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 are Miche Primato, Carbon Ti X-hub road or campagnolo record hubs.
24F/28R Miche Primato - big 6001 cartridge bearings and a pre load adjuster. Simple well made hubs on a budget. Black CX-ray spokes front and CX sprint spokes for the rear wheel. Weight 1645g.

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 and unseats when riding.
Sorry about the pics it is the only example I have of a build with Miche Primato hubs and another with record hubs and round spokes.
What you get

- The best guarantee (for the life of the rim against spoke failure and anything that could be termed a defect).
