Elemental Time Trial Wheels

(Jump to products)

Train and race faster with Wheelsciences Time Trial Wheels.

The Elemental™ series carbon wheelsets from Wheelscience have been developed with one thing in mind.  Uncompromising performance in all conditions. From the cutting-edge, race-proven U-Tech™ rim to the incorporation of ceramic bearings as standard in a TT wheelset, nothing has been left to chance.

The U-Tech™ rim performs incredibly well at all wind angles, the varying 25-27mm rim profile (28-29.5 in the Elemental X wheels) ensures the best possible handling and lowest possible drag at higher yaw angles. The combination of ceramic fibre brake surface inlays and high-temperature resin delivers failsafe-stopping ability in all conditions - hot or cold, wet or dry.

Our unique carbon layup means our rims are incredibly strong, so we can put our spokes under higher tensions, meaning stiffer, stronger wheels.  This translates into greater power transfer to the road from the rear wheel and amazingly responsive handling from the front.  Our wheels will never flex and cause annoying brake rub under acceleration.

At the heart of the wheel is the hub.  The standard Elemental™ Wheelscience hub mixes simplicity with high-end performance.  A freehub that gives almost instant engagement and hybrid ceramic bearings (ceramic balls matched with vacuum-degassed alloy races) give very low rolling resistance and incredibly long life.  Our hubs are fully serviceable. We use a 20/24 spoke count for the perfect balance of strength and weight on our standard hub, and 24/24 on our disc brake hubs.

We offer a full range of disc brake options on our wheels.

By popular demand, we offer DT Swiss 240 and DT Swiss 180 hubs as an option across our range of spoked wheels.

All wheels ship with brake pads, skewers and rim tape (clinchers).

Product Review

"A true game changer in the carbon wheel market!

I was searching for a set of training and race wheels for my new TT bike and came across Wheel Science. The website offers a lot of information and pictures to get a great understanding of the science within their products. This helped me tremendously as I want to understand the data behind the design. The day the wheels arrived I was first impressed with the quality of the packing. The wheels were surrounded in a cloud of air via high-end bubble wrap and secured tightly in the box. Once I pulled the wheels out my jaw dropped at how beautiful and lightweight they were. They arrived in perfect condition and included all the amenities to set them up. The finish of the carbon is impressive and once you experience your first mile on these hoops you’ll feel how special they truly are. Comparing them to my set of Zipp 808s I immediately could tell the difference with the Wheel Science wheels. Buttery smooth in the wind and easy to turn up the power and push them forward... they just respond with a spring to the pavement and you will fly! You will not be disappointed. What a game changer in a market full of hype and marketing, Wheel Science crushes the competition and at a price point that is truly remarkable!"
