This is a disc brake specific wheelset that is black in colour, tubeless ready and ready and has 110/148mm boost spacing.
The high spoke count and the triple butted spokes make this wheelset trail ready and suitable for E bikes or 100% human power. The hub is made to handle 550Nm of torque. Hence an it can be used in your E bike and in your XC bike.
The large hub flanges minimise spoke tension changes and the triple butted spokes along with the brass nipples and washers ensure the whole wheel is reliable.
Tyre width up to 2.4" make sense with this rim. 2.0" to 2.2" tyres are perfect.
The hubs used are Miche XM550 with 6 bolt rotor mounts.
Freehub bodies for
- Shimano 8/9/10/11speed
- Shimano micro spline 12 speed
- XD 11/12 speed driver
are available and are interchangeable with nothing more than possible bearing preload adjustment.
The hub use SKF made bearings but not the normal grade 0 bearing you would get from a bearing supplier. These bearings are made to much tighter tolerances and therefore provide longer life.
The freehub has a steel core/pawl seat springs with an aluminium alloy main body. the hub uses a large ratchet ring and this along with the big teeth and pawls are the key the high torque rating.
It is also advisable to correctly torque your cassette lockring. If this is done to the correctly the freehub won't notch. If it isn't it might.
The hub provides 30 points of engagement. This is key to the high torque rating. More point of engagement means a lower torque rating and increased risk of drive failures.
Hub mass is only 480g.
Spokes will be black Sapim Force with brass nipples. Spoke nipples washers are used to ensure the rim won't crack.
