Upon first glance, these look like another set of standard mid-depth wheels. A closer look reveals the painstaking efforts to eliminate drag—hidden nipples, shrouded hub flanges, an aerodynamically tuned hub shell, and a blunted rim profile all contribute to a deceptively slippery wheel. The ceramic bearings keep the wheels spinning fast and smooth, and they come ready to set up tubeless. The depth of these wheels keeps them light and less prone to white-knuckling every gust of wind—well suited for smaller riders or a hilly/windy course.
