The gold standard of performance aluminum racing wheels goes by the name of Campagnolo Shamal Mille C17 Clincher Rear Wheel.
The stealth version of this performance wheelset goes by the name of Shamal MilleTM and the sophisticated surface treatment that gives this wheelset its sleek and elegant dark look also represents a signifi cant performance advantage. This treatment permits surefooted and strong braking power, above and beyond that of normal aluminium rims, in both wet and dry conditions.
New for this year is a C17 rim that ensures a better rim/tire interface and thus improved performance espescially when using 25 and 28mm tires. The already elegant wheelset gets a facelift in the form of black anodized nipples, to complete its understated dark look 100%.
The new Shamal Mille is sure to turn heads of both the competition on race day as well as those next to you at the stoplight.
USB Ultra Smooth Bearings - the hubs with USB ceramic bearings (Ultra Smooth Bearings) further enhance the wheels' smoothness and reduce weight and the need for maintenance.
G3 geometry - better transfer of the driving torque, better lateral rigidity, reduction of the stress in the rear wheel spokes. And thanks to the G3 system that compensates for the forces acting on the 2 sides of the wheel, there are no more wheel vibrations, even for heavier people.
Rim Dynamic Balance – Aluminium wheels - The concept is simple and elegant: balance the weight of the gasket, with an item of similar weight placed on the exact opposite side. For top models, this is obtained by a special operation on the section of the rim opposite the rim joint.
Spokes Dynamic Balance - For entry-level models, Dynamic Balance is obtained by using two oversized spokes in the section opposite the joint. The result is a wheel with perfectly balanced rotational dynamics.
MoMag - A technology that offers several advantages to the structural integrity of the wheel as well as eliminating the need for rim tape. The name derives from “Mounting Magnet” system, shortened to MoMag.
Plasma Electrolytic Oxidation - offers elegant finish and enhances braking power and modularity.
Toroidal Milling Spiral Groove on the Braking Track - reduces braking distance while maintaining silent braking.
Differentiated Rim Height - Front 24-27mm/ Rear 27 - 30mm
MoMag - allows the external profile of the rim to be free of holes.
Aerodynamic Spokes in Aluminum - maximum air penetration, less weight and greater reactivity.
Differentiated Spokes - 16 radial spokes for the front, 21 spokes for the rear, doubled on the right and exclusive Mega-G3 spokes to reduce vibration, increase stiffness and transmission of power to the wheel.
Black Nipples - black Oxidation Finishing self-locking aluminum nipples outside the rim. Allows easy maintenance and less truing over the wheel lifetime.
Spokes Anti-Rotation System - it keeps the spokes in a position of maximum aerodynamics.
Ceramic USB Bearings with Differentiated Diamaters - 28mm for the front, 30mm for the rear. Less friction, less weight, greater smoothness and the same performance over time.
Hub body in Carbon - high lateral stiffness, reducing weight to a minimum.
Axle in Aluminum - low weight, high stiffness.
Oversized Flange - it increases torsional stiffness, increasing its reactivity at every change in the cyclist’s pace.
