Campagnolo Bora WTO 33 offers multi purpose aerodynamics for rim or disc brakes

Campagnolo is rounding out their Bora WTO line with a new 33mm option. What’s WTO? That’s Campagnolo’s acronym for Wind Tunnel Optimized, or a wheel that is designed to help cheat the wind. This new Bora WTO 33 is the lowest profile option in the WTO line, but according to Campy, it still offers noticeable aero benefits compared to a non-optimized wheel.

After their 77, 60, and 45mm wheels, the 33 uses a rim profile that is 33mm deep, and has a 19mm internal width. When combined with the elliptical cross sections spokes in a G3 spoke pattern, the wheel package is said to save around 7.5 at 45 km/h “compared to a wheel that is not wind tunnel optimized.”

Built with their USB ceramic bearing hubs, the rims also include their 2-Way Fit tubeless technology. This allows for the use of standard tube-type tires or road tubeless.

Available in rim brake or disc brake versions, the disc brake option will be sold in their Dark colorway, while the rim brake version also gets the Bright option. Both will retail for 2,160€ and are available now.

7.5 what? Do BR contributors ever proofread their articles?

WTO = World Trade Organization

The external width listed at 36.5mm must surely be a mistake?

The disc one says 26.1, so I assume the rim brake model is 26.5

save around 7.5 at 45 km/h “compared to a wheel that is not wind tunnel optimized.” so all that optimization only saves me 7.5 watts copmpared to the sh@tist wheel they could compare it too, Hmm starting to think all this aero is a bit of a w@nk

I would like know what degree of engagement the shimano/sram freewheel body has for this wheelset.

For quite a few years Campy wheels have gone either way (with a cassette body variable)

If they had come out with this a few weeks earlier I would have these on my bike right now. Sad!
