Redefine Your Ride

The Élan Wide 50 was designed to offer the pinnacle in performance. Utilising high strength, super lightweight carbon spokes (2.6g each), our engineers have been able to create a wheelset that is incredibly lightweight, and incredibly responsive.

Due to the unique spoke design, our carbon spokes have significantly higher strength-to-weight ratio when compared to stainless steel spokes. The increased strength allows us to build more tension into the wheels for improved performance, but due to the mechanical properties of carbon spokes, road buzz is also reduced.

With 50mm rims on either end, the Élan's offer unparalleled level of performance when compared to rivals. These wheels are the go-to option for those looking for speed; they are deep enough to give you that boost when pressing on hard on the flats, light enough that they won't hold back on the hills and wide enough to allow you to corner hard, but with confidence! The Toroidal Wide+ profile gives you the option to have increased Aero benefits by simply changing tyres!

Weighing only 1,356g the Aero Wide 50s are exceptionally lightweight and pound-for-pound, feature amongst the best wheels out there. Partnered with lightning fast Ratchet Drive hubs, these wheels respond FAST, offering unrivalled levels of performance.

The Wide 19mm internal profile gives you the option to fit wide tyres for increased stability when cornering, and increased speed due to improved rolling resistance - especially when ran as tubeless.

Bearings

You choose! Bearings are an essential component of wheels and it's important your bearings perform as you want them to. All of our wheels come with a fast Endurance bearing as standard but we also offer a Race bearing for those racing or riding in drier weather. If you would prefer Race bearings, please tell us in the notes section when purchasing and your wheels will arrive with this standard.

Scribe Cycling Race Bearings
  • Endurance bearings: these bearings are fast and designed to stand the test of time, so you can ride as much as you want with confidence
  • Race bearings: incredibly fast, sealed, non-contact bearings. Spin up effortlessly and allow you to glide at speed (not recommended for long periods of wet riding.)

Spokes and Nipples

  • High strength, super lightweight UD carbon spokes (2.6g each)
  • Straight-pull for increased torsional strength
  • 21 hole front/24 hole rear
  • For nipples, we use Pillar Patented TG Lock square head so the nipples are locked into place

Quick Release (QR)

  • Super-light alloy QR
  • Alloy pivoted cam plate for smooth action, but with strong locking bind
  • Stainless steel springs for anti-rust (weather) protection

Weight limit: The upper combined weight limit (bike weight + rider weight + luggage) for these wheels is 105kg. If a rider is in excess of 90kg, we recommend regular wheel checks from an experienced bike mechanic.
