Campagnolo Ghibli Track wheelsets - clincher

5/5 (1 Reviews)

Product Description

Ghibli – is the "no-compromise" competition wheel by definition. It is designed to offer the highest possible performance obtainable within the limits of current technology. Considered "number one" by professional riders and triathlon specialists around the world. Now, this year the road-racing version is 100 g lighter thanks to its new oversize hub based on the Record series. With the axle in light alloy, it further improves the already extraordinary stiffness of the wheel.

Strengths:    Light; sexy; engineering marvel; rare.

Weaknesses:    Seam on rim not as clean as a Mavic; for the money your spend, they could've thrown in an elbow to help you inflate the tire; for the money, you could house and feed a family for 4 for months.

Bottom Line:   
The first thing that amazed me when I got the wheel was the fact that it's hollow. Between the two layers, there's nothing in the middle -- no honeycomb, fibreglass -- nothing. You think, how the hell does it maintain tension? It's the aerospace material used to build it and how they lay it up. If Ulrich can use it, rider weight obviously isn't an issue. At 995 grams, it competes with the Zipp disk. Plus, if you're like me and don't want what most other people have (ie. Zipps are common at tri's in Ontario), the Ghibli is perfect. Nice and true so far. The cassette that comes with it is a special Record ti 9 speed cassette with 10 gear spacing.
