The wavy leading-edge design is intended to reduce aerodynamic drag. By disrupting the airflow as it passes over the rim, this design helps minimize the negative effects of turbulence and reduces drag. Smoother airflow around the rim results in improved cycling performance, especially in situations where aerodynamics play a significant role, like time trials or triathlons.
Boundary Layer Control
The wavy leading edge controls the boundary layer flow, which is the thin layer of air that directly interacts with the rim's surface. This control reduces the separation of the boundary layer from the rim, which is a common source of drag in traditional wheel designs.
The irregular shape of the leading edge leads to the formation of small vortices, which helps delay the separation of the boundary layer. These vortices reduce the pressure drag on the wheel.
The ULTRON wheel is the epitome of aerodynamic excellence.
With its unique two-spoke design with a wavy leading edge and different heights of rim profile, it minimizes air resistance, while the wavy leading edge disrupts airflow, reducing turbulence and drag.
This combination results in a wheelset that slices through the wind like a precision instrument, offering a significant advantage in races, time trials, and triathlons.
This unique design results in unrivaled wheel stability in crosswinds
Each spoke is engineered for maximum stiffness and strength, ensuring exceptional power transfer and control.
High-quality sealed bearings in the hub guarantee a smooth and efficient ride.
Now you don't have to choose between speed and wind resistance
The innovative design makes the ULTRON as stable as a 50mm profile wheel at the same time faster than a 90mm profile wheel.
