Princeton Carbonworks Wake 6560

"The WAKE 6560s are cutting edge, look great, and made a huge difference in my first 70.3 race last September. I am a former college swimmer and long-time runner/yogi, so going into triathlons seemed natural except for the cycling part! I first dabbled in sprint triathlons and then a few olympics on my beloved Cannondale road bike, but when I decided to kick it up a notch to the 70.3 distance, I knew that I had to focus A LOT more on the cycling leg. As a petite 5’3″, 120 pound woman, it is hard for me to generate a lot of power on the bike and go as fast as I would like on the bike. Additionally the course for the half-Ironman spends a lot of time on the Atlantic City Expressway which gets some crazy Jersey Shore crosswinds that are really hard to manage, especially for a lighter rider. I had biked a shorter, similar course in the TriAC Olympic triathlon the month before without the WAKE6560s and I struggled with the crosswinds significantly. Upgrading my wheel set to the WAKE6560s was exactly what I needed. The deep oscillating profile made a huge difference in handling the AC expressway (2.5 loops of it!) crosswinds with much more ease when I tackled it a month later in IMAC70.3 and my overall average speed on the bike was MUCH faster, over double the distance. Well done, Princeton CarbonWorks! Looking forward to crushing the 2018 Triathlon Season with my Wake 6560s!" - Yen Tay (verified customer)
