    why 45-55 SHAPE

    why 45-55 SHAPE

    Many ppl asked why 45-55 shape?

    45-55 been made for few years by TUFF it's still modern now. there are 2 points we may to know:

    • Class leading aerodynamics and weight
    • Incredible stability in gusty conditions

    45mm front allows air to flow smoothly over the rim –split the wind,55mm rear for wind and riding stable,safe and balance.

    – even at high crosswind angles and to reattach quicker after a strong side gust. These important advances make the 45.55 both extremely fast and stable for its depth. In challenging conditions, wind-steer is all but eliminated and side force builds and releases smoothly and predictably, so you can ride and race with complete confidence.

    Great Premium 45-55 Wheel Set
    5 / 5 stars

    The set of rim wheels I purchased 10 months ago are the Premium 45-55 using Tuff hubs & QR. It’s mated to the Continental GP5000 TL 700X28c. Inflated to 80-84 psi with 2oz Stan’s sealer. The farthest one day ride with these wheels were 60 miles and total miles so far about 200+. Except for the hollow tinging can sound while rolling, the wheels and tires combo has performed well hitting speed downhill to 50 mph around my area and with the carbon brake pads has not shown any rim scratch or wear. In regular cross wind the wheels are not affected and performed on the wind like my old bontrager race lite alloy wheels. Pretty sure these wheels will last awhile avoiding road ruts and holes. Very good buy and satisfied with these wheels.

    high quality wheels
    5 / 5 stars

    Just did a 100miles on my tuff 45/55 clinchers with DT350s as soon as I had them, so far so much better than my stock wheels. Handled so well on the road/trail conditions we have here in California. Way beyond my expectations. Sending some pics.. :)

    Very good value for the price. I think it is the best choice for beginners or non-competitive riders on the market. The wheels look good and role smooth and fast.

    Value for money carbon wheelset
    4 / 5 stars

    Great value carbon wheels, fast on the straight, maybe a placebo effect but I got a new PR on a strava segment with these wheels, or maybe I just got stronger.

The warranty applies to the original owner but we also assist secondary owners if the product has been treated fairly.

In other words we will do our absolute best to make your experience with TUFF a positive one.

    This Warranty Does Not Cover

    Damage caused by a crash, wear and tear, or incorrect installation. If you do strike some back luck, know that you can rely on us to get you back up to speed as fast as possible. Please contact us immediately if you encounter any issues with your TUFF wheels.

    Crash Replacement Policy

    The TUFF crash replacement policy is available at 50% off the retail price of any required new parts and labour for the same level wheel as your original purchase.
