The 3T Discus C45 LTD Stealth Wheelset marry aerodynamics, strength and comfort in a forward-thinking, fully carbon construction – ideal if you’re looking for a beautifully crafted, optimised all-road or gravel wheelset.

Forming part of 3T’s top-tier LTD range, the Discus C45 LTD rims have been developed from the ground up as the ultimate all-road rims. Aerodynamically optimised but shallow enough to keep you fully stable in strong crosswinds, these rims are light on climbs, ultra-durable and ensure lasting comfort. If you’re likely to encounter poor road surfaces, gravel or even some light single track on weekend adventures, these are the rims for you.

With the aerodynamic performance of the very best 60mm deep rims but in a 45mm format, the C45 rims mean that you can roll faster for longer. The wider rim section means that a standard 25mm road tyre sits at 28mm wide – not only ideal for a 3T Strada frameset but saving on weight of wider stock tyres.

Remarkably, the aerodynamic properties of the C45 are retained all the way up to 40mm gravel tyres, giving you the flexibility to explore untrammelled tracks and poor surfaces at speed. If you value comfort as well as maintaining peak performance and rolling speed in harsh conditions this is a solid choice.

Futureproof and forward-thinking, each set of C45 wheels comes with both SRAM XDR and Shimano driveshells so that you can swap the wheels onto future iterations of your bike when the time comes.

The asymmetric carbon construction of the rims allows for spokes to be offset – compensating for the space required for cassettes and brake rotors on the hubs. This enables wheels to be built with equal spoke angles on the drive and non-drive sides and crucially for you means greater stiffness and lasting durability.
