SRAM Introduces Road Wheelsets

Not surprisingly after the take-over of Zipp, the Americans have recently launched a new line of road wheelsets under the brand name SRAM.

The range comprises three carbon models with different rim depths. They feature advanced aerodynamics through their hybrid toroidal shape, deep rim profiles and wide aero bladed spokes. According to SRAM, the wheels are fast, stiff yet comfortable.

The structural woven carbon damps vibration, the aluminium surface gives reliable braking and clincher convenience. The S40 has a rim depth of 38 millimetres and a maximum width of 20 millimetres. The set has a total weight of 1615 grams and has two colour options for the spokes and hubs: black or silver anodized.

The rim depth of the S60 is a little bit higher than the S40, 60 millimetres and is also two millimetres wider. The S60 weighs 1750 grams a pair and has two colour options as well. Finally the S80 has a rim depth of 82 millimetres and has a total weight of 2077 grams. Each model is SRAM and Shimano cassette compatible.
