We spotted a previously unidentified shallow-profile wheel on the front of Filippo Pozzato's (Katusha) bike the morning of the Tour of Flanders. It was labeled 'Vision' but had an uncharacteristic outer weave - was it in fact a Vision wheel?
The new wheel's official name is the TriMax Carbon TC24 and the carbon tubular rims feature a shallow 24mm depth but also a relatively generous 23mm section width. Vision laces those rims to its own CNC-machined aluminum hubs with straight-pull bladed Sapim stainless steel spokes (20 front, 24 rear). Axles are unusually large at 17mm in diameter and the aluminum freehub bodies are swappable between Shimano/SRAM and Campagnolo standards.
Total claimed weight per pair is a paltry 1,250g. Suggested retail price for the TriMax Carbon TC24 is yet to be finalized but will be "less than €2,000" and carbon/titanium skewers, brake blocks, and wheel bags will all be included. According to Radaelli, the new TriMax Carbon TC24 will be available to the public starting this July.
