Is this wheelset right for you?

The ZUUS Pro 50mm, our best selling wheelset, gives an ideal trade-off between the aerodynamics of deeper wheels, and the stability in windy conditions offer by shallower rims, such as the ZUUS Pro 38mm.

Road Racing

The ZUUS Pro 50mm is a superb wheel for hilly races and attack sprinting. The medium rim depth gives stable handling, and incredible aerodynamic advantage.

Triathlon

For high level triathlon racing we recommend higher rims depths such as the ZUUS Pro 60mm, but if you're looking for a wheelset offering more stability in windy conditions, the 50mm is a great choice.

Recreation

The ZUUS Pro 50mm is a great recreational wheelset, for those looking for the optimum trade off between lateral responsiveness, and aerodynamics.

*** The Pro 50mm lacks some of the aerodynamic advantage of our deeper rims. If you would be willing to compromise a bit of stability in windy conditions, you might prefer the ZUUS Pro 60mm which is a serious race wheel.

ULTRA WIDE AND LIGHT. THE ULTIMATE RIM-BRAKE RACE WHEELSET 

  • Rims | Toray T700/T800 carbon-fibre. Unidirectional sidewalls with 3K weave bed and spoke areas, Griptec basalt ceramic fibre brake-track for superb braking and durability. Tubeless-ready for even lower weight, rolling resistance and great puncture protection.

  • 1537g

 

FREE HUB BODY

Featuring a 3 multi-point pawls with 3 teeth each and a 48 tooth ratchet ring results in an impressively low 7.5 degree engagement angle and great resistance to wear, even under heavy loads. The Sprint freehub has strong individual pawl springs which engage quicker. There is also a Steel Spline Insert re-enforcement to provide superb durability against cassette sprocket damage, often seen on standard alloy freehub bodies.

 

HUBS

Precision machined straight pull hubs and spokes add strength and enhance power transfer meaning all your force pushes you forwards. Large 15mm diameter hub axles for sprinting and out-of-saddle climbing responsiveness. Circular dropout interface steps add extra stiffness.

 

RIMS

A strong and seriously wide yet lightweight carbon rim, with an aero-rounded profile for great handling and speed. The extra friction Griptec brake-track provides excellent braking, on even the longest descents and in the wet. The rim dimensions are wide at 27mm (19mm internal) which creates a great tyre profile, which results in superb grip and lower rolling resistance. 

 

RIM SURFACE

High TG resin provides reliable braking and durability even during longer descents. We push all our rims to their limits during lab testing of very high braking temp (200 C). The high temp resins used for our Griptec Braking surfaces and rims are designed to perform even with extremely high levels of braking heat build-up. We also ride test our rim brake wheels in the Alps to ensure they are put through their paces on long, steep and fast descents.

  

RIM BED

H-Lock is our tubeless-ready rim bed profile with up-kicks to the shoulders of the tubeless steps which help to create a great rim-well seal for first installation and easy sealing of tubeless tyres. The H-Lock profile also locks the beads in place more securely once seated. This is especially important when running lower pressures or riding off-road.

  

TYRES

At ZUUS, we enjoy the puncture resistance and grip benefits of tubeless on our every-day rides so we wanted to allow our customers the same option. Of course, all of our tubeless-ready wheels are designed to work perfectly with clincher tyres and inner tubes too.

 

BEARINGS

The heart of any wheel. Investing in them makes huge sense. We use high-grade precision sealed cartridge bearings by Japanese experts EZO, and this wheelset has low-friction seals to further reduce rolling resistance.

 

SPOKES

We chose the top-of-the-range Pillar Spoke Re-enforcement PSR XTRA models. These butted blade aero spokes provide a greater degree of elasticity and are lighter, this helps to maintain tensions longer and add fatigue resistance. PSR spokes feature the 2.2 width at the head, providing more material in this high stress area. So you can achieve precise tensioning, nipples are 14mm alloy, anodized and come with a hex head.

 

SKEWERS 

The little details matter, the ZUUS Race Season quick-release skewers use brass for the cam, which has self lubricating properties. We have also upgraded to stainless steel springs in order to prevent rusting.

 

WEIGHT 

The outcome of our attention to detail is an outstandingly light 1549gm wheelset, in a lightning fast, stiff aero package. We've enjoyed free wheeling in the pack whilst all others are pedaling, is it cheating?
