HADRON² Ultimate 500 Disc Brake
Top level aero performance on any course, in any conditions, the HADRON² Ultimate 500 aero wheels are at home on twisty mountain passes, as well as for time trial and triathlon courses. Their shallow rim profiles are designed to maximize handling and aero stability in high wind conditions by minimizing the sensitivity to gusty crosswinds. The 20mm inner rim width is optimum for minimum rolling resistance with 25mm and 28mm tyres and remains compatible with even wider tyres. Available only in disc brake version. Full carbon clincher, tubeless ready construction. UCI approved. Including lifetime warranty for material and workmanship defects and a Fair-Share-Policy for any other riding damage.
Engineered with the continuous learning since Day-1 at Swiss Side, combining our latest aerodynamic research methods from our Formula 1 background and derived technologies. Compared to the HADRON Ultimate, this latest HADRON2 Ultimate rim shape reduces steering moment by a further 26% for increased stability in the windy and gusty conditions, whilst reducing the aero drag by a 10 - 20% depending on the rim depth, also thanks to the new Aerolite II spoke developed in collaboration with DT Swiss. Built with the latest top level 180 DICUT hub, SINC ceramic bearings and the highest quality production through our partnership with DT Swiss, there is zero compromise on performance and quality so you can set new personal best times on your favorite courses.
