The new Shamal was studied specifically to increase compatibility with 25 and 28mm. This new rim/tire interface proves to be more aerodynamic when compared to the same size tires mated to a C15 rim. The new C17 also allows for a more surefooted grip on the road in addition to increased comfort while increasing rigidity and thus reactivity at the same time thanks to its wider stance and optimized material usage. Both versions of the new Shamal Ultra C17 will continue to use a carbon fiber hub body with extra smooth USB bearings to make them as efficient as possible. The hubs for this newly designed wheel will continue to be differentiated between front and rear in order to optimize weight savings while considering structural and performance necessities that change with the individual roles of the two wheels. The 16 aerodynamic anodized aluminum spokes on the front wheel are laced radially while the 21 spokes of the rear wheel are grouped in the Mega G3 pattern, famous not only for its fantastic performance but also for its innovative design. A new adjusting lock ring with microsetting has trickled down to this new C17 version from the Bora family, further highlighting the Shamal’s status as a top tier race wheel.
The new advanced SHAMAL ULTRA C17 represents the same fantastic performance that has made it THE go to aluminum race wheel for the better part of two decades while adding more versatility and performance.
2-WAY FIT IS THE PROFILE WHICH MAKES IT POSSIBLE TO FIT BOTH A TUBELESS TIRE OR A CLASSIC CLINCHER.
With 2-Way Fit, Campagnolo customers will be able to personally test which of the two solutions suits them best or use the clincher for training and the tubeless tire for the day of the race.
With no doubt tubeless tires are the future of road cycling. Apart from greater comfort, the advantages are many: using a tubeless tire you can exploit the greater smoothness due to the absence of friction between the tire and the tube. There are no risks of sudden deflation when a tubeless tire is punctured, a great advantage in safety terms. The lack of tubes eliminates puncture risks.
And what if the tubeless tire has a puncture? The Campagnolo 2-Way Fit system allows you to use a traditional inner tube by simply removing the hermetic closure valve to ride home with no problem.
