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.

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.

3T wasn't going to update their highly acclaimed Ergonova dropbar, especially after receiving unanimous feedback to not change a thing. However, 3T decided to go back to the drawing board after observing their customers spending significant time holding these bars by the corners. This lead to the 3T Superergo LTD Stealth drop bar, which uses ergonomic shaping along the corners for a comfortable climbing position when you're hammering up steep grades for extended periods of time. This LTD edition represents the top-flight version of the Superergo series, using the lightest possible materials with more sophistication fabrication methods and titanium bolts instead of steel. Weighing only 173 grams (42 cm), the Superergo LTD Stealth Handlebar is one of the lightest carbon bars on the market today. Besides shaving weight, the high modulus carbon fiber is extremely stiff and reliably strong, meaning it'll withstand years of punishment on the road.

3T continues to refine its bar bends and ergonomics supplying modern componentry to the competitive cyclist. For many riders, the Ergonova set the benchmark for comfort both in the ergonomic shape of the bar and the integration with the hoods. What 3T noticed is that many racers spend a considerable amount of time gripping the bars in at the widest section of the bend, especially while climbing out of the saddle. 3T then set out designing the corners to specifically support the hands, while reducing pressure, while in this position so all of the touch points, the hoods, the tops, and the drops are comfortable enough that riders are more likely to use all of the positions. To do this, 3T made the shape wider where the tops transition to the drops and with more real estate on offer, less pressure is concentrated to a smaller area of the hand. Further refinement of the reach and the modern compact drop provides a better platform for the hands when used with the latest shifter and brake levers and thus, a new bar was born. The particular bar we have here is the Superergo Team Stealth. Now that we know the bar's shape is beneficial for climbing, sprinting, and descending we'll delve into a few more details. It is constructed of unidirectional high modulus carbon fiber, and this bar tips the scales at an impressive 200g, plenty light enough if your building up a climbing bike and stout enough for taking on the classics. The carbon layup also helps soak up vibrations so you'll stay fresher for longer. Internal routing is standard so installing Di2 or mechanical shifting as well as rim or hydro brake housing is a breeze. The matte finish and understated graphics look good with any bike's paint scheme.

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.

Black Inc Carbon Handlebar Black Inc Carbon Handlebar
Competitive carbon cockpit components have long been dominated by a single brand; however, Black Inc is poised to challenge that hegemony. The Carbon Handlebar is lighter than the current dream bar standard, and it offers the additional benefit of literally decades of carbon construction expertise. Before Black Inc and sister company Factor Bikes began producing their own carbon frames and cockpits, the team behind both brands was responsible for the elbow grease behind a number of boutique (and professionally raced) bike brands. Now, Black Inc has devoted its own factory space to producing its own product, ensuring there's no middleman anywhere in the design and construction process. That devotion to quality and control are also sure to inspire envy in the masses of riders rocking the same, ubiquitous bars. Black Inc's tagline is "all about control," and--since the brand has 100% control over everything from material choice to layup to finishing details--that ensures that there aren't any potential gaps in quality that you could pay for with an ill-timed component failure. That control-first brand mission continues well after the bar has shipped, too, as the race-friendly geometry keeps you comfortable on the hoods with a slight drop flare to reduce wrist contact and (of course) increase control when your cruising or sprinting in the drops. The bar's aerodynamic shaping across the flats not only reducing drag, but it also adds a slight engineered bit of damping. That helps to take some of the sting out of a long day spent sheltered in the pack, where the natural flow of a peloton keeps you on the hoods for hours at a time. When the sprint does open up, that slight flare mentioned above helps reduce wrist strikes so you can take full advantage of the bar's unrivaled stiffness.

Black Inc Carbon Integrated Handlebar/Stem Black Inc Carbon Integrated Handlebar/Stem
Though Black Inc and sister brand Factor Bikes are relative newcomers to the cycling industry, the people behind them have a long, storied history. That's why Black Inc is able to boast that, unlike most vendors, it is also a manufacturer; it owns its own factory, so it's literally manufacturing the Carbon Integrated Barstem. The material choice, design, carbon layup, and finishing processes are 100% inside jobs, which guarantees that Black Inc is always in complete control of the quality and--more importantly--the reliability of the bar/stem unit. Given that the Barstem's primary job is to give you control during high-stakes finales and driven descents, you'll be happy to know that the manufacturing process is, as Black Inc pointedly notes, "all about control." The Barstem is, effectively, a combination of Black Inc's handlebar and stem, albeit with the clamping area removed. Eliminating the need to clamp a stem to a bar eliminates one more chance to crush expensive racing bits. It also lets Black Inc continuously wrap material through the joint, increasing structural integrity and stiffness for those grinding efforts when you're out of the saddle in too big a gear and it feels like you're pulling the bike up a punchy climb by dint of handlebar torque alone. The front-end stiffness of Factor Bikes impresses us, and we suspect the Black Inc Barstem is a big reason why. The combination design also eliminates the transitional ridges from clamp to bar to stem, reducing the possible footholds for air resistance to forward motion. Increased aerodynamics won't be a huge help when you're slugging it out up a wall, but it'll certainly complement today's species of aerodynamic frames after you manage to punch your way to a gap and are faced with the prospect of maintaining it across 30km of no-man's land before the finish line. The bar's dimensions are compact-yet-comfortable, reducing weight while allowing stability in the drops with a 3-degree flare. That slight bump he...

Black Inc Carbon Stem Black Inc Carbon Stem
Despite the site's name, we don't set out on every ride with a purely competitive mindset. But when we do, we definitely pay attention to every last detail of our frame, kit, etc. That's because we want to be sure that the only thing holding us back is ourselves--otherwise, we'll never know what our true limits are, only the limits of our equipment. Black Inc has a similar approach to building that equipment, and the brand's Carbon Stem proves the point. The carbon parts of the stem are made entirely in-house, with no outsourcing of design, construction, or finishing. That means that every detail is sufficiently sweated to ensure that, when you clamp it onto your race bike, you've got one less suspect item to worry about on the road. Black Inc is so draconian about maintaining the pristine state of its carbon that it doesn't even use threaded inserts to anchor the titanium steerer clamp bolts; instead, the brand uses external nuts, keeping structural integrity as high as possible to help ensure that your legs will fail long before the stem does.

Black Inc Fifty Carbon Disc Road Wheelset - Clincher Black Inc Fifty Carbon Disc Road Wheelset - Clincher
If we were faced with the dilemma of only having one road wheelset to ride, 3 notable must-haves would standout: carbon fiber construction, 40-55mm depth, and disc brakes. By going carbon, you'd have a lightweight and stiff set of wheels that make any drop bar bike feel faster. The mid-depth would cover anything from fast crits to lumpy road races with an aero benefit that isn't overwhelmed in windy conditions. Disc brakes, well we're enamored with them and they provide consistent braking in all conditions removing any shortcomings with braking on a carbon surface. Black Inc's Fifty Carbon Disc Brake Road Wheelset features the depth we want, fantastic power available only from disc brakes, and the lightweight and responsiveness that can only come from rims crafted from the atomic number 6.Each season, more professional cyclists are trading in their rim brake road bikes for discs. Those who have ridden them know, the braking performance cannot be matched by rim brakes and if you want to slow down quickly and with modulation, discs are where it's at. It's great to know that these wheels can scrub speed quickly because you're sure to be going fast on them. Using CFD optimization and real-world experience, the rim features an aerodynamic profile that slices through the air, adding free speed, but won't let you lose your confidence while descending a windy canyon road.A wider rim profile is pretty commonplace these days and several wheel brands tend to go the open mold route for its rims and rely on a third-party for hubs. Not with Black Inc. It owns its own production facilities, so it has complete control over the wheels from carbon lay-up design to actual construction. Black Inc designs its hubs in conjunction with CeramicSpeed, so the hub's dimensions are engineered to exacting tolerances that work better with the ceramic bearings that come as standard and not simply an upgrade option.Black Inc's in-house production also allows them to monitor quality control t...

Black Inc Fifty Carbon Road Wheelset - Clincher Black Inc Fifty Carbon Road Wheelset - Clincher
The market is fairly saturated with mid-depth carbon wheelsets and you'd be forgiven if you passed by Black Inc's Fifty Carbon Clincher Road Wheelset without much thought. What you'd miss is that these wheels are constructed from premium carbon fiber that is lightweight providing lightning-quick accelerations and a deep profile providing exceptional aerodynamics. The width helps plump up tires profiles so you can run lower pressure reducing rolling resistance and improving cornering so you can charge harder and brake less on the descents. Rims are but one component of a wheel equation and Black Inc wheel's centerpiece are hubs complete with CeramicSpeed bearings that spin with virtually zero friction. In addition to this smoother spinning, they require less maintenance so you'll be quicker on the group ride and spend less time in the shop. The Fifty Carbon Wheelset can hold its speed in the flats for sure, but it doesn't turn away from a climb either. Rim width is a healthy 27mm, which is wider than the norm letting you use girthier tires without losing aerodynamic efficiency. Proper stiffness is the hallmark of any performance wheelset and the Fifty's possesses it in spades with its unidirectional carbon layup. In conjunction with the rim profile and wider width, the wheels ride a stout feel when you get on the pedals, unlike many lightweight wheels, and it gets up to speed very quickly and doesn't have any troubles staying there. What we are most surprised with, in wheelset of this price range, is the standard hub bearings. CeramicSpeed bearings in the WorldTour is hop up norm and are usually an upgrade option on wheelsets as it offers real-world watt savings. It simply translates to a quicker, smoother, and faster feeling than standard steel bearings. CeramicSpeed is the leader in bicycle bearing technology and the ceramic construction, with hybrid bearings using top-grade Silicon Nitride ceramic balls, surpass steel bearings in every way. Not just a race da...

Black Inc Thirty Carbon Disc Brake Road Wheelset - Clincher Black Inc Thirty Carbon Disc Brake Road Wheelset - Clincher
Though much of the peloton is moving toward the more is more attitude for race wheels, a few notable names insist on the versatility of mid-depth rims for terrain covering grand tours, punchy classics, and the infamous stones of April. Black Inc's Thirty Carbon Disc Brake Road Wheelset features the mid-depth that checks all of those boxes, and the ever-expanding use of disc brakes in the peloton (look out for disc brakes in grand tours this year) means that they're no longer only fodder for the mud and stones of the northern classics. While disc brakes are certainly a boon to everyone from your average cyclists to your Boonens (who, incidentally, notched the first disc-brake win in the World Tour), Black Inc's primary focus is going, not stopping. The rim profile features a bullet-shaped aerodynamic cross section that preserves the benefits of a true NACA airfoil in stable conditions but doesn't get thrown around like a sail when the wind is unpredictable or you're actually riding in yaw angles greater than 5 degrees. That rim shape is fairly common around the industry today for the reasons listed above; however, Black Inc distances the competition in two ways. First, it owns its own production facilities, so it has complete control over the carbon lay-up from conception to realization. Second, Black Inc designs its hubs with CeramicSpeed, which makes them one of the only non-Italian options for factory built wheels with ceramic hubs. Black Inc's in-house production is a definite boost to morale when you're pushing through sweeping descents trying to maintain a gap that was hard-earned on the preceding climb. But we find that all the blood tends to be in our legs at that point, so we're often not thinking of resin integrity and precision carbon manufacturing. Instead, we're focused on speed, and nothing says "speed" like ceramic bearings. Black Inc manages to provide this speed at prices that would make the Italians blush, too, making the Thirty one of the mos...

That comfort is of particular note, as the smooth ride of the Brooks' leather saddles sets an incredibly high bar for the Cambium to match. The cover is a treated organic cotton canvas that resists the elements and softens with miles, yielding an exceptionally 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 and tubular steel rails, which serve to maintain the shape of the saddle as the miles and years roll by.

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.

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.

Campagnolo Bora One 35 Wheelset - Clincher Campagnolo Bora One 35 Wheelset - Clincher
The mid-depth Campagnolo Bora One 35 Wheelset - Clincher is the defacto all-around wheelset for the Campy rider looking for an everyday race and training wheelset. It offers low rotational mass making quick work of climbs and just enough depth to cheat the wind so holding speed on the flats is a little easier. As with everything Campy, it makes no compromises in the wheelbuild or any of the components ushering in a modern-width rim with Campy's legendary bearing expertise that brings the Bora name to a price point that is more attainable. Clincher compatibility allows the Bora One 35s to perform outside of the days that you pin on a number. We are really excited about the wider rims which on this newer generation, has swelled from 20 millimeters up to 24. 2 millimeters. This allows for greater tire volume, better handling and cornering, lower rolling resistance, and a smoother ride. The wider rims also contribute to better lateral stiffness and improve aerodynamics with wider tires. These gains in ride quality also come with an overall weight loss since the cross-section of a wider rim lets Campagnolo use less material while offering a rim of equal strength.The main difference between Bora One Wheels versus the flagship and higher dollar Bora Ultra Wheels are the hubs. The Bora Ones' hubs are made of aluminum instead of carbon, and the bearings are Campy's Ultra Smooth Bearings (USB) instead of CULT. The USB hubs still use legendary Campagnolo ceramic bearings, which are a claimed 50% smoother than steel, putting the USB hubs in a league above. The cups where the bearings reside are steel versus the Cronitect on the CULT's but we're not sure if we could tell a difference while riding especially taking the difference in price into consideration.Campy has expanded the use of 3Diamant rim braking surface treatment to include all Bora models and it addresses most of the key braking issues we've had with some carbon rims in the past.

