Ambrosio’s New Stigma
This year’s newcomer at the joint COLIPED booth at Taipei Cycle is rim and wheelmaker Ambrosio. The company dates back to the early twentieth century and was among the first to produce carbon wheels.
Famous names such as Moser, Saronni, Hinault, Freire, and Rebellin all partnered with Ambrosio. The company launches the next generation full carbon 622 – 13C rim. The front rim is 38mm high, the rear rim 50mm. Both are available for clincher and tubular tires.
The wheel set features double-butted aerodynamic spokes and external black anodized Ergal nipples (20 in the front and 24 in the rear). The Ambrosio ball bearings hubs are compatible with Shimano/SRAM 8,9, and 10 speed systems as well as Campagnolo’s 9,10,11 speed set ups.
All sets are handmade. The front wheel is radial mounted, while the rear wheel is radial mounted on the non-drive side and two cross laced on drive side.
