Wheelworks wheels

4 May 2017

We recently started offering Wheelworks wheels as options on our custom build kits. Check out the options here...

DIAL Hubs

Not simply content with offering industry-leading hubs from DT Swiss, Hope, Chris King and White Industries we have developed own top quality hubs.

 Wheelworks new DIAL hubs are named after their 72 engagement-point freehub body which sounds like the precision dial on a bank vault. Angled flanges, a feature found on only the highest quality hubs, ensures better spoke durability. New Zealand trail conditions are tough on bearings so we have spec’d top of the line stainless steel bearings hidden behind low-friction seals to ensure long running performance. Internally machined axles keep the weight down to a svelte 135 grams front and 250 grams rear (about the same as the light weight DT Swiss 240s)

FLITE Wide Carbon Trail

The Carbon Trail wheelset is the perfect all-arounder: Light enough for the climb up, stiff enough for the descent down, and wide enough to provide amazing traction in all circumstances. To improve your riding experience we've designed tubeless rims wide enough to suit modern mountain bikes and modern tyres, but not so wide as to square-off tyres and create extra rolling resistance. We've pushed the industries best carbon rim producers to create rims of exceptional durability so we can back them with our lifetime warranty.

FLITE Wide Alloy Enduro

RRP $1800

Intended Use

There is a reason why many of the world’s best EWS racers are still using aluminium wheels regardless of what their sponsors would love to see them riding: When you whack the rim on a hidden root, crash on a blind section of trail, or case a landing a good aluminium rim will dent but still be usable, allowing the rest of your race to go on unimpeded.

This wheelset is designed for Enduro racing and full-noise aggressive riding and is best-matched to an SB6, SB5.5, or hard-hitting rider on an SB5. 

FLITE Wide Alloy Trail RRP $1800

Intended Use

This wheelset is designed to partner with an SB4.5, SB5 / SB5 Beti, or SB5.5 frame for aggressive trail riding on mixed terrain.
