Amazing and extremely noticeable difference in weight and handling - hops are easier, traction is better, the tires follow the terrain much more precisely! Improved suspension performance is guaranteed! Savvy tuners will tell you that losing 1lb of unsprung weight is equal to 3lbs of sprung weight - so here's 15 lbs worth of handling improvement - you will notice it guaranteed!
Rims and Hubs are available in a variety of colors! - refer to the pics for ideas. Some color combos are not always available, so please put in the notes your first and second choice of colors when ordering and we will do our best to accommodate you. Special color combos might also take longer to arrive, FYI.
Typically the front wheels will fit other brands of bikes - as long as the forks are the same brand (Tech to Tech, Paioli to Paioli etc). The rears are fairly interchangeable with spacers except the Beta's are different. So there is the opportunity to keep a set a wheels and move them from bike to bike in the future....
Each wheel hub starts off as a billet chunk of 2024 Aluminum milled into a special DDM hollow design with high precision bearings and axle spacer installed. The spokes are custom made of 6AL4V Titanium and then laced and trued to a specially modified Morad rim.
Provided with the wheels is our Hyperlite front wheel kit which allows up to a total weight savings of 5lbs with this entire kit.
Please Note: Total weight savings does vary somewhat from brand to brand and year to year. Mainly most newer bikes from 2010 or so and onward will see close to a 5lb weight savings, while older models with thinner spokes may not realize such a dramatic weight difference.
We have been testing these wheels for many seasons now and can attest they hold up to all the abuse that our rugged Vermont national caliber terrain can dish out!
