Triathletes and time trialists alike will rejoice over FFWD’s latest RYOT77 wheelset, offering greater wind cheating capabilities thanks to a deeper rim profile and wider internal width that promises better aerodynamics and speed.
“Weather you’re a triathlete looking for a high profile set, a front wheel to combine with the DISC or a high profile rear wheel to combine with a lower profile front wheel (like RYOT55 or RYOT44). There’s a choice for all kinds of conditions or circumstances. A rim profile of 77mm proves to be the best in the balance in overall performance between aerodynamics and stability but with the ability to use no matter your body height or weight. So no matter if you’re a small or lightweight athlete, you will have full control of your bike. Especially when being in the aero position on a triathlon or time trial bike. With this height there’s even the possibility to use the RYOT77 as set in your road bike,” says FFWD.
The new RYOT77 utilizes the Dutch brand’s Laminar Airflow Wing (LAW) technology, which is designed to reduce drag in the name of speed.
“Developing a new standard in aerodynamic rim profiles lead to the introduction of our LAW Tech rims. Working from scratch with several computer models and windtunnel tests to compare and prove the results. Being a step ahead of the competition! That was the goal we had and which we successfully achieved. We first launches the new LAW Tech rims in the most popular models RYOT44 and RYOT55 but already knew there was a demand for an even higher rim. Triathletes and Time Trialists are searching for that optimal combination of front and rear wheel that will make the difference when every second counts. Knowing what is important in these categories we have developed a set that brings the best performance for a wide scope of intended use,” explains FFWD.
Additionally, the RYOT77 shares the same hooked tubeless-ready profile as the rest of the RYOT range that’s optimized for 25-28mm tires. But, the wheelset can also accommodate tires as narrow as 23mm and as wide as 42mm.
Other features that highlight the RYOT77 include a mix of 24 bladed, straight-pull Sapim CX Ray and CX Sprint spokes with brass nipples and FFWD’s new Two/One centerlock hubs with 12mm thru-axles and modular endcaps that are compatible with Shimano HG, SRAM XD-R and Campagnolo N3W freehubs bodies.
The RYOT77 is available as a wheelset with FFWD’s Two/One hubs for 1600€, which includes pre-installed tubeless tape, tubeless valves and padded wheelbags, while a second build option with the latest DT Swiss 240 EXP hubs will be available in September for 1900€.
Customer can also opt to purchase wheels individually as well.
