As a general rule, the deeper the wheel, the more aerodynamic it is and the faster it makes you. This is the deepest set of spoked wheels we make. Up front you'll find a 55 mm deep rim and bringing up the rear, a very deep 90 mm, making these one of the fastest wheelsets we make.
If you fight your bike for control, of course, you’ll never go fast and that’s why the front and rear wheels are different depths. A 90 mm deep wheel in front can be difficult to handle when winds kick up and you’re on your aero bars, so we pair the rear with a lower profile wheel in the front. This also knocks off some weight so this wheelset can be used even when the course is rolling.
To compliment the aerodynamics of the wheels, we use our Arsenal hubset, which is very small and makes the wheelset more aerodynamic so you can ride faster with less effort. These hubs come with our super smooth rolling TFT bearings to help you save a little bit more energy than standard bearings. We pair these rims and hubs with Sapim CX-RAY spokes that do a great job of reducing road buzz leaving you less fatigued.
These wheels are made to help you ride faster than you thought you could. By combining deep wheels, road buzz reducing construction, smooth rolling and small hubs with the speed and grip of tubular tyres, the T590 is perfect for triathletes or time trialists who want to win.
