Our new for 2019 Aero 50 disc brake hub might be one of the best, and lightest, carbon disc brake wheels on the market just now. A 50mm deep section wheel that will help you cut through the air. Our new Aero series is based upon our best-selling Fast and Light series, but we made one significant improvement.
Our FL disc series was constructed out of Toray T700 carbon fiber. We used T700 as it allowed us to build a stiff and strong wheel rim. A rim that would not flex when you put the power down. A wheelset that could secure tubeless tires safely. A rim that helped to smooth turbulent air.
We wanted to keep all these great features but save some weight. We looked at our layup to see if it could be improved. After a lot of work, we discovered that the best way to lose weight was to combine Toray T700 carbon fiber with T800 carbon fiber.
The mixing of the fibers allowed us to build a wheelset with all the great qualities of the FL series but save around 100g per wheelset. Who wouldn’t want to save 100g?
To go with our new Aero rim, we have a new disc brake hub. We have gone lighter with our sealed bearing hub as well. Our new D01 hub will take you further and longer before you need to service it and being of the sealed bearing variety that is very simple.
To lace our hub to our carbon fiber rim, we are using aero Sapim CX-Ray spokes. We can find no other spoke that combines the lightweight and stiff qualities of CX-Ray spokes.
These wheels have our two-year warranty. We stand behind our products.

Wide Rim Tech
25mm rim wide creates a better, more stable support, while the shape of the tire and rim together creates regular, stable air flow, in short, more aerodynamics, less attrition. provides an ideal basis for 25/28mm tires, the sizes currently popular.
2-Way Clincher Tubeless. Tubes or No-Tubes
Use either traditional tires with tubes, or tubeless tires without tubes. Tubeless tires can provide lower rolling resistance and better protection from punctures.
Sapim CX-RAY As light as a titanium spoke
The CX-Ray still receives the best results in fatigue testing of any spoke. The CX-Ray aero spoke combines excellent aerodynamics with low weight and great strength. Not only are they more aerodynamic, they also make wheels lighter and stronger. Its unique strength and flexibility make the CX-Ray suitable for most bicycle disciplines. CX-Ray spokes are used by top bike racers and triathletes around the world.
This wheelset has been certified and approved by the UCI (Union Cycliste Internationale), for use in UCI sanctioned road races.
