Designing a carbon fibre clincher rim capable of keeping the tire's anchoring bead in place: many manufacturers draw back from the challenge ? but Campagnolo® won it. The same performance as the tubular model can be found in this clincher version.
As with the tubular version, we use the new CULT™ bearing technology which guarantees incredible smoothness and long life for the ceramic bearings.
Campagnolo has improved the dynamic balance of Hyperon Ultra™ Two wheels: instead of large-section spokes, balancing is now provided by the distribution of carbon fibre on the side opposite the valve. This allows further weight reduction, better aerodynamics and improved aesthetics.
CULT (Ceramic Ultimate Level Technology)
Today Campagnolo® is evolving the ceramic ball bearing concept using CULT™ (Ceramic Ultimate Level Technology). They have combined the best ceramic ball bearings on the market with a stainless chromium steel with exceptional hardness called Cronitect®. It's the result of the "Advanced by FAG" technology, Schaeffler Group, and it will be a Campagnolo exclusivity for the next 3 years (for the cycling field). The thermochemical treatment of the surface layer ensures resistance to corrosion and wear. It also improves smoothness and grease is no longer required.
Cronitect® has achieved exceptional results in the salt spray fog test, standing out decisively from the other stainless steels. CULT™ technology is destined only for the top products: Super Record™ cranksets and the highest range wheels.
CULT: Ceramic Ultimate Level Technology. Behind this new project is the exclusiveness of Cronitect® steel;, using "Advanced by FAG" technology by Schaeffler Group technology, employed for the bearing races. This is a steelsteel which takes resistance to corrosion to the highest level; to the point that no grease is required for lubrication, but only a light film of oil. CULT™ is a solution which increases the smoothness of ceramic ball bearings incredibly and takes them to the next level. Cronitect® steel for CULT™ ball bearings will be a Campagnolo® exclusive for the next three years in cycling.
