The same qualities that have made the RACING 5 such a popular wheelset in the past combine with new elements to make an affordable but race ready wheel.

The new 20 spoke design in addition to the asymmetric rear rim profile offers notable performance increases in terms of both increased lateral and torsional rigidity as well as increased reactivity.

The new design allows for more homogenous spoke tensions and makes for a sturdier, higher performing wheelset that weighs in at over 100 grams less than its previous version.

With a wide variety of pricing, rider needs & configurations available we advise all customers to contact us so that we can determine the exact set-up they need at our best prices! Why not use our handy live chat feature below?

DIFFERENTIATED RIM HEIGHT

24 mm at the front to provide optimal handling; 27,5 mm at the rear for transmitting all your power to the wheel.

Racing-5-hs-asym
NEW ASYMMETRIC RIM PROFILE

asymmetrical rear rim profile allows for better balancing of spoke tensions between drive and non drive side, giving better symetry to an asymmetric component. Increased efficiency and reactivity are sure to be noted.

Racing-5-hs-spokes
DOUBLE-BUTTED STEEL SPOKES WITH AERO PROFILE

enable maximum aerodynamic penetration.

Racing-5-hs-hub
OVERSIZED HUBS

increase wheel stiffness and reactivity

HIGH GRADE, TOP QUALITY STEEL BEARINGS WITH CUP AND CONE CONSTRUCTION

reduce friction and ensure consistent performance over time.
