Product Description
58/TwentyFour Carbon Clincher Wheelset V2 by Profile Design
Long known for its aero bars and wind-cutting triathlon accessories, Profile Design has expanded its reach over the past few years to include aerodynamic carbon wheels. The 58/TwentyFour Carbon Clincher Wheelset combines Profile's long-established expertise in aerodynamics and reputation for durability to give any road or time trial bike a fast, smooth ride towards whatever finish line you choose. Profile collaborated with specialists in Computation Fluid Dynamics to analyze wind tunnel data and determine the best rim shape to achieve low drag and solid handling in crosswinds. To replicate real-world situations, the engineers even mapped out weather data from recent high-level cycling and triathlon events to recreate those wind conditions in the tunnel. The result of all this work is a wheel that isn't just fast in the virtual lab world--it's fast out on the pavement in real-world wind conditions too. The name tells you a lot about these wheels. The 58 references a 58-millimeter medium dish, aerodynamic rim with an external width of 24. 5-millimeters to straighten the tire's sidewalls for a plusher ride with less rolling resistance. The rim itself has a slightly curved side and rounded spoke-facing edge that manages the lateral force of crosswinds for better stability than traditional airfoil rims. Profile uses its own high Tg point resin on the carbon braking surface for a claimed 30-percent increase in heat capacity compared to other high Tg resins used in the industry for carbon braking surfaces. This means, in theory, these wheels have better, more consistent braking across changing conditions and long descents than the competition. Ultimately, you'll be able to stop when you need to, regardless of the weather or how long and fast a descent is. The other half of the name references Profile's TwentyFour Series hubs. They're made of forged and machined 6061-T6 aluminum for a durable, strong, and stiff hub body. The freehub is machined from 7001-T6 aluminum a...

Rising above a scene rich with extraordinary wildlife, pristine lakes, and alpine terrain, the Teton Range stands monument to the people who fought to protect it. These are mountains of the imagination. Mountains that led to the creation of Grand Teton National Park where you can explore over two hundred miles of trails, float the Snake River or enjoy the serenity of this remarkable place.
Featured Wildlife
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.
