Do you need a versatile road and gravel wheelset that you can be confident in? Our “Always Outside” build is a wheelset that is affordable and durable. this wheelset is for people who are riding a lot and need an affordable wheelset that you can keep running.

With Shimano Tiagra hubs and Ryde’s DP16 rim, you have an incredibly durable wheelset. hubs that spin smoothly and with legendary Shimano reliability. The DP16 rims are a jack of all trades able to take wide tyres for maximum comfort.

Hub

Shimano is the biggest manufacturer of bike parts in the world and one of the longest-running. It's safe to say that at this price point nothing comes close. They still use loose ball bearings that the industry is moving away from but that is no bad thing in this build. When you ride day in and out your bike will see every type of weather. You may even leave it outside! With even the best-sealed cartridge hubs eventual you will have to replace the bearings. That does require specific tools and if done wrong destroys the hub. Loose ball bearings are very easy to service. They can be done at home without special tools.

Tiagra has better seals than Shimano’s cheaper options and the biggest difference as you spend more is the weight. Yes, 105 is lighter (if you want a wheelset with this let us know) but the additional cost is hard to justify in this build. For 10 speed cassette only.

We have gone for a 32-hole front and 32-rear for this build. This lets you ride with confidence that you are not going to brake wheels even if you have panniers on the bike. Higher spoke count front wheels also track straighter than some with lower spoke count.

Rim

Ryde is known for their durable rims. A lot of cargo bikes and e-bikes use their rims. With this record, we have chosen them for this build. The point is that no matter what you are doing with your bike you can be sure that these rims can handle it.

You can run up to 32c tyres on these rims. This lets you run wide tyres and improve your comfort or more puncture-proof tyres. The brake tacks are also well machined. This lets you stop a lot better in the wet.  

Spokes

Either Sapim race or cx-ray spokes.

Sapim race are a light double butted spoke that add both comfort and strength

Cx-ray spokes are one of the most aerodynamic spokes on the market and as light as a titanium spoke.

Laced radially on the front and 2x on the rear. Your choice of nipple colour!
