2015 Campagnolo Bora One 35 Clincher Wheelset

Product Description

General Information

If you ride Campagnolo, it is likely you made an active decision to do so. Campy has largely eschewed the OE spec market, which means that each customer has had to choose to equip a bike with Campy parts. Even if marketing nous might consider this a missed opportunity to grab new and unsuspecting customers, Campagnolo continues with their design efforts in the confident knowledge that they were designing for true lovers and aficionados of the brand and sport. Enter the Campagnolo Bora One 35 Clincher Wheelset, which will continually reward you for your choice.

The Bora family has long been the hallmark of high-quality, innovative wheelsets in the Campagnolo universe. But if you wanted to go the clincher route, you often had to look at some of the mid-range wheelsets. Campy recognizes that not everyone is willing to take the time to glue wheels, or pay some shop mechanic to do it. And how often can we call a relative or friend for a ride home after an irreparable flat before we relent and let go of the tubulars as training wheels? With the Campy Bora One 35 Clincher Wheelset, you can get the top level R&D while still enjoying the convenience and practicality of a clincher. And the 35mm rim depth will hit that sweet spot between shallow-dish climbing wheels and deep aero 50mm rims. You’ll get the lightweight and aero performance that makes these equally amazing as daily runners and race day hoops.

Though most wheel companies by now have carbon clincher rims, it doesn’t necessarily follow that everyone has figured out how to do them well. The sticking point is typically the brake track. Carbon braking surfaces are notoriously fickle; then add the strength versus heat dissipation qualities required for a safe alpine descent, and you’d often end up with some unfortunately heavy wheels that still didn’t brake all that amazingly well. Campagnolo has addressed this conundrum by developing what they call their 3Diamant technology. What this means is that the surface of the brake track has been treated using advanced machinery and a diamond tipped tool in order to eliminate the imperfections on the surface of the track caused by imperceivable resin deposits. Combining this braking surface with the high-performance brake pads specifically made for Campagnolo carbon wheels at the Campy Tech Lab, and you’ll enjoy a near perfect braking performance whether you are dealing with wet or dry conditions. The smooth overall braking effect will encourage you to push your descending skills to the next level.

If we’re talking about the brake-horse-power of the Bora Ones, we need to point out how Campy makes the rims so stiff and responsive. They have used a method that they call G3 Technology. By fitting twice as many spokes on the right hand side of the rear wheel compared to the left hand, or non-drive train side, Campagnolo has made it possible to improve energy transfer, reduce the stress on the right side spokes, and increase lateral rigidity. Not only will you get better transfer of the driving torque, but this design eliminates wheel vibrations, even for heavier riders. In fact, Campagnolo has a weight limit set at a generous 240 pounds. That’s due to the tangential lacing Campagnolo has given the spokes, controlling the spoke tension even under stressed load through the three by three grouping of the spokes. Then the oversize flange allows the increase of the torsional stiffness values even more, which benefits the overall responsiveness of the wheel. The wheels also receive the Dynamic Balance treatment, which means that Campagnolo has been very systematic in how they align the carbon fabric in order to increase the strength and keep the rims in perfect balance. This care and attention to detail is also what makes the Boras among the most beautiful looking wheels in the world.

Recognizing that both pros and weekend warriors appreciate the comfort and durability that wider tires offer, Campagnolo has increased the rim width for the Boras to 24.2mm. That means that they can accommodate wider tires without having that “light bulb” effect. Wider tires not only offer better road vibration absorption, but will give you better traction and more confidence when raging down your favorite descent. The 21 spokes with the 3G lacing in the rear is accompanied with sixteen radially-laced spokes in the front. That keeps the weight down and the strength up. With the front wheel weighing just 600 grams and the rear wheel lightly tipping the scale at 805 grams, the Bora One 35 clinchers offer an excellent weight to durability ratio. And even if you ride Shimano or SRAM components, don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t mix those with Campy wheels. Just get the right freewheel body and you can enjoy the anarchic feeling of forcing the two component powerhouses into a warm, performance-enhancing handshake. The Bora One is compatible with 9-, 10-, and 11-speed drivetrains.

The Campagnolo Bora One 35 Clincher Wheelset will give you the type of high-level performance that the pros enjoy while keeping everything decidedly more user-friendly. Campagnolo recommends using their specially developed brake pads for best stopping results. The wheels come with the pads as well as quick releases, tire levers, and wheel bags.
