THE SECOND WHEEL, PERFECT FOR RAIN – IUF SLALOM – WHEEL WALK
Weather can change over the course of a race or a race weekend. Since track racing is an outdoor sport practiced in all seasons, you may encounter inclement weather. Be prepared. Rain, wind and cold temperatures can make the racing more fun and exciting, but it can also make everything more difficult.
The equipment of a high-level track racer consists of 2 wheels, a 26" and a 24".
In the best weather conditions (dry ground and clear weather) the 26" with its narrow and lightweight wheel, is more fluid and faster but more nervous.
The 24” MAD-Race is slightly slower but more stable and as soon as the conditions become a bit more difficult it increases its performance thanks to a safer driving. In fact, with wind and/or rain the 24” wheel achieves higher times and dominates the IUF slalom scene thanks to the features that make it unique: high grip and stability.
Make sure your equipment is up to you and your goals.
