One of the biggest bars of getting into triathlons and time trials is cost. That is why we created our Alpha 86 carbon fiber wheelset. These wheels will give both a standard road bike and a time trial/triathlon machine a considerable speed boost. They will help you slice through the air with ease. Even better is they will not take a huge slice out of your wallet.
To bring you an 86mm deep section aero wheel we have turned to Toray to use a mix of their carbon fibers. We use their T700 and T800 carbon fiber cloth. We use this mix as we have found it allows us to build you a stiff and strong set of wheels, that we can sculpt into a modern wide and blunt aero shape.
As well as doing this it allows us to keep the weight down. Because even if you are only after aero gains having a lighter set of wheels helps to make you feel better. To keep the wheelset comfortable, not something that is often said about 86mm deep rims, we have made sure that the rim is also tubeless ready.
As you will be flying along the road, we have also upgraded the brake track. Our new brake track can withstand temperatures of up to 300° from our old base of 240°.
We have gone with Novatec F428SB-SL, and A291SB-SL sealed bearing hubs and aero Pillar spokes to help keep the wheelset affordable. Both Pillar and Novatec, like ourselves, bring you high quality at a highly affordable price.

Wide Rim Tech
25mm rim wide creates a better, more stable support, while the shape of the tire and rim together creates regular, stable air flow, in short, more aerodynamics, less attrition. provides an ideal basis for 25/28mm tires, the sizes currently popular.
2-Way Clincher Tubeless. Tubes or No-Tubes
Use either traditional tires with tubes, or tubeless tires without tubes. Tubeless tires can provide lower rolling resistance and better protection from punctures.
This wheelset has been certified and approved by the UCI (Union Cycliste Internationale), for use in UCI sanctioned road races.
