New - The ADR 3W (wide) is now available. Suitable for 25mm tyres to match the rim perfectly and gain from the benefits of less rolling resistance.
UPDATE - ADR3 BREAKS RECORDS!
The ADR 3 wheel was used to break the British competition record for 10 miles which now stands at 17:20 by Alex Dowsett (Movistar) and also the 25 mile record with 44:29.
WIND TUNNEL TESTING
We have tested the ADR3 wheel against the most famous 3 spoke on the market and at 0 degree yaw it tested 0.8w slower but at 5 degree yaw (More real life wind angle) it tested 2.6w faster. The best size tubular tyre to use on the ADR3 is 20mm according to the wind tunnel testing.
The 3 spoke design has been well documented to be the most aerodynamic wheel to use in the front of a time trial bicycle. It has been used by professionals at every level to gain those extra few seconds in the race of truth.
The ADR 3 is no exception. Based on the concept of the 3 spoke design, but engineered slightly differently to offer a slight taper in the centre of the spoke. This is to allow the wheel to handle better in crosswinds but still out perform other wheels in a straight line.
Our ADR 3 is the most versatile wheel in our range.
With its exceptional low rotational weight of 790 grams (Tubular)(840gm +/- 10g for clincher) – it will spin up to speed very quickly and hold its racing speed up any gradients. It is made from T700 Toray 3k carbon fibre, to be super strong out of the saddle as well as light and fast.
We use precision German bearings in the centre of the wheel and we guarantee you will not feel a smoother bearing, they just keep rolling!
Available in Matt or Gloss finish and they are for clinchers (Aluminium rim) Clincher version weight 840gms
The wheel is supplied without a wheel bag or quick release skewer.
Carbon specific brake pads must be used with the tubular version and are not supplied, normal brake blocks are suitable for the clincher version
