Hand-built Carbon 50 Wheels - Just in

Just arrived- a small batch of handmade carbon 50 wheelsets individually built by double Commonwealth Games gold medalist and wheel building legend Paul Curran. From only £399 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 Planet X Carbon 50s are laced with premium bladed spokes and individually hand made to the highest standards of workmanship. Paul's 30 years of road racing experience is reflected in every wheel…
