New for 2017! Our new wheelset with WTB KOM i23 and i25 rims in 27.5" or 29er built onto our own Centre-Lock disk hubs.
Where grip and strength are your priorities the Gecko is the road-disk wheelset for you. With widths of 23 and 25mm the only limit is your frame clearance. We recommend a minimum tyre width for the i23 of 28c and i25mm of 30c. For a 25c tyre we recommend the i23 rims and for a 28c tyre either is a good fit. Either rim works well with cyclocross or gravel tyres.
A true chameleon this wheelset makes a classic cross-country mountain bike wheelset suitable for tyre widths of 2.1" in the i23 and running tyres up to 2.35 on the wider i25 rims.
Hubs are 6 pawl, 48 point engagement hubs with premium stainless bearings. 10 or 11sp Shimano compatible, 10-speed spacer included.
Built onto WTB KOM i23 or i25 rims in 650b and 700c.
