Great wheels, hand built in Sussex at a competitive price point. These are a good first upgrade wheelset for your road bike. We use the 23mm wide DT Swiss R460 rim and the robust Miche Primato hub with a combination of Alpina black bladed spokes and silver brass nipples for a performance orientated wheelset which weighs 1705 grams. Quick releases, rim tape and true for life warranty included. Max rider weight 90 kg. Available with Shimano 9-10-11 speed or Campagnolo freehubs.
Rim – the DT Swiss R460 rim is 23mm wide and 25mm deep. It is tubeless ready and finished in black with a silver machined sidewall. The width allow you to run your tyres at a lower pressure for increased comfort (with or without inner tubes!).
Hubs – Miche Primato Syntesi road hubs are made in Italy with a forged aluminium hub body and AL7075-T6 freehub. 12mm steel axles and 6001/6901 sealed cartridge bearings make them suitable for heavy loads and cyclocross/winter use.
Mechanics appreciate Miche Primato Syntesi road hubs as they have a long life span and can be fully serviced, dismantled with two 5mm allen keys, bearing preload is controlled by a 2mm allen key. Available in Campagnolo (9/10/11 speed) or Shimano (9/10/11 speed) compatible.
The freehub is compatible with Miche’s standard sealed free hub body, so shops and users can quickly replace or change the hub from Campagnolo to Shimano-SRAM 11/10/9 speed. It really only takes 2 minutes and no special tools are required.
Hub adjustment is also easily achieved with Miche’s adjustable hub lock system.
Also new for 2016 is Miche new Silent Running freehub, now featuring 30 teeth, new free hubs paws and a stronger spring. When freewheeling these hubs are super smooth and noise free, the other befit of this new freehub is the speed of pick and hub engagement when you start pedalling after freewheeling, engagement is now 50% faster.
