NS 88 [SET]
THE RACE MULTITOOL
Serious about aerodynamic performance. Improvements are increasingly noticeable at this wheel depth.
With an increased profile, the NS88 Front generally provides for stiffer riding and makes it easier to hold top speed when you’re riding flat out.
Rider confidence is key though -a front wheel this deep will catch front winds. When a front 88 is paired with the ultimate race companion, the NS Disc, this is (together with the Tri-spoke) the biggest aerodynamic advantage you can give your setup. This set up is not recommended for climbers and decenders -it’s a straight line weapon only. Most often seen on time trial, and long distance triathlon set ups.
Every component in the NS-Road line design has been carefully evaluated on its ability to absorb impact and vibration, minimise overall weight and deliver great gains in aero efficiency. As a result, responsive-stiff-lightweight wheels are now accessible to all of us. We challenged status quo and did the unthinkable: increasing both performance and affordability.
// Excellent cross wind performance
// Aerodynamic boost, free speed for the du/triathletes and road racers
// Reduced vibration, increased impact absorption, more stable, better control
// Lightweight, same effort takes you further
// Faster acceleration and ability to hold top speed longer.
