Every rider is different, so the design approach for all Craftworx wheels is to look at a rider profile and design wheels that deliver performance, amazing ride quality and ride dynamics specifically tuned to match that profile.
We use different rim profiles, depths and components to achieve different dynamics that then deliver a wheel to suit the intended rider profile.
Riders with a little more mass have greater muscle mass too. This results in more power and lateral forces going into the bike. The deeper 30mm profile of the Ultima Aero creates a stiffer wheel than the SL and SSL that allows a heavier rider to benefits from more power transfer, stiffness when out of the saddle and cornering while maintaining compliance over the road surface.
This brings the perfect balance of ride dynamics to a rider 85-100kg.
Lighter riders can still use these wheels. Lighter riders will find them a little firmer than the Ultima SSL and SL so they would be suited to good road conditions and also higher average speeds.
The result is a wheel set that is dynamically balanced for riders up to 100kg.
All Craftworx wheels are hand built to order. We use high quality bladed spokes to to create the perfect balance between even spoke tension and ultimate strength without adding unnecessary weight.
The wheels provide excellent braking performance with a precision, twice machined braking surface. We offer two brake surface finishes with silver and black. The black finish will wear over time back to a silver, but is popular with its super clean and classy look when new, especially important for that first ride photo.
The wheels can be used with tubeless tyres or clincher tyres (with tubes) and they are supplied with the rim tape fitted.
These wheels are optimised for 25 and 28mm tyres but you can easily use down to 23mm tyres and when clearance allows tyres up to 32mm will also fit on these wheels.
Each rim brake wheelset comes with our Ultima Quick Release Skewers that weigh only 71 grams.
