Combining the versatility of the Wind 40 up front and the aerodynamics of the Wind 55 at the rear, the ultimate setup is provided for Aerodynamics, versatility and handling.
The combination of attention to aerodynamics and versatility creates Wind 40 DB.
So 40 mm, a light rim, created by the superposition of wide, modern unidirectional layers, with a pronounced profile (8 mm radius): innovative shapes, designed to blend with the tyre in a single element capable of eliminating turbulence, avoiding interrupting the flow of air that meets the wheel during the race.
But 40 mm also means versatility, because it is generally one of the sizes most appreciated by those who do not want to overdo things, but want an excellent wheel uphill, stiff and snappy, precise when riding. The system is completed with aluminium hubs, designed at the CNC, which support 24 "straight pull" spokes, guaranteeing maximum overall rigidity, both in acceleration and when braking, without influences due to the asymmetric nature of the forces coming from the disc and cogset.
Wind 40 DB is certainly the multi-purpose choice, with a strong focus on aerodynamics, to be fast, very fast, uphill, fast, very fast, on the flat, and just as much so downhill.
In describing a racing bike wheel like Wind 55 DB, you start with aerodynamics: it's time to try out on your bike how a finished and optimised profile down to the finest detail is able to make the difference.The 55 mm full carbon unidirectional rim, a full 27 mm wide, is the result of an endless cycle of tests, wind tunnel analyses and laboratory finishing.
Then on the road, with the main objective of reducing the effect of side winds on the ride as much as possible.
And this is what you notice when you choose to race on Wind 55 DB: it cuts through the wind, guarantees stability and consequently very high average speeds without excess effort.
Completing this package id the 2-Way Fit™, 19-mm internal channel, designed to offer the best support for tubeless tires and designed to best match the 25 and 28 mm sizes with the wide rim profile. Thanks to the Mo-Mag™ technology, no conversion will be necessary, the wheel is ready for use even without an inner tube.
If "Aerodynamics" is the first word that comes to mind to describe your new set of wheels, perhaps you should think of Wind as the first choice.
