Boyd Podium 55mm Carbon Disc Wheelset DEMO

The Boyd Podium 55 Road Disc is a speed inspired disc brake specific wheelset that thrives in faster speeds and events. The more aero sibling to the 36 Road Disc, the 55s are a great option for those who live in flat to rolling terrain and are looking for a more efficient disc brake specific wheelset. With a 22mm internal width, the 55mm pairs perfectly with the growing popularity of running 28mm and larger tires on the road. This helps with handling, comfort, and lowering the rolling resistance for those long days in the saddle.

Boyd optimally creates a 2.5mm nipple offset helps to balance the spoke tension between drive and non-drive spokes, making for a better balanced, and stronger wheel. Finally, a disc brake specific carbon layup helps to reduce weight while keeping the same strength. Because this is not a repurposed rim brake rim, we don’t have to build up the carbon for a brake track. The result is weight savings with no skimping on the stiffness and durability. Boyd didn't just transfer their well regarded road rim brake aero design to this wheelset, but developed a design and build specific to disc brake bikes, to meet these specific needs and optimize the requirements of the Tubeless Ready disc brake rim. The result? A disc brake dedicated wheelset designed for faster speeds in a shape to improve stiffness and the balance in handling great for average speeds above 18mph. This is a great option for riders that ride a lot of group rides, race or compete in triathlon events.
