Gray Carbon Clincher 5.0
Gray 50mm Clincher wheels are handmade from high modulus carbon. The rims are designed for maximum aerodynamics, minimum weight, while retaining incredible structural strength. In fact, structural strength is the area our engineers have made our primary focus. It has allowed us to produce an extremely solid, strong and stiff rim that can handle a rider up to 240 lbs, while still maintaining extremely light weight. Gray 50mm Full Carbon Clincher is designed as a versatile training and racing wheel that offers the greatest all around aero dynamics when including all riding and weather conditions.
Ever since triathlons beginning, there has been a discussion on what the most aerodynamic and effective wheel combination is. There has been lots of misinformation in this area, so here is bottom line:
In flat, non windy conditions, a 95mm front and a disc rear is the fastest combination.
In slightly windy conditions, a 50mm or 95mm and 95mm rear is the fastest combination.
In more windy and /or hilly conditions, a 50mm front and disc or 95mm rear is the fastest combination.
In hilly and non windy conditions, the 40mm front and rear is a preferred wheel.
In conditions that are both windy and hilly, the 50mm front and rear is the preferred option.
