WR Compositi Aetos 33 Alpha carbon road wheels are lightweight, high-performance road wheels with an aerodynamic profile. The wide rim design provides an even stronger, stiffer wheel as well as a little extra cushion on rough terrain.
For those long steep climbs and the exhilarating descent that follows, the WR Compositi Aetos 33 Alpha wheels will take you up into the cool mountain air, and have you confidently speeding down the other side. Aerodynamic, lightweight, compliant wheels with a reliable braking capacity and the perfect measure of stiffness to convert your efforts to the road, they provide great handling in and out of corners, stiffness on standing climbs, and are responsive under acceleration.
Designed to optimise aerodynamic performance, the Aetos 33 Alpha come in a choice of 33mm, 51mm, and 58mm. The section profile of each rim has been carefully designed in order to increase crosswind deflection without compromising stiffness, while the high rim profile provides you with a discernibly fast ride.
The V-brake version of the Aetos 33 Alpha rims come with a specially developed brake track, treated with a high-performance, heat-dissipating resin designed to provide consistent and reliable braking. With a perfect balance, the smooth-rolling aluminium/carbon fibre hubs offer an easy to use mount-and-play system that allows you to quickly remove the freewheel without the assistance of tools.
Entirely Made in Italy, the hubs are equipped with 2RS bearings, ensuring your bearings are tightly sealed, always well-lubricated and safe from any contaminants.
The front wheel is laced radially. The rear wheel has a 2-cross lacing pattern, with 16 spokes on the drive side developed to manage the power output on the drive side. Light, robust and stable in cross-winds, these wheels are optimised for speed and performance and it shows. The WR Compositi Aetos 33 Alpha wheelset is made and laced by hand, electronically registered and entirely Made In Italy.ALPHA SERIES
