GREAT ENTRY LEVEL WHEELSET 

HUBS: ZUUS branded Powerway R13 hubs (320g), alloy with sealed Enduro bearings. These hubs use a J-Bend spoke type. You can upgrade to Ceramic Hybrid bearings for £99.

SPOKES: Sapim Race J-Bend double butted round spokes. You can upgrade to Sapim CX-RAY bladed aero spokes for £99.

RIM: Japanese Toray T700 Carbon with a 3K weave braking surface, we coat the rim with an attractive extra carbon heat treated layer, guaranteed not to burn out and have a superior breaking performance in the wet and dry.

OUR BEST SELLING WHEELSET

HUBS: ZUUS uses top of the range branded BITEX 305 straight pull hubs (246g) which we can tension tighter than the AERO hubs therefore creating a faster more positive ride. The Bitex 305 free hubs have an Anti Bite system, extra steel splines have been applied to stop cassettes gouging, so no more ugly shredded free hub bodies, this also ensures a faster engagement. Another top feature of the BITEX 305 hub is that the free hub body has 6 pawl engagement instead of the usual 3 pawl; providing a super fast, positive engagement and a low click noise. On the hole the BITEX 305 hub is lighter and has more features than the acclaimed DT-SWISS 240 hub. You can upgrade to Ceramic Hybrid bearings for £99.

SPOKES: Sapim Race straight pull double butted round spokes. You can upgrade to Sapim CX-RAY bladed aero spokes for £99.

RIM: Japanese Toray T700 Carbon with a 3K weave braking surface, we coat the rim with an attractive extra carbon heat treated layer, guaranteed not to burn out and have a superior breaking performance in the wet and dry.

OUR TOP OF THE RANGE WHEELSET 

F.A.Q: THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE PRO AND THE PRO ELITE SL RANGE IS: CERAMIC HYBRID BEARINGS AND SAPIM CX-RAY SPOKES AS STANDARD.

HUBS: The same BITEX 305 hubs as the PRO range but with ZUUS Glide PRO ceramic hybrid bearings as standard. In test ceramic bearings spin six times longer than standard sealed bearings.

SPOKES: Sapim CX-RAY bladed aero spokes as standard.

RIM: Japanese Toray T700 Carbon with a 3K weave braking surface, we coat the rim with a extra carbon heat treated layer, guaranteed not to burn out and have a superior breaking performance in the wet and dry.

ZUUS WHEEL AERODYNAMICS

All our wheels share the same Aero 'Oval' rim shape proven to be the best performing in wind tunnel testing.

Strength, durability and aerodynamic performance all built into our wheelsets while maintaining a very low weight. Our rim supplier engineers understand all these factors and are constantly updating the designs to maximise performance.

We use an oval rim design favoured by the larger named brand manufacturers. Through intensive research and testing of numerous rim shapes, wind tunnel testing and in-depth analysis of real world wind conditions we have determined that this design offers the best aerodynamic performance. The initial design was based on the theory that the ineffective winds a rider experiences tend to fall within a lower yaw angle range than the 10-20 degrees.

The oval profile is designed to achieve optimal aerodynamic performance by reducing drag around the wheel in both frontal and cross wind conditions by creating a negative pressure section that compresses and speeds airflow over the rim, thus reducing drag while also increasing stability

The yaw angle is the calculated real wind angle when the speed of the actual wind (effective wind) and the wind speed produced by the rider (apparent wind) are taken into consideration.

More speed. We developed our Carbon Clinchers, concentrating not only on the front half of the wheel, but also the back half. Oval rim shapes were designed to smooth airflow coming off the tyre, and are tapered inward from the widest point of the bulge. This maintains more stability in windy conditions, far better than V-shaped rims.

RIMS

Made from super light, strong Japanese Toray T700 carbon with a 3K weave braking surface. Superior braking performance in both wet and dry conditions, no burnouts. 26mm wide (19mm internal) will fit 23, 25, 28, 32mm tube and tubeless types.

ZUUS 2-Way Tubeless Clincher Rims

Our rims are Clincher and Tubeless compatible so you have the option to run either tubed or tubeless tyres.

Use either traditional tyres with tubes, or tubeless tyres without tubes. Tubeless tyres can provide lower rolling resistance and better protection from punctures.

 There are a few distinct advantages to this:

1. Normally if you run a moderately low tire pressure (Under 100psi), you'll experience a noticeable increase in rolling resistance. A lot of this rolling resistance comes from friction between the tyre and the inner tube. The lower the pressure, the more the tube is stretching and moving in the tire as it rolls, creating friction and rolling resistance. By using a tubeless tyre, you can eliminate the increase in rolling resistance associated with lower tyre pressures.

2. With traditional clincher tyres and tubes, If you want to run a low tyre pressure (under 80psi), for cyclocross, grave grinding, or other situations needing increased traction, you increase the risk of pinch flats. With a tubeless setup including tubeless sealant, your tyre can self-heal small punctures without significant air loss. This means you can run low tyre pressures without the risk of pinch flats.

3. You can use either tubeless or clincher tyres, the choice is yours. Our rims are compatible with both. There is no disadvantage to a normal clincher tyre and tubed setup with this rim, only the advantage of the option to use tubeless tyres.

Tubes or No-Tubes - You Choose.
