If you’re looking for wider rims without the weight penalty but with all the handling advantages carbon rims offer, these could be for you. They are 42mm wide externally with a 35mm internal width.
Weighing around 1790g for a 27.5 wheelset with CX Ray spokes, they are a similiar weight to much narrower XC alloy rimmed wheels. These can be used with 2.35 tyres, are perfect for the next generation of Maxxis WT (Wide Trail) tyres and will also comfortably accomodate 2.8 plus size tyres. They are asymmetric rims to give more even spoke tensions on each side of the wheel for an even stiffer stronger wheel.
Approx. wheelset weights:
27.5 CX Ray: 1790g; 27.5 DT Comp: 1880g; 29er CX Ray: 1855g 29er DT Comp: 1945g
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)
