The C55A wheelset is a great set of wheels for use in mixed conditions – be it a triathlon, road race or a ride on your favourite route. At 55 mm deep and with an aero profile these wheels will have you speeding along like a greased horse in a vacuum. The shape of the rims allows you to slice through the wind and when there is a crosswind the shape also keeps things stable.
We have tuned these wheels absorb more road buzz resulting in a slightly more comfortable ride than straight up carbon wheels. This also means that you can ride longer and faster, while experiencing less fatigue.
Sure, you won’t see a lot of pro riders using full carbon wheels, but there are a couple of very good reasons to use carbon-alloy wheels. The first is that in wet conditions, an alloy surface offers much better braking capability than a carbon rim. Second, alloy is much better at dissipating heat than carbon fibre so on very long descents you may risk overheating pure carbon rims. Alloy rims can handle the heat, regardless of the length of the descent.
The C55A wheelset is a great choice for someone looking to upgrade to a faster set of wheels that can handle lots of different conditions and are durable enough to use every day. They also don't want to pay a hefty price for gaining more speed.
