Drive 50V Drive rims


A Elitewheels, we design our DRIVE wheels to match the needs of professional riders. In order to deliver the best, we incorporate our own UNI carbon fiber, a specific ratio of T800 and T1000 carbon fiber (*Read more about UNI technology), making it not only strong, but also especially light and stiff. The U/V-shaped rim profile of the DRIVE 50V was chosen to make the rim both aero as well as stable in windy conditions.

DRIVE 50V wheelset Carbon Spokes


What separates the DRIVE 50V from most wheels is its use of high-modulus carbon spokes. They are 3.3mm wide aero bladed spokes, offering 7% more lateral response as compared to the 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 it a double-locking effect.

DRIVE 50V wheelset 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, which are especially important when using ceramic bearings.

DRIVE 50V wheelset Ceramic Bearings


The 50V’s front hub uses two 6803 ceramic bearings. The rear hub uses one 6903 and three 6803 ceramic bearings. These large bearings offer better rigidity. The use of ceramic bearings will allow you to have a more efficient bike, saving you precious watts.

DRIVE 50V wheelset Brake surface

The Drive 50V uses a blend of 270 ℃, high-temperature resin developed by Elitewheels and Japan’s Toray T800 carbon fiber for the brake surface. To ensure excellent braking performance even on long descents in the rain, the brake track has laser-etched grooves to clear water off.
