Whilst you take into consideration the performance advantages that tubular road and cyclocross tires provide — smoother ride, less rolling resistance, the power to run lower pressures safely, the lower weight than tire-and-tube combos, and more — it makes sense that they are massively popular under the professionals. Bring the ones advantages into the world of mountain bikes, alternatively, by way of the wheel masters at SRAM, and you have got something in reality ground-breaking: the SRAM XX Upward push Carbon Tubular Wheelset, a set in a position to dissect the competition, one climb, sprint, and podium at a time. Starting with the rim, SRAM did not simply beef-up an existing cyclocross or road tubular design, even though they did consult the rim geniuses over at Zipp for input. In the long run, SRAM developed a competition-focused XC race rim with unidirectional carbon fiber and a special resin designed to both mitigate impacts and vibrations to enhance ride quality, even as also making the rim more durable overall. Not needing to integrate bead-grabbing sidewalls into the rim saved enormous weight even as boosting the rim’s structural integrity. It is light enough to fly but tough enough to take a beating on par with the hardest XC wheelsets available in the market, so riders can scratch durability off their list of concerns. The rim then gets laced with 24 Sapim CX-Ray straight-pull spokes in a two-cross pattern, front and rear, to spice up the wheels’ stiffness and again make stronger their toughness. Moving down into the hub, we discover SRAM’s Speedball ceramic bearings keeping rolling action silky smooth and fast. The rear hub employs the company’s new Double Time ratchet mechanism, kicking up the hub’s engagement points from an industry average around 24-30 as much as 52. Why does this matter? Whilst you resume pedaling after coasting, the more points of engagement within the rear hub, the shorter distance it’s a must to move the pedals before you might be in reality pushing the bike forward again, versus just “dead spinning.” This makes the wheel way more respons…
