Campagnolo  Bora One 50 Tubular Wheelset 2018 - Shimano/SRAM - Dark Label

With the same race-ready design and technology as top-of-the-range professional-level wheels, the Campagnolo Bora One 50's are a lightweight, aero wheelset that offers the same performance as some carbon wheelsets twice the price. In this tubular version, they even offer a similar ride quality to a professional-level setup. The 50mm deep carbon rim means that these wheels maximise aerodynamics, making them perfect for flat and rolling courses. Thankfully, however, aerodynamic gains don't come at the cost of lightweight. At just 1265 grams a set, the Bora One 50's certainly won't weigh you down when the road points skyward. Due to the larger 24.2mm outer rim width, this wheelset can accommodate much larger tyres than many other race-orientated aero wheels, further ensuring that comfort and grip can be maximised. Thanks to the AC3 (All Conditions Carbon Control) constructed brake track, these wheels go a long way to fixing the reputation carbon wheels have for poor braking. When used with the proprietary brake pads provided, these wheels offer up to 40% better braking performance in wet weather and 20% better braking performance in the dry conditions. These performance rims are combined with a class-leading set of large flange alloy hubs, which are filled with USB sealed ceramic bearings to guarantee a smooth spin, maximised rider efficiency and increased power transfer. These high-quality hubs are laced to the carbon rim by hand with bladed alloy spokes, 18 on the front and 21 on the rear. This results in an exceptionally durable wheelset - perfect for heavy riders and rougher roads.
