Do it all on Profile's Altair 52 Semi-Carbon Clincher Rear Wheel. A versatile 52mm rim depth provides an aerodynamic advantage you'll notice, yet is still light enough to accelerate quickly around competitors and take the sprint. For extra speed, Profile has shaped the rim for optimal aerodynamics during real-world cycling conditions because triathlons aren't held in the wind tunnel. And for additional strength and aerodynamics, Profile's custom hubs are laced with Sapim spokes and hidden nipples. When it's finally time to slow down, the Altair has an aluminum braking surface for sure stopping. And, since it's a clincher, changing a flat on course is a snap.
