Drive 40mm disc brake carbon spoke wheelset Rims

Drive 40mm disc brake carbon spoke wheelset Rims


At Elitewheels, we design our Drive wheels to match the needs of professional riders. In order to deliver the best performance, we incorporate our own UNI carbon fiber, a specific ratio of T800 and T1000 carbon fiber (*Read more about UNI technology), making rims not only strong, but also exceptionally light and stiff. The U/V-shaped rim profile of the Drive 40D was chosen to make the rim both aero as well as stable in windy conditions. The Drive 40D’s 21mm inner rim allows for wider tires to be run, allowing for more comfort and grip.

Drive 40mm disc brake wheelset Carbon Spokes

Drive 40mm disc brake wheelset Carbon Spokes


What separates the Drive 40D from most other wheels is its use of high-modulus carbon spokes. They are 3.2mm wide aero bladed spokes, offering 7% more lateral stiffness as compared to equivalent steel spokes. The carbon spokes are mechanically secured, giving the benefit of being able to be trued and maintained just like regular steel spokes. Anti-loosening technology is also incorporated into the spoke nipples. The threads built into the nipples give them a double-locking effect.

Drive 40mm disc brake carbon spoke wheelset Performance hub

Drive 40D performance hub


To get the most out of carbon fiber spokes, we specifically designed the hub with high flanges to further increase lateral stiffness and improve handling. Elitewheels manufactures its own high precision hubs with Fanuc CNC machines, which can machine to tolerances of just 0.02mm. This not only allows for lower rolling resistance but also increases bearing longevity.

Drive 40D disc brake carbon spoke wheelset Ceramic Bearings

Drive 40D ceramic bearings


The 40D’s front hub uses two 6803 mixed ceramic bearings. The rear hub uses one 6903 and three 6803 mixed ceramic bearings. These large bearings offer better rigidity. The use of mixed ceramic bearings will allow you to have a more efficient bike, saving you precious watts.

    Très bonne roues, légèrent et de très bonne qualité. elles n’ont pas à rougir face d’autres roues deux ou trois fois plus chère. Seul bémol mais trop grave il manque les housses de transports.😁

      Bonjour. Merci d’avoir pris le temps d’examiner la paire de roues Drive 40D. C’est formidable que vous soyez satisfait de leur valeur et de leur qualité. Je m’excuse de ne pas fournir de sac à roulettes. Nous y réfléchirons pour l’avenir. Merci encore et bon vélo !

    Génial ! C’est ma deuxième paire de roue. Après les Drive50 disques je suis passé au 40. Toujours aussi fabuleuse. Rigide en latéral et confortable en vertical. Elles glissent sur la route sans bruit. Le vélo est sublimé par ses roues. Beaucoup plus adapté pour les ascensions, leur faible inertie rend l’effort plus lissé et le vélo plus réactif en relance. Vraiment bluffant ! Qualité de fabrication remarquable, pas de jeu, de voile, pas de bruit. Pesé à 1270g. J’ai fait 15000km avec mes 50 sans aucun souci (comme neuve, pas de voile ou de jeu).
