Lightweight 29er XC / CX Wheelsets Specification:
1475g per wheelset. 24mm external, 19mm internal widths. Available in 29er / 700c only. Not available with Boost hubs.
These XC / CX wheels are handbuilt by us in Nottingham and are stiffer, stronger and more durable than any other sub £1000 carbon or alloy wheels on the market. Every component is of the highest specification.
Rims: Constructed from unidirectional Toray T700 carbon and have a hookless bead inner profile. These are a narrower version of our tried and tested 35mm and 30mm wide enduro rims giving incredible stiffness and ride quality with the unparalled strength and durability required for gravity enduro racing and tough all mountain riding. They are hookless bead rims with an internal width of 19mm, external is 24mm. Supplied fitted with Stan’s tubeless rim tape so ready to go tubeless with just valves and sealant.
Hubs: Hope RS4 hubs give the same performance and reliability Hope are famous for but shave weight off the standard Pro 4s. These are straight pull hubs and are incredibly adaptable to either type of freehub body and different wheels fittings.
Spokes: 24 Sapim CX Ray SP spokes make up each wheel. These are the lightest, strongest and most expensive spokes on the market used by the likes of ENVE and Zipp. How many other spokes on the market are light enough for carbon road wheels and strong enough for World Championship winning downhill wheels?!
Nipples: One way to save further weight would be to use alloy nipples rather than brass and most lightweight wheels take advantage of this easy option at the detriment to wheel strength, serviceability and longevity. All of our wheels use brass only nipples to prevent seizing a few years down the line. When we build a set of wheels we intend them to last for decades rather than merely years.
Until you have ridden with carbon wheels you cannot appreciate the huge advantages in handing and ride quality they offer. Stiffer rims improves steering accuracy, tracking and speed while the vibration absorbing properties of carbon smooth out your ride and your bike will ride noticeably quieter.
Peace of mind of UK build and back-up with 2 year warranty on all parts as well as very resonably crash replacement policy, should the worst happen.
