RIMS

At Elitewheels, we design our Marvel wheels to match the needs of recreational cyclists. As opposed to alloy rims found on most road bikes, Marvel wheels are stronger, stiffer, much more more aerodynamic and significantly lighter. In fact, wheels play the biggest role in aerodynamics on a bicycle. As opposed to reducing weight elsewhere, a lighter rim saves rotational weight, making for a more agile feel and faster accelerations.

Spokes

Marvel rim brake Spoke

SPOKES

Choosing the right spoke to build a wheel is essential. We specifically selected Pillar PA 1423 aero bladed spokes. They are cold forged making them strong, allowing them to be able to withstand over 300kgf of tension.

Optional Upgrade: (Sapim CX-Ray spokes) and (Pillar Wing 20) spokes can be substituted for an extra cost, saving more than 90 grams off the complete wheelset.

Hub

Marvel rim brake HUB

HUB

Marvel wheels feature high flange hubs which offer greater lateral stiffness, improving stability. Both the front and rear wheel hubs feature ceramic bearings with an extremely low coefficient of friction, saving you precious watts. The front hub uses 6803 ceramic bearings and the rear hub uses three 6803 bearings and one 6903 bearing. The larger the bearing, the better the rigidity.

Marvel wheels can also be upgraded to DT Swiss hubs upon request.

Marvel 50V Ceramic bearings

Marvel 50V Ceramic bearings

CERAMIC BEARINGS

The Marvel 50V’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 durability over standard size ones. The use of large mixed ceramic bearings will allow you to have a more efficient bike, saving you precious watts.

Brake surface

BRAKE SURFACE

The Marvel 50V uses a blend of 270 ℃, high-temperature resin, developed by Elitewheels, and Japanese Toray T800 carbon fiber for the brake surface. This heat resistance ensures excellent braking performance even on long, steep descents. The brake track also features laser-etched grooves to clear water away, giving safe, consistent braking in wet conditions.

TUBELESS IN MIND

All of our wheels are tubeless ready with tubeless rim tape pre-installed. Each rim features our unique tubeless R-angle design, allowing for easier mounting. To make mounting tubeless tires even easier, rims are designed with bead seat retention ridges making inflation possible with just a floor pump.

    I was a little disappointed at the price as they appeared a real bargain but checked to find its USD not AUD so, ended up with the Marvel 50V. Absolutely stoked with them though. Strava reveals as many as 86 Achievements on a 90km ride, over 50 of them being PB’s. So, although the effort is the same I’m faster by far. A friend was so jealous as he struggled to keep up, he’s now ordered a pair. Can thoroughly recommend them, but now I wonder what if I’d brought the upper tier wheels?

      Hi Robin. Thank you for your feedback. We apologize for the confusion. At the moment, we only list our wheel prices in USD. It is nice to hear that the wheels have been an upgrade and that you are getting new PBs and achievements on Strava. The most notable difference with the Drive wheels is that they are lighter especially at the rims where it matters most on a wheelset. This matters most when accelerating and climbing. Thanks again, and happy riding!

    Just purchased a set of the 60v and these wheels are beyond a bargain. So good I ordered a set of 50v today.
    Zipp 303 and 202 are hanging up with bad freewheel hubs only 2 years old. I’m saving my money sticking with elites.