Campagnolo Bora One 50 Wheelset - Clincher Campagnolo Bora One 50 Wheelset - Clincher
Campagnolo's Bora wheels are legendary and for good reason. Chosen by the sport's fastest riders, Bora wheelsets refuse to flinch when sprinting to the finish of a Grand Tour stage or when called upon to launch an attack on a lumpy Ardennes classic. If you've ever wanted to ride the same wheels as the pros but in a clincher appointment, look no further than the Bora One 50 Wheelset - Clincher. We can only think of a handful of wheelsets that have this much sex appeal and inject a dose of speed to your bike. With the Bora One 50, Campagnolo brings this proven rim design used on the Bora Ultra and laces it to hubs spinning on Ultra Smooth Bearing (USB) hubs versus the pricier Ceramic Ultimate Level Technology (CULT) bearings. Despite these differences in hubs, the Bora One 50 Wheelset is still called on during the rough and tumble spring classics such as Roubaix.The USB hub bodies are alloy instead of CULT's carbon, for an increase of about 50 grams. While we enjoy chasing grams as much as anyone, the money saved and the fact that the weight is centralized on the wheels, where it isn't as critical as further out, we'll take the tradeoff and have more money for race entries. Also, the USB has the same ceramic ball bearings as the CULT just without the Cronitect races. Even without the races, the USB bearings are a claimed 50% smoother than steel, which relates to more free speed on the open road.The latest Bora rims have plumped up to 24. 2 millimeters, up from a previous 20 millimeters. The wider rims help with a number of improvements including better handling and cornering, lower rolling resistance, and a smoother ride. The wider rim also achieves higher lateral stiffness and better aerodynamics while using today's broader tires. Larger tires help achieve a tubular-like ride with the convenience of mounting tires and the ability to change a flat on the side of the road. The width saves weight by letting Campagnolo build a more structurally sound rim with less m...

Campagnolo Bora Ultra 35 Wheelset - Clincher Campagnolo Bora Ultra 35 Wheelset - Clincher
Developed to meet the demands of cyclists like Movistar's Quintana, the Bora Ultra 35 Clincher Wheelset represents the best of the best for mixed terrain racing. Its profile strikes the sweet spot between low weight for climbing and deep aerodynamics, and the addition of Campagnolo's 3Diamant braking texture and peerless CULT ceramic bearings mean it stops, starts, and spins better than almost any other wheelset in the peloton. 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 a" in a counter-intuitive twist a" 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 t...

We still fall into the camp of tubular wheels and tires for racing and clinchers for training but admit that the gap that once spanned ride quality, rolling resistance, and weight has certainly closed. If you're looking for the ultimate race and everyday wheelset, please have a look at the Campagnolo Bora Ultra 50 Clincher Wheelset. Naturally, the clinchers are more user-friendly and boast the ability to change a flat in the field. On the Ultra 50's, Campagnolo has bumped the rims' width up to 24. 2 millimeters wide at the brake track. In doing so, the Italian firm modernizes the Bora ensuring more wins in store for this storied wheelset. The rim's increased width helps improve handling, lowers the rolling resistance, and offers a smoother ride. The increased tire sidewall support nets these gains. Additionally, we see an increase in lateral stiffness and improved aerodynamics with wider tires. Campagnolo saves a little bit of weight too since it can build a more structurally sound rim with less material, and it means you can mount bigger tires, up to 27 millimeters, for tubular-like cush. Cup and cone bearings are behind Campagnolo hubs' legendary rolling performance and CULT technology ups the ante.

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.

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. The 3-cell (12-volt) lithium ion Battery Pack holds a char...

Campagnolo EPS V3 Interface Campagnolo EPS V3 Interface
Campy's EPS drivetrain delivers the infallible consistency of electronic shifting without straying from the brand's defining style and aesthetics. As capable as the drivetrain is, it would be nothing without a brain to control it. As such, the Campagnolo EPS V3 Interface plays its role of loyal guardian to the system with finesse and skill. Overseeing the functionality of the system throughout your ride, the V3 comes equipped to zero out the derailleurs for resetting and make on-the-go diagnoses if the system begins to malfunction. It also works with Campy's MyCampy app to give you full control over shifting and ride quality. One of the biggest advantages to come out of electronic drivetrains as a whole has been the ability for riders to minutely tune the feel and responsiveness of shifts to their preferences. Unsurprisingly, Campy took its own approach in giving riders control of the drivetrain, developing MyCampy to allow you to adjust derailleur settings, change from single to double shifts, alter the speed of your shifts, and then communicate those changes to the V3 to set your drivetrain in seconds. If you depend on a dazzling head unit to deliver ride metrics while you train, the EPS V3 Interface will integrate seamlessly with it, communicating via ANT+ and Bluetooth with any computers that use the technology. You can also choose to run the MyCampy app on your smartphone while you're training, as it will keep track of your equipment and ride details in addition to making drivetrain adjustments. In terms of design, the V3 represents an upgrade from its predecessor, the V2, using a sleeker, more streamlined shape and conveniently including a built-in charging port, which the V2 did not.

Campagnolo H11 Crankset Campagnolo H11 Crankset
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. It's available in both compact and standard chainrings for tailoring it to the terrain at hand, with a variety of crank arm lengths for dialing in an ideal set-up.

Campagnolo H11 EPS Ergo+ Hydraulic Lever & Disc Brake Caliper Campagnolo H11 EPS Ergo+ Hydraulic Lever & Disc Brake Caliper
Few companies in the cycling industry can lay claim to being venerable with Campagnolo's authority. Some of contemporary cycling's foundational innovations were conceived in the brain and born in the workshop of Tullio Campagnolo, including the obsolete rod-operated derailleur, the standard cable-pull parallelogram derailleur, and even the still-ubiquitous quick-release. Current Japanese and American/German outfits may outpace the Italian brand with constantly refreshed generations, but Campy doesn't worry about chasing the market, and the production, testing, and release schedule of the H11 EPS Ergo+ Hydraulic Lever and Disc Brake Caliper proves why. All of that history comes with a certain burden. Namely, Campy can't afford the bug-riddled roll-outs that so often plague the disc brakes of other brands. The brand's components are still often the benchmark of form, function, and innovation, but it insists on ensuring that innovation is equal to its exacting standards--the same standards that have ensured the company defines so much of cycling's history. Despite that history, though, Campy was beaten to the punch for hydraulic road discs. "Beaten to the punch" is a rare thing for the Italian brand; however, it also means there's a healthy body of existing competition to compare the H11 system to, and Campy does just that. The brand claims increased stopping power compared to the current crop of road disc brakes, and it does so without sacrificing its penchant for ergonomics and aesthetics. The hoods remain relatively unchanged, gaining just 8mm in height in order to accommodate the hydraulic reservoir. That extra real estate is hardly noticeable largely because the proper hoods are virtually unchanged. If anything, those 8mm only serve to further increase hand-to-hood security during long miles in the wind spent on the hoods' horns. The shifting is Campagnolo's EPS system, which has already been proven throughout the racing calendar by the likes of Quintana and t...

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...

Campagnolo Record 11 4-Arm Crankset Campagnolo Record 11 4-Arm Crankset
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 Record 11 EPS Rear Derailleur Campagnolo Record 11 EPS Rear Derailleur
Computers and binary code aside, the pride and joy of Campagnolo's new Electronic Power Shift, or EPS, is the Record 11 EPS Rear Derailleur. It represents the vanguard of shifting technology, and is the result of twenty years of research and development by Campagnolo. Elegant, advanced, and precise, the Record 11 EPS Rear Derailleur is a benchmark in component innovation, and is already a must-have for anyone seeking the best. Even Campagnolo naysayers will be drooling upon sight of the Record 11 EPS Rear Derailleur, proving that some things are worth the wait. Simply put, the Record 11 EPS Rear Derailleur is smart. It operates on an electronic actuator comprised of a gear motor and a built-in resolver sensor. The actuator controls a worm screw, in the place of a mechanical spring screw, to move the derailleur. In turn, the actuator's resolver sensor is in constant communication with Digital Tech Intelligence, the brains of the system, charting every movement of the derailleur and positioning it optimally, relative to the cassette. The relationship between the electronic actuator and DTI brings an exciting new feature to EPS: Multi-Shift Technology. The new Multi-Shift enables a shift through all eleven cogs, up or down the cassette, in one compression of the shift lever, and in one and a half seconds. You read that right. To help alleviate the necessity for auto-correction, Campy studied the detrimental effects of vibration on electronic components, and applied tin to the electronic actuator to reduce play. Going even further, Campagnolo engineers bolstered the strength and rigidity of the derailleur by creating a parallelogram carbon fiber derailleur cage with an alloy inner plate. The upper and lower bodies of the derailleur are coated in a techno polymer carbon fiber blend that is both functional and beautifully Campagnolo. The differences between Super Record and Record EPS rear derailleurs are minimal. The Record 11's rear derailleur has a solid parallelogr...

Campagnolo Record 11 EPS Shifters Campagnolo Record 11 EPS Shifters
Campagnolo. The name resonates in the heart of every bike aficionado, and in some cycling languages, translates to 'the best product money can buy.' For decades, Campagnolo has been at the forefront of technological innovation, continuously redefining what can be dreamed and what can be created; it has now surpassed our dreams with the creation of Electronic Power Shift, or EPS. A precise, reliable, and accurate electronic shifting system is remarkable, but it loses meaning without the touch and thrill of user engagement. The direct connection between the rider and the ride of a lifetime is at the heart of the beautiful and ergonomic Record 11 Ergopower Shifters. Record 11 EPS differs little from its big brother, Super Record 11 EPS, and the same goes for their corresponding EPS shifters. The Super Record 11 EPS Ergopower Shifters' have an almost negligible weight advantage, making the Record 11 EPS shift levers the choice for canny consumers looking to lessen the hit on the wallet of the EPS technology. Campagnolo broke the mold, quite literally, of lever design when it developed the EPS 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 Record 11; 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, Ca...

Campagnolo Record 11 Front Derailleur Campagnolo Record 11 Front Derailleur
The Campagnolo Record 11 Front Derailleur is virtually the same as its Super Record counterpart, with the one difference being the substitution of alloy hardware for titanium. This results in a claimed weight gain of seven grams for Record, but it still enjoys the new cable pull ratio in the Record shifters that grant an extra position of trim while in the small ring. This extra trim allows you limitless access to all 22 gear combinations in your drivetrain with no chain rubbing, which proves that even the benchmark of front derailleurs can benefit from the occasional improvement. 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 cage is a combination of alloy and carbon, 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 Record 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.

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 E 1800 DB23 Spline Wheel DT Swiss E 1800 DB23 Spline Wheel
If you're looking for a no-nonsense wheelset for all of your drop bar, off-road adventures, the E 1800 DB23 Spline Wheel from DT Swiss fits the bill quite nicely. It's more than ready and able to bust out an epic day on some unknown gravel one weekend and help pilot you through mud bogs and sandpits at your local CX series the next. This wheelset, thanks to its tubeless ready rim construction and disc compatibility, also lends itself well to the commuter. As we have come to expect with every wheel from DT Swiss, this one comes out of the box built to the utmost precision with quality, durable components. The tubeless ready aluminum rims are 23mm deep with widths of 20mm inner and 24mm external. That puts it right about at the perfect width for getting the most out of wider road, 'cross, and gravel tires. The 370 Straightpull hubs are splined for center lock disc use and for Shimano/SRAM 11-speed cassettes with endcaps for 15 x 100mm front, 12 x 142mm rear. 24 DT aero comp spokes lace each hub to the rim providing a lightweight build you'll appreciate on the climbs, an excellent ride that helps smooth out the washboards, and a touch of aerodynamics, always a help while motoring in the flats. The spokes are of the straight pull variety, so there isn't the traditional j-bend at the head. This design allows for superior strength to weight ratio and better spoke alignment with its more direct trajectory. The end result is a stiffer and more responsive wheel for better handling when pushed hard. As a nice final touch, DT Swiss injects a patented liquid into the alloy nipples that helps prevent the nipples from loosening and thus, lower spoke tension, for an extremely durable build that stays true for many miles.

Easton EC90 SL Cinch Crankset Easton EC90 SL Cinch Crankset
With the recent merger of Easton and Race Face, the former was able to bring the latter's future-proof Cinch crankset technology from mountain bikes to road, cyclocross, and gravel. We built the direct-mount, one-by Easton EC90 SL Crankset primarily for 'cross and gravel, but the crank arms' modularity means it can adapt to the spider-life of a double as needed. That modularity is the key to the crankset's future-proof status. Rather than being adrift in an ever-expanding sea of proprietary standards and slightly tweaked dimensions, the self-sponsored cyclist can invest once in the Cinch-equipped EC90 SL crank system with confidence that, regardless of what the future holds, the chassis will be compatible. The crank arms themselves are Easton's EC90 SL carbon fiber, a material that's already been proven from cockpit components to the soles of some of cycling's most popular race shoes. The included rings say "Easton," but they feature a narrow/wide tooth profile similar to the one-by standouts from Race Face, so the chainring clears debris caked-on from peanut-butter mud pits and maintains chain retention across washboard and over-sized gravel.

