Description

Our fastest road wheelset yet, named after one of the fastest fish in the ocean. Like the fast fish, the streamlined shape of our Mahi mahi wheelset cuts through the air for faster riding in races, chaingangs or just riding along.

Go aero with our super fast new carbon road wheelsets. Built for speed and strength these wheels will perform in all conditions including rain and wind.

Built around our lightweight jra hubs with 20 Sapim CX-Ray spokes front, 24 rear, the Mahi Mahi available in 55mm depth. The rims feature an ultra flat, non-textured braking surface for consistent, powerful braking in all conditions. The rims feature a tubeless profile for use with any road tubeless tyre, and are equally at home with standard tyres and tubes. Wheels are taped ready for tubeless or standard tyres. Valves are available separately – please note that these rims require 80mm valves.

The rear wheels feature our 2:1 spoke lacing pattern with 16 spokes on the drive side, and 8 on the non-drive side. This solves the problem of uneven spoke tensions on rear wheels caused by the offset required for the cassette (wheel dish) and gives our 24-spoke wheels similar strength to conventionally laced 28 or 32 spoke wheels.

Pair of J-bend hubs: 260g
Pair of SP hubs: 284g

about your wheels

custom built wheels

This wheelset is built to order. We hold most parts in stock and build them after you have ordered. The build time is advertised on the front page on under the title.

what’s included

  • Wheels are set-up with the axles and freehub you have selected.
  • All wheels have tubeless tape applied.
  • There are no additional parts provided.

build quality

During the building process all components are bedded in, stretched, and tensioned repeatedly so the wheels won’t go out of true. We inspect, check and finish every wheel with equal care.

handbuilt in the UK

We built the wheels in our York, UK workshop.
