DRIVE 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 50D was chosen to make the rim both aero as well as stable in windy conditions. The DRIVE 50D’s 21mm inner rim allows for wider tires to be run, allowing for more comfort and grip.

CARBON SPOKES

What separates the Drive 50D 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 40D performance hub

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 ceramic bearings

CERAMIC BEARINGS

The 50D’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.

  1. Andre Kristianto Boenadji

    Wheels is just amazing. i bought a mixed depth, and it just amazing. got 50D for the front wheel and 65D rear wheel. and it just fullfill my needs, since i need speed, but i also dont want to lose control when the wind blasts me, and im just a 57kg rider. rear wheels is really fast, downhill as well, it just has enough rotation mass to push me forward even faster on downhill, but not only downhill but also on the flat, its easier to keep a fast pace with the 65D even when i only have 50D front wheel. I can only recommend this wheels. and now im even considering a 40D wheels, since im a lightweight rider, just to make it even more perfect for me as a lightweight rider with lightweight bike and wheels.

      Ciao André,

      Grazie per aver dedicato del tempo per scrivere questa recensione. È bello che ti piacciano entrambe le ruote. Siamo felici di sapere che li trovi leggeri per le salite e abbastanza rigidi. I tubi in TPU rendono l’arrampicata ancora più piacevole. È bello vedere che sei soddisfacente e al livello delle migliori ruote disponibili.

      Hello Andre,

      Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We appreciate it. It seems like you made the right choice when it comes to rim depths. The 50D front and 65D rear is an excellent choice for most riding. For a light bike that has the edge when it comes to climbing, the 40D is definitely an optimal wheelset.

    I own a couple of standard wheelsets by Elitewheels for years, now it’s the top product line Drive for my new BMC Teammachine SLR.
    Impression after the first 1,000 k is superb. Quality and weight are excellent – I validated the trueing and it’s very good. Riding impressions are perfect so far.
    My only question mark stands behind the hubs – had one former freewheel break with Elite standard ws years ago under racing conditions and yes, the freewheel is noisy (I don’t care). Time will tell if the rear hub lasts.

      Hello. Thank you for sharing your experience. It is appreciated. They match your black BMC perfectly. Regarding the hub or the wheel in general, if you ever have any issues please reach out to us, and we will find a solution for you.

    Light, Fast, Reasonably priced set of wheels !
    I really cannot find any other disc wheels that have all the above.

    My only 2 criticism is that the hub is a little loud for my personal preferences. And that you need to be careful to avoid scratching the rim otherwise just use a black marker to hide the scars.

    Other than that, i’m a happy customer !
