March 15th UCI Approved Wheel Update

While we have been watching the UCI’s website like a hawk, we found the updated wheel list today. Up until this afternoon, a previous update from late February was posted. Based on some of the dates, they might have gotten their date wrong on the document (posting date of 3/15, with approvals as late as 3/31). Regardless, here is our report on the new list.

Some of the highlights come from two big brands, Shimano, and Trek’s component brand, Bontrager. For Shimano, the C60 and C40 in tubular form have been approved. We’ve started to see more and more of the new Dura-ace 9100 show up on pro bikes, so with this approval, the wheels are already being used at this point.

The wheels from Hunt offer a 45mm deep wheelset, and a 55mm/80mm pairing. The new wider aero rim is 25mm wide outer width are built to be used with 23mm or larger road tires, and are also suitable for a cyclocross set up.
