    ritchey deep section pro tension

    i bought a front ritchey deep section pro wheel and i know the tension isn't right but i can't get it to the proper tension since i don't know what the proper tension is. i tried emailing ritchey but haven't gotten a response and the website doesn't list a number. so anyone happen to know what the proper tension is for this wheel (16 spoke) or a number for ritchey? thanks!

    I'd put 110 to 120 kgf on those spokes.

    That would be my guess too, but the 16h factor may alter that higher.

    Ritchey's rims are made by Zipp. Zipp recommends no more than 100kgf spoke tension
