New for 2019, the amazing Miche Neon lightweight alloy clinchers. After many years of research and development the Neon wheelset is born.
The objective of creating a lighter wheelset to our current top of the range alloy clinchers, the Miche Syntium AXY has not been an easy task. We have tried to maintain the same level of strength and rigidity whilst at the same time reducing the weight.
As we have often found, a lighter wheel does not necessarily mean a faster wheel!
Tested and developed in the Miche Engineering Lab, where we have tested the wheels rigidity and power transfer ability, this together with lifecycle testing on our rolling road, to meet our goal, to build a wheelset that performs fantastically, yet is also ultra-reliable.
The rim width now matches the current trend for wider rims / tyres being 17mm internal section, ideal for 25c or 28mm clincher tyres. The rear rim is skilfully tuned to improve its performance with the use of a taller depth than the front rim along with an asymmetric profile.
The wheels are assembled using double-butted straight pull 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. 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.
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.
The new Miche Neon wheels excel over mixed or mountain terrain, when the road rises, they will boost your performance.
