VINTAGE BICYCLES WOODEN RIMS
UNIQUE have been used by real masters in road and track racing
VICTORIES these wooden rims have raced and won cycling races
VINTAGE these wooden rims, partecipated in cycling races in the late ‘40 ies
SMOOTHNESS you “will feel” it also an asphalt road
HIGH STABILITY AND LONG LIFE time through the use of very strong woods such as ash and hickory
AERODYNAMICS ovaloid teardrop shape is designed to penetrate and overcome the friction of the air
HIGH-IMPACT RESISTANCE through increased elasticity of its molecular structure
PERFECT ADHERENCE WOOD RIM-TUBULAR sealing between the wood rim and the tubular is better and more homogeneous. The wood is a poor conductor of heat. In descents roads requiring prolonged use of the brakes, the braking friction generates a huge amount of heat. In wood rims, differently from metal ones, heating is not transmitted by conduction to the paste sealing the tubular to the rim. The maximum tubular hold contact surface is always guaranteed under any possible condition.
HIGH QUALITY BRAKING the friction between wood rim and pads is higher and the effectiveness of braking is improved.
RESTORATION the wooden rims Hickory are ideal for restoration of vintage race bikes from end of 30′ ies until beginning of 90′ ies.
The experience of those who practice cycling, shows that impacts, expecially if unexpected, overstress wrists, elbows, shoulders and spine.
The characteristics of this CB Italia wooden rims limit the transmission of impacts and reduce detrimental action significantly .
