BORG22 Disc (Road/CX) wheelset front and rear (heavy/touring rider) - 32 spoke

£303.00


The BORG22 disc brake wheelset is designed/built for high miles and riders over 100kg. Based around a rim from Kinlin and, Shimano or Bitex hubs this wheelset deploys all the tricks to enable it to handle what ever roads you ride on for as long as you want to ride on them. They wheels are more than suitable for CX/gravel use too. 

The wheels can be built for the Cannondale 6mm offset rear used in one of there CX bikes.

If you pick tyres let me know the tyre width you want in the notes at checkout or send an email. 

Available with a choice of freehub Shimano 8/9/10/11 speed, campagnolo 9/10/11 speed or SRAM XD 11 speed drivers. Thru axle compatibility with 100x9mm, 100x12, 100x15, 135x10mm, 135x12mm and 142x12mm. Standard 100/135mm Q/R compatability too. 

Let me know the axle standard you require in the notes at checkout. 

Available in  32F/32R spoke count

Weight of the with Shimano RS505 C/L hubs is 1865g

Weight of the 32F/32R with Bitex B106F/R C/L hubs 1765g

Weight of the 32F/32R with Miche hubs 1775g

Weight of 32F/32R wheelset with Shimano RS770 hubs is 1825g

The rim is 435g in weight and is 19mm wide internally 24mm external width. It is 22mm deep and is tubeless ready (stan's rim tape is installed on every wheelset). Normal clinchers can be run of course. The rim is an offset for the front and rear design which means improved spoke tension balance. This one trick to extend spoke life. 

I can build these wheels with a variety of hubs. 

Shimano RS505 hubs 

  • low cost and reliable
  • Q/R only 
  • 11 speed road compatible
  • centrelock rotor mount

Bitex 106F/106R hubs are the centrelock option

  • reliable Bitex 6 pawl freehub body.
  • Centrelock rotor fitting,
  • Cartridge bearings
  • they are thru axle compatible kit include for 100x9mm, 100x12mm,100x15mm, 135x10mm, 135x12mm, 142x12mm or 100/135mm Q/R. Let me know what you require.
  • 8/9/10/11 speed Shimano road freehub or Campagnolo 9/10/11 speed freehub
  • 15mm alloy axle

Shimano R7070 105 hubs

  • Centrelock rotor mounts
  • quiet freehub mechanism,
  • 142x12/100x12mm 
  • 11 speed shimano freehub (steel)
  • service these hubs and they will stellar miles.

    Shimano RS770 ultegra hubs

    • Centrelock rotor mounts
    • quiet freehub mechanism,
    • 142x12/100x12mm 
    • 11 speed shimano freehub (steel)
    • service these hubs and they will stellar miles.

        Essentially they are all very good hubs.

        The spoke and nipples are the last trick. Black Sapim Force triple butted 2.0/1.8/2.2mm (at the elbow where it matters) give long service life. The elbow being 2.2mm in diameter has 21% more cross sectional area than a sapim race or DT Swiss Competition spoke.  What is not to like about that? The nipples used are silver Sapim brass nipples. 

        So in short this wheelset uses all the tricks I know to create a stiff reasonably light but robust wheelset that will give you smiles for miles. I deploy all the tricks as tubeless tyres compress tubeless compatible rims (tight fitting standard clinchers do too) and this cause a significant tension drop that must be accounted for when building the wheel. I cannot raise the tension as some tyres cause a bigger drop than others. So tricks to improve tension balance and extend spoke life are a better way of creating a reliable wheel for all riders regardless of the tyres they choose to fit. 

        Roadlites available in 23mm and 25mm.

        All formula pro tyres available in 25mm and 28mm width (real width on a wide rim)
