A wheelset specifically designed for E-bikes to be burly but still retain all of the benefits of the Onyx silent engagement, the sprag clutch dramatically reduces pickup and delays in drive caused buy the hub and motor.
Built with the demands of a modern Ebike in mind.
We have a reduced number of options due to the nature of the wheel, We only offer you the hardest of options ready for abuse
At the heart of this wheelset is the completely silent U.S. manufactured Onyx Racing hubset.
Onyx racing hubs liberate your bike wheels and transform your ride.
Onyx hubs transfer power from your pedals to your rear bike wheel instantly for faster acceleration and more control.
Hybrid ceramic bearings reduce front and rear wheel rolling resistance to the point of disbelief.
The patented sprag clutch design removes the play and clickety??"clack of pawls against teeth in the rear hub to silence your coasting.
Ceramic bearings with adjustable preload and a drag-free sprag clutch make it the fastest rolling hub on the market.
Increase your control on technical climbs with sprags that ramp up with torque to smoothly apply driving force, and instant engagement with absolutely zero lag.
Available in a whole raft of colour options.
Spoke and nipple combinations available:
Sapim Race - 2/1.8/2 - Race spokes are double butted and are used for the strongest and stiffest builds.
Sapim CX-Ray - 2/2.3/0.9/2 - The lightest and most resilient mountain bike spokes available.
Sapim strong - 2.3/2/2 - The strongest spoke on the market built to be tough not necessarily the lightest.
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
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 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.
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 necessary on a 27.5
