From now on, 50mm and 38mm new Aerodynamic shape wheels orders freely include 2pairs of SwissStop Yellow brake pads.

Kyle,

Any plans to offer aero shaped 50mm carbon wheels wider than 20.5mm?

Oumed, 50mm*25mm Aerodynamic shape have been launched for a while, these two items
are similar in shape.

Slightly off-topic but this has just been bugging me for a while... with zipp's toroidal FC shape and the chinese carbon manufacturers jumping onboard the U-shaped rims instead of V-shape... is there any indication that these not-quite-perfect-firecrest-copy U rims have an actual aerodynamic advantage over the old V shape rims? How do these rims compare to the real firecrest as well? Just curious.

You might want to read this thread: viewtopic.php?f=113&t=103936
It was discussed there - as well as what needs to happen to make the testing possible - as well as why a legitimate test might not ever happen.


@kyle

May I ask why you are offering Yellow brake pads instead of the blues? The Reynolds Blue pad is quite superior compared to the Yellow, from personal experience.
Any chance you would offer the SwissStop Black Prince instead?

Prendrefeu, this is our new trial selling solution for our new 38mm and 50mm clincher versions only.
Others keep the same as previous. Just upto client's demands.

Most of our clients use our blue pads included, be economic and practical. I am afraid some guys have different tastes in various pads, so we might do an investigation, adding other choices in the future.

I know this was asked before, but are the BlackPrince pads certified for your wheels/rims?

Hm, makes sense. Still, cant help but wonder. Do you think modeling wheels based on various rim xsections and running some CFD would give any sort of valuable info? I wouldnt be surprised if that was somewhat inaccurate due to tire details/tire-rim interaction details but surely it could provide at least some insight...? just a thought.

I wouldn't buy any rim today narrower than 22mm. Better 23 or 24.

these are light, sure, but considering how it has been demostrated that wider rims rides way better, and makes a 23 tire wider and safer, transmitting more confidence... so, what is the alternative? with a target weight of 420g maximum, please.

I've ridden wider wheels and I simply can't state that they feel "way better".......I can tell you what feels "way better" a 1200g wheelset vs a 1500g wheelset.

Sorry if this question is already answered, but why are there no prices on Far Sports website?

the literature is between the book that talks about tubulars been more comfortable that clinchers, and that other book that explains that a wider BB is stiffer, and a wider fork head tube is stiffer.

otherwise, get yourself a 15mm rim with a 20mm tubular, and you could write the literature to demostrate such an obvious thing yourself.
