Campagnolo wheels are now available to purchase from Caratrade. Caratrade have forecast a large number of wheels to meet demand and to achieve the best possible price, because of the tight margin we must insist on pre payment. Payment can be made via credit card or bank transfer.
Evolution of the Shamal Ultra in terms of aesthetics and braking performance is called Shamal Mille.The special ceramic Plasma Electrolytic oxidation give the rim an elegant fnish, as does the matte black of the hub, spokes and quick release.
But it is on the braking performance that the Campy Tech lab engineers have made yet another step forward: the refned spiral groove on the braking track allows a reduction in braking times on both wet and dry terrain and guarantees maximum silence even when braking sharply. The special ceramic treatment has been studied to work with the red Campagnolo® brake pad and gives best results when used with a Campagnolo® brake with the pad always thoroughly cleaned. The Shamal Mille wheel is entirely hand-assembled by a specialised Campagnolo® technician and is checked in every tiny detail with electronic instrumentation. This ensures maximum performance and reliability for all Campagnolo® wheels.
USB™ ULTRA SMOOTH BEARINGS:Perfectly smooth surfaces and lower friction to reduce loss of power are the most interesting features. Add on the reduced weight and resistance to corrosion and you will understand why we can give you the best thanks to USB™. All your power will be transferred onto the road. Campagnolo® has a long-standing reputation for the extremely high performance of its hubs in terms of smoothness and reliability. In fact, all the projects are entirely developed in our R&D department Campy Tech Lab™ and we have put obsessive care into taking care of every detail. The hubs with USB™ ceramic bearings (Ultra Smooth Bearings) further enhance the wheels' smoothness and reduce weight and the need for maintenance. Comparative tests have shown that USB™ bearings are 50% smoother than standard bearings. Now improving your performance during the race or simply going for a ride with your friends will be easier. USB™ - Ultra Smooth Bearings - technology is used for Record™ cranksets and for the new Shamal™ Ultra™ wheels.
ULTRA-FIT:The design we have employed for our rims using Ultra-Fit™ Tubeless technology allows the sidewalls of the tire to mate perfectly with the shoulders of the rim. In our tests Ultra-Fit™ Tubeless wheels far surpassed any other wheel fitted with a traditional tire. All energy loss is eliminated by excluding all possible movement between the rim and the tubeless tire. Tubeless tires are exceptionally smooth and have less rolling resistance than traditional clinchers. Thanks to the rim profile design, ULTRA-FIT™ allows for perfect adherence between the tubeless tire and the rim. The advantages of ULTRA-FIT™ technologies are:
G3 GEOMETRY:Campagnolo® has developed an assembly architecture which, compared with a traditional wheel, makes it possible to improve energy transfer, reduce the stress on the spokes on the right and increase transverse rigidity.This is achieved because in G3™ geometry the right-hand side of the rear wheel is fitted with twice as many spokes as the left. The results of G3™ system are truly extraordinary: better transfer of the driving torque, better lateral rigidity, reduction of the stress in the rear wheel spokes. And thanks to the G3™ system that compensates for the forces acting on the 2 sides of the wheel, there are no more wheel vibrations, even for heavier people. In the 2012 range the Shamal™ and Eurus™ wheels increase their responsiveness specifically thanks to this system. G3™ becomes Mega-G3™ thanks to the oversize flange. This solution allows the increase of the torsional stiffness values even more, to the benefit of the overall responsiveness of the wheel.
MOMAG:What is MoMag?A technology that offers several advantages to the structural integrity of the wheel as well as eliminating the need for rim tape. The name derives from "Mounting Magnet" system, shortened to MoMag™. How does it work? The nipples, once inserted inside the rim via the valve hole, are "guided" to the point of connection with the spoke by means of the magnet. This simple but ingenious system makes it possible to have a wheel without holes on the upper bridge, but with spokes tensioned by traditional nipples! Advantages No holes on the rim means that the rim is uniform at every point, free from stress points or zones of weakness and, for the clincher profiles no rim tape is required, to the benefi t of weight reduction. The advantages are immediately clear: greater rim lifetime, greater resistance to fatigue, the possibility to give the spokes greater tension, and greater stiffness which, in terms of performance, mean greater reactivity and acceleration. But that's not all. The advantages also include extremely quick and simple maintenance and spoke replacement. All to the benefi t of cyclists who choose Campagnolo®.
