THE LIGHT, THE NIMBLE

The discerning choice -our lightest wheel provides for the greatest possible acceleration and best handling, delivering a very snappy take off feeling. The minimal depth profile keeps weight down and provides the most stability against cross winds.

Great in climbing scenarios and for the long distance riders. The shallower profile also reduces stiffness -more flexible, improving handling on rough roads and manoeuvring, a must in technical ascents and descents. This sizing is often chosen by many riders in long and technical courses such as at Tour de France.

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.

WHY?

// 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.
