Sportive Wheels | light, responsive, comfortable

We wanted to build a pair of sportive wheels which were light, responsive and all day comfortable. We are really happy with the result: 1472g a pair, 24 radial front and 28 hole 2 cross both sides rear built with black bladed Alpina spokes and black alloy nipples, Aivee SR2 hubs with either Shimano 10-11 speed or Campagnolo freehubs. The Mavic Open Pro 2017 rim is 19mm internal width rim for comfort and works perfectly with a 25c tyre.

Description

We wanted to build a pair of sportive wheels which were light, responsive and all day comfortable. When we saw the new Mavic Open Pro 2017 we knew we had the right rim. We selected the Aivee SR2 hub which is light, good value and performs well. Combine this with the quality Mavic Open Pro 2017 rim and Alpina black bladed spokes and alloy nipples for a great pair of light, responsive, comfortable sportive wheels with a true for life warranty.

1472g a pair (no rim tape or QRs) and available with Shimano 10-11 speed or Campagnolo freehubs. They are fitted with Pressfit bearings and we can supply spare freehubs for easy maintenance. We recommend Swissstop BXP brake pads for the best brake performance and rim longevity.

Aivee SR2 Hubs

The Aivee SR2 hubs are fully machined from anodised aluminium and have cleverly angled flanges to optimise spoke tension to compensate for 11 speed road cassettes moving the drive side flange closer to the centre of the hub. Strada notice the benefit with improved drive side spoke tensions resulting in better wheel performance. 

Rear hub weight: 238g

Fitted with low-friction double-sealed HCH® press fit bearings.

Pawl – cranked ring with 30 notches of nitrided steel for a longer life.

Japanese manufactured freehub body with 3 ratchets and THR technology (Exclusive to Aivee).

Front hub 

The Aivee SR2 hubs are fully machined from anodised aluminium and have oriented flanges to optimise spoke tension. Their geometry is the result of close collaboration between the Aivee designers and the wheel-builder Asterion for optimum wheel efficiency.

Fitted with low-friction double-sealed HCH® press fit bearings.

Front hub weight: 87g

Mavic Open Pro 2017 

The 2017 Mavic Open Pro rims are now UST tubeless compatible and are 19mm internal width (which is 4mm wider than the previous version). They feature an S.U.P. welded joint and stainless steel spoke eyelets and weigh 420 grams. 

Most notably, the 2017 Mavic Open Pro moves from the traditional double walled box section rim shape to a more modern ISM4D profile. That of course is Mavic’s proprietary machining technique that is said to optimise the rim shape for lightweight strength and is the reason for the distinctive wavy design.

UST Tubeless certification. Tubeless is achieved with rim tape so that the rims can be easily built with standard spokes and nipples.

Note – Mavic recommend a 25c tyre and max 85 psi. 

You can upgrade from a choice of quality hubs including DT Swiss 240 on request.
