At Blue Flow we firmly believe carbon is best but we realise not everybody agrees with this and not everyone wants to spend the extra money. So we also offer handbuilt custom wheels with DT Swiss rims with either Hope Pro 5 or Bitex hubs. We can build any DT Swiss rims you like for similar prices to these EX511 snf XM481 options.
We use Sapim Race spokes and brass nipples as standard – we always use DT rim specific PHR washers on the inside of the PHR compatible nipples. If you would like to upgrade to CX Ray spokes this is just £90 – please contact us for this option.
Wheels are delivered tubeless ready with Muc-Off rim tape fitted
If you would like rims, hubs, spokes or nipples not included here, please contact us.
EX511 rims for AM / enduro use with 30mm internal width: Weight 535g (27.5″) or 570g (29″)
XM481 rims for trail use with 30mm internal width: Weight 490g (27.5″) or 525g (29″)
Hope Pro 5 hubs speak for themselves. Manufactured in the UK to the highest standard with the Pro 5 pushing the game on significantly.
Bitex are fantastic hubs which we use on all of our own wheels. Cheaper and 100g lighter than Hope yet we have found them equally as reliable and servicable.
Please see our hubs section for more info on each.
