The Shamal Ultra C17 Front Road Wheel design represents somewhat of a cornerstone in fine performance wheelworks and as such it has been at the forefront of innovation since its inception over 20 years ago.
Unmatched Efficiency and Performance
The very first complete wheelset with each component in its build being specifically designed as a complete unit to ensure unparalleled efficiency and performance the Shamal continued to introduce new technologies that would change the way aluminium performance wheels were produced. So advanced was the Shamal in its early stages that it was found also in World Tour competition often and to this day is still perhaps the most race-ready aluminium wheelset available.
Campagnolo wheels are hand built entirely by specialist Campagnolo wheel builders and are fine-tuned and checked precisely with electronic tools. The ensures that every wheel delivers the high-performance output that Campagnolo wheels are known for.
This wheelset features the Campagnolo iconic, performance-enhancing Mega-G3 spoke lacing pattern. This spoke pattern improves energy between the rider and the road, which reduces stresses on the drive side (right side) of the wheel while increasing the rigidity of the wheel overall at the same time. This significant performance enhancement is achieved by the drive side of the rear wheels having twice as many spokes as the non-drive side (left side).
