Metron 40 Disc

WH-VT-840_DB

Ready for the new generation of disc brake-equipped road and cyclocross bikes, the Metron 40 Tubular Disc wheelset uses the same full carbon 40mm deep tubular rim section as the regular Metron 40. To cope with the forces generated by disc brakes, the Metron 40 Disc uses 24 J-bend spokes at the front and 28 at the rear, all bladed for aerodynamic efficiency. Lightweight alloy hubs run on sealed cartridge bearings for low friction and easy maintenance. Hand built attention to detail ensures durability.
