50mm Deep Tubular Carbon Wheels
50mm Deep Light Aero Carbon wheels.
At 1290 grams per pair in tubular rims, this wheelset will deliver all the high performance enjoyed by the pros on fast and rolling hils courses.
The fastest all-round carbon wheel profile, the 50mm depth wheels have become the standard in the pro peloton only to be replaced by lower profile for hilly courses and deeper profiles for time trials. These rims are strong and stiff due to the depth that gives a strong mechanical structure. Provides significant aero benefits and pairs well with aero frames. Slight increase in both weight and side wind sensitivity compared to the shallower profile rims.
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)
38mm rim depth with U-shape aero profile (25mm wide on the edge, 28mm at the widest point)
25mm wide tubular rim bed for optimal profile with wider tubulars (25 to 28mm) for more comfort and more road grip.
High Temperature resin and basalt braking surface. UD fiber rim surface
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.
- 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
RETURN & REFUND POLICY
Original product can be returned for refund 14 days from receipt in the original packaging including all accessories in unused condition.
The custormer will pay shipping cost for the return.
Our prices include shipping to most locations but as we cannot predict everything, we reserve the right not to ship and give you a full refund or contact you if we encounter unusual shipping costs or conditions for your location.
As bicycle lovers, we are an environmentally and cost conscious business and routinely use recycled shipping materials to ship brand new products. So if you receive a weird looking package (maybe with a well-known bike brand name) it is only because we recycle packaging. We do not believe you are buying our products to get a nice box nor that more trees should be cut or more oil should be pumped out of the ground for you to get a shiny new box that will most likely become more garbage immediately upon receipt.
See our warranty policy section for details including discussion about weight limits.
