The wheels of the triathlon bicycle are composed of a metal ring on which the tire is mounted, a central hub and spokes that connect the ring with the hub. The tire is usually made of rubber and inside the cover is the air chamber.
Depending on the number of spokes that the wheel has, it will be more or less light. The lighter the wheel, the faster it will be and the acceleration will be greater. In general, road bikes look for speed and therefore use light, thin wheels with a narrower tire than a normal bicycle. While on mountain bikes have to withstand heavy blows, since the terrain is more irregular and therefore the wheels are wider, heavier and with thicker tires .
There is a great variety of triathlon bike wheels , which can be adapted more depending on the terrain in which we have to move or the needs we have.
