These have been our most popular wheelsets and how we started out. However, since we started building wheels with these rims, a few other brands (some big names selling the same rims on inferior hubs for double the price) have sourced the same rims from our manufacturer. On top of this, we wanted to bring all of our wheelsets in line with the same asymmetric profile we’ve been using on BF42/35s and BF30/24s for a while. Although we are sold out of 29er 35/30 rims we still have a good stock of 27.5s. Still as good as they always have been and £40 cheaper than our other wheelsets these are exceptional value for money. Just read the reviews on this product page!
With a 35mm external and 30mm internal width, they hit the sweet spot between getting the perfect tyre profile for maximum grip with a 2.4 / 2.5 tyre, incredible lateral stiffness and extreme toughness on a wheel that weighs similar to your average lightweight XC alloy wheel – around 1740g per wheelset for a 27.5 wheelset with CX Ray spokes.
Approx wheelset weights:
27.5 CX Ray: 1740g; 27.5 DT Comp: 1830g
Rims have a hookless bead inner profile. They are constructed from unidirectional Toray T700 carbon, 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 for UD carbon rims and DT Swiss Competition spokes with the following upgrades available:
Sapim CX Ray spokes – adds £70
Straight Pull Hubs / spokes – adds £36 (only available with CX Ray upgrade and NOT on Boost hubs)
