Ritchey Developed Its Fastest Clinchers Ever

The WCS Apex 46 millimeter clincher is Ritchey´s latest carbon clincher wheel which already has the UCI official approval. The wheels are equipped with 46 millimeter aero carbon rims laced to cold forged Ritchey WCS hubs with Sapim CX Ray Aero stainless steel spokes.

A scrim layer on the rim and special blue brake pads prevent overheating in extreme braking situations and offer superior heat management. The rear hub drive-side spokes are laced using a ‘Trifecta’ pattern, a new variation in which a two cross lacing pattern as used on the non-drive side is reinforced with radial spoke.

This additional reinforcement counteracts pedaling stress, providing a positive power transfer, while maintaining a weight-saving low spoke count. The wheel set comes with the blue pads and high quality rim tape. Spoke count: 20H 1x lacing (front); 24H 2x lacing (rear). The front wheel weights 643 grams and the rear 894 grams.
