As used by Ribble Pro Cycling for the 2018 season, the front WideBoy TT wheel is intended to be combined with our WideBoy disc wheels to create the ultimate aero wheel set. This wheel is the ultimate in our current development, giving a 26.5 wide carbon rim. A full UD carbon rim with excellent handing capabilities. Utilising the feed back from our independent testers that the tubeless clincher rim offers an advantage over standard tubed clinchers. The rim has a braking surface which is bonded into the surface of the carbon and is heat resistant to 200 degrees Celsius).
Walker Brothers “WideBoy” range wheel sets have an extra wide 28mm braking surface width which widens out to a maximum of almost 30mm. They have an angled 4 degree braking surface and when fitted with 25mm tyres gives an excellent aero profile of tyre and rim combined.
The “WideBoy” wheel sets are targeted more for road bikes as there may be clearance issues with some TT frames that have limited brake caliper adjustment. If purchased for TT frames the clearance should be checked before purchase.
