普林斯顿碳结核含有创新的轰动唤醒6560道路轮,该特征是锯齿轮廓轮廓,概述了更深轮的航空效率以及较浅的横向稳定性。We’ve all heard that sort of thing before, of course, only in this case it seems to actually work — so much so that the Ineos-Grenadiers team has often been spotted using Princeton CarbonWorks front wheels in time trials for at least the past year.

显然,随着Ineos Star Tom Pidcock的短暂发布 - 然后删除了一些新的普林斯顿碳结构峰值4550轮峰的图像他的Instagram帐户

新轮子保留了特色波浪轮辋配置文件,并基于外表和公司的历史命名,它们具有较浅的45/50毫米差异型材,应该更适合大山脉。Princeton CarbonWorks declined to comment when I asked about the new wheels, but given the 1,437 g claimed weight of the current Wake 6560s (when built with Tune hubs), it’s possible that the Peak 4550s could be closer to 1,350g, or maybe even less.

当然,这仍然是来自Ultra-昂贵的轻质Meilenstein Obermeyer管子的户1公斤的远远令人哭泣,即ineos-grenadiers一直在盛大之旅中使用大型山区阶段。但是,如果普林斯顿碳结构可以合理地靠近重量,则任何剩余的赤字可能会抵消卓越的空气动力学和较低的滚动阻力。前者不应该难以做到轻量级的旧学校V形轮辋配置文件,并且已经有大量的测试数据证明了后者。

More weight could theoretically be saved if those Peak 4550s were tubulars, but Pidcock appeared to be riding on clinchers (a special “Pro LTD” version of Continental’s Grand Prix 5000 TL tubeless clinchers, in fact) and there’s little to suggest anything would change moving forward. Pidcock wasn’t racing in the images he shared, of course, but Princeton CarbonWorks doesn’t currently offer tubulars for any of its wheels, and even though it’s Ineos-Grenadiers we’re talking about here, it’s unlikely a company of Princeton CarbonWorks’s size would embark down the tubular path for what is ultimately an unofficial relationship (Shimano is the team’s official wheel sponsor, after all).

当您将所有这一部分联合在一起,近期将Pro Peloton的移动到Clinchers,以减少滚动阻力,这表明Ineos-Grenadiers可能至少考虑远离其长时间的管子,即使攀爬阶段也是如此。

这看起来很远吗?也许是,特别是考虑到SRAM目前起诉普林顿碳结构的专利侵权,这意味着如果在法庭上索赔,那么这些车轮甚至不存在。然后,也许ineos和普林斯顿碳结构知道我们没有的东西。

我们会很快找到。
