It's lighter, the tires are nicer, you flat less. There's a reason why pros trust tubular tires for all their races. Sure you have to glue on a tire, but if you are looking for the advantage of an unltra light weight set of wheels, go with the advantage of a tubular tire. Whether it's a mountain top finish, Paris Roubaix, or a cross race, the people on the top step are doing it on tubular tires.
STOP WITH CONFIDENCE...QUICKLY
Braking is not that important. . . until it is! The cross field looks a lot different than just a few years ago. Riders quickly realized that with the hard stopping demands needed (often times in less than ideal weather), that disc brakes offer a distinct advantage. In less than a few years, the vast majority of cross racers have made the switch to disc brakes.
It's not just in the cross field where disc brakes make an improvement. With the 28mm tubulars being such a lightweight set of wheels, people are wanting to use them in the mountains. More and more road bikes are coming with disc brakes. With these wheels, you can fly up the mountains, and use the disc brakes on the way down to confidently stop in any terrain or weather condition.
Whether you are running Quick Release (skewer) or a thru axle, we have got you covered. Have multiple bikes? Quickly swap over between the two options and use the wheel set on both bikes. You can easily swap both the front and rear hubs to use either system. The front hub can swap between standard QR (100mm OLD) and 15mm thru axle (100mm OLD). The rear can be used with either a 135mm Quick Release, a 135mm X 12mm thru axle, or a 142mm X 12mm thru axle.
SPOKES & NIPPLES
We feature Sapim CX Ray spokes and Sapim alloy nipples on all 28mm carbon. Both front and rear wheels are laced 2X on both sides for a stronger build and much better transfer of torque. All spokes and nipples are black.
The 28mm tubular with disc brake hubs is built up with a 24/28 spoke count option for added strength due to the forces from the disc brakes.
