Product information

Just one look at the Black Inc FORTY FIVE and it quickly becomes clear why this carbon wheelset remains a favourite among our sponsored professional riders. We have designed them to offer the perfect balance between aerodynamics and lightweight. It is our “do everything” wheelset that excels on flat windy courses and flies uphill with ease.

The FORTY FIVE wheelset is a disc-only, tubeless-ready wheelset that offers an excellent level of aerodynamic performance thanks to its 45mm rim profile. The mid-depth and proprietary rim profile ensures the FORTY FIVEs cut through the wind at most real-world yaw angles, while keeping the rolling weight extremely low. Since the FORTY FIVEs are disc brake only, the rim has not been burdened by having to accommodate a brake track. Reducing the required material at the outer edges of the wheel helps to reduce rotational weight and without the constraint of having a fixed shape rim side wall, making them even faster than traditional deep section wheels as well as being lighter. Optimised for 25-28mm tires, with an internal rim width of 21mm and external width of 27mm, the flush interface between tire and rim improves the aerodynamic performance while running the wider tubeless tires increases comfort and cornering capability.

The Black Inc FORTY FIVE features a revised hub construction with low-friction CeramicSpeed bearings and an updated freehub body engagement system. This advanced design allows the wheels to feel like they will spin forever, while the instantaneous engagement ensures no loss of momentum at critical moments in a race or on a training ride. The FORTY FIVE are available with Shimano, XDR and Campagnolo freehub body. The straight-pull rim and disc hubsets work easily with the CX-SPRINT and CX- RAY Aero Butted straight pull spokes. Internal alloy nipples keep the weight low and the wheel reliably true.

From Gran Fondo riding to Saturday morning crit races, you don’t have to be a pro to reap the benefits the Black Inc FORTY FIVE carbon wheels provide. At 1489 grams per pair, they are extremely lightweight for a medium depth all-round disc brake wheelset.
