Hyperon has returned to Campagnolo's product line-up and has been completely redesigned to become something greater. Incredibly lightweight, stiffer and more aerodynamic than any other.
Weighing in at just 1240g, these wheels shine above the rest with pure agility in mind they're finely balanced between lightness, handling and reactivity. Secretly tested out in the Pro Peloton in the 2022 racing season and has now been perfected to have range-topping performance. Suitable for everyone, Hyperon can handle a combined rider and bike weight of 115kg.
Quite simply, it's the best lightweight wheelset money can buy - a true all rounder, suitable for all types of riding.
Handmade Ultra-Light Carbon
The rims are crafted using Campagnolo's Handmade Ultra-Light Carbon, or H.U.L.C process. This is the latest evolution of the unique rim moulding process that has been developed by Campagnolo during its twenty-five years of carbon manufacturing experience. The H.U.L.C technology ensures optimisation of the profiles, the quantity of carbon fibre and the proprietary resin used, all contributing to increased stiffness and resistance.
C-LUX is an evolution of the already premium finish of Campagnolo carbon rims. Their high gloss, mirror-like surface is not only high-quality but is so flawlessly smooth that it doesn't require lacquer, saving weight. The scientific precision of C-LUX also helps to ensure the safest possible seating of tubeless tyres, increasing the pressure seal, ease of installing and reduce the risk of abrasions to the bead.
Carbon Fibre Lacing
The carbon is uniquely laced with a single point of conjunction, compared to the industry standard four points, eliminating points of weakness. This lacing boosts rigidity and performance output.
The fibres of the carbon are oriented to flow around the spoke hole, rather than being punched through. Seamless homologation of the materials protects the spokes from scratches and fatigue.
Head To Bay System
For increased durability and safety, the high precision Head-To-Bay coupling has been optimised to prevent spoke inelastic shearing. This innovative technology introduces a high-load management system to reduce the risk of damage and works alongside a perfectly balanced spoke tension management system to ensure your power is transferred to the road efficiently.
N3W Freehub Body
The N3W freewheel body is Campagnolo's future. It is a patented standard for a freewheel body engineered to house 11, 12 and 13 speed cassettes with 9, 10 and 11 tooth starting sprockets. With unmatched smoothness and delivering maximum torsional stiffness, the design is even lighter for ultimate control.
Standing for Ceramic Ultimate Level Technology, CULT bearings offer a significant upgrade from all other bearings. The key to CULT's extraordinary performance is using the highest quality materials in its hybrid construction. Incredibly hard and perfectly round ceramic bearings maintain consistent performance over time and run on synthetic oil on stainless-steel races which have been specially-treated to make them resistant to wear.
Front Wheel Spoke Pattern
The left-hand spoke pattern was chosen to provide maximum braking stability, to harmonise with the right-hand spoke pattern designed for excellent thrust efficiency. Every spoke is made from ultra-lightweight steel for reactive handling.
Advanced Aerodynamic Properties
The Aero Mo-Mag system takes aerodynamics to the next level. The internal fibreglass-reinforced polymer seats for the spoke nipples ensure perfect alignment with the spokes, reducing real-world stressors on the components. Our innovative construction allows the wheels to be built lighter and, with a completely internal system, optimised for cutting through the wind.
Asymmetric Rim Profile
The rear rim profile is asymmetric for super stiffness control and total tension management � allowing you ultimate control and handling ability for every twist and turn.
Rim Profile Depth and Width
The optimal rim profile has been identified as 37mm by Campagnolo engineers, to provide agility-enhancing wheels. They can withstand rapid and reactive changes for fast ascents and quick manoeuvres. The inner rim width of 21mm offers extreme stiffness and extra weight savings.
Single Joint Construction
The Campagnolo single-joint rim construction reduces the potential points of weakness by having a solo fuse-point, down from the industry standard 4 joints. This enables the rim to be extremely stiff and, when combined with the aerospace-grade carbon material, incredibly hard-wearing and resistant to damage.
