  • Description

    The C55A is an aerodynamic road wheelset that remains stiff under power and comes equipped with an alloy braking surface, allowing you to stop with confidence in any place and any weather.  It is a great set of wheels for multiple uses, be it triathlon, road racing or casual rides.

    At 55 mm deep, the C55 wheels offer significant aero advantage, whilst the rim profile keeps things stable in heavy crosswinds. They are tuned to absorb more road buzz resulting in a slightly more comfortable ride than straight up carbon wheels. As a result you can ride longer and faster, while experiencing less fatigue.

    In wet conditions, an alloy surface offers much better braking capability than a fully carbon rim. The alloy is also much better at dissipating heat than carbon fibre, so it is safer on very long descents. The C55A wheelset is a great choice for someone looking to upgrade to a faster set of wheels that can handle lots of different conditions and are durable enough to use every day.

Great All-Around Aero Wheelset

Those looking for aero benefits at an entry level price will love these wheels. The deep rim has noticeable effect on the road, while the weight is competitive with higher priced wheels at this depth. At 1765g, they are lighter than shallow stock alloy rims and have been great for climbing and descending. I live in the Rocky Mountains and have never second guessed using these wheels for long, 6000ft+ climbs. Lighter riders will definitely feel strong side winds, but they handle well. Spoke tension was even and tight all around the wheels straight out of the box and have not needed servicing. There is some flex and slight brake rub on the rear wheel when powering up very steep (+10%) slopes. The rims fit wheels rather tightly which causes some effort to slip a new tire on, but holds well once mounted. I have used 25c tires with no problem on a Specialized Tarmac. The hubs are smooth, and again, have not needed servicing as of yet. Although, I live in a dry climate and they have not been used on much wet rides. For the depth and weight, they spin up nicely from a standing start and keep their momentum well. Overall, these wheels have been great and would be an excellent addition for someone looking for an all-around wheelset that can climb, descend and excel on the flats.
