The BORG35 Disc is a wheelset made for abuse. Wide, stiff and uncompromising. Ride mountains, enduro or load them up and go touring.
The rim is 19mm 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.
The Shimano XT M8000 or M8010 hubs for Q/R or 100x15/142x12/148x12 are also offered. These are centrelock hub compatible with 10/11 speed MTB cassettes and 10 speed road cassettes.
Spokes will be black Sapim Force with silver brass nipples. Brass nipples are picked because this wheelset is built to carry load. There is no weight limit.
Weight is ~1950g for the 650B wheelset and 1980g for the 29er wheelset.
Simply a solid wheelset that will do it all.
