Noblest highend Wheelset

1215 gramm


The road the wind is often an essential factor. With Airways you will use the right wheel set for sure!


Nearly no spreading of the wheels even in the weighing ride and surely even very aerodynamic due to the flat spokes. That in this case lightness is prior to quickness, this is due to the little profiled but also very flat construction of the rim .

A lot of tension on the spokes as well as internal nipples are additional characteristics of this really great wheel set.

The interaction of the TRP brake and the Tune carbon rim has been phenomenal: a really great control, a clearly defined pressure point and a breaking performance that has been on the same level playing field with all other to date tested combinations of brakes and rims. After this nice surprise I decided down there to turn on a dime and to go up again….“

The Wheeset also got tested by LA VELOCITA:

„I have been ruined by these wheels. I’ve flown on first class Tune Airways and now I have to go sit at the back of the plane with my aluminium clinchers like a chump. These wheels are insane. Insanely fast, insanely light, insanely comfortable, and unexpectedly stable.“

We use standard bearings. This means you can also buy bearings in Australia if you need to. Ours are just a little special, with two main differences:

  • Our bearings have a higher fat filling grade. 30% is standard, whilst ours are filled to 50%. This not only prolongs their life, but also provides a better
  • Standard bearings have variations in play from their production.
Tune bearings have the play specially determined dependent on their use. One single Tune bearing is not standard – the bearing in the free-wheel body on the left. It is constructed specifically to withstand high forces and last extra long.

Carbon Wrapping

The spoke crossings are wrapped with Carbon fibre, which gets strengthened with resin. This increases the wheel quality. The result is that the spoke construction becomes more stable, several components are connected to one stiff, long lasting unit. The increased stiffness leads to a more direct reaction when riding out of the saddle and enables precise steering. In the case of an overload, e.g. by a shock, the most stressed spoke gets released by the spoke it is wrapped with.

Sapim CX-Ray

The CX-Ray still receives the best results in fatigue testing of any spoke. Its unique strength and flexibility make the CX-Ray suitable for most bicycle disciplines. The middle section of the spoke is drawn then pressed in a special mold to form its specific profile. CX-Ray spokes are used by top bike racers and triathletes around the world. Even downhillers use them, recognizing their strength and flexibility. Special alloy treatment and sophisticated production make this all possible. The CX-Ray fits is all standard hub holes.
