Evidently, the AR30 Evos aim for that sweetspot of all-day rideability, reliability, light weight and potent wind cheating capability. Fit them with a racy set of clinchers or a tubeless setup, and you’re going to be laughing.
The hubs have also been tweaked and are shared with the RC45 wheelset – at this price you’re not going to see carbon construction or ceramic bearings, but the double-sealed cartridges made of premium 6061 lightweight aluminium are a great blend of performance and resilience.
The freehub also boasts an anti-bite coating to minimise any slippage between the cassette and the body, resulting, Cero say, in a more efficient ride. Ever noticed how cassettes can bite into cheaper freehubs over prolonged use, making them both tricky to remove and quicker wearing? That should be a thing of the past now.
Spokes come via respected Belgian firm Sapim, with the industry-standard CX-Ray, which boasts a bladed aero profile and reliable stainless steel construction. You get 20 of them in each wheel, hinting at the lightweight intentions.
