These wheels offer top-tier performance without the premium price, and they’re designed for disc brakes.

Lightweight marvels with optimal balance
In the world of cycling, weight is a crucial factor. The Explorator GCR40 wheelset weighs in at 1016 grams for the rear wheel and 852 grams for the front wheel, striking a harmonious balance. This optimal weight ensures a robust and responsive feel without unnecessary bulk. With these wheels, you’ll experience the perfect fusion of strength and performance, enabling you to push your limits with ease. Whether you’re a weekend warrior or a dedicated road training enthusiast, these wheels are your ideal choice to maximize the joy of cycling.

Rims that redefine durability
The heart of any wheelset lies in its rims, and the Explorator GCR40 doesn’t disappoint. Crafted from a specific Niobium alloy with a T10 heat treatment, these rims are ultra-strong and durable. The 40mm aero profile offers a 21mm inner width and a deep 9mm inner drop. This design not only makes installing difficult tires a breeze but also ensures a better fit for wider tires. The rims provide excellent stability for tires up to 40c. But what sets these wheels apart is that they come tubeless ready right out of the box. Say goodbye to tire setup hassles and hello to puncture-resistant, lower-rolling-resistance rides.
