Teams have 5 or more different sets of wheels they can use on any given stage. We went to see MTN-Qhubeka to find out how they choose which ones to run.

All MTN-Qhubeka’s wheels are supplied by North American company ENVE. They provide the team with various depths of rim, from shallow, lightweight 20mm to super-aero 80mm. Depending on the parcours and the weather conditions, riders will choose a deep wheel for flat, fast days where aerodynamics are important. On a mountainous stage, of which there are many in the Tour de France, the emphasis will be on a lighter wheel with less depth.
