This is a revolutionary wheel set across time, which creates higher performance advantages of carbon wheels. It is the lightest wheel set among the carbon spoke wheel sets, with just 1300g for a pair of wheel set.
Drive 50D uses carbon spokes, the wheel set has more direct conductivity, which is the immediate response after the force is generated.
The more aerodynamic U/V rims bring about more comfortable riding experience.
Drive 50D, both front and rear hubs use S&S ceramic bearing, makes you go faster.
Drive 50mm disc brake carbon spoke wheelset Rims
Drive 50D uses a brand new look. The appearance of each rim was hand made and unique, with a different carbon fiber texture on each rim surface. Drive 50D has a rim height of 50mm, an inner width of 21mm and an outer width of 28mm. It was optimized again on the basis of the original U shape rim, the bottom was V-shaped appropriately so as to make a U/V shape. It can better reduce the lateral wind resistance, with the aid of CFD and wind tunnel testing, we can see that Drive 50D has 18% less steering torque compared to regular 50mm U shape rims, meaning Drive50D has better handling. 21mm inner width is compatible with wider outer tires, allowing you to ride under relatively low tire pressure, which increases shock absorption ability and brings you with better riding experience.
Meanwhile, Drive 50D uses next-generation UNI(*Read more about UNI technology) carbon fiber stacking technology inside the rims to remove the excess materials between the carbon spoke holes to achieve the lightest weight. Finally, combined with the latest UNI material technology, Drive 50D is the lightest and best climbing wheel set.
Drive aero 50mm disc brake wheelset Carbon Spokes
The Drive 50D uses carbon fiber spokes made of high-modulus carbon fiber wire. Carbon fiber spokes have higher rigidity and higher tensile strength, and the lateral response is 7% higher than that of the same steel spokes, and the high frequency vibration absorption capacity of carbon spokes is stronger than that of steel spokes. This is the biggest advantage of carbon spokes, not only light, the response is also more immediate when the force is generated. You can feel the direct driving power from the rear wheel when you pedal.
In the hand-woven wheel of the DRIVE DISC 50mm, the tension values for each spoke of the front and rear wheels were almost identical, reaching 145kgf.
Therefore, DRIVE DISC 50mm can provide better aerodynamics and excellent stability, allowing you to have an advantage in full sprint and high-power climbing.
Drive 50mm disc brake carbon spoke wheelset Performance hub
Drive’s hub is eye-catching, stylish silver is representative. front hub uses 6803 ceramic bearing, rear hub uses 6902 ceramic bearing. The larger the bearing, the better the rigidity. On the premise of ensuring the performance output of the hub, we try to reduce the weight of the hub body and minimize the rolling resistance.
Drive 50D front wheel uses 21 spokes, including 7 spokes on the drive side, 14 spokes on the non-drive side. The disc brake side needs more spokes to absorb the force of high speed braking so as to make the braking smoother. The rear wheel has 24 spokes, 16 spokes on the drive side and 8 spokes on the non-drive side, leaving more spokes for power transmission and make the rear wheel more prominent in power transmission.
Drive aero 50mm disc brake carbon spoke wheelset Ceramic Bearings
Ceramic bearings can make your speed faster. Both front and rear wheels of Drive use the ceramic bearings with very low friction coefficient. Ceramic bearing further increase the rim rolling efficiency with lower rolling resistance. At the same speed, you may have an obvious feeling that the low resistance ceramic bearing makes riding easier.
