WE CAN HANDLE THE HEAT...
(ACTUALLY WE GUARANTEE IT)
Why has it taken us so long to release a road wheel?
The answer lies in the number one issue plaguing the carbon rim brake clincher rim. ~HEAT~
All brakes generate heat. Not an issue with disc brakes, rim brakes are a bit of a different story though. Carbon rims are made from carbon fibre, and epoxy resin. And when epoxy resin gets hot, it melts! Add to that a tyre full of approximately 100 psi of air, that is also getting hot and increasing the pressure on the wall of the rim, and you have created quite a challenge.
For us, near enough is not good enough! Our rims now use a resin with such heat resistance it is a challenge to get them up to curing temperature! Each rim takes around 5 times longer to cure than our MTB rim.
We guarantee the braking surface of our rims will not deform from excessive heat. EVER!
(under normal circumstances within intended usage of course)
AND ROLL, AND ROLL, AND ROLL...
Our new Zelvy road hub stays true to our core values of performance and quality to improve your riding experience. These hubs look and perform like hubs that normally cost more than our entire wheelset!
MAKE THEM YOURS
Choose your rim profile, your decal colour and order
(Allow approximately 10 - 14 days for us to build your wheels).
AERO PROFILE, TUBELESS READY.
Just like our MTB and BMX rims, our road rims are also tubeless ready. A breeze to mount tyres even with tubes.
NICE AND WIDE
With an Internal width of 17.5mm ready for 25 or even 28c tyres. 25mm wide at the brake pad, bulging out to 28.5mm at the widest point. Modern teardrop shape slices the wind, and steers great in a cross winds.
Look carefully at our rim brake rim and you are sure to notice the blood red hue of the high temp resin hiding our new filament wound rim design
HOW DO WE DO IT?
The price is good isn't it!?
But that doesn't mean we have compromised the quality. So how do we do it? We sell straight from us, straight to you. Eliminating the 20% or 30% the retailer takes, and the other 20% to 30% the distributor takes too.
Our outstanding warranty is testament to the quality of our road wheels. If you want to pay more, please let us know :)
WE GOT YOUR BACK
These wheels come standard with our 2 year warranty.

Sold my Enve 6.7 race wheels (road) and bought the Zelvy 50mm road wheels. They are fantastic, the build quality is great, weight is best in class and the price awesome. The new Zelvy Hubs are smooth and fast. Well done guys, you have raised the bar again!
