“Miura T45, born thanks to URSUS experience producing high-level wheels. Designed for mixed routes, this tubular wheel is a perfect mix of lightness and aerodynamics. Miura T45 allows excellent starts and spurts on mixed routes. The aerodynamic shape of the rim helps cyclist have their best performance on long straights. Miura T45 mounts a pair of carbon-aluminum URSUS hubs with lightness and reliability. The hub flanges are forged in AL 7075. These carbon-aluminum hubs were born from the development of MG, where the hubs are mounted with steel ball bearings SKF oversized high precision, reaching a smoothness that is unparalleled.”

They come accented in green, white and black. They’ll be available soon through Albabici. Details here. Click ‘more’ to check out the Hybrida alloy set and full Miura T45 specs…

“One of the most well-known Ursus products.  Hybrid mounts a pair of AL 7075 CNC forged hubs which are very light and reliable. These hubs are a direct expression of MG hubs, with SKF over-sized high-precision bearings which help to achieve a very low rolling resistance. From the comments collected during interviews with our professional teams, the main features of Hybrid are lightness, strong and smoothness. The rim is in light aluminum, and fits perfectly for all kind of circuits.”

$1000 for a set of 1565 gram aluminum clinchers? The T45 rims look similar to Corima.
