Sometimes you need to think a little differently and that’s what we did when we were designing the C45. Most designers only care about how aerodynamic a wheel is but we wanted something that did more than this. Sure, we wanted an aerodynamic wheel, but we also wanted a wheel that was stiff and strong enough to take on roads that aren’t as smooth as glass. This wheelset is ready to take on the racecourse, the gravel road and everything in between.
At 45mm deep and 25mm wide, this wheel checks all the speed boxes. The height of the rim allows this wheel to slice through the air while the width gives you more room to run wider tyres making the ride more comfortable on rough roads. The shape of the rim also makes it very strong and extremely stiff so it is responsive under power from even the biggest riders. The Diametric Spoke Pattern helps to give the rim even more support and snappiness so when you’re out of the saddle and hammering, the C45 will stay stiff and propel you forward.
The C45 is built around the Hero hub, which has tall flanges and oversized ceramic TBT bearings. The shape of the Hero hub allows us to build a durable wheel while the bearings give this wheelset a smooth ride with low rolling resistance. But it isn’t all function – we packed all this function into a beautiful shell that compliments the looks of the rim.
If you’re looking for a carbon fibre wheel that’s a little different, both in style and function then you’ll find it all in the C45 wheelset. This beast isn’t all about performance in races – it excels in a wide variety of conditions making this a great all-round wheelset that can be used any day of the year.
