventure model is eager for those moments, too. FSA kits it with a 48/32t gear combination that's well-suited to the style of riding that gravel bikes and touring setups have inspired: the long haul across Kansas gravel, the slow grind through a PNW forest, the bike path that lets out onto a singletrack trail network. Though its gearing recommends it for gravel riding, the crank has the same cold-forged 6061 alloy crankarms CNC-machined 7075 chainrings as its road-specific counterpart. The Gossamer Pro Compact has a 110mm bolt circle. The rings attach to the five-arm alloy spider via T-30 Torx internal wrenching alloy fasteners. Though more difficult to produce, the Torx interface ensures strip-free, proper torquing of the hardware. A tight fit and snug fasteners means less power-robbing flex and decreased chance for strange creaking noises to develop, so you'll spend more time enjoying the soft hum of a well-tuned drivetrain and the ambient sounds of whatever bucolic landscape you find yourself in. As with most of FSA's cranksets, the Gossamer Pro is built to the 386EVO standard, whose modularity makes it every frame's best friend. It's got the dim...

FSA Gossamer Wing Compact FSA Gossamer Wing Compact
FSA's Gossamer Wing Compact handlebar may be the most versatile offering in the manufacturer's extensive catalog of drop bars, combining lightweight with efficiency and a relatively low price point. It's made of double-butted 6066 alloy that's been shot-peened, which is a process that shows up most often in the aerospace industry. Shot-peening involves firing ceramic pellets at the metal in order to increase corrosion and fatigue resistance by up to 1,000 times. This means that it's strong enough to safeguard your life on a transatlantic flight or your aspirations on a course as punishing as the stones of Roubaix, where the alloy Gossamer line has enjoyed the top step of the podium. The moderate 125 millimeter drop and 80 millimeter reach put these handlebars in the realm of short and shallow. The drops are also angled by four degrees in order to mimic the natural position of your wrists when you're in them. It's a subtle difference from parallel drops, but one that becomes apparent the longer that your ride goes on. The clamping point balloons up to 31. 8 millimeters to maximize stiffness at the point of power transfer while keeping the overall weight down.

FSA SL-K Road Compact Handlebar FSA SL-K Road Compact Handlebar
In the rush to get the best technology to the most likely race-bike buyers, some manufacturers have a tendency to forget that people, like bicycles, come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. Fortunately, the folks at FSA haven't forgotten. The FSA SL-K Road Compact handlebar combines race-ready unidirectional carbon fiber construction, a forgiving, shallow design, and four different sizes (including extra-narrow) to bring pro-level performance to all of us.FSA's SL-K Compact Handlebar is made from a blend of unidirectional carbon fiber and Kevlar. Formed in a continuous, one-piece construction, the reinforced carbon design provides a heightened rigidity for explosive sprints and predictable handling. Additionally, the carbon weave dampens road vibration while the Kevlar offers durable strength that reduces material fatigue. The engineered result is simple -- the S-LK Carbon handlebar will remain stiffer, longer. These attributes have been further accentuated by the implementation of a double-width single cable groove along the bar. The SL-K's thicker construction also greatly increases its resistance to fatigue.The S-LK Compact Carbon features reinforced and textured clamping areas for the attachment of the levers and stem. This treatment prevents slippage, and helps to maintain the life of the bars. FSA has also widened the center section to 120mm in order to allow the addition of clip-on aero extensions or any combination of accessories. To achieve an agreeable shape, fit for long days in the drops or on the hoods, FSA has designed the S-LK Compact with a moderate 125mm drop, 80mm reach, and 2 degree outward bend. And to ensure a consistent fit and ride quality for every rider, these dimensions vary in scale by each of the three widths available.

Fulcrum Racing 5 DB Wheelset - Clincher Fulcrum Racing 5 DB Wheelset - Clincher
Tuck those deep-dish carbon 'cross racing tubulars safely away in the closet and outfit your favorite mud-shedding steed for salty winter base miles with the Fulcrum Racing 5 DB Clincher Wheelset. Built to mesh perfectly with your disc-brake equipped frame, these wheels house tires ranging from 25mm to 32mm to tackle long hours on the pavement, hardpack dirt roads, or gravel adventures with smooth durability. Fulcrum builds the Racing 5 DB with 27. 5mm-deep aluminum rims. They're shallow enough to minimize rotational weight for fast spin-up when the traffic light turns green while still garnering a bit of aerodynamic advantage while grinding out interval sets. Unlike a full carbon wheel, which may feel a bit stiff for everyday training and a bit costly to risk in the winter muck, aluminum provides more radial give between the rough road and your body to smooth out bumps and vibrations. Nonetheless, the Racing 5 DBs get rolling quickly and hold speed well on flats and descents, all of which is aided by the smooth rolling efficiency of Fulcrum's aluminum hubset. These hubs boast oversized aluminum flanges that improve the spokes' bracing angle for a snappier, more responsive ride. A two-to-one spoke lacing pattern on both the front and rear wheel utilizes 14 spokes on the left side and seven on the right to create an exceptionally strong wheel that resists deflection from the load of disc braking forces. As an added bonus, external spoke nipples at the rim make for easy service and maintenance.

Perusing various carbon fiber hoop offerings can quickly spiral into a vortex of sky-high costs and withered hopes after checking your bank account. The Fulcrum Racing Quattro Carbon Clincher Wheelset is here to put an end to that spiral, delivering smooth carbon speed at a significantly lower cost than its similarly profiled counterparts. Fulcrum rims are actually Campagnolo tech in disguise, so the 3Diamant braking surface treatment used on the Racing Quattros is the same as that featured on Campy's legendary Bora line. These wheels address the common issues of poor carbon rim braking to provide powerful stopping in both wet and dry conditions when paired with Fulcrum's carbon-specific brake pads. Fulcrum builds the Racing Quattro with 40mm carbon fiber rims -- just deep enough to slice effortlessly through the air and just shallow enough to snap up to speed and tackle climbs with ease. The depth also lets Campagnolo clandestinely plug the hole in their wheel line between the 35 and 50mm Bora models. Like their more expensive Italian cousins, the rims incorporate Dynamic Balance technology, which is a closely guarded method of laying the carbon opposite the stem valve hole to balance the rim's rotational weight. At the center, Fulcrum laces the Quattro Carbon rims to its silky smooth aluminum hubset. These hubs boast oversized aluminum flanges that serve to improve strength and rigidity for a snappy, responsive ride. A two-to-one spoke lacing pattern on the rear wheel utilizes seven spokes on the left side and 14 on the right to create an exceptionally strong wheel that resists flex under the load of hard gear changes or punchy accelerations.

Utilizing a technology Fulcrum dubs Momag, the Zero Carbon rims feature a uniform upper bridge surface free from holes. This is achieved through a process that sounds maddeningly finicky to us: guiding spoke nipples into place from the valve hole via magnets. It does eliminate the need for the additional holes found in most rims, though, so the tire beds are solid and don't require rim tape or strips. The unbroken surface also increases the rim's durability and stiffness for an enduringly confident ride. To address the issue of braking confidence on carbon rims in varying weather, Fulcrum utilizes its 3Diamant braking surface treatment to provide powerful stopping in both wet and dry conditions when paired with Fulcrum's carbon-specific brake pads. By shaving away imperfections and resin in the braking surface with diamond-tipped tooling, Fulcrum creates a braking surface that allows the brake pads to fully and directly contact the carbon for enhanced braking across ever-changing conditions. Fulcrum builds the Zero Carbon with 30mm carbon fiber rims -- just deep enough to garner some aerodynamic advantage and just shallow enough to snap up to speed and tackle climbs with ease. The rims incorporate Dynamic Balance technology, which is a closely guarded method of tweaking the carbon lay-up opposite the stem valve hole to balance the rim's rotational weight. At the center, Fulcrum laces the Zero Carbon rims to its aluminum hubset with silky smooth ceramic bearings.

HED Ardennes Plus SL Road Wheelset - Clincher HED Ardennes Plus SL Road Wheelset - Clincher
If the tech sheet, marketing copy, and glowing reviews from major publications aren't enough to sell you on the plush, efficient ride of HED's Ardennes Plus SL Road Wheelset, then just head to your local two-wheeled hotspot and count the number of times you see that unmistakable branding roll by on everything from carbon race frames to steel touring machines with wheelbases you can measure in meters. This ubiquity is no accident. Given that it self-styles as Super Light, we'd be remiss not to mention that the Ardennes Plus SL is both light, but not as light as the line-topping Ardennes Black model, which effectively replaced the FR Plus for 2015. But small discrepancies in weight are of little consequence when balanced against the benefits of HED's C2 rim design, which the Plus models take even a step further. Two additional millimeters of width result in even better grip and faster rolling through an improved tire profile. A wider rim puts more of the tire on the road, and that increased contact patch means more grip, especially while cornering. Better yet, by widening the tire's base, more of the sidewall is oriented vertically, and that means that the tire is better able to deform around irregularities in the road surface. So, you'll roll through them, not over them. And just in case you're looking for the fastest rolling setup around, the Plus SL is compatible with tubeless setups, in addition to traditional clincher tires with tubes. The Plus SL wheelset still rolls on the Sonic Black hubs also used on the Black Plus wheels. The front hub features the same carbon fiber hub shell and bonded aluminum flanges as the Black Plus, while the rear hub forgoes the carbon fiber shell in favor of a slightly heavier aluminum version. The rear hub has an external grease port, the spokes are Sapim CX rays, which are forged for added stiffness and bladed to reduce aerodynamic drag.

HED Ardennes SL Disc Brake Wheelset - Tubular HED Ardennes SL Disc Brake Wheelset - Tubular
The Ardennes SL Disc Brake Tubular Wheelset combines the supple ride of tubs with a rim wide enough for all-terrain use and a braking system designed to maintain consistent response and modulation in the conditions that tend to define 'cross racing. It's also the lightest member of HED's big-rim/disc-brake team, replacing the LT model's standard spokes with HED Lite bladed steel spokes. Despite their relatively low weight, the disc brakes and 23mm rims recommend the Ardennes SL Disc Wheelset for adventures whose scope transcends asphalt. Road, gravel, fire roads, 'cross -- with a width like this, the wheelset's only limitations are your legs and imagination. The wide gluing surface lets tubs sit fat, putting a larger tire patch in contact with the ground, improving rolling efficiency in the straights, increasing cornering confidence and grip, and further supplementing the plush, supple feel of tubular tires. They also provide a more constant surface from tire to rim, creating less turbulence and thereby reducing drag. The rims are laced to HED's 545 hubs, whose freehub engagement involves five pawls and 45 teeth. Given this naming convention, the previous model of HED hub -- with three pawls and 30 teeth -- might have been dubbed the 330. Whatever the case, the numbers don't lie; the 545 has almost double the engagement points as its predecessor, which can pay big dividends while clearing obstacles, punching up steep pitches, and accelerating out of corners on cyclocross courses.

HED H3 GT3 Carbon Wheel - Tubular HED H3 GT3 Carbon Wheel - Tubular
With all the compression Lycra and fluo-on-stealth kit that the discipline entails, road cyclists are used to the sneers and general derision of the uninitiated. Triathletes, on the other hand, are beyond it. Compression socks, single-piece tri-suits, aerodynamic helmets -- no kit is taboo, regardless of the strange looks it might get. The race is all that matters, and when every second counts, then HED's tubular H3 GT3 Carbon Wheel is the only obvious answer to the race wheel conundrum, funny looks from non-competitors be damned. The wheelset's outer ring is a tub-compatible 55mm deep section rim that swells to its widest point at 26. 5mm, which is decidedly wider than the regular H3's 19mm. The wider rim feeds seamlessly into three airfoil section spokes, eliminating any transitional ridges between spokes and rim and -- when paired with HED's suggested tire diameter of 21-23mm -- rim and tire in order to reduce drag resistance from all the yaw angles likely to be encountered during a race. The inclusion of HED's Stability Control Technology (SCT) also manages the flow of air from the moment it leaves the leading edge of the tire to the moment it either reattaches to the frame at the down tube or exits into the slipstream, regardless of yaw angle. By controlling the manner of reattachment and detachment, the H3 GT3 prevents stalled air in the wheel's wake, which creates pockets of negative pressure and actually pulls back on the wheel. In the event of crosswinds, SCT works the same magic on lateral forces, providing more predictable handling than true NACA air foil rims with deep dishes and traditional bladed spokes. The GT3 is also finished with an improved brake track for more consistent stopping as you roll into T2.

HED Jet 4 Plus Black Disc Brake Wheelset - Clincher HED Jet 4 Plus Black Disc Brake Wheelset - Clincher
With its combination of HED's stable, bullet-shaped rim cross section and the sweet-spot aerodynamics of a 46mm depth, HED's Jet 4 Plus Black Carbon Disc Brake Wheelset may be the ideal racing wheels for any course. The durability of the aluminum spine/carbon fiber fairing construction and the convenience of clinchers expand the Jet 4's capabilities to include everyday use as a training wheelset, too. Whether racing, training, or sportiving, though, the undeniable quality of disc braking takes the original Jet 4's focus on safe, reliable stopping to whole new levels. While the aluminum rim on Jet wheels originally addressed carbon's poor braking by providing an alloy track, the Jet 4s with disc brakes do away with rim braking altogether. Compared to even the braking surface on HED's Black models, the disc-equipped Black Disc wheels enjoy stopping power that modulates better, grabs with more consistency, and virtually ensures that the Jet 6s will never violently deform because they hit the glass transition temperature as a result of a long, hot descent. While the new road disc technology may be responsible for stopping a cyclist on these wheels, their strongest selling point is definitely the boost they provide while they're going. As you'd expect from rims of this depth, the wheels love to hold speed after they're spun up. HED also knows that faster speeds require a heightened sense of control that's often at odds with aerodynamic rims, so it developed Stability Control Technology (SCT), which reduces lateral forces applied to the rims at 0-15 degrees of yaw. Combined with the relative stability of a sub-50mm fairing, the addition of SCT nets stability that doesn't quite rival a traditional aluminum box section but won't through you around like a true NACA air foil shape. The rims' aerodynamic savings are compounded by a reduction in the rolling resistance because of the Jet 4's 25mm wide C2 rims. C2 rims increase the tire's volume and contact patch for lower ...

Ditto the cross-wind stability granted by the bullet-shaped inner face of the carbon fairing. The disc brake capabilities of these wheels are still something of a novelty on road racing kit, with proponents and detractors pitching their cases on the world's largest cycling stage in Europe. By combining its proven aerodynamic technology with the nascent trend of discs on tarmac, HED helps advance the pro-disc contingent's case that superiority of disc brakes will be the industry's next assumed truth. We've had the opportunity to ride several models of road disc brakes, and we can understand why HED is keen to make this transition. Discs do away with one of our greatest critiques of carbon rims -- the questionable braking -- for stopping power that modulates better, grabs with more consistency, and virtually ensures that the Jet 6s will never violently deform because they hit the glass transition temperature as a result of a long, hot descent. While the new road disc technology may be responsible for stopping a cyclist on these wheels, their strongest selling point is definitely the boost they provide while they're going.

HED Jet 6 Plus Carbon Road Wheelset - Clincher HED Jet 6 Plus Carbon Road Wheelset - Clincher
Wheels of the deep-dish -- greater than 50mm -- variety excel on flat courses, but very often we find ourselves on courses riddled with hills. Now, if they were just long drawn out grades, then any deep-dish would do. But all too often, they are of the brutal switchback variety where drafting is quickly negated. The HED Jet 6 Plus Clincher is a wheelset for the switchbacks. It's a dangerous cliche to say that the Jet 6 is a 'one-quiver' wheel, but that's exactly how HED designed it. It's heavier than a traditional climbing wheelset, but for most moderate hills, it's still more efficient and inherently faster. Over the past 26 years of engineering wheels, Steve Hed's end goal remains the same: simply make them as fast as possible. So, it's almost a given that HED aerodynamics are superb. However, what you might not know is that these wheels' aerodynamics are equally matched by their low rolling resistance. We have HED's C2 rim concept concept to thank for this. Essentially, C2 is about reduction of the two C's -- less Cda (aerodynamic drag) and less Crr (rolling resistance). Accordingly, a 25mm rim width makes this possible, and is mainly responsible for the wider-is-better campaign that's been replicated throughout the market. But, you're certainly wondering, why wider' Well, the width provides what can be described as an 'aero shroud' for the rest of the wheel. This also changes the nature of the tire's contact patch with the road. However, HED also knows that faster speeds require a heightened sense of control. This becomes evident through HED testing, as it found that rim depths which cross the forty or fifty-millimeter threshold grow increasingly more difficult to handle in crosswinds. So, HED engineered a solution that it calls Stability Control Technology, or SCT. In regards to the wheel shape, at 0-15 degree yaw angles, SCT reduces the force put on the wheels by side winds. This makes the Jet 6's 60mm depth handle more like a 30 or 40mm deep wheel in cross...

HED's Jet 9 Plus Black Carbon Disc Brake Wheelset goes straight to the extreme of road braking, upstaging questionable carbon braking, alloy rim braking, and even the vastly improved Jet Black brake track with the superior stopping power of disc brakes. Disc brakes also virtually ensure that carbon wheels will never violently deform after reaching the glass transition temperature as a result of constant braking on long, hot descents. HED also knows that anyone interested in 90mm rims is looking primarily for faster speeds, not faster stopping, and HED's Stability Control Technology (SCT) ensures that the increased aerodynamics don't come with handling that throws you around in crosswinds. SCT involves rounding the rim's spoke face and sidewall profile to reduce force put on the wheels by side winds at 0-15 degree yaw angles. While 90mm rims will obviously never handle crosswinds like box clinchers, the rounded inner face of SCT design does give the deep dish monsters more intuitive predictability than wheels with a true NACA airfoil cross section. The Jet 9s also feature HED's signature 25mm C2 rim width, which increases tire volume and contact patch for lower rolling resistance, more grip in corners, and a more vertically-oriented tire sidewall that is better able to deform around irregularities in the road surface -- all of which translates to being able to run a lower PSI for increased comfort without sacrificing efficiency. The wheels are finished with HED's own Sonic Black hubs, which run ABEC5 bearings on oversized axles with wide flanges for a stiff, lateral bracing angle and more efficient power transfer. The rear hub has high flanges and a capped grease port, so you can power wash and re-lube the wheels as needed. Both quick-release skewers have titanium shafts, and the ratchet ring in the rear hub is also titanium. Please also note that HED recommends a maximum tire pressure of 100PSI.

HED's Jet 9 Plus Black Carbon Wheelset is the same wheelset Optum p/b Kelly Benefit Strategies' Zirbel rode to victory at the North Star Grand Prix except for two differences: stopping power is improved with HED's Turbine Braking Technology and the graphics are murdered-out for a stealth look. While aesthetics are subjective, the improved braking means that these wheels are actually better than those ridden by a multiple national time trial champion with one of the biggest engines in the domestic scene. Instead of dodgy, screaming carbon brake tracks or the standard alloy on Zirbel's set, the Jet 9 Black rims feature the specially machined and anodized alloy surface mentioned above. This surface nets claimed reductions in stopping distance of 25% and 70% in dry and wet conditions, respectively, and a 5x increase in braking consistency. Keeping in mind that this is in comparison to aluminum rims, not carbon, it's safe to assume that the Jet 9 Black wheels provide the most consistent braking in their category.

HED being HED, since that first unveiling, the Minnesota-based manufacturer has been constantly tinkering with and updating the profile, structure, hub, brake track and every other aspect of the wheel. The Jet Plus Carbon Disc Wheel is the latest iteration, bringing the increased stability, comfort, and rolling speed of an expanded rim width to a wheel that HED calls "the epitome of speed." The secret to the Plus build's ride quality lies in the expanded tire volume afforded by a the wider, 25mm rim. Since the tire's bead sits fatter, the tire itself follows suit, which serves to make a plusher ride with less PSI required while reducing rolling resistance by putting a healthier patch of tire on the tarmac. It also straightens the sidewalls, which means you'll also have more tire contact while cornering, a benefit that goes some way toward addressing the handling issues associated with disc wheels and TT bikes. The tire also sits more flush with the rim, creating an unbroken plane that better manages air flow across the tire/wheel transition, improving yet further on the aerodynamic benefits of a disc wheel. As with every other Jet model, the Jet Disc Plus is built with a carbon fairing sandwiching 24 14-guage spokes and attached to an alloy spine. The benefits of this construction are immediately obvious to anyone who has experienced dodging carbon brake tracks when the pace is interrupted by a crash in the group or the advent of a sudden obstacle. The Jet Disc Plus' aluminum brake track grabs with more confidence and provides better modulation. It also doesn't scream under hard braking like its carbon counterpart, which both you and anyone in the vicinity will appreciate on pre-work training rides on an otherwise silent, peaceful morning. The one drawback to this construction model is weight, but since disc wh...

HED Stinger 3 CX FR Carbon Disc Brake Wheelset -Tubular HED Stinger 3 CX FR Carbon Disc Brake Wheelset -Tubular
Even though carbon has been proven in applications like F1 racing suspension, the aerospace industry, and cycling's own Hell of the North, we admit that some in the office still approach carbon rims and cockpits with a little trepidation. HED's Stinger 3 CX FR Carbon Disc Brake Tubular Wheelset goes some way toward assuaging that cautious impulse, though, courtesy of its tire bed, which is expanded beyond even the width of a standard Stinger 3 tub wheel. The extra width does add a few grams, but it comes with the benefits of more secure tire seating and increased structural integrity throughout the rim, so you can stay stone-faced and focused on the race even while clearing 'cross tabletops or putting in a dig on the stones. While the wider tire bed is what sets the CX model apart from its stablemates, the Stinger 3 CX FR's disc brake compatibility earns it membership in a club that's only slightly less exclusive. Cycling's world governing body may be hmm-ing and haw-ing about discs on the road, but when the day calls for rain with a chance of cobblestones or a mucky cyclocross course, discs just make sense. The instant engagement -- even in horrific conditions (2001 Roubaix, anyone') -- is enough to justify discs on skinny-tire wheels, as disc's ability to grab without wasting a rotation clearing debris from the rim track will be most welcome in those not-quite road, not-quite off-road situations where wider tubs earn their keep. These specialist deviations from the standard Stinger recipe don't come at the expense of HED's C2 tubular build. The Stinger 3 CX still hits the marks of lower rolling resistance and increased aerodynamics that underwrite HED's 25mm "Plus" rim width philosophy. Add to these gains the benefits in ride quality, cornering, and even less rolling resistance inherent in tubs, and the Stinger 3 CXs are elevated to an all-purpose wheel, not just a 'cross racer. In addition to its C2 rims, HED constructed the Stinger 3s with its Stability Con...

HED Stinger Disc FR Carbon Road Wheel - Tubular HED Stinger Disc FR Carbon Road Wheel - Tubular
When aerodynamics trump all other considerations, the HED Stinger Disc FR Carbon wheel is the weapon to meet and exceed all expectations. The longer toroidal bulge makes the Stinger much more aerodynamic than even its carbon disc siblings. And, because of the lenticular, rather than flat, sides, the Stinger is much more stable in crosswinds. You may be wondering what the numbers say about all this. At 14 degrees of yaw, the Stinger has an incredible -90g of drag. In comparison, its sibling, the Jet disc, has 30g, and a conventional spoked wheel has 220g. In layman's terms, the Stinger saves you an incredible 28 watts over a conventional wheel. For the greatest aerodynamic advantage, HED recommends you run 22-23mm tires. The freehub body is available with Campagnolo splines or with Shimano/SRAM splines.

Hutchinson Fusion 5 All Season Tire - Tubeless Hutchinson Fusion 5 All Season Tire - Tubeless
We all dream of race-day conditions involving sun, a subtle breeze, and smooth, unblemished ribbons of road stretching out in front of us. In reality, sun and a light breeze might happen, but road conditions are rarely, if ever, ideal. Rather than pining for the tarmac of your dreams, wrapping your race hoops with Hutchinson's Fusion 5 All-Season Tire would be a more constructive action to take. Designed for race-worthy rolling through unfavorable conditions, the Fusion 5 will enable your race bike to do what it was designed for -- regardless of whether you're racing on sloppy winter and spring roads or kinder summer and fall ones. The number 5 in the Fusion's name refers to the five characteristics Hutchinson addressed when constructing it, including grip, efficiency, durability, puncture resistance, and comfort. It uses a striated design on the rubber to enhance the tire's grip and ability to shed water on wet, early season roads, as well as a larger grain size to add grip and puncture resistance. Comfort comes courtesy of the 127 TPI, and Hutchinson paid close attention to overall efficiency by choosing between 105 different rubber compounds while fine-tuning the combination that would keep the Fusion 5 capable but quick.

Hutchinson Fusion 5 Galactik Tire - Tubeless Hutchinson Fusion 5 Galactik Tire - Tubeless
When updating its Fusion 3 tire lineup for 2016, the French rubber masters over at Hutchinson chose to skip straight past four and instead christen their new line Fusion 5. Rather than a bold statement in post-modernist self-reflexivity, the move is actually in reference to the five characteristics they feel a tire needs to exhibit to achieve the best ride quality: grip, rolling performance, durability, puncture resistance, and comfort. Amongst the Fusion 5 line, the Galactik Tubeless Tire occupies the upper echelon, representing the thinnest, most pared-down option for race-day speed and resilience. Whether you're whirring around corners and riding at threshold on a closed criterium course or out in an open road race, Hutchinson makes sure that you'll be able to take the Galactik out without holding your breath and waiting for a flat. Though the Fusion 5 line does include an All Season tire option for more consistently challenging conditions, the Galactik is more than capable of managing its share of imperfect shoulders and road grit in a race, maintaining a low rolling resistance with a casing that's far from delicate. That casing is a 127 TPI carcass of densely-woven threads that Hutchinson further reinforces with nylon puncture protection to create a plush ride with confidence-inspiring durability. Guaranteeing a tire won't betray you in a race is impossible, but the Galactik's tubeless construction, smart composition, and Hutchinson pedigree make it something we'd be pretty confident taking to a starting line.

The long-distance relationship between Industry Nine and Reynolds Cycling is one that we're all lucky to experience. Across the miles between North Carolina and Utah, I9 and Reynolds combine their expertise in carbon fiber and hub design to create wheelsets with a pedigree unmarred by the classic trappings of purebred models. Like your beloved mutt, the Industry Nine C29 TL Carbon Road Wheelset comes with the best features of its parents: I9's venerable Torch hubs, and Reynolds' expert carbon rims, which follow the exact profile of Reynolds' climb-ready Attack rims. Whether used purely as an everyday rim or as your climbing weapon, the C29 will easily become one of the most dependable wheelsets in your arsenal. Reynolds trusts in-depth engineering to shape the C29's adaptable rims. The 29mm depth undeniably lends the wheelset to climbing first, but its low weight and efficiency on high elevation days doesn't come at the expense of stiffness around corners. Reynolds' use of a 25mm external rim width complements its rigidity with a wider seat that affords your tire increased contact with the road. By running your tubeless tires at lower pressure, you'll gain stability and grip when taking advantage of the rim's enthusiasm around tight corners and ribboning tarmac. Though we'd all prefer to hold onto speed rather than shed it, braking is a key component in carbon rim design, whether we're racing or out on a joy ride. When you squeeze the levers at the top of a serpentine descent, wind whipping around you from indiscernible angles, Reynolds' CTg (Crygenic Glass Transition) brake track will provide the kind of reassuring stopping power rarely seen on carbon hoops. A carbon laminate that must be used with Reynolds' Cryo-Blue Power brake pads, CTg stays significantly cooler than other comparable braking surfaces, leading to more predictable slow-downs and a significantly reduced likelihood of brake failure due to overheating.

