CADEX 42 Tubular Wheelset
We're consistently surrounded by some of the best that the cycling world has to offer, which allows us to have intimate knowledge of a swath of cycling kit and components. CADEX is right there. While relatively new to the scene, their components have impressed us from the outset, largely due to borne out of a maximal commitment to advanced research on cycling dynamics and our close partnerships with professional teams and athletes. The CADEX 42 Tubular Wheelset is the brand's lightest wheelset tuned with racing in mind.
There's a load of tech in each wheelset. The rims are designed to provide the best flow transition from the tire to the sidewall of the rim, resulting in reduced aerodynamic loss when compared to standard hook bead rims. They feature a continuous carbon fiber structure enhancing overall durability while maintaining an aerodynamic shape and low weight. The carbon spokes are truable, directional to shave drag, and they mimic the shape of the blades on the four-spoke TT wheel. As for the hubs, they are nondescript but function ideally.
The CADEX-specific brake pad features a specifically designed channel to optimize water displacement as well as an all-new compound allowing the pad to conform better to the brake track, resulting in more precise and effortless braking without brake fade that comes with many rim brake carbon wheels.
At just 1163 grams for a wheelset, the CADEX 42 Tubular Wheelset looks to be among the lightest wheelsets on the market that manages strong aerodynamics and ride quality. This wheelset feature Shimano HG 11-speed and SRAM XDR freehub options. Designed for use with tubular tires.
