The recipe for this wheel set is simple, use some of the best quality rims, hubs, spokes, and nipples in the world. That's it. True, there are many other wheels out there that are more aero, or lighter, or this or that. But if you stray to far from these, you quickly have to make some sort of trade off.
These wheels are built with DT Swiss R460 rims. R460's are 23mm tall, 23mm wide, and have an 18mm inner tubeless ready profile. You can still run inner tubes if you want to, but tubeless is no problem. These rims are strong, durable, and respectively light weight at, you guessed it, 460g. (DT manufacturers precise components, their published rim weights are on the mark.)
Still not enough? You'll find Shimano Dura-Ace 7900 series, (8/9/10 speed), hubs at the center of these wheels. They're one of the nicest road hub sets available anywhere, the internals are finished like jewels. 7900 Dura-Ace hubs were the first DA series to offer a preload adjustment. (Finally, life is good...). Laced with DT Swiss silver double butted Competition 2.0/1.8mm spokes, and silver alloy nipples. From start to finish, these wheels exude precision components, quality, and dedication. If you like nice wheels, you should pick up a set before they're gone.
