The Shamal wheelset represents somewhat of a cornerstone in fine performance wheelworks and as such it has been at the forefront of innovation since its inception over 20 years ago.
Born as the very first complete wheelset with each component in its build being specifically designed as a complete unit to ensure unparalleled efficiency and performance the Shamal continued to introduce new technologies that would change the way aluminum performance wheels were produced. So advanced was the Shamal in its early stages that it was found also in World Tour competition often and to this day is still perhaps the most race ready aluminum wheelset available.
A long list of innovative technologies found its way into the cycling world thanks to this wheelset such as:
Differentiated rim height
G3 Spoke pattern
Oversized driveside flange
USB ceramic bearings
Oversize Aerodymic Aluminum spokes
