Nowhere will you find a carbon clincher wheelset with an aggressive 66mm profile priced for what you would expect to pay for the finest, standard-depth alloy rims.
That’s the idea behind the Essor Dash. The Dash starts with Essors’ exclusive unidirectional carbon fiber layup process in a symmetrical air foil shape recognized as having an exceptionally low drag coefficient. It permits a shorter spoke length for less drag and a smooth ride. It’s fast, stiff, stable and exceptionally smooth. The Dash features unidirectional carbon fiber, a scrim layer in the carbon braking surface, new, improved hubs, standard J-bend spokes, and a very attractive price. Roll up to the line on a pair of these, and you’ll command plenty of respect, and quite a few envious stares.
Right now I don’t know of a better price point from a domestic brand.
