The 32 hole rims have a tall wedge shape to themselves, which greatly increases their strength. The rims are 28mm wide, and are 26mm tall and 12mm wide at their base. I really liked the white color of the rims, as they tended to blend with most forks, and showed dirt a lot less than the typical black rims.
They have one white spoke (the rest is black) which points to the valve hole, so no more wondering where the valve is at when you need to check your tire pressure or fill your tires. I can’t count how many times I have to do the old twirl the tire until I see the valve stem.
15mm Thru Axle Disc 100mm
The front is a 15mm specific hub, which is new to their product line. Like many other wheel and fork companies, they have joined onto the 15mm bandwagon. Although I wasn’t able to weigh the hub by itself, when I examined the 15mm hub at Interbike last year it was very light and was supposed to weigh around 116 grams.
The hub uses 17mm axle and 17mm bearings with double seals, and is forged out of one piece of aluminum. I found the hub to be a very stout and durable, and they were always ready for rolling along the trail.
Rollin’, rollin’, rollin’
Though the streams are swollen
Keep them dogies rollin’
Rain and wind and weather
Hell-bent for leather
Wishin’ my gal was by my side.
All the things I’m missin’,
Good vittles, love, and kissin’,
Are waiting at the end of my ride
