While most will recognize the tubular wheels as the go-to choice for top professional riders, the fact remains that tubular tyres are less practical than clinchers for those of us not fortunate enough to have a support car with spare wheels following behind. Now, thanks to some diligent work by Campagnolo engineers, there will be no more reason to sacrifice performance for tyre security as the Bora wheel family is now available in clincher version in addition to the tubular version seen in the pro-tour.
The new wider structure also represents an increase in structural strength, thus rendering the already universally lauded resistance and reliability of the Bora even more adept at handling any course or condition that presents itself on race day.The graphic application was also studied and a new method was utilized which allows Campagnolo to apply the logos via water transfer thus avoiding heavier adhesives. This too represents a weight savings of nearly 15 grams in addition to a cleaner and more durable aesthetic quality.
Weight is further reduced thanks to a smaller profile front hub applied to this new Bora design. Campagnolo engineers were able to reduce the weight and size of the hub while maintaining all of the performance characteristics of the previous version. In other words, the same fantastic Bora performance in a smaller package.
CULT Ceramic bearings 9 times more efficient that standard bearings, they will spin for up to 47 minutes after being run at 500rpms.
FEATURES AND BENEFITS
FULL CARBON HIGH PROFILE for 35mm CLINCHER: provides the maximum aerodynamic penetration. Extremely limited weight. The highest degree of lateral stiffness and reactivity of the wheel.
EXCLUSIVE RIM PRINTING SYSTEM: rim painting no longer required. The weight is greatly reduced and the surface is free from imperfections.
RDB™ RIM DYNAMIC BALANCE: exclusive system that assures perfect balancing of the rim even at high speeds. Moulded into the rim itself.
NEW 3 DIAMANT TREATMENT: This treatment improves carbon braking performance to the point of feeling similar to aluminium in all conditions.
SPOKES WITH AERODYNAMIC PROFILE: provides the maximum aerodynamic penetration. Reduces aerodynamic drag saving rider energy.
SPOKES ANTI-ROTATION SYSTEM: allows the spokes to maintain the best aerodynamic position.
CARBON FIBRE HUB: provides a high degree of lateral stiffness and reduces weight to the minimum.
OVERSIZED FLANGE: greater torsional stiffness and greater reactivity.
CUP AND CONE BEARINGS: easy ball/bearing adjustment - reduces possible ball/bearing play - precision operation - maintains performance over time.
ALUMINIUM AXLE: reduces the weight of the wheel.
QUICK RELEASE: new, completely redesigned and lighter aerodynamic-profile wheel block. Steel spine and eccentric, lever with drill lightening and aluminium die. Eccentric-closure system allows cyclist to modulate the pressure necessary for heightened sensitivity to find the proper closure for the block. Easy to use, with a material resistant to wear and tear, rust, and pressure.

super sick. theyve changed my game. it'll take some getting used to. ive almost got bucked off like a rodeo cowboy in middle steepness s-turn stuff, cuz the wheels are so quick to respond. the hubs are amazing and accelerate lightning fast. plus they hold speed. im not quite as confident with them yet in terms of high speed railing/handling. they do great into the wind, but tbh i definitely feel affected in gusty crosses. Not the free climbing speed i was hoping for, but i have set 7 or 8 signiificant prs in my first 4 rides. up and down. the sound is unreal. and the feeling/resonance of the hubs spinning fast is dreamy. plus when the rim cuts the air right the whole thing is subtly vibrating. highly recommend go ceramic!
Order was delayed a bit, compounded by my bike build waiting only for them, and my impatience/excitement. But they came a few days late and were worth the wait. Great wheels. Light, stiff and great in the crosswinds. I had Bora One 50s previously and loved those, but ceramic bearings on the Ultra's are noticeable. And awesome.
CULT on bora ultra is really amazing, so smooth and more speed in every effort.
Great wheels! frustrating that ProBikeKit put them on sale about 7 days after my purchase and would NOT honor the sale price. bad customer relations choice.
These are absolutely amazing. What I didn't expect was the way they absorb the road shock. It felt like they had repaved the roads on the first ride.
These wheels are fantastic. They spin up quickly and roll with unparalleled smoothness, are less affected by wind than shallower rims and stop well even in the pouring rain. I would even say they rival aluminum rims in the wet conditions for their stopping power. These are fast wheels, faster even than my higher profile "racing wheel set", much quieter and with virtually instantaneous wheel lock up when transitioning from free wheeling to pedaling hard.
Love the wheels.got them in a reasonable amount of time. They are replacing my Zipp 404 wheels, feel faster, and go thru cross winds much better!
The wheels are shipped to US. Custom clearance is quick. No any duty is paid when the wheels arrive my house.
