SKU: N/A Category:


These are available as 29er wheelsets only. The rims are manufactured with an identical construction to our 35mm AM / Enduro rims but with a 5mm narrower profile for anyone who wants to run tyres of around 2.1 – 2.3 width although these still give a great profile with a 2.4 tyre. They are 30mm wide externally, 25mm internally and provide incredible lateral stiffness and extreme toughness on a wheel that weighs similar to your average lightweight XC alloy wheel – around 1720g with Sapim CX Ray spokes and 1810g with DT Swiss Competition spokes

Rims are constructed from unidirectional Toray T700 carbon and have a hookless bead inner profile. Like all of our wheels, they are built on Hope Pro 4 hubs in your choice of colour and available in all sizes including Boost and with either freehub arrangement. Rim graphics are our white and blue as standard but you can choose any combination of colours to match your hubs and bike.

Standard wheels are built with DT Swiss Competition double butted spokes or you can upgrade to Sapim CX Ray spokes for an approx. 90g per wheelset weight saving and even more strength and durability.

Hope SP (straight pull) hubs are an option if you choose the Sapim spokes but these are not available on boost hubs. The main advantage of the SP hubs / spokes is the improved look. The weight and characteristics of the wheels are virtually unaffected.

Wheelset prices start at £679 with DT Swiss Competition spokes with the following upgrades available:

Sapim CX Ray spokes – adds £100

Straight Pull Hubs / spokes – adds £36 (only available with CX Ray upgrade and NOT on Boost hubs)

Prices include free UK delivery and we deliver to most other European countries for a small extra cost.

    Needed some wheels for my new build, my Stans Flow with Hope pro 2 had served me well for a good few years and was maybe looking to go down the same route until I stumbled across Blue Flow Wheels. I thought carbon wheels were well out of my price range and an unnecessary luxury, alloy has been fine all these years for me but I spoke to Stuart and put across my needs and he assured me they would fit the bill. I’m not a small rider, about 6ft 1′ and 16st, and living on the edge of the Lake District with its rocky trails I need strong wheels. They seem to be truly unbreakable, I get it wrong quite a bit and they just take all the hits, staying true and seemingly unmarked with the new Hope hubs still a doddle to service. I didn’t think new wheels could make a bike faster but round the fast flowy stuff at Whinlatter you can certainly notice the difference, so much more grip and confidence to corner faster. Don’t look any further for a new set of wheels, well happy and impressed with Blue Flow, top service from Stuart, if you are thinking of upgrading your wheels, I would thoroughly recommend these.

    Bought a set of these rims for my trail bike before a trip to the Alps, absolutely fantastic wheels and couldn’t believe how much they changed the ride for the better, fast, responsive and so much feedback in the corners they give a rider huge amounts of confidence. I have hammered these wheels all over the world for 3 years, still running dead straight, can inflate tubeless with just a floor pump and have never let me down. I’ve been so impressed with the All Mountain Enduro wheelset i’m using a set of the 30mm 29er rims for this years XC racing……

    These wheels haven’t put a foot wrong, and just as importantly the back up and responsiveness from Stuart at Blueflow when I’ve had stupid questions has been great.

    I’ve had the wheels for around 6 months, and though I haven’t ridden them as much as I would like, they have had a fair old bashing from the unskillful/heavy me at uplift venues such as Antur Stiniog and Bike Park Wales with barely a mark on them.

    Light, strong, look amazing, built superbly, UK support and better value than any other carbon wheelset I’ve come across – what more could you want!

    This wheelset is amazing, tried to run Hans Dampf Trailstar on rear for more grip but was cornering that hard it ripped the outer knobs off so now run a Double Defense on the rear. I’m very happy with the rims downhill a lot faster – and uphill. Will be getting a set for my carbine in the near future, they have changed the way I ride, a lot more confident, I don’t even bother with lines anymore with these on I can just go straight over the top, they level rocky sections and turn tight. I will be running on carbon rims for the rest off my riding life they are that much better than alloy

    Having raced MTB XC discipline for the last 4 years using various aluminium rims, namely Stan’s NoTubes Crest on my 29ers I decided to take the plunge into carbon rims. Having read numerous reviews online at various big brand manufacturers and their sometimes extortionate costs I was fortunate enough on my searching to have found someone very local to me that was building carbon wheels with Hope hubs – with locality and Hope builds I was very much on the road to purchasing.
    Having spoken with Stuart on the phone and met in person I was very confident in his product and passion for cycling that I placed an order there and then. The quick service and excellent product backed up my thoughts and I must say I am very pleased with the wheels, stiff and strong and as a bonus looks great too.
    Racing a 29er you really do notice the extra stiffness that carbon wheels bring leaning the bike over in the corners and stamping on the pedals when in climbing and sprinting situations no energy is lost, the difference to the Crests is actually quite significant – and better. Oh and the 30mm ones that I have give a nice profile to 2.25 tyres (they seat/seal Schwalbe TL-Easy tyres a breeze with a little sealant).

    I shall certainly recommend to my friends and be back for a spare set in the near future.
    Thank you!!
