CADEX 65 Tubeless Wheels

All about aero

The CADEX 65 WheelSystem is for cyclists seeking maximum aero performance and stability without compromising on grams. Featuring a hookless rim design and aero carbon spokes to maximise aerodynamics in shifting winds and to significantly reduce overall weight, the CADEX 65 carbon wheels also employs a low-friction hub which drastically diminishes power loss.

Technologies

Aero Carbon Spokes

High tensile-strength CADEX aero carbon spokes minimize lateral flex for more efficient acceleration and climbing and feature a purpose designed aero shape offering excellent aerodynamic characteristics as well as superior stability in shifting winds, all at the lightest weight possible.

Custom-Tuned DBL Technology

Dynamic Balanced Lacing ensures spokes are set for optimal tension when under dynamic pedalling force versus when static, resulting in superior transmission stiffness and efficiency.

Hookless Rim Design

Provides the best flow transition from the tyre to the sidewall of the rim, resulting in reduced aerodynamic loss when compared to standard hook bead rims, and featuring a continuous carbon fibre structure enhancing overall durability.

Low-Friction Hub

Precision machined internals eliminate excessive bearing load, reduce bearing friction and minimise rolling resistance.

Precision Reinforced Lay-Up

High-tensile strength carbon fibre and high Tg resin is reinforced at the most crucial points for industry-leading stiffness, ride compliance and strength with no unnecessary weight.
