HADRON ULTIMATE LAUNCH!

HADRON Ultimate: Lower drag, lighter, stiffer, ceramic bearings and tubeless ready! Also in disc brake versions. The full carbon HADRON Ultimate makes a further step in speed on the already widely acclaimed and award winning original HADRON aero wheels. Ultimate aerodynamics coupled with ultimate stiffness to weight characteristics with ceramic bearings as standard make the HADRON Ultimate the fastest and best engineered wheels on the market.

Already tried and tested, the HADRON Ultimate 800+ helped propel Andreas Raelert to upstage the world favourites to a show-stopping 2nd place at the 2015 Kona Ironman World Championships!

Building on the already ultra low wind sensitivity characteristics of the HADRON rim shapes, drag has been further reduced by optimising the tyre interface and with a lower spoke count thanks to the new full carbon construction. Coupled with ceramic bearings as standard, the HADRON Ultimates offer absolute minimum resistance for maximum speed.

The HADRON Ultimates are the first of their kind employing Swiss Side’s newly patented hybrid carbon-carbon construction (instead of carbon-aluminium). This further Formula 1 derived engineering revolution allows for unparalleled structural optimisation of the rim with perfect tuning of the vertical and lateral stiffnesses, independent from the aerodynamic form. This gives perfect power transfer without a loss in comfort and grip.

«Aerodynamics by Swiss Side» with the team’s 50 years experience from Formula 1 applied to the development process:
 
– Real world performance data collected using Swiss Side’s unique «Instrumented Bike» was used for optimizing the wheel design during the development phase based on the rider’s reaction out on the road.
 
– CFD developed HADRON low wind sensitivity profiles with aerodynamically optimised tyre interface for lower base drag levels for maximum speed.
 
– Extensively wind tunnel tested and proven aerodynamic performance.
 
– The Ultimate in Formula 1 structural optimisation was used for the HADRON Ultimate rim development. Extensive composite materials testing and characterisation was performed, coupled with the latest in composite Finite Element Analysis (FEA) methods, to produce not only the most structurally efficient and stiffness optimized design, but also a highly durable rim structure.
