In recent years Pacenti have been setting the standard for lightweight and reliable wheelsets. This best-selling option features their Forza rim which was one of the first designs to use a wider footprint to provide a better tyre profile, especially with the current trend for wider road tyres. The rim itself is made from lightweight 6061 aluminium with a low 25mm profile which builds into a strong & classic looking wheel. The front uses a symmetrical rim to go with the radial spoking while the rear uses an asymmetric design for strength. A machined braking surface ensures good stopping power.
The Pacenti hub uses high quality EZO sealed bearings for both low drag and maximum durability. No messing with cup & cone systems here. The freehub body is a neat aluminium model with Bite Guard to prevent cassettes digging into the splines - a real bonus for home mechanics and helps prolong the life of the wheel.
Sapim D-Light spokes complete the package and build into a light and reliable wheelset. The generous 20mm rim width works perfectly with a 25mm tyre and makes the Forza a great option for all types of road cycling. Run with inner tubes or instal a tubeless conversion kit to take advantage of the latest tubeless technology (tubeless kit sold separately).
The Forza make s a great upgrade for entry level road bikes, or a bombproof training wheel on higher end models. Whatever your ride, the Forza is a fantastic value road wheel that will put a real spring in your ride.
