Wheelset 27.5 "| 650B Hope hubs | NoTubes ZTR rims MK3 | Sapim CX-Ray | XC MA With the MK3 Notubes brings a further development of their legendary Crest rim on the market. Despite a by 2 millimeters enlarged inner width Americans were able to save 20 grams of weight to the rim and at the same time increase the stiffness. Made possible by the inspired by the Valor carbon rims new rim design. With the increased size of 23 mm inner width of the tire increases in volume and is located at low air pressure stable on the rim. After Notubes Wide Right system the width of Crest MK3 has been optimized for 2.0 inch to 25.2 inch tires. For previous version remained the same over the years is the refined Bead Socket Technology and the superior characteristics Tubeless. An extra light rim, the tire can develop fully and the tire volume increases compared to a conventional rim. This leads to a lower rolling resistance and better damping characteristics.
intended use of the wheelset: Cross Country / Marathon
With the Pro 4 Hope heralds the latest evolution of its hub. The already well-known for their quality workmanship and indestructibility hub was further to stiffness and durability, improved ways.
HOPE hub front Pro 4
It has a larger flange diameter than its predecessor and still allows thus stiffer wheels. Known features like the multiple colors available, the sealed stainless steel bearings and interchangeable end caps have been retained. Also the weight has remained.
Using optional end caps the hub at any time on quick release, quick-release axle 9mm, 12mm thru-axle, quick release axle 15, 20mm thru-axle can be retrofitted.
HOPE hub front Pro 4 | Boost 15x110 mm
The Boost version has a wider body than the hub QR15 variant. For her, the flanges are moved to each 5mm outward, optimizing the angle of the spoke to the rim, thus enabling significantly stiffer wheels, resulting in a significant performance gain especially in 29 "wheels. In addition, the clamping surface on the fork is larger and allows enormously stiff connection between the fork and wheel.
Note: only available in 32 holes!
HOPE hub rear Pro 4
It has a larger flange diameter than its predecessor and still allows thus stiffer wheels. The freewheel gear now has 44 teeth, or 10% more locking points than the previous model. This results in a free travel of just 8.2 ° when accelerating.
Even the freewheel body has been completely redesigned and now comes with two, rather than three, bearings made. In order to ensure the durability of these larger dimensions.
Known features like the multiple colors available, the sealed stainless steel bearings and interchangeable freewheels / end caps have been retained.
Using optional end caps the hub at any time on quick release, 10mm thru bolt, 10mm are screwed, 135 x 12mm, 142 x 12mm convertible.
HOPE hub rear Pro 4 | Boost 12x148 mm thru axle
The Boost version has a wider hub body than 135/142 mm variant. For her, the flanges are moved by 3 mm to the outside, which optimizes the angle of the spoke to the rim, thus enabling significantly stiffer wheels, resulting in a significant performance gain especially in 29 "wheels.
Note: only available in 32 holes!
The rims of Notubes are probably the most commonly installed when a spitzenklassiger wheelset is requested with lightweight aluminum rim. The rim profile is optimized such that this wheel takes out a proper stiffness from very little material. In addition, the rim Tubeless ready! This means that normal tires can be driven without tube. For this, the rim must only me provided Tubelesstape and the tires are mounted with some sealing milk. By omitting the tube the friction between tire and inner tube and the flexing of the tube is completely eliminated. As a result, the rolling resistance is reduced while simultaneously increasing comfort and grip!
NoTubes ZTR Crest MK3
intended use: Cross Country, Marathon
recommended weight limit incl Clothing: 75 Kg. (28/28 Hole) 85 Kg (32/32 Hole)
NoTubes Arch MK3 The ZTR Arch MK3 was developed with the input of the Enduro World Series teams. Despite an increase by 5 millimeters tremendous inner width compared to Arch EX, the Americans were even able to reduce the weight of the MK3 minimal and at the same time increase the stiffness. By enlarged to 26 millimeters inside width of the tire increases in volume and is located at low air pressure stable on the rim. After Notubes Wide Right system the width of the Arch has been optimized for MK3 2:25 inch to 2.5 inch tires. Compared to the ZTR Crest Arch EX heavier drivers provides more stiffness and reserves in borderline situations.
intended use: Cross Country Marathon
recommended weight limit including clothing. 95 Kg (32/32 Hole)
Sapim CX-Ray spokes are called spokes. The middle part is butted during production to 1.5 mm in diameter and forged flat in the last step. These processes ensure a strengthening of the structure and bring forth extremely durable spokes.
Wheel building at R2-Bike
Our wheels are assembled by our farmers impeller entirely by hand. While the entire structure is considered important that not only the concentricity true, but also that the spoke tension is as uniform as possible. The special care allows us to give a lifetime guarantee against spoke breakage as long as this was not caused by force!
Furthermore, you get to our impellers following services:
- A universal wheel bag for all standard sizes.
- An extra spoke nipples + to be able to repair the wheel shortly in all required spoke lengths even after accidents.
- A free initial inspection of the impeller, with the resulting work is completely free! There are only shipping.
- A Crash Replacement promise. If you have a wheel damage due to force majeure, we build your wheel on once again. We provide 100% discount on all labor costs and only charge the material!
