C41 carbon road wheels - the perfect balance. The C41 wheels feature the same 17.5mm inner/25mm outer width of the C29, but the rim depth extends to 41mm. The additional depth and the incorporation of Reynolds SLG™ technology, offer an added Aero advantage, while still maintaining a very competitive wheelset weight of only 1400 grams. The one size fits all option, the C41 is the perfect wheelset for everyday or race day. When weight and Aerodynamics are equally important this is the wheelset to choose –our version of the quiver killer. New for 2016 C41 offers tubeless compatibility. Available in a Tubular version as well.
New for the Torch series wheels is our 24 hole 2/1 lacing pattern found on all of our rear road wheels. This lacing pattern reduces wheel weight and promotes even spoke tensions, while maintaining excellent durability. Rear wheels feature 16 spokes on the rear drive side flange, paired with 8 opposing spokes. Due to the rear wheel dish caused by the cassette on the rear wheel, this orientation evens out spoke tension. It also reduces peak stress loads on the spokes and rim, as well as the fatigue cycle incurred in a traditional 24 spoke wheel - allowing a lower spoke count and lighter weight, without the durability issues and increased rim weights commonly associated with low spoke count wheels.
Torch series wheels also feature an updated the freehub and drive ring assembly. Our road wheels use the same drivering and pawls as the new Torch Moutain hubs, rated to withstand 700 ft/lbs of torque! However, we reduced the pawl count to 3 instead of 6, for lower drag and weight, while still achieving and industry leading (for road hubs) 6 degree engagement. Relocated bearings, and a new freehub seal reduce freehub drag while coasting.
As a final measure, Torch hubs now feature custom Teflon contact seals for the endcaps, which we manufacture in house. They fully seal the hubs from mud and water - tight enough for a muddy CX season, but smooth enough for drag-free road miles.
Carbon road wheels feature a 3 year warranty on hubs, spokes, and assembly, and a two year warranty on the rims - rims must be used with Reynolds Cyro-Blue brake pads to maintain the rim warranty.
