Alloy tubular custom wheels with wide tubular rims.
We are offering a whole new line up of wheels. All Neuvatiion wheels will be custom built to order giving you more options than ever before.
All new hubs: We are knocking about 40 grams off the weight of our hub set (and about 20 grams off the weight of our skewers). The front hub comes in at about 75 grams and the rear at about 245 making them very competitive with the top level hubs currently available. They are also now Shimano/Sram 11,10,9&8 speed compatible.
Wide rims: All of our new wheels now come with the 22 mm wide welded rim. This is the tubular version for tubular tires.
Spokes: Stock on this model are the Sapim CX Ray spokes. 4.2 gram spokes that are not only the strongest in the world but also about the lightest. Used by more top level professional teams and wheel brands than any other spoke. Now you get to pick your color too.
Spoke Nipples: Nothing says custom more than custom nipple colors. The favorite seems to be red but you can pick from an assortment. We do only offer brass nipples on the DS (drive side) rear because we have found alloy nipples tend to crack. We also build with extremely high tension and the brass nipple does a much better job that alloy on the drive side rear (the highest tension of any part of the wheels).
Decal colors: Want to coordinate you wheels with frame, saddle, bar tape color? No problem. It adds a very nice touch that says “custom.” The decals are also somewhat subdued – quality is best whispered and not shouted.
Weight: The combined set weighs in at about 1310 grams. A very light set of wheels but also a very durable set. We’ve had riders well over 200 pounds use these as every day wheels with good success.
In summary, this is the best set of alloy tubular wheels we have ever offered being both stronger and lighter than any we have offered in the past. The wider rims also add a level of performance that was not available before their introduction. These are competitive with any stock or custom set of alloy clincher wheels you can buy anywhere.
