Everyone has heard of Shimano. Their Deore parts are legendary and for good reason. They are very dependable. You can jump on them or go through a swamp, and they don’t care. With some of the heaviest duty seals that Shimano does. Your bearings will remain smooth no matter the weather.
We have taken it a step beyond the standard Deore to the Deore XT as this saves a significant amount of weight. This lets you make changes to your speed faster and improves responsiveness. Also, the quality of the bearings improve so they also spin for longer letting you carry more momentum
We have gone with 32 spokes front and rear in this build. With the wider tyres that these wheels can take prevents the front wheel from feeling squeamish when you push into a corner. Also, 32 spokes on the rear means you can plough through the chatter without worrying about spokes braking
