Oval Concepts 733 Front Road Racing Wheel Black/White/Red 678g
Oval Concepts 733 premium road racing clincher front wheel with a TruVelo technology hub. The 733 and 724 wheelsets were featured in Bicycle Retailer back in June and here are some of the highlight quotes: "TruVelo is a Silicon Valley company that uses Finite Element Analysis software and rapid prototyping to optimize wheel designs" and "TruVelo's wheel technology sets new benchmarks for strength, weight, power transfer, precise cornering and ride quality. We wanted to give our customers uniquely high-specification wheels, combining modern wider designs, superb weight and great reliability". Moving on to the 733 aluminum clincher rim, it has an aerodynamic depth of 33mm and an outer width of 22mm. A 33mm depth is deep enough to reduce the amount of effort needed to cut through the wind but is shallow enough so that you will not feel the negative effects of a crosswind pushing you sideways on the road. The 22mm outer width offers you the ability to run lower tire pressures producing a more comfortable, stable ride that corners confidently while maintaining a low rolling resistance. The 733 front wheel will surprise you when you open the box and spin the wheels for the first time with silky smooth bearings. Finally the weight is highly competitive for a 33mm deep rim at 678g.
