BORG22T Disc Road/CX tubular tyre disc brake wheelset

£380.00


The BORG22T Disc wheelset is perfect for road and CX race bikes using disc brakes. The rim for tubular tyres only and is 23mm wide, 22mm deep. It is a stiff rim. Therefore wider tubular tyres are perfect for this rim. The tyres shown are Dugast Rhino and Typhoon but these have to be selected in the drop-down menu. You will need to allow for tyres being out of stock sometimes. More will always be coming though. If I have to order it generally takes 3 weeks to get stock from Dugast.

Highlights:

  • A robust all weather wheelset.
  • Reliable cartridge bearing hubs
  • Stiff yet comfortable.
  • Triple butted Sapim spokes.
  • Shimano, XD driver or Campagnolo freehub.
  • 16000km warranty
  • Weight 1640g
  • Centrelock disc brake mounts.6 bolt adapter available here.
  • Centrelock rotor lockring available here.

If the tubular tyre's are opted for with the wheels I will glue them for you and mount them. The cost of gluing with Vittoria Mastik one is included in the price of the wheels. 

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

You will need to inform me of the axle standard combination required at checkout.

A review here

These are stiff and light wheels for CX racing or general road use. 

The hubs used are BORG DX with centrelock rotor mounts.

Q/R, 100x12/15mm and 142x12mm compatible in any combination. Just tell me at checkout what you need.

6 bolt adapters made by Miche are available. The rear hub is supplied with a Shimano external spline lockring.  Freehub bodies for Shimano 8/9/10/11 speed MTB or road, Campagnolo 9/10/11/12 speed, and SRAM XD driver are available and are interchangeable with nothing more than possible bearing preload adjustment.

The freehub has a titanium core/pawl seat springs with an aluminium alloy main body. The freehub has 3 spring loaded pawls and a 30T ratchet ring. It is advisable to re-grease the freehub mechanism with good grease like Rock n Roll Super Slick or Super Web to keep the hub quiet and to stop water ingress weakening the spring. 

Why BORG DX hubs? Well, I have had Miche make these in 24H, 28H, and 32H drillings. They are a large flange design because large flange hub reduces the braking loads on the spokes compared to small flange designs. The bearings are not the normal ISO grade 0 or ABEC-5 (enduro) that you find in many hubs even high-end ones. SKF supply the bearings for the BORG DX hub but these bearings have much tighter tolerances on the outer and inner diameters, the seals, the balls are to a much higher standard, even the grease is a special formulation. All this is designed to increase bearing longevity particular in wet weather operation. To get the longest life, pressure washing the hubs should be avoided and the cassette should be cleaned removed from the hub. The front hub has 2x 6803 bearings and the rear hub has 1x 6803 non-drive side and 2x 6803 drive side. The freehub body has 2x 6803 bearing. The same high-grade bearings are used throughout the hub. All spares down to the ratchet ring are available. Simply I have had these hubs made without compromise. 

It is advisable if using Shimano made cassettes to tighten the lockrings up really right. RTF is what I call it. 40 to 50 Nm is required. For a Miche cassette for Shimano 40Nm is sufficient as these notch less easily. If you don't own a good torque wrench get a mechanic to fit the cassette for you. The freehubs are expensive, no need to ruin prematurely. 

Available in  28F/28R spoke count.

Weight of the 28F/28R BORG22T DISC wheelset is 1640g

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 spokes. This means 32 spoke wheels have the spoke life of a 36 spoke wheel. What is not to like about that? The nipples uses black Sapim alloy self locking nipples. The nipples can be easily turned with a 4 sided spoke key but won't vibrate loose by themselves. Sapim alloy nipples don't break. I have used tens thousands now. 

What you get

  • 28F/28R BORG22T disc 23mm wide 22mm deep rims Sapim Force spokes,SILS nipples with BORG DX hubs for Q/R, 100x12mm/15 or 142x12mm frame and forks.
  • Please let me know the axle standard at checkout. 
  • Campagnolo 9/10/11/12 speed shimano 8/9/10/11 speed or SRAM XD driver freehub bodies.
  • 5 year or 10,000 miles guarantee against spoke failure (anything reasonable covered too). The rims won't wear out so I can't do a guarantee for the life of the rim that might be a very long time.
