Wheelset 29" XC | Hope MTB 6-hole hubs | Duke aluminum rims
intended use : Cross Country XC
With this wheel set, even racers can really let it rip. The indestructible Hope hubs and the excellently processed Duke rims also forgive a driving mistake. The balanced selection of components guarantees you high reliability and a long service life.
The Pro 5 hubs from the English cult manufacturer from Barnoldswick rotate in the center of the wheelset. The experience of 30 years of designing and manufacturing high-quality drive elements flowed into their development with the aim of improving proven technology in order to meet the demands of current and future bicycle technology.
The design of the rear wheel hub differs significantly from the previous model. Their enlarged body generates more rigidity without increasing the weight. This is particularly noticeable in a much more direct driving behavior. At the same time, the diameter of the spoke flange increased. This simplifies the construction of very stable wheels.
The highlight of the rear wheel hub is the new 6-pawl freewheel system in offset design. This is characterized by the fact that three of the six pawls are always engaged when driving in order to distribute the load evenly. In addition, the freewheel toothing has been increased from 44 (Pro 4) to 54 teeth, resulting in a total of 108 locking points and a low idle travel of just 3.33°. In addition, some material has been removed from the springs of the pawls, which slightly reduces the spring force and reduces their resistance. With the Pro 5, Hope creates the right balance between smooth running and durability.
Typical for Hope is the perfect workmanship. The hub can withstand negative external influences for a long time, which is also thanks to the high-quality anodizing and the very well sealed stainless steel industrial bearings. Should the ravages of time gnaw at it at some point, it can be disassembled and serviced without much effort. In addition, conversion to a different hub standard is possible without any problems.
The rims from Duke from France stand for low weight and excellent workmanship. The hookless construction is ideal for using tubeless systems. The reinforced bead means that any punctures can be better tolerated without causing damage. The fairly flat and wide rims reliably support the tire in every situation.
The asymmetrical shape enables more even spoke tension, which further increases the rigidity of the entire wheel.
Impeller construction at R2-Bike
Our wheels are assembled entirely by hand by our wheel builders. During the entire construction, it is important that not only the concentricity is right, but also that the spoke tension is as even as possible. This special care allows us to give a lifetime guarantee against broken spokes, as long as this is not caused by violence.
Furthermore, the following services are already included:
You get a universal wheel bag for all common sizes.
You get a replacement spoke with nipples in all required spoke lengths, so that you can repair the wheel at short notice after an accident.
You get a free initial inspection of the impeller, with the resulting work being completely free. Only shipping costs are charged.
You get a crash replacement promise: If your wheel is damaged due to force majeure, we will rebuild it once. We grant a 100% discount on all labor costs and only charge for the material.
