Most of us don’t have the luxury of having multiple bikes (despite the n+1 rule) so we need something that works well in all conditions. The C38D clincher, disc brake ready wheel are the prefect wheels if you want one set that work for every place and element you ride in.
The development of the C38D wheelset started with a new hub called the D1. We ensured that the smooth rolling and long lasting Premium bearings were well protected since this wheelset is going to be used in bad conditions. Since there isn’t a standard road disc axle, the wheels come with adapters that ensure that they can be use with both quick release and thru axle systems. By using Pillar 1423 aero spokes, laced in a 2-cross pattern, the wheels are stiff under power, aerodynamically efficient at high speeds and comfortable on bad roads.
These wheels excel when conditions are mixed – hills, mountains, smooth tarmac, rough roads. Their mid-height and low weight allow them to both climb well and give a nice boost of speed you’re riding fast. They are tubeless ready and 25 mm wide allowing you to run wide tyres that give you more grip in corners and less rolling resistance so you can keep your speed high with less effort.
The C38D wheelset is ideal for riders looking for a disc brake wheelset that is light enough to take on hills, aerodynamic enough for high speeds and tough enough to handle the nastiest conditions you can throw at it.
