The BWW CXD26 Road Disc wheel set is a light weight, clincher road disc option, (they are not tubeless). These rims are very light weight, yet offer a ton of strength. Road disc rims don't need to have "available material" and structure that wears away with time from brake pad contact. Thus, the rim material can be used in a more targeted manner. The CXD26 has a 26mm tall profile, is 20.5mm wide, and has a 16mm inner width.
We're building these wheels with Speed Tuned Super 6 MTB hubs, (contact us if you have a rare 130mm 6-bolt disc rear hub). The Speed Tuned Super 6 rear hub features 24 points of engagement, (15 degrees) via a 4 pawl free hub. The drive ring and pawls are overbuilt in terms of diameter, (drive ring), height, (drive ring + pawls), and materials, (quality stainless). Their bearing placement is proper, in terms of overall design meant to promote hub function and durability. Last but not least, these hubs offer both axle and drivetrain flexibility. The wheels only ship with one type of end caps and freehub installed, but additional options are available, allowing you to swap the wheel set in and out between bikes that might have different requirements.
With many of our wheel sets, we include an option for a spoke and nipple selection. This wheel set in particular is built specifically with a light weight spoke and nipple option that we feel offers an exceptional balance between component weight, performance, and cost. This wheel set is built with Wheel Smith silver stainless straight guage (15g = 1.8mm) J-bend spokes and silver alloy 15g nipples in a 32 hole, three cross configuration front and rear.
If you're looking for a great performance option to get you rolling, that won't set you back (financially) further than where you started, this wheel set is a great place to start.
