It's no doubt that disc brakes can add superior braking performance when compared to rim brakes. There is better modulation, more useable power, and consistent performance over a variety of conditions. Now even the Road Bike category is reaping the benefits of the power of disc brakes, and Shimano is at the forefront of the revolution.
The RX31 Wheelset offers an affordable solution for disc brake compatible, road bike wheelsets. The RX31 starts with a lightweight, disc specific, aluminum rim that is 24mm wide to allow for tire sizes from 25c-38c, and a high profile that improves aerodynamics. The rim is laced to the hub with 24 stainless steel butted and bladed, straight pull spokes that are laced in a 2-cross pattern to add lateral and torsional rigidity. This means improved power transmission and added strength. The hub uses Shimano's tried and true angular contact bearing system with Labyrinth seals. This means superior strength and durability in real world riding conditions. This system also allows for easy adjustment and maintenance, ensuring they will spin fast and smooth for a long time. Shimano's Centerlock system easily and securely fasten the rotor to the hub. All this combined gives a wheelset that is prefect for everyday riding, commuting, or gravel grinding,and is built to last. Finally, this wheelset is thru-axle, for maximum stability, stiffness and braking performance. It is built to the newer 12x100mm and 12x148mm road thru-axle standard, rounding up a wheelset that's ready for anything you can throw at it!
