Aero carbon drivewheel uses a 50mm deep rim to maximize aerodynamics.
Available in both TUBULAR and CLINCHER configurations.
Each wheel is handbuilt with matched spoke tensions using a tensionmeter.
The brake track is typically the "Achilles Heel" of a carbon rim due to heat build up (why carbon rims initially had aluminum brake tracks). This is especially a concern with handcycles due to all the braking energy being absorb by one rim (rather than two on a bicycle). Although more expensive, in order to guard against rim failure, during rim construction, C7 Concepts uses the highest temperature resin available.
Built with high quality Sapium or Pillar spokes and self-locking alloy nipples
The production version is pictured with the C7 SL hub, but is available in a variety of hub and spoke configurations.
