PRO-LITE Verona A25W
Wide-Rim Straight-Pull Asymmetrical Hub Wheelset
A new addition to the Verona series, the A25W brings our new wide rim and all the advantages of a broader contact patch.
At the same time, the asymmetrical hub directly addresses the imbalance inherent in every dished wheel. While more dish can give better lateral strength that helps when hammering out of the saddle, increasing the offset also decreases the tension, making the wheel more susceptible to fatigue and eventual failure.
Building a large flange on the non-drive side allows a higher tension to be used, compensating for the imbalance introduced by the need for space for a cassette.
The end result is a wheel that lasts longer by design.
Asymmetrical – but balanced.
Verona series wheels use an unusual asymmetrical hub to offset the length disparity between drive-side spokes and non-drive side spokes. This allows a stronger wheel, with less power lost to flexion.
