Miche Supertype 440RC

For 2019 the already extensive Supertype range has a new addition, the Supertype Carbon Clincher 440RC, available in both rim brake road disc brakes versions. The result of many years extensive research and development, Miche have moved carbon clincher performance up to a new level, a Ultra High performance Carbon clincher wheelset, the 440RC is a super lightweight, strong and highly reliable wheel at a competitive price.

Tested in the Miche Lab on our rolling road, to braking temperatures in excess of 250c, gurenteeing guaranteeing exemplary in the toughest of conditions.

The rim brake version is built with Miche UD carbon with a 40mm high tubeless ready profile with 17mm internal section, designed to work with 25c and up road clincher tyres, ensuring the correct tyre profile and load balance of the modern wider road tyre.

The rims for disc brake version have the same aesthetic profile as the rim brake model but the carbon lamination designed to strengthen the rim due to the different mechanical forces to which they are subjected with road disk brakes.

The wheels are assembled using double-butted spokes with dedicated spokes patterns: 18 spokes radial for the front, 24 rear crossed on the drive side and radial for the non-drive side in the rim-brake version, while for the disc brake version a 14 + 7 crossed pattern has been developed, for both front and rear wheel, to guarantee greater structural resistance and reactivity. Nipples are in Ergal for maximum lightness. Spokes, as with all Miche wheels, are custom-made by Sapim to Miche’s innovative design.

The Miche Supertype hubs for rim brake models feature oversize flanges built from a combination of carbon and AL7075-T6, excellent smoothness and long bearing life is assured thanks to the use of Miche specific ultra-performance SKF bearings.

Hubs for the innovative disc brake versions are made of AL 7075 T6 with oversized flanges. The DX hubs are supplied with a standard configuration for TX12 axles, with adapter included for TX15 front. A QR 9mm adapter kit is also available.

Exclusive materials are used for the freewheel body, which ls made of titanium and AL7075-T6 alloy. Freehub bodies are available, compatible with Shimano, Campagnolo and SRAM gear systems.
