50mm deep wide carbon wheels for disc brake road and gravel bikes. Racing, TT or just recreational speed! Choice of 24/24 spokes or 28/28 spokes. Handbuilt in the UK by a professional wheelbuilder rather than by a machine.Rims are disc specific Carbonal 100% carbon fibre'U' shaped. Made from the latest Mitsubishi Toray T700 carbon fibre all the way through. The core is 3k carbon weave and the rims have a UD (plain matt black) outer layer. The rims are designed for modern wider tyres and are 28mm wide at the outside, 50mm deep aero section and 30mm wide at the mid-point in the section. The increased width gives a bigger contact area for the tyre on the road, improves the aero performance by being the same width as the now common 28mm tyre size and improves ride quality.
Suitable for road tyres from 25mm - 42mm width. Tubeless compatible with the correct rim tape and tubeless valve.We can fit these as an option. Choice of centrelock or 6 bolt disc hubs by Novatec. Standard road/MTB bike dimensions of 100mm wide with choice of QR, 9mm (6 bolt only), 12mm or 15mm fittings. 24 or 28 spoke holes, These are light and strong weighing only 136g to 156g depending in disc type and axle size. 2 x high quality Japanese sealed bearings. Standard disc brake dimensions of 135mm wide with choice of QR, 10x135TA (6 bolt only) or 12x142TA axles. 24 or 28 spoke holes. These lightweight hubs weigh 260g-275g depending on version. 4 x high quality Japanese sealed bearings. The freehub is Shimano/SRAM 11 speed road compatible and comes with an alloy spacer to allow use of 9/10 speed Shimano or SRAM cassettes. Campag and SRAM XD freehubs available as an option. The spokes are super high quality Belgian made silver Sapim CX Ray bladed spokes in silver fastened by silver Sapim 14mm alloy nipples.
CX Ray spokes are among the lightest spokes available but have great strength and aero properties. Unfortunately they are also rather expensive! Cheaper wheelsets built in the Far East generally use much cheaper and less efficient spokes.
The wheels are built using a 2x/2x pattern for strength and reliable power transmission. Total wheelset weight of the 24/24 spoke set pictured is around 1575g in QR form.(1550g with 12mm or 15mm thru axle). Please note that the wheels in the photos are a custom set and have the optional black spokes and black/red coloured spoke nipples - see below. All our wheels are handbuilt to the same high standards. The wheels are trued to within +or- 0.2mm and spokes uniformly tensioned to within 5% a side.
