Evans Cycles to bring Cole Wheels to UK

The T85 Lite is the deepest wheel in the range
At the other end of the spectrum, the C24 Lite is the workhorse of the collection

Cole Wheels are to arrive on UK shores for the first time through Evans Cycles. 

Cole Wheels, official wheel sponsor for Vacansoleil Pro Cycling last year, manufacture road, TT/tri, cyclo-cross and mountain bike wheels, which will be available exclusively through Evans’ nationwide network of 43 stores and online/mailorder facilities from early June.

The road range includes the C24 Lite (£274.99, 1650g per pair, Campag freehub option), the workhorse of the collection, and the all-new C38 Lite (£999.99, 1670g per pair, Campag freehub option), with a full-carbon 38mm clincher rim.

The T38 Lite (£799.99, 1360g per pair), a 38mm full-carbon tubular wheelset, is popular with Cole’s professional cyclocross racers in Belgium, while the T85 Lite (£1099.99, 1747g per pair), the deepest wheel in the range, is built for time trialling, with an 85mm full high-modulus carbon fibre tubular rim. 

The US-based company, established in 2004, have developed an innovative approach to the design and construction of its hubs and rims, centring largely around their patent-pending DSA system (Dynamic Spoke Alignment) – a spoke lacing system, resulting in improved wheel stiffness, strength and durability, as well as spoke life and without the burden of a hefty weight penalty.

The DSA system consists of double-threaded, self-aligning, straight-pull spokes (instead of using traditional spokes with a J-bend at the hub) that thread into a small alloy cylinder, which is captured in the hub. The cylinder is free to rotate, allowing the spoke to self-align with a standard nipple at the rim hole, its natural position.

Head this way to view the full range.
