Shamal Carbon Disc Brake
For Campagnolo, the SHAMAL family has always represented an evolutionary impulse beyond its own limitations, a challenge and a triumph. Since 1992, this wheel has been an icon for enthusiasts, who with SHAMAL saw the birth of the high-profile concept, a forerunner of what is currently available on the market. SHAMAL still has the same meaning for Campagnolo: breaking the mould to face the future.
The first Campagnolo wheel dedicated to endurance was born in keeping with this mantra, with a 21 mm internal channel that can accommodate larger tyres and ensure the cyclist maximum comfort on races and long rides. This new product was intended for a broader customer base, with a new, more accessible price point, but with every feature necessary to guarantee the maximum performance and style that characterise Campagnolo wheels. Carbon rim with unidirectional finish and a differentiated front/rear profile, modern rounded profile, new aluminium hubs, cup-and-cone bearing system. Every design decision is determined by the sole goal of improving cyclists’ performance over long hours on the saddle, providing comfort and rideability in all conditions.
The profile of the rim, which has an internal diameter of 21 mm, makes for perfect pairing with 25, 28 and 30 mm tyres.
The wide channel, however, makes this wheel a complete all-rounder, also suitable for larger tyres that are perfect for gravel biking. Thanks to 2-Way Fit technology, Campagnolo guarantees complete compatibility with both clincher and tubeless tyres. The hole-free upper bridge, achieved through the patented MoMag system, allows a weight saving, increased rigidity and now also an aid to using tubeless tyres: no tape is required for the seal. Maintaining and cleaning the wheel on tyre changes has never been easier. These wheels are designed to ensure extreme performance, comfort and versatility for cyclists.
Campagnolo has always been a byword for reliability: the G3 spoking system with double spokes on the left of the front wheel ensures balanced and safe braking in all conditions. The construction of the whole wheel, engineered by considering every single component as part of a system, makes each Campagnolo product a godsend on longer rides, cyclosportives and the most demanding adventures.
SHAMAL CARBON DB:
a renewed icon that maintains its blazing, indefatigable soul, like the wind from which it takes its name.

C21, 21 mm internal channel:
Differentiated profile, front 35 mm / rear 40 mm:
- The rim design allows the utmost versatility in tyre use, from the most comfortable for road use (25, 28, 30 mm) to the largest for cyclo-cross and gravel use (starting from 32 mm and going up to the largest, 45/50 mm).
- Thanks to the patented MoMag system and the upper bridge with no holes, SHAMAL is ready for use with tubeless tyres but without requiring tape for the seal. Easy maintenance and cleaning guaranteed.
- The 2-Way Fit profile allows both clincher and tubeless tyres to be fitted. This makes SHAMAL the ideal wheel for all road riders (traditionalists and innovators), but also for all gravel riders who use tubeless tyres without abandoning the option of fitting an inner tube in case of major punctures, a lifesaver far from home
- SHAMAL CARBON: perfect for long biking adventures.
Campagnolo’s unique style, technology and refinement... finally accessible:
- SHAMAL is engineered to ensure the utmost comfort on longer rides, both in terms of bumps and ease of riding, without ever sacrificing performance.
- 40 mm at the rear to guarantee maximum responsiveness and complete power transfer
- 35 mm at the front ensure the best possible rideability, in all conditions.
The first Campagnolo-branded carbon wheel at a new price point, with the aim of sharing Campagnolo’s technical advantage with a broader customer base - The first Campagnolo wheel in the endurance segment: performance combined with unprecedented comfort - The well-known cup-and-cone bearing system guarantees unique smoothness which, combined with the possibility of adjusting the play, positions the Campagnolo system at a higher level than standard bearings in terms of both performance and durability (option to purchase Campagnolo USB and CULT ceramic systems separately). - The unidirectional, unpainted carbon rim allows a weight saving, dropping the wheelset weight to 1585 g and making SHAMAL CARBON a complete all-rounder.
Wheel developed for versatility, comfort and performance:
Each wheel component is designed to ensure maximum performance, to increase comfort and the range of tyres that can be used.
Rim made entirely of high modulus carbon:
The unpainted unidirectional carbon rim delivers the unique rigidity, light weight and style of Campagnolo.
Cup-and-cone bearing system:
Easy to adjust balls/bearings - reduced possibility of ball/bearing play - precise cycling operations - steady performance levels over time, USB and CULT update option (aftermarket kit)
Hub structure in extremely rigid lightweight aluminium:
Designed for optimal rigidity and weigh
Campagnolo has developed an assembly architecture which, compared with a traditional wheel, makes it possible to improve energy transfer, reduce the stress on the spokes on the right and increase transverse rigidity.This is achieved because in G3 geometry the right-hand side of the rear wheel is fitted with twice as many spokes as the left.
A technology that offers several advantages to the structural integrity of the wheel as well as eliminating the need for rim tape. The name derives from “Mounting Magnet” system, shortened to MoMag.
N3W is our future: a single standard to manage all the Campagnolo cassettes… present, past and... still to come!
N3W has the same groove profile as the classic Campagnolo body but it is 4.4 mm shorter, making it lighter.
To make it compatible with ALL of today’s cassettes with 11-tooth starting sprockets, simply use the N3W ring (kit ring + ring code AC21-N3W) which makes them the same length as the classic body.
