Velocity A23 Rim
Sapim Laser Spokes – 28
Powertap Pro+ – Shimano/SRAM 8/9/10 Freehub
$1200, post paid in the US.
Great build for training and race day. The A23 rims give tires a great profile for more stable cornering. Ideal for road or cyclocross.
The Pro+ is really the sweetspot in the Powertap line, only 50g heavier than the SL+ but hundreds of dollars less expensive. ANT+ compatible.
New front wheel! C4 FH-78/Sapim Laser/Velocity A23 606g $220.
Rim – Velocity A23 – We’ve been really excited by the wide rims Velocity has been cranking out lately. The A23 really seems to give 23 and 25 wide tires a nice profile. 426g. $80.
Hub – C-4 FH-78 – C4 is a little known American based company that makes great hubs for absolutely amazing prices. 78 gram front hub uses Phil Wood bearings and includes a superlight Ti skewer. At $110 these are really impressive.
Spokes – Sapim Laser – Sapim makes the best spokes in the world.
We built this up as a light front wheel to go with Powertap rear. A wheelset using the C-4 RH-215 rear hub would run $500 and clock in right around 1400g.
