CTg Carbon Clincher Braking System
CTg is an innovative braking solution developed by the engineers of the Reynolds Composite Studio (RCS) to give riders utmost braking confidence in their wheels. The carbon fiber clincher may very well be the perfect wheel: it’s fast, light, and strong, with the added benefit of convenient-to-change tires. Yet there is a challenge in creating a carbon clincher that stands up to rough roads, stresses imparted by the rider, and heat build-up during extended braking. Designed as a fully integrated system, CTg (Cryogenic Glass Transition), is Reynolds’ patented carbon fiber rim-and-brake pad pairing that allows Reynolds wheels to run up to 53% cooler than standard (non CTg) rim-and-pad combinations. CTg ensures smooth, predictable braking performance, enhanced safety, and industry-leading dependability.
The CTg brake track unlike other brands that order off-the-shelf, Reynolds formulates its own proprietary carbon fiber laminates and specifies only the highest grades of resin systems for its rims. With this arsenal of differing carbon fiber lay-ups and high-performance resins, Reynolds engineers arrange laminates in optimized layers to create the CTg brake track. These layers extend into the rim, effectively creating a heat sink. Heat dissipates away from the surface, to be cooled by the passing air.
To Reynolds engineers, it was logical to develop brake pads in conjunction with their rims due to the critical role that both play in braking performance. Made of proprietary polymer compounds, Reynolds’ Cryo-Blue pads are designed to work specifically with the CTg brake track. Together, the combination of brake track and pads reduces rim temperatures by up to 220° F versus other manufacturers’ carbon-specific pads.
In the world of cycling, Reynolds stands as one of a handful of iconic brands. The legendary connection between Reynolds and cycling began in 1897 in Birmingham, England with the introduction of the company’s first lugged, steel tube sets. Reynolds has distinguished itself as a brand at the cutting edge of cycling technology ever since. From the prestigious 531/753/853 badges on lugged steel frames, to the revolutionary RZR line of Ultralight wheels, Reynolds’ historic contribution to precision, craftsmanship, and innovation in cycling takes a back seat to no one. Reynolds Cycling in Salt Lake City is a branch in the Reynolds family tree that has developed into one of the world’s pre-eminent carbon wheel manufacturers, and carries on the tradition of excellence in the global cycling industry. Reynolds has supplied carbon tubing for some of the finest bicycle brands; their components, forks and wheels can be found under many professional riders. In 2008 Reynolds joined forces with legendary carbon fibre engineer Paul Lew. Paul’s ideas and innovation have helped transform the way Reynolds manufactures carbon wheels, from layup to moulds. Today, the sole focus of Reynolds Cycling is to produce the best carbon wheels available. When you ride a Reynolds wheel you’re experiencing the heritage and pedigree so many champions have trusted to carry them to victory. For more than a century, the name Reynolds has stood for quality, design and performance in bicycle components because we’re renowned for creating products that deliver a cycling experience unlike any other.
