The BORG45 Disc wheelset is reliable aerodynamic wheelset which will allow you to ride a bit quicker for the same effort. Drag reduction comes from the depth of the rim but also the width keeping the tyre width around the width of the rim. 

In addition the profile of the rims and the rim tyre interface results in stable handling in windy conditions. As stable as you would be on shallow rimmed wheels. 

The rims are 26mm wide (19mm internal width), 45mm deep for real tyre widths of a minimum of 25mm. IRC Formula Pro RBCC or X-Guard 25mm are suggested as these sit at 25mm on these rims. The 28mm tyres are again 28mm wide. Tyres that sit 25mm to 28mm wide are aerodynamically optimal for this rim. Suggested maximum tyre width is in the region of 40mm.

These are light, stiff, aerodynamic wheels that got a best value award in Cycling Weekly. The wheels are hand built in Suffolk, U.K. These wheels are built with specially selected parts for high miles and to help you ride faster too. 

The logo is in gloss black and are manufactured as part of the rim. Once you see the rims and feel the logo finish you'll appreciate the wheels even more.

The wheels can be built for the Cannondale 6mm offset. 

They are very stiff and therefore feel responsive and spoke life will be very long.

BORG have had Miche make these in 24H, 28H, and 32H drillings. They have a large flange design because large flange hub reduces the braking loads on the spokes compared to small flange designs.
