Wheel technologies that work together
Vittoria’s unique history and experience has enabled the development of wheels for tires and tubulars that match perfectly. All our technical knowhow is working together in harmony to inspire you to play harder.
Wider rim profiles (WST/WSR)
Their research, testing and practical experience shows that wide tubular rim profiles (WST) and wide tire rim profiles (WSR) improves tire performance in comparison to traditional narrow rim profiles. Vittoria wheels are designed to benefit from this improvement. The tread contact area is shorter and wider, so the tire grips and handles better in corners. In addition the tire casing (clincher and tubulars) deforms less, making the tire faster because of lower rolling resistance.
AS asymmetric rims build a stiffer wheel
The AS asymmetric rim is the foundation for a laterally stiffer wheel, by balancing the spoke angles on left and right sides. This is needed on disc-braked fronts, where the Centerlock® sleeve displaces the hub flange sideways out of the centre, as well as on rear hubs. The 2.5 mm offset from centre on AS rims minimizes differences in spoke tension and equalizes spoke-lacing angles, making the wheel stiffer and more stable.
