AB has been riding our wheels for a while and needed a new pair to suit her new frame. She has moved to Cannondale and their new Ai (Asymmetric Integration) frameset. The Cannondale concept requires specific rear wheel dish to sit properly in the rear triangle of the frame, but all in an effort to ensure greater lateral wheel stiffness and better wheel reliability. 

Cyclinic, the local Project 321 distributor contacted us with this project and we agreed the Zelvy RBL 29er rims would be perfect for this build. They are super duper light, and still quite stiff under a tough rider.

Project 321 boost hubs are not the lightest solution, but they are the highest tech, and as reliable as anything else on the market, if not more. They have 216 point of engagement, and a super reliable magnetic pawl system that is light years ahead of the competition.

Of course, Sapim spokes were used. D-Light spokes are light and reliable on the front, and Sapim Race keep rear wheel stiffness at a premium.