Industry Nine Ultralite CX Disc Wheelset - Tubeless Industry Nine Ultralite CX Disc Wheelset - Tubeless
It should be no surprise that one of the leaders in mountain bike hub technology brought that tech over to cyclocross wheels the second disc brakes reached market saturation. The Industry Nine Ultralight CX Disc Wheelset is designed for cyclocrossers who ride their bikes everywhere, on all kinds of terrain, and don't care for the risk (or expense) of carbon hoops. The rims themselves are Industry Nine's tried and trusted Ultralite mountain rim -complete with its 21mm internal width. This spreads tires a bit wider, and makes the most of a UCI-legal 33mm tire. Laced to these rims are Industry Nine's Torch hubs, with one key difference. Since flat-ground coasting is more crucial to road and cyclocross racing than mountain biking, Industry Nine took out three of the standard six pawls to reduce drag. The hubs and rims are connected via 24 of Sapim's CX-Ray stainless steel spokes. Due to the low spoke count, the Ultralight CX Disc Wheelset carries a 190lb rider weight limit, and the rims perform best with a 28mm-or-wider tire.

ISM Adamo Road Saddle ISM Adamo Road Saddle
In 1999, the UCI delivered new bicycle restrictions that reduced the allowable amount of saddle setback. In the process, it forced racers into a nether world of sitting on the tips of their saddles. The change was under the guise of keeping the bikes and riders safe, but the reality is that a soft tissue injury is very likely because standard racing saddles aren't designed to provide proper support when you are in a fast, aero, and legal position. The ISM Adamo Road Saddle is made expressly for the purpose of supporting your weight without compromising blood flow when your primary concern is reducing your frontal area. It's no secret that a forward position on your time trial bike will reduce your frontal area. Essentially, the further you rotate forward over the bottom bracket, the less area that you'll present to the wind as your head and chest become smaller factors in your personal drag equation. However, an aggressive aerodynamic position necessarily compromises comfort in favor of speed. So, the Adamo Saddle provides more comfort and support when you're in a fast forward position. This way, when every second counts, your comfort will become one less thing to disrupt the rhythm of your race. ISM designed the Adamo Road to be just over the UCI saddle minimum length of 240mm. With it perched atop your saddle rails in a legal 5cm behind-the-bottom-bracket position, the wings of the Adamo saddle (that provide support for your sit bones) will be 7-9cm farther forward than your current racing saddle. The forward width is just one of the visible ways that the Adamo saddle is different. The nose of the saddle is actually split into two forward projections, like a fork. The cutout between the forked tips takes away the pressure on your perineal artery. Tests on the ISM saddles have shown them to have little effect on normal blood flow to the genital area (less than 5% loss). Of the other saddles tested, some were shown to affect the blood flow up to 95%. For those ...

Since Knight Composites is a debut manufacturer and the 35 Carbon Fibre/DT Swiss 240S Road Wheelset is the label's top-end, do-it-all model, you won't be surprised to learn that the wheels are being touted as nothing short of revolutionary. Refreshingly, the Knight 35 actually lives up to the promised aerodynamic gains and impeccable build quality. With the inclusion of DT Swiss' venerable 240s hub set, the wheelset also manages to reach a claimed weight of 1,404g -- 78g and 136g lighter than two ubiquitous leading models -- so the Knight 35's revolutions are aerodynamic for flats and light for climbs. Like much of the cycling world, you may be unfamiliar with this new manufacturer. We won't go too far into the details of Knight's history except to note that the collective resume of the three founders reads like a checklist of all the names we've come to associate with carbon aerodynamics in cycling. Since the founders' work has largely defined the current industry standards, you might not be surprised to learn that Knight was formed as a vehicle to push those designs even further. Toward this end, Knight developed its Trailing Edge Aerodynamic Manipulation Technology (Team Tech), which refocuses the aerodynamics of the wheel. Instead of creating an aerodynamic leading edge, or even just an aerodynamic tire-to-rim transition, TEAM Tech designs wheels as part of a bicycle-wide system of aerodynamics that includes tires, rims, fork, and frame. This system began with Computational Fluid Dynamics software, proceeded through no fewer than two rounds of wind tunnel testing, and ate up hundreds of test models to produce the Knight 35 alone. The result of the laborious TEAM Tech process is a cross-section that describes a tapered parabola rather than the sharp point of a NACA airfoil or the overly-rounded "U" shape of wheels that are dominating the market today -- and that Knight's founders were instrumental in creating. This new shape meets TEAM Tech's mandate by gradua...

Though the name might be unfamiliar, Knight Composites enjoys the industry-defining pedigree of three of the minds largely responsible for the current state of aerodynamics in cycling. With the 65 Carbon Fibre/Aivee SR5 Road Wheelset, the company's founders have effectively announced Knight's intention to once again redefine the limits of aerodynamics in wheels, and -- by including Aivee's SR5 hubs -- the Bend, Oregon-based firm does so while losing a claimed 57g compared to the current industry leader in 60mm aerodynamic wheels. Compared to the DT Swiss option, the Aivee hubs enjoy some nominal weight loss, which is always appreciated, but Knight cites an overall increase in strength as the real benefit of Aivee's hubs. It credits the French manufacturer's peculiar flange design for that increase, though we'd also suggest that Aivee's meticulous construction processes may also play a role. The hubs' bodies are machined in France on equipment that also produces aerospace and medical-grade equipment, harnessing the precision demanded by those fields in order to capitalize on the wheels' aerodynamic gains. Those aerodynamic gains are what the Knight 65s are all about, and they're achieved with Knight's reimagining of the traditional approaches to drag reduction, codenamed Trailing Edge Aerodynamic Manipulation Technology (TEAM Tech). Instead of creating an aerodynamic leading edge, or even just an aerodynamic tire-to-rim transition, TEAM Tech designs wheels as part of a bicycle-wide system of aerodynamics that includes tires, rims, fork, and frame by focusing on the rim's trailing edge. The result of the laborious TEAM Tech process is a cross-section that describes a tapered parabola rather than the sharp point of a NACA airfoil or the overly-rounded "U" shape of wheels that Knight's founders helped develop and that are dominating the market today. This new shape meets TEAM Tech's mandate by gradually widening airflow across the rim, which swells from 25. 5mm at t...

Knight Composites may be a new name in the cycling industry, but the 65 Carbon Fibre/DT Swiss 240s Road Wheelset proves that the veteran design team behind the label knows that, when it comes to race wheels, less is more. At a claimed 1,604g, the Knight 65 Wheelset compares favorably to the two industry leaders, gaining just 40g (but costing hundreds of dollars less) compared to one and losing over 200g compared to the other. Of course, the less-is-more truism isn't always accurate, as more millimeters in depth and more pre-production R&D result in more aerodynamic benefits and more secure handling. Plus, a little more DT Swiss 240s never hurts, either, on this model of the 65 includes two hub-shaped scoops. Whatever the metric, though, Knight was formed by three industry veterans who largely designed the standards of today and wanted a vehicle to push those standards into the future. To achieve this, Knight developed what it's calling Trailing Edge Aerodynamic Manipulation Technology (TEAM Tech), which reinvents the aerodynamics of the wheel. Instead of creating an aerodynamic leading edge, or even just an aerodynamic tire-to-rim transition, TEAM Tech designs wheels as part of a bicycle-wide system of aerodynamics that includes tires, rims, fork, and frame.

The three names behind the nascent Knight Composites are responsible for much of the industry-leading technology in cycling aerodynamics today. Given that pedigree, it's not surprising that Knight's 95 Carbon Fibre/Aivee SR5 Road Wheelset is built with aerospace-grade carbon, compacted with an internal bladder, and subjected to testing that exceeds CEN standards. The new aerodynamic profile certainly surprises, though, as Knight's wind tunnel data suggests the Knight 95 sheds up to dozens of grams of drag force compared to the current industry leaders. Plus, by omitting its usual choice of DT Swiss hubs in favor of Aivee's lighter SR5 hubs, Knight manages to effect a nominal weight loss and a boost in structural integrity. The slight claimed weight loss is obviously appreciated, but the overall increase in strength is the real benefit of opting for Aivee hubs. Knight credits the French manufacturer's peculiar flange design for that increase, though we'd also suggest that Aivee's meticulous construction processes may play a role. The hubs' bodies are machined in France on equipment that also produces aerospace and medical-grade equipment, harnessing the precision demanded by those fields in order to capitalize on the wheels' aerodynamic gains. While that weight loss is impressive, a 95mm rim's real job is to cut drag. According to Knight's numbers, the 95's impressive aerodynamic benefits top out at 15 degrees of yaw while traveling at 30mph with -112g of drag force -- roughly equivalent to a solid disc wheel but without the handling drawbacks. That negative number suggests that these wheels actually help propel the bike forward after you've spun them up. Knight calculates the effect of this addition by subtraction as a claimed savings of 22. 5 seconds over 40km when compared to its most aerodynamically-gifted competitor. Just by changing wheels. These gains have seen Knight's newly released wheels enjoy immediate favor with athletes ranging from 70. 3 winners to...

Knight Composites as a brand is relatively new to the cycling industry. In fact, the 95 Carbon Fibre/DT Swiss 240s Wheelset is the flagship of its debut line, so we admit to being more than a little skeptical about the impressive claims made by Knight's R&D materials. Considering that the company was founded by three veteran innovators of carbon and aerodynamics, we probably shouldn't have been. Knight's wind tunnel numbers bear the claims out and suggest that the Knight 95 may be the fastest wheel that we carry. The Knight 95's impressive aerodynamic benefits top out at 15 degrees of yaw while traveling at 30mph with a claimed -112g of drag force. That's right, negative. The effect of this negative contribution is a claimed savings of 22. 5 seconds over 40km when compared to its most aerodynamically-gifted competitor. Just by changing wheels. To put that in perspective, riding the Knight 95 could very well have put Fignon atop the final podium of the closest Tour ever. Of course, unless you have the engine of a Fignon (or a LeMond, for that matter), 30mph is a bit excessive over the course of a long event, but those advantages also trickle down to speeds in the mid-20s, so the 95s actually help propel you forward once you've spun them up. The inclusion of DT Swiss' smooth 240s hubs also goes some way toward countering the deep rims' increased rotational mass, meaning that you'll hit those cruising speeds faster and with less internal friction. To achieve these almost comical test numbers, Knight developed what it's calling Trailing Edge Aerodynamic Manipulation Technology (TEAM Tech), which reinvents the aerodynamics of the wheel by shifting the focus from the leading to the trailing edge. This change in focus helped Knight design wheels as part of a bicycle-wide system of aerodynamics that includes tires, rims, fork, and frame.

Lauf Grit Suspension Fork Lauf Grit Suspension Fork
If road cycling is the epitome of long-held traditions and narrowly defined style, then gravel is its antithesis, eschewing mainstream mannerisms to push the edges of unique and utilitarian design. As such, it isn't surprising that Lauf has adapted its eye-catchingly unparalleled leafspring suspension design to the gravel with its Grit Suspension Fork. Gram-counting racers will likely shy away from this fork in preference for lightweight, rigid speed, but for those us looking for a boost of cushioned comfort without the added maintenance and hassle of a traditional suspension fork, the Grit is just what we've been waiting for. Not to mention that a Grit-equipped bike is guaranteed to stand out from the crowd and be a conversation piece on any ride.With 30mm of travel provided by rows of S2 glassfiber springs slotted into a carbon fiber body, the Grit is designed to soak up the rattly bumps of spottily maintained roads miles away from civilization. Lauf claims that the travel is progressive, meaning it gets stiffer as it compresses to prevent bottom outs while still smoothing out the smaller bumps along the way. The leafspring design does pride simplicity and freedom from maintenance over adjustability, which means the overall feel of the travel will vary across riders with ride stiffness highly dependent on rider weight.

Mavic Aksium Elite Wheelset - Clincher Mavic Aksium Elite Wheelset - Clincher
Mavic's latest Aksium Elite Wheel System returns virtually unchanged for the new model year, combining the same value, reliability, and obsessively developed French engineering that has long made Mavic yellow a staple on bikes of all levels. Obviously, the Aksium Elite doesn't stack up to the wheels atop the neutral support vehicles in European races, but it does make a damn fine training set for a dedicated athlete or an inexpensive but notable upgrade over most bikes' stock wheels. You've probably noticed that the Aksium Elite is substantially less expensive than Mavic's Ksyrium wheel offerings, and -- as expected -- that price difference comes with a change to the spec sheet. Rather than having FORE drilled rims and thread-in spoke grommets, the Aksium rim is a more traditional single-eyelet style where the spoke holes penetrate the rim's outer wall. The Aksium rims are constructed from S6000 aluminum, and Mavic uses its UB Control technology to mill the braking surface. The result is improved brake friction and smooth, controlled stopping in almost any weather conditions. The wheels feature 20 (front and rear) steel spokes with brass nipples. Each spoke is equipped with Mavic's Self Lock technology that uses a special shape on the spoke end to make it impossible to loosen when it's on the thread. The design reduces tension loss, and the wheels stay truer, longer. The Aksium Elite wheels aren't as light as some costlier counterparts, but their outstanding durability and Mavic's aerodynamic details help to compensate for the extra grams. The 21mm rim profile, low spoke count, and use of bladed spokes manage to mitigate much of their beefiness. And, while the Aksium uses the identical lightweight FTS-L steel freehub body as the Ksyrium Elite and SL wheels, its sealed bearing hubs lack on-bike adjustability. The Aksium Elite system comes complete with Mavic's Yksion Elite Guard tires, which represent a substantial improvement over the Aksion tires that came wit...

Mavic Cosmic Carbone 40 Wheelset - Tubular Mavic Cosmic Carbone 40 Wheelset - Tubular
Just as not every pro rider is capable of a victory at Roubaix, not every high-end wheelset is created with the right mix of technology and construction to excel in the brutal conditions of the Hell of the North. Mavic's Cosmic Carbone 40 Tubular Wheelset is one of those that can, and has, with a 2011 Roubaix victory to prove it. Displaying groundbreaking advancements in heat dissipation and carbon construction, as well as Mavic's attention to detail throughout the wheelset, right down to the tires, the Cosmic Carbone 40 confidently handles conditions that slow other wheelsets down -- all while keeping an eye towards getting to the finish line as quickly as possible. To develop a rim that can go beyond the point where others would fail, Mavic looked beyond the heat-dissipating rim treatments that other manufacturers have relied on for years to help mitigate the issue. Instead, Mavic rethought the construction of the rim itself, focusing their efforts on a proprietary resin and a construction process called TgMAX. TgMAX begins with a standard process of laying-up unidirectional 3k carbon. These layers are applied manually in order to ensure that the proper positioning of each layer of carbon is achieved -- no corners cut here. Mavic then furthers the process and incorporates several types of resins, affixing them to the carbon structure with a proprietary heat-treatment process. After this, the rim is tempered at high pressure, a process that relines the carbon crystals to raise the amount of heat the rim can shrug off before it fails. The point of failure is known as the glass transition temperature, or Tg. At a material's Tg, it transitions from a stiff substance to a rubbery one, which accounts for the failure of carbon rims under hard, heat-producing braking, often occurring during long, steep descents. TgMAX realigns the carbon fibers' crystals to maximize the amount of heat the rim can endure without failing, translating to more braking with a reduced likel...

Mavic Cosmic Pro Carbon SL Clincher Wheelset Mavic Cosmic Pro Carbon SL Clincher Wheelset
If we were to choose one descriptor to apply universally to Mavic, it might be "stubborn." There are negative and positive implications of the brand's stubbornness, and the new Cosmic Pro Carbon SL Clincher Wheelset reinforces the positives while dispelling the negatives. The positive aspects of Mavic's stubbornness are that the brand is obsessed with safety and durability to the point where it won't compromise either in pursuit of fads. Mavic wheels simply refuse to fail because the brand refuses to gamble on new tech for the sake of newness alone. This leads to the negative aspect: Mavic has been criticized for apparently lagging behind the so-called "innovative" manufacturers because of that stubborn refusal to immediately adopt whatever new tech happens to catch the industry's collective fancy. Of course, that kind of stubbornness is only negative if you value industry trends over proven, effective, and safe technology. To illustrate the point, consider that at a recent sportive event associated with that big race in France, Mavic reportedly provided neutral service support for 38 instances of carbon clincher failures. This tells us what Mavic knew all along: delamination, deformation, cracking, and the like are all still common occurrences in the carbon wheel world. To deal with this, Mavic has long used aluminum inserts in its carbon wheels to serve as reinforcing spines and heat sinks. The risks of full-carbon rims were unacceptable to the brand, which is built on reliability, safety, and longevity as much as it is low weight and aerodynamics -- all of which are reasons why generations of cyclists have been grateful for that stubbornness. The brand recently poached an engineer from the aerospace indsutry, one Jean-Christophe Minni, and gave him two years to develop carbon fiber technology that would allow it to assuage its own concerns with the safety of composite materials. The new, full-carbon Cosmic Pro Carbon SL is the result. Minni's construction pro...

Mavic Cosmic Pro Carbon SL Disc Wheelset - Tubular Mavic Cosmic Pro Carbon SL Disc Wheelset - Tubular
The stars of Mavic's all-new, full carbon rim design launch have undoubtedly been the Cosmic Pro Carbon SL and Ksyrium Pro Carbon SL clincher rim-brake editions as Mavic's well-researched and meticulously designed first foray into carbon braking tracks. Alongside that release, The Cosmic Pro Carbon SL Disc Tubular Wheelset has taken a seat in the wings, quietly emitting excellence with a new rim design and disc brake compatibility.We'll admit to being a little bit partial to the Cosmic, as it's steeped in nostalgia as the wheelset that usurped the Ksyrium on start lines across the world and ushered in an era of deep-dish carbon race rims. That said, the classic NACA profile had its issues in crosswinds, so we're excited to see a new rim shape integrating under the Cosmic name. The new profile is less pointy than Mavic's usual models, featuring a dramatically blunted inner face that represents the most radical departure from a pure NACA airfoil shape from the French firm to date. This shape better manages oblique resistance, combining the aerodynamic benefits of deep rims with additional crosswind stability.Mavic claims that the Cosmic Pro Carbon SL's profile compares favorably to some of our top-selling wheels in the 40-50mm range, and credits it with saving 2. 3 watts across yaw angles up to 10 degrees. This means the aerodynamic properties don't disappear as soon as you take the wheels out of the wind tunnel and onto the actual roads.With all the excitement about the new rims, it'd be easy to overlook the Cosmic Carbon SL's Instant Drive 360 hubs. The hubs represent yet another drastic departure from tradition, as the engagement mechanism replaces the usual pawl system with the dual-ratcheting rings formally found only in designer hubs on custom, hand-built wheels. The design involves two rings that press together laterally. One face of the rings' teeth is sloped, so they ramp off of each other while freewheeling. The other face isn't, so the rings engage wi...

Mavic Ksyrium Elite Allroad Disc Wheelset - Clincher Mavic Ksyrium Elite Allroad Disc Wheelset - Clincher
Mavic embraces the all-road trend with its Ksyrium Elite Allroad Disc Clincher Wheelset, building on the Ksyrium's legendary ride with a beefier 19mm internal rim width that better pairs with the wider tires needed to venture beyond the pavement. Trading out the more expensive Ksyrium Pro Allroad's Zicral spokes for ever so slightly heavier steel spokes, the Ksyrium Elite Allroad lands at more palatable pricepoint that'll have you packing your weekends with adventures onto roads less traveled. To construct the rims, Mavic uses its Inter Spoke Milling 4 Dimensions (ISM 4D), which involves machining non-essential material from the rim to reduce weight, but keeping it around the alloy spokes to give the rims the strength and stiffness you'd expect from anything in the Ksyrium line. This process also lowers the rotating mass of the wheel for better responsiveness and acceleration than non-milled rims -- making sure these wheels stay snappy in power-sucking loose gravel or on poorly maintained side roads.The rim width wasn't the only part of the Allroad Disc that Mavic decided needed an update -- the brand also reworked its hub design, introducing the Instant Drive 360 freewheel system. The system replaces the formerly used pawls with two interlocking, ratcheting rings that Mavic claims engage every nine degrees. In addition to faster engagement, the hubs are easier to maintain and protect, especially after being treated with a new sealant to keep out moisture and debris.The Ksyrium Elite Allroad Disc wheelset is available with a 12 x 100mm and 12 x 142mm thru-axle pairing, with a Shimano/SRAM freehub, and your choice of 6-bolt or centerlock rotor attachment. It also comes outfitted with Mavic's Yksion Elite Allroad 30mm tubeless tires, though you can choose to run them as standard clinchers if you prefer. While they aren't bombproof, the Yksions are quick on pavement and consistently stable in off-road conditions without being weighed down by aggressive knobs.

Mavic Ksyrium Elite UST Disc Brake Wheelset - Tubeless Mavic Ksyrium Elite UST Disc Brake Wheelset - Tubeless
The name Ksyrium has come to be synonymous with reliability, value, and tradition. Unfortunately, a world of ever expanding rim widths and tire mounting options means that tradition became something of an albatross around the neck. The Mavic Ksyrium Elite UST Tubeless Disc Brake Wheelset bridges the gap between tradition and innovation, combining classic Ksyrium reliability with disc brakes, a generous rim width, and what may be the easiest tubeless mounting operation we've ever seen. They're slightly heavier than the Ksyrium Pro version, but it's hard to fault them a few grams when the steel spokes and virtually indestructible rim mean that, in the off chance you knock them out of true or snap a spoke, any bike shop or competent home mechanic the world over will be able to quickly get them rolling again. The key changes denoted by the UST designation are almost all at the rim, but the hubs bear a brief mention first. First, they're equipped for disc brakes, which have the kind of modulation and high-end stopping power that benefits riders in dusty, wet, or heavily laden touring conditions. Second, the Ksyrium Elite UST is among the first alloy wheelsets to roll out of the factory on the Instant Drive 360 freehub, which debuted in spring of 2016 on Mavic's first full carbon wheels. We were instantly won over by the new design, but the bar for entry was pretty high considering the price of the carbon wheels. Now, Mavic is lacing its most trusted training hoops to it, so the Instant Drive 360 hub is available for everyone from dedicated racers looking for spring training wheels or the dedicated recreationalist who appreciates the nuances of finely manufactured kit.

Mavic has spent a lot of time over the last decade developing its softgoods game--jerseys, shoes, bibs, and the like. The brand has enjoyed some impressive success on that front, but for many of us in the Competitive office, we still associate the yellow label primarily with wheels, and perhaps no wheel is better known, ridden, and beloved than the Ksyrium Elite. It's only fitting, then, that Mavic includes it in its new lineup of comically user-friendly tubeless wheels, and the Ksyrium Elite UST Tubeless Wheelset promise to teach an entirely new generation of cyclists why the OG Ksyrium Elite played such a formative role in older cyclists' lives in the saddle.

At last, you can take your Ksyrium loyalties onto the gravel with the reassurance of a wider 19mm internal rim width and compatibility with beefier 25mm and 28mm tires on Mavic's all-new Ksyrium Pro Allroad Disc Wheelset. Get excited about this new edition to Mavic's storied Ksyrium line, because something like this doesn't come around every year. With Mavic giving the widening rim width trend its long-withheld blessing, it's time to put the Allroad Disc on your frame and go enjoy Ksyrium reliability as you roll over choppy back roads and duck onto empty gravel paths. Using ever-reliable aluminum, Mavic shaped the Allroad Disc carefully, removing excess material to take advantage of aluminum's admirable blend of lightness and strength. Test the responsiveness of the Allroad disc as you attempt to maneuver up a slick gravel climb; the milled rim construction Mavic uses creates a wheelset that reacts quickly when you need it to on punchy climbs and loose sections of road. Normally, rim width would be a big enough deal on a new wheelset, but Mavic was in an overachieving mood when working on the Allroad Disc. If you're undecided on the Allroad Disc still, the brand new Instant Drive 360 hub alone should be enough motivation to scoop up a set of these wheels. The hub's design, featuring two interlocking ratcheting rings, is the first of its kind introduced on mass-produced wheels, and their nine claimed degrees of engagement and improved seals will make you realize what it actually feels like to pop out of a corner and accelerate into a straightaway. You can run the included Yksions clincher or tubeless, and if you do go tubeless, the rims are already sealed so you won't need to use any tape.

In the days of classic tubing and graceful shift cable arcs, Mavic's aluminum Ksyrium wheelset held court as the legendarily bombproof race wheel of choice. In the best of times, the Ksyrium wound up fast for a snappy, responsive ride, and in the worst, we've seen the mid-2000's era hoops emerge unscathed from a high speed fray with a competitor's rear derailleur that would have left almost any other wheel wobbling home minus a few spokes. The influx of carbon wheels has relegated even the most royal of alloy rims to training miles, though, and the new Mavic Ksyrium Pro Carbon SL C Clincher Wheelset is stepping onto the scene with a full carbon rim and Mavic's trademark reliability to regain its place at the pointy end of the peloton. Mavic launching a full-carbon rim is a stop-the-presses moment for the bike industry. The company is nothing if not a stickler for safety and has long been a stubborn outlier with its aluminum-bedded braking surface in its carbon wheels, citing concerns over safety and braking performance with full-carbon rims. Mavic claims to have finally cracked the heat buildup and braking power puzzle with its iTgMAX rim construction, which uses a proprietary resin to resist heat buildup and reduce chances of rim failure or tire blowout. Along with Mavic's laser etched braking surface, this technology results in exceptional braking reliability across wet and dry conditions for a claimed 48% reduction in stopping distances compared to other carbon rims. We haven't been able to test this out, but Mavic revolutionized aluminum braking surfaces with its Exalith design; we see no reason why they wouldn't do the same with carbon. While that heat resistance is mostly about improvements to resin, deformed rims aren't the only wheel failure woe Mavic's iTgMax technology addresses. The all-important carbon layers of material in the tire bed are wholly intact. There's no cutting fibers, no Frankensteining, no creative gap filling, and no machine finishin...

While the rim brake version of Mavic's new Ksyrium Pro Carbon SL Disc Clincher Wheelset basks in the limelight garnered by its iTgMAX braking surface, this wheelset sits smugly by its side with a similar full-carbon rim construction and the incomparable stopping confidence of disc-brakes. With a few extra spokes to manage the additional forces of disc brakes, the Ksyrium Pro Carbon SL Disc brings renowned Mavic reliability in a featherweight package that pairs effortlessly with your shiny new disc-equipped road frame. Mavic uses 3K carbon fibers to shape the rims in a bullet-nose profile. Mavic constructed it specifically with climbing in mind, so the 25mm-deep wheels are dependably stable while riding in crosswinds and tackling winding, long ascents. Mavic also paid close attention to the wheels' impact resistance, which earned high ratings, ensuring the wheels will be able to withstand long days on chip-sealed roads and weather-beaten shoulders while you're dreaming of buttery soft tarmac. Though it tends to privilege tradition, Mavic's Instant Drive 360 freehub shows it's not afraid of well-executed change by making it the first manufacturer to introduce a mass-produced wheel with a ratchet ring engagement system. The design is centered on a 40t, dual ratchet construction that boasts nine degrees of engagement. This marks a significant step forward for factory-built wheels because it features the kind of responsiveness and longevity normally reserved for third party hubs on hand-built wheels. The Instant Drive 360 hubs also feature more reliable, no-contact seals as a barrier against damaging road grit, and they save a claimed 40g compared to the FTS-L hubs.

Mount these wheels on your frame to barrel over gravel paths or your familiar road loops with Ksyrium reliability and the broader range of stopping power that disc brakes have delivered across cycling. Blending tradition with innovation, Mavic can count another success with the Ksyrium Pro Disc, trusting its effective ISM 4D milled alloy construction to create precise, deliberately-shaped rims devoid of any unnecessary weight. Designed to withstand seasons of routine training miles, the rims will be spinning on Mavic's trusted QRM+ bearings too, which, in addition to creating a smooth ride with durable double-seals, allow you to make adjustments without taking the wheels off your bike. Don't baby the hubs either; the freehub body's contact area has the added reinforcement of Mavic'c Force Transfer System Light technology, so responsiveness won't be an issue when you're mashing down on the pedals.

