The rear wheel is built with a 2:1 lacing pattern with 16 spokes on the drive side and 8 on the non-drive-side for maximum strength and even spoke tensions.
Our J-bend wheelset is the lightest option and features lighter hubs with smaller flanges and bearings, the straight-pull hubs have larger bearings and flanges so offer a more durable hub and a stiffer ride quality although with a small weight penalty. We recommend the J-bend wheelset for riders up to 80kg and the straight-pull wheelset for riders up to 95kg. If you are looking for stronger wheels for touring or commuting try our Lark strong wheels with options for 24, 28 and 32 hole counts with no rider weight limits.
Rims and hubs now feature durable laser-etched graphics.
