Another smart Nextie and XLR8 build - light and stiff!

Aero Carbon Classic and Retro Gravel Nextie Racing Sapim Tubeless XLR8 Hubs

Here's another custom Nextie carbon road wheelset for a customer who wishes to remain anonymous!

Front hub pictured.But we're happy to describe the outcome. The new Nextie Premium range of road rims improves on their already excellent value offerings. Toray T700 and T800 carbon is used, and higher Tg resins for the entire rim construction (not just the braking surface like many others).

Rear hub shown.There is a more complicated layup process for even more stiffness and strength, and the braking surface is built to event tighter tolerances. Road tubeless ready as well.

Plus, the warranty period is now extended to 3 years. These are the new base rim option for XLR8 customers after an economy carbon wheelset. Most customers like them without decals for subtle look, but there are many available decal options from the factory.

This set of hoops was built using the Nextie NXT35CX and NXT45CX rims, and Sapim Race spokes front and rear. Sapim Polyax brass nipples ensure reliability.

With the choice of XLR8 MD front and rear superlight hubs, these wheels will be stiff and light, and reliable for many, many years to come.
