DRIVE 40V Rims

DRIVE RIMS

A Elitewheels, we design our DRIVE wheels to match the needs of professional riders. In order to deliver the best, we incorporate our own UNI carbon fiber, a specific ratio of T800 and T1000 carbon fiber (*Read more about UNI technology), making it not only strong, but also especially light and stiff. The U/V-shaped rim profile of the DRIVE 40V was chosen to make the rim both aero as well as stable in windy conditions.

CARBON SPOKES

What separates the DRIVE 40V from most wheels is its use of high-modulus carbon spokes. They are 3.3mm wide aero bladed spokes, offering 7% more lateral response as compared to the 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 it a double-locking effect.

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, which are especially important when using ceramic bearings.

CERAMIC BEARINGS

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

BRAKE SURFACE

The Drive 40V uses a blend of 270 ℃, high-temperature resin developed by Elitewheels and Japan’s Toray T800 carbon fiber for the brake surface. To ensure excellent braking performance even on long descents in the rain, the brake track has laser-etched grooves to clear water off.

  1. DRIVE 40V ultra light weight wheelset review (verified owner)

    I got this wheelset to replace my standard aluminum wheels that came with my bike.
    I was looking for something lightweight and some aero gains without sacrifice to handling.
    I’ve done 500km so far on these wheels on wet and dry conditions.
    I’m no expert, but to me these wheels are very responsive as they are very light.
    You can immediately feel the difference from the first paddle stroke.
    Very stable even in the crosswinds as they are not too deep.
    Actual weight with rim tape on was 1272g on my scales.
    I don’t know about longevity yet as I haven’t had them long enough to say.
    100% would recommend to anyone looking to upgrade.
    No point wasting your money on something 2x or 3x the price.
