Campagnolo Shamal Ultra Dark 2-Way Fit Clincher Wheelset - $1,650.00

At a time when all things carbon are the cat's meow, aluminum wheels often sit in the shadows, overlooked by riders interested more in the latest and greatest in aero carbon clinchers than tried-and-true aluminum. But aluminum wheels aren't going the way of the Dodo any time soon, especially since the technology, quality, and longevity are improving year after year. The Campagnolo Shamal Ultra 2-Way Fit Dark Label Wheelset is no exception. It's difficult to describe the Shamals without first mentioning the beautiful, dark titanium-colored finish. Even though we're proud of the photos on our site, it's nearly impossible to convey the Shamal's spectacular finish in a photograph. The second distinguishing aspect of the Shamals is the unique rear spoke pattern that features seven sets of three parallel-laced aerodynamic spokes The spokes also receive Campagnolo's Spoke Anti-Rotation System, designed to keep the spokes correctly positioned for maximum aerodynamic efficiency and reduced drag. Easily accessible lightweight aluminum nipples further reduce rotational weight and make adjustments much easier than internal nipples. The front wheel has 16 spokes, laced radially. The Shamals are built with a 26mm-deep front rim for optimal handling and a 30mm rear for stability and stiffness-not deep enough to blow you over in a crosswind, but still aero enough to gain some advantages. Campy also used their Toroidal Milling7 technology in the rim design, a process that machines out material between the spokes to further reduce the rotational weight of the wheel. Updated this year is Campy's 2-Way rim fit technology. 2-Way Fit creates a tight, seamless interface between the tire bead and rim, so you can use traditional clinchers or tubeless clinchers.Fulcrum's patented MoMag system (Mounting Magnet) is also applied to the Shamals through a rather ingenious process. - $1,650.00