While it isn't always present on race day, Mavic's Ksyrium Pro Exalith Clincher Wheelset certainly sees more than its fair share of the base miles of spring that lead up to the start lines of summer. In addition to the obvious benefits of training on clinchers, the wheelset's key selling point in treacherous shoulder seasons is the Exalith II brake track, which involves a deep-penetrating chemical treatment process akin to anodization that gives the rims their signature, dark pallor and boosts stopping power. Compared to the previous generation of Exalith, Exalith II further increases braking by a claimed 18% in wet conditions, and the new pad/brake track interface reduces engagement noise. The Ksyrium line has gradually expanded over the years. It includes no fewer than 14 current iterations, but certain elements are constant across the Ksyrium family. The rims are made from Mavic's Maxtal alloy, which is 30% more resistant to fatigue and weighs less than traditional, 6106 aluminum. They're laced to the hubs with Zicral spokes in Mavic's Isopulse pattern, which involves radially lacing on the drive side and crossed two lacing on the non-drive side to account for the inherently asymmetrical power transmission of a bike's drivetrain. The hubs house Mavic's QRM+ bearings and FTS-L freehub in a carbon body (front -- a departure from most other Ksyriums) and an aluminum body (rear), and the bearings are adjustable with an Allen key and Mavic's included wrench. Unlike the standard, non-Exalith Ksyrium Pro, the Ksyrium Pro Exalith maintains the traditional Ksyriums' internal width of 15mm. This amounts to a claimed 80g weight loss in rotational mass, so the wheels spin-up faster out of corners and while punching it on climbs. This weight loss is despite the fact that Mavic gives the Ksyrium Pro Exalith's rim the Inter Spoke Milling 3 Dimensions (ISM 3D) treatment instead of the latest ISM 4D.

Mavic Ksyrium Pro UST Disc Brake Wheelset - Tubeless Mavic Ksyrium Pro UST Disc Brake Wheelset - Tubeless
Mavic first developed a tubeless rim profile in 1999 with its revolutionary Crossmax UST. The recently retired Boonen wasn't yet a pro, Tour fans were still hopeful about the newly minted Pantani/Ullrich rivalry, and the carbon fiber frame that Armstrong would ride in his first Tour win weighed about 1,746g. A lot has changed in cycling culture and technology since then, and the Ksyrium Pro UST Disc Brake Wheelset embodies two of the more recent changes that we think will be universally embraced by recreationalists and racers alike as the new standard in the coming 18 years. The wheels combine the weight loss of the Ksyrium Pro line with the confidence of disc brakes and the history of Mavic's UST tubeless expertise. The effect of Mavic's generation of tubeless genius becomes apparent early in the process of mounting the tires. We all love the lower rolling resistance, cushier ride, and increased puncture resistance of tubeless tires, but mounting them is an admitted hassle that's left a lot of us sticking with traditional tubes. Mavic's road UST design virtually eliminates any of these misgivings. First, the tires mount without levers. Mavic recommends tire levers if you'd like, but, in our experience, the brand's UST tires pop on and off with bare hands as easily (or more easily than) most tires on most other competitor's rims. The ease of installation and removal alone make a compelling case that Mavic is once again the leader in road wheel reliability, but the ease of inflating the UST design removes all doubts. Tricks for seating tubeless tires are often just that: tricks that involve a bit of luck for all but the most capable wrenches. Mavic turns this on its head: mounting UST tubeless tires to UST tubeless rims is less an art and more of a simple, easily reproducible act of science. Just pump them up. That's it. No CO2 cartridges, no fingers crossed moments to see if the air compressor will pop the beads into place, no disheartening bang from the tire ...

Mercury Wheels M1 Wheelset - Clincher Mercury Wheels M1 Wheelset - Clincher
The days of clear delineations between delicate race wheels and bombproof training wheels are largely past, but it still feels wrong to head out the door into a looming weather forecast and risk putting our beautiful carbon wheels through the stress of high winds, rainstorms, and the road grime that often accompanies those conditions. Instead, leave the carbon at home for more fair weather endeavors and swap out your brake pads to roll under the clouds with calm peace of mind on a solid set of aluminum training wheels like the Mercury Wheels M1 Clincher Wheelset. Made from lightweight yet durable alloy, this wheelset is the ideal training companion to give your race wheels a break from the elements and a more than capable option to have waiting patiently in the wheel pit or follow truck on race day. A 17mm rim width sits on the narrow side of ever-widening rim trends, which we feel makes this wheelset well suited for riders who prefer 23mm or 25mm road tires over something beefier.

Mercury Wheels M3 Carbon Disc Road Wheelset - Clincher Mercury Wheels M3 Carbon Disc Road Wheelset - Clincher
It's easy to get caught up in the Europro kerfluffle around disc brakes and heated discussions of their place in the peloton, but one ride on that new disc-equipped steed and you'll understand why discs are the way of the future with powerful modulation that far outpaces even the best rim brakes on the market. Although you're definitely on board with discs, you're not as stoked on the stock wheels your bike arrived with and it's time to add a bit of carbon bling in the shape of Mercury Wheels' M3 Carbon Disc Road Clincher Wheelset.The M3's 30mm depth strikes an all-purpose balance between straight-line speed and crosswind stability while remaining light enough to satisfy our high-mountain climbing ambitions. At first glance, the 16mm internal width may sounds paltry compared to the ever-more-mammoth current rim width trends, but falls right in line with recommendations for an ideal width to house the 25 and 28mm tires so commonly found within the peloton. That 16mm rim is also compatible with 23mm tires, allowing the traditionalists among us to make the jump to disc without also having to change tire type.

While the UCI sorts out its rules around discs, the mortals among us can take full advantage of the powerful modulation and confident stopping that accompany disc-equipped road bikes. Even better, wheelsets like Mercury Wheels' M5 Carbon Disc Road Clincher Wheelset allow you to harness all those braking advantages while also gaining a big dose of aerodynamic speed. The M5's 55mm depth is purpose built for forward speed, commonly touted as the ideal profile to serve as an all-around wheelset for those of us who live in all but the most mountainous of terrain. You'll sacrifice a bit of climbing prowess for that depth, but the M5 makes up for it in spades when you hit the flats and leave the low-profile featherweights in the dust.The rim width is also worth a mention, because at first glance, the 16mm internal width is narrow compared to the current trends racing towards ever wider rims. However, it falls right in line with recommendations for an ideal platform to house the 25mm tires so commonly found within the peloton. That 16mm rim is also compatible with 23mm tires, allowing the traditionalists among us to make the jump to disc without also having to also adjust to a new tire type.

Michelin Power All-Season Tire - Clincher Michelin Power All-Season Tire - Clincher
Michelin's long-awaited update to the aging monarch of its road tire line justifies its slow arrival with a host of gains over its Pro4 predecessor. The Power line consists of four tires: Competition, Endurance, All-Season, and Protection Plus, each constructed using a slightly different composition, with a different type of riding in mind. The Power All-Season Clincher counts wet, slick roads as its preferred riding surface, so if a day of training through rain or fog is just another day for you, the All-Season's focus on traction over low rolling resistance will fit your everyday routine well. Michelin uses a new resin in the All-Season's Grip Compound, which gives the tire a claimed 15% improvement on slippery surfaces than its preceding Pro4 wet-condition tire. The resin does add some weight to the design, but when considering the material's ability to increase grip on messy, slippery surfaces at low temperatures, while offering gains in puncture resistance and longevity, the weight increase doesn't come close to overshadowing the benefits. The tire's wet-road pedigree is also rooted in a new tread profile, which boasts better side grip and a progressive tread void.

Michelin Power Endurance Tire - Clincher Michelin Power Endurance Tire - Clincher
New not only in name but in function, Michelin's Power Endurance Clincher Tire line replaces its Pro4 tire line for 2016 and boldly promises quantifiable improvements in rolling resistance, puncture protection, grip, and overall longevity. The line comprises four tires, including the Competition, Endurance, All-Season, and Protection Plus, with each offering a slightly different blend of features suited to different riding situations. As its name suggests, the Endurance Clincher Tire addresses longevity and puncture protection the most, relying on Michelin's brand new X-Miles rubber compound to stand up to less-than-ideal road conditions so that you don't have to wince and prepare for the worst every time you ride along a shoulder shimmering with unavoidable shards of glass. According to Michelin, the difference measures a 20% improvement, which is further complemented by an all-new tread design for this year known as Grip Design. Though the goal with the Endurance was improved durability, Michelin didn't want it to come at the expense of grip and speed, so the new tread profile aims to provide confidence-inspiring grip around the corners and along winding descents. The Endurance manages to strike a valuable balance for cyclists who spend their time riding in variable road conditions but for whom speed is still an important factor, offering a faster ride than the Protection Plus and All-Season Tires, but a longer-lasting, more dependable one than the Competition.

Michelin Power Protection + Tire - Clincher Michelin Power Protection + Tire - Clincher
You treat your road bike like it can ride over just about any road surface, and for the most part, it can. Though you've been tempted towards the gravel path, you've stuck with your tried-and-true road geometry, and weathered the consequences of choosing to ride on torn-up, rutted, chip-sealed roads to enjoy the pastoral scenes and rolling rural hillsides to which they often lead. Because of this, you spend just about as much time stopped on the shoulders of those roads changing flats as you do riding them, and if you'd like to change that pattern, investing in Michelin's brand new Power Protection Plus Clincher Tire would make a good place to start. As the long-awaited successor to Michelin's aging Pro4 line, Power delivers four brand new road tire options, each situated neatly in a discipline-specific category but with the entire line displaying improvements in grip, rolling resistance, and puncture protection. Michelin designed the Protection Plus to be the go-to tire for your rides along the most neglected back roads, constructing it with a resin-reinforced rubber compound known as Bi-Compound, then reinforcing it with protection in the form of its Bead-to-Bead Protek technology and beefed-up sidewalls. This composition, according to Michelin, gives the Protection Plus 20% more flat-resisting puncture protection than any of the brand's other tires, past or present, and though many have assumed the Protection Plus was designed to be a gravel tire, Michelin insists that was created for use on the roads. Like the rest of the Power line, it does enjoy improvements to rolling resistance and grip, but the flat resistance is the shining achievement of this model.

Osymetric O-14 4 Arm Chainring 110mm BCD Osymetric O-14 4 Arm Chainring 110mm BCD
With the introduction of testing power and measuring exact watts created in various phases of the pedal stroke, cyclists have been looking for ways to reap every watt possible out of every degree. Osymetric has the latest theory in how to transfer the most power from your legs to the drivetrain with its dual-cam-designed chainrings. Essentially, even though cyclists are taught to "round out" their pedal strokes, very few actually are able to fully execute it well. And while an ovalized ring maximizes power for part of the stroke, the dual-cam more effectively minimizes the dead spot in the pedal stroke. The Osymetric chainring is the brainchild of French engineer Jean-Louis Talo. The radically-shaped chainrings use a dual-cam design, with each cam lobe corresponding to the most powerful part of the pedal stroke: the downstroke. The design increases the gear inches of the chainring at the point where you're able to apply the most force, but as you transition to your least powerful part of the stroke, or dead spot, the chainring reduces in size to speed you back into the power part of the stroke. For instance, an Osymetric 52-tooth chainring would be similar to a 55-tooth in the largest portion of the cam, then gradually reducing to a 49-tooth over the dead spot. This translates to a claimed 3% increase in speed. As a note, to install the chainrings, you'll need to make adjustments to the derailleur height and width with the included screw. And you'll also need to spend time fine tuning the rear derailleur. The first ride may seem a bit awkward, but after a few times out you'll feel more power in your stroke and be less aware of any inconsistencies in chainring shape. The O-14 is for the new four-arm Shimano Dura-Ace and Ultegra cranksets. They are available as small and large chainrings in 38t, 42t, 50t, 52t, and 54t.

Osymetric O-14 5-Arm Chainring 130mm BCD Osymetric O-14 5-Arm Chainring 130mm BCD
One of the key ways to maximize power to the drivetrain is to learn to pedal efficiently, or to not pedal in "squares." The most powerful pedal strokes have equal pressure applied to the pedals throughout the entire 360 degrees. Osymetric recognized that the perfect pedal stroke is difficult for even the most skilled professional to perform, so its dual cam chainrings were designed to address the deficiencies in pedal stroke. The first thing you'll notice about the chainring is that it has an odd shape. The Osymetric chainring is the brainchild of French engineer Jean-Louis Talo. The chainrings use a dual-cam design, with each cam lobe corresponding to the most powerful part of the pedal stroke: the downstroke. This gives it the unmistakable square/oblong shape. The design increases the gear inches of the chainring at the point where you're able to apply the most force, but as you transition to your least powerful part of the stroke, or dead spot, the chainring reduces in size to speed you back into the power part of the stroke. This is different from an ovalized chainring that merely adds two teeth to maximize stroke in the power phase. An Osymetric 52-tooth chainring would be similar to a 55-tooth in the largest portion of the cam, then gradually reducing to a 49-tooth over the dead spot. To install the chainrings, you'll need to make adjustments to the derailleur height and width, with the included screw. And you'll also need to spend time fine tuning the rear derailleur. The first ride may seem a bit awkward, but after a few times out you'll feel more power in your stroke and be less aware of any inconsistencies in chainring shape. The Osymetric O-14 5-Arm Chainring fits any crankset with a 130mm BCD. It is available in 42t, 44t, 52t, 54t, and 56t.

Profile Design 1/ThirtyFive Road Handlebar Profile Design 1/ThirtyFive Road Handlebar
Ideally, the drops of a handlebar should be parallel with the ground. According to Profile Design, the reason why many of us break that sacred covenant is that, as frame geometries and handlebar shapes have evolved, those of us who prefer a level transition from the flats to the hoods have found ourselves victim to ever rising bars -- often at the expense of ideal positioning in the drops. Profile Design's 1/ThirtyFive Road Handlebar aims to address this, bringing the hoods in line with the tops and the drops in line with the ground. The 1/ThirtyFives come out level at tops and drops because of Profile Design's Drop Reach Variant (Drive) Metric. Drive involves triangulating the drop angle by using the flats and reach, establishing a shape that manages to hit the mark at both ends without sacrificing the ideal angle to ride forward in the drops. The shape maintains comfortable stability whether you're hanging lazily onto the ends during a long day in the wind, sitting up on the hoods while navigating through the bunch, or torqueing on that sweet spot in the drops to maximize power and control while hammering. The bar's name, 1/ThirtyFive, designates its Drive of 135mm. This size combines an 80mm reach with a 148mm drop, dimensions that we're used to seeing either on heavily shaped ergo bars (the shallow reach) or huge, sweeping rounded bars (the generous drop). The 1/ThirtyFive's Drive Metric is Profile's largest, meant for riders with wider palms to ensure that the forward stretch of the drops is long enough to provide a firm, secure platform for intense efforts when control is of the utmost importance.

Profile Design 1/Twenty Road Handlebar Profile Design 1/Twenty Road Handlebar
If you prefer your bars with a slight upward rotation, then rest assured that you're not alone. Rotating the bars up can level the slope from flats to hoods, but it does often come at the expense of steep drops that aren't as stable as they would be if the bars were rotated forward. The short reach and generous drop of the 1/Twenty Road Handlebar address this by using Profile Design's Drop Reach Variable (Drive) Metric in order to keep the hood slope level, the bar ends parallel to the ground, and the sweet spot in the drops accessible, stable, and -- most importantly -- powerful. The 1/Twenty of the bar's title designates its Drive Variable of 120mm. This size entails a 75mm reach with a 137mm drop, dimensions that we're used to seeing either on heavily shaped ergo bars (the shallow reach) or huge, sweeping rounded bars (the generous drop). The 1/Twenty's Drive Metric is Profile's medium option, meant for riders with Goldilocks palms (not too big; not too small) to ensure that the forward position of the drops provides a secure platform during sprints that's ideally sized for the majority of cyclists.

Profile Design 1/ZeroFive Road Handlebar Profile Design 1/ZeroFive Road Handlebar
The reach and drop of Profile Design's 1/ZeroFive Road Handlebar describe a study in contrasts. The 70mm reach is reminiscent of shallow, compact ergo bars, while the 122mm drop reminds us of a more standardly proportioned ergo model. The combination of the two, when combined with Profile's Drop Reach Variable (Drive) Metric shaping, effectively nets the best of both worlds: a flat transition from flats to hoods that doesn't require you to tilt your bars up to the point where the drops are unusable. While the two bars in Profile's line with large Drive Metrics (120 and 135mm) have more pronounced variations in drop and reach, the 1/ZeroFive's relatively modest Drop Metric of 105mm still results in a profile that outdoes the usual ergonomically shaped compact bars with comfortable stability whether you're hanging lazily onto the ends during a long day in the wind, sitting up on the hoods while navigating through the bunch, or torquing on that sweet spot in the drops to maximize power and control while hammering.

Profile Design 38/TwentyFour Carbon Clincher Disc Wheel Profile Design 38/TwentyFour Carbon Clincher Disc Wheel
Back in the '90s, Profile Design was primarily involved in creating aero bars and wind-cutting accessories for triathlon bikes. Since then, they've been busy in developing cutting-edge wheels for road cycling and racing applications. Case in point, the 38/TwentyFour Carbon Clincher Disc Wheel by Profile Design is a speedy workhorse that sets PRs on your favorite segments with its impressive balance of streamlined aerodynamics, unbelievable power transfer, and relatively lightweight construction. 6-bolt disc hubs deliver reliable stopping power during sustained descents and soaking-wet conditions, which is something that traditional carbon wheels have struggled with in the past. Profile's engineers settled upon the 38/TwentyFour's rim depth and width profile from extensive wind tunnel testing in conjunction with Computational Fluid Dynamics. Because wind tunnel testing alone isn't necessarily transferable to real-world situations where wind speed and direction are constantly in flux, Profile Design worked with Speed Theory to simulate the historical wind patterns and angles of popular race courses while riding the 38/TwentyFour. After simulating the predominant wind speeds and patterns of popular race venues, Profile then tried out different width and depth profiles with Computational Fluid Dynamics to achieve an optimal balance between slippery aerodynamics and stable handling in tricky crosswinds. The result is a wheel that's 38-millimeters deep and 24-millimeters wide externally, giving you just enough aerodynamics to shave precious seconds on the flats while maintaining a relatively low weight on the climbs and handling crosswinds without the dreaded "sail effect."Looking to the hubs, you'll find the use forged and machined 6061-T6 aluminum with a shot peened anodized finish that's 18 percent stronger than standard aluminum freehubs.

Profile Design 38/TwentyFour Carbon Clincher Wheelset Profile Design 38/TwentyFour Carbon Clincher Wheelset
If you walked into any high-end bike shop in the '90s, you'd see the Profile Design logo prominently displayed as the go-to brand for aero bars and wind-cutting triathlon accessories. Since then, Profile has expanded its offerings with additional componentry, including wheels. With the 38/TwentyFour Carbon Clincher Wheelset, Profile combines its expertise in aerodynamics with a reputation for durability to bring you a solid all-rounder that can climb, corner, and get down the road fast. Profile engineers camped out in the wind tunnel with Computation Fluid Dynamics specialists to analyze testing data and determine the best rim shape for low drag and solid crosswind handling. To replicate real-world situations, they even mapped out weather data from recent high-level cycling and triathlon events to recreate those wind conditions in the tunnel. The result of all this work is a wheel that isn't just fast in the virtual lab world -- it's fast out on the pavement in real-world wind conditions. The specs are in the name with these wheels. The 38/TwentyFours feature a 38mm rim that gives you just enough aerodynamics to slice through the wind while maintaining a relatively low profile in crosswinds. They also feature slightly curved sides with a rounded spoke-facing edge that manages the lateral force of crosswinds for better stability than traditional airfoil rims. Profile uses its own high Tg point resin on the carbon braking surface for a claimed 30% increase in heat capacity compared to other high Tg resins used in the industry. This means, in theory, that these wheels have better, more consistent braking across changing weather conditions and long descents than the competition. So put away the hourly temperature reports and radar forecasts and get out for a ride with confidence that you'll be able to stop when you need to in any weather without risking a catastrophic rim failure.

Profile Design 58/TwentyFour Carbon Clincher Disc Wheel Profile Design 58/TwentyFour Carbon Clincher Disc Wheel
Given Profile Design's notoriety for producing aerodynamic triathlon components, it makes perfect sense they'd create the 58/TwentyFour Carbon Clincher Disc Wheel for riders seeking to shave every second from spirited training rides and competitive racing scenarios with their medium-dish profile that balances aerodynamics with crosswind stability. Carbon construction ups the ante in stiffness, ensuring every watt of available power is transferred into forward motion. And since disc brakes have become increasingly popular with road cyclists and triathletes alike, this particular wheel accommodates the powerful stopping force of 6-bolt disc rotors. Extensive research and design went into the 58/TwentyFour's rim depth and width profile, with Profile engineers using a mixture of wind tunnel testing and Computational Fluid Dynamics in testing the wheel's aerodynamic prowess. And because wind tunnel testing alone isn't necessarily transferable to real-world situations where wind speed and direction are constantly in flux, Profile Design worked with Speed Theory to simulate the historical wind patterns and angles of popular race courses in relation to the 58/TwentyFour's wheel depth and width profile. After simulating the predominant wind speeds and patterns of popular race venues, Profile then tried a number of different rim widths and depths for their particular wheel applications. In this case, they settled upon a 58-millimeter deep carbon wheel for an obvious aero advantage with a slightly curved side and rounded spoke-facing edge that manages lateral crosswinds better than a traditional airfoil rim. As for the 24. 5-millimeter rim width, Profile found this width straightens the tire's sidewalls, subsequently creating a plusher ride with less rolling resistance. Looking at the hub, Profile uses a forged and machined 6061-T6 aluminum hub with a shot peened anodized finish that's 18 percent stronger than standard aluminum freehubs. The shot peened anodized finish p...

Profile Design ADL Aluminum Clip-on Aerobars Profile Design ADL Aluminum Clip-on Aerobars
One of the first cyclists we noticed using extensions with an S-bend shape on bars like the Profile Design ADL Aluminum Clip-on Aerobars in a time trial was Ullrich, the German powerhouse and perennial Tour runner-up. That's no surprise, as riders like Ullrich built their careers on producing disproportionate watts, and the ultimate purpose behind S-bend bars is to provide more leverage while you're stretched out on the extensions. It's true that this focus on force comes at the cost of cornering and precise handling when compared to traditional, upturned aerodynamic extensions, but that's what bullhorn brake extensions or hoods on a drop bar are for. During long, non-technical grinds against the clock or triathlons when pure power is the deciding factor, the S-bend is the way to go.

Profile Design Airstryke Aluminum Clip-on Aerobars Profile Design Airstryke Aluminum Clip-on Aerobars
We can identify two primary problems with clip-on bars. First, when fitting them on standard road drop bars for a triathlon or time trial, we have to adjust the whole geometry of our cockpit. Second, they cover the flats. The Airstryke Aluminum Clip-on Aerobars take care of the second issue by including Profile Design's ZB Flip-Up brackets, which use springs to keep the armrests elevated while you're not resting on them. This preserves access to your drop or basebar's flats without sacrificing the benefits of clip-on aerobar extensions. As for the cockpit adjustments, we're afraid you're on your own, though we do know at least one athlete who slides her saddle forward a random distance and calls it good.

Profile Design Aluminum Aerobar Extension Profile Design Aluminum Aerobar Extension
Profile Design set out to make a collection of clip-on Aluminum Aerobar Extensions that would give every time trial rider or triathlete the option to be comfortable in the aerobars. Choose the one that most closely matches what you want, then clip on and go. These aerobars are designed to be easily attached to a road bike, bringing you closer to triathlon or time trial bike geometry, but your bike will probably require some fit adjustments before you're ready to go.The biggest difference between each model comes down to shape. If you're worried about aerobars that make your hands and wrists go numb, the T1+ was created to be a more neutral option. Their shape gives you room to move your hands around to get the right fit, and while still aerodynamic, they aren't as aggressive as flatter styles. If you're concerned with how you might feel at the end of your race, the T3+ offers the most neutral wrist position of the series and gives you a little more room to adjust your hands throughout your ride.By contrast, if you care less about comfort over the long haul and more about getting in an aerodynamic position, consider the T2+ or the T5+. Your hands will sit low in the T2+, but they were designed with a 30mm rise so that you're not completely stretched out. This year, Profile Design added the T5+ to its lineup to blend the aerodynamic benefits of straight aerobars with a slight ski-bend angle. Expect bars that are the most aerodynamic in the series with just a slight 15mm rise. A shorter extension length sets the T4+ apart from its counterparts, which could be beneficial if you're hoping to not have to make major fit adjustments to your road bike for race day. The extension shape falls in between the flatter T2+ and the more neutral T1+ and T3+ models, so you end up with something in the middle. Each of Profile Design's extension bars fit on handlebars with a diameter of either 26. 0mm or 31. 8mm.

Profile Design Carbon Aerobar Extension Profile Design Carbon Aerobar Extension
Despite their reputation, aerobars don't have to be uncomfortable -- if you're serious about racing a time trial or triathlon, you should have a set. Profile Design's Carbon Aerobar Extensions give you plenty of ways to customize fit so that you're not worried about your hands falling asleep while you're racing, and the series is made up of five models, all made with vibration-minimizing carbon, so you have room to find the right fit. They're easy to clip onto a road bike to get it race-ready, just don't forget to adjust your bike fit after you put them on. If you've spent too much time in overly aggressive aerobars or are hesitantly trying your first set, the T1+ and T3+ were both designed with comfort in mind. By putting your hands and wrists in a neutral position, they have a more natural feel and provide a variety of options for hand positioning. The T3+ is slightly heavier and the most neutral of the two.The T2+, T4+, and T5+ all feature a more aerodynamic-oriented design, with the T2+ using an S-Bend shape and the T4+ and T5+ using a shallow ski-bend shape. While a ski-bend shape is more aerodynamic, the S-Bend provides more variety of hand placement positions, and the T2+ includes a 30mm rise to help with that. At the lightest in the series, the new T5+ functions the most like straight extensions, adding just a slight 15-degree bend for comfort on the ends. Each of the extensions is compatible with handlebars with a clamp diameter of 26. 0mm or 31. 8mm.

Reynolds 46 Aero Disc Carbon Wheelset - Clincher Reynolds 46 Aero Disc Carbon Wheelset - Clincher
The only way that Reynolds could have made the 46 Aero Carbon Wheelset any more versatile for everyday use in the years to come is making a clincher version and adding disc brake compatibility. Clinchers mean that a flat tire doesn't finish a ride prematurely, and since disc brakes seem to be the wave of the future, the 46 Aero Discs Carbon Clincher Wheelset will be party to races and training rides for years to come. The wheels are built around Reynolds' Dispersive Effect Termination (DET) design philosophy. DET begins at the NACA-shaped rim's bed with a maximum width of 26. 2mm, which brings the rim up to the tire's width. There are myriad benefits to this design, including reduced turbulence, increased lateral rigidity, and a more comfortable ride. The Aero's shape smooths airflow over the wheel and reattaches it at the rear of the rim. This alleviates the stalled pockets of dead trailing air that create a backward pull on the rim. It also nets aerodynamic gains at angles between 0 and 20 degrees of yaw, which is where you spend 95% of your riding time. Reynolds' rim-shaping DET also distributes side forces (read: cross wind) so that the center of pressure is pushed beyond the center of mass. This means the pulling due to cross wind and the like is much less pronounced. All told, the Aero's handling "sweet spot" is extended to a window of 7. 5 degrees higher than the competition. Since it's kind of jargon-laden information, you may not be interested to know that DET's center of pressure maximizes the forward thrust vector (a quantity that has direction and magnitude) and the rim shape increases lift and decreases turbulent flow. But you'll definitely enjoy the forward thrust that all that jargon translates into on the bike. Essentially, this system works almost like a turbine, generating extra watts of propulsion from the wind. The legendary DT Swiss internals of the Reynolds hubs mean that those watts won't be wasted.

