Handbuilt Carbon Wheels

Just arrived- a small batch of handmade carbon wheelsets individually built on to top end DT Swiss and PMP hubs by double Commonwealth Games gold medalist and wheel building legend Paul Curran. From only £799 per pair, they are some of the finest race wheels that money can buy...

Paul Curran turns pro in 1989Following an unfortunate wheel collapsing incident in the 1988 Korea Olympics Paul Curran started to build and maintain his own and then other riders' wheels and is now respected as one of the UK's best wheel builders. Curran is a racing legend. In the words of Ian Cammish: "He used to slaughter the domestic competition you know… He could read a race better than anyone and pick his moment to ride away from everyone... and off into the sunset never to be seen again...well not until the finish!!"

Today he puts all of that racing expertise into every pair of wheels he builds. These limited edition DT Swiss / PMP / Planet X models are laced with premium DT Swiss Aerospeed bladed or Super Comp triple butted spokes and individually hand made to the highest standards of workmanship. Paul's 30 years of road racing experience is reflected in every wheel…

These wheels come not only with some of the world's top components, but also with some of the leading experience, reputation and attention to detail. Each wheel is carefully hand built by Paul himself, with the maximum attention to detail- you will not find a better made set of race wheels- we are sure of that. Note- these wheels are a strictly limited edition small run and when they are gone there will be no more! And at only £799 per set (£899 for the Ceramic 190 hub version) they will be sure to sell out fast…
