DRIVE 45D Carbon Spokes

The workmanship of Drive 45D can be said to represent the highest level of Elitewheels, whether it is the inner and outer flatness of the rim, the lightness of the spokes, or the structure of the hub, they are all impeccable.
The subversive riding experience is the biggest feeling that Driver 45D carbon spoke wheels can bring to you.
The tensile rigidity of the carbon spokes increases the performance of the wheel set by 17%. The drive wheel set also uses ceramic bearings as a standard option.

DRIVE 45D Wheels

DRIVE 45D

FEATURE:

The DRIVE series is based on Elitewheels, and a more experienced technical development team has been created. The purpose is to create a more representative product and a more comprehensive product. At the same time, in order to repay the trust and expectations of Elitewheels’ loyal consumers. Thus created the brand-new DRIVE series.
The DRIVE 45D has 570g front wheels and 710g rear wheels. The wheel weight is only 1280g. Both the weight of the climbing wheel group and the height of the wind-breaking wheel group.
DRIVE uses Elitewheels’ UNI product technology to achieve such an extreme weight.*
Carbon fiber spokes have higher stiffness and higher tensile strength, the lateral response is 7% higher than that of equivalent steel spokes, and the high frequency vibration absorption capacity of carbon fiber spokes is stronger than that of steel spokes. It can provide better aerodynamics and excellent stability, giving you an advantage in full speed sprint and high-power climbing.
DRIVE series carbon spoke wheels, both front and rear hubs use S&S ceramic bearings, ceramic bearings further improve the wheel hub rolling efficiency and reduce rolling resistance. At the same time, there are bearing pre-tightening side covers on the non-drive side of the front and rear wheel hubs.

DRIVE RIMS

Drive 45D uses 45mm rim depth and 21mm inner width to be compatible with 700*25-700*38C tires. It is recommended to use 700*28C for the tire.

Drive 45D uses Elitewheels’ UNI product technology and uses high-strength Japanese Toray materials, with a material grade higher than T800 and between T800 and T1000. Compared with the ordinary T700 material, the hardness of Drive 45D has increased by 22%. Read more about UNI Technology.

At the same time, the Drive 45D uses a single-point complement strength design, leaving a 3mm carbon fiber stack at each spoke hole position, and reducing it to a 1mm carbon fiber stack at other positions.

Combining the two technologies, the rim weight of Drive 45D is only 390g. It laid the foundation for Drive 45D’s Ultralight.

CARBON SPOKES

Carbon fiber spokes have higher rigidity and higher tensile strength, and the lateral response is 7% higher than that of the same steel spokes, and the high frequency vibration absorption capacity of carbon spokes is stronger than that of steel spokes. Each spoke must pass the 400kgf standard tensile test before it can be used.

In the DRIVE DISC 40mm hand-built wheel, the tension value of each spoke of the front wheel and the rear wheel is almost the same, reaching 145kgf.

Therefore, DRIVE DISC 40mm can provide better aerodynamics and excellent stability, allowing you to have an advantage in full sprint and high-power climbing.

Drive carbon spokes are easy to disassemble, install and repair, just like regular spokes. It eliminates the problem that carbon spoke wheel set is difficult to maintain.

Drive 45mm disc brake carbon spoke wheelset Performance hub

PERFORMANCE HUB

The front and rear hubs use 6902 bearings. The larger the bearing, the better the rigidity. On the premise of ensuring the performance output of the hub, we try to reduce the weight on the hub body and minimize the rolling resistance.

DRIVE disc hub uses 21 spokes on the front wheel, 14 spokes on the drive side, and 7 spokes on the non-drive side. The rear hub has 24 spokes, 16 on the drive side and 8 on the non-drive side.

After 6 months of continuous design and continuous improvement, we have found the best geometric angle of the hub so that the spoke tension on the driving side is the same as the tension on the non-driving spoke side, which is very important. In this way, the stability of the wheels can be improved to a greater extent when entering a curve quickly.
