Go aero with our super fast new carbon road wheelsets. Built for speed and strength these wheels will perform in all conditions including rain and wind.
Built around our super lightweight jra hubs, the rims feature an ultra flat braking surface for consistent, powerful braking in all conditions. The rims feature a tubeless profile for use with any road tubeless tyre, and are also equally at home with standard tyres and tubes. Wheels are taped ready for tubeless or standard tyres. Valves are available separately – please note that most of these rims require extra-long valves, and our long-base valves with extenders will work on these.
The rear wheels feature our 2:1 spoke lacing pattern with 16 spokes on the drive side, and 8 on the non-drive side. This solves the problem of uneven spoke tensions on rear wheels caused by the offset required for the cassette (wheel dish) and gives our 24-spoke wheels similar strength to conventionally laced 28 or 32 spoke wheels.
Spoke counts are either 20 or 24 for front wheels, and 24 with 2:1 pattern on the rear – see individual product options below. The 20h front hubs are our 66g “light” hub, while the 24-spoke front hubs are our ultra durable standard road front hub at 97g.
