Lareaus Bikes have proudly partnered with Winspace as our preferred wheelset supplier.
The Winspace HYPER range is the pinnacle of what's possible with wheel design. For 2020 Hyper totally re-engineered the wheel from the hub out. Carbon spokes give the best performance possible while ceramic bearings and an aero optimized rim make sure you're getting every bit of speed possible. No clever marketing gimmicks and just one simple, low price for the whole range.
Re-inventing the wheelWhen Winspace sat down to design the Lún HYPER Wheel Winspace considered going the route of our competitors and tweaking the design for a minor improvement. Shave some weight off the rim perhaps. Maybe tweak the spoke lacing. However, Winspace soon realized a wheelset is more than the sum of it’s parts. Upgrading one element causes consequences on another part of the wheel. So, Winspace took the decision to start from scratch and re-invent the wheel so to speak, for an all-new premium performance package. New rim, new spokes, new hub.
The Rim: Butterfly EffectThe butterfly weave of the rim surface does look cool, but it’s more than just aesthetics. These carefully filament-woven plies of carbon are positioned to reinforce the rim at the spoke holes and evenly distribute tension throughout the entirety of the rim. Furthermore the 26mm outer rim width is designed to optimize aerodynamic efficiency and reduce instability in crosswinds. The 19mm inner rim width is tubeless ready and supports the ongoing trend for wider and wider road bike tires.
Spokes: Superior material propertiesWinspace have been using carbon spokes on our Hyper wheels for years. But for the latest wheels they were totally redesigned the spoke making it lighter, stronger and more aerodynamic – the holy trinity of bike design. With their higher stiffness and greater tensile strength carbon spokes guarantee maximum power transfer giving you the edge in all-out sprints and high power climbs. Their aero profile also improves the efficiency of the wheel without compromising on weight.
Hub: The heart of a wheelset
Due to the unique design of carbon spokes, an off-the-shelf hub won’t do. Winspace engineered the hubs with 3 main goals; reliability, efficiency and lightweight. Over-sized 17mm central axles and optimized flange radius contribute to the overall strength of the wheelset, allowing the use of large ceramic bearings to minimize rolling resistance. The drive-side flange allows for the optimum spoke angle and length for maximum power transfer. An optional XDR driver ensures your wheels are future-proof.
UCI ApprovedWhether you're a weekend warrior or a national crit champion, you can rest assured knowing your wheels are approved for competition in UCI sanctioned races. UCI approval is just one aspect of our extensive quality testing and quality control program.
Lightweight or Aero? Why not both.Usually wheels are a trade-off between lightweight or aero. There are lots of high-profile 80mm wheels out there that perform well aerodynamically. There are lots of 20-30mm, stubby box-section wheels out there that look impressive on the scales but are aerodynamically poor at any speed above 10kph. Likewise there are a selection of wheels that try to do both and just end up mediocre in all fields. With HYPER, we've aced them both.
Independently wind-tunnel tested by Hambini Engineering, the 50mm HYPER wheels have the aerodynamic performance of the massive 80mm ZIPP 808s but weigh over half a kilo less. In fact, they were the fastest 50mm wheel they ever tested. Their smaller 38mm HYPER brothers share the same design ethos and clever wind-tripping profile so rest assured, no matter which one you choose you're getting ridiculously lightweight wheels with the aerodynamic performance of much heavier time-trial wheels.
