404 tubular wheelset in silver hubs and spokes 58mm deep aero rims Firecrest aero profile is more aerodynamic than other rims plus improves handling in crosswinds, wheel strength and ride quality ABLC (Advanced Boundary Layer Control) aero dimples smoothes airflow across the rim's surface VCLC? (Visco-Elastic Constrained Layer Control) - uses a vibration-absorbing material sandwiched between layers of rigid carbon laminate in the rim.
When the wheel receives an impact from the road, much of the shock is absorbed by the VCLC system, delivering a 10% reduction in vibration. Carbon Bridge uses a Kevlar® thread in a co-axial helix stitch to bind sheets of carbon to each other in our tubular rims.
Because Kevlar is 350% more impact resistant than carbon, it can disperse shock more evenly throughout the carbon laminate, making for a rim that is practically bulletproof.
In particular, Carbon Bridge reduces the vulnerability of the rim's tire bed, the area most susceptible to damage from impact
Supplied with Zipp aero quick release and valve extension