Disc brakes and dropbars are no longer mutually exclusive. More and more road bikes are coming equipped with them and let's face it, it makes sense. Reynolds brings us the 46 Aero Disc Carbon Wheelset so you won't lose any aerodynamic advantages or stiffness if you are transitioning over from a rim brake deep section setup. Weight gain is negligible and we can almost promise you that it will soon be forgotten when you appreciate the modulation and power while descending and in all-weather conditions. A tubeless ready rim bed lets you enjoy running lower pressure and virtually eliminate pinch and puncture related flats.The wheels are built around Reynolds' Dispersive Effect Termination (DET) design philosophy. DET begins with a NACA-shaped rim profile with an external width of 28mm blending well with today's current crop of wider tubeless tires. The additional benefits include reduced turbulence for better stability, increased lateral rigidity, and a more comfortable ride. The Aero's shape smooths airflow over the wheel and re-attaches it at the rear of the rim which reduces drag, allowing you to ride faster with less effort.In real world riding scenarios and racing, you'll see wind yaw angles between 0 and 20 degrees. Reynolds' rim-shaping DET design is built to excel at these angles and helps distributes side forces, also known as cross wind, reducing the pressure pushing at the center of mass. This translates to less violent tugging at the bar so you can descend with confidence and spend less energy correcting your bike as it's more apt to stay on course, while other riders are fighting to stay out of the gutter.Center lock hubs offer quick and solid rotor mounting and will work with 6-bolt rotors with adapters. Legendary Industry Nine hubs with 3-pawl, 6-degree engagement help you get the jump on the group out of the last turn of a crit and the durability ensures miles of trouble-free riding.

If you're gonna go deep on deep-dish carbon hoops, you may as well not hold back. The tubeless, disc brake-equipped 65 Aero Carbon Wheelset isn't Reynolds' deepest option in the Aero family (hi there, Aero 80), but it does represent the ceiling that a lot of crit and circuit-race specialists balk at surpassing. The TT specialists and run/bike/swim crowd may disagree, but for the dedicated roadie, 65mm is about as deep as it gets. Before going any further down the aerodynamic rabbit hole, though, consider the freehub. The new Aero wheels mark a significant departure for Reynolds. We've come to expect DT Swiss hubs on Reynolds wheels; however, these are built with Industry Nine hubs, instead, which up the engagement factor from "responsive" to "virtually instantaneous." Going with I9 also means that the hubs and the rims are all manufactured stateside--the hubs in North Carolina; the rims in Northern Utah. But now to return to those deep rims. Aerodynamics aren't just about depth, of course--the science of speed runs, um, deeper than depth. Case in point: Reynolds' Dispersive Effect Termination (DET). DET Begins at the rim bed with a maximum width of 26. 2mm, which brings the rim up to the tire's width and creates a generous cradle to glue it to. There are myriad benefits to this design, included reduced turbulence, which causes drag, and increased lateral rigidity and comfort. The rim's deep dish is shaped in a NACA-profiled, tapered V-shape that ends with a sharp trailing edge. The Aero's shape smooths airflow over the wheel, and when that air passes the spoke face, it's easily reattached at the rear of the rim to reduce stall. DET also means that this stall-free sweet spot extends to 20 degrees of yaw--a full 7. 5 degrees more than the competition. It's rare to have a real-world circumstance of straight-on air resistance. In reality, you spend 95% of your riding time between zero and 20 degrees of yaw with a wind angle anywhere from zero to 100 degrees in relati...

Reynolds Attack Carbon Wheelset - Tubeless Reynolds Attack Carbon Wheelset - Tubeless
As the lightest, shallowest wheel in Reynolds' Performance line, the Reynolds Attack Carbon Tubeless Wheelset sheds some 400 grams off 30mm aluminum clinchers for maximum rolling efficiency. Suddenly, accelerating from a standstill and attacking the steepest climbs becomes less of a chore. Plus, its 25mm rim width further enhances efficiency by decreasing rolling resistance. It also provides an increased contact patch with the road, which in turn allows you to run lower air pressure for a smoother overall ride. The last benefit gained by upgrading to wider rims is increased cornering grip for extra stability, especially when you're riding at high speeds. New for this year, Reynolds upgraded this wheelset to a tubeless-ready configuration. This modern upgrade improves the wheels' smooth-rolling characteristics without sacrificing its lightweight, ultra-efficient performance. Plus, the tubeless wheel-tire interface prevents flats from riding over puncture-causing debris, such as sharp goat heads. The last key ingredient to the Attack Carbon Wheelset's success lies within its CTg brake track, which decreases the braking drawbacks usually associated with carbon wheelsets. This laminate was developed to withstand much higher braking temperatures than typical carbon wheelsets, eliminating the risk of the rim overheating and subsequently failing under hard braking. Furthermore, Reynolds included its Cryo-Blue Power brake pads for safer, more consistent braking performance with their CTg laminate.

Reynolds Attack Disc Brake Carbon Wheelset - Tubeless Reynolds Attack Disc Brake Carbon Wheelset - Tubeless
Reynolds' Attack wheelset has long been a favorite of climbing specialists with its low weight and a rim profile that's just deep enough to still garner a bit of aerodynamic advantage on the flats. With the addition of disc brakes last year and an all-new hubset this year, Reynolds pushes the Attack Disc Brake Carbon Tubeless Wheelset into ever more versatile territory. It makes no attempt to compete on the flats with deep dish time trial equipment, but the Assault leaves most other wheelsets in the dust with its ability to transcend road, 'cross, and gravel applications. The star update for the 2017 Attack is the new hubset at its center, which Reynolds claims has faster engagement and a snappier feel than its predecessor for a ride that rivals the responsiveness more often found in wheelsets far above the Attack's price point. Careful machining allows Reynolds to specify tighter tolerances than stamped hubs, which results in a higher quality end product that will consistently roll smooth and fast when you get it out on the road. As we'd expect from a wheelset designated "all road," the Attack is tubeless-ready, which means lower pressures for increased traction and a plusher ride to absorb chatter on chipseal, gravel, and rut-filled grass fields. The wide rim complements the tubeless-ready profile, allowing improved tire shape for wider tires, lower rolling resistance, better cornering, and a more comfortable ride. The Attack's low weight means less rotational mass fighting you on each pedal stroke during climbs or accelerating out of turns, so they spin up and go up fast to keep you fighting for the lead in technical cross races and punchy, rolling climbs. As an added touch, Reynolds imbues this wheelset with its new waterslide graphics for an extra stealthy visage that just looks wicked fast. We know that graphics won't actually give you extra watts, but there's something to be said about extra motivation when your ride aesthetics are perfectly on point.

Reynolds RZR 92 Carbon Road Wheelset - Tubular Reynolds RZR 92 Carbon Road Wheelset - Tubular
If you've been looking for the fastest wheel on the planet, you've found it. The Reynolds RZR 92 boasts the lowest drag values, the highest levels of stability and handling, and the lowest weight of any 80+mm wheel on the market. In fact, compared to its closest 80mm rival, paired with a rear disc wheel, the RZR 92 saves 20 watts -- translating to a roughly 23 second advantage over the length of an Ironman course. Now, we're going to be forward -- the complexity of the RZR design is deep, but we'll walk through it together. To start, we need to understand the prevalent ideology in aerodynamic wheel design, and to do so, we need to understand drag. What is it' Simply put, it's the restraining force that acts on the wheel when its direction of motion is counter to the free stream of airflow. Now, airflow near the surface of a wheel is turbulent by nature, and when it comes close to the rim surface, it becomes a turbulent boundary layer. This is the start of two kinds of drag, skin friction and pressure drag. Currently, wheel makers are attempting to harness the turbulent layer, reattaching it at the rear section of the rim. The reasoning behind this is that the system reduces pressure drag, but in return, the wheel sees gains in skin friction. However, this is viewed as a positive trade-off, as skin friction has around a ten-fold lower drag value than pressure drag. To maximize this turbulent system, we've been seeing engineers create a constant, rounded edge at the spoke face. For those attempting it, it's been viewed as a leap forward in design. However, Reynolds finds it to be counterintuitive. We'll explain. You see, the science of aerodynamics has developed almost as a case of supply and demand. As aviation technology develops, engineers are forced to develop more efficient airfoil designs, and these designs take the shape of what's called a NACA profile -- think of a stretched out tear drop shape. In recent years, though, some wheel designers have started t...

Rotor 3D Plus Road Crankarms Rotor 3D Plus Road Crankarms
Carbon cranksets might be all the rage, but those of us looking for a certain aesthetic, or certain stiffness, are still inclined to look to well-made, machined aluminum cranks to complete our builds. The Rotor 3D Plus Road Crankarms are the pinnacle of alloy crank construction. They're Trinity drilled, like most Rotor cranks, which relieves excess material without compromising strength or stiffness in the process -like a much-safer drillium. The result is similar to a box-truss bridge, and is as stiff as you'd expect a Rotor crank to be. The 3D Plus Road also uses a 30mm spindle, but thanks to Rotor's work on the bottom bracket front, it'll fit everything from traditional, 28mm threaded bottom brackets to BB Right, to BB30, so no matter what kind of bike you're riding, you can ride Rotor cranks. Additionally, the 3D Plus are designed to accept any kind of rings, including Rotor's ovalized Q-Rings. You'll choose between 110mm and 130mm BCD, but if you change your mind down the road, the alloy spider can be swapped quite easily for the other size. This also makes it play quite nicely with spider-based powermeters, like the SRM or Quarq.

Rotor 3D30 CX1 Crank Arms Rotor 3D30 CX1 Crank Arms
There's a time and place for carbon crank arms; however, it might not be the time you get too ambitious with a bunny hop and crack one open on a barrier. Rotor's 3D30 CX1 Crank Arms are right at home there, though, with an aluminum construction that's artfully machined to shed grams without losing any of alloy's stiff reliability--proving why come autumn, even the most carbon-obsessed roadie will hop on alloy cranks for 'cross. The aluminum 3D30 CX1 crank may not be as light as carbon models, but those extra grams are peanuts compared to the added weight from the beer hand-ups you take throughout the season. The other heavily touted benefit of carbon vs aluminum--stiffness--was rendered moot the first time we rode the 3D30 CX1 out of a sand pit in anger. They may in fact be more flexible, but we couldn't tell the difference. The crank arms owe their combination of low weight and high stiffness to Rotor's proprietary CNC-machining process, Trinity Drilling System. It involves mapping and removing as much material as possible without compromising the crank arms' structural integrity or stiffness. Maybe Rotor could've shaved off more weight, but we're assuming restraint won out because--like us--those crafty Spaniards were unwilling to make sacrifices in how the crank feels under the pedal stroke in order to score points on the scale. To which we say gracias.

Rotor 3D30 Road Crank Arms Rotor 3D30 Road Crank Arms
Our wish list for cranksets is actually pretty short: stiff, reliable, and light. In that order. You're not alone if a little carbon fiber lightbulb just went off in your head, but many top manufacturers still rely on good ol' alloy for the job, Rotor included. The 3D30 Crank Arms are the brand's workhorse racing model. They're slightly heavier than the flagship 3D+ crank arms, but the difference is a mere 29g of claimed weight, and they're still every bit as stiff and reliable. Given the order of our above criteria, you'll understand why we're every bit as enthused about the 3D30 model. So the obvious question here is: what about the weight difference with carbon' It's negligible, at best. Rotor brings all of its tech-geekery to bear on these puppies in the form of a proprietary CNC-machining process called Trinity Drilling System (TDS). It involves mapping and removing as much material as possible without compromising the crank arms' structural integrity or stiffness. Maybe Rotor could've shaved off more weight, but we're assuming restraint won out because--like us--those crafty Spaniards were unwilling to make sacrifices in how the crank feels under the pedal stroke in order to score points on the scale.

Rotor Flow Aero Cranks Rotor Flow Aero Cranks
Rotor's 3D Plus Road crank is a revolutionary design in the world of carbon versus aluminum components. Using Rotor's Trinity Drilling System and 7055 alloy, it is stiffer than most carbon cranks, and it is also compatible with virtually any bottom bracket system. The Rotor Flow Aero Cranks, based on the 3D Plus, therefore is a paradigm-changing crank designed for both road and pure TT bikes. The Flow Aero features the same proprietary Trinity Drilling System (TDS) as Rotor's 3D cranks. This process drills three full-depth holes from axle to pedal, which leaves behind a structure similar in form to box-bridges. This is unlike a classic hollow tube crank design, due to two additional interior "walls" left over after drilling. This gives the crank arms an exceptional strength-to-weight ratio. Unlike the 3D cranks, the Flow features a smooth exterior and a shape that widens slightly as you move from the spindle to pedal. A crank does not fully intersect with laminar airflow while riding. This is due to the fact that the front wheel and fork have already cut through the air and the turbulent air that meets the cranks has less resistance than unbroken air. Because of this, the smooth surface of the crank excels to be even more aerodynamic. It gives a six second time reduction over a 40k TT at 200 watts, and in a race that is often won by seconds, this advantage could mean a place on the podium. Its design is worthy of both pure time trial frames, as well as your lightweight road frame. Please note that the chainrings are not included with this crankset. The QX rings are recommended, though you may use Rotor's round rings if your preference is toward classic shape. The Rotor Flow Aero Cranks are available in sizes 110-170mm, 110-172. 5mm, 110-175mm, 130-170mm, 130-172. 5mm, and 130-175mm. They come in the color Black.

Rotor QCX1 Aero Chainring Rotor QCX1 Aero Chainring
Though it does in fact have "aero" in the title, the key feature of Rotor's QCX1 Aero Chainring is actually its more pronounced oval shape, up to 12. 5% from the road-specific version's 10% ovality. That means it's even more efficient than the standard road model, especially in the high-reward portions of the pedal stroke where you're actually turning over the crank--not a bad upgrade considering this is Rotor's first foray into one-by 'cross machines. Efficiency at this portion of the stroke is arguably more valuable in 'cross, as punching out of corners and spinning up to speed after run-ups and obstacles can be the difference between getting a gap or just getting gapped. The alternating tooth profile helps retain the chain on a one-by drivetrain, and deep chamfers encourage peanut butter muck to stay the hell out of your drivetrain. Rotor recommends running the QCX1 ring on the inner position of a double crankset, but the brand does also offer cranksets and spider adapters to reposition the ring.

Though they're a tad heavier than their carbon counterparts, the Vanox rails remain strong enough for use on gravel grinders, cyclocross, and mountain bikes.

Selle Italia SLR Friction Free Saddle Selle Italia SLR Friction Free Saddle
If you're the cyclist who notices you consistently can't get through a full season without the inner thighs of your bib shorts or sides of your saddle wearing prematurely, then you may be part of the 40% of riders that Selle Italia claims aren't getting enough thigh clearance from a traditional saddle. The company created its popular SLR racing saddle in a Friction Free version, which was designed with a much narrower width from the wings to the tip of the nose than traditional saddles. This shape aims to lessen chafing, cut down on pilling shorts, and improve efficiency for a select group of riders. The SLR Friction Free is built on lightweight titanium rails and is covered with Selle Italia's easy-to-clean Fibra-Tek, which resists wear from the elements over long training miles. Weighing in at a claimed 185g, the saddle's sleek design fits right in among Selle's minimalist SLR racing saddles, even if it is slightly heavier than some of its carbon-railed siblings. The saddle's narrow 131mm width won't suit everyone, but for riders with narrow hips it offers a solution that could save you valuable energy while pedaling.

Selle Italia SLR Max Gel Flow Saddle Selle Italia SLR Max Gel Flow Saddle
The Flow part of the Selle Italia SLR Max Gel Flow Saddle is its most distinctive feature and will probably be its key selling point. If you want a saddle whose anatomic cutout alleviates pressure where you don't want it, then here you go. No one in the game does it as well or as dramatically as Selle Italia. A bit of grippy material runs down the middle portions that remain in order to keep you from sliding about during long, in-the-saddle grinds. Gel padding keeps the contact with your sit bones soft but not bouncy. The shell's 10% carbon construction is stiff enough to support well, but elastomer inserts between the rails mean this won't translate to undo road noise coming up through your seatpost. The Selle Italia SLR Max Gel Flow Saddle is available in the colors Black and White.

Selle Italia SLR Superflow L Saddle Selle Italia SLR Superflow L Saddle
There are few things more important in fitting a new bike than choosing the right saddle. It's often a laborious affair with all the complexity and false leads of a noir thriller, and there's no guarantee that it'll end happily. Selle Italia doesn't claim to have a single silver bullet for saddle fit, but it does manufacture options for riders across the spectrum of fit and preference to ensure that every ride has a happy beginning. With its generously oversized cut-out, wide rear basin, and claimed weight of under 200g, the SLR Superflow L Saddle meets the criteria of serious recreationalists and racers with wider hip bones and a preference for Selle Italia's perineum-saving relief channel design. The saddle is built on a frame of titanium rails and a nylon/carbon composite body that conspire for just enough engineered flex to maintain comfort without a trampoline feel. Selle Italia lays in light padding with an eye toward straddling the same comfort-without-bounce line, and the face is wrapped with a durable synthetic that lets the rider shift through positions across the saddle's wide footprint but grips securely when the pedaling gets angry.

Selle Italia SLR Superflow S Saddle Selle Italia SLR Superflow S Saddle
The Selle Italia SLR line of saddles has a long tradition of durable comfort among cyclists of all levels. The SLR Superflow S Saddle lives up to this tradition and delivers even more comfort wrapped up in a lightweight package to get you through all the miles you want to ride. The Superflow S gets its name from the large cutout at the center of the saddle to relieve pressure on your perineal artery and surrounding sensitive areas. This cutout shifts the contact points to your sit bones, which are far better equipped to support weight comfortably. Say goodbye to numbness and hello to more comfortable saddle time. Selle Italia utilizes strategically placed padding layered over a 30% carbon fiber, nylon-based composite matrix to provide just the right amount of stiffness for support and just enough flex and padding to eliminate hot spots and keep things comfy. Additionally, the lightweight titanium rails double as shock absorbers at the back of the saddle to dampen road vibrations and increase the durability of the saddle. The Selle Italia Superflow S Saddle is available in a long, narrow profile to provide a wide range of positioning options to riders of all disciplines. Riders with wider sit bones may prefer the Superflow L Saddle with its wider, 145mm stance.

Selle Italia SLR Team Edition Saddle Selle Italia SLR Team Edition Saddle
Selle Italia is rarely content with making a saddle and keeping the same design for the next several seasons. This quest to continuously improve its designs led the brand to make a few changes to this year's SLR Team Edition Saddle, presumably to make it a more user-friendly experience for those of us who dream of being pros but haven't made it to the team just yet. One of the major changes from the previous SLR Team Edition is the switch to durable titanium 316 tube rails from the carbon rails used on last year's model, which means you don't necessarily have to use a torque wrench when making fit adjustments -- though we'd still recommend it. Paired with the additional padding Selle Italia included this year, the claimed weight of the saddle increases overall from 140g to 175g. Selle Italia must have felt that weight gain was justified; last year's SLR Team Edition was considered plush by SLR standards, but this year's model offers even more cushioning. Despite the switch to titanium rails, Selle Italia kept the saddle's nylon composite base with a 30% blend of carbon fiber. This composite mash-up provides a balance of support with engineered flex that absorbs road vibrations. The Team Edition includes the same Fibra-Tek cover as last year, which is an easy-to-clean fabric that wears well over long training miles, rain or shine.

Selle Italia SLR Tekno Saddle Selle Italia SLR Tekno Saddle
Carbon fiber saddles have been around for a while, but they typically belong on weight-weenie wall-art builds, rather than a bike that sees dozens of rides a year. Why' Because they have a track record of favoring light weights over comfort. Selle Italia took this as a challenge, and delivered the SLR Tekno Saddle as a result. Building on the same shape that's popularized the SLR, the Tekno incorporates a flexible carbon fiber shell that yields a surprising degree of comfort. Even better, Selle Italia managed this at a weight that's sub-100 grams. The SLR Tekno takes the classic SLR shape, but does away with padding in favor of a lightweight carbon fiber shell. And despite its intimidating appearance, you'll find that it's far from being a rock-hard torture device. Instead, the SLR Tekno is actually quite comfortable, especially when paired with your favorite chamois. Granted, it's not the right choice for loaded touring or casual cyclists. But, for those of us whose backsides have been hardened by thousands of miles of pedaling, the feel is not dissimilar from the original SLR, if slightly more Spartan. The carbon fiber shell has the added benefit of enabling your shorts to slide by with nary a snag, which minimizes chafing -- arguably the largest source of saddle-area discomfort. And while the original SLR is admittedly lightweight, the Tekno version drops the weight to a around 95 grams. Yes, that is indeed crazy-light, especially for a saddle that's intended to be ridden day-in and day-out. The carbon fiber shell isn't the only factor in the Tekno's incredible weight. The solid carbon fiber rails are not only svelte, but strong. Better yet, they provide a degree of vibration damping, which reduces the harsh road chatter that leads to both numbness or discomfort. The Selle Italia SLR Tekno Saddle is available in a 131x275mm size and in the color Black.

Selle Italia SLR Titanium Saddle Selle Italia SLR Titanium Saddle
We have to admit that Italy has a penchant for creating instant-classics -- case in point is the Selle Italia SLR Titanium Saddle' Sure, it's not quite as light as the full-carbon Tekno versions, nor does it have the anatomic cutouts of the Flow line. However, what you do get is the same supportive mid-width shape that's made the SLR widely loved, mixed with durable titanium rails. This is arguably the most timeless option in the SLR line, so we ask, why mess with perfection' The foundation of the SLR is its nylon composite shell, with its 'composite' designation is derived from its 30% carbon fiber content. Essentially, this mix provides the shell with a boost of support, while still providing a natural level of flex for comfort. And, true to its SLR designation, it shares the same 131mm width and 275mm length that's found throughout the SLR line of saddles. However, where it differs is in its level of padding. Selle Italia ranks this saddle as an 'S1' in its Identity Matching System, meaning that possesses a similar level of firmness to the full-carbon SLR Tekno and the SLR Monolink Team edition saddles. In terms of padding, you'll find that the SLR Titanium is relatively sparse, making it ideal for those with small-width sit bones with low pelvic rotation and that prefer a firmer saddle. And for anyone who also prefers a low profile design, the Titanium has the lowest height from rail to top-of-cover in the Selle Italia line (37mm). As the name implies, this version of the SLR sits on tubular titanium rails. And, in addition to being lightweight and providing a positive degree of vibration damping, they're strong enough for Selle Italia to rate them for off road use. Remarkably, this was achieved despite the saddle's weight coming in around a low 140 grams. The Selle Italia SLR Titanium Saddle is available in a 131x275mm size and in the colors Black, White, and Red.

But that doesn't mean it's a heavyweight beast; the SLR TM weighs-in at a claimed 30g lighter than the Flite TM model, putting it in the same weight category as saddles that cost almost twice as much. Part of that weight loss owes to the SLR's narrower profile, which suits it for cyclists with sit bones that sit just on the narrow side of average.

Selle Italia Turbo 1980 Saddle Selle Italia Turbo 1980 Saddle
Long before carbon and titanium, gel and cutouts, and saddles stripped of all but the most essential features in the name of saving a few grams, Selle Italia's Turbo 1980 Saddle was introduced to the cycling world and enjoyed resounding success. Now, the classic Italian brand has brought back its landmark design, introducing new riders to the saddle that carried Hinault himself to victory in five Tours. Radical in its time, the Turbo presented a rare padding profile and a new shape to cyclists. The extra cushioning is concentrated mostly in the rear, and its comfort over long distances is still relevant even in the age of gel. While the shape is no longer considered radical compared to slimmer, sleeker designs, it's far from obsolete -- the sides of the nose have smooth edges and enough depth to prevent chafing. The Turbo sits on aluminum alloy rails and has a soft leather cover embellished with Selle Italia's original vintage graphics. It's far from the lightest saddle on the market now, but at a claimed 295g, it's no brick. Though we often see beloved designs altered or retired in the name of progress, it's refreshing to see a nostalgia-inspiring classic that's as ready to ride now as it was in 1980.

The Selle Italia Turbomatic Gel Flow Saddle carries on as a favorite for riders of all levels with a leather cover and classic Italian style that tugs at traditionalist heart strings. It's not a historical throw-back model, though, and it includes modern shock-absorbing technology that delivers race-worthy comfort for any type of road adventure. The Turbomatic Gel Flow gets its surname from the large cutout down the center of the saddle. The cutout lets cooling air flow through and relieves pressure on your perineal artery and surrounding sensitive tissues. It also increases comfort by shifting the main weight-bearing contact points to your sit bones, which are much better equipped to handle weight. Say goodbye to numbness and hello to miles and miles of comfortable pedaling. Selle Italia adds an extra dash of padding to the Turbomatic Gel Flow compared to some of its other saddles, which provides support and cushioning throughout long rides on less-than pristine surfaces. As an added bonus, the lightweight Manganese rails double as little shock absorbers at the tail end of the saddle to absorb vibration and further increase durability. The Turbomatic lets you turn onto that rough chip seal road winding through scenic vineyards with confidence that it will shepherd you comfortably through the route.

Selle SMP Composit Selle SMP Composit
You--and everyone else--can recognize Selle SMP saddles at a glance, but can you explain why they look so distinctive' Selle didn't design the beaked nose, high back, and large central channel for no reason, after all, and while all the above are common features on Selle saddles, each has been tailored to fit specific riding styles, anatomies, and disciplines. The Composit Road Saddle, for example, employs the same shape and materials as the SMP4BIKE series, but it ditches the foam to better suit aggressive road riders with narrow to average pelvises. The lack of foam makes the Composit slightly less cushy, but that's not a racer's primary concern. More important are support and stiffness, which the Composit delivers via an elastomer nylon and carbon composite shell. The beaked nose provides more space for your twig 'n' berries, and the pronounced center channel relieves pressure on other soft tissue areas so you can sit comfortably without loading up on padding. The raised "whale tail" back gives you something to push against, and the durable steel rails handle years of hard riding without getting loose or losing strength.

The 105 ST-5800 11-Speed STI Shifters feature technology that has trickled all the way down from Shimano's Dura-Ace line, but in a more affordable package. The first thing you'll notice about the 5800 group is that, yes, it does have 11-speeds. Drawing from the popularity of the Dura-Ace and Ultegra groups, the 5800 is now compatible with the new and improved CS-5800 for a full range of 22 gears. Unlike the last iteration of 105, the new STI shifters feature a more compact and streamlined lever that fits into your hand. It is also adjustable for reach so that your hand-to-brake interface is secure. The shifting mechanism itself draws inspiration from Shimano's top-tier groups, with shorter strokes and polymer cables for faster, more accurate shifting. The biggest noticeable difference between the 105 shifters and their big brothers is that the levers are alloy rather than carbon construction. This, as well as alloy verses lighter weight titanium bolts, increases the weight of the shifters a bit from the top-tier models. The Shimano 105 ST-5800 11-Speed STI Shifters come in one color and are available as Left, Right, or as a Set.

