All of our wheels are handbuilt by an experienced wheel builder.
Rims: The DT Swiss E512 disc rims are tough which is why we have chosen them. They are constructed in aluminium with inner width of 25mm and outer of 30mm.
These are our chosen rim in both 27.5" and 700c/29er. If there is another rim you have in mind then let us know.
Hubs: The rims are built onto 32 hole XT M8000 hubs. They have centre lock disc mounts for secure braking and hassle free setup, the freehub has super quick engagement with pawl engagement every 10 degrees, giving an almost instant power transfer.
The bearings are double contact sealed with an internal grease sleeve to make sure the dirt and water doesn't get in, meaning longer lasting bearings that are constantly smooth. The bearings are cup and cone style, for durability, strength and smooth rotation and the cone bearing races have been Borozon treated for precision low-friction rolling capabilities. The axle is an oversized 14mm and has a quick release lever for easy adjustments.
Please note dynamo hubs are also an option.
Tyres: On the 27.5" rims we fit 2.35" Schwalbe Nobby Nics and on the 700c the Marathon Plus MTB 2.1". If you have another tyre in mind just let us know.
