800+

The HADRON Ultimate 800+ is designed to offer absolute top level aerodynamic performance without compromising cross-wind sensitivity.


Noticeably lower cross-wind sensitivity than equivalent deep section wheels, the 800+ is designed specifically for triathlon and time trial. Aerodynamically superior through Swiss Side’s unequalled aerodynamic development methods.

625

The HADRON Ultimate 625 is designed to offer top level aerodynamic drag performance whilst maintaining low cross-wind sensitivity for medium to high wind days.


The 625 is truly an all-around wheel for both road and triathlon / time trial. Aerodynamically superior through Swiss Side’s unequalled aerodynamic development methods.

485

The HADRON Ultimate 485 is designed to offer ultra-low cross-wind sensitivity for high wind days or riding in the mountains, or for riders who desire a very-low sensitivity aero wheel.


Rideable anywhere and in any conditions without compromise on aerodynamic performance. Aerodynamically superior through Swiss Side’s unequalled aerodynamic development methods.

EVOLUTION DER TRIATHLONRÄDER: 20 MINUTEN SCHNELLER IN 20 JAHREN – EIN VERGLEICHSTEST (tri2B.com, Sept-2015)

Höher, schneller, weiter – dieser Grundsatz gilt im Sport und auch im Triathlon – ganz besonders in der Raddisziplin . Wobei “weiter” wohl am besten für die Weiterentwicklung in der Aerodynamik steht. Von Jahr zu Jahr sind die Entwicklungsschritte eher unscheinbar und oft nur im Detail zu erkennen, innerhalb von zwei Jahrzehnten hat sich aber viel getan, wie unser Windkanal-Vergleichstest eines Triathlonbikes aus den 90iger Jahren und eines aktuellen Zeitfahrrades zeigt.

TECHNOLOGY

REAL TECHNOLOGIES ONLY! NO GIMMICKS, ONLY RELEVANT, REAL PERFORMANCE TECHNOLOGIES, BACKED UP BY REAL DATA, PROVEN TO MAKE YOU FASTER!

F1-AERODYNAMICS
Arrow down icon

Swiss Side’s technical team has over 50 years of combined experience from Formula 1. Our aerodynamic development processes come from deep within the closed circles of F1 and are absolutely unmatched in the cycling industry.

Featuring a 4-armed development process consisting of Computational Fluid Dynamics, Wind Tunnel Testing, Instrumented Bike on-road testing, and Performance Simulation, Swiss Side is revolutionizing aerodynamics in the cycling industry.

F1-STRUCTURES

Once again, Swiss Side’s technical team has unmatched know-how in structural design and FEM (Finite Element Modeling) in both metallic and composite structures. Like this we bring you the best structural designs, intelligent material selection & usage, and industry leading structural optimisation processes.

ULTRA-AERO FRONT HUB
Arrow down icon

Size is everything! The Swiss Side front hub features a minimal design for ultimate in aerodynamic performance. A cylinder is the worst aerodynamic shape for drag and frontal area is the enemy. Therefore the front hub diameter is sized as small as possible without compromising in bearing longevity, rolling resistance, or overall stiffness, to give the maximum possible performance. Minimum size also = Minimum weight, with our aluminium forged and CNC post-machined front hub weighing in at only 74g!


Deep groove cartridge bearings and tolerance matched hub assembly means no pre-load, no adjustment, just trouble-free riding.

SPOKE TENSION OPTIMISED REAR HUB
Arrow down icon

The Swiss Side rear hub is designed to offer an even balanced spoke tension between drive and non-drive sides. This ensures superior handling (no lateral rim movement with bump) as well as longer life for both hub and rim due to reduced overall spoke tension. The aluminum rear hub is forged and CNC post-machined with triple-pawl, micro-shuffle drive freehub, weighing in at 218g.


Deep groove cartridge bearings and tolerance matched hub assembly means no pre-load, no adjustment, just trouble-free riding.

HIGH MODULUS CARBON FIBRE ...
Arrow down icon

Using composite FEM optimized carbon fibre laminates, including high modulus fibres, Swiss Side wheels are optimized for the ultimate balance of stiffness, strength, robustness and light weight construction.

2-PIECE STRUCTURAL CONTROL
Arrow down icon

Swiss Side’s 2-piece structure allows for lighter weight construction and better independent tuning of the lateral and vertical stiffness characteristics. Result: comfort (vertical compliance) without loss in power transfer (lateral stiffness).


EPIC SOUNDTRACK
Arrow down icon

Through the 2-piece hybrid construction, Swiss Side wheels offer the ultimate in carbon wheel sound, unanimously loved by all Swiss Side customers. Your competitors will hear you as you approach and pass them with your “woom woom!”.
Check it out.


ULTRA THIN GRAPHICS FINISH
Arrow down icon

As in Formula 1 and the aviation industry, smooth surface finish is imperative for minimising the drag on cycling wheels. For this reason, Swiss Side graphics are applied with ultra thin, step-less transfer technology decals, applied directly onto the carbon fibre surface, just like on Formula 1 car wings.

CARBON-CARBON HYBRID
Arrow down icon

Using composite FEM optimized carbon fibre laminates, including high modulus fibres, Swiss Side wheels are optimized for the ultimate balance of stiffness, strength, robustness and light weight construction.

CERAMIC BEARINGS
Arrow down icon

Swiss Side HADRON Ultimate wheels come as standard with industry leading Enduro ceramic hybrid deep groove cartridge bearings. ABEC-5 tolerances and LLB seals with Graphite Nylon retainers are premium features that are not available in other brand ceramic hybrid bearings at two or even five times the cost. Oversized Silicon Nitride Grade 5 balls and cryogenic treatment of the ABEC-5 races ensure long lasting, smooth rolling bearings for greater durability and ultimate speed.


TUBELESS READY CARBON CLINCHER
Arrow down icon

The HADRON Ultimate features a tubeless ready carbon clincher construction. Pre-installed with light weight, high strength rim tape, and supplied with tubeless ready value with extensions.
