Fast wheels. Fast delivery

Excellent service. Immediate improvement in my speeds once I fitted these wheels, and braking is very good - at least in the dry (no intention of going out in the wet, I have other wheels for that). Also they look great. Very pleased.

Excellent all round wheel set- roll fast!

I had looked around at many of the mid depth aero wheels and with the filtered down tech from the NSW range (brake track) I was impressed with the spec. Upon arrival, the wheels were easy to fit and instantly felt an increase in speed on the flat and particularly downhill. I was concerned moving from shallow climbing rims that there may be a negative impact on climbing, but as these carry the speed in to the climbs you continue with momentum. Of course they won’t be as quick up the steeper climbs but I don’t feel the need to swap the wheels as they make up more time on the flat and downhills. The braking is very good, although not rode in the wet as yet. Overall, a great wheelset which extremely impressed with. The service from Mantel was spot on too!

Pros

  • Fast
  • Braking

Detailed product description

Showstopper
This exclusive technique resulted in better modulation and increased stopping power. After 2 years of prototyping, extensive testing, the addition of new materials, and the adaptation of existing production processes, Showstopper braking surface can be applied. Showstopper is a coupling of an embedded texture with silicon carbide particles in the resin surface. It increases the surface roughness of the brake track, providing the rider with more consistent and responsive braking.

ABLC SawTooth
The ABLC SawTooth design consists of a marked dimple profile of Zipp. It ensures that airflow is conducted along the surface of the rim for optimum aerodynamics. Also, the stability is improved which provides more comfort.
