CX Carbon Wheelset

NEW Design: c38 or c50 - Tubular or Clincher

Introducing the all NEW Carver Bikes carbon 700c wheelset. Light enough for climbing the hills on the road and strong enough for the demands of the CX course. 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 drive side, radial non-drive side on the rear and 20 hole radial on the front using DT Swiss Competition double butted black spokes with red anodized alloy Pillar nipples.

At the center of the Carver wheels are smooth rolling Novatec A291SB/F482SB hubs in black with alloy axles and alloy freehub body now updated with up to 11 speed cassette compatibility. The hubs feature replaceable sealed cartridge bearings and a choice of Campy or Shimano freehub bodies which also have replaceable sealed cartridge bearings. The wheels come complete with black anodized skewers and Shimano road style cork brake pad inserts for use with the carbon rim surface.

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.

Component Care

I’m getting an intermittent, random squeak from one or both wheels, how do I stop it?

This noise is the o-ring on the end caps of the hub dragging slightly during the rotation of the wheel. Simply remove, grease, and reinstall the o-ring to take care of the issue.

Why is my wheel out of true?

While we hand-finish our wheels before shipment and pack them well, it’s possible for a wheel to be knocked out of true during shipment, or go slightly out of true upon the gluing and inflation of tubular tires. Due to high spoke tensions from the factory, we recommend detensioning the wheel to true, rather than tensioning to true.
