With the increasing number of road riders preferring the benefits of wider tire profiles, Campagnolo has taken their recently released wider Shamal C17 wheels and married them to their premium ceramic-surfaced Shamal Milles. The new Shamal Mille C17 wheelset now lets you have that wider profile with improved braking.
Check out the details and specs of the new wider aluminum flagship Shamal Mille C17 wheels and what makes them so special…
We saw Campagnolo’s new wider Shamal Ultra C17 wheels back in March and then they showed off the Shamal Millie which was their Shamal C15 wheelset with a new ceramic surface technology that improves braking this past July. The ceramic coating of the Shamal Mille is permeated into the rim’s surface and is said to improve braking performance in all conditions, wet or dry. The coating also adds an attractive black tone to the rim to give them a more menacing look.
The wider profile of the C17 improves the rim’s compatibility with the growing number of 25 & 28mm tires. This allows not only more traction and an improved ride but can reduce rolling resistance on less than perfect surfaces and improve aerodynamics over the more standard C15’s width.
The 1459 g Shamal Mille C17 wheels use their MoMag technology that eliminates the need for a rim strip and incorporates their 2-Way fit system so both standard and road tubeless tires will work. You also get their signature G3 spoke arrangement, USB ceramic bearings, and oversized aerodynamic spokes. One unique feature I’ve appreciated in the past is their “Rim Dynamic Balance technology which is essentially a “balanced” wheelset (like on your car) making those high-speed descents more stable than ever.
