EICMA show – Wheels

Much of the wheel stuff was launched last year, however there are a few new bits creeping through. Carbon rims are still a problem for clinchers however Fulcrum appear to have solved the problem as have Corima who also have some trendy ‘Fat weave’ carbon added into the latest range (pics in the TT review story to follow). Zipp’s 202 wheelset is a sub 900g set with pro-appeal as many of the Zipp teams used them to great success in the races this year. As ever expect a long waiting list for Carbon and yes they will be expensive.