Easton EC90 SLX Handlebar Easton EC90 SLX Handlebar
Easton Cycling initially made its name by producing competition-grade alloys, and -- when carbon first became a viable option for performance enhancement -- the company demonstrated its innovative nous to become one of the leading pioneers in the synthetic field. The EC90 SLX Handlebar represents the culmination of a tradition of development innovative cycling products that, in reality, are just a hell of a lot of fun to ride. While Easton manufactures a few aerodynamic models, the EC90 SLX is myopically focused on reducing weight. And it does a smashing job of it. The EC90 SLX isn't the absolute lightest bar we've seen, but the bars that beat it on the scale typically sacrifice reach and drop. These dimensions have already taken a pretty significant hit from the ergo trend, and those of us on frames larger than 50cm will definitely appreciate the extra millimeters of real estate, even if it comes with a 15g penalty. Given its dimensions and weight, the EC90 SLX is one of the lightest models on the market, and the fact that it does so while dropping almost $100 off the typical price for bars in this class definitely helps make up the difference. Finally, the MCD shape and TaperWall technologies let Easton hit weight targets while still modelling recesses for cable routing.

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. The ENVE Carbon Disc Cross Fork is available with a 1. 125-inch to 1. 25-inch tapered steerer tube an...

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.

This team stole the hearts of the cycling world with its class and determination to fight it out for stage wins against the goliaths of the World Tour, all while rolling on the new ENVE SES 2. 2 Tubular Wheelset. 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 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.

On the pavement, you'd be hard-pressed to find a wheelset more versatile than ENVE's SES 3. 4 platform. Its balance of low weight for climbing and flatland speed exceeds its rim depth expectations. With an updated rim shape and the addition of disc rotors and tubeless compatibility for 2017, the SES 3. 4 Carbon Disc Road Clincher Wheelset with DT Swiss 240 Hubs looks to become a one-wheelset quiver to tackle all manner of gravel and cyclocross without sacrificing its road race-ready heritage. The new rim profile features a monstrous 21mm internal rim width for both front and rear, which compares favorably to the previous 3. 4's combination of 18. 5/16. 5mm front/rear mix. ENVE credits the wider stance for improving aerodynamics with a 25mm tire while also boosting tire volume. This in turn allows lower tire pressure for a smoother, more efficient ride and compatibility with the wider tires needed for all-road adventuring. Swapping the tubes for tubeless will take full advantage of the new rim width by reducing pinch flat risk and further reducing both pressure and rolling resistance. In the saddle, this makes for a nearly perfect blend of speed and comfort. The latest SES 3. 4 continues ENVE's commitment to mixed rim height, but it brings the numbers closer together. The front rim gains 3mm to 38mm in depth, and the rear rim loses 3mm to clock in at 42mm. 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. As with all its SES wheels, ENVE uses its most sophisticated technology and engineering techniques to create this fast, stiff, and aerodynamic wheelset.

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.

ENVE's new SES 4. 5 AR DT Swiss 240 Disc Brake Clincher Wheelset with DT Swiss 240 Hubs was originally inspired by the necessity of running beefy road tires on grueling European cobbles and a desire to avoid the usual aerodynamic sacrifices and questionable handling caused when pairing big tires with skinny rims. Compared to the OG SES 4. 5, which is designed around 23-25mm tires, the 4. 5 AR profiles are built to pair with plush 28-30mm tires for extra cushion across jarring surfaces and--counterintuitively--increased speed when the smooth pavement returns. This wheelset serves the ever-growing segment of riders searching for wheels with multi-surface versatility to expand their ride routes to spur-of-the-moment surface changes. The AR initialism stands for All Road, but these wheels (and the generous tires they accommodate) are built to keep going even after all roads end. We would be remiss to categorize these as just a wider version of the 4. 5 though, as ENVE engineers created a whole new carbon layup. The new lay-up makes the most out of the 4. 5 AR's 25mm internal rim width, disc-specific hub pairing, and multi-surface 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 pavement, graded gravel, and even singletrack with snappy speed and stability. Another tweak to the usual road design is the inclusion of a hookless bead, which is inspired by ENVE's mountain rims and increases tubeless reliability with a clean tire to rim interaction. Even with all those changes, the 4. 5 AR sees a continuation of ENVE's now signature offset front and rear rim depths by featuring a 49mm front and 55mm rear rim. Like with the standard 4. 5, these depths inhabit in the sweet spot between the more climbing oriented 3. 4 and TT/crit-leaning 6. 7 wheelsets.

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 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.

This version comes outfitted with ENVE's new textured Generation 2 brake track and pads for an added dollop of control to top off its versatility.ENVE has made something of a signature out of its shallow front and deeper rear wheel pairings, and the 4. 5s fall into the sweet spot between its 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. 5s have laid claim to being the all-rounder wheel of choice for riders across the world. 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 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.

ENVE has reached such a superior level with their SES 4. 5 Carbon Road Clincher Road Wheelset, that in addition to the ENVE Carbon Ceramic Hubs, they should pack a fresh pair of podium shoes in the box. And maybe a cycling cap, too, to ensure that no one has an excuse for wearing a baseball hat on the top step. Smoother rolling and lighter than even the winning SES 4. 5 rims used by MTN-Qhubeka in the 2015 Tour, this wheelset is aerodynamically optimized to waste none of your wattage output. The rims' dimensions (48mm deep and 27mm wide in the front, and 56mm deep and 25. 5mm wide in the rear) mean the wheelset is an evolved system that shapes the airflow to stabilize your ride and transport you to the finish line.At the hubs, you'll find precision and quality that transcends even Tour status. DT Swiss star ratchet freehub engagement system, CeramicSpeed bearings, and ENVE's own single-piece carbon aesthetics set you apart with outright distinction. And with an improved Gen 2 brake track for wet-conditions braking, the weather--just like your competition--is an afterthought.

ENVE SES 5.6 Disc Wheelset - Clincher ENVE SES 5.6 Disc Wheelset - Clincher
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. ENVE routes the carbon fibers around each hole to maintain continuous fiber integrity, which results in both increased rim rigidity and ...

ENVE SES 7.8 Disc Wheelset - Clincher ENVE SES 7.8 Disc Wheelset - Clincher
Opting in on the power and modulation of a disc brake road whip shouldn't mean that you have to give up on the never ending quest for speed and aerodynamics. With that in mind ENVE brings you the SES 7. 8 Disc Wheelset, which boasts all the wind-cheating, screaming speed of the original SES 7. 8 paired with equally aggressive disc brake stopping power. Like the rest of ENVE's SES line, the 7. 8 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 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. ENVE routes the carbon fibers around each hole to maintain continuous fiber integrity, which results in both increased rim rigidity and lower weight. 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 Aerobar ENVE SES Aerobar
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 Aerobar follows 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. The bar includes 5, 10, and 20mm spacers, an adjustable pad with from 125mm to 200mm, and a stack height that ...

Ergon SRX3 Saddle Ergon SRX3 Saddle
Ergon sets its SRX3 line of saddles apart from traditional road saddle designs with a pronounced V-shape, giving road cyclists and cyclocross racers more opportunity to shift on the saddle as they move through different pedaling postures. The SRX3 Saddle occupies the entry-level space in that line, featuring the same shape as its pricier siblings paired with a mix of more affordable materials. If you're looking to branch into a different saddle shape for your road bike or are trying to outfit a 'cross bike with a saddle designed to accommodate the variety of positions you'll occupy throughout a race, the SRX3 is a practical investment. The SRX3 is constructed with a blend of common materials that include CroMo steel rails and a fiberglass composite shell, but the AirCell padding atop the saddle is less common. Proprietary to Ergon, AirCell features layers of tiny air pockets that absorb harsh road vibrations and provide support whether you're mashing on grass or spinning along your favorite road loop. Additional support comes in the form of the slight upturn at the rear of the SRX3, included to make it easier for riders to push back into the saddle and send an added burst of power to the pedals while climbing or grinding through a sandpit. The saddle anticipates quick dismounts at barriers and ahead of run-ups, and its overall flat topography was designed to make the process as smooth as possible.

Fabric Alm Ultimate Saddle Fabric Alm Ultimate Saddle
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).

The Fabric Scoop Pro saddle is simple. It's lightweight and it's tough. The Scoop comes in four varieties: Elite, Race, Pro, and Ultimate. The Scoop Pro starts with carbon fiber rails and a nylon base. Fabric says its Scoop Saddle is "designed for everyone," and that's exactly what it is. Like many of today's bicycle saddles, the Scoop is designed to work with road, mountain, or cyclocross bikes. Unlike many of today's saddles, however, the Scoop gives you options for fit, feel, and style. You can choose between two different base materials for the Scoop saddle: nylon or carbon fiber. The Scoop Pro comes with a flexible nylon base. This base is both lightweight and comfortable. The Scoop also offers three different rail material options. The Pro model comes with Fabric's 9mm oval carbon fiber rails, which are both the lightest and stiffest in the line. The Scoop saddle comes in three different shapes, which vary in curvature from tip to tail. The three shapes are Flat, Shallow, and Radius. Which saddle you choose depends on which saddle is most comfortable for your body type. All of Fabric's Scoop saddles feature dense polyurethane foam for cushioning and a waterproof microfiber shell fabric, which is available in either white or black.

Fabric Scoop Race Saddle Fabric Scoop Race Saddle
Replacing your stock saddle certainly can mean investing a significant amount of money, but it doesn't have to. We commend brands like UK-based Fabric for crafting saddles out of affordable materials that are accessible to a range of self-sponsored cyclists. The brand's Scoop line fits this description aptly, and Fabric fittingly makes it in three different shapes to accommodate different riding styles. If you're racing, the Scoop Flat has the aggressive profile you're looking for to pair with your slammed frame geometry. If being in an "aero" position no longer holds much appeal for you, the Scoop Shallow encourages a more natural body position in the saddle as you duck into your drops and onto your hoods over the course of a ride. And if you're commuting and favor comfort and practicality over speed, the Scoop Radius' upright orientation is ideal. While each saddle's shaping varies significantly, Fabric keeps construction the same throughout, using a nylon base engineered to flex so that you don't feel every pebble or piece of road grit you ride over. The forgiving nylon sits atop hollow titanium-alloy rails, which manage to be both durable and light without nudging the saddle's price to extreme heights. Though Fabric favors minimal designs for the Flat and the Shallow models, both come with the same foam cushioning as their more forgiving sibling, the Radius. The padding adds some long-ride comfort and helps to absorb road noise, but Fabric demonstrates restraint when using it to make sure you won't feel as though you're perched atop a pillow. Finally, a loyal waterproof microfiber cover protects the internals from the often cruel elements, equipping the Scoop to become a fixture on your frame for the rides, races, and commutes to come.

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. It's pre-installed with four volume spacers, so you don't blow through all the travel at the slightest bump, seeing it only has 40 millimeters of travel. In fact, FOX allows you to run up to eight spacers for a more progressive ramp-up to avoid harshness and bottoming out. Please note, since this is an early iteration, the 32 Float SC AX isn't fully compatible on every gravel bike, especially smaller frames where the fork's crown might come into contact with the down tube. Also, it makes your bike's hea...

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.

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 K-Force Compact Handlebar FSA K-Force Compact Handlebar
The FSA K-Force is (despite the strange naming convention) the most popular drop bar shape among experienced cyclists. Compact, in FSA-speak, just means that these bars have a shallow, round drop--not the oddly shaped anatomic bars. The 125mm/80mm drop-reach combo with a 4-degree sweep and the standard 40-44cm widths provides a comfortable platform with plenty of hand positions to alleviate discomfort after hours in the saddle. The 110mm center section is designed to accommodate clip-on bars. The continuous Kevlar/carbon fiber weave is an excellent blend of strength, stiffness, and low weight.

FSA SL-K Modular BB386EVO Adventure Crankset FSA SL-K Modular BB386EVO Adventure Crankset
We have to admit -- the idea of embarking down the random dirt roads we spot off of the interstate just to see where they lead enchants us. There's something about this unknown that is enticing, and even gives us a child-like nostalgia for the wild-west, frontiersmen, and explorers. While many of these roads just lead to pastures, fields of cattle and sheep, there is the odd road that winds you up to a breathtaking canyon overlook that rewards your senses. But, we don't do it for the reward, often times we just do it for the journey. FSA's SL-K Modular BB386EVO Adventure Crankset is tailored, as the name might have you guessing, to the adventurer. With lightweight construction that lets you send yourself into the beyond, tour further, and push up tedious miles of gravel to test yourself and allow yourself to ignite your inner explorer as you push beyond the pavement. The SL-K's adventure model is hungry for the moments when you head off of the beaten path, with gearing for easier climbing and conquering hurdles, and a compact design that's well suited for touring setups and gravel bikes. The versatility of a 46-30t crankset gives you the relief you need when pedaling into headwinds on remote desert highways, and powering up through fire roads in the forests of interior BC, and the power for crushing down windy canyons, or rolling onto singletrack. While the SL-K Adventure and Gossamer Adventure might sport some similarities when it comes to versatile gearing, and bottom bracket standards, the SL-K excels beyond the Gossamer with incredibly lightweight hollow carbon fiber crank arms, which both increases the stiffness of your pedal stroke, and lightens your load when you're powering up remote gravel roads. The SL-K Modular Adventure Crankset uses a direct mount outer chainring, and an inner chainring with a 90mm bcd, with four chromoly chainring bolts to ensure durability. The inner rings attach to the crank with four bolts, as opposed to the 5 used in the gossam...

