Here at Carver we design functional products with an eye towards value driven performance.   Basically stuff we want to ride and at a price we can afford. To that end we design our wheels to be competitive in weight and performance as well as accessible to the privateer racer and everyday rider alike. We don’t forsake long term reliability for short term gain though. That is why we choose to use standard J-bend double butted spokes and standard external alloy nipples that can be found anywhere in the world on short notice should you find yourself needing a replacement. Our hubs also use industry standard sealed cartridge bearings that are user replaceable.   Carver Wheels – Have your cake and eat it too.
