FIRST LOOK: cSixx 9 SERIES carbon road wheels

Located in Cape Town at the foot of Table Mountain and well known for their handmade carbon bike components cSixx have released a range of road wheels aimed at the competitive racer. Using the newest material available the 9 Series wheel has been in and out of testing phases for almost two years and is well refined and ready for retail.

Features:

  • DT Swiss 240 Hubs
  • Bladed Pillar spokes
  • Aluminum nipples
  • From 1494grams per set
  • Caliper brake options are supplied with carbon specific brake pads
  • Internal diameter is 17mm to 22mm
  • T800 and T1000 carbon
  • R29 999.00

“The carbon road wheel has always been a range we wanted to launch and has been bubbling away on the back-burner for the last four years as we focused our attention on the mountain bike segment. We recently expanded into the gravel market with immediate traction and now for 2019 we officially enter into the road market. We have been testing for the last two years and are super excited to finally launch the cSixx 9 Series wheelset. It’s a top of the line spec with disc or caliper brake options available as a 30, 40, 60 and 45high volume.” – Alex Mancini

A pretty neat idea is they are allowing riders to order different sized combo’s, so like a 30 on the front and say a 40 on the rear for those that live and ride in notoriously gusty areas and are worried about stability.