Shimano Dura-Ace 9100 C24 Carbon Laminate Road Wheelset - Clincher Shimano Dura-Ace 9100 C24 Carbon Laminate Road Wheelset - Clincher
When Shimano first released its Dura-Ace carbon laminated clincher, we swore we could hear palpable sighs of relief from cycling forums, group rides, and tech geeks thumbing through the glossies. Some we're sure exercised healthy skepticism, as the first round of carbon clinchers had done a good job at inspiring fear rather than confidence, but as time went on, it became clear that, by combining the lightweight of carbon with the reliability of alloy, Shimano had somehow conjured a wheel that rose above the hindrances its ancestors had faced. The Dura-Ace 9100 C24 Carbon Laminated Clincher Wheelset continues the legacy its landmark predecessor established, updated to modern standards and remaining every bit as strong a member of the carbon clincher category as it was when it was first introduced. The C24 may be the least changed member of the Dura-Ace 9100 line, with the only change coming in the form of wider flange spacing, which further increases the wheels' torsional and lateral rigidity by improving the spoke bracing angle. The previous C24 hubs were already relatively wide because of Shimano's angular contact bearings. The bearings' shape allows them to be pushed as far outboard as possible, making the hub a wider platform for the spokes to stand on and making the additional width even more impressive. Notably, and despite the increased drive stiffness, the improved spoke angle has no impact on the rim's engineered radial flex, which means the C24 still takes the edge off of harsh bumps. The rim's construction, which is ultimately responsible for the wheelset's devoted following, remains the same. It involves an alloy body that's extruded and machined to thin the walls down to an almost two-dimensional 0. 6mm wall thickness--about half of the typical alloy rim wall thickness of 1 to 1. 3mm. This obviously reduces weight to a minimum, but it also does mean the overall structure is less sound, so Shimano buttresses the rim with a jealously guarded carbon lam...

As with its C35 predecessor, the C40's weight is centered at the hubs to reduce rim and rotational weight so it kicks up to speed fast. Combine that snappiness with a 35mm rim depth and you get the ideal balance of lightweight responsiveness and aerodynamic speed to manage a wide variety of terrain. The rim's construction, which is ultimately responsible for the wheelset's devoted following, remains the same. It involves an alloy body that's extruded and machined to thin the walls down to an almost two-dimensional 0. 6mm wall thickness--about half of the typical alloy rim wall thickness of 1 to 1. 3mm. This obviously reduces weight to a minimum, but it also means the overall structure is less sound, so Shimano buttresses the rim with a jealously guarded carbon laminate process. The only information that the brand is willing to divulge about this process is that phosphoric acid is used to anodize the alloy, and then variable carbon layers are fused to it in order to boost its structural integrity without undoing the weight gains made during the milling process. The result is a lightweight rim that's as durable and radially comfortable as alloy but still manages to approach the weight and drive stiffness of carbon. It also features an alloy brake track, which means it doesn't sacrifice stopping power in pursuit of weight reduction and also doesn't carry the risk of being distorted by internal pressure from the tube when it heats up during long, hot descents. Altogether, each component of the wheel has been designed as a symbiotic system for the ultimate in aerodynamics, efficiency, and pure speed.

As such, the line between training wheels and race wheels has blurred altogether, especially with wheelsets like Shimano's Dura-Ace 9100 C60 Carbon Road Clincher Wheelset on the table.

This junction utilizes a spine of aluminum against which Shimano sandwiches plies of unidirectional carbon. This process increases rigidity, durability and aerodynamics while keeping the weight down. It also provides an aluminum braking surface will work on command in a variety of conditions, free from the worries and poor braking that can plague carbon braking surfaces.

Aside from some slightly modified aesthetics and a 10g reduction in weight, the Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 FD-R9150 11-Speed Front Derailleur carries over the high functioning precision of its 9070 predecessor. While the new 9150 rear derailler gets all the attention for its mountain-inspired changes, the front derailleur sits stealthily by as the brains of the Di2 system, ensuring fast, reliable, and customizeable gear shifts whether you're off to the coffee shop for the Sunday social ride or hammering the pedals at the pointy end of the peloton. The front derailleur has always been our favorite component of the Di2 series, reinforced by years of mechanical systems throwing chains at inopportune moments on climbs and winding up for sprints. Di2 makes thrown chains a part of history with fast, silent, and accurate chain movement boosted by Shimano's automatic trimming function. This feature adjusts the position and angle of the front derailleur, on-the-fly, and eliminates the possibility of dropping the chain under heavy shifts up or down the chainrings, regardless of how cross-chained that you may be. This function also prevents the mere thought of chain rub for a smooth, quiet ride in every gear combination.

Shimano's new Dura-Ace Di2 RD-R9150 11-Speed Rear Derailleur boasts a sleek profile that practically hides from the wind and finally brings the Synchronized Shift functionality honed in the trail-focused XTR Di2 system onto the road. Enabling Synchronized Shift lets the Di2 system work its magic to automatically shuttle your chain from cog to cog without any input from you and intelligently manage the fleet of cogs at the aft-end of your drivetrain. That said, it isn't a requirement to use, so the traditionalists among us will breathe a sigh of relief that this derailleur also allows the same precise, manually controlled and customizable shifting we've come to expect from Di2. By putting the rear and front derailleurs in communication with each other, Synchronized Shift can actually calculate your efficiency and perform simultaneous front and rear shifts to eliminate cross-chaining and set you up in the best chain line for any given gearing. These shifting patterns depend on the direction you're shifting and the combination you're shifting into, and they're also programmable via Shimano's E-Tube system, so you can set your preferences in advance to ensure that your internally communicating drivetrain isn't conspiring against you. The shifting itself is peerless, as the derailleur always knows where it is, so its travel isn't restricted or lengthened by imperfect cables. It situates the chain squarely on every cog and it jumps between those positions with startling speed. As with other Shimano Di2 bits, the Dura-Ace rear derailleur is compatible with Shimano's rust-, stretch-, freeze-, and generally worry-free E-Tube wiring system. Its modularity makes it easy to set up on virtually any frame, though it does cohabitate with less friction when the frame is built with Di2 in mind.

Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 ST-9070 11-Speed Shifters Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 ST-9070 11-Speed Shifters
Dura-Ace Di2 has become renowned as "the" electronic shifting system to trust. And while it neared perfection, leave it to Shimano to improve upon it even more with the advent of the Dura-Ace Di2 9070 11-Speed STI Shifters. First and foremost, you'll notice that the new Di2 features 11 speeds, which is quickly becoming the number to hit. But beyond that, Shimano looked at the aesthetics and ergonomics of the levers to create touch points that enhance your riding experience. The shape of the levers has been given even more of an outward curve while also growing in length. This allows for a better interaction with the levers, whether you're on the hoods or in the drops. Speaking of the hoods, they are made from a dual-compound rubber composite with a perforated design, but are now smaller and slimmer in shape. Conversely, the shift paddles have been widened for a better interface in the heat of the moment. Shimano still adds in 10mm of reach adjustment. Beyond the aesthetics is the shifting performance. It is here that Shimano's Rider-Tuned philosophy takes shape. For example, with the Di2 9070, you're able to select one of five different rear derailleur shifting speeds. More impressive is that the 9070 is now capable of performing shifts up to 28 teeth on the cassette. To enhance shifting, a more minimal single-wire E-Tube connection is used. This also makes for more options for the inclusion of satellite shifting systems.

Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 ST-R9150 11-Speed Shifters Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 ST-R9150 11-Speed Shifters
As the rest of the industry scrambles to catch up, Shimano's Di2 groupsets continue to set the standard for precise electronic shifting with nearly endless customizability. The release of 9150 is the next evolution of Di2, bringing slightly updated aesthetics and even better shift functionality to your next ride. The Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 ST-R9150 11-Speed Shifters sit at the helm of your cockpit to drive precise shifts exactly when you need them. The hoods take on a similar shape to 9070, but with a few slight tweaks for improved comfort when your hands are on the hoods. Made from a dual-compound rubber composite, the low-volume hood design retains the slightly perforated form of 9070 and makes lever accessibility easy. The lever blades and paddles see an outward curve and feel that's slightly more pronounced than in the prior generation, which makes for a more positive interaction from either the hoods or drops. Shimano also incorporates a more noticeable "click" feeling when shifting, which addresses the almost too-stealthy shift feel that was one of the few complaints we've fielded about previous Di2 systems. Aside from those tweaks, the Dura-Ace 9150 shifters deliver the precise, swift gear changes we've come to expect from Di2. Shimano even claims that this version might even be a little bit faster, but frankly, we have a hard time qualifying that claim when we're out on the road. Both shifters allow a customizable shifting experience dialed to your riding style and requirements, including the ability to dump through multiple gears--or even the entire cassette--with one shift movement. And for the proverbial icing on the cake, when paired with the new 9150 rear derailleur, these shifters are now capable of performing shifts up to a 30t cog on the cassette.

Shimano Dura-Ace FC-R9100 11-Speed Crankset Shimano Dura-Ace FC-R9100 11-Speed Crankset
If you, like a few of us old souls around the Competitive offices, are holding fast to your belief in the soul of mechanical shifting, Shimano hasn't abandoned you. Though the world may very well be moving towards 100% electronic drivetrains someday in the future, mechanical still makes a hell of a case for itself. With smooth lines, elegant finishing, and functionality beyond reproach, the redesigned mechanical Dura-Ace drivetrain calmly holds its own in this brave new world of wires, batteries, and display screens. It's fitting then, that the Dura-Ace FC-R9100 11-Speed Crankset also comes with the double chainrings that many roadies are loathe to abandon just yet. Call upon your granny gear when needed with this lighter, stronger version of a top-end classic, and embrace tried-and-true tradition of cables. Of course, in the even that you do decide to run electro-shifting, the crank's ring profile plays just as nicely with Di2 derailleurs. Shimano didn't introduce any drastic changes to its proven four-arm design, but it did make a few subtle, deliberate changes to bring it up to the most modern compatibility standards. By widening the crank arm, Shimano was able to move the chainline 0. 5mm outboard; this barely perceptible repositioning was just enough to give the crankset broader compatibility with shorter chainstays and the growing number of road bikes built for disc brakes. The gram counters will be happy to learn that beefing up the crank arm didn't result in a change in weight. Instead, Shimano was able to carefully remove internal material where it wasn't needed, strengthening only the most crucial areas of the crank arms and actually reducing weight by around a claimed 7g over the previous generation. The Japanese brand calls this process Hollowtech II, but it could very well be sorcery for all we know. In addition, Shimano also slightly reshaped the chainrings' gear teeth profile to adapt it to the gearing on disc brake-equipped race bikes. As alway...

Shimano Dura-Ace FD-R9100 11-Speed Front Derailleur Shimano Dura-Ace FD-R9100 11-Speed Front Derailleur
Across Dura-Ace 9100, Shimano made subtle, rather than monumental, shifts in design to improve a system that was already pretty damn good. Proving that mechanical drivetrains can--and still should--be improved, Shimano focused most of its attention on the derailleurs, making the biggest changes to ride experience with important tweaks to both the front and rear derailleurs' designs. The resulting Dura-Ace FD-R9100 11-Speed Front Derailleur delivers concrete improvements to its predecessor's shortcomings, behaving far more consistently than the often moody than some of its predecessors, whose changes in attitude could be set off by cable entry angles and cable tension that didn't suit it. How'd they do it' Not by magic, though sometimes we wonder. No, Shimano found a way to redesign the body of the derailleur, equipping it with a new linkage system and integrated cable tension adjuster that does away with the need for a barrel adjuster. The design embraces multiple routing options that its previous version wouldn't dream of allowing, and requires low rider effort to generate precise, crisp shifts. Key big ring shifts in the heated moments of a race are no longer just possible within a strict set of parameters; now, you'll only have to lift a finger. Plus, the derailleur's more compact internals mean that the entire body has shrunk, increasing clearance and eliminating the infuriating cable rub that has irritated many of us to our limits at some point in our cycling careers.

There are two things you can count on with steel frames: they ride like butter and you'll have to spend an inordinate amount of time hunting down a braze-on mount in order to attach any of today's front derailleurs to them. Shimano's Di2 derailleurs are a good case in point, but the Dura-Ace FD-R9150 Front Derailleur Adapter simplifies the hunt. It's an age-old solution to a contemporary problem. Frankly, Di2 front derailleurs are designed to be attached to carbon frames whose seat tubes have such tortured, overwrought shapes that no clamp known to human kind can tame them, so they're all just braze-on derailleurs that mount directly to the frame. This rules out frames with traditional, round, tube-shaped tubes--unless, that is, you've got the right adapter. The FD-R9150 Adapter lets you marry the latest drivetrain technology with your favorite frameset.

Shimano Dura-Ace RD-9000 11-Speed Rear Derailleur Shimano Dura-Ace RD-9000 11-Speed Rear Derailleur
Shimano's derailleurs have always been superlative, and the new Dura-Ace RD-9000 is no exception. It makes intelligent use of carbon fiber, but still relies primarily on its alloy construction to get the job done smoothly, quietly, and efficiently. Oh, and it'll pretty much last forever, too. One of the most significant revisions in the 9000 series was a reduction in the force required to initiate a shift at the lever. Shimano had to move cable attachment points around a bit to achieve this, but it's immediately noticeable when you shift. Shimano's returned to a carbon fiber cage, which helps reduce vibration in the derailleur, and ensures a perfectly smooth shift both up and down the cassette. The RD9000 is capable of handling a 28-tooth cassette, and it'll feel the same as shifting on a corncob 11-23.

Shimano Dura-Ace RD-R9100 11-Speed Rear Derailleur Shimano Dura-Ace RD-R9100 11-Speed Rear Derailleur
At a time when electronic drivetrains are gaining unstoppable traction, we appreciate that Shimano chose not to neglect its storied pro-level mechanical drivetrain for Di2, making careful, meticulous updates that have resulted in subtle, but significant, improvements to functionality. For those of us who still unabashedly believe in the soul of mechanical shifting, the Dura-Ace RD-R9100 11-Speed Rear Derailleur feeds our love for self-actuated shifting with a more protected position and cleaner mounting interface. When redesigning Dura-Ace, Shimano carried over the modifications to the rear derailleur shaping from Di2 to 9100. That involved altering the low-profile Shadow design slightly to better protect it in the event of a crash. This slimmer, more streamlined shape integrates expertly with the sleek aesthetics of the Dura-Ace 9100 drivetrain as a whole, delivering smoother lines and a less utilitarian appearance. Shimano also worked to improve shifting efficiency on the rear derailleur, constructing the pulley to remain a consistent distance away from the cassette for more dependable shifts. The shorter, effortless shift throws on the levers result in crisp chain jumps up and down the cassette all day long with no sign of getting bogged down. Shimano also looked to its mountain drivetrains when reworking the rear derailleur's mount, adopting its Direct Mount interface to add stability and offer more efficient cage alignment.

Shimano Dura-Ace ST-R9100 11-Speed STI Shifters Shimano Dura-Ace ST-R9100 11-Speed STI Shifters
For Dura-Ace 9100's redesign, it was only fitting for Shimano to update its ST-R9100 11-Speed STI Shifters alongside the reworked front and rear derailleurs. When it unveiled Dura-Ace 9100, Shimano subsequently gave a nod of solidarity to double cranksets and mechanical shifting for road. Rather than stubbornly refusing to let traditional standards die, Shimano demonstrates these technologies' ability to transition into the future. Sure, a few of us at Competitive unabashedly love the soul of mechanical shifting, but with the crispness, precision, and sinewy curves of the new R9100 Shifters, the system makes the argument for itself. Shortening up the lever stroke and updating the internal shifting unit were first on the list for the shifters' upgrades, and Shimano succeeded admirably at what it does best: creating incredibly reliable, functional componentry. Quick taps deliver smooth, effortless shifts along the cassette and crankset compared to 9000, whether you're mashing down on the pedals in a race or out for a Sunday hill climb with your ride crew, which places Dura-Ace 9100 at the zenith of mechanical shifting. Shimano waved its meticulous wand over the brake levers as well, achieving improved hand/lever interaction by carving the lever blades into a more sinuous, contoured shape. This shape enhances braking leverage in a decidedly European style not previously seen from the more utilitarian brand, giving you the ability to shave, rather than dump, speed on serpentine descents from the hoods as well as the drops. Further, the brand cleaned up the hoods, sculpting them into a smaller, more organic shape that enhances both rider comfort as well as the groupset's already classy aesthetics.

Shimano's Di2 drivetrain continues its evolution and with the release of the Dura-Ace ST-R9170 Di2 Hydraulic STI Lever & Disc Brake Caliper, an entirely new hydraulic disc brake system comprising STI shift/brake levers and new flat-mount calipers. Previous versions of the top-tier Di2/Hydro levers and calipers were handled by the ST-R785 set, a model that wasn't confined to a group and most likely a place holder until the UCI decided its stance on road bike disc brake use in competition. This marks the first time we see hydraulic disc brakes under the Dura-Ace moniker and we couldn't be happier. Shimano's excellent E-Tube project offers customizable shifting set-up so no matter your cycling discipline, you are fully in control in how you program your shifting. Sold as individual right and left levers, the levers include specific BR-R9170 flat mount brake calipers and hydraulic hose kits. Shimano's Di2 shifting is the gold-standard in which all other shifting is compared, so we're understandably excited that a hydraulic disc brake option now exists that proudly wears the Dura-Ace badge. Mating superior all-weather braking power and modulation with the industry's best shifting creates the most desirable components for your current drop bar bike or your next dream build. The ergonomics of the new 9170 hydraulic lever are nothing short of phenomenal. The lever is much slimmer than before and is very similar to the silhouette of the non-hydro Di2 and mechanical versions of 9100. Shimano also worked on making the clicks more positive, which provides great feedback when operating the levers in freezing conditions with thick gloves, during a muddy 'cross race, or over washboard gravel roads. The ability to integrate satellite buttons for climber and sprinter shifters carries over from previous versions, but the new textured hoods provide excellent cushion and grip when you're shifting at the levers. They also simply disappear when we're riding. We're not surprised...

Shimano Dura-Ace WH-9000-C24-TL Carbon Road Wheelset - Tubeless Shimano Dura-Ace WH-9000-C24-TL Carbon Road Wheelset - Tubeless
Logic prevailing, you'd assume that a lightweight wheelset would sacrifice its durability and ruggedness for weight savings. Well, the Shimano Dura-Ace WH-9000-C24-TL Carbon Tubeless Road Wheelset is here to throw that notion by the wayside. Shimano's proprietary Carbon Lamination technology reduces the rim's aluminum to only 0. 6-millimeters thick without sacrificing strength or stability, courtesy of its fused carbon layers for added lateral stiffness and strength. Although deep-dish rims are all the rage these days, this wheelset sticks to a lower profile 24-millimeter depth for fast spin-up, as well as nimble handling in tricky crosswinds. Its 20. 8mm width adds a bit larger contact patch for greater traction, also allowing you to run a lower pressure for increased shock absorption, especially considering its tubeless-ready design. Additional performance-enhancing features include an offset design that takes into consideration the stress exerted by drive and non-drive sides, further reinforced by sturdy T-nut construction at the junction of the spoke and rim. The lightweight titanium freehub is housed within a wide flange hub for maximum efficiency and power transfer. Moreover, its cup-and-cone bearings resist undue stress from straightaways and hard corners. Please note that this wheelset works with tubes and tubeless setups, as well as 11-speed and 10-speed cassettes (with additional spacer).

Front derailleurs are pretty single-minded, so we were initially a bit bemused that Shimano insisted on making as many changes as it did to the latest generation of the Ultegra 6800 Front Derailleur. The 6800 model borrows design cues from its more expensive Dura-Ace cousin, which manifest visually as a much longer pull arm. This creates more leverage at the point of chain contact than a shorter pull arm, so shifts are faster and more responsive while requiring less cable pull and a shorter shift lever stroke.

Shimano Ultegra 6800 STI Shifters Shimano Ultegra 6800 STI Shifters
Shimano Ultegra has always been the groupset of choice for riders who prefer bombproof durability over the latest in carbon. But, what those riders also know is that Ultegra is always privy to the latest advancements in the venerable Dura-Ace group. The Ultegra 6800 is no exception. Taking its cues from the Dura-Ace 9000, 11-speed group, the STI shifters see a significant leaning toward the engineering and aesthetic of its older sibling. The bulkiness of the old Ultegra shifters has been replaced with a slimmer, dual-compound rubber composite hood and streamlined carbon fiber levers. This means improved grip on the hoods as well as more reliable shifting. Additionally, they now have 10mm of reach adjustment to ensure the perfect fit for most hand sizes. As far as the shifting, Ultegra has upped Shimano's "Rider-Tuned" philosophy a notch. To begin with, the lever stroke has been shortened by almost 13%. This means that you won't have to push as far to make the gear change. Using its Vivid Index Technology, the effort to downshift is now as smooth as to move the gears up. This is done not only through careful design of the Ultegra 6800 STI mechanism itself, but also through the incorporation of Shimano's polymer-coated shifter cables that reduce drag.

Shimano has the technical expertise and manufacturing prowess to create industry-leading shifting and stiffness to weight for the rings and crank arms, respectively. The latter property is owed to Shimano's Hollowtech II arm construction, a heavily guarded secret. Where other manufacturers drill the arms to reduce weight or create two sides and clam-shell them together, Shimano is able to forge the arms and still keep them hollow. As with the Dura-Ace 9100 series, Shimano adds some width to the R8000's arms and orients the spider to more efficiently transfer energy during important power phases throughout the pedal stroke. The asymmetric spider and chainring spacing allows Shimano to put two chainring bolts close to the wider arms, further adding rigidity to the rings for better shifting and power transfer. As noted above, Shimano's excellent chainring engineering continues with the FC-R8000. We once heard a rumor that Shimano owns patents on every single chainring tooth's shape, pin, shift ramp, etc. We're not sure if this is true, but we do know that, compared to other rings we've used, Shimano rings in operation tend to run much quieter, wear at a much better rate, and offer more positive and quicker shifting. The tooth profiles on this crank have been slightly altered to improve shifting and chain retention at the extreme chainlines seen on the shorter stays of newer bikes combined with larger cassette ranges and wider rear spacing. To lessen the chainline, the inner chainring has been brought...

Shimano Ultegra ST-R8000 STI Shifters Shimano Ultegra ST-R8000 STI Shifters
Shimano's Ultegra is often thought of as a budget racer's group or one that was worthy to put on a top tier frame helping to bring the total price down. This latest version performs so flawlessly that unless you are just dead-set on Dura-Ace, you should seriously consider the Ultegra 8000 group. Because it's a serious drivetrain for serious cyclists. The Ultegra ST-R8000 STI Shifters have enough DNA from the new 9100 shifters--themselves perhaps the pinnacle of mechanical shifting--that you will have a hard time separating them as twins. An all new look, larger gear range, and smoother, more precise shifting are the hallmarks of the redesigned Ultegra group. We've always felt like the control levers on a road bike are akin to the central nervous system and must perform complex and precise tasks such as firing off shifts with proper indexing to provide just enough cable tension or slack to initiate a clean shift or pulling the right ratio of cable for controlled braking and rider feedback. This group is damn good at both. A group is only as good as the sum of its parts; however we've put enough miles on this new Ultegra group to realize that it is the best version we've ridden,. The improved ergonomics and super-light-shift and brake action make these Ultegra ST-R8000 STI shifters a perfect perch for Tuesday night worlds or a weekend double century. Shimano's mastery of shift indexing allows it to create shifting action that is more positive yet feels lighter and requires less effort. The new 8000 group is backward-compatible with Ultegra 6800, but to reap the most benefits of the new control levers, we recommend pairing them with the new series derailleurs and brake calipers. Most of the 8000 control levers share material makeup with the 9100 group. A slight increase in weight and a few bearings substituted for bushings are the most notable exceptions. We would place some heavy bets that most riders wouldn't be able to distinguish between the two in back-to-back ...

Shimano Ultegra WH-RS500 Road Wheelset - Tubeless Shimano Ultegra WH-RS500 Road Wheelset - Tubeless
We would never think of riding a mountain or gravel bike that wasn't shod with tubeless tires. The ability to run lower pressures and the increased flat prevention can't go unnoticed. While it's been a little bit slower to catch on with the road set, more road tubeless tires are currently available and the technology, materials, and performance have vastly improved. Shimano has been on the forefront of road tubeless know-how from the get-go and the Japanese bicycle component manufacture has been delivering tubeless road wheel options for over a decade. Adding to their current lineup and bringing road tubeless to the masses is the durable Ultegra level WH-RS500 wheelset weighing in at just 1649 grams and built for rim brake use.Shimano's aluminum rims with their machined brake tracks promise superior braking in all weather conditions. The 24mm deep rim profile ensure quick acceleration and a comfortable ride. The 20. 8mm external width (15mm internal) provides great support for tires. The front wheel is built to a high-tension on 16 stainless steel straight-pull spokes to deliver a responsive ride and increase aerodynamics. A 14mm oversize alloy axle increases stiffness and we are big fans of Shimano's cup and cone bearing system as it has proven to be easy to adjust and maintain and it spins effortlessly. The rear wheel is laced with 20 spokes in a 2-cross pattern on both the drive and non-drive side and can handle high-torque big ring efforts without flinching. The freehub is made of steel which is quite durable and prevents individual cogs from digging into the body.The rim bed is designed for road tubeless tires but is fully compatible with standard clincher tires and tubes as well. Tire widths between 23-32mm are fully supported and the wheels performed very well with our preferred road width of 25-28mm. The max recommend weight limit on the wheelset is 220 pounds.

SRAM Force 1 Hydraulic Disc Brake SRAM Force 1 Hydraulic Disc Brake
The SRAM 1 Hydraulic Disc groupset brings not one, but two major SRAM innovations to the table: the ingenious 1x11, single-chainring drivetrain platform, and road- and 'cross-ready hydraulic disc brake technology. Bolting 1 to your bike effectively turns your rig into a 'cross weapon, and the SRAM 1 Hydraulic Disc Brake system itself is a big part of how and why 1 is the most advanced groupset in cyclocross. To reboot its original road and cyclocross hydraulic braking systems -- which were already ahead of their time -- SRAM pulled apart every molecule of their anatomy to find room for improvements. The lever body, housing the reservoir and master cylinder, was reconfigured for more efficient internal spacing while at the same time boosting strength and stiffness, resulting in solid, consistent performance, regardless of braking or weather conditions. The master cylinder piston itself was also completely revamped, receiving an all-new bore design and new seals, after being subjected to thousands upon thousands of testing hours in every temperature and performance setting imaginable. The goal was absolute reliability, and the new system delivers. SRAM was far from finished with updates, however. The new higher-capacity fluid bladder -- the part of the system designed to maintain braking feel and consistency in compensation for pad wear -- was also redesigned to improve fluid flow, so your brakes feel as great brand new as they do after a season of racing. On the action-end of the line, the caliper spring was re-engineered for more even pad contact and smoother retraction, translating into a more consistency and control in hand, regardless of riding conditions. Finally, the shift paddles were trimmed slightly to be both lighter and more ergonomic, and cyclocrossers especially will appreciate the new shape that allows for greater clearance when wearing thicker gloves.

SRAM Force 22 Front Derailleur SRAM Force 22 Front Derailleur
The latest iteration of SRAM's Force 22 Front Derailleur boasts two properties that we typically don't see together: accommodating flexibility and unyielding stiffness. The derailleur's willingness to accommodate is the result of SRAM's Yaw technology, which has only just trickled-down to the Force level. Yaw is the equivalent of an auto-trim feature that keeps the derailleur cage aligned with the chain as it moves through the sprockets, making for a truly 22-speed groupset by virtually eliminating chain rub. The derailleur's stiffness comes courtesy of the aluminum and steel body. The incorporation of steel makes for an irresistible force to quickly shift the chain up or down without yielding valuable moments of response time while waiting for a flexing cage to finish throwing the chain--think of it as the opposite of the Close Door buttons on elevators. In case you get a little too overzealous with its stiff shifting, the Force Derailleur also features a removable Chain Keeper to help keep you from throwing your chain while shifting in response to an attack.

