Introducing the all NEW Carver Bikes c24 disc brake carbon tubular 700c wheelset. A new lightweight benchmark in the Carver carbon disc tubular wheel lineup. Light enough for climbing the hills on the road and strong enough for the demands of the CX course. Now with compatibility for the most modern disc brake equipped road and CX (and gravel, and gran fondo and well, you get it) bikes. Featuring a 24mm (c24) depth full carbon rim with matte UD carbon finish. (Sorry, no mixed depths front and rear.) These all new rims are wider than our previous version and are 23mm across the brake track. The wider rim provides more support and gluing area which translates into more comfort, more control and more stability. They are built with external nipples allowing for easy truing of the wheel while the tire is installed. A must have for tubular wheels during CX season. The wheels are laced 24 hole 2X front and rear using CN mac Aero 424 bladed black spokes (think Sapim CX Ray) and black anodized alloy nipples.
At the center of the Carver wheels are the all new, smooth rolling Novatec D771/D772 convertible hubs in black with alloy axles and an alloy freehub body. These hubs are fully convertible between 100mm QR, 12x100mm thru axle and 15x100 thru axle in the front and 10x135mm QR, 10x135 thru axle and 12x142 thru axle in the rear. (One configuration comes included with the each wheel, additional adaptors available separately). We can re-dish our rear wheels for you to accomodate Cannondale Ai offset 12x142 thru axle. For Specialized owners who have been left out in the cold with their abandonment of the SCS system we have you covered. We have a Novatec SCS compatible hub built specifically for us. It is ready for native SCS from the get go with no need for special derailleur hangers or modified cassettes. We also have replacement axles and end caps for this new hub that are compatible with non-SCS frames so your SCS wheels are not married to your SCS bike. It is based on the same platform as our existing hub so it uses all the same bearings and freehub parts. All hubs feature replaceable sealed cartridge bearings and a choice of Shimano/SRAM freehub body, SRAM XD 1x11/12 driver or SRAM XD-R 1x12 driver which also have replaceable sealed cartridge bearings. The wheels also come complete with black anodized skewers for QR configurations. (No thru axles are included for thru axle configurations.)
Along with the new matte UD finish we have also updated our graphics. We offer our new Carver script logo in gloss black for a modern, discrete look that we call ''ghost.'' If you desire a more color keyed look to pimp your ride we also have white, red, blue, orange, green and magenta. Sticker kits are available seperatly if you want to change your look down the road.
Designed for road or cyclocross our carbon wheels are a fast, stiff, performance option that can take you to the top of the podium on race day and still rack up the miles on training days. Team Bikeman riders have already ridden the Carver Bikes carbon wheelsets to podium finishes in races all around New England.
