Conquer mountains, flatten hills, and feel your bike come alive with this ultra-light 1365 gram wheelset. The brand-new Alpinist CL now brings mountain-taming performance slightly closer to Earth with a carefully selected build designed to let riders take full advantage of the low rim and spoke mass.
In order to create a 1365-gram wheelset, we developed each wheel as a complete system. By making wheel systems, not just rims, our engineers can control every aspect of the design; rim, hub, spoke spec and lacing pattern. This eliminates variables associated with off-the-shelf components, which in turn allows us to optimize weight and strength. Bottom line - the Alpinist CL has precisely the amount and type of material needed, in precisely the correct place, and not a gram of fat anywhere.
The Alpinist CL utilizes the exact same rim as its World Tour winning sibling, the Alpinist CLX. Leveraging a complex and precise carbon fiber layup schedule makes for the lowest possible mass, optimized strength and high durability, all while serving up a smooth riding and superb handling.
The Alpinist CL utilizes components curated to make to keep you rolling, and rolling fast. The DT Swiss 350 hubs, featuring their Star Ratchet drive system is reliable and easy-to-service, while 24 DT Swiss Aerolite Straightpull spokes front and rear, laced to the rims with their alloy Pro Lock nipples are synonymous with reliability and can be obtained at any bike shop.
