It is tubeless ready and has the added benefit of having a 21mm internal rim width. The Drive 65D is for those who want a pro-level wheelset. It comes in at only 1460g for the pair.

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 65D was chosen to make the rim both aero as well as stable in windy conditions. The Drive 65D’s 21mm inner rim allows for wider tires to be run, allowing for more comfort and grip.

DRIVE 65D Spokes

DRIVE 65D SPOKES

CARBON SPOKES

What separates the Drive 65D 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 65D wheels Performance hub

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 65D wheelset Ceramic Bearings

Drive 40D ceramic bearings

CERAMIC BEARINGS

The 65D’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.

    I recently bought a pair of the 65D wheels with the special request that they come without any decals (I like the clean look). I contacted elitewheels about this and they were able to do this really easily – there was just an extra waiting time of a couple of weeks. Once I received them, the wheels were well packed and there was no damage. I set the wheels up as tubeless and as a first timer doing this, the process was super easy and I got them set up first time without issues. There was one minor issue when fitting the 12 speed cassette – for some reason the first attempt cog number 11 did not want to go on to the freehub. After taking everything on and off again, I was able to get it on. Not sure why this was the case… These wheels completed my new ICAN A9 build and it is a great looking package. The wheels ride really nicely and have no complaints about the product. Unfortunately I received the notice that the wheels had shipped after they already arrived. Not sure if others also experienced this or not. But 5 stars for the wheels
