A good day on the bike usually involves a little bit of everything – hills, flat roads, cobbles, wind and sun. The C38 wheelset is the perfect companion because it will help you on any kind of road, in all situations thanks to its low weight, mid-height profile and great aerodynamics.
Riders who like hills or criterium racers who constantly have to accelerate their wheels will appreciate that these wheels weigh less than 1400 grams. But don’t worry about slowing down because we’ve used our highly heat-resistant TgX to build these wheels so you’ll get consistent braking, even on alpine descents. Thanks to their aerodynamic shape and 25mm Swiftedge, these wheels are fast when speeds go up and even when it gets windy, you’ll have full control.
Getting up to speed is made easier because we use our Dynamic Spoke Pattern and Sapim CX-Ray spokes to transfer more of your power to the wheels instead of it being lost to flex. The Sapim spokes do a great job of cutting down on road buzz so you’ll feel more comfortable, and faster at the end of a long ride.
Wheels aren’t all about rims and we pack plenty of technology into the rest of the wheel to ensure the wheel will keep rolling smoothly, day after day. These wheels roll on our super low weight Arsenal hubs that are precisely made thanks to our use of Weapons Grade Machining (WGM). Hidden away from the elements are our famously smooth-rolling TFT bearings.
If you’re looking for a wheel that can be used for everything, look no further. With a ton of technology packed into a light, aerodynamic package you’ll only have one problem – you can’t blame your wheels if you’re not the fastest rider.
