Drive G45 SS


Our innovative rim makes use of our unique UNI technology (Learn more about our UNI technology here).

The Drive G45 SS 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 gravel riding. The G45 SS 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.

DRIVE G45 SS Spoke


Sapim CX Ray spokes come standard. We take precautions to ensure that spoke windup is minimized so wheels don’t go out of true. After the initial truing, the wheel is sideloaded. This process is repeated again. The wheels are sideloaded a total of 16 times. We see this as an essential quality control standard. As a result, our wheels are guaranteed to stay within 0.2mm of true.



The Drive G45 SS 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 SS Bearings


Both the front and rear hubs of the Drive G45 SS use hybrid ceramic bearings. The efficiency of the ceramic bearings will make it so that you can save extra watts even after years of riding.
