AERO ULTRA WING 50
Brand new for the 2022 season, our Aero Ultra Wing range combines our ultra light, aerodynamic rims with our new SP5 hubs and aero Wing spokes for improved speed, stiffness and handling.
50 Deep, 27 Wide, 18 Internal
Optimised for 25 & 28mm tyres
When it comes to saving weight on a set of wheels, the rims are the place to start - this is where you feel the greatest benefit in speed and handling. Our wheels are significantly lighter than those of our competitors.
This is because our rims are amongst the lightest available - not only do lighter rims improve acceleration and climbing performance - they also improve the handling and overall agility of the bike - in fact they bring the ride to life!
The 27mm wide toroidal profile is designed to cut through the air and handle well in crosswinds - much better than a straight sided u-profile rim.
Of course our rims are suitable for both tubeless tyres and clincher tyres with inner tubes – whichever you prefer. Although they're optimised for 25 and 28mm tyres you can happily go wider.
SPOKES & NIPPLES
For 2022 we’ve upgraded our spokes to the Pillar Wing 20 - the most aerodynamic spoke available. It's something we've only offered as a custom option in the past but this year we decided we wanted to make these wheels special as standard.
We've chosen to build them with Taper Groove Hex head nipples - self locking, allowing finer control than a square head nipple and providing extra spoke support over a standard nipple. Little things, but they all make a difference...
The rider weight limit on this wheel set is 110kg including the weight of bike and luggage.
Wheels are provided with tubeless rim tape fitted and carbon brake pads
