We started took the long road with our 2.0 wheels and we are very proud of the results.
We’ve tested and developed our 1.0 rims since early 2014. Similar to our bikes, our wheels have been tested everywhere from Dirty Kanza (with multiple podiums and a dozens of finishes), Utah’s White Rim Trail, the cobbles of Paris Roubaix and Flanders, cyclocross, road, and MTB races, Crusher in the Tushar, and beyond.
After we’d tested 1.0 to our satisfaction we collected our thoughts and ideas for improvement, made our revisions, and cut entirely new molds for 2.0.
As with our Traildonkey frameset we debossed our name into the surface of the rim to create a unique and unmistakable rim belonging only to us.
Our 700c 2.0 rim provides a wide, stable 21.5 mm internal rim width designed to pair well with larger volume road and adventure tires found on modern bikes. Wide tires (25mm through 50mm tested and recommended) require a wider platform for stable performance across varying tire pressures. With larger (40mm+) tires we run our rims tubeless into the low 20psi range and with 25mm tires we run them down into the 70psi range when we want a smooth and comfortable ride. Minimum tire weights vary by rider.
We designed our 2.0 rims with a 30mm depth with an eye towards crosswind performance. The 30mm profile is well adapted for impact resistance against and conditions seen in gravel and trail riding. A 30mm rim is inherently lighter than a deep dish profile rim. keeping the rotational mass low while keeping the strength high results in a rim that spins up quickly and feels fast in all conditions.
Our rims are designed to cover the spectrum from road riding to gravel riding to cyclocross racing to fully off road trail riding and everything in between. Our wheels were tested by not one but two different 3rd party testers to exceedingly high impact and strength standards for impact resistance and stiffness.
Our wheel builds are available standard in 28h spoke counts but are also available as custom builds in 24 or 32 hole builds.
We teamed up with Bitex to customize their hubs and pair them with our rims. We tested a broad range of hubs over the course of 24 months and found Bitex to provide incredible performance, and weight, and durability in a single package.
Full custom builds are available with hubs from; Chris King, White Industries, DT Swiss, Industry 9, Paul Components, Onyx, and Phil Wood. Front dynamo hubs by Shutter Precision and Schmidt Son. Many combinations of hubs, spokes, and nipples are available including color matched rim decals. Every custom wheel set is carefully designed for each customer’s particular needs.

Custom wheel lead times are 1-3 weeks depending on hub / spoke availability.
