Even the youngest in the Bora family transforms in the new 2015 version: 24.2 mm wide, 35 mm tall rim, water transfer graphics, braking track with 3Diamant treatment, radial spokes on the front wheel and G3 on the rear, external nipples, hubs in aluminum with differentiated front and rear diameters with new adjustment ring, ceramic USB bearings, aluminum freewheel bodies and aerodynamic quick release are just some of the strong points that are diffcult to fully appreciate until you use the tubular Bora one 35 in challenges against regular adversaries or the clincher version in those with training companions.
NEW FULL-CARBON RIM, 24.2 MM WIDE, CLINCHERS: great comfort and maximum aerodynamics for interacting with new tire standards. Extremely high lateral wheel stiffness and reactivity.
3DIAMANT - BRAKE SURFACE TREATMENT: using advanced machinery and state of the art diamond tipped precision tools, eliminates imperfections. This new process eliminates the "breaking-in" period, improves braking performance under both wet and dry conditions and creates a more linear and smooth overall braking performance.
BRAKE PADS MADE ESPECIALLY FOR CARBON WHEELS
DYNAMIC BALANCING ON THE RIM
SPOKES ANTI-ROTATION SYSTEM: allows the spokes to maintain the best aerodynamic position.
EXCLUSIVE G3 SPOKE PATTERN: perfect balance of the spoke tensions on both sides of the wheel. Reduces stress, increases transversal rigidity and the transmission of power to the wheel. G3 eliminates vibrations even with "heavy" cyclists.
SPOKES WITH AERODYNAMIC PROFILE
SELF-LOCKING ALUMINUM NIPPLES
OVERSIZED FLANGE: greater torsional stiffness and greater reactivity.
CUP AND CONE BEARINGS: easy bearing adjustment - reduces possiblebearing play - precision operation - maintains performance over time.
USB CERAMIC BALL BEARINGS: reduces friction, provides greater smoothness, and maintains performance over time.
Take a look at Cyclist Magazine's review of the Campagnolo Bora
Campagnolo has employed its engineering resources to further improve the already impressive braking performance of its full carbon wheel systems.
Having already researched, designed and produced internally high-performance brake pads specifically made for Campagnolo carbon wheels, the Campy Tech Lab set its sights on perfecting the braking surface.
To ensure optimum performance in all conditions as a complete braking system, the brake pads would function even better with an improved braking surface.
The outcome of this research produced the new 3Diamant surface treatment which, using advanced machinery and state of the art diamond tipped precision tools, eliminates imperfections caused by non-homogenous resin deposits and allows the brake pad to work directly atop specially woven carbon fibers.
This new process eliminates the "breaking-in" period, improves braking performance under both wet and dry conditions and creates a more linear and smooth overall braking performance.
Campagnolo has developed an assembly architecture which, compared with a traditional wheel, makes it possible to improve energy transfer, reduce the stress on the spokes on the right and increase transverse rigidity.This is achieved because in G3 geometry the right-hand side of the rear wheel is fitted with twice as many spokes as the left.
The results of G3 system are truly extraordinary: better transfer of the driving torque, better lateral rigidity, reduction of the stress in the rear wheel spokes. And thanks to the G3 system that compensates for the forces acting on the 2 sides of the wheel, there are no more wheel vibrations, even for heavier people.
RIM Dynamic Balance – Carbon wheels
For carbon wheels the principle is the same, but applied using a different technology. When making carbon rims, the pieces of carbon
fabric are aligned in such a manner that the resulting rim is always balanced.
