Ridden under the auspices of team Bardiani-CSF-Faizané, Deda Elementi’s new RS4DB carbon wheelset was spotted during last week’s Giro d’Italia, showing-off a new rim profile that suggests the new hoops are designed for both climbing and wind cheating duties.
Indeed, the new RS4DB features a 38mm rim depth, striking an excellent balance between weight and aerodynamics performance, while a hooked, tubeless bead allows the wheelset to work with both clincher and tubeless tires.
Additionally, the RS4DB wheelset is fitted with Deda’s latest 7075 alloy straight-pull RS centerlock disc brake hubs, complete with a revamped shape and a rifled finish to further increase airflow, while ceramic bearings and new 20T ratchet internals ensure excellent engagement and smooth power-transfer.
Other features that highlight the wheels include a 24-spoke count for both front and rear, along with self-locking alloy nipples to prevent loosening, tipping the scales at an impressive 1340 grams.
The RS4DB wheelset sells for 1950€, which is available with freehubs that are compatible with Shimano, Campagnolo and SRAM XDR cassettes.
