Daniel’s Banshee Rune is a 6 inch travel All-Mountain monster, and is intended for the rough stuff. Daniel is no lightweight either, so speccing the right carbon hoops for him required a bit of consideration.
He wanted these wheels to be a little bling, so a pair of Hope Evo hubs were selected – they are super reliable, well made, and the pricing is good.
Zelvy 650b carbon rims make perfect sense – they are super strong, super light, and backed by a local Australian warranty that is as good as any! Some of Australia’s toughest downhill and enduro competitors have been hammering Zelvy rims for some time now, so we know they are up to the task.
A no-nonsense build like this requires no-nonsense spokes. Of course that means Sapim Race double butted spokes, and brass nipples to ensure ongoing reliability.
