Front & rear wheelset

The Helikon wheelset range comes in four rim depths and is available in clincher and tubular tyre formats. With an option of a mid width 23mm or full width 25mm full carbon rims, these wheels work best with tyre widths of 22mm to 28mm for superior rolling resistance, rider comfort and an uncompromised aerodynamic performance. Braking is outstanding for wheels in this extralite category due to the use of high temperature TG epoxy resins, resistant to temperatures of up to 240 degrees. This enables a rider to tackle descents as well as the ascents, giving a confident approach to the hilliest of terrain and a thrilling overall experience.

Product Description

All Helikon wheelsets use rims which are superlight in comparison to most other brands within their relevant range of depths due to the manufacturing process and grades of materials used. Each rim is made with continuously wound carbon fibre strands using high glass transition temperature (TG) Epoxy resin and cured at higher temperatures than traditional rim manufacturing processes. The result is an entire rim that can withstand temperatures of up to 240 degrees max, allowing confident prolonged braking on the longest of mountain descents. This process also reduces minute air pockets within the rim structure increasing impact resistant strength. Our Helikon rims as with all Revolver models use blunt, rounded trailing edge profiles to deliver maximum overall aerodynamic performance in a wide range of yaw angles and build into a wheel with outstanding handling characteristics that simply can’t be achieved using traditional V shaped rims. Our set range are built onto one of the worlds lightest available hubsets, the Extralight Cyber. These hubs have a stella reputation amongst the lightweight purists and are used to build some of the very lightest wheelsets available by the worlds leading specialist brands. To lace these together we use in our opinion the best spoke available, Sapim’s CX Ray. The reputation of this spoke as the most aerodynamic available to the wheelbuilder is legendary. Add to this the fact that they’re, also one of the lightest and stiffest stainless steel spokes out there, it simply makes them the ultimate choice. Hidden alloy spoke nipples have been chosen to reduce weight and aerodynamic drag even further, completing the Helikon’s look and resulting in wheelsets from only 900g in weight. (see charts)
