Core series wheels

Our back to basics wheel range, we've cut out the frills - such as colours and kept to simpler specs to keep the price down. But we haven't compromised on the build quality or the wheels core functionality, hence the name Core wheels.
  • TPI steel bearings not TPI stainless steel - Excellent bearing without the top prices we pay for stainless
  • Sapim silver brass pro-lock nipples used throughout - These reduce the wheel building time by being non-binding
  • J-bend hubs The lowest price and most reliable hubs in our range
    Limited options allow us to build multiple wheels at once saving time in the workshop.
  • Limited logos Smaller logos that take less time to etch

All our wheels are still handbuilt in our York workshop with the same high quality of finish, backup and warranty you would expect.
