Are you after a light hill climbing wheel? Or a affordable shallow carbon wheelset that isn’t affected by cross winds? Then our “Climbing Up” build if ideal for you.

With super light Ridea ht1 hubs and a 38mm deep carbon BLB rim. These wheels are built to take on the hills. With this shallow carbon rim depth this is a light wheelset. But you still get the aerodynamic benefits. Unlock you potential

Hub

For this build we have gone with Ridea HR1’s. With a combined weight of 300G for the set. these are super light! This gives you a very responsive wheelset. Couple that is high quality bearings and you can see why we have chosen them for this build.

When you accelerate you can feel these hubs pick up instantly. At speed is where these hubs come alive. Not only are they light but using a wide hub shell keeps the spokes short resulting in a stiff but comfortable wheelset

We have gone with 20 spokes on the front and 24 rear ion this build. This keeps your front wheel feeling lively and the mass low. With the rear we have a higher spoke count to let you put all the power down. With a higher spoke count, we also can improve the comfort

Rim

We have gone with BLB’s Notorious 38mm deep carbon rim. With this rim you are getting a strong and reliable rim at an affordable cost. we have chosen a 38mm deep rim for this build as it reduces the weight. Also, in cross winds you don’t feel like you are going to get blowen off the road. Carbon rims have come a long way in this regard, but some still feel unstable. These rims feel secure in any wind.

This are for carbon rim brake pads only and for 25c tyres max.

Spokes

We use either Sapim race or cx-ray spokes for this build. Both these spokes are fantastic for their strength and weight. We use j bend spokes in this build to better suit the physics of rim brakes. The cx-ray let you get the most out of the aero gains that these wheels can give you.
