Drive Mixed Depth Disc Brake

(2 customer reviews)

Having a mixed depth wheelset can improve the aerodynamics and handling of a bike. A shallower front wheel can make a bike easier to control as it is more resistant to crosswinds, while a deep section rear wheel can reduce aerodynamic drag. Mixed depth wheels are the favorite or many pro and experienced riders, as it can make for a more balanced ride.

Now we give riders the choice to customize their own wheelset, allowing for the front and rear wheel rim depths to be selected independently.

– Carbon Spoke Disc Brake Wheelset
– Brake Interface: Center Lock by default (6-bolt available on request when placing your order)
– Axle: Thru axle by default (quick release available on request when placing your order)

Note: It usually takes about 10-15 working days for us to finish the production of custom wheels. If you are in urgent need, please reach us through live chat or email service.

Drive Mixed Depth Wheel Bundle wheelset Rims

Drive Mixed Depth Wheel Bundle wheelset 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 in-house UNI carbon fiber, a specific ratio of T700 and T800 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 DB Mixed Depth wheels was chosen to make the rims aero as well as stable in windy conditions. The 21mm inner rim width can accommodate wider tires for those looking for more grip and comfort.

Drive Mixed Depth Wheel Bundle Carbon Spokes

What separates Drive wheels from most others is its use of high-modulus carbon spokes. The 3.3mm wide aero bladed spokes offer a 7% increase lateral response as compared to equivalent steel spokes. The spokes are mechanically secured, giving the benefit of being able to be trued and maintained just like regular spokes. Anti-loosening technology is also incorporated into the spoke nipples. The threads built into the nipples give it a double-locking effect.

To get the most out of carbon fiber spokes, we specifically designed the hubs with high flanges to further increase lateral stiffness and improve handling. Elitewheels manufactures its own hubs with Fanuc CNC machines, allowing for a tolerance of 0.02mm. This accuracy is important for bearing longevity and low rolling resistance.

Drive Mixed Depth Wheel Bundle Ceramic Bearings

The Drive front hub uses two 6803 mixed ceramic bearings. The Drive 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.

    These are fantastic wheels, super smooth! And very fast!, I ride a lot of flats and small rolling hills, I am 2to 3 mph faster with excellent feel in cross winds. If I had to do it again —I definitely WOULD!!

    Ma commande était les Drive 45,
    En plus de leurs performances, rigide tout en étant confortables, les roues sont sublimes et sont un excellent choix pour les cyclistes recherchant des roues légères, aérodynamiques, stables donnant un beau look au vélo.
    je recommande vivement !
