As part of its new all-road and gravel component line-up, Cadex has unveiled the ultralight AR 35 wheelset and accompanying AR and GX tyres. The range will expand later in the year with the launch of a composite handlebar.

At just 1270 grams a pair, the AR 35s - as in 35 mm rim depth - are among the lightest all-road and gravel wheelsets currently available. Cadex also claims that the hookless rims offer “best-in-class stiffness-to-weight ratio.”
