700C Clincher Wheelset
A bicycle wheel that is refreshingly simple in design,
yet radically different from the rest. Different is the only way to
make a wheelset so astoundingly light (1390g./pr.), yet strong enough
even for larger riders. Unique materials, featuring carbon and Kevlar
fibers, produce a singularly smooth ride. Our teams and individual athletes
report a new level of confidence and control, allowing them to ride longer
Our unique, aero-profile Carbon Core™ spokes span all the way
across the wheel, and are fully integrated into our carbon composite hub
shell. These super-strong carbon fiber and Kevlar spokes are laced to
our teardrop-shaped aluminum alloy rim, and then lovingly built into perfectly-tensioned
works of art by our masterful wheel technicians right here in Connecticut.
A responsive, snappy feel is the result of our sensible spoke count™,
featuring a featherweight 595-gram
24-spoke front wheel.
On the 30-spoke rear you'll find 50% more spokes on the drive side, adding
strength and balancing spoke tension. Our robust, welded rims insure lateral
rigidity, and long-term durability. If ever required, Topolino wheels
can be trued the same as standard wheels, and are easily serviced.
Since 2001, scores of elite-level racers and riders have put Topolinos
to the test, and come back smiling. See what some of them have to say
