The 46mm rim is constructed from high modulus carbon fibre with a narrow and straight-sided profile, and boasts several smart features that helps it stand out from the increasing choice in the carbon wheel market. Firstly there’s a Swirl Lip Generator, a small lip on the trailing edge of the rim to encourage airflow to fill the low-pressure area behind the rim section rather than break away into turbulent flow, with a resulting reduction in air drag.
Linking rims to hubs are Reynolds DT Swiss hubs with DT Aerolite bladed spokes, 20/24 front/rear with tangent spokes on the drive side and radial lacing elsewhere and nipples hidden inside the rims. Shimano/SRAM 11 speed freehub. Weight is 1474g.
