Continued from Above:

“DRIVE SIX has stunning looks and great aerodynamic styling. One-piece design with 6 carbon spokes increases rigidity and power transfer values. Carbon spokes transmit power more directly than steel spokes, so less force is needed when climbing and accelerating. Silver decals with hand-stacked marbling set the DRIVE SIX wheels apart.”
