PRO’S FASTEST TRI-SPOKE WHEEL NOW AVAILABLE AS A CLINCHER Joining the tri-spoke tubular and rear disc clincher wheels in its line-up, PRO now releases its Tri-spoke Clincher front wheel designed for triathletes and time trialists. Whilst tubular wheels are the racing choice of the pro’s, it’s not possible to quickly repair a punctured tubular. Riders who puncture on a tubular during a race will usually take a spare wheel from their team car or neutral support service. For riders who don’t have this luxury, the new PRO tri-spoke clincher wheel offers high speed aerodynamics with the practicality of being able to quickly repair punctures on the roadside. Tech features The Tri-spoke Clincher uses the same technology trickled down from the Tubular version, with the same aerodynamic shape as the Tri-spoke Textreme wheel with a 3K 2x2 twill carbon weave and a wide 65mm deep rim design for optimum aerodynamics, suitable for 25mm clincher tires. The Tri-spoke Clincher is built around an Ultegra 6800 hub, weighing 1040g in total and comes with a protective PRO wheel bag. The PRO Tri-spoke Tubular wheel is regarded as one of the fastest on the planet, being ridden to victory in multiple World Tour time trials by the likes of Chris Froome and Geraint Thomas of Team Sky, Richie Porte and Rohan Dennis of BMC, Primoz Roglic of LottoNL-Jumbo and Tom Dumoulin of Team Sunweb. Together with the current PRO Rear Disc Clincher, the new PRO Tri-spoke Clincher wheel completes the full aerodynamic set up for triathletes and testers looking for the elite wheel technology that has helped many world-class athletes achieve the highest-level victories. The PRO Tri-spoke wheel will be available from January 2018.
As a matter of intrest, would a new bike priced at $5k with only a 2 yr frame and parts policy deter you from purchasing said bike. The bike if purchased will be from a Oz based small company. Their products look nice, but I think I have issues with the warranty. ie.. I note Cervelo and others have life time frame warranties for original owner ect. cheers
Gurus I have noted the great prices that a Cervelo P3 or P4 could be presently picked up for with Dura-ace running gear and rotor cranks,,, "really the only thing to add would be your race wheels". (I am not looking at the Team P4 at 13k) Not being a cevelo user, would your average "have fun' AG'er who does a couple of HIM, Gundy HOW, OD racers during the year, note any real difference between the P4 over the P3. I noted that the gap in pricing between the two is pretty close to 2k, from what I have seen on the net in Oz. And in giving advise to members of our club, about TT bike packages the Cervelo's looks pretty good??? or is it.?? I know the Shiv is great but at the current price, it is out of range of our club.. cheers
