2018 ELITE Series - R.45 - UCI (45mm)



The next generation "Elite" series TLR carbon race wheels are improved both in performance and looks. 

The R.45 wheels feature our distinctive "Wasp" pattern carbon weave and are watermarked with our discrete TLR decals.

For the ultimate in performance and quality the wheels are fitted standard with quality DT Swiss 240 SP Hubs

The R.45 Elite wheels have a 45mm dish which has proven to be the best size for road riding / racing.  They are light, strong and fast.

Because this wheel set is the one most suited to racing, we chose it first to go through the UCI certification process.  Both the Clincher and Tubular R.45 models now have UCI certification.


The DT Swiss Hub has better rolling performance and improved aerodynamics thanks to hidden spoke termination and this lets you light it up on the course and if ever you need to slow down, the high temperature brake track and high performance Swissstop brake pads do this safely for both you and your wheels.

The versatility this combination provides makes this a very appealing solution at a reasonable price.

Elite wheel sets are tubless tyre compatible and come with optional plugs to cover spoke holes.
