HYPERDRIVE CARBON 50MM RIM WHEELSET 1399g

Unbeatable Speed And Stability On The Open Road.
THE MISSION

Introducing the Hyperdrive 50mm rim brake wheelset, a meticulously crafted masterpiece that embodies the perfect synthesis of aerodynamic efficiency, dynamic handling, and superior comfort. Redefining the expectations for high-performance road wheels, this wheelset transforms each ride into a thrilling race against the clock, all while ensuring an exceptionally comfortable journey.

Tailored for riders who demand the pinnacle from their equipment, this wheelset empowers you to maintain higher speeds with minimal air resistance, courtesy of its optimised 50mm depth. The new 26mm external width not only enhances lateral stability but also elevates cornering performance and ride comfort, allowing you to navigate turns with unmatched precision and smoothness.

This exceptional wheelset features Wing 20 spokes and achieves a remarkable weight reduction of over 300g compared to our previous version, with only a £100 price change. This leap in performance not only exceeds our previous standards but boldly outperforms all competitors in its class. The Hyperdrive 50mm wheelset doesn't just set a new benchmark; it obliterates the competition, establishing itself as the undisputed leader in the realm of high-performance road wheels.

HYPERDRIVE 50MM TECH SPECS
  • Rims | Superior 700c Design Crafted with passion and precision by our dedicated data team. Drawing inspiration from cutting-edge aerodynamic principles, the Hyperdrive 50mm showcases unparalleled stability, even in demanding wind conditions. This is achieved by using our Hyperdrive technology using a combination of its 17mm internal and 27 mm external width alongside a defining 50mm profile.
  • Bearings | The Heartbeat of Smoothness At the core of our wheelset's efficiency is key this is achieved by the Ldrag bearing system. Tested for its low-friction, it ensures that every ounce of your effort is transformed into forward motion. This isn’t just about speed it’s about redefining the riding experience. More miles and less maintenance allow for cheaper running costs for your performance addition.
  • Tyres | Tailored Flexibility The beauty of our Hyperdrive technology lies in its versatility. The rim is aerodynamically tailored for 25-30mm tyres. Additionally, its tubeless-ready design ensures compatibility with both clincher and tubeless tyres, offering riders a spectrum of choices.
  • Hubs | The Nexus of Performance Our Hyperdrive X rachet hubs are the epicentre of wheel performance. The straight-pull hub is a testament to this. Crafted with a robust low-drag freehub body, it perfectly balances power delivery and weight. From ensuring a firm grip through our circular dropout interface to enabling rapid 36-tooth engagement every aspect has been refined for peak performance.
  • Aero-Optimised Spokes In our quest for perfection, even the spokes were analysed. We chose Pillar wing extra light spokes (4.3g) known for their low drag profile ensuring that they cut through the air, minimising resistance and enhancing wheel performance.
  • Brake Surface | Weather Adaptive Understanding our customer's needs in different weather conditions the Hyperdrive Xtrack technology is designed for precision breaking in extreme heat or rain paired with our brake pads designed in-house you can perform in all riding conditions regardless of what the weather throws at you.

THE ADVANTAGES

When it comes to aerodynamics, every detail matters. The Hyperdrive 50mm wheelset is engineered to minimise drag, allowing you to maintain an aerodynamic tuck even in challenging wind conditions. This means you can stay in your power zone longer, making every pedal stroke count. In essence, you get the aerodynamic benefits without compromising control, ensuring you're at your best when it matters the most.

In the world of bike wheels, every little detail can make a difference. That's why we made the Hyperdrive 50mm wheelset even better than before. We used high-tech tools, like computer Fluid Dynamics ( CFD ), to make these wheels highly competitive in the current market. 

What does this mean for riders? Well, these wheels are designed to cut through the air with less drag. So, even when the wind isn’t on your side, you can keep a smooth and fast ride. 

We didn’t stop there. We took a good look at our older model, the 50mm Hyperdrive, and asked ourselves how we could make it even better. We also listened to feedback from people who ride our wheels every day and made changes based on what they told us. Tell us who's done that before! Customer-driven data that equals performance gains.

So, with the Hyperdrive 50mm wheelset, you get a wheel that’s not just fast but also built with care and attention to detail, making your rides even more enjoyable.

Large Flange

Our large flange rear hub is a pivotal component designed to optimise bike performance. The increased flange diameter significantly enhances wheel rigidity and strength, particularly beneficial for high-torque scenarios like climbing or sprinting. This design leads to a more efficient power transfer from the rider to the road, ensuring minimal energy loss. Additionally, the large flange facilitates shorter spoke lengths, which further contributes to wheel stiffness and durability, while also reducing rotational weight for quicker acceleration.
