Why We Make This
We came out with our own wheel because we got the opportunity to participate in the development of a new rim, a rim that is of outstanding quality, is tuned to our performance specs, and is made of a recyclable material that doesn’t add to landfills keeping us in line with our commitment to the environment and being a certified B - corp. Performance, good looks, minimal carbon impact, AND backed up by a lifetime warranty? Yes please.
Why You Want It
The MTN30 trail/all mountain wheel tracks better in hard corners and is more stable at high-speeds due to the dynamic compliance provided by FusionFiberTM a groundbreaking thermoplastic alternative to traditional carbon fiber. This is a versatile wheel for riders who ride every kind of terrain, though these are NOT DH wheels.
We paired the MTN30 with our Boost Centerlock hubs and their 72-points of simultaneous engagement. That makes these wheels super efficient at transferring your power to the ground. We throw in one-piece solid axles to provide a stiff hub with rail accurate steering. So you’ve got a light, comfort-oriented, high performance wheelset that will accommodate a lot of tires. It’s really a tremendous value for the rider who just wants to ride bikes all day. That sounds like you.
Finally, our bearings, both steel and ceramic, have heat-treated, surgical grade steel races that are machined simultaneously to ensure perfect matching. The quality and speed of our bearings is what you will feel (and hear) on every ride. As Chris King bearing tracks burnish they actually get faster. A little bit of regular love (i.e. service) will keep this hub rolling for years upon years of demanding use.
This wheelset comes with the legendary angry-bee sound and you can choose from a bunch of sharp hub colors, including basic black.
