Profile Design  1/Fifty Full Carbon Clincher Wheelset

The Profile Design 1/Fifty is a full carbon aero wheelset, offering race-winning performance at the price of an alloy wheelset. Developed with extensive wind-tunnel testing, this aero wheelset provides crosswind stability, stiffness and handling for maximum performance out on the road. All this aero performance doesn't come at the cost of weight though, weighing just 1614 grams a set. With a slightly wider rim, you can also seat larger tyres for increased grip, comfort and speed. Laced to these carbon rims are the 6061-alloy hubs, which are filled with precision sealed cartridge bearings for a smooth spin that lasts. By hand building this wheelset using 20 Sapim® Race spokes on the front, and 24 on the rear, Profile Design have further maximised the strength and durability of this performance carbon wheelset.
