In a carbon fiber wheel market saturated with a seemingly endless stream of near copycat designs and construction, it's refreshing to see Vittoria stepping up with an innovative approach bent on changing the way we look at carbon fiber layup. The Qurano 46c Carbon Road Tubeless Wheelset incorporates Vittoria's proprietary Graphene G technology into the resin that binds the carbon fibers together for a resulting wheelset that's claimed to be better in almost every way. The inclusion of G addresses what's proven to be a massive thorn in the side of carbon rim technology to date heat buildup. Resin infused with G is said to increase heat dissipation by ten percent, which leads to more consistent braking power over time and less chance of catastrophic heat related failures such as blown out tires and delaminated braking surfaces.In addition to its heat dissipating prowess, G boasts a high mechanical strength for durability over rough roads and long miles. It comes with massive claims of a 50% increase in lateral stiffness compared to other compounds, which means lightning fast responsiveness and razor sharp handling. And while most super stiff wheels come at the expense of comfort, G also increases horizontal flexibility to soak up road vibrations and provide a comfortable ride without sacrificing power transfer or that snappy feel.Vittoria fashions the Qurano 46c with a 42mm front and 46mm rear rim depth combo, which is arguably the ideal dish for all around riding and racing. Deep enough to offer a marked aerodynamic advantage, shallow enough to snap up to speed off the line, and light enough to climb with the mountain goats without being so feathery as to inhibit momentum in flats and descents. Vittoria utilizes its Speedlock rim hook design for the Qurano 46c, which is a post machined, hooked bead designed to interface with both standard and tubeless ready clinchers. Its strategic shaping holds the tire bead securely and prevents the tire from separ...
