Drive 50mm disc brake carbon spoke wheelset Rims

DRIVE RIMS

A 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 50D was chosen to make the rim both aero as well as stable in windy conditions. The DRIVE 50D’s 21mm inner rim allows for wider tires to be run, allowing for more comfort and grip.

Drive aero 50mm disc brake wheelset Carbon Spokes

CARBON SPOKES

What separates the Drive 50D from most other wheels is its use of high-modulus carbon spokes. They are 3.3mm 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 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 40D ceramic bearings

CERAMIC BEARINGS

The 50D’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.
