Marvel 38D RIM
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.
Marvel 38D Spoke
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.
Marvel 38D Hub
To get the most out of this carbon wheelset, 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.
Marvel 38D Ceramic bearings
The Marvel 38D’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.
Marvel 38D TUBELESS IN MIND
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.
