PROTOUCH – AFRICA’S #1 CONTINENTAL TEAM – chose Deda Elementi wheels to ride for its 2020 season. Competing alongside top African, Asian and European Continental and Pro Continental Teams, PROTOUCH™ last year competed in twenty UCI events, in thirteen countries on four continents and completed over 11 500km of racing and understands that having the right wheels is imperative.
Deda Elementi wheels provide superior stiffness and super smooth rolling resistance, thanks to higher standard quality bearings. All carbon models are originally equipped with enduro® ceramic bearings. New lighter carbon rim construction to reduce the wheel inertia.
The wider rim generation provides a better support to the tire and reduce the rolling resistance, increasing at the same time the wheel strength and providing enhanced aerodynamics.
The rim is built with the tubeless-ready technology to be compatible with clincher and tubeless(*) tires.
The 26mm rim width makes the wheel the perfect solution for any riding condition including gravel roads. The SL hubs are equipped with Enduro® Ceramic bearings for super high smooth-rolling and ultimate speed. Abec-5 tolerances and Graphite Nylon retainers are premium features ensuring long lasting and greater durability. The rear hub design and spokes count (2:1 pattern) results in improved lateral stiffness for any riding style.
On race day, the PROTOUCH Team uses the NEW SL48C Carbon Clincher – wheel-set for high-speed use and for all kind of races. The 48mm deep rim profile combined with the 26mm width result in enhanced aerodynamics and reduced rolling resistance.
