The rim is 22.5mm deep and black in colour. It is a disc brake specific rim that is tubeless compatible so it supplied tubeless ready with tubeless tape.
This rim is 29mm internal width providing a very stiff wheel which also give wide tyres a lovely shape allowing you to deal with what ever the trail has in store for you.
Two wheel sizes are offered 650B and 29er.
You can choose between Shimano 8/9/10/11 speed or XD driver 11/12 speed freehubs.
The Novatec D791/D792 hubs offer 4 pawls engaging into a ratchet ring. The hubs will be set up for Q/R 100/135 mm spacing but thru axle versions are available (100x15/142x12mm). The hubs have 4 bearings in the rear hub and 2 in the front. The rear hub uses a 15mm alloy axle and has 6 bolt disc rotor fittings. It is a simple hub but that is why it is a good hub.
The DT Swiss 350 hubs use the twin star ratchet freehub mechanism which is as good as it gets and reliable bearings. but 100x15/142x12mm or 110x15mm/148x12mm boost is supplied as standard. DT Swiss offer a myriad of end cap solutions for nearly every standard. Centrelocks will be used unless you specify 6 bolt.
Spokes will be black Sapim Race with silver brass nipples. Brass nipples are picked because this wheelset is built to carry load. There is no weight limit.
Weight is ~1850g for the 650B wheelset and 1944g for the 29er wheelset.
Simply a solid wheelset that will do it all.
