An aerodynamic undulating rim design
Outstanding stability in crosswinds
Elitewheels’ TRD Technology
BWT DISC 45 Rims
BWT wheels use both genuine T800 and T1000 Toray carbon fiber. Both types of fibers have different properties and strengths. The number of layers, type of carbon fiber, location as well as their direction have all been carefully chosen. The result of this design and complex manufacture is an exceptionally strong and lightweight wheel.
BWT’s unique undulating rim design is specifically designed to be as aerodynamic as possible. Research on similar undulating designs that take advantage of the Tubercle Effect have a shown reductions in drag by as much as 40%. The design has another benefit, which is to reduce the effect of crosswinds, giving the wheelset increased stability. Riders can feel confident in windy conditions like never before. The BWT DISC45’s 28mm outer rim width reduces rolling resistance, as tires on a wider rim roll faster.
The rim’s outer width of 28mm can accomodate a variety of tires ranging from 700*23C to 700*33C.
BWT DISC 45 Hub
The front and rear hubs are made of 7075 aluminum which is known for it’s high strength. The lightweight freehub uses a 36t ratchet system.
The front and rear hubs use Taiwanese TPI bearings. They are both quick release and thru-axle compatible. Both Shimano and SRAM XDR freebodys are available.
Standard use SAPIM CX RAY spokes，both front and rear wheels use 2x cross lacing，hand-built wheel，each spoke has 16 times tension release. The deflection of the wheel is guaranteed to be within 0.2mm.
For each pair of BWT wheels, we will give extra gifts: a pair of skewer,tubeless valve,tubeless rim tape and extra spokes.
BWT wheels use Elitewheels’ TRD (Tubeless R-angle Design).This design uses rounded edges to allow for effortless tire installation. All of our rims are tubeless compatible.
