Racing Speed XLR 80

The Racing SpeedTM XLR does not need an introduction: a name which has been long associated with countless victories and today becomes the wheel of reference for triathlon or road races. With 80 mm carbon rims are been developed with the precious indications of professional athletes. The result is extraordinary.
The CULT ball/bearing system is 9 times smoother than that of standard bearings and the aerodynamic design allows for top speed, acceleration and manoeuvrability even with cross winds!
Performances over the top! Available also in the Dark Label version.

The rim


High profiles for 80mm tubulars: enables the maximum aerodynamic penetration, reducing friction. The design of the profile details makes the wheel extremely manageable even in a crosswind. Exclusive pressing system for the rim in unpainted carbon enables an extremely limited weight and a smooth surface free from imperfections.

Hubs and flanges


CULT ceramic bearings, the maximum in terms of smoothness thanks to the use of special reduced lubricant bearings. The cone and cup technology with absolute performance: easy ball/bearing adjustment – reduces possible ball/bearing play – precision operation – maintains performance over time. 
Carbon hubs with oversize aluminum flange and Two-to-One™ technology to transmit all the power to the ground. Aluminum axle reduces the overall weight of the wheel.

Triathlon Racing Speed XLR 80 - Oversize flange

Oversize flange

Oversized flange on the drive side provides greater torsional stiffness, increasing reactivity at any change of the rhythm of the pedal stroke.

New brake pads made especially for carbon wheels

Aero spokes (16 front, 18 rear) in stainless steel with variable cross-section, doubled on the drive side
(Two-to-One).?Aerodynamic profile in steel ensures the maximum aerodynamic penetration and, thanks to the material employed, lower weight and greater reactivity. Aluminum nipples.
