Want to make your road bike faster? Everyone wants to make their road bike faster, and that is why we have our own carbon fiber road wheelset with a Nova 40mm rim. You will be breaking those PBs and killing the chain gang with these wheels fitted to your road bike.
Our wheels feature our Nova 40mm deep rims; the name really does explain precisely what the rims are. As well as being light they are wide. Going wide allows you to fit wider tires and this is now being shown to be faster than fitting 23mm wide tires, so come and join the future.
Our rims are super stiff, and that is why we mate them to our 2:1 spoke ratio. This allows the drive side of your wheels to be much stiffer and have the non-drive side lighter. The best of both worlds. This combination and the fitted Sapim CX-Ray spokes mean that your wheels will not flex. We used the CX-Ray spokes as they are as light as titanium but stiffer than titanium.
This style of spoking when mixed with our sealed bearing hubs puts your wheels through less fatigue. Your wheels will now last longer. To do this our hub features an oversized flange on the drive side, the spokes here are then shorter and have less chance to twist. This is why the UCI has certified this wheelset as being usable amongst the pro ranks. Now you can have pro end equipment but without the pro price tag.
Wide Rim Tech
25mm rim wide creates a better, more stable support, while the shape of the tire and rim together creates regular, stable air flow, in short, more aerodynamics, less attrition. provides an ideal basis for 25/28mm tires, the sizes currently popular.
2-Way Clincher Tubeless. Tubes or No-Tubes
Use either traditional tires with tubes, or tubeless tires without tubes. Tubeless tires can provide lower rolling resistance and better protection from punctures.
2:1 Spoke Ratio Patent
Enhance the transfer of the athlete’s power more effective. Spoke tensions are balanced more evenly between drive and non-drive sides and the fatigue life of the rim, hub and spokes is lengthened.
Elegant Racing Patented Hub
Special spoke thru way is easier for maintaining, and the middle shape provides full carbon tube, make the hub lighter. wide flange design on the drive size offers better torsional stiffness.Thousands of riders all over the world on these hubs and they are great performers and super durable.
Oversize Flange Hub Design
The Oversize Flange was developed from the need to create a system to transmit every watt to the ground without dispersion, without having to add spokes or superstructures that increase weight.It increases dishing and enables spokes to be shortened. Doubling the spokes creates a balanced system that is excellent at transmitting torque.
Sapim CX-RAY As light as a titanium spoke
The CX-Ray still receives the best results in fatigue testing of any spoke. The CX-Ray aero spoke combines excellent aerodynamics with low weight and great strength. Not only are they more aerodynamic, they also make wheels lighter and stronger. Its unique strength and flexibility make the CX-Ray suitable for most bicycle disciplines. CX-Ray spokes are used by top bike racers and triathletes around the world.

Very nice and high quality carbon wheels. Lightweight, tubeless ready. Silky smooth ride. Excellent customer support
The wheels are legit and so far I have zero issues. They are lightweight and look nice on my bike. They have performed flawlessly and I would not hesitate in making another purchase. These wheels will be put through the ringer and I will update as the miles add up. So far about 125 miles on them. Paired them up with Continentals Grand Prix 4000's II 25mm. I like them very much thus far. You could spend way more money, or you can spend less on a very inexpensive great quality carbon wheel. Worth the money, plus they have a 2 year warranty for manufacturer defects, lifetime crash replacement program (discount for new wheels)
I've put about 150 miles on these. So far, so good. Came in at 1580g on my scale. Not bad for a 50mm carbon clincher
