With some of our tubeless test wheels, getting the tyre inflated wasn’t easy, but with the Campagnolo Shamal Ultra 2-Way fit the internal rim profile works beautifully with the tubeless tyres so that they inflate without leakage.

Weight-wise the Shamals are pretty good given the profile, and are listed at 605g for the front and 790g rear. Variable-section alloy spokes and carbon centrepieces to both hubs give them an up-to-date look. Being a 2-Way Fit means that Campagnolo has designed the rim to work with either conventional clinchers or tubeless tyres, so you’re not tied into the system.
