Our new for 2019 Aero 55 carbon fiber rim is the perfect counterpart to DT Swiss hubs. The Aero 55 is based on our best selling Fast and Light 55. The FL 55 is an ideal aero wheelset, and with the Aero 55, we made a few improvements to bring you market leading quality for an affordable price.
Our tubeless ready FL series is based around a modern blunt aero shape. We constructed this shape out of Toray T700 carbon fiber. The use of T700 allowed us to build you a light, strong, stiff, and aero wheelset. For the Aero series, we wanted to make that lightweight a little bit lighter.
To make the FL lighter but keep it strong and stiff we had to use a mix of Toray T700 and T800 carbon fiber cloth. The combination of these fibers allowed us to save around 100g per wheelset while still keeping our aero shape stiff and strong.
We also did a little bit of work to the brake track. Our FL series have a brake track that can cope with up to 240°. For our new Aero series, we took that up to 300°. You won't need to fear Alpine descents on our Aero 55.
To go with our Aero rim, you can pick from your choice of DT Swiss hubs. You can choose from the affordable 350S or the lighter 240S. Both hubs feature sealed bearings and DT Swiss’s Star Ratchet drive for an instant drive connection.
Your choice of DT Swiss hub will be laced to our carbon fiber rim using the aero Sapim CX-Ray spokes. Sapim has over 100 years of spoke building experience, and the CX-Ray is the pinnacle of this knowledge, a truly lightweight and stiff spoke.
The Aero 55 is offered with our two-year warranty to bring you peace of mind with your purchase.

Wide Rim Tech
25mm rim wide creates a better, more stable support, while the shape of the tire and rim together creates regular, stable air flow, in short, more aerodynamics, less attrition. provides an ideal basis for 25/28mm tires, the sizes currently popular.
2-Way Clincher Tubeless. Tubes or No-Tubes
Use either traditional tires with tubes, or tubeless tires without tubes. Tubeless tires can provide lower rolling resistance and better protection from punctures.
Sapim CX-RAY As light as a titanium spoke
The CX-Ray still receives the best results in fatigue testing of any spoke. The CX-Ray aero spoke combines excellent aerodynamics with low weight and great strength. Not only are they more aerodynamic, they also make wheels lighter and stronger. Its unique strength and flexibility make the CX-Ray suitable for most bicycle disciplines. CX-Ray spokes are used by top bike racers and triathletes around the world.
This wheelset has been certified and approved by the UCI (Union Cycliste Internationale), for use in UCI sanctioned road races.
