The BWW V HD with Shimano Alivio disc 27.5" / 650b mountain bike wheel set is both V-brake and 6-bolt disc compatible. The V HD rim has a 24mm wide inner, with thick sidewalls to boot. Perfect for cruising along at the beach, to the local convenience store, or jumping off your neighbor's roof; your choice really, just don't hurt yourself. The V HD rim's sidewalls are rim brake compatible, but they are anodized black, so the rim has a solid black appearance.
These wheels are built with 36 spokes front and rear laced three cross, using DT Swiss black stainless steel spokes, (14g = 2.0mm), and brass chrome plated nipples.
Shimano Alivio hubs are 6-bolt disc compatible. Given that the rim is rim brake compatible, these wheels will work with bikes that have either disc brakes or rim brakes, or both if that's your thing. All rear hubs are compatible with Shimano MTB 8/9/10/11 speed cassettes. This wheel set has been designed to offer flexibility in brake options, super reliability in terms of ownership, and versatility in reference to 27.5" / 650b tire and tube selection. We're not joking around. Cuz' there's thunder in your heart Ready to break the ice?
