Campagnolo Bora WTO 33: the top of the road wheels 

Campagnolo Bora WTO 33 wheels represent the top of the line in high-performance road wheels. With their 33 mm rims, the Bora WTO 33 wheels provide excellent aerodynamic qualities combined with lightness, responsiveness, and comfort on long rides. Let's look in detail at the features that make the Campagnolo Bora WTO 33 the ideal choice for any discerning cyclist looking for the best.

Wind tunnel design

The lenticular profile of the Bora WTO 33 mm rims was designed and tested entirely inside the Campagnolo Innovation Center wind tunnel. 
Campagnolo engineers worked for a long time studying the optimal shape that would provide the best compromise in terms of aerodynamic penetration, stability even in crosswinds, and ability to drain water in case of rain.
The result of these tests is a Campagnolo-patented lenticular profile that minimizes drag and maximizes wheel handling. The Bora WTOs boast excellent aerodynamic performance both on the flat and downhill.

Ultra-wide and rigid rims

At 33 mm wide, the rims of the Bora WTO 33 are in the segment of "ultra-wide" wheels that have revolutionized the way road wheels are designed in recent years.
The advantages of wide rims such as 33 mm rims are many. First, they increase the lateral stiffness of the wheel, providing superior responsiveness and steering precision. In addition, they allow low inflation pressures to be used, benefiting comfort and grip on rough road surfaces. 
Finally, wide rims optimize aerodynamics by creating a more air-penetrating profile.

Carbon and LCP resin technology

For the construction of the circles, Campagnolo uses only high-modulus carbon fiber (HM) and LCP (Liquid Crystal Polymer) resin. These are the highest quality composite materials that guarantee the best in stiffness-to-weight ratio.
The special LCP resin, patented by Campagnolo and used for the first time with C-LUX technology, makes rims up to 50% more resistant to impact and stress than standard carbides. In addition, HM carbon fiber gives excellent stiffness and responsiveness.

G3 Symmetric Technology

The profile of the Bora WTO rim follows the G3 Symmetric geometry developed by Campagnolo. This is a symmetrical design between the front and rear rims that perfectly balances the wheel.
The perfect symmetry between rims ensures uniform behavior of the bike in all situations. It also minimizes stress on the spokes, further increasing longevity and durability of the wheel over time.

Low weight

Despite the high torsional stiffness and generous rim width, the weight of the Bora WTO 33s remains quite low. We speak of only 1380 grams for the complete set, lower than many competing models in the same category.
This is achieved through the use of HM carbon fiber, the low weight of the hubs (just 166 grams front and 315 grams rear) and the excellent equalization of stress on the spokes. The Bora WTO 33s ensure true racing wheel performance while maintaining a reasonable weight.

Excellence made in Italy

Like all Campagnolo products, Bora WTOs are designed, engineered and manufactured entirely in Campagnolo's factories in the province of Vicenza. 
It is the only manufacturer of high-performance wheels in the world that keeps know-how and production processes totally in-house at its Italian headquarters. 
This translates into higher and more consistent quality and performance standards than the competition. A pride of Made in Italy.

MoMag Technology

The unique MoMag technology is one of the innovations introduced by Campagnolo that revolutionized the world of wheels. Taking advantage of magnetic components built into the hubs, the spokes are literally attracted to the center of the wheel.
This results in perfect and long-lasting centering that does not require constant reconnection as in traditional systems. In addition, perfect tension holding further increases the longevity and performance of the wheel.

Ceramic USB Bearings

Another feather in the Bora WTO 33's cap are the ceramic USB bearings, a Campagnolo exclusive that ensures smooth rolling and instant responsiveness. 
Made from ultra-high-performance ceramic materials, these bearings are much smoother, stronger and more efficient than traditional steel models. They provide a significant improvement in stiffness, comfort and responsiveness of the wheel.

For whom are indicated

Due to their exceptional qualities, Bora WTO 33s are suitable for both road use and specific disciplines such as time trials. They represent the ideal choice for:
- Professional and amateur cyclists competing in granfondo and amateur races
- Enthusiasts seeking the best performance over long distances
- Chronoman who appreciate aerodynamic penetration
- Cyclists facing challenging climbs and technical descents
- Those who want the top Made in Italy technology for daily use

Bora maintenance and care

To preserve the outstanding performance of Bora WTO 33 wheels over time, proper periodic maintenance is necessary. 
Advice from Campagnolo experts is to clean rims periodically with mild soap and water, lubricate bearings every 6 months or so, and check spoke centering and tension once a year.
It is best to avoid high-pressure water jets and harsh cleaning agents. With meticulous care, Bora will last a long time while maintaining their potential.

When to change the Bora

The structure of Bora WTO 33s is designed to last several years even in heavy use, indicatively up to 50,000 km or more. 
Early signs that wheels need to be changed are: visibly worn rims, sudden wobble during rotation, abnormal noise, loss of spoke tension or play in bearings.
Better not to underestimate these alarm bells and replace the wheels as soon as their structural integrity is compromised. The new Bora will amaze you again with their outstanding performance.

When new Bora converge

For a discerning cyclist looking for the best, equipping their bike with a new set of Bora WTO 33s is always an advisable upgrade.
Reasons why it is worth investing in new Bora include:
- Desire to increase aerodynamic performance
- Desire to improve responsiveness and ride comfort 
- Existing wheel wear after thousands of miles
- Change of bike and need for appropriate wheels
- To reward yourself with the top Made in Italy technology
With their well-regarded design and unparalleled build quality, the new Bora will never disappoint expectations and will really make you feel the wind at your back.
