HED Belgium + rims are 25mm wide (20.5mm internal width) and 25mm deep. The rim is probably one of the best looking rim about today in my opinion anyway and if you reading this you may agree. The rim is very stiff too which is a good thing for spoke life. Rims this wide will give a very stable ride at speed in the bends or cobbles.
Hubs offered here are Royce mid flanfe front 24h and Venus rear 28h. Roulyce hubs are made in England. They use an alloy hub shell that highly polished then anodized to give a satin finish. This is a corrosion resistant finish. The bearings are 6001 in the rear hub from ntn. In the front hub its 6901 like in the freehub. The axle is stainless steel. The freehub is made from titanium and it has three pawls. The axle.spacing is 130mm rear 100mm front. Other rear spacing are possible. These hubs are an masterpiece. Think of it as jewelry at the heart of your wheel.
Lacing is 2x front and rear. Spokes used are sapim cx ray in silver front and rear in silver again. Weight is 1670g
If using tubeless tyres please do not fully deflate the tyres when packing into a bike box the tyre might unseat making reinflation difficult. Thus is not rim I consider to be fully tubeless compatible. Leave tubeless tyre inflated until they have worn out. Fix the tyre externally with plugs. A spare tube therefore will help if the tubeless tyre flats where the tyre unseats when riding.
What you get
- Wheelset front and rear
- tubeless rim tape
- The best guarantee (for the life of the rim against spoke failure and anything that could be termed a defect)