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.

Fulcrum Racing Zero Carbon Wheelset - Clincher Fulcrum Racing Zero Carbon Wheelset - Clincher
The Fulcrum Racing Zero Carbon Clincher Wheelset builds on the stiffness and general efficiency of the original aluminum-rimmed Zero with an upgrade to carbon fiber for improved responsiveness and speed off the line. 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.

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 ...

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 Jet 9 Plus Black Carbon Disc Brake Wheelset - Clincher HED Jet 9 Plus Black Carbon Disc Brake Wheelset - Clincher
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. But like Zirbel, you're interested in the Jet 9 wheels primarily for speed, not stopping, and HED also knows that faster speeds require a heightened sense of control that's often at odds with wheels of this depth.

HED Jet Plus Black Disc Wheel HED Jet Plus Black Disc Wheel
As with most things wheel-related, HED proved itself an (extremely) early adapter when its late founder launched a disc wheel almost three decades ago. 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.

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.

Industry Nine C46 Aero Wheelset - Clincher Industry Nine C46 Aero Wheelset - Clincher
Industry Nine's C46 Aero wheelset checks many of the boxes we're looking for in a road racing wheelset. Featuring Reynolds' Aero series 46mm rims with DET technology laced to the excellent Torch hubs, these wheels are perfect for the rouleur looking for one wheelset to get them through a season of racing on varied terrain. The Reynolds Aero rims are on board with the wider is better movement and have an external width of 27mm to better pair with modern, wider road tires. Tipping the scales at 1540 grams they offer an aero boost when the pace picks up but won't hold you back on the bergs. Unique to Reynolds Aero rims is the sharp trailing edge that helps the air maintain longer attachment for less turbulence and thus, better aerodynamics. You'll enjoy a quicker wheel and one that is more stable in crosswind situations. Such a fast rim deserves to be laced to a quality hub and that's where the Torch series road hubs come in. The front wheel gets 20 radially laced spokes and a 24-hole rear is laced in a 2:1 pattern with 16 spokes on the rear drive side flange and 8 opposing spokes on the non-drive side. Rear wheels have dish caused by offsetting the rim relative to hub's centerline because of the freehub body. By using a 2:1 pattern, it helps even out spoke tension reducing peak stress loads on the spokes and rim and fatigue cycles incurred in a traditional 24 spoke rear wheel. So you can truly enjoy a lower spoke count wheel without fear of any durability issues. Turning your pedaling power into forwarding propulsion is the Torch road freehub. These hubs use the same drive ring and pawls as the Torch Mountain hubs which can withstand an unheard of 700 ft/lbs of torque. Since quick engagement isn't quite as crucial on the road as it is on the trail, the pawl count is reduced from 6 to 3 helping to lower drag and weight, while still achieving a quick for road 6-degree engagement. Smooth rolling cartridge bearings and a low-friction freehub seal reduce any unneces...

Whether it's racing or training, we seek out fast, stable, and durable wheelsets to give us the most out of every ride. We also have a soft spot for bicycle components manufactured in the USA which is why we're really excited about the Industry Nine C58 Aero Wheelset. This ultra-quick wheelset is hand built in North Carolina and if you are looking to supercharge your road bike, look no further.At the heart of this wheelset is the excellent Torch road hubset that is machined in-house at its North Carolina facility. On the surface, the exquisite machining and deep anodization grab your attention but these hubs prove that beauty is more than just skin deep. The Torch three pawl driver is very similar to that in the mountain hubset which can withstand an unbelievable 700 ft/lbs of torque. We like to think that we put out the same power numbers as a chipped diesel engine during our sprints, and even if that isn't the case, it's good to know the hubs can handle it. Hubs also feature Teflon contact seals at the endcaps, protecting hub internals from rain and muck while running drag free so you don't lose any precious watts accumulated over the hard training miles.Industry Nine sticks to tried-and-true stainless steel spokes for its road wheelsets and this one is built with Sapim's CX-Rays. These spokes are popular on many boutique wheel builds, and for good reason. The forged, bladed spokes have a reputation as some of the strongest, stiffest, lightest, and most aero options for lacing a hub to a rim. These spokes are often used to build up mountain wheelsets as well so we don't question the durability when hammering these wheels over cobbles or pave. The 20 spoke front wheel is radially laced and the 24 spoke rear wheel gets a 2:1 lacing pattern with eight of those spokes on the non-drive side, and 16 on the drive side. This better balances the spoke tension between the drive and non-drive side for less wind-up under power for quicker accelerations and a more respons...

Industry Nine C62 Aero Tubeless Wheelset - Clincher Industry Nine C62 Aero Tubeless Wheelset - Clincher
Wind resistance is but one hurdle that can substantially affect your average speed on a ride. If you've been putting in the efforts on the bike and are looking for an edge over your rivals, aero wheels are a good place to invest. Industry Nine's C62 Aero Tubeless Wheelset - Clincher features a tubeless ready Reynolds carbon rim with a 17. 5mm inner and 25mm external width in a wind-cheating depth of 62mm. The aero benefits are further enhanced with the incorporation of Reynolds' Swirl Lip Generator technology, helping manage airflow across the leading edge of the rim improving stability, especially in crosswinds. And if you think all of this aero tech comes in at the expense of creating a heavy wheelset, you'd be wrong as this set comes in at only 1600 grams. When you add it all up, we can wholeheartedly recommend these as a perfect do-it-all wheelset for every day and race day. This Torch series wheelset receives a 24 hole 2:1 lacing pattern on the rear wheel. This lacing pattern helps reduce weight, promotes more even spoke tensions and provides excellent long-term durability. Rear wheels get 16 spokes on the rear drive side flange, and 8 on the opposing side. Because rear wheels feature dish caused by the freehub, this orientation helps balance spoke tension between both sides reducing peak stress loads on the spokes and rim and the fatigue cycle incurred on a traditional 24 spoke wheel. You can enjoy a better riding lighter weight rear wheel without the durability issues that can often plague lower spoke count wheels. The Torch rear hub is built with the same drive ring and pawls as the legendary Torch mountain hubs. Ponder this during your next sprint interval: the drive mechanism is rated to withstand 700 ft/lbs of torque. The pawl count is reduced from 6 to 3 versus its mountain brethren for lower drag and weight while still achieving a very respectable 6-degree engagement. Dropping resistance while coasting down is a slicker freehub seal. Torch hubs fea...

ISM PN 1.1 Saddle ISM PN 1.1 Saddle
The restrictions set by governing bodies on saddle placement has led to a cohort of time trialists and triathletes spending countless miles perched precariously and uncomfortably on the narrow tip of traditional road saddles, trying to eek the most power out of a flat time trial course. This position is fast, but may be putting unhealthy pressure on sensitive nerves and tissues. ISM addresses this issue with the ISM PN 1. 1 Saddle and its signature split fork, stocky-nosed design. The PN 1. 1 may look a bit alien next to a regular saddle, but it's built for comfort and function in a time trial position. Based on ISM's line-topping Attack saddle, the PN 1. 1 features a blunted nose and cutout split to provide a more supportive platform than traditional pointy-nosed saddles, even when you're scooted up on the rivet to squeeze out those few extra watts. This saddle provides a bit more padding than the Attack to counter the minimal chamois found in most triathlon-specifc shorts, and the unique split design reduces pressure on soft tissue and nerves to increase overall comfort and reduce numbness. The ISM PN 1. 1 features an extra narrow, 110mm rear width to provide riders of all types with a variety of positioning options out on the road. This profile allows you to scoot back on the saddle to tackle a climb, perch on the nose to power through a flat section, and change positions as needed without any worries related to thigh and hamstring clearance. The result is less chafing, less numbness, and more fun on every ride.

Knight 35 Carbon Fibre/DT Swiss 240S Road Wheelset - Clincher Knight 35 Carbon Fibre/DT Swiss 240S Road Wheelset - Clincher
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...

Knight 65 Carbon Fibre/Aivee SR5 Road Wheelset - Clincher Knight 65 Carbon Fibre/Aivee SR5 Road Wheelset - Clincher
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...

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 95 Carbon Fibre/DT Swiss 240S Road Wheelset - Clincher Knight 95 Carbon Fibre/DT Swiss 240S Road Wheelset - Clincher
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. This system began with Computational Fluid Dynamics software, proceeded through no fewer than two rounds of wind tunnel testing,...

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 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 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 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. The Instant Drive 360 engagement mechanism replaces the usual pawl system with the dual-ratcheting rings formally found only in designer hubs on custom hand-builts.

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. 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.

Mavic Ksyrium Pro Carbon SL C Wheelset - Clincher Mavic Ksyrium Pro Carbon SL C Wheelset - Clincher
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. The new hubs are laced to the rims with 24 straight-pull steel spokes arranged in Mavic's Isopulse pattern, with radial drive-side and two-cross non-drive side. This pattern provides the right balance of stiffness, preparing the wheels to manage the added torque from disc brakes and reducing wobbles whi...

Whether you're a devoted Mavic fan with stacks of retired Ksyrium hoops in the basement or a newcomer to the line, the introduction of Mavic's Ksyrium Pro Disc Wheel is something to pay attention to. 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. Mavic ships a set of its front- and rear-specific GripLink and PowerLink tires with the Ksyrium Pro Discs, which the brand creates with the tire pros at Hutchinson to guarantee longevity and sound construction. Up front, GripLink resists flats and hangs onto the road when you need it to, while PowerLink features a lower rolling resistance to keep you moving.

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 ...

Members of Team Steylearts are in the trenches most weekends from September through January slogging through the European muck on its M3T Disc wheelset in search of cyclocross gold. In 2014, Eric Marcotte rocketed himself off of Lookout Mountain in Chattanooga, Tennessee and win the 2014 US Pro National Championship ahead of who's who of professional road cyclists that call American soil home. With the M5C DT Swiss 240S Road Wheelset - Clincher, you'll get the perfect do-it-all depth carbon rim laced to what is pretty much the industry benchmark hub, the DT Swiss 240. The model name, M5 gives you an idea of the depth the rims are packing. More specifically, they are 55mm deep. Rim width is the other critical measurement to know and the tale of the tape on the M5 is 24mm wide letting you get more volume in your tires so you can run lower PSI for a smoother ride that really lets you heel the bike over on fast descents and crit turns. Additionally, lower pressure tires have the ability to decrease rolling resistance and the additional rim width better matches the profile of a wider tire so the aerodynamic properties are preserved. The construction of the M5's uses Mercury's Dual Carbon Layer Process or DLP. DLP blends high- and mid-moduli carbon fibers to balance between the lightweight and stiffness of the former and the fatigue-resistance and durability of the latter. DLP also involves the infusion of basalt fibers on the brake track to reduce heat build-up and increase stopping power. Managing heat is critical in a carbon clincher wheel especially on long descents and everyone can appreciate the increased stopping power which is a common complaint of carbon wheels.

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.

PowerTap C1 Chainrings with Sensor PowerTap C1 Chainrings with Sensor
Trying to decide which type of power meter is right for you demands considerable time and energy. Once you figure out what you want and how much you're willing to pay, you have to delve into pages of proprietary terms and technology to figure out which products actually match that description. If you're looking for dual-sided power metrics and are running a five-bolt 110mm BCD crankset right now, consider the PowerTap C1 Chainrings with Sensor. They won't work with every crankset available, but offer a relatively wallet-friendly, dependable way to measure your watts if you have a compatible crankset already. For this price, getting precise, individual left- and right-side measurements is asking a lot. However, the C1 system does split your stroke in half to give its best calculation of each side's power, using built-in motion sensors to track cadence and power from within the unit. As you're coasting through a steep descent, don't worry about having to look down at your head unit and back-pedal; the system zeroes on its own as soon as you stop pedaling so that you can focus on the steep and winding road ahead. Compatible with Bluetooth SMART and ANT+, the C1 gets along with just about every major computer on the market too, so you won't have to swap to a different head unit to see data while you ride.

Handsomely finished with uni-directional carbon fiber, its precise layup is designed to be stiff when needed sprinting and climbing, yet comfortable over chattery roads.Take a look at the tops of these bars. You'll notice the bar is constructed with an aerofoil shape giving maximum aerodynamics on the road. To further cheat the wind, pair it with the new Vibe stem and its low-profile top cap and unique faceplate with reverse bolts for reduced turbulence. The wider top also gives you a secure and comfortable place to hold onto the bars as well as increased rigidity.PRO builds components for the pro racer where it becomes a question of when, not if, you're gonna crash. The PRO Vibe aerobar features Innegra fibers to strengthen the bar's most vulnerable areas without adding unnecessary weight. Riders can now get up, dust themselves off, and carry on with the day on the same bike. Any road shifter/brake lever will work on this bar but what makes it special is its compatibility with Di2 bar end junction boxes for cleaner integration. Cable ports let you feed Shimano Di2 or mechanical shift housing and hydraulic or regular brake housing through the bars.PRO adds a textured finish where you clamp your lever bodies to the bar as well as where the stem clamps. This increases the friction between the clamps and the bars so it grips tightly requiring less torque. The PRO Vibe Carbon Aero Handlebar has a 31. 8mm clamp diameter and comes in two widths -- 40 and 42cm measured center-to-center. The compact bend has a drop of 130mm and a reach of 80mm.

