Lightweight AUTOBAHN Rear Disc Wheel - Rim Brake
An ideal carbon wheel for triathlon should be light, stable and aerodynamic. The less weight a triathlete has to move when cycling, the more energy-saving he or she can realise. Disc wheels are unbeatable in terms of aerodynamics. Numerous studies prove that disc wheels have the lowest air resistance when the wind blows from the front. There is no air turbulence whatsoever due to spokes and a maximum possible sailing effect when the wind blows from the side is made possible by the construction of the disc.
However, a disc wheel (Disc) offers the full contact surface for wind, due to its design. Therefore, the front wheel and its rim height is of decisive importance in terms of the controllability of the racing bike. When it comes to comfort, you have to make concessions with a carbon disc wheel. Due to its design, the disc wheel cannot compete with an aero wheel with spokes. The enormous stiffness for more propulsion is at the expense of comfort.
Top wheel in the combination between aerodynamics, stiffness, handling and weight Particularly light, stiff and ideally suited for hilly track profiles Best suited for triathlon and time trial
