The wheelset of choice for fast road riding and racing; the EXO 56 disc brake wheel is aero-prioritized while remaining best-in-class for weight.
The new Exo Wheels with aero carbon fibre wheels and ultralight weight carbon fibre spokes certainly stand up well against their high price competitors like Mavic R-SYS, ENVE SES 2.2, ZIPP 202, Fulcrum Racing Zero, Mavic Ksyrium Pro Carbon. Combine the excellent stiffness properties, with the low weigh, and the wheels would already be market leaders. Combine with the low price TUFF is able to offer these custom hand built wheels and they have a winner not just on the steep mountain slopes they are made for.
At 56mm depth in the front, and 56mm depth in the rear, the exo 56 was painstakingly refined to achieve the optimal combination of strength, stiffness, and lightweight for the application for which it was designed. In the case of the exo 5.6 – Road Racing.
