David’s carbon and HED wheelsets

Posted on Posted in Customer builds

David from Kent sent me two sets of hubs to have some wheels built – one a set of Hope Pro III’s for building onto a set of Farsport 38mm carbon rims and the other, a set of Chris King R45 hubs for building onto HED Belgium Plus rims. They were both laced up with Sapim CX-Ray black spokes and brass nipples and weighed in at 1565g for the Hope / carbon wheels and 1499g for the Chris King / HED wheels. 

 

David used the HED wheels for a trip in the USA – a multi day ride in the Rocky Mountains and thought they were ‘smooth as silk’.
