Not in original box, No wheelbags.

The WAKE 6560 is a wheel set of variable depth, with a maximum / minimum depth of 65 and 60mm.

This oscillating sinusoidal shape conveys the aerodynamic advantages of a deep 65mm rim with the enhanced stability of a shallower rim.

This is achieved by reducing buffeting as the trailing edge is continuously changing, which leads to a more aerodynamic wheel with improved stability.

The WAKE are notably faster than all the commonly used aero wheelsets and are particularly fast at lower (normal) yaw angles up to around 10o and the results of Wind Tunnel tests demonstrate the lowest overall drag figure for the Princeton wheels (PCW), with the considerably deeper Zipp 858 and the HED Jet 9+ the closest rivals.

More than that though, they are also lighter and stronger.

Their shape yields structural advantages too.

The wheel is stronger because each nipple is positioned at the highest point of the oscillation and so requires less carbon fibre in construction. In turn this results in a reduction in overall weight while still maintaining critical stiffness.

The WAKE are tubeless-ready and employ a holeless rim bed which does away with the need for tape - so less fuss all round.

That said, this is a secondary benefit as the holeless rim bed is primarily used to help reduce weight and increase stiffness as mentioned.
