The DV46UL shares most of the design and performance characteristics as the DV46C and DV46T, with one important difference: it employs a special, high-modulus composite in the rim to shave precious grams without sacrificing structural integrity. Not only can the DV46UL generate a higher top end than any other carbon wheel, its stiffness coefficient enables the rider to convert muscular effort into forward motion with tremendous efficiency while resisting power-robbing flex even under the most severe application of torque. The DV46UL has proved itself as one of today’s most popular all-around race wheels, the choice of many racers in the pro/1/2 categories. It’s equally well suited for the road to Mt. Evans or the streets of San Francisco.
