Our 55mm carbon aero wheels in the Fast and light series are precisely what the stickers say they are; they are fast and light. We have gone with a simple process to name our products. You know exactly what you are getting from the name and because of that we don’t need a fancy advertising department; this brings our costs down, and we pass those savings over to you.
Our 55mm Fast and Light rim is a highly modern aero shape and will help you when drafting and riding fast solo. These wheel rims are constructed out of Toray T700 carbon fiber to allow us to build a light, stiff, strong, and affordable wheelset. When you first put these wheels on your bike it will be like you have turbocharged your steed, more importantly, you will not believe the price you have paid for this high-quality upgrade.
The wide shape of our Fast and Light rims is also designed to be tubeless ready. You can now jump up to 25 or 28mm tires, put some sealant in and ride away knowing that you will not have punctures and that you will be a lot faster. Drop a few psi as you do not need to worry about punctures and the comfort will be a revolution.
We have laced these rims to sealed bearing Novatec hubs using straight pull Sapim CX-Ray spoke; the market leader in quality light and stiff spokes. We used Novatec hubs as we have found them to be incredibly reliable and this has allowed us to offer this wheelset with a two-year guarantee.
