This is a solid, light weight 26" XC carbon wheel set. Light enough to race on, or climb thousands of feet in a day, yet tough enough to be be everyday rideable. The rim specifically weighs in at 295g, has a 20mm inner width, has a gorgeous 3K weave pattern with a gloss coat with a UV inhibitor. The rims come with decals on them, (by us), but they are easy to remove, in case you'd prefer a clean look.
Hub Go all out with our fully convertible MTB D400 hubs. The D400 features 24 points of engagement with a 4 pawl free hub. We've been using this hub set now for 8 years, it's solid. The freehub can swap out between Sram and Shimano, (in case you swap bikes), and the end caps are convertible between a bunch of different axle standards. True, the 24 POE has been ecilipsed by many other higher POE count hubs that are currently in the marketplace. But these hold up over time.
Hub Update: These will now be built with Speed Tuned ST160 and ST280 hubs. These hubs improve upon two previous generations of outstanding Super 6 hubs, but now offer a larger engagement diameter designed to work with high torque loads of E-bike drivetrains, as well as 72 POE (5 degrees).
These wheels are built with DT Swiss Competition Double Butted 1.8/1.6/1.8 spokes in a 28 hole configuration front and rear with DT Swiss Alloy Silver 15g nipples.
Spoke and Nipple update: These will now be built with Sapim DLight double butted 2.0/1.65/2.0 spokes and Sapim Polyax alloy nipples and mated to a 3D formed stainless nipple washer, specifically designed to work with Sapim Polyax nipples.
Set Weight : 1360 grams pre tape & valves. Approx. 1395 with tape + valves, (varies slightly)
