Campagnolo's Bora wheels are legendary and for good reason. Chosen by the sport's fastest riders, Bora wheelsets refuse to flinch when sprinting to the finish of a Grand Tour stage or when called upon to launch an attack on a lumpy Ardennes classic. If you've ever wanted to ride the same wheels as the pros but in a clincher appointment, look no further than the Bora One 50 Wheelset - Clincher. We can only think of a handful of wheelsets that have this much sex appeal and inject a dose of speed to your bike. With the Bora One 50, Campagnolo brings this proven rim design used on the Bora Ultra and laces it to hubs spinning on Ultra Smooth Bearing (USB) hubs versus the pricier Ceramic Ultimate Level Technology (CULT) bearings. Despite these differences in hubs, the Bora One 50 Wheelset is still called on during the rough and tumble spring classics such as Roubaix.The USB hub bodies are alloy instead of CULT's carbon, for an increase of about 50 grams. While we enjoy chasing grams as much as anyone, the money saved and the fact that the weight is centralized on the wheels, where it isn't as critical as further out, we'll take the tradeoff and have more money for race entries. Also, the USB has the same ceramic ball bearings as the CULT just without the Cronitect races. Even without the races, the USB bearings are a claimed 50% smoother than steel, which relates to more free speed on the open road.The latest Bora rims have plumped up to 24. 2 millimeters, up from a previous 20 millimeters. The wider rims help with a number of improvements including better handling and cornering, lower rolling resistance, and a smoother ride. The wider rim also achieves higher lateral stiffness and better aerodynamics while using today's broader tires. Larger tires help achieve a tubular-like ride with the convenience of mounting tires and the ability to change a flat on the side of the road. The width saves weight by letting Campagnolo build a more structurally sound rim with less m...
