Black Inc Five Wheelset
Designed to be lightweight, aero, and durable, the Black Inc FIVE carbon spoke wheelset provides the ultimate performance for the serious road rider looking for something special in a pair of wheels. Tubeless compatible and intended to excel with wider road tires, the FIVEs are simultaneously practical and envelope-pushing.
Black Inc FIVE is a class-leading road wheel, engineered to perfection with striking aesthetics. It is a tubeless compatible, disc-brake only clincher wheelset and a true all-rounder. FIVE is ideally suited to long days in the saddle, adept at climbing and turning it on when the going gets fast on the tarmac. The one-piece wheel structure has been carefully optimized with CFD software for superior handling and faster performance over traditional mid-depth steel spoked wheels. FIVE’s, one-piece, five-spoke design draws upon inspiration from the motor and automotive industry and uses a unique Kamm tail design. Our engineers have validated the wheel’s performance in our own CFD and FEA models ensuring exceptional aerodynamics and strength based on real-world road conditions. The hubs have been exclusively designed and manufactured in-house specifically for the FIVE wheel. In doing so, all tolerances have been optimized to match our customized Black Inc + CeramicSpeed long-life bearings for hub durability, while keeping rolling resistance to an absolute minimum. The hub has been specially developed with both a mechanical and chemical retention joint. The Factor FIVE is a lightweight clincher wheelset at just 1,318g and has been developed for exceptional aero performance using NACA optimized spoke, rim and hub profiles. No element of the wheel has been left to chance. FIVE is the pinnacle of performance and luxury, designed to go fast, wherever the road takes you.
