220Triathlon: KRU Wheels are “very fast and affordable wheels with an impressive hub”

UK’s largest selling Triathlon Magazine 220 Triathlon has recently reviewed KRU Carbon Clincher C-88 wheels in their recent Spring issue.

The Magazine assigned KRU wheels a rating of 91%, which refers to their highest category for products they recommend to “buy now – a genuine class leader“.

In the words of the 220 Triathlon journalist, KRU are “very fast and affordable wheels with an impressive hub”.

“The first feeling when riding is an incredibly fast pair of wheels” and “when it’s about braking response, the C-88 perform in line – if not better – than other wheels of the same category”.

“The smartest part of the wheel is the hub, an idea that was awarded at the CosmoBike Show. ”

The second key feature is the carbon fibre used in construction. KRU uses a fibre with a higher thermal conductivity, which helps spread braking heat in the case of overheating.

We are happy to share with you the article they have written titled “Eurobike 2016: KRU about some of the products we announced here in Friedrichshafen such as the K-Class Cockpit, an incredibly light integrated stem-handlebar combination. The post includes details and pictures of both our wheels and components.

Here are some of their quotes translated for those of you who don’t speak italian:

“It’s always a pleasure when in the exhibition we come across a new brand with interesting ideas”

“A very interesting product is the tubular disc wheel, which is built as a single monocoque piece.”

“The hub is one of KRU’s strongest elements. Completely developed and patented by them, they are characterised by a unique system that avoids the loss in performance seen in many wheels due to over-tightening of quick-release skewers. Furthermore, the external parts of the hub can be personalised with covers available in various colours.”

  • Insights into our story and the technologies we have developed
  • Pictures of our wheels (carbon clinchers, carbon tubulars and carbon alloy clinchers)
