Kotavelo R42, 41mm Full Alloy wheelset

Finally here after 2 years in design and testing, you asked us for a lighter, faster, more aero wheelset to improve on the Bracciano which was previously Australia's best selling wheelset.  New for 2017, designed for and tested in Australia is the Kotavelo R42.

We've made the rim wider & lighter so that it can accomodate wider tyres and has a better aero transition from rim to tyre.  We kept the Japanese EZO bearings that are famous in our products, we kept standard, easy to find and replace spokes.  We removed some weight from the rim & hub by using better materials and machining.

The final outcome we are proud to say is one of the fastest & strongest wheels we have ever manufactured.

If you want to ride Aero wheels everyday of the week, this is the perfect wheelset.

The fantastic new Kotavelo R42 wheelset!

I have been running these for the last week after a descending incident at the TDU a couple weeks ago… I cannot rate them highly enough so far. (Feb 13 2018, 11:18 AM)
