Vittoria Qurano 46c Carbon Road Wheelset - Tubeless

In a carbon fiber wheel market saturated with a seemingly endless stream of near copycat designs and construction, it's refreshing to see Vittoria stepping up with an innovative approach bent on changing the way we look at carbon fiber layup. The Qurano 46c Carbon Road Tubeless Wheelset incorporates Vittoria's proprietary Graphene+ (G+) technology into the resin that binds the carbon fibers together for a wheelset that claims advantages in almost every category we care about: stiffness, braking, reliability, and comfort. The inclusion of G+ addresses what's proven to be the Achilles heel of carbon rim technology to date: heat buildup. Resin infused with G+ increases heat dissipation by a claimed 10%, which leads to more consistent braking power over time and less chance of heat-related catastrophic failures such as blown out tires and delaminated braking surfaces. The specter of Beloki tends to always be in the backs of our minds during long, twisty descents on carbon rims, so this added bit of reassurance goes a long way toward keeping our minds off of imminent calamity and on the road ahead. In addition to its heat dissipating prowess, G+ boasts a high mechanical strength for durability over rough roads and long miles. It also entails massive claims of a 50% increase in lateral stiffness compared to other compounds, which means lightning fast responsiveness during punchy efforts and razor sharp handling while testing your own limits on sweeping descents. And while most super stiff wheels come at the expense of comfort, G+ also increases radial flexibility to soak up road vibrations and provide a comfortable ride without sacrificing power transfer or that snappy feel. Vittoria fashions the Qurano 46c with a 42 and 46mm rim-depth combo, which is arguably the ideal dish for all-around riding and racing. It's deep enough to offer a marked aerodynamic advantage, shallow enough to snap up to speed off the line, and light enough to climb with the mountain goats wit...

October's Featured Park
Arches National Park is known for its' remarkable natural red sandstone arches. With over 2,000 catalogued arches that range in size from a three-foot opening, to Landscape Arch which measures 306 feet from base to base, the park offers the largest concentration of natural arches in the world.
October's Animal
Most commonly found in the tundra of Rocky Mountain National Park, the pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
