Asymm Turbulate – Disc Brake

£2,095.00£2,615.00

Never standing still we’re always striving to make the fastest faster even if realistically only marginal gains can be made at this level. Our Turbulate concept is the result of many months of research and development validated in the Wind Tunnel and gives the standard XWide Asymm that marginal edge. Essentially a serrated perimeter detail disrupting the air to assist flow across the tyre to rim interface and as it exits the rear wheel marginally reducing overall drag by approximately 1w. Recommend for riders averaging 40kph +

Description

The Asymm, a breakthrough in disc wheel design first launched by Revolver in 2015 and still the most aerodynamic wheel available. Built here in the UK our unmistakable asymmetrical design features a deep continual lens profile to the non drive side taking full advantage of the extra lateral clearance available while our ‘wave lenticular’ rippled profile efficiently manages airflow over the drive side where lateral clearances are limited by the drivetrain. The result is an unparalleled aerodynamic performance regardless of wind speed or angle.

Tyre choice is made easier thanks to our latest 21mm internal XWide rim profile supporting an aero efficient interface running tyre widths from 23mm up to 28mm with only a marginal drag penalty using the increasingly popular wider 28mm option. Wider tyres have increased tyre volume so run at lower pressures to achieve the same Crr while improving traction on imperfect road surfaces, enhancing handling and comfort as well as reducing the risk of puncturing. Note that due to our wide internal rim that tyres will typically sit approximately 2mm wider than stated tyre size when inflated.

The Asymm’s method of construction involves the precise bonding of carbon fibre disc skins onto a dedicated spoked wheel featuring our full carbon XWide tubeless compatible clincher rim. At the heart of the wheel we use a DT Swiss 240 EXP hub unit, superb quality and durability with our option to upgrade to Ceramicspeed coated bearings, the absolute ultimate in rolling efficiency. This spoked wheel method allows a degree of vertical compliance for a more familiar feel and reduces vibration fatigue further, something welcomed for longer Triathlon events where a Marathon distance run may follow.

The graph below shows comparisons of popular Disc wheels showing the Asymm models out perform overall throughout a wide range of yaw. It also illustrates the marginal benefits of the addition of our Turbulate detail. The graph shows mean -/+ rotation yaw at realistic interaction speeds.
