SKU: N/A Category:


Massive 50mm wide rims (42.5mm internal) for 3 inch ‘Plus’ size tyres. The best way to keep the weight down on your Plus bike build but you’ll benefit from so much more than just the weight saving compared to alloy rims.

Approx. wheelset weights:

With ERASE Hubs: 27.5 Sapim CX Ray: 1740g;      27.5 Sapim Race: 1830g;       29er Sapim CX Ray: 1830g        29er Sapim Race: 1920g

With Hope hubs: 27.5 Sapim CX Ray: 1840g;      27.5 Sapim Race: 1930g;       29er Sapim CX Ray: 1930g        29er Sapim Race: 2020g

Rims are constructed from unidirectional Toray T700 carbon and have a hookless bead inner profile.

We build our wheels on Hope or ERASE hubs, both of which we believe stand out from the crowd and each with their particular strengths unmatched by any other brands – reliability, longevity and serviceability being a high priority with both designs. Our wheels are built to last and our choice of hubs reflects this along with our insistance on only using brass nipples.

Standard wheels are built with Sapim Race 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.

We build these wheels with 32 spokes front and rear.

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

    Stuart built a set of these for me on special request. I had a 29+ frame I was building up and these were the perfect complement. I’m 6’6“ and 18 stone, so with a fully laiden bike l needed a strong reliable wheel to handle some extreme challenges.

    Not only do l tour on these but I switch out the touring bars and forks and then ride various bike parks/trail centres, as a hard tail.

    The wheels have never faultered and have performed beyond my expectations.
