World Class race wheels at World-beating prices, backed by a global lifetime warranty.  Yes, the price is for the wheelset, not just one wheel!

The VORTEX series are available in TRACK versions!

What did we do to be able to deliver you these wheels at such a great price? 

We examined every component of the ELEMENTAL wheel and looked at how we could make it less expensive without compromising quality:

Things we have changed:

  • The VORTEX rim is made from T700 carbon fiber instead of T800.
  • The VORTEX rims are a conventional V shape, making the molding process easier.
  • The VORTEX hubs, while using the ELEMENTAL shell, have sealed steel bearings instead of hybrid ceramic.

Things we have not changed:

  • We are still using Sapim secure lock nipples.
  • We are using the same brake surface technology.

Why choose the VORTEX series?

  • $ for $ we believe the VORTEX series are the best value for money, reliable race wheels you can buy.
  • From a performance standpoint, the only measurable difference between the VORTEX series and the ELEMENTAL series is in relation to crosswind handling and a slight weight difference.
  • The VORTEX series have a track option. The V Shape rim profile is better at handling the EXTREME power-related stresses of track racing.

The table below is for comparison purposes only, using the 50mm as an example. VORTEX rims are available in 38mm, 50mm, 60mm, and 88mm. See rim depth selection above.
