Snow Pig wheels

From: £222.00

Our ever-popular fat bike wheelset is available for all fat axle standards. Weight is a relative thing for fat bike wheels but these are a respectable 2480g for the 74mm rim width. The Sun Mulefut rims in both 26″ or 27.5″ will fit tyres up to 4.8ÔÇŁ and are tubeless compatible, with a secure bead lock to hold tyres on the rim at very low pressures.

Description

The fattest addition to our jra wheel range. These wheels use our JRA fat hubs in 135mm or 150mm front & 170mm or 190mm rear widths laced to Sun’s 80mm wide, tubeless compatible Mulefut rims for some of the lightest, toughest fat wheels we could build. From October 2018 we are using the new version of the Sun Mulefut with triangular cut-outs. If the rims are showing as out-of-stock (backorder) please contact us for a delivery date as supply can be erratic.

Hubs

The front jra hubs are interchangeable between 135mm QR, 135x15mm and 135x20mm (although we haven’t seen a 135x20mm axle….yet). There is also a 150x15mm front hub. Rear are 170mm QR or 135x12mm, 12x177mm or 12×190/197..

The rear hub uses a 54-point engagement freehub with 6 pawls operating in 2 sets of 3 engaging at any one time. Pawls are individually sprung for reliability and the bearings used are high quality stainless steel. Freehubs are interchangeable between Shimano and Sram XD, and all spares are available through our website.

Rims

The Sun Mulefut rims are relatively light weight, strong and have very reliable tubeless performance. The bead locks hold the tyre tight for no burping and make tubeless inflation very easy with a standard track pump. Tubeless sealing is achieved by installing the supplied nylon rimstrip and then applying a layer of duck tape / gorilla to the inside of the rim, across the whole width. We will supply these wheels set up for tubeless in this way, unless you request them not to be.

Spokes & nipples

Sapim D-Light spokes are light and tough, while Sapim spoke nipples are high quality and available in brass or aluminium.

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 wonÔÇÖt 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.
