Find out what a difference a great set of wheels makes to the feel and performance of a bike!
This full carbon ultra-light wheelset is built with our lightest hubs and our wider, more aerodynamic clincher rims for low rotational weight, fast acceleration, more shock/vibration dampening, and less pinch flats. They are strong and durable enough to be used off-road and over the roughest road surfaces and race courses, but also light enough to make all the difference when climbing hills! These type of wheels are what many of the Pro riders use for the climbing stages of the Tours.
Hubs: Our newest ‘FANATIC’ hubs are produced in conjunction with one of the finest hub manufacturers in the world and are made to our strict specifications using sealed Swiss precision bearings (2 for front, 4 for rear) with 6 engagement pawls for the rear hub (as opposed to the usual 3 that other companies use), straight pull AL6061 Aluminum flanges (black or red CNC Machined) with carbon center shell (BLING!), and patented O-Cricoid spring structure design. Shimano 10/11 speed, Sram, or Campagnolo options.
130mm Axel spacing. Hub Weight: 280 grams. Upgrade to Ceramic bearings for $90.
-Rims: 700c Clincher. 24mm height, 23mm width. Aero U-shape. Anti-high-temperature Basalt braking surface. Cosmetic finish options: 3k Matte, 3k Gloss, UD (Unidirectional, which looks like black paint) Goss or Matte clear coat.
The new 23mm wide rims provide a real performance advantage! Less rolling resistance, more comfortable ride, less chance of pinch flats, and are more aerodynamic with the new trend towards the use of wider tires (Road: 25mm instead of 23mm and 32 or 34mm Cyclocross Tires); which provides a shorter and wider contact patch of tire on the road (better traction, and less rolling resistance). With our specially formulated carbon-specific brake pads (included), the special Basalt braking surface on the rim dissipates heat very well, even on long descents under heavy braking in hot weather. They also offer very solid braking performance in rain and mud. Light rotational weight, fantastic aerodynamics, great in cross-winds, and carry the speed/momentum really well!
-Spokes: Pillar Aero 1420. Black color. Diameter: 2.0-2.2/0.9 -2.0mm, Length: 182-310m. Weight: 278 grams (64x260mm). Fatigue test/wheel revolutions: 3,500,000. Strength of middle section: 1600N/mm. Built with 20 spokes in front and 24 in rear(16-32H available), in our standard lacing pattern; radial front, radial rear non-drive side.
