How do we do it? Taking experience from the 6560, we launched the GRIT with our variable depth sinusoidal cross section, for unrivaled cross wind stability. We also introduced a slightly varying width to the profile, and optimized our carbon layup, focusing around high stress areas. The nipple bed has been completely re-engineered to provide greater carbon thickness in that area, while removing material where not needed. 21mm hook to hook and 29.9mm at the widest point. Next level stuff? Try a uniform, hole-less tire bed. By removing holes from the tire bed, the wheel becomes incredibly stiff (holes+carbon aren’t best friends). That allowed us to make the tire bed thinner (lighter) while providing greater hoop stiffness (stronger).
