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 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 40D and 50D were 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 their 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.
Drive Mixed Depth Wheel Bundle hub
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 rolling resistance. This is essential when using mixed ceramic bearings.
Drive Mixed Depth Wheel Bundle Ceramic Bearings
The 40D front hub uses two 6803 mixed ceramic bearings. The 50D 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.
