The Skyelander Rohloff disc rim is the Ryde Andra 321 700c 32 hole rim. 

​The DT Swiss GR531 disc rim is an upgrade option.

All Andra rims are built to withstand and carry more load than regular rims so they’re excellent on a touring bike like the Skyelander. The internal width for the Andra 321 is 21 millimetres for more stability with tyres 28mm upwards. The higher profile also adds a surplus of stiffness to the design. 

All of our wheels are handbuilt in Sussex. Wheels hand built by an experienced builder can significantly increase their strength versus those machine built. The front wheel is built on the sealed and durable Shimano Deore XT hub using stainless steel spokes. The double contact sealing of the XT hub with its internal grease sleeve helps to keeps out water and dirt from the bearings maximising the smoothness and longevity whilst keeping the grease in place. The Borozon treated cup and cone bearing races deliver precision low-friction rolling and durability. 

For the rear, we use particular spokes specified by Rohloff for the Speedhub, along with specific lacing, as well as brass nipples (we use brass nipples on all of our wheels).

We only use Schwalbe inner tubes, due to their excellent quality. The tyres are the 35mm wide Schwalbe Marathon Mondials.
