Bormio SL Road Wheels

  • 1580 grams per pair
  • 430 gram rims, for low moment of inertia
  • Triple butted round Pillar Sandvik stainless steel spokes
  • Front 20 radial, 24 rear radial non-drive/2 cross drive side
  • Traditional "J" spoke for easy maintenance

Hubs use 6 Japanese sealed bearings, with the addition of a ring of needle bearings in the freehub body/axle contact. This reduces friction between the rotating surfaces during freewheel decents. All wheels use Pillar spokes, drawn from Sandvik stainless steel. Hubs use compatible freehub bodies available in Campagnolo or Shimano/Sram. Wheelset weights are quoted with Shimano freehub bodies and rim strips—no corner cutting here.

Suggested retail price: $490/pair.
