TECH

As one of our widest road rims designs, the WR65 is the answer for the gravel rider trying to squeeze out every aerodynamic advantage from their setup.

Designed with racing in mind, the WR65 features a deep New Gen Aero Shape that decreases lateral resistance. With a 65mm deep and stiff profile, the WR65 is designed for experienced bike handlers looking for an aero edge or larger riders.

KM: Specialized Allez Sprint Disc with WR65 disc wheelset on Hope RS4 hubs. UD gloss finish with black decals. Black Sapim cx-rays (32 rear, 28 front) with black brass nipples. Rims are without holes as I'm running tubeless tyres. The Schwalbe Pro One TLEs were obscenely easy to fit onto the rims (by hand, took about ten seconds each) and inflated easily. With the 105% rule adhered to, the wheels are fast yet almost invisible to crosswinds.

hi, am interested in the Falcon WR65 dics wheelset. i would like the DT Swiss 350 hubs. Front need: 12X 100mm thru axle. But the Rear i need : Quick release 135mm. if I order the rear in this configuration, can I later convert this DT Swiss 350 hub to 12 X142 thru axle??


LightBicycle 2020/12/02

Hi Rick, We ran out of DT 350 hubs, will you consider Bitex hubs or other hubs instead? It's easier to get, and has a 135mm rear hub available. Thanks, Lightbicycle
