DT Swiss RR 411 rims –
An impressively lightweight, all round disc road rim with an 18 mm internal diameter for wider tyres. Low profile design and PHR spoke interface reduce weight without sacrificing performance and handling. 21mm deep and 410g per rim.
Can be run either with standard clinchers or road tubeless tyres using DT Swiss tubeless tape and valves.
Shimano Dura Ace hubset
A superb range of hubs the world’s largest components manufacturer, Shimano have been on the scene long enough to know exactly how to make a decent hub. 105 hubs are 32-spokes per wheel only and heavy, but can be used to hammer in nails all day long – they’ll last for years. Likewise, Ultegra, but a chunk lighter. Likewise Dura-Ace, but very light, available in lower spoke counts, super reliable and fast.
Sapim Laser spokes
(4.25g per spoke) is the lightest spoke available and although strong if built correctly within a wheel, is the weaker of the three spoke options. Asthetically, Laser spokes are skinny and beautiful, though is normally only recommended for sub-75kg riders, though with the addition of Sapim Race spokes on the rear non-drive side, the maximum rider weight goes up to 85kg – 95kg
