2008 Shimano Dura Ace carbon fiber crankset.
Several manufacturers have focused on clincher carbon wheels this year. DT Swiss is among them. A new rim made in their factory in switzerland. It weights around 300g. The complete wheelset is 1250g for 1300 euros including the Ti skewers ( price to be checked). The hubs are the 190 Ceramic.
Zipp 255: the rim replaces the 250, it is the one we presented in yesterday´s article. It is 32mm deep, it is dimpled, it features a new technology to increase the upper tube bed impact resistance of 32%. The weight is the same as the old 250. The dimples make it behave as a 50mm deep standard V shaped rim.
- Zipp 1080: the rim is 108mm deep!!! Perfect for time trial or triathlon.
Zipp new crankset.
- The new time trial wheel: it looks like a 808 rim bonded to a carbon structure. Zipp claims it has a negative drag! It´s something like it pushes you: you can earn 5 Watts at 350W. If you remember, we already shown this wheel about a year ago...
- Some new TT stuffs like bar extenders, shifters...
The Michelin Pro 3 is 200g, it is 27% more adhesive than the Pro 2 while cornering. It features a vectran puncture layer.
