Fully upgraded for 2019: 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 are handbuilt wheels of the highest order - utilising only the most highly regarded components: Incredibly light and strong Bitex hubs, 20/24 Sapim CX ray / and PSR 1422 Aero spokes and Alpina blue power self-locking ultra light nipples.
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 1350 gram mark
With standard hubs and PSR 1422 Aero spokes they weigh in at 1360 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 1310 grams!
Whilst you can get lighter road 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!