With flimsy ultralight wheels becoming the norm in the industry, being able to find solid wheelset that won't weigh your bike down has become increasingly difficult. Profile Designs understood your plight and quickly got to work designing the 1/Fifty Carbon Clincher Wheelset--a stiff and stable wheelset with a full carbon aero rim that doesn't cost more than your frame. The wide wheels and full-carbon aero rim yields stability when pummeled with a crosswind, and the Tg resin quickly dissipates heat for reliable braking during long, winding descents. In order to keep the price of the wheels within most cyclists' budget, Profile Design utilized the same production model it used to build its TwentyFour series by incorporating a semi-automated system that streamlines the manufacturing process.

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 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.

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.

Happily for us, Profile also brought its expertise in aerodynamics and reputation for durability along for the ride. To create the 78/TwentyFour, Profile collaborated with Computational Fluid Dynamics specialists and spent many hours in the wind tunnel to determine the best rim shape to reduce drag and stay steady in crosswinds. Part of this process included mapping out weather data gathered from recent high-level cycling and triathlon events to recreate wind conditions and test potential wheel behavior in real-world conditions while still taking advantage of the controlled data gathering of a wind tunnel. The result of all this analysis is a wheel that isn't just fast in a sterile lab environment -- it's fast out on the road and will cut through the wind like a hot knife through the butter that you've given up eating while cutting down to race weight. As far as shape is concerned, the name says it all with these wheels. They feature a 78mm deep-dish, aerodynamic rim with an external width of 24. 5mm.

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 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.

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.

Profile Design T5+ Aluminum Clip-On Aerobar Profile Design T5+ Aluminum Clip-On Aerobar
If you're a fan of the speed benefits of racing with aerobars, but not the feel of carbon, Profile Design's Aluminum version of its T5+ Clip-On Aerobar offers a similar design and actually weighs in less than the carbon counterparts. With this model, Profile Design offers an affordable clip-on option to choose from for getting your road bike ready for a tri, with a few different features but the same high-performance shape and room for customization as the carbon T5+.As mentioned, the extensions and basebar of the T5+ are made with aluminum, and Profile Design uses its J2 extension brackets, which offer plenty of opportunity to adjust both the length and rotation of the armrest position. The armrests themselves are made with F-19a aluminum topped by cushy EVA foam pads that are cleanly attached without the use of straps. They offer four fore/aft positions for you to choose from and 15 degrees of room to adjust the rotation to get the right fit for your race. The T5+ extensions were designed with performance in mind, and they're much more aggressive than other models from Profile Design. Well-suited to racing, they include just a slight 15 degree ski-bend to keep your wrists and hands comfortable, and they weigh about 500g, compared to the 575g T5+ carbon.

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.

Reynolds 46 Aero Disc Carbon Wheelset - Tubeless Reynolds 46 Aero Disc Carbon Wheelset - Tubeless
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 tubeless 46 Aero Disc Brake Carbon Wheelset so you won't lose any aerodynamic advantages or stiffness if you're transitioning over from a rim brake deep section setup. Weight gain is negligible and we can almost promise you that any extra grams 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 eliminates 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 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 mostly between five 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.

The rim's deep dish is shaped in a NACA-profiled, tapered V-shape that ends with a sharp trailing edge.

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 Assault SLG Disc Brake Carbon Wheelset - Tubeless Reynolds Assault SLG Disc Brake Carbon Wheelset - Tubeless
Listening in on post-ride coffee conversation could easily have you believing that the only way to be a proper cyclist is to have a myriad of wheelsets in the garage, each earmarked for a specific type of terrain or elevation change. We, however, don't have the space nor finances for that many wheels, and prefer a wheelset that can roll with our more spontaneous ride route choices--a wheelset like the tubeless, disc brake-equipped Reynolds Assault SLG Carbon. Newly updated with stealthy waterslide graphics, the Assault's 41mm profile hits right in the sweet spot between low weight and aerodynamics, bringing Reynolds' famed crosswind stability to nearly any all-road application. Whether you're winding up for a hilly coastal road race, toeing the line at a Midwest criterium, or barreling towards the barriers in the SoCal sand, the Assaults are up to the challenge. An all-new hubset builds on this wheelset's famed versatility with smooth, fast turns and even quicker engagement than its predecessor for a ride that rivals the responsiveness more often found in wheelsets at much higher price points. Careful machining allows Reynolds to specify tighter tolerances than stamped hubs, which results in a higher quality end product that will confidently snap up to speed when you step on the pedals. Traditionalists among us will appreciate the ability to run the Assault as a tube-type clincher, and for those of us looking to ditch tubes, the rims' redesigned shelves and lips hold a tubeless tire securely at low or high PSI. The lower rolling resistance and comfort of a tubeless ride is complemented by the Assault's wide rim, which lets tires sit with more volume in a way that Reynolds calls "modern" but we call less rolling resistance, better cornering, and a more comfortable ride. Last, but far from least, the Assault utilizes Reynolds' Enhanced Swirl Lip Generator (SLG) design. There's a heap of wind tunnel tech behind SLG, but in a nutshell Reynolds adds a small lip of c...

Road plus is here in a big way. Many cross and gravel frames can handle the smaller diameter yet wider hoops and tires and manufacturers are committed to providing product for plus. And just like it changed the landscape of mountain biking, gravel riders are appreciating the lower pressure and added traction that comes with running wider tires as well. The Reynold's ATR 650 Carbon Disc Wheelset lets you continue your drop bar adventures when the smooth pavement ends. These wheels allow you to traverse roads and trails less traveled with wider and stronger carbon fiber rims designed to support wider rubber. Set up your gravel bike with a set of ATR 650's and some wide all-road rubber and you'll experience the lightness, stiffness, and comfort that will give you an edge on an epic gravel race or a weeklong bikepacking trip. The rims feature a healthy 23mm internal and a 32mm external width that plumps up road plus tires for a greater footprint that improves comfort, rolling resistance, and traction over chip seal county roads and gravel paths. The 40mm depth rims improve aerodynamics and increase stiffness making the bike more responsive and handle fast corners like it's on rails. Set up the tires tubeless and you'll enjoy a new world of suppleness and avoid pinch flats or any other puncture induced deflations. The ATR rims are laced to Reynolds Allroad Disc hubs using 24 steel spokes on both the front and rear for lightweight performance and an excellent ride quality. The freehub engages quickly every 10 degrees for 36 points of engagement so getting back on the gas occurs with very little lag. The hubs accommodate center lock disc rotor mounting which we prefer over 6-bolt as it is a quicker, stiffer interface and you can always use 6-bolt rotors with adapters.

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...

Reynolds Strike Disc Carbon Wheelset - Tubeless Reynolds Strike Disc Carbon Wheelset - Tubeless
Reynolds has long been a leader in developing carbon brake tracks that actually work, but not even the impressive CTG brake track can match the reliability and modulation of the Strike Disc Brake Carbon Wheelset's titular stoppers. There are two differences between these and their 2017 rim-brake counterparts: spoke count is up and the carbon layup was tweaked. Both changes account for the different load requirements of disc brakes by increasing torsional stiffness in order to keep that modulation nice and responsive. Braking aside, though, these are 62mm carbon hoops, so their primary objective is to go. And go fast. Toward this end, the Strikes return in 2017 with Reynolds' Enhanced Swirl Lip Generator (SLG), a 0. 9mm shelf of carbon on the rims' distal face that controls the passage of air across the rim's surface. Tests at the A2 Wind Tunnel confirmed that it translates to a 12. 5 second gain over a distance of 40 kilometers--a 35% improvement that's welcome on the already-slippery Strike more than any other wheel in Reynolds' Performance line. SLG also reduces drag by 20% at a yaw angle of 10 degrees. According to Alphamantis, Inc., we spend most of our races at 10 degrees, so the Strike's Advanced SLG is most effective when we're most in need. As with the shallower Attack and Assault wheels, the Strikes return with tubeless functionality. You can still run the Strike as a traditional clincher, but the rims' redesigned shelves and lips hold a tubeless tire securely at low or high PSI. The lower rolling resistance and comfort of a tubeless ride is complemented by the Strike's wide rim. It's 17mm internally, a width Reynolds calls "modern" but we call less rolling resistance, better cornering, and a more comfortable ride. This is all due to the increased air volume afforded by 17mm vs the traditional 15mm (or smaller). While that may seem small compared to some of the arms-race rim widths we're seeing across the industry, 17mm is actually in line with ISO reco...

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'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.

Ultimately, OCP adaptability sets the Aldhu 3+ crank system apart from others on the market by tailoring the Q Ring position to suit your individual pedal stroke for increased efficiency. This modular crankset requires the separate purchase of Rotor's Aldhu 3D+ Spindle (30mm), as well as an Aldhu 3D+ Spider with a compatible 110 BCD Ring. You can also choose to purchase the spider and chainring attached as one if you prefer a seamless direct-mount option. And because it's designed with customization in mind, Rotor offers oval and round options in both crankset configurations to suit your particular needs. Rotor employs CNC-machined 7055 aluminum alloy with Trinity drilling technology to produce incredibly lightweight, ultra-stiff crank arms worthy of discerning cyclists and the pros alike. In fact, the Aldhu 3D+ name is derived from a legendary climbing stage in the French Alps that earned Rotor a 2008 victory on the world's most iconic race.

Rotor Outer Aero Q-Ring Rotor Outer Aero Q-Ring
No matter how smooth your pedal stroke, your power delivery will be peaky. The transfer of power from your legs to the circular chainring means that some parts of the pedal stroke deliver more power than others. The reason you notice Rotor Outer Aero Q-Rings popping up on so many of the top pros' bikes is that the oblong shape counters this uneven power transfer to keep things smoother at the cranks. It also means less exertion to achieve the same speed and a reduction of the 'dead spot' that you notice in each stroke.

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.

The tires to help you zip along on the tarmac and still offer heaps of traction in the dirt is Schwalbe's G-One Allround 650b Tire - Tubeless. The microdot design gives just the right amount of tread for braking, out of the saddle climbs, and cornering but it's almost as fast as a dedicated road tire when linking up the gravel network. This tire pairs the comfort of tubeless with extra flat protection so you can confidently conquer gravel, chip-seal, and even some smooth singletrack.Tubeless lets you run the G-One at lower pressures without the fear of pinch flatting and by running sealant, it heals punctures caused by sharp flints, goatheads, and even small specks of glass found in the bike lane. The healthy 40mm width allows for even lower tire pressure for an increased contact patch offering more confident grip while cornering and an overall smoother ride than narrower tires. Rolling resistance drops as well so you get more speed for fewer watts. Schwalbe's MicroSkin construction adds durability and sets up tubeless without hassle, so you can get out and enjoy your ride that much quicker.

This approach is used on the G-One Allround Tire - 27. 5in and it works very, very well. The G-One was originally designed as a gravel tire that rolled fast on pavement and still had excellent traction in gravel. Utilized on a 27+ size, the tread pattern flies over hardpack and can still handle some semi-loose and loam thanks to the increased volume.Given its size, its a light and fast tire, coming in at 750 grams, which makes it ideal for gravel and going fast in sun-baked, hard-packed terrain. Schwalbe uses its OneStar Compound for fast rolling and it's still grippy enough for excellent cornering traction. The small dot tread means low rolling resistance, and, with all of those working edges, it still holds its own under heavy braking and hard cornering. The SnakeSkin casing utilizes a more robust sidewall added protection against punctures as well as making tubeless setup easier.

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.

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.

Shimano 105 RD-5800 11-Speed Rear Derailleur Shimano 105 RD-5800 11-Speed Rear Derailleur
While Dura-Ace is known as the top-tier in the Shimano component line, Ultegra has been known as the workhorse and in some cases the more durable of the two -- it reaps the benefits of technological developments of Dura-Ace without the extra carbon bling. Now, the trickle-down is trickling even further. Shimano's new 105 RD-5800 11-Speed Rear Derailleur now benefits from much of the same top-tier engineering. The new 105 rear derailleur features the same wider pivots as last year's iteration. They are more resistant to flex and twist, which ensures faster, smoother shifting. These were borrowed from the DA group. The new 5800 was updated with a new spring mechanism and cable pitch, which increases adjustability for perfect alignment. The body of the derailleur features more metal and less carbon, which makes it slightly heavier, but the mechanics now eclipse DA from just a few years ago. The biggest difference in the new 5800 is the addition of another cog. Yes, 11-speed componentry has become affordable for the masses. The Shimano 105 RD-5800 11-Speed Rear Derailleur is available in Black in either a Long or Short cage version. The Long cage will accommodate a 32tooth rear cog, ideal for climbing and touring.

Shimano 105 ST-5800 11-Speed STI Shifters Shimano 105 ST-5800 11-Speed STI Shifters
If you've been jealous of your 11-speed-convert friends, but just haven't wanted to smash the piggy bank open to buy a new groupset, the new Shimano 105 5800 group is what you've been waiting for. 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...

Shimano's Dura-Ace 9100 C40 Carbon Road Clincher Wheelset brings an aesthetic update to pair perfectly with the new groupset and carries over the speedy stability we've come to expect from a Dura-Ace wheels. 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.

