Our innovative rim makes use of our unique UNI technology (Learn more about our UNI technology here).
The G45 wheelset uses a U-shaped rim which has the aerodynamic advantages of a road wheel. It’s 24mm inner rim width supports 700*30c-50c tires. This flexibility allows for road riding or trail riding. The G45 is truly a force to be reckoned with regardless of the riding you do. The glossy marble carbon fiber design gives the wheelset a unique and striking appearance.
The G45 wheelset includes a custom, high-end hub that uses a double-walled waterproof design. The hub flanges have been specifically designed to be simple and practical in form. This makes for easy cleaning of the hub after riding in muddy conditions.
As the hub uses premium ceramic bearings for less rolling resistance. Using these allows for a much longer service life as compared to steel bearings.
Drive G45 uses high modulus carbon fiber spokes. The wheels are 7% stiffer than a comparable wheelset using steel spokes. This difference in stiffness is immediately apparent when out for a ride. Carbon spokes are also three times more fatigue resistant than their steel counterparts. The loss of tension experienced riding steel spokes with long-term use can essentially be avoided.
The wheelset has flawlessly passed our 20,000km rough surface factory/laboratory tests which simulate gravel riding conditions. This far exceeds the en17406 test standard.
