Describing the design and engineering of the CADEX 42 WheelSystem, Norman wrote: “The rims have the now-standard U-shaped profile, which leads to greater stability than the V-profile seen in first generation deep section carbon wheels. The rim’s carbon lay-up is designed to reduce material between the spoke holes. It’s a hookless bead design, helping to increase the contact area between the rim and tyre, shave some weight and provide a smoother tyre/rim interface.”
Out on the road, Norman found the combination of CADEX wheels and tires “certainly feels responsive under acceleration and when climbing.”
Norman also claimed that the wheels offered a discernible advantage over some other competitor wheels: “I found the CADEX 42 Disc wheels easy to handle in gusty conditions, without edginess” he wrote. “The wheels gave me a useful turn of speed over the (admittedly heavy) stock wheels on a Trek Emonda ALR.”