Shimano Dura-Ace 9100 C60 Carbon Road Wheelset - Clincher Shimano Dura-Ace 9100 C60 Carbon Road Wheelset - Clincher
Though clinchers have historically had a decidedly "training wheel" reputation, recent advancements in wheel materials and construction have made it so that clinchers are nearly as light as tubulars without sacrificing durability. They're also immensely more practical and cost-effective in the event of a flat. 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. Although a moderately deep rim keeps these wheels out of the featherweight division, they're competitive for their category and well suited to just about any sort of riding. At 50mm deep, the C60 hits the sweet spot to balance aerodynamics and weight, so you'll snap up to speed quickly and be able to hold it for the long haul with ease. Shimano uses a proprietary process whereby it merges the carbon portion of the wheel to the alloy composite braking surface. 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 that works on command in a variety of conditions, free from the worries and poor braking that can plague carbon braking surfaces.

Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 FD-R9150 11-Speed Front Derailleur Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 FD-R9150 11-Speed Front Derailleur
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 Dura-Ace Di2 RD-R9150 11-Speed Rear Derailleur Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 RD-R9150 11-Speed Rear Derailleur
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.

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.

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...

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.

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.

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.

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).

The R785 Di2 Hydraulic STI Lever and Disc Brake Caliper Set marks Shimano's hydraulic disc brake debut, and because the UCI has not yet approved disc brakes at the pro-level (for which its flagship Dura-Ace groupset is intended), the R785 is atop the pack. The R785s feature Shimano's IceTech technology, which results in braking power that is consistent no matter what the conditions. By placing cooling fins in the braking pads, Shimano has found a way to dissipate heat more effectively, allowing the brakes to grab faster and the pads to last longer. In addition, Shimano's disc break system was designed to work with Di2 electronic shifting. In order to hold the fluid reservoir for mineral oil, the front profile of the R785s is higher than previous Ultegra profiles. The R785s also feature reach and stroke adjustments to ensure that your hand position is ideal. Lastly, keep in mind that Shimano's ST-R785 Di2 Hydraulic STI Lever and Disc Brake Caliper Set does not include the rotors.

Shimano Ultegra 6800 Crankset Shimano Ultegra 6800 Crankset
We've all got multiple cycling lives, ranging from racing road and 'cross to riding charity sportives and all the long training miles that go into preparing for them. Few cranks can comfortably straddle every aspect of the mutable cyclist's life like Shimano's Ultegra 6800 Crankset, which brings the stiff Hollowtech II design of Dura-Ace to a price that appeals to riders outside of the peloton. The Ultegra 6800 Crankset may not be as light as the Dura-Ace model, but it still checks-in at a race-worthy 765g. While the Ultegra 6800 drivetrain's two extra speeds may be the most noticeable upgrade, in truth, the entire crankset has been redesigned to follow in its big brother's footsteps. The biggest change is the use of a four-arm, rather than the traditional five-arm, spider, which saves a claimed 26g. The new crankset design also standardizes the bolt circle diameter, so it accommodates standard or compact chainrings without having to spring for a completely new crankset. You're able to switch gearing from a 55-42t down to a 46-36t in a matter of a few minutes.

Shimano Ultegra 6800 Front Derailleur Shimano Ultegra 6800 Front Derailleur
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.

They say the third times a charm and Shimano continues to bring Di2 to the masses with the much-refined gen 3 Ultegra Di2 ST-R8050 11-Speed Shifters. Exceptional electronic shifting and powerful braking, when operating the firm's SLR calipers, is at your fingertips and the value and performance of this group are simply remarkable. Borrowing heavily from the top-tier Dura Ace levers, the R8050's are redesigned with improved ergonomics in mind. Because much less space is needed to house electronic buttons versus mechanical bits, the hoods are much more compact, lighter, and the lower profile feels great, perfect because that is where we spend most of our time while riding. Shimano even went so far as to create a new rubber compound and tread for the hoods that is designed to reduce vibration and improve grip. Gloves or no gloves, the tactile grip is amazing and our hands refused to slip even climbing out of the saddle on the hottest of rides. Befitting riders with bigger and smaller hands alike, a screw reach adjustment places the brake levers just where you need them for comfort and maximum control.The shift buttons are easy to reach both from the hoods and in the drops and, again trickled down from Dura Ace, have a more positive click and are more distinguishable between upshift and downshift than previous versions. What we love most about Di2 is that shifting feels akin to clicking a mouse, only requiring 2mm of movement. This requires much less focus and effort, especially for front shifting, so you can concentrate on riding and is much appreciated on the battlefield. Remote sprinter and climbing satellite shifters are available separately that plug into these shifters, allowing further customization.The Ultegra Di2 STI levers are compatible with Shimano E-Tube components and accessories including derailleurs, battery, junction boxes and wires.

Shimano Ultegra FC-R8000 Crankset Shimano Ultegra FC-R8000 Crankset
Shimano's Ultegra FC-R8000 Crankset represents true trickle down from Shimano's flagship Dura-Ace group not only visually, but in the technological features that make both cranksets light, stiff, and shift with precision. The new, aggressively angular lines increase stiffness, providing excellent power transfer. The chainrings and bolts were also redesigned to provide better chainstay clearance for shorter rear end bikes or road disc bikes with wider dropout spacing. 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 FD-R8000 Front Derailleur Shimano Ultegra FD-R8000 Front Derailleur
The trickle down of Dura-Ace 9100 technology to Ultegra R8000 11-speed drivetrains continues with the FD-R8000 front derailleur. Shimano redesigned it to have a lighter shift action, increased frame and tire clearance, and to work better with chain lines seen on road bikes with disc brakes and shorter chainstays. Everything we love about the Dura-Ace mechanical front derailleur has carried over to the new Ultegra version. The derailleurs longer arms, which house the cable anchor bolt and debuted on the Ultegra 6800 and Dura Ace 9000 front derailleurs, allow for a lighter shift as the anchor point gives the cable increased leverage. Word is this design was born when Shimano challenged its engineers to make a mechanical version of Ultegra and Dura-Ace that performed well enough and was still able to hold its own against its electronic siblings, particularly the front derailleurs. The design worked well, but the industry trend towards wider tires and disc brakes pushed the rear end spacing out to 135 or 142mm. Cable routing was more particular with the longer arm derailleurs. Shimano even sent a guide with each derailleur to gauge which way to run the cable to the anchor bolt, but the evolving rear hub spacing made this an untenable solution. To address this, Shimano engineered a new design that increases the clearance between the front derailleur and rear tire and increases shifting responsiveness with more flexible cable routing. The FD-R8000 also includes a cable tension setting adjustment at the derailleur for a more precise and ease setup. The more compact design doesn't come at a sacrifice of shift feel. Shimano claims that the new link construction matches the force curve of the hand more naturally to reduce effort at the end of shifting. The shift throw is reduced and the effort required to throw the chain to the big ring, even (or especially) while you're exhausted and trying to bridge up, is reduced. The FD-R8000 Front Derailleur is constructed from a ...

Shimano Ultegra RD-R8000 Rear Derailleur Shimano Ultegra RD-R8000 Rear Derailleur
Shimano has used Shadow technology for years on its mountain bike rear derailleurs. It allows for a lower profile and places the derailleur further inboard, keeping them out of harm's way and allowing a better chain path off the top jockey wheel in relation to the cassette. Shimano's R9100 group is the first time we saw this technology carried over to the road side, and we're happy to see its inclusion on the Ultegra RD-R8000 rear derailleur. The RD-8000 is the crowning jewel on the new Ultegra group, and if you are building up or updating a bike, you really can't do wrong with this group. The additional range afforded by the longer cage opens up the Ultegra group to adventure bikes and brings the precision, durability, and value to the masses. Additionally, if you just want to add a wider range to your Dura-Ace steed, adding the long cage Ultegra derailleur and cassette is all you need to spin perfect circles up long mountain passes. The shifting is impeccable, the durability is immaculate and the performance gap to Dura-Ace is about a tire width's margin in a bunch sprint. The change to an aluminum cage and some other minor hardware details are all that separate the Ultegra R8000 version from the Dura-Ace 9100 unit. Two cage lengths are available with cassette ranges from 11-30t (short) and 11-34t (long). Given a few design tweaks, the R8000 rear derailleur works best when paired with R8000 or R9100 levers, and it's a perfect addition to a full Ultegra bike or those running Dura Ace who want to run a bigger cassette. Another advantage of the Shadow design is the more linear path of the derailleur when shifting, which allowed the engineers at Shimano to create a shifter with a shorter throw resulting in more precise and quicker shifts--even with the larger cassette ranges we're beginning ride on everything from tarmac to gravel. We are happy to see Shimano continuing with a barrel adjuster at the derailleur. Road shifters don't have adjusters at the levers lik...

It's a given in other cycling disciplines and we have already started to see some big names get important race victories aboard disc brake bikes. Shimano's Ultegra SM-RT800 Disc Rotors feature Freeza technology to cope with the sustained braking and higher temps associated with road cycling. This centerlock rotor continues Shimano's trickle-down technology from Dura Ace that further advances the Ultegra range. Ice-Tech Frezza refers to the hybrid 3-layer sandwich construction of steel and aluminum. The stainless steel adds durability and consistent braking at the surface while the aluminum drops weight and helps dissipate the heat that can build up on long technical descents by up to 50-degrees Fahrenheit. When paired with Ice-Tech pads, temps that would normally be in the 400-degree range operate at a much lower 300-degree number.

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 ...

The durable Ultegra-level WH-RS500 wheelset adds to Shimano's current lineup and brings road tubeless to the masses is weighing in at just 1649 grams and built for rim brake use. First, a note on naming conventions. Though it's now got a serial model number, RS500, this wheelset is an updated version of the Ultegra hoops that Shimano partisans have been training on for years. They're lightweight, reliable, and tubeless-ready, making them an obvious choice for those spring base miles in questionable conditions. And speaking of questionable conditions, the machined brake tracks promise superior braking to carbon race hoops in all weather conditions. The 24mm deep rim profile ensures quick acceleration through low inertial mass and a comfortable, more compliant ride. At 20. 8mm external and 15mm internal width, the rims aren't quite on par with the behemoths we're seeing on gravel grinders, but the tubeless compatibility goes a long way to taking the sting out of chipseal when mounted with tubeless tires in the 25mm range.

The SRAM Force 1 HRD Brake Lever & Flat Mount Caliper sets the trend for powerful braking and precise shifting at a more affordable price point than its top-tier Red counterpart. Force 22's functionality rivals that of Red, and swaps out the full carbon levers and titanium hardware for a carbon brake lever, aluminum shift lever, and stainless steel hardware that may tack on a smidgeon of weight but also saves your bank account a bundle. Force 22 HRD boasts the versatility to manage a rapidly rising flood of disc-equipped road, gravel, cyclocross and all-road machines. While the lever hood aesthetics may not appeal to everyone, we've found the additional height to be surprisingly functional when traversing the less traveled of roads. Navigating steep descents and chattery surfaces are a breeze with that bit of extra leverage and grip, which also nearly eliminates the possibility of your hands getting thrown forward off the hoods after a shocking encounter with a pothole hiding under smooth, loose gravel. The Force 22 HRD levers incorporate the adjustability and smooth shifting functionality we've come to expect from all of SRAM's higher end offerings. A slight redesign from the original version sees a more comfortable hood-top hand positioning, which is much appreciated on long gravel epics and through particularly tricky 'cross course segments.

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. The SRAM Force hydraulic system makes a few material substitutions compared to the top-shelf Red sys..

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.

SRAM Force 22 Hydraulic Disc Brake SRAM Force 22 Hydraulic Disc Brake
When SRAM's line of hydraulic disc road brakes hit the market, they shook things up, setting the new standard for what road brakes could do. SRAM, however saw some room for improvement. The brakes were torn all the way down, picked apart, and completely reconfigured for huge improvements in stopping power and reliability. SRAM started with the lever body, which houses the reservoir and master cylinder. It was redesigned for more internal spacing and a boost in strength and stiffness. The resulting performance is solid and consistent, regardless of weather conditions. The master cylinder piston was redesigned as well, in order to achieve absolute reliability. It succeeded. SRAM then redesigned a new higher-capacity bladder to improve fluid flow to give your brakes the ideal feel, whether you're riding them on day 1 or day 1001. The caliper spring was also redesigned for increased pad contact and smoother retraction. Finally, the shift paddles were trimmed to reduce weight and increase comfort.

All the best things, from Tufnel's amp to SRAM's Force 22 groupset, are designed to max out at 11. 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. As far as materials are concerned, the Force 22 is made from a combination of rugged aluminum, carbon fiber, and magnesium for the ultimate combination of stiffness, lightness, and durability.

SRAM Red eTap Shifter SRAM Red eTap Shifter
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.

Although 12-speed cassettes have the mountain bike world abuzz, road looks to be firmly in 11-speed land for the foreseeable future, and no derailleur in SRAM's line gets through that gear range better than the Red Rear Derailleur. Billed as 'True 22', the pairing of Red's front and rear derailleurs allows you to utilize every one of these gears, in any combination, without adding any weight to the already outstanding Red drivetrain system. The Red Rear Derailleur stands in as an integral component of the Red groupset, calibrated for 11 speeds using the innovative technologies that have made SRAM Red an industry leader when it comes to exact, predictable shifting under the world's most demanding riding conditions. When SRAM first introduced its 10-speed Red component group, the heart of the industry-shaking design was its 1:1 Exact Actuation technology. 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 near-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.

