Elitewheels BWT RXL 45mm 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 aerodynamic. 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 RXL45’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.
Elitewheels BWT RXL 45mm Brake surface
BWT RXL45 brake surface uses a mixture of 270 degrees celsius high temperature resin and T800 material, perfect for long descents. It also features a grooved brake track allowing for improved braking performance, making descending and city riding much safer in wet conditions delivering similar performance to wheels with aluminum brake tracks.
Elitewheels BWT RXL 45mm Hub
The 78mm flange spacing in the front hub give the front wheel exceptional balance at high speeds giving the rider better control while cornering.
The rear hub design incorporates a 74mm, large diameter hub flange. This combined with Elitewheels’ CHA(Customized Spoke Hole Angle) drilling technology allows the wheel to be very stiff, both laterally and torsionally for greater power transfer.
Elitewheels BWT RXL 45mm Transmission system
The BWT RXL freebody uses ceramic bearings and features 6 pawls, separated into two groups of three to speed up engagement. This amounts to a total of 72 points of engagement. This makes for better durability, as well as faster acceleration out of corners and an improved ability to transfer power.
Elitewheels BWT RXL 45mm Rims Type
BWT wheels make use of Elitewheels’ TRD (Tubeless R-angle Design). This design uses rounded edges to allow for effortless tire installation. All of our rims are tubeless compatible.
