Campagnolo Bora Ultra 80 Wheelset – Tubular

Material: carbon
Rim Width: 24.2 mm
Rim Depth: 80 mm

Campagnolo’s wind-cheating Bora Ultra 80 Wheelset takes its name from the “north wind” of the Mediterranean. This is an acceptable choice, because — if there was once ever a wind that you would need to keep from gaining purchase on you, it is the Bora, whose top speed of 136 miles per hour almost doubles the bottom speed of hurricane-grade winds. At the same time as it is obviously not equal to these conditions, the Bora 80s’ profile is the most efficient balance between handling and aerodynamics in Campagnolo’s legendary line of deep rim wheels, placing it on the testa della corsa of aerodynamic wheels writ large. The edges’ generous 80-millimeter depth is likely the Bora 80s’ top selling point, but Campagnolo has also gifted them with a much wider, more up to date width of 24. 2 millimeters. This can be a marked increase when compared with the former width of 20 millimeters, and its benefits include better handling and cornering, lower rolling resistance, and a smoother ride. It also nets better lateral stiffness and — in a counter-intuitive twist — in reality improves aerodynamics. The width also saves weight by letting Campagnolo build a more structurally sound rim with less material, and it means you’ll be able to mount bigger tires, as much as 27 millimeters, for a tubular ride that is more plush and durable than ever. The Bora’s deep rims and iconic branding could also be the primary image we go together with pro-level wheels, but their heart is in reality within the CULT bearings. CULT marries superlative ceramic bearings with thermochemically treated Cronitect races for a claimed 3. 5 more watts per pedal stroke over non-CULT bearings. The interface between the ceramic balls and Cronitect races is so smooth that they virtually do not wear out and only require a thin film of oil as an alternative of grease. Campagnolo touts these as the lowest friction bearings on the earth. At the same time as we typically approach anything that smacks of marketing hyperbole with healthy skepticism, taking the Boras for a spin lends credence to Campy’s claim. A good wheel cannot j…
