2018 ELITE Series - R.55 - Clincher. (55mm)


The next generation "Elite" series TLR carbon clincher race wheels are improved in both performance and looks. 
Created using smooth UD weave carbon and embossed with discrete TLR decals, the wheels are one of the best looking items on the market.
To improve performance the wheels are fitted standard with quality DT Swiss Hubs

Elite series wheels can be further upgraded with Chris King hubs if required.
Contact us to discuss a custom set specked with the best hubs in the world.

The R.55 Elite wheels are 25mm wide following current cycle technology trends to provide the ultimate aerodynamic air flow over the side of the wheel.

The R.55 wheels being 55mm in rim depth are at a size which make them a great choice for either road or TT use.  This means for example, an irregular triathlete could use them for regular road riding/racing and their occasional triathlon.

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.
