Ted was keen for some new hoops and approached us for advice on wheels to replace the alloy Roval 29er wheels on his 2017 Specialized Enduro. He was specifically after a wider rim and had a weight target in mind.
He rides technical and rocky trails, and had smashed up his Rovals, so reliability was paramount.
Following some discussions, we suggested a Nextie Carbon rim build with silver Sapim Race spokes and brass nipples. The silver spokes always look classy and help to recover some of the additional cost of going carbon - not that the additional cost over premium alloy is much these days!
Ted selected the 28mm internal width Nextie rims, with custom red outlined logos to match his bike.
Hope Pro4 hubs are a low cost but reliable option, for which parts are always easy to source. A solid choice.
