The family of carbon aero wheels is further enhanced with the 33 mm profile, available in both rim and disc brake versions and designed to appeal to a broader customer base.
Bora wheels have been a market benchmark for top-end wheels since their introduction in 1998; after more than twenty years of innovation they are today taken to an even higher performance level. Following the success of the WTO (Wind Tunnel Optimized) line, the new Bora WTO 33 have been studied to offer yet another profile in addition to the existing 45, 60 and 77.
Each component of this wheel has been optimized in the wind tunnel in order to improve its aerodynamic performance. It therefore delivers multiple benefits that can be noted on different routes, from the most demanding of sprints to relaunching after a bend, while still ensuring efficiency on the flat and now also suitable for the hardest uphill finishes! It is a turning point in the all-rounder segment: a truly multi-purpose wheel.
This new product was given its initial trial testing by the pros on the UAE Team Emirates during the recent training camp in Spain and received some very positive feedback from the cyclists.
“This profile is a further option when we have to adapt to the different kinds of terrain we tackle over a season. I pedaled for a good many kilometers on it and have to say that it is a really versatile wheel," says Marco Marcato, ready for his debut in the Tour Down Under. “Its lighter weight is yet further added value and I can’t wait to try it out in a race, too!”
The new configuration brings some tangible advantages: wind tunnel testing carried out during the development stage gave extremely significant results for a low profile wheel. Compared to a wheel that is not wind tunnel optimized, this one gives an aerodynamic advantage of 7.5 watts at 45 km/h.
Bora WTO 33 wheels have the same USB ceramic bearings, guaranteeing legendary Campagnolo smoothness, and the traditional G3 spoke pattern, optimized thanks to the use of specially developed elliptical cross-section elements.
Modern studies confirm that tubeless is the best choice for rolling resistance, yet another reason for appreciating the 2-Way Fit technology that enables perfect compatibility with both tubeless tires or clinchers. The 19 mm internal rim width is studied to give the best performance with 25mm tread tires and it also compatible with the classic 23 mm options or the more comfortable 28 mm versions.
The Bora WTO 33 are available in a DB version in the Dark colorway, while the rim version also offers the more traditional Bright option at 2160 euros.
