The Shamal wheelset represents somewhat of a cornerstone in fine performance wheelworks and as such it has been at the forefront of innovation since its inception over 20 years ago.Born as the very first complete wheelset with each component in its build being specifically designed as a complete unit to ensure unparalleled efficiency and performance the Shamal continued to introduce new technologies that would change the way aluminum performance wheels were produced. The SHAMAL ULTRA C17 wider profile meets the C17 standard and is perfect for use with the increasingly popular tire sizes.Available in clincher version, the Shamal was studied specifically to increase compatibility with 25 and 28mm. This rim/tire interface proves to be more aerodynamic when compared to the same size tires mated to a C15 rim. The C17 also allows for a more surefooted grip on the road in addition to increased comfort while increasing rigidity and thus reactivity at the same time thanks to its wider stance and optimized material usage. Both versions of the Shamal Ultra C17 will continue to use a carbon fiber hub body with extra smooth USB bearings to make them as efficient as possible. The hubs for this wheel will continue to be differentiated between front and rear in order to optimize weight savings while considering structural and performance necessities that change with the individual roles of the two wheels. The 16 aerodynamic anodized aluminum spokes on the front wheel are laced radially while the 21 spokes of the rear wheel are grouped in the Mega G3 pattern, famous not only for its fantastic performance but also for its innovative design. Adjusting lock ring with microsetting has trickled down to this C17 version from the Bora family, further highlighting the Shamal’s status as a top tier race wheel.Features
