Ventus, is the Latin word for wind: With the advent of the Ventus C line of wheels we now have ventured into the world of carbon fiber. We have evaluated and tested 8 different carbon fiber rim manufactures and have made our final decision based on strength, heat dissipation, fit & finish, consistency in manufacturing and deliverablity. The Ventus C line of wheels is intended to be both a high performance and incredibly durable wheel set. They share a similar U shaped aerodynamic profile as many other proven aerodynamic performers as well as being comparable in weight to wheels twice there price. They also will exceed the life span of most aluminum wheels and finally come with a generous 3 year warranty.
We at prowheelbuilder have used our extensive experience to configure a wheel set that utilizes the best non proprietary components available today along with our knowledge of spoke length, spoke tension, stress relieving and truing to supply you with a wheel set we are proud to put our name on.
Ventus wheel sets will ship within 15 business days.The Ventus wheel set is completely hand build, tensioned, trued, stressed and boxed in the USA by Powheelbuilder.com.

The Ventus Carbon wheel set uses the following components:
PWB Carbon Rims: They are a tubeless compatible rim made from T800 Unidirectional Carbon fiber, infused with High TG resin and Graphine at the brake track. These materials insure that the rim exceeds all known performance perimeters set by UCI or anyone else. The High TG resin helps insure that the resin doest soften under high braking temperatures, the textured brake track makes sure you use less hand force to slow down (especially in the wet), helps reduce temperatures and helps prevent brake squeal. The infused Graphine to the composite material helps prevent the textured brake track from loosing is textured surface over time. These features insure excellent stopping power in both wet and dry conditions and eliminates concerns of brake track failure do to overheating.
PWB Bitex Hubs: These hubs utlize a 48 tooth drive ring along with two sets of three pawls which gives the rider 3.75 degrees of engagent. Along with cartridge bearings and a 15mm rear axle these hubs out perform many more expensive hubs and have been utlilized by us for many other wheels builds since 2014 with out any issue.
Sapim Spokes: They are the best in the industry! Here is a quick video demonstrating that CLICK HERE.
Sapim Locking Nipples: This nipple uses a unique thread deformation to insure that the nipple will not vibrate loose which can lead to the wheel prematurely going out of true.
Warranty: The Ventus C warranty covers all manufacture defects for 3 YEARS. However if you damage the wheel outside of normal wear and tear then we offer a crash replacement program FOR THE LIFE OF THE PRODUCT (to the original owner). The way the crash replacement works is save 25% off all item(s) that do not fall under manufacturer warranty and shipping to and from. Simple as that and you are back on the road.