SRAM Force 22 GXP Crankset SRAM Force 22 GXP Crankset
Beyond the 22 gears, the Force 22 GXP Crankset draws heavily from SRAM's Red technology for more precision and power than before. SRAM lays up the cranks with unidirectional carbon fibers. When placed parallel to each other, the strength of carbon fiber is maximized so that the loads work along the axis of the fibers. This also means the amount of carbon used is able to be reduced, which in turn means greater weight savings. The unidirectional carbon decreases flex, which means every pedal stroke counts for a bit more. The spider it's mated to is a forged alloy that includes the spindle on the non-drive side. SRAM chose to use a 130mm diameter spider, which means you're able to use it with most aftermarket chainrings. Taking the standard a bit further, however, the mounting bolt has been incorporated into the backside of the crank arm. This reduces deflection and ensures no skipped front shifts. Trickling down from the SRAM Red group are the Exogram chainrings. SRAM uses its "True 22" X Glide R chainring calibration, ensuring no missed shifts. They are machined from 5mm 7075-T6 aluminum and specifically designed for the 11-speed system with optimized shift ramp profiles and stiffness.

The Force 22 Rear Derailleur is a key part of the new Force 22 drivetrain, and it gives you smooth, laser-guided 11-speed shifting under even the most demanding conditions. SRAM didn't design the Force 22 from scratch. To ensure precise shifting no matter the gear combination, it took the 1:1 Exact Actuation technology from its award-winning 10-speed Red groupset. This means that you'll pull the same length of cable in every shift, regardless of gear, so shifting stays super precise and adjustment free. More speeds means smaller gaps between gears, too, so each shift is lightning fast. Not content to update the shifting mechanism, SRAM also updated the pulleys and the materials used in the Force 22. The AeroGlide pulley system ensures super-smooth, quiet, and efficient pulley action, and a new elastomer coating reduces noise even further for a more pleasant riding experience. There's a new barrel adjuster, too, which lets you dial in micro-adjustments without the need for tools.

Wirelessly controlling SRAM eTap front and rear derailleurs via SRAM's AIREA communication protocol, the Red eTap Shifter swiftly shifts through the gears without dealing with pesky cables. Shifting is handled by eTap paddles inspired by race cars, so you'll feel seamlessly connected to your favorite road machine. SRAM's eTap logic with positive feedback helps to prevent any mis-shifts encountered along the way. With this system, the left shifer makes it easier by guiding the chain up the cassette. Conversely, the right shifter makes pedaling harder by dropping the chain down the cassette for the harder gear. Both shifters are used in conjunction to change the front ring, meaning you won't have to worry about accidental mis-shifts at the front derailleur while shifting through the rear cassette. ReachAdjust gives you an ideal fit to your hand size, meaning you won't feel strained while shifting through your drivetrain. Carbon ErgoFit brake levers shave excess weight while maintaining a comfortable braking platform when you're zipping down canyon roads and scrubbing off excess speed around corners. Each shifter includes a CR2032 coin type battery with a predicted lifetime of two years when riding at 15 hours per week. And to keep tabs on the battery status, there's an LED indicator that communicates battery life with green, red, and flashing red stages indicating when you're due for battery replacement. Furthermore, there's even an accelerometer that puts the shifters to sleep when they're not in use to conserve battery life.

In ordinary terms, this means that with each shift the derailleur pulls the same exact length of cable, regardless of what gear you're in. 1:1 is simple to set up, it stays in adjustment longer, and it provides laser-accurate shifting. The 11-speed system builds on that 10-speed foundation, boating even tighter shifts than before as we now have smaller gaps between cogs. The Red Rear Derailleur incorporates a clean, air-cheating, low-profile mounting bolt that's made of titanium to keep weight as low as possible. The long upper knuckle clears up to 28-tooth cogs, and it is made of extremely stiff forged aluminum to resist flex, which helps to maintain perfect gear alignment. The inner carbon fiber pulley plate has also been enhanced to resist flex, increasing rigidity for precise gear changes, and its low weight results in a light action. The pulleys themselves were a focus area for SRAM engineers, and they improved weight, durability, and operation. Coined AeroGlide, SRAM optimized the jockey wheel's profile so that the chain will glide more efficiently over the tooth profile as it threads through the cage. This helped sil...

SRAM Red Road Chainring SRAM Red Road Chainring
With its introduction of the Red group, SRAM again proves that it's always on the leading edge of component design and technology. The SRAM Red Road Chainring is an integral part of the Red group and serves as a platform for precise shifting across SRAM's 22-speed gear range. It's also got a sleek aesthetic that builds on the SRAM Red 10-speed chainring design. The colorway title, "falcon grey," calls to mind the swift and precise dive of a peregrine, which is appropriate since the SRAM Red Chainring's improved shift timing pins and ramps increase shifting speed and precision when integrated with the Yaw-caged SRAM Red front derailleur and chain. SRAM engineers borrowed design components from the X-Glide drivetrain technology found in their top-end XX mountain group to create a road version, X-GlideR. The new SRAM Red Chainring is also stiffer, thanks to precise machining of the 5mm 7075-T6 aluminum, which improves power transfer and facilitates faster, quieter, and more precise shifting than comparable chainrings. It's available in several size options, allowing you to maximize your cycling experience based on your specific gearing needs.

SRAM Red Shifters SRAM Red Shifters
Part of SRAM's exceptional Red Gruppo, SRAM Red Shifters close the gap between man and machine with lightning-quick shifts and unparalleled ergonomics. Everything about these shifters has been scrutinized, from the grip texture of the hoods to the separated actuation of brake and gear change operation. They work with SRAM's 11-speed drivetrain and Yaw derailleur found in the Red and Force double groups, giving you the ability to use all 22 gears, even while cross-chaining. Carbon ErgoBlade levers allow for such snappy gear changes, you'd swear they're operating on telepathy. The key to their near-instantaneous shifting lies within SRAM's ZeroLoss technology, which engages the cable instantly without any middle-ground or lag period. This results in zero time spent waiting around for the shifters to do their job, allowing you to burst out of sweeping bends in a higher gear or instantly ease your aching knees on steep climbs with a lower selection. Another superlative feature comes in the form of SRAM's DoubleTap shifting actuation. This unidirectional shifting action allows for both down and upshifts with the push of a single lever, eliminating the need for two cumbersome levers on the up and downshift. Different levels of force separate the actuation between up and downshifting capability, giving you a more intuitive way to shift. Braking is separate from shifting, so you won't have to worry about inappropriately squeezing the brake lever while shifting or shifting accidentally while squeezing the brake lever. Innovative cable routing gives you the ability to cleanly run the cable both inside and outside of the bars, so you can choose the routing that meets your bar preference. Another feature tailored to your specific needs, the independent reach adjust for both the brake and shift levers means you won't have to strain your hands during braking and gear changes. Please note, the Red Shifters include a low-friction cable and housing kit for both derailleurs.

SRAM Rival 1 Brake Lever SRAM Rival 1 Brake Lever
2016 witnessed a rebranding of SRAM's ever popular Force CX1 groupset as Force 1, and an expanded focus of one-by drivetrains for gravel and road applications. With that expansion, SRAM also introduced a Rival 1 drivetrain for those of us pining over one-by simplicity and looking for a more budget-conscious option. Boasting much of the same technology as its more expensive sibling, Rival 1 delivers exceptional functionality for cyclocross, road, and gravel excursions. While the SRAM Rival 1 Brake Lever weighs in a bit heavier than its carbon-endowed Force 1 counterpart, its forged aluminum lever brings with it a significantly lower price point without sacrificing SRAM's renowned precision--not to mention the improved odds of emerging from a one-on-one scuffle with gravel unscathed. The Rival 1 Shift Lever utilizes the same Reach Adjust technology found in SRAM's top-line offerings to provide a customizable reach distance, which keeps the lever perfectly in reach no matter your hand size. The hoods also feature ergonomic shaping for an extra bit of comfort over rough roads.

SRAM Rival 1 GXP Crankset SRAM Rival 1 GXP Crankset
With one-by drivetrains firmly established as a viable option in the mountain and cyclocross realms, SRAM is now in the process of expanding the one-by paradigm to the road with its Rival 1 group. The Rival 1 GXP Crankset sits at the center of the group to guide the chain through the pedal stroke with perfect lines and outstanding chain retention. While some of us at Competitive's office remain skeptical of a sole chainring's utility in more mountainous regions, others are eager to sacrifice a top-end gear or two for the weight savings and clean simplicity of the new options. Whatever the case, this setup certainly shows promise for riders living in less aggressive topographies and may be an ideal setup to ditch the front derailleur and save some weight for crits and time trials. The crank arms are fashioned from forged aluminum for efficient power transfer at a much lower price point than their carbon fiber counterparts. The chainring's teeth feature a distinctly tall, squared-off profile that catches the chain earlier and releases it later in the pedal rotation than standard triangular teeth, improving chain stability and retention. The teeth also have rounded chamfer edges to aid chain retention and minimize deflection. SRAM also keeps b-road adventures in mind by including recesses that help clear mud. The SRAM Rival 1 GXP Crankset is compatible with GXP-equipped framesets with 130mm and 135mm rear spacing.

Alongside the rebranding of SRAM's Force CX1 groupset to Force 1 this year and an expansion of its one-by drivetrain to road and gravel applications, SRAM introduces a Rival 1 drivetrain for those of us on a budget who have been pining over CX1 since its launch. Featuring much of the same technology as its more expensive sibling, Rival 1 delivers impeccable functionality for cyclocross, road, and gravel adventures. Clocking in a hair heavier than the Force 1 equivalent and with a significantly lower price point, the Rival 1 Type 2. 1 Rear Derailleur brings up the tail of this group, facilitating precise gear changes over all types of terrain. SRAM dropped a boatload of technology into this little derailleur to create a pleasant riding experience. Roller Bearing Clutch is a fancy way of saying this derailleur stabilizes the chain over even the bumpiest terrain. It reduces annoying derailleur bounce and chain slap for a quieter, more solid ride that helps avoid chipping your frame on all-terrain day trips. X-Horizon boosts this stability by limiting movement to the horizontal axis, so its large upper pulley maintains constant chain gap and tension across the cassette. This effectively reduces shift initiation force and eliminates ghost shifting, so you'll drop into the right gear with minimal effort the second you want it. Cyclocross and gravel inevitably come with their share of mechanicals, and few mechanicals interrupt the ride more than a flat tire. To alleviate this, the Rival 1 Type 2. 1 Rear Derailleur makes wheel swaps a breeze with Cage Lock functionality. Just push the derailleur forward and it locks into place for quick and easy rear wheel removal or installation to get out of the pit and back on the course in a snap. Last but by far not least, SRAM adds in its Exact Actuation technology. Exact Actuation addresses the issue of different gear changes requiring different amounts of cable pull, which leads to loud cassettes and inefficient shifting. With...

SRAM Rival 22 11-speed Rear Derailleur SRAM Rival 22 11-speed Rear Derailleur
The SRAM Rival 22 11 Speed Rear Derailleur may be a touch heavier than its Force and Red siblings, but it sacrifices nothing when it comes down to performance, dependability, or durability. Its competition-proven design ensures exacting shifting no matter what the conditions. SRAM's Exact Actuation technology is actually a hand-me-down from its mountain bike groupsets. It designates a 1:1 relationship between shifter cable travel and derailleur movement. This simple index shifting helps to simplify balancing derailleur hanger design, tight cog spacing and cable tension to ensure fast, efficient shifting. The derailleur moves through the entire range of shifting via a 3mm movement from gear to gear. The derailleur was constructed from aluminum inner and outer cages as well as b-knuckle. Although these are slightly heavier than the titanium hardware and carbon cages used in the Force and Red Groups, they retain structural integrity and ensure durability. The SRAM Rival 22 11-Speed Rear Derailleur is available in both a Short and Medium cage version. The Short cage has a maximum rear cog capacity of 28tooth while the Medium is able to work with a 32tooth cog. It is available in the color Grey.

SRAM Rival 22 Front Derailleur SRAM Rival 22 Front Derailleur
It was only a matter of time before SRAM's fantastic, pro-level Red 22 and Force 22 drivetrains trickled down into the technological pool that would become the sport-level Rival 22 groupset. The SRAM Rival 22 Front Derailleur captures many of the same design features that make those more expensive derailleurs so great, only without breaking the bank. The most critical element to understand about SRAM's new 22-speed front derailleurs is what they call their Yaw feature. SRAM's Yaw means that the derailleur adjusts its yaw relative to the chain line. In other words, the derailleur cage rotates to align perfectly with the chain in any given position. This not only improves shifting accuracy and speed, it eliminates the need to "trim" the derailleur to prevent the maddening chain rub that can occur toward the back of the derailleur's cage, regardless of what chainring/cog combination you select -- a welcome improvement over virtually all previous drivetrains on the market. All of SRAM's 22-speed front derailleurs, including this Rival version, also feature the revolutionary integrated Chain Spotter, which protects against chain drop, against scratches, and against frustration. The Chain Spotter can be removed, or adjusted independently of the derailleur's position, so it's configurable to any frameset. The derailleur's steel cage is stiff, tough, and has precision alignment markings in the appropriate areas to help with proper installation. The SRAM Rival 22 Front Derailleur's cage has a silver finish, while its hardware and the Chain Spotter are black. It is designed exclusively for use with SRAM 22-speed X-Glide R chainrings and SRAM 22-speed shifters and drivetrain components. It comes only in a braze-on version, with clamp adapters available separately.

SRAM Rival 22 Hydraulic Disc Brake SRAM Rival 22 Hydraulic Disc Brake
The pioneer of road-ready hydraulic disc brake systems, SRAM is confident that taking a set for a spin will leave you wondering how you were ever satisfied with anything less. To be clear, the company will be the first to admit that its first generation of the brakes needed some refinement to be as great as they could be, but all bets are on this new 2015 stuff: leaner, cleaner, and as reliable as any mechanical braking system. The SRAM Rival 22 Hydraulic Disc Brake represents the entry-level price point into the road hydraulic game, but with all the performance of the more expensive systems intact. To reboot its original road and cyclocross hydraulic braking systems -- which were already ahead of their time -- SRAM pulled apart every molecule of their anatomy to find room for improvements and make them even better and more reliable. The lever body, housing the reservoir and master cylinder, was reconfigured for more efficient internal spacing while at the same time boosting strength and stiffness, resulting in solid, consistent performance, regardless of braking or weather conditions. The master cylinder piston itself was also completely revamped, receiving an all-new bore design and new seals, after being subjected to thousands upon thousands of testing hours in every temperature and performance setting imaginable. The goal was absolute reliability, and the new system delivers. SRAM was far from finished with updates, however. The new higher-capacity fluid bladder -- the part of the system designed to maintain braking feel and consistency in compensation for pad wear -- was also redesigned to improve fluid flow, so your brakes feel as great brand new as they do after a season of racing. On the action-end of the line, the caliper spring was re-engineered for more even pad contact and smoother retraction, translating into a more consistency and control in hand, regardless of riding conditions. Finally, the shift paddles were trimmed slightly to be both lighter and .

Stan's NoTubes Grail Pro Disc Wheelset has emerged as a leader of the bunch, ready to tackle almost any surface. Whether you're grinding up long, paved mountain passes, embarking on a gravel metric, or dusting off the speedsuit for some fun in the mud, these wheels are up to the challenge with Stan's renowned tubeless reliability and an ability to handle a wide range of tire widths and pressures. The Grails utilize Stan's trademark Bead Socket Technology (BST), tailored for compatibity with tires ranging from 25 to 40mm wide. The Grail's BST-R shape was designed specifically to handle narrower tires and higher tire pressures for a wider PSI range than standard BST rims. Similar to standard BST, BST-R features low profile sidewalls that provide a better seat for the tire bead and allow for a heap of benefits compared to standard rims with higher sidewalls. When setup as tubeless, BST provides one of the most secure tubeless seals we've ever used while allowing the tire to hold a greater volume of air than standard rims, many of which place the bead 2-4mm below the edge. This interface lets the tire maintain its full shape for a wider, more stable rolling platform. Pairing BST with the ability to run up to 30% lower air pressure than on a standard clincher wheel results in more stability, better handling, solid cornering, and better overall control. These rims are also compatible with standard tubes, and the lower sidewall drastically reduces pinch flat risk by reducing the amount of material present for the tube to pinch against. This means less time with flats and more time turning the wheels, regardless of the terrain. Stan's laces the Grail Pro rims to its new Neo Ultimate hub set, whose smooth-spinning, oversized stainless bearings glide on a stiff, strong, swaged axle.

Built specifically for gravel and cyclocross bikes, these wheels pack a startling amount of value, versus high zoot carbon tubulars wheels, when you look at their weight and consider the tubular-esque performance you'll achieve with the ability to run lower air pressures. Stan's has pretty much written the book on tubeless rim design and the ease of tire install and overall performance are so worth the price of admission, you'll be wondering why you didn't do it earlier. The Neo Ultimate hubs feature five-degree engagement so grabbing the holeshot once the whistle blows and getting right back on the gas after remounting through the barriers will, in our heads at least, have us masquerading around like Wout van Aert in the rain drenched Belgian countryside when maybe it's just a grass crit in the middle of September the next town over. The Iron Cross Pro features Stan's trademark Bead Socket Technology (BST) featuring low profile beadhooks. Bead Socket Technology rims are designed to match the shape of the tire's bead to create a safer and more air-tight interface. BST rims secure the bead of the tire, not the sidewall, creating an air-tight seal while allowing the tire's sidewall to expand to its true, rounder, more effective profile. The result is more traction and less rolling resistance. With lower-profile, less vulnerable sidewalls, BST rims are also lighter and stronger by design, and accelerate more quickly. Pinch-flats are virtually eliminated allowing for a 30% air pressure reduction versus a standard clincher wheelset. The result: more stability, better handling, solid cornering, and better overall control. These rims are compatible with standard tubes but we view this as probably for a just-in-case scenario. For the privateer racer, the ability to change tires depending on course conditions ..

Use it for your everyday training rides without worrying you'll end your ride with numb hands and sore shoulders after feeling every bump and divet in the road. Syncros further addresses comfort by using a drop shape we'd almost go so far as to call a hybrid of ergo and traditional, with a reach of 80mm and a drop of 130mm. These measurements situate the bar towards the shorter, shallower side of traditional. The shape wards off fatigue during longer races or training rides, blending comfort with clean, minimal aesthetics equally at home in a road race or weekend group ride.

Teravail Galena Premium Tire - Tubeless Teravail Galena Premium Tire - Tubeless
All gravel roads aren't created equally. We've had the pleasure of riding gravel in Idaho's dairy country that some combination of local government and enterprising ranchers maintains better than a lot of the chipseal we see in similar areas. We've also been on gravel "roads" that are less like actual vehicle paths and more like the uncultivated slope of a volcano. That's actively erupting. Teravail's Galena Premium Tubeless Tire is designed for the former sort, and its blend of a plush width, supple TPI, and relatively fast-rolling center strip mean it can transition from crummy rural asphalt to graded gravel and dirt with ease, covering the surfaces that tend to constitute most gravel/adventure events. The Galena Premium's 120 TPI AX Casing is not only more puncture resistant than the standard Galena, but it's also a helluva lot more supple. That means it conforms to iffy terrain better, so it grips more confidently when harder casings would simply bounce across bumps, lumps, and very small rocks. These benefits extend to cornering, so the Galena Premium isn't afraid to turn up the speed where other tires would balk. The supple casing is reinforced with a bead-to-bead layer of aramid-powered puncture resistance and, compared to the burlier Cannonball Premium, the Galena Premium keeps the claimed weight down to a respectable 320g. Not climbing tires, sure, but surprisingly light considering their intended terrain.

Teravail Galena Tire - Tubeless Teravail Galena Tire - Tubeless
Taking inspiration from the idyllic gravel routes winding across the glaciated hills of the Midwest's Driftless Region, the Teravail Galena Tire serves up a smooth, supple ride over loose gravel and packed dirt roads. The Light & Supple Casing forgoes a layer of puncture reinforcement in favor of terrain-conforming flexibility, lending its namesake feel when you're pedaling over bumpy back roads. Its tubeless-ready configuration allows you to drop tire pressure for loads of grip and a smooth, jostle-free ride over gravel roads. The tread pattern on the Galena isn't as aggressive as other offerings in Teravail's line, meaning it prefers well-maintained gravel roads and dirt paths over the rough stuff. Think smoother gravel and winding countryside paths over jagged flint rock and abused forest roads for the Galena's intended pursuits. The combination of a tight centerline tread and sparse shoulder knobs minimizes rolling resistance while maintaining enough traction for cornering and climbing up steep hills.

Terry Bicycles Butterfly Cromoly Gel Saddle - Women's Terry Bicycles Butterfly Cromoly Gel Saddle - Women's
When Georgena Terry brought women's specific bike design to the industry in 1985, she shaped a company destined to become a go-to for women cyclists. True to her passion of designing cycling gear that specifically addresses the fit and needs of women, she expanded the line to include saddles, the primary touch-point while riding. And while the company has expanded and grown, and Terry is no longer at the helm, the Butterfly Cromoly Gel saddle remains one of its most popular models. Designed in 1999, the Butterfly Saddle, is by no means dated. In fact, it embodies the best of the research and development Terry has done with both professional as well as recreational cyclists. Constructed on FeC Alloy rails, the Butterfly is 155mm wide at the paddle which provides support for women's wider sit bones. The flatter top means that the saddle will not put excess pressure on the soft tissue area between your sit bones. The injection molded foam is multiple densities, with a stiffer foam on the paddles and softer foam near the nose. Additionally, the Butterfly features a thin layer of supportive gel along the top. Unlike squishy seat covers, the gel inserts are firm and provide optimal support without added pressure against soft tissue. A traditional pear shape, the saddle features a full-length channel with a cutout which also helps to minimize pressure. The entire saddle is covered in smooth microfiber with textured leather. It is made in Italy and features the fine attention to detail that is the mark of Italian design. The Terry Butterfly Cromoly Gel Saddle weighs 369 grams and has a length of 262mm. It is available in Black.

Terry Bicycles Butterfly Cromoly Saddle - Women's Terry Bicycles Butterfly Cromoly Saddle - Women's
In 1999, Terry Bicycles introduced the Butterfly saddle, a women's-specific saddle. For 16 years, Terry has been designing and testing saddles for female athletes and the Butterfly Cromoly represents the best of all the research and development. The Butterfly Cromoly combines the features most sought after by women: support, cushioning, and flexibility. To begin with, it features a wider-than-normal paddle width. The paddle is the widest part of the saddle at the back -- it functions to support your sit bones. Where many race saddles are a narrow 130mm, the Butterfly is 155mm. While professional riders often ride smaller saddles to enable fast position changes, Terry understands, in general, that the touring, endurance, or casual female rider is more concerned with comfort for long rides. Additionally, the saddle features a full-length cut-away through the nose and mid-section. This provides pressure relief for soft tissue. The saddle has also been designed so that it flexes, ever so slightly which aids in protecting delicate areas from pressure sores. The Butterfly Cromoly saddle is designed with the identical attributes of the Butterfly Ti saddle, however, using cromoly rails and a synthetic covers keeps you from cringing when you look at the pricetag. The saddle is perfect for any level of rider looking for a comfortable women's saddle that won't break the bank. The one difference is that the cromoly version is the heaviest of the Butterflies weighing in at 335grams. But, if comfort trumps weight-savings in your book, the Butterfly Cromoly is an excellent choice. The saddle is covered in smooth vinyl with a textured leather back. The Terry Bicycle's Butterfly Cromoly Saddle is 261mm long by 155mm wide and weighs 335grams. It is available in Black.

Terry Bicycles FLX Gel Saddle - Women's Terry Bicycles FLX Gel Saddle - Women's
Professional women racers often prefer lighter weight, less padded saddles than recreational riders. Terry Bicycles sponsored a women's road cycling team for many years and through their collaboration with riders designed a saddle that is perfect for the most pedal-happy, die-hard racer out there. The FLX series is the latest in Terry Bicycles' saddle design featuring a unique shape and lighter weight. The FLX Gel is an intermediate between the softer Butterfly and the stiffer FLX Carbon. There are a few things to look for when deciding which is the optimal saddle for your riding and anatomy. First you'll want to know the width between your sit bones. Easily measurable, this tells you the approximate width of a saddle necessary to support your sit bones. While the Terry Butterfly measures 155mm, the FLX gel is a narrower 142mm. Many riders prefer a bit of cushioning when choosing a saddle. Terry's saddles feature varying degrees of cushioning to provide support for sit bones as well as appropriate relief for soft tissue areas. The FLX gel is not an un-padded saddle. It features a light layer of gel over the multi-density foam base. This layer helps to cushion sit bones that may not be accustomed to hours and hours in the saddle.Additionally, the FLX features a unique shape. Rather than a traditional one-piece pear-shape with a cutout, the shell is designed with an almost complete cutaway from the back area between the paddle to the nose. Unlike saddles that feature a rounded shape as well as a separate cut-out, the full length channel of the FLX provides pressure relief for tissue between the sit bones as well as for sensitive areas near the nose of the saddle. The rails of the FLX are constructed from durable Manganese and the entire saddle is covered in black leather with classic white patent leather accents.The Terry FLX saddle is 260mm long by 142mm wide and it weighs 258 grams.

Thomson Carbon Road Handlebar Thomson Carbon Road Handlebar
As one of the first Thomson products to diverge from their aerospace-grade aluminum mainstay, the Thomson Carbon Road Handlebar represents the company's foray into masterful carbon road bars. Retaining the renowned quality that makes Thomson famous, these carbon bars are manufactured by Toray, which is the same company that produces carbon fiber for aerospace giants such as Boeing and Airbus. To be sure these bars stand up to Thomson's stringent quality-control standards, they're certified to rigorous EN and tested to DIN+ standards. Created from a Nano Epoxy Resin for the utmost in impact-resistance, these bars feature a one piece lay-up. In comparison, the competition often uses three pieces co-molded and glued together to cut costs. Adding extra strength, 1. 5K woven impact ends prevent structural damage to the uni-directional carbon fibers in the event of a heavy impact. The bars themselves feature a mild wing shape along the topside, with a clamping area that's suitable for aero bars, yet small enough as to not restrict hand movement when you're riding along the bar's topside. Furthermore, this subtle wing shape allows for bar angle adjustment without "locking out" your wrists. Additionally, the shaping along the bottom side of the wing facilitates the housing to be taped out of the way, without resorting to the use of narrow housing channels or internal routing, both of which shorten bar life over time. The drop is proportional to the widths, being 137-millimeters for the 40-centimeter width, 140-millimeters for the 42 and 44-centimeter widths, and 143-millimeters for the 46-centimeter width bar. Reach is 78. 5-millimeters. Thomson recommends a torque of 5nm, and they come with friction paste for installation.

