Description

The already best-in-class Racing 5 wheelset goes from high to higher performance thanks to its new design. The same qualities that have made the RACING 5 such a popular wheelset in the past combine new elements in order to make an affordable but also race ready wheel. 

The asymmetrical 20-spoke design rear rim profile allows for better balancing of spoke tensions between drive and non drive side, giving better symmetry to an asymmetric component, resulting in remarkable performance increases in terms of both increased lateral and torsional rigidity as well as increased reactivity.

The new design allows for more homogenous spoke tensions and makes for a sturdier, higher performing wheelset that weighs in at over 100 grams less than its previous version. 

DB Steel Spokes with Aero Profile and Oversized Hubs - These spokes enable maximum aerodynamic penetration and the oversized hubs increase wheel stiffness and reactivity. The oversized flange on the rear drive side also provides greater torsional stiffness and reactivity with each pedal stroke.

The new rim is wider than before, 17C.
