BUILD VERSIONS (Hub and Spoke Options)
Now in its sixth year of evolution - The 50UC continues to be one of the most popular wheelsets we produce and is an ideal upgrade for athletes seeking quality British handbuilt wheels on a sensible budget.
- The standard AEROLIGHT build features superb Italian Ambrosio, lightweight and resilient hubs and superlative PSR aero spokes. 1590 grams.
- If you go for the SUPERAEROLIGHT build at 1495 gram then you really are creating a wheelset that is superbly aero and extremely light too equipped with Bitex hubs and Sapim CX aero spokes - as well as emplying superbly durable 'All Season' components.
Aimed at riders who prefer an ultra modern rim profile - critically without going too wide to cause frame clearance issues! The handling characteristics and strength of modern U rims is superb - even in pretty serious crosswinds - especially when compared to the V-rims of only a few years ago.
Ar 25mm wide, it is optimised for more modern bikes and is ideal for tyres from 23mm to 40mm and beyond. Please make sure your frame can take this width rim if you go for this option - all modern bikes can but bikes over 10 years old we’d advise checking first. Contact us if you're not sure... we do like to help our customers get it right first time.
Perfect for running tyres at lower pressure, whether you choose clincher or TUBELESS tyre setup! And of course .......... far more aerodynamic and faster rolling than traditional hoops!
In terms of rim width we think we've really hit the sweet spot. We carefully explored all of the many possible widths that aero wheels are being developed in. We developed and continually honed our own testing protocols to this effect - and critically we looked at a whole raft of practical "real-world" issues too that many rim makers simply overlook.
The 40/50UC wheelsets are ideal for UK roads and descents in all but the hottest weathers. If you are intending to ride/race very long descents in hot weathers (such as alpine summer sportives) or just want a more familiar braking feel - you may want to look at our full-carbon filament wound wheels.. and please do read our page on safe braking and care for your carbon wheels HERE
