Profile Design has been making components for triathlon and road bike racing for over twenty years. In this period, Profile Design has grown to become a well known brand in triathlon scene.

For next season, Profile Design brings a complete range of wheels onto the market for the first time. The Profile Design range can be divided into four model groups, including high carbon tube wheels to aluminium wheels. The hand built wheels are being put on the market after three years of extensive testing and development.

Profile Design’s aim is to develop a wheel set that remains optimally aerodynamic in any wind direction. According to Profile Design it is relatively simple to develop an aerodynamic wheel that reduces the air resistance if the wind comes from in front. However, this seldom happens. The rider only has to turn a little bit and the angle of the wind changes. Therefore all Profile Design wheel sets are wind tunnel tested with wind coming from different angles.

The carbon rims come in two different depths, 52 and 80 millimetre while the aluminium rims come in 24, 30 and 38 millimetre. The in-house developed hubs have sealed bearings. The wheels are built by hand. Profile Design wheel sets are distributed by Veltec in the Benelux and Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Finland.
