The Hyperon™ tubular was the first Campagnolo® wheel with carbon hub and rim, produced entirely in Vicenza. While being the lightest wheel in the range and one of the lightest racing wheels of all, it offers strength characteristics at the absolute level which are truly incredible for its weight.
It is a wheel built to achieve the same specifications of power, strength and rigidity of all the other Campagnolo® wheels with the added benefit of an even longer cycle of resistance to fatigue, thanks to the extraordinary characteristics of the material used.
The new Ultra version is characterized by the adoption of a monolithic light-alloy freewheel body and by the use of lighter counternuts, with a weight saving of 20 g over the already extremely light 2006 version.
Of course the tubular Hyperon™ Ultra™ does not set any special limits on the weight of the rider compared with other Campagnolo® wheels, as the lightness has been obtained thanks to design sophistication as well as to the use of special low-weight materials with extremely high mechanical specifications.
