Handsling track wheels have been ridden to junior and masters national and world titles. Our track wheels are handmade with precision and care in the UK by master wheelbuilder, Ian Lynch.
As standard, rims are 70mm deep and 25mm wide at their widest point, ideal for the new 22 and 23mm track tubulars, and aero in all conditions and on all tracks, indoor or outdoor. The slightly wider 25mm rim gives a suprising increase in stiffness, better able to handle the toughest forces of track racing. We can do narrower 23mm wide rims as well. Email us for a quote.
We can offer a wide variety of hubs from Shimano Dura-Ace, Miche Primato, DT Swiss, etc to suit your budget, and spokes are either Pillar Wing20 or Sapim cx-ray unless otherwise requested.
We usually have Dura-ace and Miche wheels in stock. Otherwise wheels can be made to order, in which case allow 1-2 weeks delivery.
We can also do different widths and depths. If you want something special, please contact us. If we do not have the rims in stock that you require we can usually get them in a couple of weeks. Recently we have built:
The new Handsling tubeless ready wheels (TLR) are among the very best high performance disc wheelsets with 30mm wide, full carbon, aerodynamic rims.
Designed for tubeless ready and clincher tyres, and perfect for road racers, cross riders and gravel grinders who want the security of using an inner tube either in normal or emergency use.
Finished in matte UD carbon, they look the business. They are light, aero and feel fast.
Cornering speed is fantastic as the wide rims offer improved cornering grip by supporting the tyre under lateral forces.
The new 30mm series wheels were developed after extensive feedback from our sponsored riders who have successfully used Handsling wheels in road races, cyclocross, crits, time-trials, in training, on gravel rides and sportives both internationally and here in the UK.
Ideally they are designed to be used with clincher/tubeless tyres of 25mm to 28mm wide, but can still be run with 32mm cyclocross tyres or even wider gravel tyres.
The rims have a very aero profile that is 30mm at its widest point, midway down the rim, before narrowing to 27mm at the rim edge to form a more aerodynamic junction with the tyre. They are most aero when combined with a 25 to 28mm road tyre.
These wheels are very easy to live with on an everyday basis and are adaptable for most conditions. They are available in 40mm, 50mm and 60mm rim depths.
All wheels are built in the UK by a experienced master wheelbuilder, Ian Lynch, to the closest of tolerances. We can build wheels to your spec but recommend the following pairings as standard:
HSTLR4040 40mm front, 40mm rear 1570g
HSTLR4050 40mm front, 50mm rear 1600g
HSTLR5050 50mm front, 50mm rear 1630g
HSTLR5060 50mm front, 60mm rear 1640g
HSTLR6060 60mm front, 60mm rear 1650g
improved aero performance
create a better tyre profile
enhanced cornering grip and speed
Very aerodynamic rims
30mm at widest point with toroidal aero profile that works really well no matter which direction the wind is coming from
40mm = 465g
50mm = 500g
60mm = 515g
We recommend the Handsling hubs, which is superb, easy to maintain and wickedly fast. They use 6 pawls, providing quick engagement, and use an anti-bite system on the cassette body for added longevity. They are a fantastic hub.
You can, however, choose from a range of hubs from DT Swiss, Shimano, Campagnolo, Miche, etc on request. Email email@example.com for a quote.
Spokes are top of the range, best in class aero Pillar Wing20 - it has been proven to be the stiffest, strongest most aero spoke out there - though we can still build with Sapimcx-ray spokes if you prefer.
We carry a good stock of wheels, so should be able to ship them next day. However, if we do not have what you want in stock, then wheels can be made to order. Please allow between a week for build and delivery.
All Handsling wheels are guaranteed against manufacturing and wheelbuilding defects under a limited lifetime warranty. Our warranty philosophy is that we are cyclists selling products to other cyclists, and we like to look after each other.
