There are few things that feel nicer than riding a set of incredibly light wheels (well, maybe some other things which are not suitable for print.......) Riding a set of T28 wheels that weigh less than 1200 grams, you’re sure to get that 'magical’ feeling. You’ll immediately notice how quickly these wheels spin up out of a corner in your local weekday crit or as you grind up that hill that usually makes you cry for your mother. Whatever kind of riding you are doing, these wheelsets are sure to impress.
These wheels are built around our TFT bearings and precisely CNC machined Arsenal hubs. The bearings are some of the smoothest you can find, which saves you a little bit of energy, and you’ll find yourself saying, “Man, this feels nice!” The Arsenal hubs are small and light but are large enough to remain stiff so your power isn’t lost to flex. The lacing pattern we use on these wheels also helps power transmission, without a loss of ride quality. Once you get up to speed, these wheels will help keep you there with their aero profile (as much as is possible with a rim of this depth!). Crosswinds are also easy to handle with a rim of this height and shape.
This wheelset is perfect for riders who are looking to drop weight and add performance to their bikes. They are best for riders who need to accelerate often or climb hills but aren’t competing in time trials or triathlons. These are similar to the C28 wheels but if speed, lightness and feel are of the utmost importance then T28 wheelset is the right way to go.
