Here our best selling Pave28 wide performance rims are built with quality Sapim CX-Ray spokes onto our European made Zeal hub with high engagement hubs.

Our best selling Pave28 range of rims is designed to be wider to allow a rounder profile tyre for speed, comfort and aerodynamics. The benefit of a wider rim is that the tyre bead hooks are spread further apart, simultaneously rounding out the tyre's profile and increasing the tyre's internal air volume. This allows the use of lower tyre pressures, increasing rider comfort while decreasing rolling resistance.

    Purchased 4 sets of wheel between 4 clubs mates and used the new year 50% discount. Amazingly well priced wheels which use great components, but all four sets have had faults. Set 1.

Low spoke tension

The bearings run really well, and the freehub engages quickly - It is a little noisy, but not overly so (certainly quieter than a friend's Hope Hoops!) Having the wider rim and being able to drop a few psi from the tyres has made a huge improvement in comfort. The wheel