Vittoria Corsa Speed G Plus Tire - Tubular Vittoria Corsa Speed G Plus Tire - Tubular
Billed as the world's fastest tire, the new Vittoria Corsa Speed G Plus Tubular Tire boasts revolutionary graphene technology for an unprecedented mix of low rolling resistance, durability, and all-weather grip. The Corsa Speed G Plus is the culmination of a collaboration between Vittoria and carbon manufacturer Directa Plus to create a tire compound that incorporates graphene. Vittoria's calling the result G plus, and it claims that G Plus' inclusion significantly reduces rolling resistance while maintaining the durability Vittoria has long been known for. Clocking in at a claimed 45g lighter than the standard Corsa G Plus, the Corsa Speed G Plus has all the makings of a purebred racer. The inclusion of graphene is credited with enhancing traction, increasing durability, and reducing rolling resistanct, and its impressive strength-to-weight ratio keeps the tire well-suited for racing by reducing rotational mass. According to Vittoria, the combination of G Plus and Isogrip compounds creates a tire surfacing that also rolls fast in both dry and wet conditions for confident cornering and general handling no matter what nature comes up with when you're battling it out on rolling country roads, miles from the finish line. Vittoria claims that the elasticity and carbon construction of graphene creates an incredibly durable tire, but for even more reassurance it utilizes a corespun casing to increase the tire's lifespan. With multiple cotton fibers twisted together to create one yarn, core spun casings are significantly stronger than typical casings, and they don't add unnecessary weight to the tire. A final element that sets the Corsa Speed G Plus apart from all training and most racing tires is its luxuriously high 320 TPI. TPI measures the number of threads per inch in a tire's casing, with higher counts equating to a tire with a suppler ride, and 320 puts the Corsa Speed G Plus at the highest, supplest end of the spectrum.

Most of us will admit to pining over a fancy set of carbon fiber race hoops while lamenting that our wallets won't let us realize that dream. Sometimes in these cases, it's best to avoid the budget carbon woes (Delamination, anyone') and opt for race-worthy, ceramic-coated, aluminum awesomeness with the Vittoria Elusion Nero Road Clincher Wheelset. It's got stealthy aesthetics, so it won't betray your black on black race machine with a bright silver brake track, and it also benefits from the improved braking of ceramic-treated aluminum. Vittoria utilizes a 26mm rim depth up front and a 28mm depth out back to create a light, low profile set of hoops that boasts the versatility to handle a wide range of surfaces and wind conditions while still gaining some aerodynamic advantages over traditional box-rim fare. Across the braking surface, a Ceramic Nero finish gives these wheels a sleek, stealthy look while also bringing claims of increased durability and braking performance in both dry and wet conditions. While we haven't had a chance to test this out ourselves, the finish looks markedly similar to some other blacked-out aluminum rims that have long been lauded for exceptional braking power and longevity. At the center sits Vittoria's SwitchIT hubset, which is most notable for its tool-free freehub removal, making swapping a cinch. As an added bonus, the freehub can be removed with the cassette still on, which means one could potentially keep frequently used cassettes on their own freehubs for lightning fast gearing changes and hassle-free swaps. For the other details, the SwitchIT boasts cartridge bearing and an on oversized rear flange for durable, smooth spinning. Each Vittoria Elusion Nero Road Clincher Wheelset is packaged with ceramic brake pads and a wheel bag for safe storage and transportation.

Although Vittoria is a newcomer to the carbon wheel game, it's burst on the scene with a bang and a whole new way of looking at wheel construction with the Qurano 30c Carbon Road Tubeless Wheelset. Not to be content with a standard carbon layup, the company takes its proprietary Graphene+ (G+) technology and incorporates it into the resin that binds the carbon fibers together for a wheelset that claims supremacy in heat-resistance, durability, stiffness, comfort, and even safe handling in the event of a puncture while travelling at speed. The inclusion of G+ addresses what's proven to be the Achilles heel of carbon rim technology to date: heat buildup. Resin infused with G+ increases heat dissipation by a claimed 10%, which leads to more consistent braking power over time and less chance of heat-related catastrophic failures such as blown out tires and delaminated braking surfaces. The specter of Beloki tends to always be in the backs of our minds during long, twisty descents on carbon rims, so this added bit of reassurance goes a long way toward keeping our minds off of imminent calamity and on the road ahead. In addition to its heat dissipating prowess, G+ boasts a high mechanical strength for durability over rough roads and long miles. It also entails massive claims of a 50% increase in lateral stiffness compared to other compounds, which means lightning fast responsiveness during punchy efforts and razor sharp handling while testing your own limits on sweeping descents. And while most super stiff wheels come at the expense of comfort, G+ also increases radial flexibility to soak up road vibrations and provide a comfortable ride without sacrificing power transfer or that snappy feel. Along the edge of the rim, Vittoria utilizes its Speedlock rim hook design, which is a post-machined, hooked bead design...

Vittoria Rubino Pro Speed G Plus Tire - Clincher Vittoria Rubino Pro Speed G Plus Tire - Clincher
Out of all of the places in the world for a revolutionary tire compound to be created and fine-tuned, we can't think of many more fitting than the shores of Lake Como. It was there that Directa Plus engineered its impossibly thin graphene compound, a virtually two-dimensional sheet of carbon that, after a recent partnership, Vittoria is now using to make tires. While new technologies are consistently touted as "the next best thing" in cycling, the enhanced properties of rubber paired with graphene makes it something we expect to see more of in the future. The Rubino Pro Speed G Plus Clincher Tire is one of the first to feature this new material with a triple compound construction that will enable you to confidently ride through a range of rainy and dry conditions you may encounter on the roads. Out of its new line of tires, Vittoria names the Rubino Pro Speed as its all-around, everyday training tire, without the pricier four-layer composition used on its more premium, race-ready siblings. While the triple compound's targeted blend of cornering confidence and low rolling resistance is important, the tire's real selling point is the graphene. In addition to making the tires more durable and more resistant to punctures, graphene's added elasticity further increases suppleness and speed, making for a tire that wears like a training tire but has the road feel of a premium racing tire.

Vredestein Fortezza Senso T All Weather Vredestein Fortezza Senso T All Weather
The Vredestein Fortezza Senso T is designed for superb grip in both dry and, more importantly, wet conditions. It is the tubular version of its ever popular Senso clincher. Vredestein constructed the Senso T All Weather with its proven TriComp rubber compound. This proprietary compound uses three different densities of rubber to maximize grip and minimize rolling resistance. The All Weather also takes advantage of Vredestein's experience with automotive tires by borrowing their AWS rubber technology for increased wet-weather traction. For improved durability and ride quality, this race tire also incorporates the Curve Control System. Finally, to increase puncture resistance, a layer of polyamide was added under the center tread -- this increases protection without weighing the tire down. The casing of the tubular tire features 290TPI. This means that there is a tightly woven 290 threads-per-inch, which gives the tire exceptional suppleness. Vredestein's Senso T All Weather tire comes in the color Anthracite/anthracite, meaning that the sidewalls are black. They are available in 700c and in either a 23mm or 25mm width.

WTB Byway 650b Plus Tire - Tubeless WTB Byway 650b Plus Tire - Tubeless
Seeing the proliferation of adventure bikes and endurance rigs on the market, the trend-setting riders at WTB decided to make a line of plus-sized 650b tires that would replace traditional 700c tires for off-road exploration. Fulfilling this exploratory intention, the WTB Byway 650b Plus Tire offers a superb mix of bump compliance and grip when your rides consist of asphalt road approaches, fire road climbs, and jarring gravel grinds. The 650b x 47-millimeter dimension is the same diameter as a 700c x 30-millimeter road tire, giving you the ability to swap this tire into your endurance or adventure rig, so long as you have an extra set of 650b wheels and clearance for a 47-millimeter tire. Tubeless casing gives you the ability to run lower pressure for a smoother ride that's not as jostling and bumpy on back roads, as well as self-sealing assurance when you're rolling over rocks and thorns that would normally cause a ride-ending flat. The tread pattern on the Byway 650b Plus is perhaps its most valuable asset for rides that start on pavement, only to see a mixture of gravel, dirt, and light-duty singletrack along the way. The smooth centerline won't slow you down on the road, transitioning to a hatched diamond pattern for plentiful grip when you're grinding along dirt and gravel surfaces. Raised side knobs offer more grip for cornering on dirt, as well as durability for exploring off-road areas where rocks and sharp debris are common.

Zipp 202 Carbon Disc Brake Road Wheel - Tubular Zipp 202 Carbon Disc Brake Road Wheel - Tubular
There's no arguing that the advent of reliable tubeless cyclocross tire technology has brought about increased access to race-worthy equipment and narrowed the gaping chasm between tube-type clinchers and tubulars. That said, tubular still reigns queen for a reason, and even the best tubeless systems can't match the supple ride or knife-like grip and control of a tubular. If you're stepping up to the elites and are serious about results, adding a pair of Zipp 202 Carbon Disc Brake Road Wheels to your race day setup is a smart choice that'll have you fighting for the win instead of fighting against your equipment's limitations. The 202 features Zipp's lowest profile rim with a 32mm depth for an ideal blend of light weight, stability, and a bit of much-appreciated aerodynamics for long, windy stretches and finishing straightaways. A maximum width of 25. 4mm sets a solid, stable platform for wide CX tires. Zipp's wind tunnel testing shows that the 202's 32mm U-shaped profile cuts through the air on flat ground as efficiently as most other 45-50mm rims, with the added advantage of a feathery light claimed weight of 1,330g to fly away from your competitors when the course pitches skyward.The 202 also incorporates an updated version of Zipp's signature Aerodynamic Boundary Layer Control (ABLC). ABLC dimpling involves strategically placed and sized dimples spread across the rim surface to smooth airflow much like a golf ball. ABLC also boasts aerodynamic advantages at real-world yaw angles of 10 to 20 degrees, which compares favorably with many competitors whose minimum drag numbers at yaw angles of five to 10 degrees rarely occur outside of a wind tunnel.

Zipp 202 Firecrest Carbon Disc Brake Wheelset - Tubular Zipp 202 Firecrest Carbon Disc Brake Wheelset - Tubular
Cyclists of the climber species are well familiar with the old adage that "what goes up must come down," and few wheelsets on the market are suited to fulfilling both directional duties as Zipp's 202 Firecrest Disc Brake Tubular Carbon Wheelset. Multi-summit races don't care how fast you climb if poor, unreliable braking on the descent costs you the gains you suffered for in the small chainring. By combining tubular tires and disc brakes with a carbon climbing rim that itself doesn't shirk on aerodynamics, Zipp has built what may be the perfect competition climbing wheel. It goes up, it comes down, and it's even tough (and tubular) enough to race 'cross. Hell, the only races it doesn't belong in are sanctioned events that don't yet allow disc brakes and time trials. While Zipp is mostly known for bestowing free speed through aerodynamics, the disc brakes do something that rim-brake carbon can only dream of: surpass alloy in terms of modulation, responsiveness, and overall stopping power. These qualities are a big deal for climbing wheels, as knowing you can depend on your brakes means you can carry more speed into corners, brake later, and not worry about locking your wheels up when an unexpected obstacle--an off-leash dog at a trailhead, the inevitable sudden motorist, rubble sloughed off of a canyon wall--materializes. It also eliminates any fear of testing carbon brake tracks on rainy descents or during muddy cyclocross conditions. Don't get us wrong, we've had positive experiences with the second generation of Zipp's Showstopper brake track that features on the 202 NSW wheels; however, when it comes to virtually perfect stopping power, disc brakes are all but impossible to match. Though adding discs means that the front wheel requires two-cross spoke lacing instead of the standard Firecrest's lighter radial lacing, the lack of a the structural features required to mount a clincher means the tubular disc model ends up weighing less than the clincher model wit...

Zipp 202 Firecrest Carbon Road Wheelset - Clincher Zipp 202 Firecrest Carbon Road Wheelset - Clincher
Storm mountain passes, rail corners, and leave the competition in the dust with the Zipp 202 Firecrest Carbon Clincher Road Wheelset. While it may be tempting to pigeonhole this mountain goat of a wheelset as a one-trick pony due to its feathery weight, the 202 has proven itself to be a versatile wheelset ready to take on any cycling challenge. The 202 Firecrest features Zipp's lowest profile with a 32mm rim depth that provides exceptional crosswind stability on exposed descents. Its 24. 62mm brake track is compatible with a range of tire widths to accommodate different riding styles and surfaces. The wider rim also gives tires a solid platform to increase stability by reducing the side bulge effect found in tires mounted to narrower rims. With climbing comes descending, and the inevitable fear of overheated rims that so often creeps into the mind of those with carbon wheels. Zipp addresses the issue of carbon rims overheating under prolonged braking by introducing a special heat-resistant resin into the carbon layup to increase heat dissipation and reduce the potential for rim failure. Zipp claims that use of this resin has led to an impeccable record of zero heat-related rim failures in its carbon rims, so you can ride those big descents with confidence that you'll make it safely to the next climb. While the 202 doesn't have the deep rim of Zipp's 303 or 404, it does feature some aerodynamic qualities. An updated version of Zipp's signature Aerodynamic Boundary Layer Control (ABLC) dimpling uses strategically placed and sized dimples across the rim surface to smooth airflow. Zipp claims that ABLC boasts aerodynamic advantages at real-world yaw angles of 10 to 20 degrees, which compares favorably to many competitors whose minimum drag numbers manifest at yaw angles of five to 10 degrees -- numbers that rarely occur outside of a wind tunnel.

Zipp 202 NSW Carbon Wheel - Clincher Zipp 202 NSW Carbon Wheel - Clincher
Not all climbing wheels are created equal, and the 202 NSW Carbon Clincher Wheel looks to leave them all by the wayside with its blend of feathery climbing prowess, confident stability, and an aerodynamic design that Zipp claims is unmatched among competitors with similar rim depths. While its predecessor, the 202 Firecrest, was no slouch, the 202 NSW sees improvements in the trifecta of braking, aerodynamics, and freehub design. Given that it's where Zipp made its name, let's start with the rim. We're always excited about free speed gains, but we're actually a little more stoked about the improved braking. The rims are equipped with an updated version of Zipp's Showstopper brake track, which enjoyed an impressive debut on the Firestrike 404 but has already been improved for the NSW line of wheels. It's still imbued with the same silicon carbide particles, which increase the bite into the brake pads for increased modulation and control in wet conditions, but the brake track's direction-specific grooves have increased in number and changed in depth. The tweaked grooves are credited with even more improvements in braking, and--though Zipp doesn't specifically make this assertion--it does stand to reason that the grooves clear intervening material and help keep the pads on the rims where the silicon carbide can get a hold of them. The original Showstopper netted some pretty impressive stopping across all conditions, but Zipp assures us that the new version is even better. The upshot is you can hold speed longer while approaching a corner, braking later and gaining tiny increments of time with each bend or switchback, helping you protect the gains you made during the climb by preserving your advantage on the descent. You can also feel that much more confident is avoiding darting canines, distracted motorists, and unexpected road debris. In addition to the brake track, Zipp's signature Aerodynamic Boundary Layer Control (ABLC) dimpling returns with a new designation....

Making a climbing wheel used to be simple. All that mattered was reducing spoke count, milling the hell out of the shallowest, narrowest rim possible, and pumping your sub-23mm tires up to 140psi. Zipp's 202 NSW Carbon Clincher Wheelset is indicative of how much the industry approach to climbing wheels has changed. It privileges aerodynamics as much as reducing circumference mass because we now know that--even on climbs--drag is as much of an impediment as the inertial resistance of rim weight. Through the application of Zipp's aerodynamic shaping and texturing, the 202 NSW actually aids climbing so much more than the lightweight climbing hoops of old because it's, well, so much more than the lightweight climbing hoops of old.

Unfortunately, not all of us have the cash flow for those carbon disc tubulars we've been drooling over as we prep for 'cross season, so we're in danger of being stuck lamenting another year on flat-prone clinchers. This year, Zipp steps in to save the day with the 30 Course Disc Brake Clincher Road Wheel. Headlining as Zipp's first-ever tubeless-ready clincher wheelset, this set of aluminum hoops boasts a heap of Zipp awesomeness paired with the flat-resistance and low-pressure options of a tubeless setup. This flexible combination tackles cyclocross, gravel, or road rides with a much more budget-friendly price than its carbon fiber siblings. The rim profile on the 30 Course is heavily influenced by Zipp's carbon 202 rim, clocking in just 8mm shallower than the 202 at 26mm. Zipp claims that borrowing shape and design from the 202 gives the 30 Course better stability in crosswinds than other rims of similar depth. Its wide stance easily accommodates a range of tire widths to accommodate different riding styles and surfaces. The wider rim also gives tires a solid platform to increase stability by reducing the side bulge effect found in tires mounted to narrower rims. You'll zoom across the course with confidence that these wheels will carve through grassy switchbacks with ease and propel you to the next set of barriers.

Zipp 303 Firecrest Carbon Clincher Disc Brake Road Wheel Zipp 303 Firecrest Carbon Clincher Disc Brake Road Wheel
When Zipp set out to create a new disc wheel for the new generation of disc-equipped road and cyclocross steeds, it only made sense to build it on the 303 platform. The result is the 303 Firecrest Carbon Clincher Disc Brake Road Wheel. The 303 has long been a favorite around the Competitive offices for its ideal blend of aerodynamics and speed in a convenient clincher design. The new disc wheelset updates the steadfast 303 rims with a newly designed hubset and additional supporting spokes to perfectly complement your disc-brake equipped road and 'cross machines. The 45mm rim depth on the 303 wheels is better for lighter riders or for those who feel concerned about being buffeted by crosswinds. As they did on the 404 Firecrest rim shape, Zipp's engineers developed a new 303 Firecrest that moves the center of pressure in towards the hub, away from the outside edge of the rim. The tangible benefit is a marked decrease in the leveraging effect of stiff crosswinds on the steering axis -- you'll be able to ride more confidently and faster in blustery conditions. Despite their good manners in cross winds, the dimpled 45mm rims are still deep enough to offer serious aerodynamic advantages. In fact, the Firecrest is 8% faster than the last generation of 303s. Even with this marked increase in shear speed, the 303 Clincher Disc comes without much of an increase on the scales. The rims are laced to Zipp's updated 77/177 hubs, which enjoy improved stiffness and durability over their predecessors. Featuring a new platform and graphics for 2016, the hubs increase bearing protection over previous versions and are ready to roll without any pre-load adjustment. The rear hub is compatible with a separately sold XD driver body, opening up options for a larger SRAM one-by road cassette if needed. The driver bodies can be swapped out without having to re-dish the wheel, making it easier to get back out on the road. Each wheel includes Zipp's new quick-release skewer with a widened h...

If versatility reigns as the most important characteristic for your new set of hoops to possess, stop reading hyperbolic marketing claims about 80mm rims being able to handle any terrain you throw at them and pay attention to Zipp's 303 Firecrest Carbon Clincher Road Wheel. Construction speaks for itself with this wheelset; at 45mm, the 303 is faster than the narrower 202s when you're pushing through wind on the flats, but won't get bogged down on a climb the way a wider rim would. The thought of fighting with a set of deep dish carbon rims on a breezy day inspires similar dread to trying to control an overtired toddler in a public place. You can try to stay in control, but you'll be hard pressed to ever find a few minutes when you can relax. You'll experience none of that unpredictability during a ride with the 303's, as the 45mm rims manage winds calmly and consistently, while their wide 26. 4mm brake track gives a range of tire sizes a wide, stable perch to sit atop that won't cause bulging while cornering.Zipp adds its signature Aerodynamic Boundary Layer Control (ABLC) to the 303 as well, which is an excessively descriptive moniker for the dimpled surface that's been a hallmark of Zipp for years. ABLC smooths airflow, cutting drag and saving you watts over time in conditions you'll encounter out on the roads, rather than only in a wind tunnel. As you pedal, the 303 will hum reliably on Zipp's 77/177 hubs, which Zipp reinforced this year to better block out grit and water for improved longevity.Out of the box, the wheels come with Zipp's updated quick-released skewers, which have been further fine-tuned for better aerodynamics and easier installation, as well as Zipp's Tangente Platinum Pro Evo brake pads, which Zipp recommends you use exclusively to get the full heat-resistant benefits of its resin brake track.

Built to withstand the jarring cobbles of races like Flanders and Roubaix, the Zipp 303 holds the venerable distinction of the first carbon wheelset to win those storied classics and has gained a reputation as a versatile jack of all trades. For 2016, the 303 Firecrest Carbon Clincher Road Wheelset gets updated hubs for an added dose of speed. The 303 Firecrest features a 45mm rim that provides aerodynamic advantages while maintaining stable handling in crosswinds for a smooth, stress-free experience even on windy days. A wide, 26. 4mm brake track gives the tire a secure stance without impacting rolling resistance and increases stability by nearly eliminating the side bulge effect found in tires mounted to narrower rims. The wider rim makes for more tire volume, and that means lower rolling resistance and more confidence for cornering on rails -- all while providing a comfortable ride along the way. The wheels feature an updated version of Zipp's signature Aerodynamic Boundary Layer Control (ABLC) dimpling, which uses strategically placed and sized dimples across the rim surface to smooth airflow. The even better news is that ABLC enjoys aerodynamic advantages at real-world yaw angles. Compared to many wheels that experience minimum drag numbers at wind angles that rarely occur outside of a wind tunnel, the 303 Firecrests are shaped to handle the windy conditions you'll run into on the actual road. In the middle, Zipp uses its updated 77/177 hubset with improved stiffness and durability over its predecessor for a smooth, supple ride.

It'll just take less time." It's based on the same 303 depth that we first saw storm to multi-surface success under Spartacus at Flanders in 2010, but the latest 303 platform combines strength, stability, and the aerodynamic features the brand is known for in a body that, if Cancellara had it those seven years ago, may well have pushed the final gap out to two minutes or more. The "takes less time" part of Zipp's claim is obvious: the brand was one of the early adapters of the bullet-shaped rim cross section that's swept the industry in recent years, and it's of course synonymous with Aerodynamic Boundary Layer Control (ABLC) dimpling. When compared to smooth-sided rims, Zipp credits those dimples with reducing drag across all yaw angles; however, the largest gains occur between 10 and 20 degrees, a range that Zipp claims encompasses 50% of the time we spend on the bike. By combining the gains of ABLC with the natural tendency for 45mm rims to want to hold speed in the low- to high-20s, Zipp maximizes aerodynamics. Zipp also credits ABLC with stabilizing the wheel in crosswinds, but the new generation's titanic internal width of 21mm may have a far more significant impact, stability-wise. That width lets you run 28mm tires with impunity--in fact, Zipp recommends that size because it brings the tire's side walls neatly in line with the rim's outer face, reducing the air-tripping transitional ridge caused by narrower rims. A wider rim and plumper tire (Indulge in 28s. You won't regret it.) allow for higher air volume and a lower PSI, so when the 303 Firecrest Tubeless is paired with a big tire, it rolls more smoothly through obstacles, deforming around gravel and lumps rather than bouncing over them. That reduces r...

Zipp 303 Firecrest Carbon Disc Brake Road Wheelset - Tubeless Zipp 303 Firecrest Carbon Disc Brake Road Wheelset - Tubeless
Zipp is known for speed. Hell, the brand's tagline is "Speed Weaponry." But it also knows that all the speed in the world only amounts to a decidedly unhappy ending without the ability to stop. The 303 Firecrest Carbon Disc Brake Road Wheelset is tubeless-ready and comically wide, a combination that boosts durability and encourages the use of plush tires. That in turn recommends the wheelset for riding fast in less than ideal conditions on the kinds of terrain that would make any other wheel balk. Enter the 303 Firecrest's disc brakes, which help ensure that, while taking advantage of Zipp's weaponized speed in the straights, you can enter the corners with abandon. The increased modulation and immediate response of discs mean that you can brake later to carry more speed into corners on everything from rain-bogged gravel roads to off-camber hairpins on grassy 'cross courses. Gravel bikes have opened up a whole new world of cycling adventure. We like exploring the road not typically taken by bike, but that doesn't mean we want to go slow while we're doing it, and Zipp's combination of aerodynamic embellishments and a wide rim encourage that impulse. The speed starts with the rim's shape, which hits the depth of traditional NACA shapes but tempers that shape with a rounded, bullet-esque profile that enjoys the gains at low yaw angles while minimizing cross wind instability. This is especially important since the wheelset is designed for use on gravel, fire roads, hardpack--you name it--so reducing side forces lets you focus on wrestling with whatever surface you're on, not crosswinds. The Aerodynamic Boundary Layer Control (ABLC) dimpling is another contributor here. Zipp credits the dimples with managing airflow across the rims' surfaces, helping it detach with reduced drag in all yaw angles, though it shines especially bright between 10 and 20 degrees. It's no accident that this is also the range in which we spend 50% of our time in the saddle. Since disc brakes r...

Zipp 303 NSW Carbon Clincher Road Wheel Zipp 303 NSW Carbon Clincher Road Wheel
We know you're here to check out Zipp's latest batch of speed weaponry, the 303 NSW Carbon Clincher Road Wheel, but tarry for a bit and follow us back in time. The year is 2010, and the two greatest cobblestone riders of this generation are preparing to lock horns in yet another season of pave monuments. Flanders was first, and when one of the protagonists, Cancellara, rolled to the start line with 45mm carbon rims, we scoffed into our Duvel. Having been witness to the failure of carbon on cobblestones year after year, we thought that there was no way he'd survive to Ninove without those wheels failing. And we were wrong. Resplendent in the Swiss champion's jersey, Spartacus rode away in spectacular fashion on the Kapelmuur and never looked back. Zipp's 303 platform is the wheel that made the carbon/cobbles marriage a reality, and the event is immortalized by images of Cancellara rolling down the finishing straight while defiantly waving a tiny Swiss flag against a backdrop of countless Flandrian and Belgian flags. The combination of aerodynamics and reliability meant that carbon no longer had to fear the stones, and the 303 NSW represents a major update. It's more aerodynamic, brakes better, and is even more reliable than before. And that's just the rim. For the first time in its lifespan, the 303's new hubs are every bit as impressive as its rims. We admit that we haven't always associated Zipp with hub innovation, but the 303 NSW's Cognition rear hub may be the most exciting technology in factory wheels that we've seen since Zipp first introduced its bulging sidewalls. The freehub is centered on Zipp's Axial Clutch mechanism, which features two Metal Injection Molding (MIM) ratcheting rings -- one mated to the freehub body and one mated to the hub body. The two rings are machined like a ratchet, so they ramp off of each other while freewheeling but engage each other during pedal input. Compared to a standard pawl design, which actually resembles a drum brak...

Where were you some six years ago this spring' We remember exactly where we were: glued to the couch on a Sunday morning with a sack full of fast food pommes frits and a six pack of Leffe Blonde, watching the ancestor of Zipp's 303 NSW Carbon Clincher Road Wheelset prove its mettle on the cobblestones of Flanders. We'd seen carbon rims on the stones before, and the results were typically disappointing, to say the least. But in 2010, the 303 platform proved that it's more than equal to the bullying of the stones, and the 303 NSW represents an update in every key category. It's more aerodynamic, brakes better, and is even more reliable than before. And that's just the rim. For the first time in its lifespan, the 303's new hubs are every bit as impressive as its rims. We admit that we haven't always associated Zipp with hub innovation, but the 303 NSW's Cognition rear hub may be the most exciting technology in factory wheels that we've seen since Zipp first introduced its bulging sidewalls. The freehub is centered on Zipp's Axial Clutch mechanism, which features two Metal Injection Molding (MIM) ratcheting rings -- one mated to the freehub body and one mated to the hub body. The two rings are machined like a ratchet, so they ramp off of each other while freewheeling but engage each other during pedal input. Compared to a standard pawl design, which actually resembles a drum brake, the Axial Clutch's MIM rings engage laterally to reduce friction while freewheeling, so coasting doesn't negate watts already spent. We're familiar with this model, as we've seen similar mechanisms on the designer hubs featured in top-end custom builds for years now, but Zipp is the first to replace the usual tensioning agent, steel springs, with magnets. This substitution further reduces friction between the ratcheting rings, making for what may be the smoothest freewheel on any mass-produced hub set. It's a design that we suspect will eventually be the norm, but -- once again -- Zipp is...

