The ELEMENTAL series from Wheelscience has 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 the wheel, nothing has been left to chance.
The U-Tech rim performs incredibly well at all wind angles, the varying 25-27mm rim profile 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 fail-safe stopping ability in all conditions, hot and 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 brakes.
We offer a full range of disc brakes 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
Hubs 10/11s compatible.
