While the focus of the Racing 4 centers on aerodynamics, the Racing 5 looks to keep weight low and stability high in the event of cross winds. A lower profile rim measuring just 24.5mm front and 27.5mm rear in depth not only makes for increased stability and lower rotational mass but also reduces weight to a scant 1650gr for the pair. Lighter than the previous version by the same name.
The Racing 5 DB tend to be more of a climber’s wheel that is ready to perform over any course. Straight pull spokes, disc specific hub and a 2-Way Fit Ready™ construction make for a sophisticated wheel in its own right that caters to climbers but is a perfect all around wheel forany athlete, road or cross as he or she may prefer.
