DISCUS 45|32 LTD TUBELESS WHEELS INFORMATION:
The Discus 45 3T Tubeless Wheelset | 35 LTD combines the comfort of off-road wheels with the aerodynamics of road wheels. They are wide, strong and fast while remaining aerodynamic despite their width, providing extra comfort and grip. These wheels are optimized for 28-30mm tyres, making them a great choice for the 3T Strada. They also pair well with 32-40mm gravel tires for your 3T Exploro. The Discus is engineered with RealFast aerodynamics which allows these 45mm deep rims to offer almost identical crosswind resistance to standard wheels with a 60mm rim depth. The rim is designed to be more balanced front and rear to negate aero disadvantages, leading 3T to claim it as the fastest wheel at 45mm.
Many companies neglect their wheel hooks in an effort to reduce weight. 3T decided that for these general-purpose wheels, hooks should be added for ultimate security. Although it is not common to have punctures in a tubeless tire, the wheels can be damaged when this happens. For this reason, 3T has added a Safety Ridge to these wheels. The Safety Ridge holds the tire to the rim through a flat to prevent damage to your wheels. For added safety, there's a Sealtight feature that keeps mud, water and everything else out of the bearings to keep the wheels cool. These wheels come with two freehub bodies to suit whatever setup you decide to use. A SRAM xD-R body accommodates both xD and xD-R cassettes while the Shimano freewheel houses Shimano 10 and 11 speed cassettes.
