Campagnolo has unveiled its latest carbon wheelset called the Bora WTO 33, offering roadies both a rim and disc brake version in what the iconic Italian brand is calling its “truly multi-purpose wheel”.
As its name implies, the new Bora WTO 33 features a rim profile that’s 33mm deep, along with an internal width of 19mm, that’s been optimized for 25mm tires, but will allow for tires up to 28mm.
“This profile is a further option when we have to adapt to the different kinds of terrain we tackle over a season. I pedaled for a good many kilometers on it and have to say that it is a really versatile wheel,” says UAE Team Emirates’ rider Marco Marcato, who will debut the wheel during this month’s Tour Down Under. “Its lighter weight is yet further added value and I can’t wait to try it out in a race, too!”
Additionally, there’s also a tubeless version of the Bora WTO 33 being offered as well, which utilizes Campagnolo’s 2-Way Fit technology, while the hubs feature USB ceramic bearings and company’s G3 spoke lacing pattern with elliptical straight spokes.
The rim brake version also gets Campagnolo’s AC3 textured brake track technology to ensure optimal braking under all riding conditions – especially in the wet.
According to Campagnolo, the rim brake version weighs in at an impressive 1395g, while its disc brake counterpart tips the scales at 1485g.
Both wheelsets have a weight restriction of 265 pounds (120kg) for rider and bike.
The cost of the wheelset is €2,160, with pricing for the US market to be announced.
