One of the best things you can do for your bike is to upgrade the wheels. But there's so many options, and so many of them just don't hit the value ratio quite right, especially if you're not sprinting for the money in criteriums every weekend. Enter the basic road wheel. Built with light, stiff rims from Kinlin in Taiwan, you'll be able to feel how fast they spin up when you stand on the pedals. The rim profile is a little wider, giving extra tire volume for a better ride. The hubs run on high-quality Enduro bearings to ensure a long life, no matter where you ride. And it's all held together with stainless steel double-butted spokes, because not all roads are smooth and a wheel isn't useful if it isn't tough. Of course, that's not to say that these tanks weigh in like one - at just under 1,400g they're also one of the lightest options for your money. Period.

So why opt for hand built wheels? They're made by someone who understands how and why a good wheel works without having to make compromises for manufacturing speed. All our wheels are built individually, with great care taken to balance both the true of the wheel as well as the tension of the spokes. What it works out to is a stiffer, lighter wheel that stays true longer. Ride a set and you'll never buy something stock again.
