Strada says – an incredibly versatile wheel which will instantly improve the ride quality, comfort and performance of your road disc, CX or gravel bike. This rim is a versatile multi terrain option for those cyclists wanting a disc wheel to do a bit of everything and with a weight of 460g it is designed to withstand higher tyre pressures. It looks good with a full black finish.
Rim – The new DT Swiss R460DB rim can take up to 100psi, making it suitable for road and mixed terrain riding. At 23mm wide and 23mm deep it is finished in satin black and is tubeless ready. This rim works really well with a 25 to 33c tyre and a lower psi for all day comfort.
Hubs – the Novatec 771 + 772 hubs are light, have good flange placement for a strong build, are Shimano / SRAM 10-11 speed ready (spacer supplied) and are fitted with the ABG (anti bite guard) freehub. They have good quality press fit Japanese made EZO bearings which we load with quality grease. These can be swapped easily by a competent home mechanic. They can be specified with QR or 15 / 142×12 Thru axle end caps. SRAM XD driver on request.
Spokes + Nipples – we use Alpina black bladed spokes and black plated brass nipples.
QR or 142×12 + 15mm – the latest generation of road disc bikes are now often 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 Novatec 771 + 772 hubs can be fitted with either QR or Thru axle.
Weight per pair is 1675g including rim tape, 28 spoke front and rear, laced two cross all sides.
