Campagnolo Shamal Disc Thru-Axle Wheelset
Campagnolo innovated the factory built wheel system with the Shamal over 20 years ago. It has a notable race history and is still a race-ready aluminium wheelset with carbon hub.
Campagnolo have updated their Shamal Disc wheelset to offer thru-axle fitting. The wheelset is 22mm wide, using Campy’s C17 standard, and works ideally with 25mm and 28mm tyres for the same reasons as the Bora. It has a two-way fit undrilled rim bed, so it’s tubeless-ready, and needing only a valve this gives greater structural integrity with a subsequent performance increase.The rims have differentiated rim heights too 30mm rear, 27mm front, and toroidal milling removes excess material between the spoke holes.
New Shamal Mega G3 hubs have a carbon shell at the front, made possible by the wider stance of the aluminium spokes, and alloy hub flanges. The rear hub is a solid, one-piece aluminium structure designed to cope with the high opposing torque loadss. The wheelset has USB ceramic bearings and comes with 12mm thru-axle fittings with other adaptors sold separately. The Shamal Ultra DB is intended to match Record-level in terms of quality, but will of course work across the board.
