P R I M Ø
The P R I M Ø wheelset is designed as our All-Round / Winter training wheel. It features DT Swiss sleeved rims that are both lightweight and tubeless ready. We use double butted spokes to keep the weight and cost low but the strength high. We build these with a choice of Hope RS4/Pro4 (nice and noisy with a choice of colours) or DT Swiss 350 (quiet) hubs. These are generally built with 32 spokes in a 3x pattern – strong, light and reliable. Use the contact form below to start building your perfect HWEÓLS...
H U B S Ë R V I C E
Modern bicycle hubs are fantastic things and are much easier to live with than older units, but they are seldom maintenance free. Some hubs require expensive specialist tools, lubricants and knowledge to properly care for them. What some shops call a hub service is little more than a checkover, but of course we offer the full custom stripdown and rebuild. Dependant upon your requirements, we can rebuild or replace sealed bearings for specific conditions with a choice of greases, repair or replace pawls and pawl springs, and upgrade/service/replace components to improve your wheels.
S U P R E M É
S U P R E M É wheels represent the very pinnacle of alloy racing wheels; DT Swiss PHR style welded rims are the best quality alloy rims available. These are laced with bladed spokes, which are both lighter and stronger than a traditional round spoke. Brass or alloy nipples are used depending upon riding style and to suit the rider. Hope Pro4/RS4 Hubs are tried, tested and reliable favorites, but we also offer an upgrade option to the lighter DT Swiss 240 hub (saving up to 143g per pair). Spoke patterns and counts are chosen based upon application to build the best wheels for the individual. Use the contact form below to start building your perfect HWEÓLS...
U L T I M Ä T E
As the name suggest U L T I M Ä T E wheels are built when compromise just isn't an option. Carbon rims are the very best in terms of their strength to weight ratio, outperforming even the best alloy rims available. Bladed spokes as standard. Brass or alloy nipples specced along with spoke count and pattern to suit the individual rider. As with all our wheels we use the Hope Pro4/RS4 Hubs, but for U L T I M Ä T E we also offer a DT Swiss 180 upgrade which will save you an average of 201g per pair! Commonly these wheels come with bespoke finishing touches to subtly match your bike. Use the contact form below to start building your perfect HWEÓLS...
