First ridden – and raced – at our favourite velodrome, these are fast, aerodynamic wheels that will stand up to regular use and really fly when pushed hard.
We use DT’s excellent track hubs laced with Sapim CX-Ray spokes to 55mm deep carbon rims with a semi-toroidal shape to maximise aerodynamics while minimising susceptibility to cross-winds. Obviously not a problem on the average indoor track, but definitely a factor at Herne Hill Velodrome!
These wheels cost £895 and weigh in at just under 1600g. Oh, and they’re coincidentally tubeless-compatible, but please don’t do that on the track…!
