Description

Where grip and light weight are your main priorities the Gecko carbon is the road-disk or gravel wheelset for you. With an internal width of 21mm the only limit is your frame clearance. We recommend a minimum tyre width of 25c on these rims and a maximum pressure of 80psi.

Hubs are 6 pawl, 48 point engagement hubs with premium stainless bearings.

Built onto our carbon Gecko rims in 700c. Rims are asymmetric for maximum strength and stiffness at very low weights, and are tubeless ready – supplied with tubeless tape fitted, valves available separately. The rims have a matt UD finish and no braking surface. We recommend minimum 25c tyres, which in the case of Schwalbe Pro Ones will measure up at 28mm wide on these 21mm internal rims.

The wheels are finished with tubeless rim tape but valves are extra. A crash replacement scheme applies to all JRA carbon wheelsets.

Verdict: Brilliant lightweight wheels that’ll take plenty of abuse from gravel tracks or rough roads

Overall score: These are a very good set of wheels from JRA, striking just the right balance between lightness for performance and strength for fast gravel riding or on the road. The build quality and finish represent decent value for money too.

Overall rating: 9/10
