If you’ve heard of a deep-fried chocolate bar then you’ll understand what we were thinking when we created the T38. The idea behind the deep fried chocolate bar is to pack as many calories into a snack as possible. With the carbon-rim T38, we packed as many go-fast features into a small package as possible.
We started with our newest 38 mm profile rim that is very precisely laid up using the latest technology. That allows us to reduce the weight of the rim while increasing its ability to dissipate heat for improved braking performance. That allows us to build these rims into a package that weighs a mere 1270 g. You’ll notice that these wheels gain speed and climb like nothing you’ve used before. And once you get up to speed the aero profile and wide Swiftedge allows you cruise along using less effort.
It’s not just the rim that helps with the acceleration though – credit also needs to go our Dynamic Spoke Pattern, or DSP for short. This lacing pattern gives you maximum power transfer but thanks to the buzz reducing Sapim spokes, you still get a comfortable ride.
Like a chocolate bar, the centre of the T38 houses some important stuff. We use our Weapons Grade Machining process to eliminate as much weight as possible and to provide an extremely precise bed for our hybrid TFT bearings that helps to make the ride smoother and extends the life of the bearings. We work hard to make our wheels as durable as we can but we know that racing is hard on equipment so we have a free (!) Crash Replacement Policy that allows you to purchase rims at with a big discount should they be damaged for any reason.
The T38 wheelset is an extremely versatile wheelset that has more features than an artery-clogging snack has calories. Unlike a deep-fried chocolate bar, however, the T38 will make you fast.
