The aim of our TLO47 is to get the best out of it aerodynamically – naturally at an outstanding weight while taking stability and durability into account.
For the best performance at high speeds – The aerodynamic U-shape has been successively optimised to achieve the best aerodynamic properties. In order not to deform the shape under spoke tension, more material with different fibre orientations has to be accumulated – nevertheless, a low weight could be achieved while maintaining stability. Aerodynamics were even more important to us for this product than minimising weight.
21 mm – The rim is optimised for rims from 25 mm to 32 mm. The best aerodynamic properties are achieved with a tyre width of 28 – 30 mm. Of course, the rim can also be used with cross and gravel tyres.
Road and light off-road. Tested on the toughest roads in the world, ridden in the professional peloton at the Tour of Flanders – almost says it all, doesn’t it?
DT Swiss – For 3 years now, we have been relying on the quality and durability of the DT Swiss 180 hub for our “top range” TLO. Coupled with the very low weight, the DT Swiss 180 hub is the perfect match of all parameters that are important for Schmolke standards. The extremely reliable freehub system ensures direct power transmission even under the highest loads. Smooth-running SINC ceramic bearings with their extremely low rolling resistance provide a clear advantage.
Extralite – Right from the start, we have been using the ultra-light hubs from Extralite, which are CNC-milled from high-strength 7075TX aluminium near Milan. The hub body rotates around a 15 mm front and 17 mm rear aluminium axle with HDC ceramic deep groove ball bearings. The axial play can be finely adjusted using the micro-tuner. A tried and tested pawl freewheel works in the rear hub. A new feature is the use of titanium gearing with 32 teeth, which is controlled by two pawls.
We use steel spokes from the Belgian manufacturer SAPIM on all of our wheels. With the CX-Ray knife spoke we installed, Sapim has succeeded in developing an exceptional spoke. In addition to its low weight, it has exceptional load capacity and flexibility. This also results in the large area of application. Regardless of whether it is a racing bike, gravel or MTB wheelset, they all benefit from these positive properties. In addition, the flattened middle section ensures excellent aerodynamics. The high quality of the materials enables the construction of stable wheels and guarantees a long service life.
Before you make the purchase, you should be clear about which gears you have installed on your bike. This determines which freehub body you should order.
Shimano – If you have installed a Shimano group set, please select Shimano (HG-11) as the freehub body. Even with the new 12-speed gears, the cassette can still be installed on the conventional HG-11 freehub body without any problems.
SRAM – If your bike has a SRAM group with an 11-speed cassette, you should choose the Shimano HG-11 freewheel body to be able to install your cassette. The newer 12-speed AXS gears from SRAM require the XDR freehub body for assembly, in which the cassette is screwed onto the body in one piece.
Campagnolo – If you have installed a Campagnolo 12-speed gears, we ask you to select the “Campagnolo” freehub body when ordering. For example, if you need the N3W freehub body for your “EKAR” gravel group, please let us know in the order comments.
The TLO47 wheels are painstakingly laced and centered by our wheel builder. This is done in our workshop in Konstanz on beautiful Lake Constance. Great care is taken to ensure that each wheel is finished with optimal concentricity and the correct spoke tension. In order to optimize the fit of the spokes, our TLO47 wheels are machine pressed several times with a precisely defined force. This means that you as a customer do not have to have the wheels re-centered after a short time, but can enjoy the full driving pleasure of the wheels straight away and without any restrictions.
