Handbuilt around superlative matt black aero rims, This is our upgraders wheelset - simply swap off those factory-fitted wheels that stop your bike from flying ... and pop a set of these on!
The rims are handmade and hand-welded for us by craftsmen in Loria,Italy, with whom we’ve worked for almost 20 years.
This wheelset has a very specific place in our range (and in our hearts!). A semi deep section lightweight alloy wheel is the perfect "do-everything-wheelset" for multi-gradient triathlons, time trials and even sportives. Designed to run best with 25mm or 23mm tyres.
Light enough and comfortable enough to get you up those hills in good shape, (with silky smooth Japanese EZO bearings to help even more), and aero enough to gift you free-speed on the flats and the downhills.
At the same time these wheels have an additional benefit compared to carbon wheels: Their durability and strength.
If you can stretch the budget a little further we think thats a worthwhile upgrade. The upgrade version uses branded PSR aero spokes and Italian hubs. Saving a significant 100 grams at the same time!
