Fully upgraded for 2018: Over the past 12 months we've been repeatedly asked to produce an even lighter, lightweight climbers sportive aero-wheelset. A Lightweight wheelset for those diagonals - but one that retains the aero & strength benefits we have become known for.
These wheels offer significant aero benefits on the flats and descents, but critically enable us to build a tough, high performance wheelset that can tip the scales at well below the 1400 gram mark
These are handbuilt wheels of the highest order - utilising only the most highly regarded components: Incredibly light and strong Bitex hubs, Sapim CX ray / Lazer spokes and Alpina blue power self-locking ultra light nipples.
With standard hubs and Lazer spokes they weigh in at 1370 grams for Campag and a tad more for Shimano/SRAM. By upgrading to Bitex Superlight hubs and CX Ray spokes you can reduce this to a stunningly light 1327 grams!
We also now offer a stunning stealth "graphite" rim upgrade option - The graphite anodising process gives the rim a total dark grey finish - including the brake tracks - adds about 45 grams but makes the wheels even tougher and looks fantastic of course!
Whilst you can get lighter wheels - we believe this wheelset represents the best balance between weight, strength and aero benefits. We would not want to go any lighter than this as one of these 3 elements would suffer if we did!
