RRC46 DI-CUT 46 wheels
DT Swiss have revamped their hub range, with the scallop-flanged Di-Cut family heading up their technology trio. The fancy flanges let DT Swiss use bladed nail-head spokes in an ultra high-tension lace-up. It does mean any spoke tensioning means removing the tyre and rim tape, which is a pain, and spare spokes could be an issue. Add the RWS ratchet skewers though and the upside is an impressively stiff and sharp-feeling wheelset. At 651g front, and 779g rear, they’re lighter than Zipp 404s so accelerating and climbing are no issue and they give a really crisp edge to any ride. They’re definitely not a comfort-enhancing set though, so if your bike is harsh you may be better off with smoother wheels. While the simple rim profile is shallow enough to turn in reasonably responsively, it definitely gets pushed around more in cross winds too. Because it’s deliberately designed to cope well with extended braking on long descents, the brake track also takes a while to heat up and bite, which takes some nerve tingling to get used to at first.
Quickview computer mount www.capecycles.co.za We’ve looked at K-Edge’s beautifully machined Garmin mount recently, and while we were impressed with the quality. Now Sram have released their alternative: the Quickview. Instead of CNC’d aluminium, Sram have used a plastic composite for its construction. At just 20g it’s nearly half the weight of the K-Edge, it’s significantly cheaper.
ZIPP 202 Firecrest Carbon Clincher Wheel set RRP R24 000.00 www.capecycle.co.za
ZIPP Super 9 Carbon Clincher RRP R22 000.00 www.capecycles.co.za
The Zipp Super-9 Carbon Clincher Disc is the fastest wheel ever, with the performance and convenience of Zipp’s Carbon Clincher technology. When it comes to disc wheels, Zipp is obsessed with aero excellence.
Zipp took the classic 202 wheel set and transformed it into a stiff, lightweight and aerodynamic speed weapon ideal for every road you travel.
