The gold standard of performance aluminum racing wheels goes by the name of Shamal
The stealth version of this performance wheelset goes by the name of Shamal Mille and the sophisticated surface treatment that gives this wheelset its sleek and elegant dark look also represents a signifi cant performance advantage. This treatment permits surefooted and strong braking power, above and beyond that of normal aluminium rims, in both wet and dry conditions.
New for this year is a C17 rim that ensures a better rim/tire interface and thus improved performance espescially when using 25 and 28mm tires. The already elegant wheelset gets a facelift in the form of black anodized nipples, to complete its understated dark look 100%.
The new Shamal Mille™ is sure to turn heads of both the competition on race day as well as those next to you at the stoplight.
- Rim Type: Clincher
- Weight: 1459g
- USB Ultra Smooth Bearings - Perfectly smooth surfaces and lower friction to reduce loss of power
- G3 Geometry - improves energy transfer, reduce the stress on the spokes on the right and increase transverse rigidity.
- Momag - No nipple holes eliminate the need for rim tape and make greater rim lifetime, greater resistance to fatigue and greater stiffness
- PLASMA ELECTROLYTIC OXIDATION: it offers elegant finish and enhances braking power and modularity.
- TOROIDAL MILLING SPIRAL GROOVE ON THE BRAKING TRACK: reduces braking distance while maintaining silent braking.
- DIFFERENTIATED RIM HEIGHT FRONT (24 - 27 mm) AND REAR (27 - 30 mm)
- DYNAMIC BALANCE
- MOMAG™: allows the external profile of the rim to be free of holes.
- AERODYNAMIC SPOKES IN ALUMINUM: maximum air penetration, less weight and greater reactivity.
- DIFFERENTIATED SPOKES: 16 radial spokes for the front, 21 spokes for the rear, doubled on the right and exclusive Mega-G3™ spokes to reduce vibration, increase stiffness and transmission of power to the wheel.
- BLACK NIPPLES: black Oxidation Finishing self-locking aluminum nipples outside the rim. Allows easy maintenance and less truing over the wheel lifetime.
- SPOKES ANTI-ROTATION SYSTEM: it keeps the spokes in a position of maximum aerodynamics.
- CERAMIC USB BEARINGS WITH DIFFERENTIATED DIAMETERS: 28 mm for the front, 30 mm for the rear. Less friction, less weight, greater smoothness and the same performance over time.
- HUB BODY IN CARBON: high lateral stiffness, reducing weight to a minimum.
- AXLE IN ALUMINUM: low weight, high stiffness.
- OVERSIZED FLANGE: it increases torsional stiffness, increasing its reactivity at every change in the cyclist's pace.
