The CITEC 8000 CX / 63 Carbon achieves a top level aerodynamic performance. Even in rough wind conditions it still offers an predictable handling. The 63 mm deep rim made of an aluminum-carbon bonding system comes comes with CITEC's patented Concave-System which allows a decrease of weight while increasing the resilience of the rim. This guarantees long term strength while saving weight at the rim, reducing the rotating mass. The machined aluminum braking surface delivers a reassuring braking performance at any speed. The 21 bladed spokes offering virtually no resistance to the air. The near absence of air turbulence around the spokes results in a unsurpassed aerodynamic performance.
To reach a higher stiffness CITEC developed the ETS (Equal Tension System). Twice as much spokes are used at the heavier loaded side where the sprocket is. The result is a symmetric spoke tension. All play between hub and spoke is eliminated through the use of straight spokes threaded directly into a special sleeve (power block) in the hub. Even under permanent load CITEC wheels will resist spoke breakage, while constant re-tensioning and re-truing become unnecessary. Furthermore it increases the true running stability. The CITEC Concave System
is an innovative, patented rim construction method. It allows a decrease of weight while at the same time increasing the resilience of the rim. This new development, comparable to the arch of a bridge, allows us to reduce the spoke number in the wheel without compromising the integrity of the rim base. The forces acting on the rim are directed away. This guarantees long term strength and maximum resilience while saving weight at the rim, reducing rotating mass.
