Born as the very first complete wheelset with each component in its build being specifically designed as a complete unit to ensure unparalleled efficiency and performance the Shamal continued to introduce new technologies that would change the way aluminium performance wheels were produced. So advanced was the Shamal in its early stages that it was found also in World Tour competition often and to this day is still perhaps the most race-ready aluminium wheelset available.
The modern Shamal includes all of the aforementioned technologies and represents years of solid research and development that culminates in the newest version of this prestigious line of wheels, the SHAMAL ULTRA C17. This new, wider profile meets the C17 standard and is perfect for use with the increasingly popular tire sizes. Available in both a clincher only version in addition to a 2-Way Fit™ version, the new Shamal was studied specifically to increase compatibility with 25 and 28mm.
This new rim/tire interface proves to be more aerodynamic when compared to the same size tires mated to a C15 rim. The new C17 also allows for a more surefooted grip on the road in addition to increased comfort while increasing rigidity and thus reactivity at the same time thanks to its wider stance and optimized material usage.
Both versions of the new Shamal Ultra C17 will continue to use a carbon fiber hub body with extra smooth USB bearings to make them as efficient as possible. The hubs for this newly designed wheel will continue to be differentiated between front and rear in order to optimize weight savings while considering structural and performance necessities that change with the individual roles of the two wheels.
The 16 aerodynamic anodized aluminium spokes on the front wheel are laced radially while the 21 spokes of the rear wheel are grouped in the Mega G3 pattern, famous not only for its fantastic performance but also for its innovative design. A new adjusting lock ring with microsetting has trickled down to this new C17 version from the Bora family, further highlighting the Shamal’s status as a top-tier race wheel.
The new advanced SHAMAL ULTRA C17 represents the same fantastic performance that has made it THE go-to aluminium race wheel for the better part of two decades while adding more versatility and performance.
The Grand Prix 4000S was the reference tyre in the road market but now gets a facelift. 4000S II gets a Vectran breaker for unsurpassed puncture protection and Continentals advanced BlackChili compound for lower rolling resistance and increased grip.
This tyre compound sits at the highest level of MTB rubber tyre compounds. Featuring the perfect balance between speed, grip and lifespan while far exceeding what other brands and models on the market can offer in terms of performance.
Vectran is a synthetically manufactured high-tech fibre from a natural model. Like spider silk, Vectran is a liquid-crystalline polymer (LCP). Vectran is spun from melted liquid polymer Vectra and processed further to a multi-strand thread. Spider silk, like Vectran, has an enormous tear resistance at a very low weight – exactly the right properties to process into a premium Continental bike tyre as a puncture protection insert. A Vectran Breaker is lighter, more flexible and protects more effectively against cuts than the comparable nylon breaker. Vectran Breaker does not adversely affect the rolling resistance.
