The Scirocco™ wheelset takes its name from the fierce and hot wind originating from the Sahara Desert as it imitates the speed with which this wind arrives to Italy and France. A highly respected wheel capable of offering high-end performance at a more accessible price point, the Scirocco is a great choice for those wishing to experience the quality construction and long lasting performance of Campagnolo wheels. This version of the Scirocco™ builds upon the strengths that made the previous version such a well-respected and trouble free wheel, making for an even better all-around wheel.
Medium profile, high performance
Safe and reliable
The Scirocco™ name, originating from a strong wind, seems all the more fitting when considering its 35mm profile. A staple in the high-end carbon fiber wheel segment, the 35mm profile offers a versatile aerodynamic benefit that excels in all conditions. Such a versatile profile reduces drag moving forward while not creating instability in cross wind situations. Thanks to the Scirocco™’s incorporation of a similar profile it too can offer the aero advantages previously reserved only for those willing purchase carbon fiber wheels.
This version of the Scirocco™ has been designed with a C17 profile, creating a more efficient tire/rim interface which results in not only improved handling and comfort but also allows for a more efficient tire shape. This wider rim, perfect for 25 up to 28mm clincher tires, allows the tire to take a straighter, less bulbous shape and in turn leave a more uniform surface for airflow with less discontinuous area between tire and rim to create turbulence. Improved structural integrity and a very precise braking surface come from the Scirocco™’s welded rim whereas a great deal of the Scirocco™’s competitors are pin joined at the junction.
The lifespan of this product is increased even further by incorporating spoke support tabs capable of distributing tension in a more efficient manner inside the rim. The aluminum hub and axle keep weight to a minimum and increasing lateral stiffness while the Mega G3™ oversize flange on the rear wheel increases torsional stiffness and, in turn, improves reactivity. The same free hub body construction found on the top-end wheels is available in both Campagnolo ED and HG11 versions.
The front wheel maintains a lightweight and efficient construction thanks to its 16 aerodynamic, butted, radial laced stainless steel spokes. The rear wheel incorporates the exclusive Mega G3™ spoke pattern with 14 pokes on the drive side and 7 on the opposite to ensure the perfect balance of tension that renders an asymmetric unit more symmetric in function and performance. The Scirocco™ takes a great deal of technology and puts it all in one race-ready package at a price accessible to any cyclist. At a highly respectable 1654 grams this wheelset is a valuable upgrade for beginners but also experienced athletes.
