Time trial wheels are coveted by any triathlon participant who wants to improve their personal best track times and enhance their training sessions in a meaningful way. There are many brands and styles available in this category, helping to reduce drag and negate the impact of side winds so that you can cut through the air and shave seconds off the clock. Zipp makes some of the most interesting and outlandish triathlon TT wheels on the market today. They are designed to be as light as possible so that you are not dragging any superfluous weight around with you during a session. This means that they have to be particularly slender and they make use of discs rather than spokes, which not only looks stylish but helps the wheel to perform at its peak when combined with the right tyre.
There are very light TT wheels available which use the more traditional spokes for support and these are typically at the more affordable end of the pricing scale, which means you can get improved triathlon performance without breaking the bank. Corima competes with Zipp in this area and it has a unique range which balances both spoke and disc designs, delivering a tri-spoked wheel which has large, sleek blades rather than metal rods, letting you get the best of both worlds. While the TT wheels will obviously have quite a niche level of appeal, the fact that so much time and technology has gone into their creation indicates that there is professional backing for these products.
