"PERFORM AS WELL AS MY ENVES"

"Apart from looking fantastic they roll beautifully. I think perform as well as well as my Enve۪s which I paid double the money for the year before I found Craftworx. I rode them on Falls Creek 3 Peaks this year and they didn۪t miss a beat and helped get me a sub-9 goal. The braking surface and performance is excellent and one feels totally confident."

OUR MOST AERODYNAMIC CARBON ROAD WHEELS. It’s all about speed. These wheels are FAST. The 50mm carbon rims incorporate transition technology to cut through the air, reducing wind drag. The overall result is your wheels spin faster using less energy, so you can ride faster for longer. At 1482g they are light and fast up the hills as well as on the flats. The 25mm wide carbon rim is perfect for running 23mm, 25mm and 28mm road tyres allowing you to fine tune ride comfort and road handling.

RACE PROVEN, UCI APPROVED CARBON ROAD WHEELS. Our 50mm Aero Ultima carbon road wheelset cuts through the air with minimal wind drag. Designed to perform at an elite level. No fake promises, just results. World Class Triathlete Emma Jackson rode our Ultima C28 Carbon wheels to 2 World Cup Race Podiums in the last 3 months! Not everyone who rides our Ultima carbon wheels races, but it’s still comforting to know they are manufactured to, and exceed UCI testing requirements.

HIGH PERFORMANCE, LOW TEMPERATURE, BRAKING SURFACE. In wet or dry conditions, Ultima carbon wheels do not overheat and stop with ease. Our carbon rims and brake pads have been developed to resist heat build-up (the biggest single reason why carbon rims “melt or delaminate” under prolonged braking). Want proof, Emma Jackson, 4 months training in European Alps. 6,875km. Total elevation gains 76,200m. Longest descent 20 minutes. End result, zero wear on carbon rims, brake pad wear at 55%.

EVERYTHING YOU NEED IS IN THE BOX. Craftworx carbon brake pads, specially formulated for optimal braking performance in all weather and riding conditions. Super lightweight quick release skewers. Craftworx rim tapes. Wheel care instructions and of course, the wheels!

here's WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY

Purchased these wheels just recently after lengthy research and they lived up to high expectations, Previous reviews are right on the money, awesome wheels and service

- Lucy about her Ultima Alloy Wheels.

I think perform as well as well as my Enve’s which I paid double the money for the year before I found Craftworx. The braking surface and performance is excellent and one feels totally confident.

- Geoff J about his Ultima Blade 50 Carbon Wheels.

These are seriously good wheels. I thought the previous wheels I bought from Craftworx were good, and they were, but these are noticeably better. Lighter, smoother, stronger and faster. I just love 'em. They also look spectacular on the bike and have given it a unique look. They were noticed immediately by riders in the group.

- Kon about Ultima "Limited Edition" Alloy Wheels.

Fast delivery, well packaged. First impressions "Wow, they look fantastic". First ride, 1525m in elevation up Mt Buffalo (N.E Vic), super smooth, light and stiff, exactly what I wanted.

- Mark Staley about his Ultima Aero Alloy Wheels.

Wow, awesome wheels

So I purchased these wheels as they were on sale as I just wanted a cheap set of all rounders. Well didn't I get more than I thought. Low price maybe but big $$ performance. I cannot fault these wheels. If you are thinking of getting new wheels get some of these. Thanks Craftworx.

Shut up and take my money!

I have branded Zipps and generic Chinese carbon wheelsets. I wanted a 50mm carbon clincher I can use for fast bunch rides and maybe a crit race or ITT down the line. I researched and found CraftworX online. I rang them up first and the guys were very helpful answering my questions. The Ultima C50 was on special. I bought it and it came after 5 days. Packaging is superb with complete instructions including kool stop brakepads and skewers. Premium proper packaging too.

The wheelset carbon finish is superb. Brake track is of different colour but all contoured as a whole with that U shape aero wide rim design I am looking for.

The spoke tension is just right. No pinging, no noisy flex some other handmade wheelsets have. The spokes are stiff and I couldn’t flex it.

The wheelset is light. It’s just as good as my Zipp 606 in holding speed above 30-40kph even on training Gatorskin folding tyres.

The hubs are smooth rolling. Koolstop pads are what it is. Quality. I can’t comment on the skewers as I have Ti skewers I am using.

Summary: if you are on the fence if you should buy...BUY! Buy deep, buy now!

Silky smooth, hold speed well

As great as they looked unspoiled, the time came when I had to use them. Very comfortable, smooth ride, eating up the bumps. Hold speed very well

C50 magic

Have been cogitating on carbon wheels for a while and finally took the plunge with the CW C50 Aero. Maiden test ride and they didn't fail to impress...light, fast and they look super cool. Solid as a rock and no problems braking, which was my biggest concern. Highly recommend these Oz built beauties over the pricier foreign options.
