Dragging your feet to slow your bike down, Flinstones-style, works when you’re a kid and ride slowly, but when you’re screaming down a mountain and have cleats on your shoes, it’s not an effective method of slowing down. Fortunately, the tubeless-ready, carbon clincher C50D wheelset can get you up to speed, keep you there and is ready for disc brakes when you need to slow down.
This wheelset comes with our newest hubset, the D1, laced to provide maximum power transfer when accelerating and avoid twisting forces from the disc brakes. The hubs come equipped with our Premium bearings that are well sealed to prolong the life of the bearings. Since there isn’t a universal standard for disc brakes, we’ve made the end caps swappable so the wheels can be run with the most common sizes of frames and forks.
Riding a bike is more about going fast than stopping and that’s where the C50D shines. The rims have a very aerodynamic profile that helps you to slice through the air, even when you’re running wide tyres. Getting hit with a crosswind won’t cause instability thanks to the shape of the rim.
If you’re one of the people who is pushing the limits of what a road bike can do (or just want something that provides better stopping) then put a set of C50D wheels on your bikes and get outside and hit the road.
