Cadex launches 50 Ultra Disc Wheelsystem: New ultralight aero wheels

Cadex is a brand under the Giant umbrella, but the new Cadex 50 Ultra Disc wheelset is not a Giant house brand wheelset. Although we’ve talked about it in the past, Cadex is a brand with roots that go back to the mid-’80s. At the time, Giant was looking to build a carbon fiber bicycle frame and needed a groupset that could break free from the realities everyday commercials.

Giant needed a moonshot group and Cadex was the answer to the need. The brand then disappeared until 2019. This time with a range of wheels but with a mission statement that hadn’t changed. Described in his own words, “CADEX is the search for what many see as unlikely, even impossible.” As the line has expanded since the initial launch, it continues to mean surprisingly light and highly aerodynamic.

Cadex wheels are some of our favorites and we have included the 65mm depth in our list of the best. best road bike wheels. Although until now there has been a gap in the brand’s lineup right at the most popular modern depth and today’s launch is changing that. The Cadex 50 Ultra Disc wheel system represents an expansion of available wheel depth. It brings to market the latest aerodynamic tricks and a new aerodynamically optimized tire for a complete wheel system.