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.

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.

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 .

SRAM Rival 22 ZeroLoss 11-speed Shifters SRAM Rival 22 ZeroLoss 11-speed Shifters
Ideally, shifting is one of those things you hardly even notice, but experience tells us all that isn't always the case. Things get out of whack, drivetrains get worn, and all of a sudden it's a battle to get into the right gear, generally when your need to shift is most pressing. SRAM's ZeroLoss technology provides instant reaction from your shifters and cables, so there's no lag time between pulling a lever and changing gears, and it automatically adjusts trim to ensure smooth, quiet drivetrains that feel just about perfect. DoubleTap shifting, cribbed from SRAM's top-shelf Red groupset, makes for short, quick shifts, and SRAM's reach adjust design lets you move the levers closer to or farther from the bars to suit your hand size. The aluminum levers are light and tough, and SRAM designed them with two different cable routing options, so you can run cables along the inside or outside of your bars for a streamlined look and killer efficiency.

This version of the SRM Power Meter features a larger diameter than Shimano's 7900 version. This adequately accommodates the larger FC-9000 crankset. In addition to allowing the crankset to fit properly, the new platform also provides more accurate measurement of the offset forces and torque patterns for your left versus right leg, which means more accurate overall power measurements. The wider diameter holds two batteries, which equates to almost 3,000 hours of use before needing to be recharged. SRM uses its tried and true eight strain gauges for measuring data. The 9000 Power Meter features an accuracy of +/- 2. 0% between 30 and 255 rpm, with a wattage range between 0 and 4096 watts, for that wild finishing sprint. The FC-9000 crank is the same Dura-Ace crank being touted for its versatility. You're able to run compact or standard rings on the same spider. Thanks in part to the four arm design, it is also lighter than, but just as stiff as, its predecessor. It uses Shimano's Hollowtech II and Hollowglide technology to create a stiff yet lightweight design with an unrivaled weight-to-stiffness ratio.

The Stan's NoTubes Grail S1 Wheel delivers dependable strength at an affordable price, so you can explore rutted forest service roads and jarring stretches of gravel across the countryside--all while leaving precious loot for future upgrades to your gravel bike. Here at the Competitive offices, we appreciate Stan's gimmick-free approach to creating dependable wheels that support tubeless tires at lower pressures, so you can reap the benefits of greater traction and bump compliance, especially in the realms of gravel riding and cyclocross racing. Part of Stan's S1 collection of affordably priced wheels, the Grail S1 is a palatable option for the gravel rider and cyclocross racer on a budget seeking increased support for running wider tubeless tires. However, you'll find the caveat comes with a weight penalty of approximately 150 grams over the Grail Comp Wheelset, which sits one rung above the budget-focused Grail S1. 6061 aluminum construction maximizes strength when you're rallying over the rough stuff without weighing you down excessively, which is nice when you're linking back roads over long distances on your next adventure. Stan's BST-R rim design is more versatile than their standard BST design used on mountain bike rims, allowing you to run wider tubeless tires at lower pressures while gravel grinding or ride with traditional road tires at higher pressures on the asphalt. Another nice feature at this price, Stan's Neo hubs provide relatively quick 10-degree engagement with their 4-pawl driver.

The Grail Team Disc Wheelset from Stan's NoTubes doesn't care if your slogging miles on the pavement, adventuring on seldom-used gravel roads, or hopping barriers on the CX course. It can handle all of those disciplines in spade along with the various tires and pressures that accompany the different requirements. Stan's renowned tubeless reliability adds confidence and performance that will enhance any ride.Stan's signature tubeless technology, BST, is utilized on its mountain bike wheels and on this Grail wheelset, this design is tweaked slightly. These wheels have a BST-R rim profile, optimizing the interface with tires ranging from 25mm to 40mm wide. The BST-R shape is designed to specifically handle narrower tires and higher tire pressures than what a standard BST rim will see. BST-R rims feature low profile sidewalls that provide a better interface for a tubeless tire bead. When setting up as such, BST provides an exceptional seal and allows the tire to balloon up with a greater volume of air than standard rims that place the bead 2-4mm below the rim's edge. This results in a tire that can achieve its truer shape for a larger and more stable rolling profile than if the same tire were mounted on a non-BST rim.BST also lets you safely run up to 30% less air pressure versus a standard clincher wheel setup resulting in more stability, better handling, more confident cornering, and less rolling resistance. If you need to channel your inner curmudgeon or if you manage to flat on your ride, Stan's rims are fully compatible with standard tubes, and the lower sidewall helps reduce the likelihood that a hard strike results in the rim pinching the tube. We can't think of anyone who doesn't appreciate flat reductions that come without any tradeoff.That excellent Grail Team Disc BST-R rim is laced to the race-proven Neo hub set featuring silky smooth-spinning bearings that roll on a stiff, strong, and precisely ground axle.

Crafted form a strong, yet lightweight 6061 aluminum alloy, this affordable, race-ready, and bombproof set of wheels rolls fast and takes on the rough and rowdy terrain ahead with a smile. Of course, this wheel uses Stan's trademark Bead Socket Technology (BST), which features low profile sidewalls to provide a better seat for the tire bead and allow for a ton of benefits compared to standard rims with higher sidewalls. When setup as tubeless, BST offers an incredible seal while allowing the tire to hold a greater volume of air than standard rims that place the bead 2-4mm below the edge. This allows the tire to maintain its full shape for a wider, more stable rolling platform than if the same tire were mounted on a standard rim. BST enables you to run up to 30% lower air pressure than on a standard clincher wheel for more stability, better handling, solid cornering, and better overall control. The lower sidewall substantially minimizes pinch flat risk by reducing the amount of material present for the tube to pinch against. And this translates to less time running to the pit with a flat and more time fighting for position out on the course. Then, faster engaging, CNC-machined Neo hubs with Durasync provide you with instantaneous response for getting up and over just about anything in your way.

Go tubeless on your cyclocross bike with the Stan's NoTubes Iron Cross Pro Disc Wheelset and never look back...except to see how far you are gapping the competition. 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 ..

Syncros RR1.0 Carbon Aerobar/Stem 400 Syncros RR1.0 Carbon Aerobar/Stem 400
Syncros shows an appreciation for clean lines and sleek shapes within its enviable RR1. 0 line. Molded with high-modulus carbon fiber, the RR1. 0 Carbon Aero Bar/Stem 400 comes with a vibration-dampening disposition and stiff, responsive steering and handling. Though it's meant for racing, the bar's flat tops also make for a larger platform for resting palms while sitting up on training rides. This incurs a slight weight gain compared to the RR1. 0's more traditionally shaped sibling, but we think the added comfort on long climbs is worth it. The RR1. 0 line's drops adopt a largely traditional round shape, but Syncros does add a slight ergo bend to combat fatigue and allow for a solid grip on the bars when tucking into an aerodynamic position, without taking away from the RR1. 0's clean aesthetic. The 80mm reach and 130mm drop push this bar to the shorter, shallower end of the traditional spectrum without taking away from its versatility.

With its integrated stem and drop bar design, Syncros' RR1. 0 Carbon Aero Bar/Stem 420 is the ideal platform for a clean, clutter-free cockpit. Syncros' use of unidirectional carbon in the bar's construction stiffens the RR1. 0 without adding additional weight, creating more uniform strength throughout and less likelihood of stress points. The RR1. 0's carbon construction also dampens road vibrations, working with the flat tops to combat fatigue in the hands and arms over time as you grip the bars. The entire RR1. 0 line takes most of its inspiration from traditional drop bars, but Syncros takes comfort into concern and does add a slight ergo shape to the ends. This works to reduce fatigue and create a more stable platform in the drops than a completely rounded shape, especially while tucking into an aerodynamic position in a race. The 80mm reach and 130mm drop keep the bar/stem combination as a versatile option, and with a claimed weight of just 400g, it's a worthy capstone to finish any race setup.

The lighter version of Syncros' classic RR1. 0, the RR1. 0 SL comes molded from a higher modulus carbon fiber, which allows Syncros create a lighter, thinner bar without a sacrifice in strength and rigidity on the roads. While the RR1. 0 SL's lower weight suits it well to being used as a race bar, Syncros' carefully engineered layup absorbs road vibrations to take away the stiff, harsh feel that plagues some carbon bars. 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.

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.

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.

The FLX is one of its minimally padded saddles. 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. This does two things. First, it gives you pressure relief for soft tissue zones along the entire length of the saddle. Second, it provides two very distinct perches for your sit bones so that you won't slide around trying to locate the perfect position.

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 Control G Plus Tire - Clincher Vittoria Corsa Control G Plus Tire - Clincher
Built with a durable, open tubular casing, the Vittoria Corsa Control G Plus Tire - Clincher has an excellent foundation to tackle the greasy cobbles so often found on the spring classics, and features its revolutionary graphene technology at the tread for an impressive mix of low rolling resistance, durability, and all-weather grip. The Corsa Control G Plus and all of Vittoria's graphene-infused tires are the culmination of a collaboration between Vittoria and an external company, Directa Plus, to adopt a carbon compound known as graphene for use in bike tires. The resulting compound, known as, G Isotech, promises less rolling resistance, increased grip, along with the durability and wear resistance that makes Vittoria a favorite in the pro peloton. By adding graphene to the compound's mix, it gives the racer or any cyclist that values performance, enhanced traction, increased durability, and reduces rolling resistance. It provides the most impressive strength-to-weight ratio we've seen from the brand and it's no surprise that this tire gets called upon when the parcours is challenging and the pace will certainly be A bloc from the gun. The Corsa Control is especially suited to the harsh conditions typical of a spring classic, and the Isotech compound is appreciated as the tire can roll fast in both dry and wet conditions while offering confident cornering and handling while you're duking it out on the Tuesday Night World Championships in variable conditions on local rolling country roads. We can appreciate that a fast tire doesn't mean squat if it punctures easily, so it's refreshing to know that the inclusion of graphene creates an incredibly durable tire and, along with the Corespun K casing that's reinforced for increased sidewall protection, this tire won't cut your race or ride short. The handmade casing is the result of cotton fibers twisted together to create one yarn, and the high-TPI casing is significantly ...

Vittoria Corsa Control G Plus Tire - Tubular Vittoria Corsa Control G Plus Tire - Tubular
Those that have been following professional cycling for a while will be quite familiar with the trademark green striped Vittoria Pave tubulars called upon by professional teams to conquer the harshest roads, we use that term lightly, and conditions encountered during the northern spring classics. Tubular tires enjoy a great lore in cycling where gluing techniques, tire pressures, and even aging them in a cellar like a fine wine to harden up the rubber for the punishing stones are generally heavily guarded secrets tucked away in the annals of a mechanic's notebook somewhere in the service course. Perhaps no other road race's result is dictated by luck quite like Paris-Roubaix. This is the race that little boys dream of winning and when they become men, hardened by the training in absolutely horrible conditions over shit covered roads and the rigors of racing in the professional peloton, its mandatory that they have the right material if they want to raise the coveted cobblestone trophy above their head at the end of the day. So understandably we were a little bit miffed and saddened when we noticed a disappearance of the much-lauded Pave tubs and knew Vittoria must have something up its sleeves. After all, it had poured a lot of development and effort into its Graphene technology so surely a worthy successor was on the way. We're happy to announce that yes, it's here, the Corsa Control G Plus Tire in Tubular is the tire for when the hard men and women come out to play, and any dye in the wool classics fanatic should be hoarding these tubulars so you can enjoy a pro-level ride quality and durability on your own heroic rides.It was maybe around 2015 when we noticed an absence of the tell-tale green Pave tires.

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.

With the current deluge of carbon wheel options peppering the market, choosing a wheelset can feel like a random exercise in minutia and branding aesthetics. 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.

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 constructed the Senso T All Weather with its proven TriComp rubber compound.

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.

Wilier Alabarda Handlebar/Stem Wilier Alabarda Handlebar/Stem
Wilier has a long and storied history in bike racing. In its 110-year history, the brand has seen a huge evolution in the racing bicycle and has been instrumental with its own contributions. In those years, materials, geometry, and other technologies have advanced making bikes faster, safer, and more comfortable. Most manufacturers offer road framesets with a fork included, and in the case of a proprietary seattube, a seatpost as well. When Wilier released the Cento10 Air, the bike had an emphasis on aerodynamics and it knew that the front end of the bicycle was perhaps the most important area that needed to be considered and it didn't want to leave anything to chance. So it created the super slippery Alabarda Handlebar/Stem that's not only drop-dead gorgeous, it's designed to get the most out of the bike. Now available on its own, the Alabarda is poised to guide you through dicey sprints and eye-watering descents in complete comfort and control.The Alabarda is a one-piece, integrated handlebar and stem. It also eliminates the need to clamp a stem to a bar so there isn't the fear of slipping or over torquing. This design lets Wilier continuously wrap carbon fiber through the one-piece junction, increasing structural integrity and stiffness that will surely get noticed on punchy out of the saddle climbs. We love the sporty front end of Wilier bikes and we're certain that the Alabarda is a contributing factor. The other bonus with removing the clamping area is it creates a lightweight cockpit and the continuous, uninterrupted layup is better able to dampen vibrations over rough roads.The combination also allows Willier to shape the bar to NACA algorithms for the best aerodynamics. With a frame as aero as the Cento10 Air, it would be doing a great disservice to muddy up the front end with a round bar and conventional stem. You'll be glad aerodynamics are on your side as you desperately claw your way up the 150m gap to the day's successful breakaway. The bar's dime...

