The name Cosmic stands for the perfect balance of aerodynamics and lightweight - in other words, more speed on the flat and light-footed climbing characteristics.
And the Cosmic Elite takes these qualities to the next level, thanks to UST Road Tubeless technology. Without a tube, internal friction is reduced and you can ride with lower tyre pressure and less risk of punctures. This makes the wheel faster and smoother at the same time, even on bad roads.
It is specially designed for use with disc brakes - with straight steel aero spokes that are much stronger than conventional curved spokes. They are combined with our most stable hubs, with supple QRM bearings. The wind tunnel optimised rim profile is 20 mm high, so aero performance and crosswind stability are increased at the same time. The rim wall thickness hits the sweet spot with optimal stiffness, strength and lightness.
The drive forces are efficiently transmitted by the simultaneously light, supple, stiff and easy-to-maintain FTS-L freewheel. The HR hub can be easily converted from Shimano/Sram to Campagnolo cassettes.
Rolls faster and smoother - with less risk of punctures UST Road Tubeless technology reduces rolling resistance and increases speed by eliminating friction between tyre and inner tube. UST Road Tubeless technology allows you to ride with lower tyre pressure for a smoother ride and less risk of punctures. The patented UST system creates the perfect wheel and tyre unit - as well as particularly easy installation and tyre change.
Even more speed and efficiency for sprints and solo escapes. 20 mm high aero rim profile + Extremely flattened, straight aero spokes + Aerodynamic hub design.
Better braking control thanks to disc brakes. Disc brake specific rim profile + Front and rear hubs can be converted from 12 mm thru axle to quick release + Centre-lock version only. Only available in centre-lock version.
