Campagnolo has introduced its 2012 range of medium-profile wheels, one of which is the Shamal Ultra. Aside from their higher level of reactivity and performance, the wheels feature innovative technologies to achieve the key features of road bike wheels, including stiffness, light weight, and aerodynamics.
Equipped with carbon-aluminum hub bodies, the new Shamal Ultra wheels offer optimum stiffness and weight. The USB ceramic bearings within the hub increased smoothness while decreasing friction. Along with the clincher and tubular versions is an exclusive Campagnolo two-way fit mode.
Weights on the 2012 Campagnolo Shamal Ultra Wheels are the same as the earlier versions. The combined weight of both the clincher and tubular versions is 1,425g. Weighing in at 1,440g, the two-way fit model is a little heavier and it is compatible with either clinchers or tubulars.
