Introducing the all NEW Carver Bikes disc brake carbon 700c wheelset. Light enough for climbing the hills on the road and strong enough for the demands of the CX course. Now with compatibility for the most modern disc brake equipped road and CX (and gravel, and gran fondo and well, you get it) bikes. Featuring your choice of either a 38mm (c38) or 50mm (c50) depth full carbon rim with matte UD carbon finish. (Sorry, no mixed depths front and rear.) These all new rims are wider than our previous version and are 23mm across the brake track. The wider rim provides more air volume which translates into more comfort, more control and more stability. They are built with external nipples allowing for easy truing of the wheel while the tire is installed. A must have for tubular wheels during CX season. The wheels are laced 24 hole 2X front and rear using DT Swiss Competition double butted black spokes with red anodized alloy Pillar nipples.
At the center of the Carver wheels are the all new, smooth rolling Novatec D771/D772 convertible hubs in black with alloy axles and an alloy freehub body. These hubs are fully convertible between 100mm QR and 15×100 thru axle in the front and 10x135mm QR and 12×142 thru axle in the rear. (One configuration comes included with the each wheel, additional adaptors available separately). The hubs feature replaceable sealed cartridge bearings and a choice of Shimano/SRAM freehub body or SRAM XD 1×11 driver which also have replaceable sealed cartridge bearings. The wheels also come complete with black anodized skewers for QR configurations. (No thru axles are included for thru axle configurations.)
Designed for road or cyclocross our carbon wheels are a fast, stiff, performance option that can take you to the top of the podium on race day and still rack up the miles on training days. Team Bikeman riders have already ridden the Carver Bikes carbon wheelsets to podium finishes in races all around New England.
