Description

First, we put these wheels on a strict diet of shut up, listen and put down the sandwich! We trimmed the rims down to 22mm and managed to bring home a set of wheels that measure just 1300 grams on the scales! We won’t deny it..... there were some tears involved. It was quite an emotional experience.....

You see, whenever you drop weight from a rim, you gain a disproportionate advantage because you are removing rotating weight where it creates the biggest effects. With less mass to accelerate at the rim, the wheels spin up easier, which saves you energy. If you live in a place that is particularly windy you’ll also appreciate the low profile because it is almost unaffected by crosswinds.

The C22A wheels may be light, but they are also durable enough for everyday use. If you ride these wheels in wet and rainy conditions, you don’t need to worry about your braking performance suffering.

Light wheels need light hubs and so we brought in our Arsenal hubs to do the job. The hubs got the shut up and listen diet treatment as well! We machined away all the excess material to drop the weight to only 288 grams per pair. The development team started to get all ‘mad scientist’ and wanted to go further with the machining to make them even lighter, but our pro test riders and ‘The Stache’ eventually had to step in and take away their toys for a while until they could behave. This is because at some point, with enough machining, you would end up with a ridiculously light hub, but it wouldn’t actually stand up to the abuse that pro riders put their gear through.

Finally, the wheels are put together by hand using Pillar 1422 aero spokes and laced in a Diametric Pattern to the hubs.

Overall, the C22A is an ideal wheelset for riders who are looking for a responsive wheelset that weighs almost as little as a carbon-rim wheelset, but at the same time they also want the braking performance and durability of aluminium. This wheelset will help you most when you’re climbing or when you want accelerate often.

All this probably explains why this is far and away our best-selling wheelset.
