FAQ's

Whats in the box?

Includes: Fuel Custom wheels, Alloy Titanium Skewers, Rim Tape, Alloy Valve Extensions, Carbon Brake pad set   

Why the U shape design for rims?

U shape increases the stiffness, strength and improves aerodynamics. Another bonus is it also decreases the chance of a pinch flat as the tube sits deeper in the rim valley. A wider tyre seat means the sidewalls stand up straighter reducing tyre flex during cornering for improved traction.

Why are they only available in 20 front and 24 hole rear configurations?

We have found that this is the best all round config' for the majority of riders out there riding road for training and racing, stay tuned however as we are still considering to run an ultralight 16/20 set for riders under 75kg only. 

Can we change the spokes to Silver colour?

Yes you can, please request this in the notes at checkout.

What is the straight pull spokes and why do you use this configuration with DT hubs?

Straight pull spokes have no 'J' bend at the hub end & slot thru holes in the hubs then head straight to the rim with no bend, this is adds strength and less stress to the spokes, resulting in a stronger stiffer wheel. DT hubs only offer this option. 

Why do you use Sapim spokes?

Because they are one of the best! We have been using Sapim spokes for over 20years and always found them to be super strong and reliable. Sapim have been making spokes for over 90years. We also use DT Swiss spokes for different configurations - why? As they are also one of the best! 

Can you use tubeless tires on these wheels?

No they are for clincher tyres only of width 23-28mm with a maximum tire pressure of 115psi.

What is the warranty period?

Fuel Carbon wheels are covered by a two year warranty period from date of purchase.
