This version of the Neutron has an extremely low weight you must feel it to believe it. The secret Precise dimensioning of the walls and top bridge of the rim and the spectacular carbon fibre hubs. Neutron have calibrated extrusions for the hi-tech rims and hubs with carbon body and aluminium flanges. The wheel characteristics are exceptional: lightness, reactivity, and lateral rigidity when off the saddle, while the very light hubs make them stand out among competing products. The wheels therefore maintain all the features which have made them famous: lightness, reactivity, lateral rigidity when off the saddle and exalt them, thanks to the new lighter hubs. The rims are welded and their braking surface turned. Then grinding is carried out in the areas between the spokes where the stresses are lower and the structure can be lightened. This is the typical result of a study using the finite element method followed, of course, by an unforgiving validation cycle in the laboratory and on the road. The rims are differentiated: the front rim is symmetrical and lighter while the rear one is stouter and is drilled asymmetrically to improve the wheel dish and exalt lateral rigidity. As always, the spokes work without flexions thanks to the self-locking nut coupled spherically to the plate that distributes the load, guaranteeing longer life cycles and greater lateral wheel rigidity. These are fabulous wheels for routes featuring considerable altitude differences or for very long competitions, where performance and comfort must coexist.
Wheels are probably the second most important part of your bike, after the frame. A lot of the bike’s riding characteristics come from its wheels.
Who needs wheels?
A wheel upgrade can make a massive difference to your bike. Because of this, you might consider a new set of wheels, even if the old ones aren’t worn or damaged.
What are the choices?
Mountain bikers choose their wheels in 26in, 27.5in or 29in size, depending on what their frame is built for. Road bike wheels are 700c. Beyond this, there’s a dizzying array of rim material and depth, spoke type and hubs galore – enough to make your head spin faster than your wheels.
What should I buy with them?
A wheel upgrade always deserves a lovely new set of tyres. These too have a massive impact on how your bike rides.
There are several approaches to buying wheels – you can buy a full wheelset, for perfect pairing, or you can take a modular approach, picking hubs and rims before having a new set built to your specification.