Wilier Barra Handlebar Wilier Barra Handlebar
Designed to pair with its Stemma stem and certain Wilier frames, the Barra Handlebar offers excellent aerodynamics with a slippery, wind-cheating top section, saving precious watts and the ability to run the housing internal further reducing drag and cleaning up the looks on the front of your ride. Constructed from carbon fiber, it offers the stiffness needed during quick sprints, out-of-the-saddle climbing, and steep sinuous descents. While that stiffness is appreciated during hard efforts, the bar still has the ability to quell road noise keeping you feeling fresher for longer. The bar is unique and in a "why don't more component manufacturers do this moment," you'll notice that as the bars get wider, the reach and drop increases too providing the best fit options for riders of every size. What really makes this bar unique is its special cable routing and when used in conjunction with the Stemma and an NDR or Cento10 frame, it lets you run your housing internally, cleaning up the look of your cockpit tremendously. The housing then passes through a notch in the headset bearing and into the frame. For an electronic set-up, all the wires and brake housing can run internally but with a mechanical groupset, there's not quite enough room for all the housing so you'll have to run a piece externally. You get the benefits of the Alabarda integrated bar/stem with the flexibility to choose stem lengths and bar widths and can angle the bar as necessary for your bike's geometry or personal preference.

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.

WTB Ci24 TCS DT Swiss 240s 650b Wheelset - Tubeless WTB Ci24 TCS DT Swiss 240s 650b Wheelset - Tubeless
We're all well familiar with the rim encircling WTB's tubeless Ci24 TCS DT Swiss 240s 650b Wheelset. WTB describes its preferred terrain as "menacing," and rightfully so--the things have lumbered through damn near every big-hit Mecca around the world. But this wheelset isn't built for those hits, though its intended terrain is as menacing, just not in the same way. These wheels are tailored for road+, 650b bikes, so instead of lumbering over big hits, they're built for spinning up gravel passes beneath a fully loaded bikepacking rig. They're not for carrying you to finish lines; they're for carrying you to the next camp site. Despite their different application, these rims are built just like they're enduro counterpart. They werre two years in the making, and those two years were filled with countless tests and tweaks to create a rim that's strong in all the right places. WTB utilizes its 4D Drilling technology, which angles the spokes for even alignment of the nipple and hub flange to eliminate unnecessary lateral stress. This serves to increase the wheels' longevity and ability to handle bikepacking loads. Additionally, the Ci24's ample 24mm internal rim width provides a solid platform of support for plush traction and pneumatic cushion on ungraded gravel roads. These rims incorporate WTB's Tubeless Compatible System (TCS) profile and pair with TCS or UST tires for easy, reliable seating and excellent flat protection. Preventing flats while you're two days into the backcountry is a decidedly good thing. The rims are also compatible with tubes if your sealant can't fill the puncture hole. The rims are laced to DT Swiss' venerable 240s hubs, whose star ratchet design has become an oft-copied staple across the industry for a good reason. And that reason extends beyond the freehub's signature hum. It's a reliable, low-maintenance design that doesn't need to be babysat in order to guarantee its fast engagement and durability.

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. In less scientific terms, these wheels perform best in the windy conditions you'll actually encounter on the roads, not on paper.At the center, Zipp uses its updated 77/177 hub set, which has improved stiffness and durability over its predecessor.

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. In non-tech terms, this means these wheels should outperform the competition in the conditions you'll actually encounter ...

Zipp 202 NSW Carbon Disc Brake Road Wheelset - Tubeless Zipp 202 NSW Carbon Disc Brake Road Wheelset - Tubeless
It used to seem that making a wheel for only one purpose was both acceptable and respectable. Climbing wheels had only one job -- to minimize spokes, shallow out rims, and pump up your tire pressure beyond sane numbers, so you could muster your way up HC-grade climbs. However, today, in a world of gear ratios that play kindly to knees and climbs, riders are asking for less drag, more aero, and furthermore -- wheels that transfer to smooth descents that don't leave our life flashing before our eyes as we rely on brake pads pressing against carbon through sharp corners on windy canyon descents. Zipp's tubeless 202 NSW Carbon Disc Brake Wheelset addresses both concerns by incorporating the aerodynamic features the brand built an empire on and adding the confident modulation of disc brakes. The better grip and more efficient rolling of tubeless tires also helps for climbing and descending, and the new freehub engages more quickly and freewheels with less drag. Better up, better down, better all the way around. We'll get to all of that tech below, but it's always appropriate to start with aerodynamics (or "speed weaponry") when discussing Zipp, and the 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 claims that SawTooth reduces side wind forces by "reducing the laminar bubble effect on the aerodynamically shielded side of the rim's profile." Translated into less technical terms, that means the rim's dimpling is designed to dispel the negative, drag-inducing force on the rim's non-wind side. SawTooth's premise stems from 42 computational fluid dynamics studies and testing that spilled out of the wind tunnel onto--gasp!--actual roads. In actual wind. You know, the conditions that we actual cyclists face every time .

The old rules of wheel design no longer apply. Drag matters, even while grinding up HC-grade climbs in today's climb- and knee-friendly gear ratios.

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.

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.

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.

And then keep going when the distance gone extends beyond paved roads and onto gravel, graded dirt, and even singletrack.

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. We're not sure how the huge rim and tire affects those claims, but surely aerodynamic gains are aerodynamic gains, regardless of a little extra girth. Focusing on aerodynamics with this wheelset feels a bit, well, sheepish, because the wheel really shines when you're pedaling up mountain paths used by actual bighorn sheep or across soft, pine-needle-carpeted forest beds. 650b donuts represent the plushest, grippiest ride you can get on a road bike. Though they were largely just tradeshow novelty acts when Zipp committed to the platform, road-plus bikes are becoming more and more common as bikepackers hit the ceiling of tire width allowed by 700c framesets. Unconstrained tire sizes means unconstrained adventures across terrain that occasionally features no trail at all. Each wheel ships with standard quick-release skewers, 12x100mm and 15x100mm thru-axle adapters for the front, and 12x142mm drop-out adapters for the rear.

Though they were largely just tradeshow novelty acts when Zipp committed to the platform, road-plus bikes are becoming more and more common as bikepackers hit the ceiling of tire width allowed by 700c framesets. Unconstrained tire sizes means unconstrained adventures across terrain that occasionally features no trail at all. Each wh...

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...

Zipp 303 Firecrest Carbon Clincher Road Wheel Zipp 303 Firecrest Carbon Clincher Road Wheel
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.

Zipp 303 Firecrest Carbon Clincher Road Wheelset Zipp 303 Firecrest Carbon Clincher Road Wheelset
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. Featuring a new platform and graphics for 2016, these hubs boast increased bearing protection 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 cassette range of up to SRAM's 10-42t if needed. The driver bodies can be swapped out without having to re-dish the wheel, and each wheel includes Zipp's new quick-release skewer with a w...

Zipp 303 Firecrest Carbon Disc Brake Road Wheel - Tubeless Zipp 303 Firecrest Carbon Disc Brake Road Wheel - Tubeless
When describing its tubeless-ready 303 Firecrest Carbon Disc Brake Road Wheel, Zipp rather drily notes that, when you're challenging the ever-expanding terrain available courtesy of the new generation of gravel grinders, the wheel will "go the distance. 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 Firecrest Carbon Road Wheel - Tubular Zipp 303 Firecrest Carbon Road Wheel - Tubular
The dimpling of Advanced Boundary Layer Control (ABLC) that Zipp built its name on returns with the 303 Firecrest Carbon Tubular Road Wheel at a higher count and with a redesigned dispersion pattern. Along with the rims' signature bulge, ABLC also helps improve stability at common cycling yaw angles by directing side forces more toward the steering axis. We definitely appreciate ABLC -- if for no other reason than that it's become a staple in the peloton, winning races under names ranging from Cancellara to Armistead -- but we're actually a bit more juiced about the Visco-Elastic Constrained Layer Control (VCLC) and Carbon Bridge technologies that Zipp is rolling out. 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. It involves, to deconstruct Zipp's initialism, constraining a visco-elastic layer between the wheels' carbon fiber 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, and Zipp claims that the 303's durability under duress jumps by almost 40%. Zipp even goes so far as to make the joke that the wheels are practically bulletproof. The rims are anchored by Zipp's updated 77 and 177 hubs in the front and back, respectively. The new hub model features a flange and spoke lace design meant to decrease the torsional twist a wheel can experience under hard accelerations and the lateral flex produced by long periods of steady, uphill grinding. Zipp also claims that the new hub improves bearing life.

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.

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'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.

We all remember when carbon fiber was regarded as the Faberge egg of the northern classics. That all changed in 2010, and Spartacus swept the cobbled monuments on the best form we've ever seen in spring and a pair of 303s. Since then, it's been all carbon, all the time, and with the tubeless 303 NSW Carbon Disc Brake Road Wheel, Zipp's made the 303 line even more capable of tackling Cancellara's preferred race terrain. Cobblestones, limestone gravel, and the occasional patch of tarmac--all comers are welcome. 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 going to start here with 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.

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.

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.

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.

Zipp 404 Firecrest Carbon Disc Brake Road Wheel - Tubeless Zipp 404 Firecrest Carbon Disc Brake Road Wheel - Tubeless
Since its rim is 58mm deep, it's easy to assume that Zipp's tubeless 404 Firecrest Carbon Disc Brake Road Wheel has a one track mind: aerodynamics, all the time, and nothing more. Zipp's history also supports that assumption. But now that its equipped with disc brakes and a tubeless-ready bead, the focus shifts slightly. The wheels stop better than ever, and the lower PSI of tubeless means they roll more efficiently, more comfortably, and with less risk of punctures. Of course, the wheels are still aero-first (hence the insistence on "slightly" above), and ditching the rim brake track means that the aerodynamic benefits of Zipp's Aerodynamic Boundary Layer Control (ABLC) dimpling can extend all the way to the edge of the rim. While we can't guarantee anything, extending ABLC might logically be credited with reducing the additional drag caused by disc brakes--though, to be fair, we've seen estimates that it's as low as under 1g of additional drag, so the point may be moot. Regardless of how far they extend, the ABLC dimples remain the foundation of the Zipp empire. The brand credits them with 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. In non-tech terms, this means these wheels should outperform the competition in the conditions you'll actually encounter on the road. 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, r...

While the Zipp 404 has long held its own as a versatile and aerodynamic road wheel, its strangle hold on the high-end, hyper-competitve cyclocross market has been broken as rim brakes have quickly gone the way of the Dodo in nearly all off-road inclinations. Not to be de-throned so easily, Zipp brings the venerable 404 platform into the modern cycling age with the 404 Firecrest Carbon Disc Brake Road Tubular Wheel, looking to take back its place at the pointy end of the now disc-equipped pack. While Zipp built these wheels to be exceptionally versatile, let's not forget about the aerodynamics. A 58mm deep rim features Zipp's signature Aerodynamic Boundary Layer Control (ABLC) dimpling, which uses strategically placed and sized dimples across the rim surface to smooth airflow and reduce drag. This in turn allows the wheel to slice through the air like an arrow zooming towards its target. The big news with ABLC is that it boasts aerodynamic advantages at real-world yaw angles of ten to twenty degrees, compared to many wheels out there that feature minimum drag numbers at yaw angles of five to ten degrees that rarely occur outside of a wind tunnel. In non-techy talk, that means these wheels outperform the competition in the windy conditions you'll encounter in the saddle. At the center, Zipp uses its 77 disc hub on the front and its 177 disc hub on the rear for a smooth ride every time you clip in. These hubs boast increased bearing protection over their predecessors and are ready to roll without any pre-load adjustment. The rear hub is compatible with a separately sold XD driver body, allowing options for a wider cassette range up to a 10-42 if needed. As an added bonus, driver bodies can be swapped out without having to re-dish the wheel to get it back up and running. Each wheel includes an updated quick-release skewer with a widened handle that increases leverage for setting the wheel and sits close to the frame when closed for cleaner lines. Each Zipp 404 Fi...

Bikes have evolved, and wheels needed to accommodate the evolution as well which is how we've arrived at the tubeless 404 Firecrest Carbon Disc Brake Road Wheelset.

These new disc brake 404's stop on a dime and the ability to run lower tire pressure without the fear of a pinch flat, they'll roll faster, more comfortably, and are less likely to puncture.Of course, the wheels are still aero-first (hence the insistence on "slightly" above), and ditching the rim brake track means that the aerodynamic benefits of Zipp's Aerodynamic Boundary Layer Control (ABLC) dimpling can extend all the way to the edge of the rim. While we can't guarantee anything, extending ABLC might logically be credited with reducing the additional drag caused by disc brakes--though, to be fair, we've seen estimates that it's as low as under 1g of additional drag, so the point may be moot. Regardless of how far they extend, the ABLC dimples remain the foundation of the Zipp empire. The brand credits them with 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. In non-tech terms, this means these wheels should outperform the competition in the conditions you'll actually encounter on the road.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...
