More information to come, but in summary, the Velocite RT50 road tubeless wheels are a flagship wheelset designed using our in house CFD technology. You can read more about the details of the process in our earlier post. The end result is very low drag, and zero steering torque in side winds…and we have the research and the data to prove it 🙂

The Tenax R wheels also arrived and besides a new environmentally sealed, 6-pawl engagement hub the other highlight is the new super low weight of just 1515g.
