We wanted to offer a value for money carbon tubular wheelset for disc users and this is it. The 25mm wide full carbon U profile rim is finished in matt UD and has good contact area for gluing tubulars. They weigh 1465g a pair.
The Novatec 771 + 772 hubs are light, have good flange placement for a strong build, are 10-11 speed ready (spacer supplied) and are fitted with the ABG (anti bite guard) freehub. They have good quality press fit bearings and can be swapped easily by a competent home mechanic. We use Sapim D-Light spokes in black with black alloy nipples with plastic lock insert for durability. Can be specified with QR or Thru axle end caps.
QR or 142×12 + 15mm – the latest generation of CX bikes like the Giant TCX and Focus Mares are now being produced with beefier rear 142 x 12 and 12 or 15mm front thru axles to reduce frame and fork flex. Check the manufacturer’s specification or check with us if you are in doubt over the correct end caps required. The standard Novatec 771 + 772 hubs, DT Swiss 350s or 240s and Hope EVO 4 can be fitted with either QR or thru axle.
