The debate over discs for cross has long covered the fact that the pros in Europe didn’t want them – well whether he wanted them or not, Sven Nys is making the switch. Shimano recently posted these photos of Nys’ new Colnago Prestige disc being built up for this weekend’s race. Nys will be running Shimano’s new R785 Di2/hydraulic disc brakes with (we’re assuming) a Dura Ace drivetrain.
The wheels that are shown though, we’re not quite sure what they are. Check them out after the break.
