Setting the BenchmarkIntroducing the Gravel racing king GRC 1400 SPLINE 42. The most sophisticated gravel wheelset out there on the market. Taking a holistic approach to engineering, we rethought the characteristics of a modern benchmark-setting gravel wheelset. Aerodynamic efficiency, ideal support of wide gravel tyres leading to unprecedented comfort and traction off-road as well as remarkable durability – these are just some of the key features that make this wheelset the perfect companion for your next gravel adventure.EngineeringWith the introduction of gravel-specific wheelsets, we are closing the gap in the gravel wheel market and offering products developed specifically for gravel riding. The key points are the implementation of 650b and 700c wheels into the new wheel line-up and the further increased rim inner width of 24 mm that leads to even better rolling resistance and improved tyre support for bulky gravel tyres. The gravel segment itself is quite diverse with different types of gravel riding. In particular, the tyre choice significantly influences riding characteristicsAerodynamicsReducing aerodynamic drag was a key target of the development process for the GRC 1400 SPLINE 42 wheelset. Aerodynamics have a significant influence on riding speed both on tarmac and off-road. While speed may not be your primary goal on bike-packing trips, it definitely is for all racing-oriented gravel riders. Regarding the influence of a gravel tyre on performance, an aerodynamically optimized wheelset needs an aerodynamically performing tyre to deliver its full potential meaning as little profile and as narrow as possible, which requires a compromise in terms of comfort, traction and durability.
