Description

With a modern 28mm internal width and weighing as little as 1400g for a 29er wheelset, our latest asymmetric XC wheels give the best of all worlds. You will notice huge improvements to the feel and handling of your bike – so much more than just the weight saving in comparison to alloy rims.

Only available as 29er on the website but if you require 27.5 please ask. 

Please note that we highly recommend brass nipples as the extra longevity these provide over alloy is well worth the 40g weight penalty. However, as most competitors offer alloy nipples as standard we are offering them as an option in order to keep weight comparrisons on a level playing field

Approx weights for wheelsets (including rim tape and tubeless valves):

Bitex hubs:          alloy nipples = 1400g       brass nipples = 1440g

Hope Pro 4 hubs:  add 100g to Bitex wheelset weights

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 Bitex hubs which we believe stand out from the crowd and both with their particular strengths unmatched by any other brands – reliability, longevity and serviceability being a high priority with all designs.

28 Sapim CX Ray spokes make up each wheel. These are the lightest, strongest and most expensive spokes on the market used by the likes of ENVE and Zipp. How many other spokes on the market are light enough for carbon road wheels and strong enough for World Championship winning downhill wheels?!

Until you have ridden with carbon wheels you cannot appreciate the huge advantages in handing and ride quality they offer. Stiffer rims improves steering accuracy, tracking and speed while the vibration absorbing properties of carbon smooth out your ride and your bike will ride noticeably quieter.

Prices include free UK delivery.

    I have bought 4 sets of these wheels now that my Son has raced in the domestic Uk national series and international races abroad, Stuart is the most helpful guy and customer service is 2nd to none! We have run both Hope and Bitex hubs favouring the Bitex, just won the cannock classic on the Bitex set up. Bulletproof wheels at a crazy cheap price. Thanks a lot Stuart…
