Lightweight FERNWEG 85 EVO Disc Brake Wheelset
A new layer structure, the integration of tubeless technology and the use of special CFRP fibers make the new generation EVO not only more stable, durable and efficient, but also more versatile. For the rider this means even more efficient power transmission, excellent handling, improved rolling characteristics, more precise and safer braking performance and, above all, more speed. Despite the enormous stiffness, the comfort factor has also been increased - making long rides even more efficient.
The time has come for the next generation - either you ride it or you are overtaken by it. When it comes to aerodynamics, wheels play a decisive role, but only at high speeds from around 40 km/h. Rim height and aerodynamics are inseparably linked. The high rim dissipates the airflow better, thus ensuring less drag and you can put more speed on the road. Additionally every racing bike with high-profile wheels looks faster and more aggressive and becomes a real eye-catcher on the road. High profile wheels are the epitome of a fast and beautiful aero or time trial bike.
A disadvantage of these wheels, however, is that the height of the rim makes them more sensitive to strong crosswinds. Furthermore, the weight often increases because the wheel has a higher rim.
The high art is to find the perfect mix and balance between handling, weight, aerodynamics and wind sensitivity. Every manufacturer finds his own way here and implements his own standards and ideas of the perfect wheel. Lightweight (set 1765 g/ FR 840 g/ RR 925 g) Usual easy handling due to folding tyres Disc brake / disc brake system 16 full carbon spokes in the front wheel and 20 full carbon spokes in the rear wheel provide even more stiffness and thus direct power transmission without energy loss Modern shape with aerodynamically optimized rim design Top wheel in the combination of aerodynamics, crosswind sensitivity Stiffness, handling and weight Ideal for training, competition, triathlon and time trial
