Sentiinel migrates to wider width rim profiles
A wider tyre creates a better forming tyre profile and increased air volume, and actually simulates much of the shape that a tubular exhibits. This is where we start paying attention to the hype, as tubular benefits in a clincher format are noteworthy.
Wider tyres enable lower air pressure and ultimately reduces pinch flats commonly associated with the clincher design. It also enables a softer ride with better cornering and responsiveness, much like tubulars. Of late, most pro pelotons have widely adopted the 23mm design for the lower riding pressure and softer ride experience. The one stage classics like Paris Roubaix have even seen as wide as 28mm.
Now to the basalt braking surface – primarily, it offers a higher degree of heat resistance than carbon, as well as lower levels of friction. Together these features prolong the lifespan of the rim and ensures you’ll be able to enjoy your Sentiinel wheelset for longer.
We are excited to now offer these enhancements to our market!
