Cero AR30 Evo Wheelset
Cero AR30 Evo 1433g
Our all new AR30 Evo is here, the culmination of 18 months development to improve on our multiple award winning and bestselling AR30.
We have meticulously looked at every aspect of the wheel to improve and enhance your ride where possible whilst still maintaining incredibly competitive pricing.
The AR30 Evo features a tubeless ready rim profile with an outer measurement of 22mm and inner of 17.4, this allows better fitment of a wider tyre improving the aerodynamics, comfort and rolling resistance.
The new lightweight Cero hub set laces Sapims range topping and renowned CX ray spoke to our rim via the straight pull fitment – increasing stiffness, strength whilst reducing weight.
The freehub body fitted now features an anti-bite guard to avoid any slight movement in the connection between cassette and wheel, again increasing reliability and durability.
Rim: The new AR30 rim has been selected for its performance benefits, the tubeless compatibility gives you the option of running tubeless or standard clincher tyres. Going tubeless allows you to run at a lower pressure without fear of pinch flats, once the wheels are filled with sealant puncture protection is vastly enhanced with holes up to 3mm being sealed.
The wider rim better accommodates the use of larger tyres, creating a more aero profile and giving a more comfortable and complete ride.
-Internal width: 17.4mm
-Rim weight: 475g
Spokes: The often-overlooked component in a wheelset, they bear the load, transfer power, absorb the rigors of the road and ensure a smooth ride.
Spokes must be strong enough to take the incredible and varied braking and accelerating forces you subject your bike to on any terrain.
We don’t compromise on quality to hit price points, we offer the best spoke available today, the Sapim CX-Ray.
The CX-Ray still receives the best results in fatigue testing of any spoke available, its unrivaled strength, light weight, aerodynamics and flexibility make the CX-Ray the perfect choice for a high end racing wheel.

- Superb performance, low weght & price.
- I’ve been a ‘serious’ cyclist for over 45 years, and although I no longer race I still enjoy riding high end, light weight racing bikes. I do regular 20-30 mile hilly rides locally, as well as twice yearly trips to the Alps, Pyrenees, and Mallorca amongst other places.
Inevitably I’m comparing these Cero AR30 Evo wheels with others I still use regularly; a pair of Campagnolo Eurus (12 years old), and 2 sets of Shimano C24 Dura-Ace (one 6 years, the other 1 year old).
Ordering online was easy, and I was pleased to find that they use a courier who will give you a one hour delivery slot for what is normally the next working day. Cycle Division should advertise this prominently! The wheels arrived in perfect condition, and give the appearance of being well made & designed, and look stunning to me.
I couldn’t resist weighing them, and given the inaccuracies of most digital scales, was pleased to find that they were 1445g a pair including freehub body & rim tape but not skewers. This compares with the C24s which were 1450g. Adding the skewers to both wheelsets reversed the situation, with the C24s now 1550g and the Ceros 1555g. A meaningless difference of 5g, or 0.17oz!
After all these years it’s rare for me to try any new or different equipment and get excited about it, but these wheels have proved the exception. They look better than the C24s, as good as the (old) Eurus, weigh pretty much the same as the C24s, but best of all deliver a noticeably smooth ride. They also have a quality of stability that I would normally associate with a heavier wheel, and inspired confidence, whilst providing exhilarating handling. The rim design gave noticeably better braking than the Eurus & C24s, being both powerful, firm, and progressive. Despite recent gales, I wasn’t buffeted by the wind, but I don’t think there is any significant aerodynamic benefit in 30mm deep rims such as these. I wondered if the Ceros were quite as stiff as the C24s; it could be my current lack of fitness but although the wheels were responsive I wasn’t sure acceleration was quite as good. The freehub is very noisy; if my Eurus rear wheel were this loud I’d know it was time to put more grease in the hub, but there’s no way to do this with Cero. The plus side is that when I’m approaching pedestrians weaving around along our narrow country lanes, stopping pedalling alerts them to my approach!
These wheels offer a superb, smooth, bump absorbent ride, secure but exhilarating handling, and at a weight that’s much the same as the C24s. I prefer the Ceros for appearance, price, and performance, and at around £250 less than the C24s they represent a truly outstanding achievement in wheel design, production and pricing. I hope I’m still cycling in 12, and 6 years time, and can compare their longevity with my Eurus and C24 wheels!

- I am so glad I bought a set of these
- I bought a set of AR30 wheels after reading a positive review on a cycling blog. Five months later I am delighted with them. THey are well made, ultra light and roll wonderfully. I got them as a birthday gift and was considering a set of Mavic Ksyrium Elites as my friends had them but I am glad I did not. THese wheels look great on my bike, I have now done 3,000 miles on then and they are perfectly true. I would definately recommend these to others and indeed one of my cycling friends has also bought a set.
