Campagnolo  Bora Ultra 35 Clincher Wheelset 2018 - Campagnolo - Bright Label

The Campagnolo Bora Ultra 35's are the wheelset of choice for Grand Tour winners, such as Nairo Quintana, when the road points skyward. Weighing just 1360 grams, it's clear why. This wheelset was designed for climbing quickly. However, thanks to the 35mm deep carbon rim, the Campagnolo Bora Ultra 35 also offers aero advantages for flatter terrain. So, even if the course levels out, you're still equipped to handle yourself amongst the best sprinters. Due to the new slightly larger, 24.2mm outer rim width, this wheelset also accommodates much wider tyres than the previous model - allowing you to improve comfort, control and grip. In this clincher-compatible iteration, this wheelset also offers an exceptional level of serviceability too. In the past, carbon rims have had a terrible reputation for braking, especially in wet weather. However, with the development of AC3 (All Conditions Carbon Control) technology, Campagnolo has changed that. By applying AC3 technology to the braking track, these wheels offer up to 40% better braking performance in the wet, and 20% better braking performance in the dry. Now, no matter the weather conditions, you can ride a pair of top quality carbon wheels with the full confidence that you can stop when it matters. Campagnolo Bora Ultra 35 wheels are built with a set of oversized, high flanged carbon-fibre hubs to reduce weight and improve stiffness. The hubs are filled with Campagnolo's proprietary CULT ceramic bearings, increasing efficiency and helping the hubs spin smoother, for longer. Using 18 bladed stainless-steel aero spokes in the front, and 21 in the rear, these hubs are laced and balanced to the carbon rim using Campagnolo's distinctive G3 spoke pattern, by a Campagnolo qualified technician. These design and manufacturing techniques create a wheelset that is incredibly torsionally stiff and efficient, ensuring maximum speed and lasting race-winning performance.