If you've decided that a set of aero carbon race hoops are in your future, you might as well commit already and step into the abyss. After a pretty significant price drop this year, Zipp goods are looking more enticing than ever. Stop the endless nights of internet research and forum discussions and grab the 404 Firecrest Carbon Clincher Road Wheel so you can get out and ride. The great thing about the 404 is that it's deep, but not so singularly focused that you won't be able to take it out as a training wheel when you aren't racing. At 58mm, it's just about the last choice before you plunge fully into the deep-dish realm, where wind gusts can render a wheelset useless for a training ride or race. You'll still have to pay attention to wind with a 58mm carbon rim, but you'll also gain a noticeable advantage on the flats. Once you rev these rims up to speed, they won't want to come back down. Eventually, you will have to bring your wheels back to earth for a major intersection or stoplight, and Zipp makes sure that you'll be able to by using a heat-resistant resin to craft the wheel's wide, 24. 7mm brake track. Rather than squeezing the levers with a grimace and a prayer, you'll be able to slow down with control when you need to, which is especially crucial in a crowded race. The 404's carbon construction certainly lends it aerodynamic advantage, but Zipp delivers further wind-cheating benefits by adding its Aerodynamic Boundary Layer Control (ABLC) dimpling to the surface of each wheel, which help smooth airflow in a range of wind conditions, allowing you to slice cleanly through the air as you change direction throughout a race. Other important technology contributing to a smooth rolling wheelset includes Zipp's reliable 77/177 hubset, with improved seals against grit and water this year, as well as updated quick-release skewers that are now easier to hang onto and tuck more cleanly into the frame for less drag.

Zipp 404 Firecrest Carbon Clincher Road Wheelset Zipp 404 Firecrest Carbon Clincher Road Wheelset
We typically sell Zipp wheels as individual hoops, letting you mix and match rim depths for whatever discipline you're targeting; however, with the 404 Firecrest Carbon Clincher Road Wheelset, we've taken the liberty of packaging them as the more conservative cyclists would have them: a complementary pair of mirrored rim depths. The latest generation of 404 Firecrests feature the same proven all-purpose depth with a new pattern of Advanced Boundary Layer Control (ABLC) dimpling and a reinforced rim that further improves reliability compared to its cobblestone-proven predecessor. As with any deep Zipp wheel, the 404 Firecrest's side-wall bulge and ABLC texturing are its signature features, both of which contribute to improved stability at the kind of yaw angles you'll actually experience on the road, not while cloistered in a wind tunnel. While these two features tend to steal the headlines, Zipp's Visco-Elastic Constrained Layer Control (VCLC) and Carbon Bridge technologies may be even more impressive despite being less evident from a visual standpoint. VCLC is similar to a construction model that we're seeing more and more in high-end frame manufacturing, especially among the venerable Italian names. To unpack Zipp's initialism, VCLC involves constraining a visco-elastic layer between the wheels' carbon and resin layers in order to increase the structure's ability to absorb and control road noise. As mentioned above, we're used to seeing this in racing frames, but Zipp may be the only manufacturer to bring it to wheels. The Carbon Bridge design incorporates Kevlar threads in the carbon layup to take advantage of Kevlar's 350% greater resistance to impact. The benefits throughout the wheel are obvious, but higher durability is especially welcome at the tire mounting surface, which is often the first area to take a hit when tires flat, and Zipp claims that the 404's durability under duress jumps by just over 40%. The rims are anchored by their final new featu...

The 404 Firecrest Carbon Disc Brake Road Clincher Wheel is Zipp's answer to keeping this versatile and aerodynamic rim profile current with the shifting trends toward disc brakes for nearly all cycling disciplines. Whether you're looking to run even rim depth front to rear on your new disc-equipped steed or aiming to mix the dish, this wheel delivers confident speed and predictable handling no matter the conditions. The 404 is an ambitious rim profile designed to bring near-tubular feel to the clincher world, featuring an aerodynamic 58mm rim depth and a 16. 25mm internal rim width that gives the tire a solid platform to reduce instability caused by the side bulge effect found in tires mounted to narrower rims. It's not as wide as some of the exaggerated rim widths we're seeing more of every year, but it does sit in the sweet spot of ISO and ETRTO recommendations for 25mm tires. Zipp testing shows that the rim design creates a more stable overall structure while providing greater radial compliance for a comfortably controlled ride over rough road surfaces. The design also increases stiffness under load from hammering and cornering, making for snappy jumps and sharp lines through corners. Aerodynamics are a key element of the 404 Firecrest's versatility. It features an updated version of Zipp's signature Aerodynamic Boundary Layer Control (ABLC) dimpling, which uses strategically placed and sized dimples across the rim's surface to smooth airflow and reduce drag. ABLC boasts aerodynamic advantages at real-world yaw angles of 10 to 20 degrees. This compares favorably to wheels that hit low drag numbers at yaw angles of five to 10 degrees, conditions that rarely occur outside of a wind tunnel. In non-techy talk, that means these wheels are faster the competition in the windy conditions you'll actually encounter on the road.

Face facts: you've gotten to the point in your training where the only thing that's going to make you faster in your next race is a wheel upgrade. Power matters, but cycling unabashedly favors the best equipment, and if you want to take a big step towards faster splits and saved watts, choose the 404 NSW Carbon Clincher Road Wheel. Employing a versatile 58mm depth and representing a luxurious upgrade to Zipp's Firestrike line, the 404 NSW comes complete with the Zipp Cognition hub and a significant drop in weight over the Firestrike 404. With a 58mm rim depth, the 404 NSW stands as the last versatile rim size before you enter into finicky deep dish territory. You'll certainly feel gusty breezes when you begin a winding descent at the summit of a climb, but you won't have to worry about turning back home to swap out your wheels when the day turns out to be windier than predicted. As this is Zipp, you'll also enjoy the benefits of the firm's Aerodynamic Boundary Layer Control (ABLC) technology, which works to reduce drag and improve the wheelset's ability to slice through the air at a huge range of angle. Whether you're leaning into corners in a circuit race or are tucked into your aerobars for a tri, the 404 NSW's were developed to be used in real-world situations, so they won't require pro-level speeds and a perfect convergence of conditions to truly shine. As much as you'd rather maintain speeds than slow down, occasionally you'll need to, and for those times, Zipp graced the 404 NSW with its Showstopper brake track. According to Zipp, its now better than ever, employing strategic texturing and a heat-resistant surface to guarantee the kind of reliable stopping power that Zipp says exceeds that of aluminum hoops.

Zipp 404 NSW Carbon Clincher Road Wheelset Zipp 404 NSW Carbon Clincher Road Wheelset
The aerodynamic obsessives at Zipp have continually impressed us with their inability to leave winning designs well enough alone. The 404 NSW Carbon Clincher Road Wheelset is the latest fruit of their restless tinkering, and it improves on the already impressively improved 404 Firestrike model. These improvements start with a claimed weight that's 65g lighter than the Firestrike equivalent and 135g lighter than the Firecrest. The improvements continue in three other key areas: aerodynamics (of course), the freehub, and braking. We'll get to the hub shortly but, this being Zipp, we're inclined to focus first on the rim. We're always ready to welcome any wind-taming benefits, but we're actually a little more excited about the improved braking. The rims are equipped with an updated version of Zipp's Showstopper brake track, which enjoyed an impressive debut on the Firestrike 404 but has already been improved for the NSW model. It's still imbued with the same silicon carbide particles, but the direction-specific grooves have increased in number and changed in depth. The original Showstopper netted some pretty impressive stopping across all conditions, but Zipp assures us that the new version is even better. The upshot is you can hold speed longer while approaching a corner, braking later and gaining tiny increments of time with each bend or switchback. You can also, you know, stop reliably when obstacles like darting dogs, inattentive motorists, or run-off debris on a fast canyon descent make unexpected cameos in your ride. Ok, we now return to the subject you probably expected to be the headline for a new Zipp wheel. The brand's signature Aerodynamic Boundary Layer Control (ABLC) dimpling returns with a new designation. It's called SawTooth Technology, and it consists of ABLC dimples applied in a single pattern repeated in 12 discrete swathes (or "nodes") across the rim's surface, looking much like the strokes of a paint brush.

Zipp 454 NSW Carbon Clincher Disc Brake Road Wheel Zipp 454 NSW Carbon Clincher Disc Brake Road Wheel
Zipp made a splash with its release of the 454 wheelset. After all, the brand did use biomimicry and looked to the sea when seeking new aerodynamic properties for this wheelset. The 454 NSW Carbon Clincher Disc Brake Road Wheels features a unique, alternating rim shape inspired by whales. Zipp looked at the tubercles found on the edges of humpbacks' fins for a rim profile that would maximize aero benefits at all yaw angles and increase crosswind stability.Right off the bat, the 454 looks different and any other rim shape, as the depth varies between 58mm at its peaks and 53mm in the valleys on a mountain range that Zipp refers to as Hyperfoils. This patented rim shape achieves something conventional aero wheels cannot; it simultaneously reduces both aerodynamic drag and side forces for the ultimate in AeroBalance. Sawtooth accomplishes this with a series of patented fin-shaped Hyperfoil nodes along the inner diameter of the rim that work together with the HexFin ABLC dimples for improved airflow. Meant to mimic the tubercles on the fins of humpback whales in nature, they manage water resistance and allow the huge aquatic animal the ability to make quick turns. While riding, this translates to confident handling on 50mph+ descents down canyon roads with variable winds and an added aero benefit while in an all-day break or keeping your powder dry in the pack, waiting for the final field gallop.The 454 is part of Zipp's NSW lineup, meaning it sees the most advanced technology it knows in crafting wheels. Zipp's signature dimpling is traded from the standard ABLC design to HexFin ABLC. HexFin ABLC dimples differ from their traditional round versions to better manage the boundary layer of air against the rim and create more stable aerodynamic benefits. The HexFin dimples are strategically placed in small, fin-shaped clumps above the deepest edge of each Hyperfoil where Zipp found them to most benefit.Outside of the 808 and its disc wheels, the 454 is the fastest wh...

Zipp 454 NSW Carbon Clincher Road Wheelset Zipp 454 NSW Carbon Clincher Road Wheelset
The bike industry has a habit of quickly making its best technology seem obsolete with each new product release, and while wheels with the current standard of bullet-nosed rims don't seem to be going anywhere, Zipp is stepping up with a decidedly different approach to the shape of aerodynamics. The Zipp 454 NSW Carbon Clincher Road Wheelset features a unique, variable rim shape inspired by majestic maritime Mammalia. The fearlessly innovative brand draws inspiration from the tubercles found on the edges of humpback whale fins for a rim profile that oscillates depth, a striking shape that Zipp claims of increases aerodynamic benefits and boosts the brand's already notable crosswind stability. The most immediately obvious difference between the 454 and any other wheel is in the rim shape, whose depth varies between 58mm at its deepest point and 53mm at its shallowest in a series of wavy swells Zipp refers to as Hyperfoils. The overall design is known as SawTooth, which takes on a shape not dissimilar to the ABLC SawTooth dimple patterning found on the 404 NSW. These bumps, designated as Hyperfoils, are meant to mimic the nodes or tubercles found on the fins of humpback whales that manage water resistance and contribute to the massive animals' ability to swiftly maneuver despite their size. Compared to standard, consistent depth rims, Zipp claims that wind tunnel testing shows that this SawTooth design significantly reduces both side force and aerodynamic drag, which in combination should translate to more confident handling when riding on exposed roads in variable winds and an easier time pushing the pedals any given speed compared to even the 404 NSW. The 454 NSW also marks a departure from Zipp's signature dimpling, upgrading the ABLC design to HexFin ABLC. The HexFin ABLC dimples take inspiration from their round predecessors' claimed ability to better manage the boundary layer of air against the rim, but Zipp tells us that the updated, hexagonal shape enjoys ...

Ask any collection of triathletes or time trialists about the best wheelset for their events, and you'll mostly likely hear an emphatic chorus of "808" in return. Long-proven as a speed-demon time trial and road race wheel and followed by claims of being the fastest wheel in the world, the Zipp 808 Firecrest Carbon Clincher Road Wheel brings together top-level aerodynamic design and outstanding crosswind handling to roar towards the line. Make no bones about it, the 808 is aggressively designed to slice through the wind. Zipp uses an updated version of its signature Aerodynamic Boundary Layer Control (ABLC) dimpling with strategically placed and sized dimples across the rim surface to reduce drag and smooth airflow, allowing the wheel to swoop through the air with the confidence and grace of a diving peregrine falcon. ABLC boasts aerodynamic advantages at real-world yaw angles of ten to 20 degrees, which compares favorably to many wheels that feature minimum drag numbers at yaw angles of just five to ten degrees -- conditions that occur much less frequently outside of a wind tunnel. In non-techy talk, these wheels go faster and handle better than the competition in the actual conditions you'll experience on the road. In addition to blazing speed on the flats, the 808's modest weight means it won't hamstring you on the climbs of a hilly route. For the concurrent descents, or in the event of a technical TT course, Zipp makes sure to address the oft-encountered issue of carbon rims overheating under prolonged braking. By using a special, heat-resistant resin in the carbon layup, Zipp succeeds in increasing heat dissipation and reducing the potential for rim failure. Zipp claims that use of this resin has led to an unbeatable record of zero heat-related rim failures in its carbon rims, so you can ride those big descents and twisty courses with confidence that these rims will get you safely through. In the middle of it all, Zipp uses its updated 77 hub on the front...

First, we've packaged the wheels as a pair rather than as individual front/rear options, which is par for Zipp's course. Second -- and more importantly -- they represent the latest round of racing clincher wheels from Zipp. Since the new generation of Firecrests are more durable than ever, the convenience of clinchers means that they can serve as racing and training wheels. As with any deep Zipp wheel, the 808 Firecrest's side-wall bulge and Advanced Boundary Layer Control (ABLC) texturing are its signature features, both of which contribute to improved stability at the kind of yaw angles you'll actually experience on the road, not while cloistered in a wind tunnel. ABLC is especially important for this generation of Firecrests because Zipp's engineers revisited the sizes and distribution pattern of the signature dimpling. While these two features tend to steal the headlines, Zipp's Visco-Elastic Constrained Layer Control (VCLC) and Carbon Bridge technologies may be even more impressive despite being less evident from a visual standpoint. VCLC is similar to a construction model that we're seeing more and more in high-end frame manufacturing, especially among the venerable Italian names. To unpack Zipp's initialism, VCLC involves constraining a visco-elastic layer between the wheels' carbon and resin layers in order to increase the structure's ability to absorb and control road noise. As mentioned above, we're used to seeing this in racing frames, but Zipp may be the only manufacturer to bring it to wheels. The Carbon Bridge design incorporates Kevlar threads in the carbon layup to take advantage of Kevlar's 350% greater resistance to impact. The benefits throughout the wheel are obvious, but higher durability is especially welcome at the tire mounting surface, which is ...

Zipp 808 NSW Carbon Clincher Road Wheel Zipp 808 NSW Carbon Clincher Road Wheel
When it comes to wheel aerodynamics, few platforms enjoy the reputation of Zipp's 808s. This reputation is the product of results rather than marketing hype; it's been vetted at the top tier of endurance athletics for years on end. Using only the past two years as a sample size, the 808 Firecrests were ridden to Kona glory by Kienle in 2014, and the all-new 808 NSW Carbon Clincher Road Wheel helped propel Frodeno to the same title in 2015. While it's tempting to refer to these as successive or repeat wins for the same wheel model, the 808 Firecrest doesn't really hold a candle to the 808 NSW's rising star. Improved aerodynamics, a re-engineered brake track, and a ground-up revision of the lay-up schedule all contribute to a faster, safer, and lighter platform than the one that Kienle rode just two years ago. Given the world championship success of the previous 808 platform -- not to mention our own experiences on them -- we admit to being a bit surprised by Zipp's decision to completely overhaul it; but that's exactly what the NSW model is: an overhaul of an already revolutionary design. As alluded to above, the rim's braking and aerodynamics have both seen improvements with no sacrifice to durability, and the NSW 808's refined carbon lay-up earns the set a claimed weight that's 75g lighter than the 808 Firecrest clincher. Despite the advancements to rim, which is the element of the wheel that Zipp's tag line of "Speed Weaponry" is typically associated with, we're actually most excited about the Cognition hub. Blasphemy, we know, but the Cognition makes a strong case for itself. We'd even go so far to suggest that the NSW's Cognition rear hub may be the most exciting innovation we've seen in factory wheels since Zipp first introduced its bulging sidewalls. The hub owes its sex appeal to Zipp's Axial Clutch freewheel design, which features two Metal Injection Molding (MIM) ratcheting rings -- one mated to the freehub body and one mated to the hub body. The two ring..

Zipp 808 NSW Carbon Clincher Road Wheelset Zipp 808 NSW Carbon Clincher Road Wheelset
If you consider Zipp's 808 NSW Carbon Clincher Road Wheelset on the virtues of its wind tunnel numbers and dry, technical engineering data alone, it's a pretty damn impressive wheelset. The egghead, science-y pedigree is legit, and the numbers definitely speak to our cerebral appreciation of the quantifiable aspects of cycling innovation. But the visceral feeling produced by riding Zipp's flagship model in anger is far less cerebral. Rather than hard numbers and data, that feeling is best expressed by a breathless "my-oh-my." The benefits of the new design go beyond the rim to include a revolutionary new freehub; however, this being Zipp, you'll understand if we kick things off with the rim. We're always ready to welcome any wind-taming benefits, but we're actually a little more excited about the improved braking. The rims are equipped with an updated version of Zipp's Showstopper brake track, which enjoyed an impressive debut on Zipp's Firestrike rim but has already been improved for the NSW line. It's still imbued with the same silicon carbide particles, but the direction-specific grooves have increased in number and changed in depth. The original Showstopper netted some pretty impressive stopping across all conditions, but Zipp assures us that the new version is even better. The upshot is you can hold speed longer while approaching a corner, braking later and gaining tiny increments of time with each bend or switchback. You can also, you know, stop reliably when obstacles like darting dogs, inattentive motorists, or run-off debris on a fast canyon descent make unexpected cameos in your ride. Ok, we now return to the subject you probably expected to be the headline for a new Zipp wheel. The brand's signature Aerodynamic Boundary Layer Control (ABLC) dimpling returns with a new designation. It's called SawTooth Technology, and it consists of ABLC dimples applied in a single pattern repeated in 12 discrete swathes (or "nodes") across the rim's surface, looking ...

Zipp 858 NSW Carbon Clincher Disc Road Wheel Zipp 858 NSW Carbon Clincher Disc Road Wheel
Zipp knew it could and should bring the radical biomimicry-derived 454 NSW Carbon Clincher wheels to deeper depths, fueling the wants and needs of the aero and tri crowd. It proved that aero efficiency and crosswind stability are not mutually exclusive when it comes to aero wheel goals. With that in mind, Zipp crafted a Sawtooth rim design going 24mm deeper than the 454 and arrived at the 858 NSW Carbon Clincher Disc Road Wheel. It delivers even greater gains in aero efficiency while providing crosswinds stability that was previously unthinkable in conventional deep section wheel designs. By eliminating concerns over handling, the 858 NSW ushers in a new era where aerodynamically efficient deep wheels can be ridden every day on any terrain. The 858's versatility is helped by its lightweight and laterally stiff rims that provide accelerations that were only thought possible from low profile rims which preserve responsive bike handling. Centerlock disc brakes deliver Superior modulation and impressive stopping power in all weather conditions. Zipp's NSW-exclusive Cognition Disc-brake hubs roll super efficiently, whether coasting or under power. The Axial Clutch allows the freehub's ratcheting mechanism to deliver up to half the mechanical drag of a conventional three pawl hub system. Assembled with Swiss bearings made to Zipp's exacting specifications, the Cognition hubset is both robust and fast. The center locking disc brake interface is light and it's quick and easy to remove rotors for travel and J-bend spokes help you find a replacement if you are far away from home. Rim design is the heart of an aero wheelset and SawTooth is the name given to Zipp NSW's patented variable depth 77/82mm rims on this set. It developed the shape by looking at nature and engineering a design in what is known as biomimicry. This pushed the development process of SawTooth in the wind tunnel, CFD, and real-world testing. What resulted was a rim shape that took one of nature's mos...

Zipp Contour SL Carbon Handlebar Zipp Contour SL Carbon Handlebar
The Zipp SL Contour bar isn't designed to meet the specific requirements of the sprinter, or the climber, or the tourist. It is shaped, instead, to be an all 'rounder bar so that no matter what terrain you are riding, your hands will find a comfortable position. The tops of the bars have been flattened, which not only provides a comfortable surface area to rest your hands, but they also are more resistant to road vibration than traditional round bars. And for the subtle advantage, the flattened bars are also more aerodynamic. The hooks are ovalized, which provides a wider grip for your hands. The overall shape of the bars is Zipp's short and shallow bend. This configuration means that the distance between the hood and the drops has been reduced to make the transition easier -- the drops become more usable than on a more traditional lower drop bar.

Zipp Service Course Handlebar Zipp Service Course Handlebar
Using the same tapered diameter as its carbon counterparts, the Zipp Service Course Handlebar goes from 31. 8mm at its central clamp down to 24. 2mm at the top bend. This tapered diameter lends an intuitive shape for high levels of comfort. Its durable 6061 aluminum construction retains brawny strength at the expense of a few grams over carbon bars. If counting every gram isn't your foremost priority, you'll find these bars to excel in performance without emptying your wallet. The Ergo version features a 70mm reach and 128mm drop, with a 10-degree ramp angle and 4-degree outsweep. The net effect is a bar that places your shift/brake levers in a high, easily reachable position, without compromising your hand position in the drops. Its dual-radius curve gives you a longer, flatter hand surface that's similar to an anatomic bend, but with a more subtle, less curvy shape. Plus, its ergonomic shaping facilitates comfortable hand placement along the top side. The traditional version comes with an 80mm reach and 125mm drop, with a 7-degree ramp angle and 4-degree outsweep. This creates a bar with a modest drop with a bit more curve in the transition leading up to the hoods.

Regardless of its renowned homage to carbon, Zipp realizes that aluminum is far from an outdated material. Whether you prefer it for peace of mind in the heat of the sprint or find the slight weight difference an easy way to keep your ultra-light bike above legal weight limits for your Cat 1 debut, the Zipp Service Course SL Ergo Handlebar showcases the best of aluminum's qualities -- strength, low weight, and relatively low cost. The Zipp SL Ergo handlebars are the replacement for the Zipp CSL bars. They were designed with Zipp's SSR (Super Short Reach) dimensions -- a 70mm reach means that it is easier for riders with shorter arms and smaller hands to reach the shifters while in the drops. These dimensions are the same as the SL-70 -- the primary difference is that the tops of the SL Ergo bars have been sculpted flat to provide a substantial platform for your hands during long climbs. The cables tuck nicely underneath. The drop angle of the bars is only 20 degrees. This allows you to position your levers in the 'high-and-Belgian' style or in the flat-top neo-pro style without having to rotate your bars skyward. The drops have a 2 degree outward bend for more wrist comfort, which also minimizes bruised forearms while sprinting. The Zipp Service Course SL Ergo Handlebars are available in 2cm increments from 38cm-44cm measured center to center, and each pair of bars fits a 31. 8mm stem. They come in two colors: Polished Black, a high gloss finish with white logos, or Beyond Black, a matte black with etched logos for a stealthy look.

Zipp Service Course SL-70 Handlebar Zipp Service Course SL-70 Handlebar
Aluminum is far from extinct as a high-end bike material. For example, many pros still rely on aluminum handlebars, whether it be for peace of mind or because having a more substantial bar is an intelligent way to meet the UCI minimum weight requirement without sacrificing ride quality. Regardless, the Zipp Service Course SL Handlebar makes the most of aluminum's beneficial properties -- it features a low weight, high strength, and a relatively low cost. All the while, the SL provides the same exquisite design detail that's found in Zipp's carbon fiber bars. The Service Course SL uses the same shaping for the Short-and-Shallow version as used in the SL Carbon Fiber Handlebar. It's built with round tops that taper downward in a smooth and constant manner from the 31. 8mm clamp area to a 24. 2mm diameter at the top bend. The drop angle is only 20 degrees. What's the net effect' You're able to position your levers in the high-and-Belgian style, and you'll get a smooth transition from the bar onto the drops. In addition to this, the Short-and-Shallow bar has a dual radius curve in the drops. So, you'll benefit from the longer, flatter hand surface. We're tempted to call it an anatomic bend, but be aware that the bend shape is, thankfully, subtle and not overly curvy like many anatomic bars of the past. The 84. 5mm reach, plus the short radius behind the clamp area, make it easy to get the crook of your hand 'locked' into position for a solid feel in the drops. This also provides a simplified reach to the brake levers. For the drop, the 128mm plunge makes the lower portion of the handlebars more accessible. Zipp also produces the Service Course SL in a Traditional Bend with an 87. 5mm reach and a 130mm drop. If you detest anatomic bars of any sort, but you're looking for a bar with a modest drop, then this is the bar that's best suited to your tastes.

Drop handlebars used to have one shape. Period. Now, there are countless styles to choose from -- anatomic, short reach, double-bend, just to name a few.The Zipp Service Course SL-88 is a traditional bend drop bar. A replacement for the Service Course SL-TB, it is a strong, lightweight aluminum bar. Regardless of the popularity of carbon for both weight and 'bling' factor, aluminum has not lost its appeal. It provides strong sprinters with security as they grip the bars and drive the bike forward with thousands of watts. It also adds a few extra ounces to an ultralight bike that may not otherwise meet UCI weight requirements. Because aluminum remains popular among all levels of riders, Zipp designs its Service Course with fit and durability that compete with similar carbon bars. The SL-88 was designed with a round section tubing featuring an 88mm reach and a 130mm drop with a round bend. The round bend allows ample room to position hands while in the drops. Additionally, the round bend has only a slight 20 degree angle -- levers may be positioned in several positions to accommodate different styles of riding. There is no need to rotate your bars toward the heavens to get that perfect fit. The Zipp Service Course SL-88 Handlebars are available in 3 widths from 40cm-44cm measured center to center, and each pair fits a 31. 8mm stem.

Zipp Super-9 Disc Rear Carbon Clincher Zipp Super-9 Disc Rear Carbon Clincher
The disc wheel and Zipp go hand-in-hand. In fact, the disc was Zipp's first product in the late '80s, jumping straight into the spotlight as a serious wheel that could cheat wind unlike anything that the cycling world had seen before. Today, through pro-rider feedback (think Tony Martin's silver in London), the use of advanced composite technologies, and extensive wind tunnel testing, Zipp continues its mission of building the fastest disc wheels on the planet. And with the introduction of the Super-9 Disc Rear Carbon Clincher, Zipp's Super line continues, marking its fastest wheel to date. Through extensive wind tunnel testing, dubbed the "carbon clincher project," Zipp's engineers discovered that, aerodynamically speaking, clinchers are significantly faster than tubulars. The transition from the tire surface to the rim surface allows for the airflow to stay attached over the wheel, accordingly providing a reduction in pressure drag. As Zipp puts it, this could only be achieved using a carbon clincher design. Why' Well, in comparison to tubulars, the clinchers' carefully molded brake track more closely follows the contour of the tire. In other words, the reshaped brake tracks actually tips inward slightly, rather than aligning parallel. So, this shape places the disc's widest point just below the braking surface. This keeps the clincher tucked down into the relatively wide, 26. 42mm tire bed. Or, in even more simpler terms, the Super-9 eliminates balloon-effect. And besides providing an aerodynamic advantage, the added width between the clincher hook beads increases air volume in the tire, which means a lower chance of pinch-flatting. The Super-9 carbon clincher still features the dimpling pattern that's found on the 900 and the Firecrest models, which effectively smooths air flow in order to minimize drag. Zipp calls this its Aerodynamic Boundary Layer Control (ABLC). Essentially, this is a treatment to the carbon fiber, where the surface is embossed with o...
