New for 2018 and replacing our long running BF35/30s – moving to an asymmetric profile in line with our BF30/24 and BF42/35 wheelsets. 37mm outer and 30.5mm inner widths, these are perfect for riders running tyres between 2.2 and 2.6 width. Tough light wheels that will give huge improvements to the feel and handling of your bike – so much more than just the weight saving compared to alloy rims.
Approx. wheelset weights:
27.5 CX Ray: 1735g; 27.5 DT Comp: 1825g; 29er CX Ray: 1800g 29er DT Comp: 1890g
Rims are constructed from unidirectional Toray T700 carbon and have a hookless bead inner profile. They are asymmetric to give more even spoke tensions on each side of the wheel for an even stiffer, stronger wheel. 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. Choose any combination of rim decal colours to match your hubs and bike.
Standard wheels are built with DT Swiss Competition 2.0-1.8-2.0 double butted spokes which are wider gauge than most competitors build with but are up to the job for the type of riding these wheels are built for and do not snap. If you would like the same strength at a lighter weight, choose Sapim CX Ray spokes for an approx. 90g per wheelset weight saving – the most expensive and fatigue resistant spokes on the market (adds £70 but check out the cost of one of these spokes online and multiply by 65).
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 £719 with 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)
Prices include free UK delivery and we deliver to most other European countries for a small extra cost.
