H Plus Son Archetype wheelset with silver Novatec A171/F172 hubs


The H Plus Archetype rim comes in a lovely grey black or polished silver colour. I lace these up with silver Sapim spokes and silver Novatec A171/f172 hubs. the rims are 23mm wide and 25mm deep. They are stiff, in fact the wheels are very stiff and this helps prolongs spoke life.

The hubs are reliable as they use big 6901 cartridge bearings and are Shimano 8/9/10/11 speed compatible or 9/10/11 speed Campagnolo compatible. Given the alloy axle they are quite light too.

The 24F/28R build is radially laced on the front and 2x laced on the back. Sapim force spokes are used along with brass nipples through out. Weight 1680g

The 28F/32R build is 3x laced on the front and 3x laced on the rear. Sapim force spokes front and silver Sapim race spokes rear with brass nipples are used

32F/36R spoke build are laced 3x front and 4x rear and silver sapim force spokes are used all round. Although by request the even stiffer sapim strong can be used for those that are putting very high loads on the wheels.

Note we may subsisture pillar TB2018 is we run out of force. this spoke is the same butting as force and equivelent quality.

With the black rims black hubs and black spokes are used. With silver rims and grey rims silver hubs and spokes are used. 

These make smart wheel for any bike whether it be for racing, training or event use.There are no weight limit as such on these wheels. Heavy riders should go for the higher spoke counts though.

    Import duties which are set by the tarrif code we declare. Tarrif rates are normally published on government websites.

Good made outside the e.u and sold into the E.U attract tarrifs. The declared value in GDP will be converted to your countries currency by the monthly rate published by your tax authority.
