Our lightweight and aerodynamic rim brake road wheelset.
For performance we recommend a shallower front to rear setup for optimal aero advantage and control; your back wheel can be deeper as it is anchored down by most of your body weight whereas your front wheel has less of this natural stability and needs to be more nimble and manoeuvrable in the air and sidewind.
If you’re a lighter rider and/or your races can get pretty gusty then we recommend the 45/55mm setup, if you’re confident to go deeper then the 55/65mm is for you.
The rims are made with premium Toray T700 carbon fiber and now with a new GROOVED 3K breaking surface with added graphene. The Graphene allows for faster heat reduction between braking but also reduces heat buildup in general. The Grooved track helps dissipate moisture between the brake pads and the rim in wet conditions as well as increasing braking friction (and thereby power) in the dry. They're brilliant.
so after placing your order we will be in touch with a couple of small questions about your weight and intended use, just to be sure the build is right for you (you might need a few more spokes or maybe even a few less)
And if you've ordered Hope hubs we're going to need to know which colour you'd like them to be!
If you're not sure which hubs to go for feel free to get in touch, we're very happy to talk through the options. And if you like a bit symmetry we can of course build these up as 45/45, 55/55 or 65/65mms, noooo stress.
Also if you have some other hubs in mind (DT 180s, Tune, Chris King, White Industries.. etc) again - just get in touch.
We also make custom built wheels, get in touch with your requirements.
We aim to reply to you within one working day.
