New 3T Discus C45 Wide wheelset goes even wider for improved aerodynamics

3T says that the wheels have the aero performance of a 60mm deep wheel in an easier-handling format

3T has launched its latest Discus C45 Wide carbon clincher wheelset. It’s pushed the width of the new wheels out even wider: they’re 25mm internal and 32mm external, while – as the name suggests – they’re also 45mm deep. Claimed weight is 1640g.

3T’s Gerard Vroomen described the aero testing that the brand had performed on its new wheelset, when he visited UK distributor Saddleback to launch the wheels and 3T’s new three bike range of SRAM Red eTap AXS-equipped Strada and Exploro bikes.
