ELITE Shadow - R.70 / R.80 TT Combo
The R.70/R.80 Elite TT Combo matches a 70mm R.70 front wheel with an 80mm R.80 to give a very high level of performance.
Please note: We have found for most riders that the 55mm wheel is the optimal choice for a front wheel matched to the 80mm rear. This provides great aerodynamic and centrifugal momentum advantage while being tolerant to windy conditions.
We recommend the R.70/R.80 combo to only very confident riders and suggest for smaller cyclists and for an all round better solution to use the R.55/R.80 combo.
The next generation "Elite" series TLR carbon race wheels are improved both in performance and looks.
For the ultimate in performance and quality the wheels are fitted standard with quality DT Swiss 240 SP Hubs. The high quality DT Swiss Hub has better rolling performance and improved aerodynamics thanks to hidden spoke termination.
ELITE wheels come in either rim brake or disk brake configuration. If you are racing with rim brakes and ever need to slow down, the high temperature brake track and high performance Swissstop brake pads do this safely for both you and your wheels.
ELITE wheels come with a choice of subtle outline logos or the stealthy looking Shadow logos.
ELITE series carbon clincher race wheels are 26mm wide. The 26mm wheel gives the option of fitting a 23mm, 25mm or 28mm tyre with each size having it's own advantages.
For most applications our recommendation is to go with a 23mm tyre as this size gives the optimal aerodynamic advantage. Additionally, when using this set-up the tyre has a flatter radius when fitted and this gives slightly more road contact for better grip and a much more solid feel on the road without sideways tyre "bulge" movement.
ELITE wheel sets are tubeless tyre compatible and come with optional plugs to cover spoke holes.
NOTE. Some older bike frames have problems fitting wider wheels so please check your frame before proceeding to purchase.
