Product Description

GENERAL INFORMATION

When you want a front wheel for your track bike, you want one with flawless aerodynamics and no lateral movement. Those are the reasons PRO built this 5-Spoke Track Tubular Front Wheel. PRO might seem like a new company, but it’s an arm of Shimano and benefits from Shimano’s know-how.

The wheel is molded from carbon-fiber, covered on the outside with a 3k twill carbon-fiber cloth and coated with a clear, matte finish. At the center is a Shimano Dura-Ace 7600 track hub. The five spokes are molded wings, shaped like airfoils. They cut through the air and smooth it out as the wind passes over them. They also have he benefit of adding lateral rigidity to the system. Having a laterally stiff front wheel is important when shooting tiny gaps through the turns, as any unwanted flex results in added attention paid to piloting your rig, which is enough to give you pause if not slow you outright. The spokes  are designed to be directional, and which side goes forward is marked on the wheel.

The rim is 65mm deep and 19.7mm wide. They recommend 24mm wide tires. You’ll need to source a valve extender that incorporates your tire’s valve stem and reaches beyond 65mm. The wheel weighs 1015g.

The PRO Carbon 5-Spoke Track Tubular Front Wheel comes with axle nuts and a wheel bag.
