Why We Make This
In any wheel lineup you have to have a stiff, aerodynamic wheel that rolls fast and is tough as nails This is ours. It’s a beguiling balance of lateral stiffness and low rolling weight, a heady cocktail of high technology and design simplicity. Some things just make sense, and this is one of them.
Why You Want It
Well, you like to go fast. That’s for starters. But you’re a renaissance rider too, who loves to sprint, climb, and everything in-between (like stop for coffee). You love to fly down steep descents and rail turns even when you’re not racing (your friends). The new ENVE 3.4 rim is tubeless compatible, which reduces rolling resistance, weight and ride-killing flats. It’s also optimized for wider tires, which you want, because you ride like a bat out of hell.
We talked about ENVE’s rim first, because they’re our partners, and we’re polite.
Another reason you want this wheelset is that it’s built around our R45D Centerlock hubs, the culmination of over 30 years of bearing experience and more than 20 years of hub building experience. It features a redesigned RingDrive™ system with 45 teeth for lower drag and near instant engagement, a lightweight hub body, and our legendary made-in-house bearings.
Those bearings by the way, 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.
