I just ordered a pair - I'll let ya'll know how they compare to the 2019 Zipp Firecrests and Roval CLX50s I have in the next few weeks.

At first they're going to go on the Enigma, but I might transfer them over to the Tarmac and set them uptubeless to increase the comfort. But we'll see...

Nicely done upgrade.
Except you’ve got the punch going in backwards in this pic below... the smaller tapered end should go in first, which will ensure the lip of the extractor stays in secure contact with the lip of the cups when you punch it out and that the force is nicely centered...

Hi guys !

Anyone has any idea if modern Colnago Master X-light is able to clear the Bora WTO 45 ( H x W): 45/26,5 mm ).
I only have information that the Master is able to clear 25mm tyre.

Ive seen the master with below wheelsets

- Bora Ultra 50 : 24.2mm width
- Lightweight Meilenstein : 20mm width

Thank you !

am looking forward to hear your opinion. I run CLX32 and looking to go for WTO 45. Roval's only bad point is wet weather braking. If the AC3 is proven to be much better then I might be willing to try the WTO even though it's around 200g weight gain.

One might think the Bora Ultra 35 or Bora One 35 compare better to the CLX32's?

Am looking to go deeper so that's the reason I won't be picking up the 35mm.

Does anyone know if they will be releasing deep section Bora WTO for Disc either 60 or 77 equivalent to the rim version?

I'm ordering a pair of the 45' disc s, but had a thought next year of poentially runnnng a deeper rear as well...

None at all from they've said already. They've tested tubeless to be faster.

A tubular version could be alot lighter but i think that they would have to completely re-design them if they wanted to get the same aero benefit because the profile of tubular tyres would be different.

Are there any shops that have WTO 45 disc wheels ready to ship? Having a hard time finding a set.

My lbs got me a set which I picked up this week with an XDR freehub on as well... but I think they deal direct with the distributor. Need to setup this weekend...
