Technologies

Advanced Forged Composite Technology

A state-of-the-art high-pressure moulding process used to produce complex-shaped carbon fibre components creates a unique two-piece saddle frame that yields the perfect balance of support and comfort.

Aero Carbon Spokes

High tensile-strength CADEX aero carbon spokes minimize lateral flex for more efficient acceleration and climbing and feature a purpose designed aero shape offering excellent aerodynamic characteristics as well as superior stability in shifting winds, all at the lightest weight possible.

Asymmetrical Disc Profile

Unique asymmetrical disc profile augments structural balance.

CADEX Ceramic Bearings

Durable, ultra-hard ceramic bearings further increase hub rolling efficiency with lower rolling resistance and 1.5x smoother action than steel bearings.

Hookless Rim Design

Provides the best flow transition from the tyre to the sidewall of the rim, resulting in reduced aerodynamic loss when compared to standard hook bead rims, and featuring a continuous carbon fibre structure enhancing overall durability.

CADEX Integrated-Axle Front Hub

An integrated front hub design reinforces axle support and eliminates play by replacing the standard end cap, bearing and bushing interface with an integrated axle running the length of the hub. This increases thru-axle support and boosts the lateral stiffness of the entire structure.

CADEX Precision Reinforced Layup

CADEX precision reinforced layup places high tensile strength carbon fiber only where needed, creating a strong, stiff structure at minimal weight.

CADEX R-Drive Freehub System

With anodized hub internals to enhance durability and a redesigned anti-dust cover for maximum longevity, the R-Drive Freehub System offers a 60-point ratchet tooth and optimized spring design. The result is immediate, efficient power transmission and uncompromised reliability.

Custom-Tuned DBL Technology

Dynamic Balanced Lacing ensures spokes are set for optimal tension when under dynamic pedalling force versus when static, resulting in superior transmission stiffness and efficiency.

Exclusive Sync Ergonomics Components

CADEX-exclusive Sync Ergonomic components including arm rests, extensions and grips provide body, arm and high-hand support while allowing the rider to stay in the aero racing position over long hours.

Integrated Rail Design

Relieves pressure points by positioning the saddle rail connections to the base in an area that’s not a contact point for riders. The shape of the rails also helps dissipate road vibration, and by eliminating the overlapping joint area normally found on saddles, unnecessary weight is avoided.

Low-Friction Hub

Precision machined internals eliminate excessive bearing load, reduce bearing friction and minimise rolling resistance.

Integrated Hub Design

One-piece aero hub and spoke design, where CADEX Super Aero Carbon Spokes are seamlessly bonded straight into the aero hub flange, forming a one-piece structure with the hub. This integrated configuration hides the nipples into the rim, while ensuring independent tension tuneability.

CADEX One Piece Mold Manufacturing

One-piece, no-bond manufacturing utilizes high-grade carbon fiber and CADEX precision layup technique to eliminate the added weight and flex found in traditionally bonded bars.

Optimal Air Transition

21mm inner rim provides unparalleled aerodynamics through optimal air transition from tyre sidewall to wheel.

Lightweight Reactive Foam

Developed especially for use in CADEX saddles, this high-density EVA foam combines a durable lightweight structure with maximum rebound and vibration dampening characteristics.

Particle Flow Technology

Free-flowing, CADEX-specific ETPU particles, strategically placed in two separate pockets at the contact area, mould to the rider’s unique pelvic contact condition. This eases pressure points and distributes that pressure across a broader contact area for a firmer, more comfortable ride.

Precision Reinforced Lay-Up

High-tensile strength carbon fibre and high Tg resin is reinforced at the most crucial points for industry-leading stiffness, ride compliance and strength with no unnecessary weight.

CADEX R3-C40 Aero Hub

Aero optimized hub features 3rd generation CADEX Low-Friction internals with CADEX ceramic bearings and 40-tooth ratchet engagement.

CADEX R3-C48 Aero Hub

Precision machined 48 tooth ratchet hub with CADEX Ratchet Wave Spring offers ultra-fast engagement, reduces aerodynamic loss and virtually eliminates bearing load as ultra-smooth, low-rolling resistance CADEX ceramic bearings further reduce watt loss.

Race-Ready Integration

The unique chassis of the CADEX Tri frameset—a massive down tube with no top tube—included in the upper section of the down tube allows the rider to quickly and easily access nutrition while remaining in the most optimized riding position. A high-volume hydration reservoir in the lower down tube connects to an extended straw in the stem, and an integrated toolbox in the lower down tube holds a multi-tool, tire levers, CO2 inflator and patch kit.

Race Shield Puncture Protection

With an exclusive ultra-lightweight and cut-resistant Kevlar® material incorporated into the casing, Race Shield provides superior puncture protection without compromising speed or road feel.

Race Shield+ Puncture Protection

With an exclusive, ultra-lightweight and cut-resistant Kevlar material over the tire casing, Race Shield + provides 34% more puncture protection than our original Race Shield, with little sacrifice in acceleration and road feel.

In-mold Carbon Surface Graphic Technology

Advanced carbon molding technology allows fine rim surface finishing treatment directly within the mold, elminating the need for additional carbon treatment or decals.

RR-S AR Compound

Based on the original fast-rolling RR-S compound, the RR-S AR compound keeps the speed but adds more grip and increased durability for maximum confidence on rough and wet roads.

RR-S Compound

A state of the art silica-based tyre compound for elite riders who demand ultimate speed and grip. Compared to a standard road tyre compound, RR-S has significantly less rolling resistance and boasts markedly increased grip when cornering, especially in the wet.

240 TPI Supple Race Casing

240TPI Supple Race Casing strategically places layers only where needed, ensuring an exceptionally supple and comfortable ride. This design optimizes rolling efficiency, all while maintaining an impressively low weight.

CADEX Super Aero Carbon Spokes

Ultra-lightweight high tensile-strength CADEX aero carbon spokes minimize lateral flex for more efficient acceleration and climbing and feature a purpose designed aero shape offering class-leading aerodynamic characteristics as well as superior stability in shifting winds.

Super Aero Rim Shape

Super Aero Rim Shape features wider external dimensionsfor a maximum aerodynamic advantage in the most common wind directions.

Supple Race Casing (SRC)

Single-layer Supple Race Casing (SRC) delivers an incredibly supple and comfortable ride with superior rolling efficiency at a super low weight.

Ultralight Carbon Composite

Exclusive, state-of-the-art carbon composite produces a stiffer wheel structure at an exceptionally light weight for superior acceleration and speed.
