About Campagnolo Bora Ultra 50 Clincher Wheelset - Dark

The elite technology of Campagnolo's Bora Ultra 50 Wheelset is now available in a convenient clincher version. Superior braking, balance and rigidity in a wheel that is both aero and low weight.

Innovating the wheel that for years has been a market benchmark might have seemed diffcult and risky, but the Campy Tech Lab designers have managed to maintain those characteristics of fexibility and ease of handling that have made this high-profle wheel easy to steer, high performing and safe. 
The new Bora Ultra 50 bursts onto the market not only with introduction of the new wheel dedicated to the clincher, but also with improvements to the previous version in terms of lightness, aerodynamics, stiffness and comfort thanks to use of the new wider rim and front and rear hubs with different diameters. 
Plus extremely clean-cut aesthetics guaranteed by innovative water transfer graphics. all without giving up on the extreme smoothness, which has become the market benchmark and is the result of use of CULT bearings.
The Bora Ultra 50 wheel is entirely hand-assembled by a specialised Campagnolo technician and is checked in every tiny detail with electronic instrumentation.
This ensures maximum performance and reliability for all Campagnolo wheels.
Features
NEW FULL-CARBON RIM, 24.2 MM WIDE, FOR TUBULARS AND CLINCHERS: great comfort and maximum aerodynamics for interacting with new tire standards. Extremely high lateral wheel stiffness and reactivity.
3DIAMANT - BRAKE SURFACE TREATMENT: this 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.
EXCLUSIVE RIM PRINTING SYSTEM: rim painting no longer required. The weight is greatly reduced and the surface is free from imperfections.
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.
RDB RIM DYNAMIC BALANCE: exclusive system that assures perfect balancing of the rim even at high speeds. Moulded into the rim itself.
NEW BRAKE PADS MADE ESPECIALLY FOR CARBON WHEELS: the new blend increases the brake performance by about 40% on wet surfaces and 20% on dry surfaces without increasing the wear and tear on the pad. For a more modular and more secure stop..SPOKES WITH AERODYNAMIC PROFILE: provides the maximum aerodynamic penetration. Reduces aerodynamic drag saving rider energy.
CARBON FIBRE HUB: provides a high degree of lateral stiffness and reduces weight to the minimum.
OVERSIZED FLANGE: greater torsional stiffness and greater reactivity.
CUP AND CONE BEARINGS: easy ball/bearing adjustment - reduces possible ball/bearing play - precision operation - maintains performance over time
CULT: the combination of the highest quality ceramic bearings with housing in special Cronitect steel. Nine times smoother than the standard system. Eliminates oxidation and maintains performance over time.
ALUMINIUM AXLE: reduces the weight of the wheel.
QUICK RELEASE: new, completely redesigned and lighter aerodynamic-profile wheel block. Steel spine and eccentric, lever with drill lightening and aluminum die.

Technology
3DIAMANT
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.
CULT - CERAMIC ULTIMATE LEVEL TECHNOLOGY
TO UNDERSTAND WHAT CULT IS ALL ABOUT AND WHAT ADVANTAGES IT OFFERS IN TERMS OF THE PERFORMANCE OF THE WHEELS AND CRANKSETS THAT APPLY THIS TECHNOLOGY, THERE'S ONLY ONE THING TO DO: TRY IT!
We could describe it, praise its performance features, and give you the technical specifications, but it's impossible to transmit the real sensations and the differences you can perceive right from the first pedal rotation with wheels and cranksets bearing the CULT name.
But in any case, Campagnolo wants to illustrate the exceptional results shown by the products using CULT technology during the tests carried out by the Campy Tech Lab engineers.
CULT is the combination of the highest quality ceramic ball bearings available on the market and races made of Cronitect chromium stainless steel, i.e. the technological wonder made by the German company Schaeffler.
Ceramic ball bearings make it possible to reduce friction to the minimum and maintain consistent performance over time; bearing races made of Cronitect with thermochemical surface treatment make the sliding surface of the bearings extremely hard and resistant to wear.
But that's not all. Friction of the wheel and crankset is extremely reduced thanks to the minimal lubrication system required by CULT: only a thin film of oil in the place of the grease traditionally used.
THE RESULTS FROM THE CAMPY TECH LAB
9 times smoother than the standard solutions
Zero wear on bearings and balls
riction coefficient: the lowest in the world of cranksets thanks to lubrication with oil instead of grease
3.5 watts more power at each pedal stroke, increasing along with the increase in speed
G3 GEOMETRY
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.
In the 2012 range the Shamal and Eurus wheels increase their responsiveness specifically thanks to this system. G3 becomes Mega-G3 thanks to the oversize flange. This solution allows the increase of the torsional stiffness values even more, to the benefit of the overall responsiveness of the wheel.
DYNAMIC BALANCE 
RIM Dynamic Balance – Aluminium wheels.
The concept is simple and elegant: balance the weight of the gasket, with an item of similar weight placed on the exact opposite side. For top models, this is obtained by a special operation on the section of the rim opposite the rim joint.
SPOKES Dynamic Balance
For entry-level models, Dynamic Balance™ is obtained by using two oversized spokes in the section opposite the joint. The result is a wheel with perfectly balanced rotational dynamics.
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.
