Campagnolo Bora One 50 Clincher Wheelset

CAD
 

There are few carbon wheelsets — if any – with such pedigree as Campagnolo’s Bora One. The Bora range, a mainstay of the WorldTour for several seasons, has been ridden to victory by legends of the sport, including Alejandro Valverde and Nairo Quintana.

Light, Fast, Durable

This wheelset might be a step down from the top-tier Ultra range, but that doesn’t mean it offers low quality. With this product, the iconic brand are offering an excellent balance between performance and value. This is a lightweight, durable, aero wheelset that offers the same race-winning performance as some carbon wheelsets twice the price.

The Bora One 50 makes use of design techniques and technology honed in Campag’s top-of-the-range wheelsets; bringing pro-level quality to more affordable prices. Boasting a 50mm-deep carbon rim, this is a wheel intended to maximise aerodynamic advantage and efficiency across a number of road scenarios.

However, as you’d expect from an Italian brand, aero gains aren’t coming at a cost of weight. At only 1485 grams for the set, you won’t feel bogged down when climbing in the Alps or accelerating out of corners. This is a wheel engineered for varied road conditions. Whether you race criteriums or road races, on the flats or in the mountains, this is a reliable wheelset up to anything you throw at it.

Wider Tyres

As well as straight-line speed, this wheelset can also accommodate larger clincher tyres than previous versions, ensuring that comfort and grip can be maximised when out on the road.

Braking Power

To improve on braking performance, the Italian brand have incorporated their AC3 (All Conditions Carbon Control) brake track, as well as a new resin. The new textured brake track, when combined with the proprietary brake pads provided, is said to offer an improvement of up to 40% when braking in wet conditions and 20% when it’s dry. The new resin, added in aid of heat dissipation, helps to keep the rims cooler during protracted periods of heavy braking, for example during long descents.

In The Hub

Spinning these top-quality rims is a large flange alloy-hub, filled with USB sealed ceramic bearings. Linking hub and rim are alloy spokes, laced by hand. 18 are used on the front and 21 on the rear. This, combined with the strong carbon layup, results in a durable wheelset ideal for rides on tough roads.

All considered, if it’s a wheelset that draws on experience in producing wheels for WorldTour level racing, then the Campagnolo Bora One 50 carbon wheelset is certainly worth consideration.

Campagnolo Bora One 50 wheels

The wheels came in awesome campy bags in great shape with brake pads and levers. I love the ceramic bearings and can feel the difference on my climbs and decent. They look awesome on my Colnago C-50 and get many compliments. Great value for the money and the shipping time was great. I'm 67 and these help me keep up with the young legs in my group. Big fan of Probikekit ......

Smooth ride

Well I was going to purchase a new bike because of the amount of mile on the current one. I keep cleaning and replacing anything that needs it. With the current bike shortage worldwide I decided to get a new set of wheels to smooth the ride out on these high friction roads in South Central Texas USA. PB answered the call again as they have numerous times in the past. They delivered on time. The shipping box has a crumpled corner. The wheels were in separate padded Campagnolo bags. There was also a small tool bag included with the skewers and wheel levers to remove the tires if needed later on, also carbon brake pads. The wheels looked great! I mounted new tires and tubes and installed the carbon brake pads on the bike. Took it out for a test ride. Oh yeah, these are keepers! I have been riding on them for a month now, over 850 miles and almost 7500 meters of climbing. I know these wheels will be taken care of and will go on a lot of rides. I love these wheels. They stand up to the high friction roads and rural farm/ranch land roads just great! I should have bought these years ago.

Bora One

Best match for this bike. I can’t justify Bora Ultras - I’m not that good of a rider. Arrived quickly and at a great price. So much better than the Mavic Kyseriums that can stock on this bike (and I moved to 28mm tires)

Highly recommended

Fabulous wheelset. Light, stiff and look great. Ridden a few time in different weather and they are fine in windy conditions and the AC3 brake surface is amazing in the wet. Campaign padded wheel bags, quick releases and brake pads all good. ProBikeKit delivered quickly and at the best price around.

Bora One...far from boring!

This is an exciting wheelset. Not only because they carry the legendary Campagnolo name but they fulfill that reputation by being beyond category. For a 50mm rim their weight is very much able to fulfill a climbing role on 30 to 60 minute climbs and the expected rolling finesse with the USB hubs on rolling and flat asphalt is noticeable, not just an echo of marketing superlatives. ProBikeKit got these wheels to me on the west coast of Canada in less than 12 days and they were perfect out of the box. I am impressed at PBK's ability to deliver what is promised with skill and thought to the nature of a "sensitive" product shipment.

Very good quality wheels

These wheels are perfect! They’re fast, light, beautiful! They came with brake pads, two quick-release and two wheel bags. Shipping was fast, no longer than a week (to Canada). Good price too! Highly recommended!

Solid (and aero) wheels

Was looking for a nice set of wheels for my circa-2000 Colnago Master X Light. Previous wheels were Mavic Ksyrium Elites, which were bombproof training partners for the last 15 years. The Bora wheels have been fantastic so far - tires went on easily with a little muscle, and they are holding up over the first ten rides. These wheels shed about a pound off the overall bike weight, and I can feel the aero impact on open flat roads. I like them so much that I bought a second pair for another bike!

Campy Bora One wheel set

These are truly excellent wheels. For years I have been using the Campy Bullets to great effect however I have recently upgraded to the Bora One. Quite a difference to be sure. A much better wheel for all conditions and comfort with the slightly wider rim and a 25 mm tyre, the ride is so much more pleasant. They track better in the cross winds especially going down hill and the braking is much more superior. I thoroughly recommend them !

Campy Bora One 50 Clincher

Received my new wheels in perfect condition, they even look better than expected. Cannot use them until next April has its winter in my area but they meet my criteria as for quality and persuaded it will be the same on the road.

Campagnolo Bora One Clincher wheelset

For years I have been riding on the Campy Bullets, which I thought were "bomb proof" with regard to poor road conditions, potholes etc. I recently upgraded to the above and am amazed at their build quality - almost too good to ride on..... Their performance is amazing and at my vintage age, wheels like this, coupled with a quality frame, enable me to keep my cycling "career" ongoing. I thoroughly recommend these wheels to any serious road cyclist.
