Princeton CarbonWorks Dual 5550 Tubeless Disc Tactic Wheelset
As the name suggests, Princeton CarbonWorks’ Dual 5550 Tubeless Disc Tactic Wheelset has a split personality and is equally at home on the trails shod with 50mm knobbly tyres as it is with 28mm slicks on the tarmac.
The rim’s depth varies between 50mm and 55mm in a sawtooth pattern, giving less drag for a shallower depth, which in turn means better handing in crosswinds for the aerodynamic advantage. The inner width of 22mm allows a very wide range of tyre widths to be supported, meaning that it is a hugely versatile wheelset and as the rim is tubeless-ready and hooked, the tyre options are almost limitless. The lack of spoke holes in the rim bed makes tubeless conversion particularly easy as there is no rim tape to worry about.
The Tactic TR01 hubs are incredibly light at just 64 grams for the front hub and 151 grams for the rear, which keeps the wheelset weight impressively low too, despite its wide-ranging remit. Tungsten Disulfide coated ABEC 7 ceramic bearings increase the hubs’ longevity and lower friction whilst the 45 teeth of the ConicalFace freehub provide very fast engagement when instant accelerations are required.
Sapim’s revered CX-Ray spokes lace the rims to the hubs, providing enough strength and efficiency for the steepest road climbs or toughest gravel trails.
