This wheelset is built for all riders using Sapim spokes. It is low cost wheelset that comes with my usual guarantee for the life of the rims agsinst fatigue spoke failure. If I am to put a weight limit on it it is 120kg.
The DT Swiss R460 rims has a robust rim for tubed tyres. While DT Swiss describe it as tubeless compatible, I don't. A tubeless tyre fitted to it will seat and seal but you may have difficulty inflating and without a bead lock feature in the rim the tyre will probably unseat if you loose air. This means I supply this wheelset with velox cloth rim tape and I do not support tubeless tyre fitting to this rim.
The rim is 23mm wide and 23mm deep. It is suitable for tyre from 23mm to 40 mm.
This allow me to offer a low cost wheelset. Two hubsets are offered in silver.
1) Shimano Tiagra RS400 silver hubs - 32H low cost 8/9/10/11 speed hubs with good sized ball bearings that if your service will out last the rim. If you want to improve long term reliability replace the ball bearings with grade 10 chrome steel balls and use Rock n Roll super web grease. That can be done at the first service and costs not alot.
2) Novatec A171/F172 silver hubs - these are offered in 32H drilling (lower spoke counts are available) with a Campagnolo 9/10/11/12 speed or Shimano 8/9/10/11 speed freehub bodies. These are cartridge bearing hubs where replacement bearings cost £5. They are 120g lighter than the Tiagra hubs but the reason to pick them is for Campagnolo freehub compatability. Black hubs can be substituted at no extra cost.
The spokes used are silver sapim race. Weight is around 1935g with the Tiagra hubs and 1815g with the novatec hubs
