Elitewheels DRIVE 65D RIMS

Elitewheels DRIVE 65D 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



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


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


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 love the wheels, the 65D is of course heavier than the 50d and you need more effort to start them to turn. but once its turning especially when you go downhill or even when its flat, the wheels just keep turning as if they are keeping the momentum. which is so good on flats and for fast riding. i still really want to try the more shallow wheels since im a lightweight rider nad better on climb than on the flats. but still collecting and earning my money as a student, hopefully elite wheels will have a big sale soon!

      Hello Andre. Your Seka bike build looks nice. Thank you for sharing your experience with the wheels. The 40D is definitely the best wheel we offer for climbing. As for possibly getting a second wheelset, we will certainly have more sales in the future. Information on them will be available on our Instagram.

    The Drive 65D I bought two weeks ago and arrived so quickly. I checked the wheelsets and the quality looks perfect. I’m satisfied with them. The glossy marbling black rim finish has a good texture. and I am also satisfied with the weight. Since I just got the wheels installed, I haven’t had time to test riding yet, and I can’t wait to use it and try its performance in my next race.
    I would recommend this wheel without hesitation!
