Carbon fiber composites currently offer the best weight, stiffness, durability and ease of use parameters out of all other materials available for bicycle component manufacturing. Composite literally means made of several materials – in this case carbon fibers, and resin.
Vulcan is a leader in high end carbon fiber wheels. Wheels are the single most effective upgrade that can be made on your bike. Wind tunnel testing has shown that wheels can account for up to 30% of the overall wind resistance on your bike. No matter what type of riding you do, racing, touring, or recreational, our Vulcan Blade 50 mm deep dish full carbon wheels offer superior riding quality.
All Vulcan wheels come with a standard 1 year warranty and 50 gram quick release skewers
