38mm Deep Light Aero Carbon wheels.
1220 grams per pair in tubular rims, this wheelset will deliver all the high performance enjoyed by the pros.
The best all-round carbon wheel depth, the first depth that gives a strong mechanical structure for the rim for excellent stiffness, gets a large portion of the maximum potential aero benefits without hardly any weight penalty or side wind sensitivity.
38mm rim depth with U-shape aero profile (25mm wide on the edge, 26mm at the widest point)
High Temperature resin and basalt braking surface. UD fiber rim surface
260grams/pair Ultralight Bitex hubset
66 grams RAF10 front hub with 20 front spokes.
194 grams RAR9 rear hub with 24 spokes, patented 6 pawls freehub working in two pairs for 48 engagement points per revolution for quick traction out of turns, and patented anti-bite stainless steel strip on Shimano compatible freehubs so the cassette will not dig into the alloy freehub.
Top Notch Sapim CX-Ray light and aero spokes (0.9mm deep, 2mm wide, 4.3 gram each with 0.4 gram 7075 alloy nipples). Arguably the best spoke in the industry (used by Zipp and other big brands)
Avalaible with the three industry freehub standards for the three main types of cassettes: Standard Shimano/SRAM, Campagnolo compatible or SRAM XD. Please specify on order, if you want something other than the default Shimano compatible freehub.
We highly recommend carbon wheels with tubular rims that offer the lightest weight, the use of high performance tubular tires including the ability to enjoy the low rolling resistance of the latex tubes used in top level tubulars and the rim strength of a tubular box rim structure (without the higher weight and weaker area of the lips found on clincher wheels. )
Contact us if you would like to only buy a front or a rear wheel or if you would like to mix different depths front and rear wheel. We can do that.
38mm Deep Tubular Carbon Wheels
- We highly recommend tubular rims that offer the lightest weight option, the use of high performance tubular tires including the ability to enjoy the low rolling resistance of latex tubes used in top level tubulars and the rim strength of a tubular box rim structure (without the higher weight and weaker area of the lips found on clincher wheels).
- Front: 20 radial spokes
- Rear: 12 spokes at 2-cross on drive side, 12 radial spokes on non drive side
- High Tg resins and basalt braking surfaces are important to withstand the heat from braking (see weight limitations in our warrantee section)
- Modern carbon wheels and frames should be best used with 25 to 28mm tires or tubulars
