Citec releases an innovative design to merge the benefits of a carbon wheelset with a metal braking surface in its 6000 CX Carbon Tubular Wheelset Clincher. Light yet durable, the carbon tubular wheelset has an aluminum braking surface and a rim depth of 50mm.
The metal strip on the braking surface is replaceable and the wheelset also features hidden nipples for better aerodynamics. (The internal nipples are located inside the carbon rim.) The front wheel has 12 black bladed spokes, wide flanges with an anodized 3-part front hub for lateral stiffness. It also features sealed cartridge bearings.
The rear wheel features anodized 2-part rear/hub attached to a HyperFlange hub with 16 bladed spokes. It has sealed bearings, a DT Swiss 240 S aluminium body compatible with Shimano 8/9/10-speed.
