DCR Vivaldi Wheelset
The DCR Vivaldi Wheelset Is Intended For Four Season Use. Calling This Set A ‘Four Season’ Or ‘All Season’ Wheelset Downplays Their Character.
Prices from £330. The DCR Vivaldi Wheelset is appropriate for competitive summer riding because despite its robustness and price tag it has been well engineered and precisely made. Our eye has been kept keenly on value, however the set is still hand built by us in Sussex to our usual superlative standards. The weight has also been kept as low as is realistic (1460g/pair for rim brake, 1600g for disc brake) whilst also providing a stiff and resilient setup. As with all our wheelsets, you can customise hub colour as well as drilling, freehub body and axle length. We endeavour to keep this wheelset with silver spokes in stock, ready to dispatch at all times. Should we run out of stock at any point we will write to you as soon as possible to advise.
This is our entry level hand-built wheelset. Looking to upgrade? Why not try our DCR Standard Wheelset?
All Year Round Use
£330 (£350 for disc brake) provides the wheelset including UK shipping and tubeless rim tape. We build the wheels with black rims, black hubs, silver D-light spokes with silver alloy nipples. The DCR hubs used here have our dedicated UK weather treatment to ensure maximum longevity and best possible performance, as well as fast freehub engagement and anti-bite system on the Shimano versions. Campagnolo (including N3W), XD and XDR, and Shimano Microspline freehubs can be fitted if required. The rim brake hubs can also be adapted between 130mm and 135mm spacing, and the disc brake hubs can be adapted between quick release and thru-axle standards.
Spokes And Nipples
Using Sapim’s alloy nipples and our nipple/spoke prep means that even in all year round use alloy nipples are still a sound choice. We provide a lifetime warranty on the build/spokes on this basis. Changing your hub colour or increasing the spoke count to 24/28 can be done without any additional charge. Upgrading to black D-light spokes incurs an upcharge of £20, DCR titanium skewers can be added for £30. International delivery is possible but will incur an additional charge.
Kinlin XR-26T and XR-26RT Rims
The Kinlin XR-26t rim is a sound choice for this sort of wheelset. It is a practical weight and an accurate extrusion. A T-10 niobium alloy has been used for additional performance benefits. Being 26mm deep the rim is robust and nice and stiff, being 24mm wide (19mm internal) it is best suited to tyres from 25c upwards and provides good support for those tyres increasing the volume of air within them. An offcentre (asymmetrical) version of the rim is used at the rear to increase the drive side bracing angle and the non-drive side spoke tensions. For best results, we do recommend a tubeless setup on these wheels which we can provide for you should you require. If you wish to directly purchase the wheelset, you can do so using the links below. We endeavour to keep this wheelset in stock at all times, should we run out of stock at any point we will write to you as soon as possible to advise.
All options available with any freehub. Choose from the three options below, each is customisable in terms of spoke colour, freehub and axle choice, as well as the option of a tubeless setup if you want them to arrive ready to ride.
