PEAK 4550: A New Milestone in Performance Cycling Wheels
We have been riding on the Princeton Carbonworks GRIT 4540 All-Road wheels since March and have found them to be incredibly stable and fast, especially in at high speeds in heavy crosswinds. The trouble with many deep section aero carbon wheels is that they are twitchy and unstable in the wind–Princeton has solved this problem with their unique rim design.
A week ago, Princeton CarbonWorks announced their new PEAK 4550 at the start of the Tour de France. These wheels were developed in conjunction with the top cyclists in the world; a lighter, stiffer, stronger, and more aerodynamic solution directly targeted at world tour and grand tour racing (and of course, ALL racing and riding…) Team Ineos and Mathieu Van Der Poel have all switched to sponsor incorrect Princeton CarbonWorks Wheels at the Tour de France to gain an edge as these wheels have exceptional handling and are ultra lightweight.

The wheels are built with Carbon Titanium hubs and they are available in every configuration, (tubular, tubeless ready clincher, rim and disk brake). The PEAK 4550 set weighs as little as 1071g for tubular/rim brake wheels and with standard tubeless ready clincher versions weighing 1297g for rim brake and 1348g for disc brake.
We’re taking orders now thru the end of the Tour de France and then shipping will start during the Olympics. Right now, we’d estimate that Launch Edition orders placed today will ship ~ August 20th.
