CAMPAGNOLO BORA ULTRA 35 TUBULAR WHEELSET

Campagnolo’s Bora Ultra 35 Tubular Wheelset is Campy’s lightest wheelset. These are the hoops Thomas De Gent opts for when he’s going on a day-long raid in the mountains. The wheels that Nairo Quintana has put in his bike when he’s setting up to attack the favorites in quest to gain the Pink, Yellow, and Red jerseys. The reason they love the wheels are they they’re not only feathery light, but also aero enough that they have an advantage when going fast as well.
The rims and spokes are identical to what you’ll find on the Bora ONE 35 Tubular. The changes are to the hubs and bearings. The carbon hub bodies help shave weight from the wheelset, and look good, but the far more important difference is found inside. Campy has installed their ceramic CULT bearings. These roll smoother and faster than standard steel bearings. This difference should be magnified thanks to the fact that Campagnolo relies on cup-and-cone bearing races, which can be faster than more popular pressed-in cartridge bearings.
The braking surface possesses Campy’s AC3 treatment, All Conditions Carbon Control, a texturing of the surface that improves stopping power in the wet and dry. Campy also includes brake pads for the Campagnolo/SRAM/Shimano brake shoe standard to ensure braking quality is high and consistent.
It is 35mm deep, with a 24.2mm external width. The depth is to make sure you’re getting an aero benefit in all conditions. The width is for wider tires. They’re assuming you’ll want to run 23-25mm wide tires for both the comfort and rolling resistance, but because these are tubulars, they’ll also work with 27mm Roubaix-ready tires and 33mm wide cyclocross knobbies. The shape is a modified airfoil and flattened for weight savings. The rim is also designed to come out of the box balanced for the valve stem of your tube. They call it RDB, Rim Dynamic Balance. This makes the wheel accelerate smoother and some believe reduces the wattage needed to power the wheels at a given speed.

Spokes are steel and bladed. The front has 18 radial spokes, while the rear utilizes 21 spokes in Campy’s G3 pattern. G3 is a two-to-one lacing system with two crossed spokes on the drive side paired with a single radial spoke on the left side. This better balances spoke tension between the left and right side and keeps the wheel strong.
Campy also includes their redesigned quick releases. To keep these as light and powerful as possible, they’ve combined a steel rod with a skeletal lever body and durable eccentric cam.
When purchasing the wheel, you need to specify whether you need a Campagnolo 9/10/11-speed cassette body or a SRAM/Shimano-compatible 9/10/11-speed cassette body. You also need to specify Bright Label or Dark Label, which is how the logos look.
In addition to brake pads and quick releases, the wheels come with valve extenders and a user manual.
Weight for the Campagnolo Bora Ultra 35 Tubular wheelset is 1170g.
