BWT DISC45

(1 customer review)

The BWT DISC45 is a truly innovative wheelset. Due to it’s lightweight, stiffness, and aerodynamic properties, it is truly an all-rounder that is ideal for climbing, riding on the flats, as well as gravel riding.
The wheelset features an undulating rim, which ranges in depth from 42mm-45mm. The reason for using the undulating rim is to deliver an aerodynamic advantage using the Tubercle Effect, a phenomenon that that is found throughout nature. The undulating design also significantly improves stability in crosswinds, giving the rider more confidence while descending or riding in windy conditions. Due to the shape, it is 17% stiffer than an ordinary wheel of an equivalent rim depth.

– Disc Brake Wheelset
– Brake Interface: Center Lock by default(6-bolt is also available upon request when you place the order)

BWT DISC 45 Rims

BWT DISC 45 Rims

RIMS

BWT wheels use both genuine T800 and T1000 Toray carbon fiber. Both types of fibers have different properties and strengths. The number of layers, type of carbon fiber, location as well as their direction have all been carefully chosen. The result of this design and complex manufacture is an exceptionally strong and lightweight wheel.

BWT’s unique undulating rim design is specifically designed to be as aerodynamic as possible. Research on similar undulating designs that take advantage of the Tubercle Effect have a shown reductions in drag by as much as 40%. The design has another benefit, which is to reduce the effect of crosswinds, giving the wheelset increased stability. Riders can feel confident in windy conditions like never before. The BWT DISC45’s 28mm outer rim width reduces rolling resistance, as tires on a wider rim roll faster.

The rim’s outer width of 28mm can accomodate a variety of tires ranging from 700*23C to 700*33C.
