31mm Deep Light Aluminum wheels.


A light set of training or racing wheels with good aerodynamics.  You may want them as a light set of training wheels to preserve your precious carbon wheels and save them for race day, or simply you may like the reliability, simplicity of use and excellent braking characteristics of aluminum rims. 


At 1540 grams per pair in clincher and tubeless compatible rims, this wheelset will not weigh you down. It compares well in weight with some of the best aluminum wheelsets from the big brands and well as with many basic 50mm deep carbon clincher wheelsets.


It is also a dramatic upgrade without breaking the bank from the heavy (well over 1800 grams), entry-level OEM wheelsets (like Mavic Aksiums or Shimano RS11) that too often make otherwise good medium level bikes feel sluggish...


31mm rim depth provides some aero benefit. 24mm external width and 19mm internal width for optimal profile with wider (25 to 28mm) modern clincher or tubeless tires for more comfort and more road grip.

Aluminum brake track delivers well know reliable braking performance.


Sapim D-Light light and double butted spokes (2.0-1.65-2.0mm, 5.2 gram each with 0.4 gram 7075 alloy nipples).  Keep both weight and cost under control. 


300grams/pair Light Bitex hubset 

86 grams RAF12 front hub with 20 radial spokes.

215 grams RAR12 rear hub with 24 2-cross spokes


Freehub (all standards): 

Patented 6 pawls freehub working in two pairs for 48 engagement points per revolution. 

- Shimano HG 10/11 (with anti-bite stainless steel strip to protect the alloy freehub)

- SRAM XD (for 11 road and 11/12 MTB cassettes)

- SRAM XDR (for 12 speed AXS road and XLPR Gravel)
