Evo Custom CrankBorthers Synthesis Alloy Enduro Rim on Hope Pro4

Evo Custom CrankBorthers Synthesis Alloy Enduro Rim on Hope Pro4

Crankbrothers synthesis wheels take a new approach to wheel systems, focusing on a compliant front wheel with a stif rear wheel to achieve optimum ride characteristics for each.  The compliant front wheel improves handling and control in the turns, while a stif rear wheel enhances stability and trackinh at speed.  In the alloy range, these differing characteristics are achieved by variations chosen in spoke tension, spoke weight, spoke count, rim width and rim weight.

Spoke and nipple combinations available:

Sapim Race - 2/1.8/2 - Race spokes are double butted and are used for the strongest and stiffest wheel builds. Handles abrasion from trail debris. Weight (64 pcs x 260 mm) 363 g

Sapim D-Light - 2/1.65/2 - Light, strong, economical. The D-Lights are double butted and are the best choice for most riders. Does not stretch and twist poorly like 2/1.5/2mm spokes. More elastic and lighter than Race spokes. Weight: (64 pcs x 260 mm) 307 g

Sapim CX-Ray - 2/2.3/0.9/2 - The lightest and most resilient mountain bike spokes available. CX Rays are bladed so they have aerodynamic properties and have the best results in fatigue testing of any spoke. Strong enough for competitive use. Weight: (64 pcs x 260 mm) 272 g

Nipples:

2.0mm Sapim brass - great durability and strength - brass colour only 2.0mm Sapim/DT Swiss Silver Alloy nipple - for ultimate in low weight. Not as good long term durability or strength compared to brass and prone to corrosion in long-term so consider replacing every 2/3 seasons. 2.0mm Black DT Swiss Brass - Black coated brass nipples - top performance and looks - bear in mind brass doesn't take coatings well so can look a little worn after building due to surface contact with spoke keys. 2.0mm DT Swiss Squorx Prolock - brass for ultimate strength and durability - extended spoke head with spline fitting on inside of rim for increased strength and ease of truing with a special tool. Bear in mind brass doesn't take coatings well so can look a little worn after building due to surface contact with spoke keys.

Sapim Double Square Alloy - Our wheelbuildes favourite - a top quality alloy nipple with great durability and increased length of head for strength and ease of truing. Removal of rounded or broken nipples is easier too using internal spoke head.

27.5" wheels are built 3X lacing pattern with 32 hole, 29ers are Built 2X, due to the 2X lacing pattern increases stiffness in the wheel that is needed on a 29er and not so pessary on a 27.5. Unless the rim or hub manufacturer specifies other wise  

If you want a different pattern please let us know in the comments section at checkout.
