Campagnolo Scirocco road wheelset review



Campagnolo Scirocco road wheelset

BikeRadar verdict

60.0 out of 5 stars

"Concentric and true, with unusual G3 spoke pattern on the rear"

Wednesday, December 28, 2011 12.00pm By

The Scirocco rear wheel uses Campagnolo’s G3 spoking pattern: every radial left-hand spoke sits between two tangential right-hand spokes. This divides the load better, but means you’re limited to the company’s own rims.

Most of the spokes are bladed except for two plain-gauge spokes up front and one in the rear. Campagnolo do this to balance the wheel, and while the rim joint opposite is annoyingly prominent we’re not sure why a tiny weight wasn’t fixed to the rim instead. Build quality is fair: the wheels are concentric and true but spoke tension needs to be more consistent.
