    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.

    Lifetime Warranty Keeps You Riding & Happy

We warrant our wheels to be free from defects in material or workmanship for a period of three years after purchase. We pride ourselves in getting wheels back to clients quickly and being available when you need us. The warranty applies to the original owner but we also assist secondary owners if the product has been treated fairly. Free ongoing service is also available for three years after purchase including free wheel truing & spoke replacement if required at no extra charge (just pay shipping). In other words we will do our absolute best to make your experience with TUFF a positive one.

    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.
