While most will recognize the tubular wheels as the go-to choice for top professional riders, the fact remains that tubular tires are less practical than clinchers for those of us not fortunate enough to have a support car with spare wheels following behind. Now, thanks to some diligent work by Campagnolo engineers, there will be no more reason to sacrifice performance for tire security as the Bora wheel family is now available in clincher version in addition to the tubular version seen in the pro-tour.
Maximum aerodynamics, extreme speed, incredible handling. The Bora(TM) One is sure to give you the utmost satisfaction in any situation. Even on the most challenging mountain curves.
Perhaps the most noticeable improvement will come in the form of a new, wider profile of the Bora rim.
Moving the width from 20,5mm to 24,2mm allowed engineers not only to improve upon aerodynamics but also to house wider tires.
The wider tires increase control as the contact area between tire and asphalt is increased, thus improving grip in addition to creating a more comfortable ride.
The new wider structure also represents an increase in structural strength, thus rendering the already universally lauded resistance and reliability of the Bora even more adept at handling any course or condition that presents itself on race day.
The wider structure aids in aerodynamics, increases structural integrity but also allows engineers to create a lighter version of the famed Bora wheel.
While the contrary might seem more likely, the larger profile of the Bora rim creates a stronger structure with less need for material intended for structural reinforcement.
Campagnolo is thus able to give increased structural integrity at a lower weight with regards to the rim.
The graphic application was also studied and a new method was utilized which allows Campagnolo to apply the logos via water transfer thus avoiding heavier adhesives.
This too represents a weight savings of nearly 15 grams in addition to a cleaner and more durable aesthetic quality.
Weight is further reduced thanks to a smaller profile front hub applied to this new Bora design.
Campagnolo engineers were able to reduce the weight and size of the hub while maintaining all of the performance characteristics of the previous version.
In other words, the same fantastic Bora performance in a smaller package.
