Astuto Competition CX 35mm Carbon Tubular Discbrake
I've been building 'CX' wheelsets for years. What makes them any different? Generally speaking CX wheels will take a bit more 'hits' than your average road wheel so it needs to be tough enough to withstand the drops and smacks. At the same time you want a hub that is super easy to service with good geometry and superb resistance to the elements. Performancewise - keeping the weight down is critical as well as having a good footprint for the tire selections at low pressure.
Our CTX rimset provides the sole of this wheelset. Constructed from carefully matched and blended high-modulus and mid-modulus carbon with special ballistic fabric reinforcement, it's a tough rim and resilient towards heavier hits. It can handle wider spoke tension variations allowing greater tuneability for each rider's preference.
Of course this is a tubular (glue on) design because overall, that provides the best performance for serious cyclocross or pave racing.
