Two for Today: Corima & Cipollini From Issue 94

 

CORIMA MCC DX 47MM

Corima’s new tubeless-ready MCC DX 47mm wheelset offers a radical design that looks straight out of the future. These wheels feature just 12 full-carbon spokes on each wheel, minimizing the impact of crosswinds, while an overhauled design improves aerodynamics by 9 percent at the front and 18 percent in the rear. The torque forces caused by both acceleration and braking in the rear carbon hub necessitate this wheelset’s signature Y-shaped spoke design. If you want a wheelset with truly innovative engineering, look no further. $4,200; 1,550g; corima.com

CIPOLLINI RB1K THE ONE

The RB1K The One is Cipollini’s quest to make the ultimate allaround race bike. It’s stiff in all directions, a nod to its superstar sprinter namesake; it’s light enough to build up in a sub-15-pound package; and it has the aerodynamics to deliver you to the bunch sprint with plenty left in the tank. But thanks in large part to clearance for 28mm tires, it also rides smooth as glass—despite its aggressive geometry and stiff build. From $10,990; mcipollini.com
