Stans Alpha 340 Miche supertype wheelset 18f/24R 1395g

Posted by Malcolm Borg

The Cycle Clinic has managed to get hold of a couple of pairs of Miche Supertype RS hubs. These hubs are normally found in the Supertype wheels but there they are in something else. I intend to order more of these hubs building with.


The Stan's Alpha 340 rim is 385g and as such needs hubs with good bracing angles to give a stiff wheel build. The Miche Supertype hubs is that hub. Becuase the spoke count is low Sapim Race spokes have been used and yes they are straight pulls. Wheel stiffness is good (I do built stiffer wheels though) but a you suspect these are for lighter rider (75kg or under). Weight is 1395g so it compares well to the Dura Ace C24 wheelset and will perform just as well. The rims like all the ones I use are wide internally (17mm) and like all stans rims are tubeless ready.

The hubs have a carbon fibre shell and use SKF bearings. They are 11 speed compatible and are available with a Campagnolo freehub if required.

The next wheelset with these hubs will be a carbon tubular build and another build with Pacenti SL23 rims.
The stans build is available to buy for £629 +shipping and is in stock (well there is one pair).
