‘The first thing that struck me is how direct and precise the BF37/31 wheels felt….’ Singletrack review 07.12.2018 – read the full review HERE
37mm outer and 30.5mm inner width asymmetric rims, 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 in comparison to alloy rims.
Approx. wheelset weights:
With Hope hubs 27.5 Sapim CX Ray: 1720g; 27.5 Sapim Race: 1810g; 29er Sapim CX Ray: 1790g 29er Sapim Race: 1880g
With Industry Nine 1/1 hubs: subtract 20g from Hope wheelset weight
With Industry Nine Hydra Classic hubs: Subtract 50g from Hope wheelset weight
Rims are constructed from unidirectional Toray T700 carbon and have a hookless bead inner profile. They are asymmetric to give closer to equal spoke tensions on each side of the wheel for an even stiffer, stronger wheel.
We build our wheels on Hope and Industry Nine hubs, 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 on the rear and 28 spokes on the front.
