Campagnolo, amidstÃ‚Â swirling rumors that they are for sale / have been sold to Hello Kitty’s parent company Ã‚Â (which, BTW, we hear are patently untrue), announced today their totally redesigned and brand new Eurus road wheelsets.
The big news is the all-new 2-Way-Fit wheel with a rim that works with both clincher and road tubeless tires. Ã‚Â The model also gets new, lighter aluminum aero spokes (w/ aluminum nipples) for a wheelset that weighs in just under 1500g. Ã‚Â The 2-Way-Fit model will come in Black colorway only.
The Eurus Clincher wheels carry forward the name, but Campy says they’re basically a new wheelset. Ã‚Â New production procedures help them drop 115g from the previous version, putting them in at 1482 per set.
Hit ‘more’ for additional specs and big, awesome photos…
The 2010 Eurus Clincher will be available in either Silver or Black.
Besides the spoke patterns, the front and rear wheels differ in their rim profile. Ã‚Â Both are 20.5mm wide, but the front is 24mm tall while the rear is 28mm tall (30mm tall rear for the Eurus Clincher). Ã‚Â The rear wheel has 21 spokes, 14 on the drive side, 7 on the non-drive side. Ã‚Â The front wheel has 16 straight-pull spokes in a traditional pattern. All specs in the image above are the same for the Eurus Clincher except, obviously, for the 2-way-fit rim.
The wheels come with Campy’s Dual Pivot skewers.
