For the ultimate aerodynamic meet’s durability track wheels look no further. Our “Corner Slicer" wheels are ready for you to push your limits both on and off the track. Introducing the first tubeless ready track wheels.
We developed our “Corner Slicer” track wheels from the ground up for criterium racers and track riders, who need the best in aerodynamics with greater strength requirements. Perfectly suited to both crit racers and velodromes.
We developed our own “Slice” hubs for a number of reasons. We have found that whilst there are some great options on the market there are flaws with them all.
We wanted bearings that are optimized for track riding. This means that they are made to spin at speeds from 25km/h to 70km/h. This gives you very free spinning bearings without any binding. They still have extra dust seals to give you longer lasting bearings.
We also have wide flanges. Yes, not a sexy selling point but of massive importance. On track bikes, more of the force goes through the hubs. A bit like a disc brake except that one side of the hub has to do both. With wide flanges, more of the force is moved to the spokes and rim. This gives you a faster accelerating and braking wheelset. Also, when you first set off the rear wheel is put under more torque than a standard wheel. When was the last time you put your road bike in its hardest gear, then sprinted off from standing (besides training)? That is what you do on a track bike. In any case flex in the hub is the last thing you want.
Lastly, we have trimmed out the weight where it's not needed. All this gives you a hub that is fast, very strong, and light.
With 24 holes front and rear. This gives you the best front-wheel strength and rear-wheel rigidity.
Supplied with your choice of sprocket on the rear. These are dual fixed threading. Please contact us if you what a freewheel option.
With our “Defiance” rim we where out to do a couple of things differently to convention. With a lot of people riding their track bikes in places other than velodromes we where after a rim that let you do more than sweat on the boards.
We have come up with a light, very strong and aero rim. This gives you a perfect rim to do what you like with your bike. They are also tubeless ready!
30mm deep u shape give you the perfect combination for aerodynamics and weight. We have used these wheels to race fixed gear criteriums and track then headed off road to ride home. There is a brake track, but we have used a black anodise to cover it. If you use brake, it will wear off.
With 17mm internal rim width you can run your choice of tyre. This is a hooked rim so that you have more support for your tyres especially at higher pressure.
We use Sapim cx-ray spokes for these wheels. This gives you every aerodynamic advantage whist keeping the wheels super strong. Laced radially on the front and 2x on the rear. This reduces the front wheel drag and gives you a very stiff rear wheel to apply the power on. We use gold nipples to add a bit of colour

Great wheelset, Look the part and ride well. The brass spoke nipples light up as you ride. Great value wheelset.
Done over 3500 miles on these wheels, mainly off road and couriering in Scotland, with bikepacking trips including the badger divide. Initially I wasn't sure about the low spoke count, but was ensured they were bombproof and I can safely say now this is true. Super light wheels, super responsive handling, super quick, super strong, and super sleek. Still true as well.
So responsive and can't quite get over how light these are. Would definatly recomend
