what is it?
NEW in 2022!
Not long ago disc brake bikes were relegated to the endurance and recreation crowd. They were looked as a way to run larger tires, with slacker geometry. . .perfect for the all-day cyclist who was in no particular hurry. Then, racers started getting ahold of disc brakes and realized the benefits of better braking and larger tires. A hot debate ensued and continues to this day. Even the UCI (governing body of bike racing) got involved which never makes anything easy. However, the technology has won and today you see disc brakes used on race bikes for all racing conditions.
The last hold out was the aero purist crowd. However, with the ability to run hidden cables and with no fork mounted brake caliper available, disc brake bikes soon surpassed rim brake bikes in terms of aero drag. This led the way for the newest crop of time trial and triathlon disc brake bikes which have leapt in popularity.
The TT Carbon Disc wheel is born from that desire to pair an incredibly aero wheelset to that newly designed aero bike. If you are looking to be as aero as possible for those efforts against the clock, this is the best way to propel yourself forward.
We have seen it at every triathlon or time trial. Valve hole stickers! Whether it’s a piece of cut vinyl, or an OBX sticker leftover from your vacation, they never look right on a high end wheel. There are even companies dedicated to making nicer looking stickers to fit over the valve hole. However, with the new disc wheels we have a dedicated carbon fiber valve hole cover that tightens into place using an allen wrench.
Why do I need it?
Pure speed events where every second matters. We have all been in that situation where you have raced your hardest only to have been beaten by somebody by a couple seconds. What could you have done differently?
Arm yourself with the most aero wheel option ever and never wonder “What could I have done?” again.
Time trials, triathlons, flat and fast road races. Places where you can put your head down, hammer on the pedals, and go for it!
"Whoosh whoosh whoosh" is the only way to describe the sound of riding with a disc wheel. Hear that road and the wind flying past the wheel as you ride faster than you ever thought you could.
Let your wheels say something without being too loud. The sleek and cool black label is an understated and stealthy look. Want to spice things up a bit? Choose a decal color option and show your speed off.
