High-Tech Carbon Fibre

The No. 1 wheelset designed to offer the highest level of performance with timeless and understated styling, the perfect complement to any highly bespoke build or high performance super bike.

24ct Gold Leaf

The luxurious black marble finish of the rims offers understated finish which complements any frame finish or paint scheme. A beautiful and striking 24ct gold leaf Æ logos adorn the rims and ceramic coated hub bodies.

The 55mmm deep rims are paired with precision machined and ceramic coated No. 1 hubs, designed to withstand all four-seasons and offering silky smooth rolling.
