The Bortola uses our Japanese EZO bearings to give you the smoothest of rides, with low rolling resistance. Using our patented spoke braces which effectively increase the size of the flange for better power transfer, meaning when you pedal the force created isn’t lost in the wheel and propels you forwards. We have used straight pull spokes to really keep the power transfer at a maximum. In 2017, we made a few small adjustments to make the wheel a little easier to work on. Look at the hub to determine if you have the 1.0 or 2.0.
The Bortola hubs are a direct descendent of the acclaimed Bracciano hubs. Light, fast, dependable and easy to work on. The new 2.0 version hubs are even easier to work on. Japanese EZO bearings keep the rolling resistance to a minimum and the straight-pull spokes keep the power transfer at maximum.
21MM PROFILE ALLOY RIM
The sleeved, low profile alloy rim of the Bortola A21W offers the perfect mix of low weight and strength. High strength-to-weight ratio 6061 alloy keeps the rim light and rotational mass low, for a snappy, featherweight feeling. We've even made it tubeless ready so you can get the most out of this amazing new wheelset.
The Bortola's sleeved, tubeless ready rims are perfectly suited to trying out a tubeless road setup. Simply insert and tighten the lock ring. You may wish to use a little sealant around the base for added leak-proofing.

3 rides so far around 300k and some hills and these are excellent. I run 28’s and was much more confident descending at high speeds. True, fast, light and look great on my rim braked Cayo. Highly recommended.
Put the Bortolas on a new road bike build, worked great with Shimano Ultegra 11-speed cassette. Clincher tires worked perfectly and the wheels were sealed from the spokes, so no rim tape needed. Only ridden about a two hundred miles, but so far so good.
