3T Discus C35 Pro Clincher Wheelset

Product Description

General Information

3T has invested heavily in disc brake wheels and their Discus C35 Pro Wheelset shows the smarts of their design.

They start with the rim. The aluminum-alloy clincher rim is tough, light, aero. The width is 24.6mm at the top by the tire bed and it expands slightly over the course of its 32mm depth to 25.6mm on the spoke side. The width, which is optimized for tires 23mm and wider (don’t put on narrower tires) gives you a nice double-U shape with 23-25mm tires, meaning the leading and trailing edges are nearly identical. That helps with aerodynamics. What you can’t see from the outside is how the rim walls are actually asymmetric, putting more meat on the left side where the rims are drilled for spoke holes. Asymmetric spoking also helps minimize tension difference between the left- and right-side of dished wheels, which improves strength and durability. Then, they went a good bit farther. They employ double-angle drilling, which means that the holes are set both for the radial and tangent angles, creating a straighter line from the hub flanges to the rim. The alloy nipples are set internally for greater rim strength and they rest on washers that add strength to the rim and make it easy to tension if you ever knock the rim out of true.

The greater rim width benefits you beyond aerodynamics. The greater air volume reduces rolling resistance and increases comfort for a given pressure and means you can even lower pressure and see both rolling resistance and comfort improve.

The triple-butted round spokes, 24 front and rear, crossed-two, lead to flanges designed for straight-pull spokes. Below the spokes is a convertible axle system. There are pinch bolts on the end caps. These can be loosened and the caps removed so you can chose between a quick-release axle and a thru-axle. This is for both front and rear hubs, with the front width the standard 100mm, swapping to either a 12 or 15mm thru-axle, and the rear width 135mm, allowing you to choose between a standard quick release or a 135x12mm or 142x12mm thru axle. All necessary end caps, axles, and quick releases are included.

The disc rotor, and you’ll need one for each hub, mounts to the hub via Centerlock-style splines.

The standard cassette body is a Shimano/SRAM-compatible 10/11-speed spline. A 9/10/11-speed Campagnolo-compatible cassette body is available as an aftermarket option. The set also comes with rim strips.

The 3T Discus C35 Pro Wheelset is the entry-level disc-brake hoop set from 3T. It’s versatile, being tough enough for cyclocross, and aero enough for road racing.
