These are our most popular wheels and how we started out. 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 tyre, incredible lateral stiffness and extreme toughness on a wheel that weighs similar to your average lightweight XC alloy wheel – around 1710g per wheelset for a 27.5 wheelset with CX Ray spokes.
Approx wheelset weights:
27.5 CX Ray: 1725g; 27.5 DT Comp: 1800g; 29er CX Ray: 1800g 29er DT Comp: 1890g
Rims have a hookless bead inner profile. They are constructed from unidirectional Toray T700 carbon with a choice of standard UD or our unique kevlar carbon weave outer skin for even more impact resistance and that stand out look. 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 for UD carbon rims and DT Swiss Competition spokes with the following upgrades available:
Kevlar Carbon rims – adds £20
Sapim CX Ray spokes – adds £100
Straight Pull Hubs / spokes – adds £36 (only available with CX Ray upgrade and NOT on Boost hubs)
