2-WAY FIT™ is the innovative profile that lets you fit either a tubeless tire or a classic clincher.
Thanks to their properties, produced to specific Campagnolo design, CULT bearings offer extremely low friction, enabling maximum performance and energy savings when pedaling.
The concept is as simple as it is genius: balancing the weight of the rim joint with a mass of identical weight on the opposite side of the rim.
N3W stand for NEXT 3 WAYS, a patented standard for a freewheel body engineered to house 11-, 12- and 13-speed cassettes with 9-, 10- and 11-tooth starting sprockets that is still compatible with older 9- and 10-speed cassettes.
Thanks to 2-Way Fit™ technology, if you choose Campagnolo® wheels you can test them out to see which of the two solutions feels better for you, or use clinchers for training and tubeless for racing. Tubeless are without doubt the future of tires for road cycling. Apart from greater comfort, other big advantages include the fact that tubeless tires let you make the most of the greater smoothness due to the absence of friction between tire and inner tube. Plus, a tubeless will not suddenly deflate when punctured, which is definitely a good thing in terms of safety. And finally, tubeless tires do away with any risk of pinch flats, because there is no inner tube. If you get a puncture with a tubeless tire, the Campagnolo® 2-Way Fit™ system lets you simply remove the airtight valve, fit a classic inner tube and continue to pedal: problem solved.
The iconic CULT—ceramic bearings for Campagnolo racing bike wheels—are only mounted on the best hubs and cranksets and are revolutionary compared to other bearings on the market. Thanks to their properties, produced to specific Campagnolo design, CULT bearings offer extremely low friction, enabling maximum performance and energy savings when pedaling. The top-quality ceramic balls with high-precision roundness and resistance turn inside polymer cages on stainless steel races that are extremely resistant to wear and tear. These cages are designed with tolerances accurate to the micron, which maximizes their efficiency and durability. CULT bearings do not deform or corrode, ensuring long-term constant performance and product quality. Their maintenance requires only periodic cleaning and light lubrication with synthetic oil. CULT bearings have a 40% lower friction coefficient than standard sealed bearings and they roll for 5 and a half times longer in tests. CULT ceramic bearings are available for the best-known Campagnolo racing bike wheels: Bora Ultra WTO, Ghibli and Hyperon Ultra.
RIM Dynamic Balance™ – aluminum wheels The concept is as simple as it is genius: balancing the weight of the rim joint with a mass of identical weight on the opposite side of the rim. For top-end models this is achieved by intervening on the section of the rim opposite the joint. SPOKES Dynamic Balance™ For entry-level models, the balance is achieved with two oversized spokes in the section opposite the joint. The result is a wheel with perfectly balanced rotational dynamics. RIM Dynamic Balance™ – Carbon wheels For carbon wheels, the principle is the same but the technology differs. The pieces of carbon cloth are aligned using a special procedure that ensures the rim is always balanced.
N3W stand for NEXT 3 WAYS, a patented standard for a freewheel body engineered to house 11-, 12- and 13-speed cassettes with 9-, 10- and 11-tooth starting sprockets that is still compatible with older 9- and 10-speed cassettes. To make it compatible with all of today’s cassettes with 11-tooth starting sprockets, simply use the N3W ring (kit complete with ring + ring code AC21-N3W), which makes them the same length as the classic body. N3W is directly compatible with the new Campagnolo cassettes with 9- and 10-tooth starting sprockets. N3W has the same groove profile as the classic Campagnolo body but it is 4.4 mm shorter, making it much lighter. There is also a N3W Light version with an aeronautical-quality aluminum hub with optimized geometrics that delivers maximum torsional stiffness and maximum performance control. Special Campagnolo processes have resulted in a patented Next 3 Ways freewheel body with unmatched smoothness and lightness. The N3W freewheel body is used on Bora WTO, Bora Ultra WTO, and Hyperon Ultra carbon wheels for racing bikes and on Shamal Carbon wheels.
