UK Rim Brake Training
Our "UK Rim Brake Training" wheels are perfect for you to get out no matter what. Built to put in the miles then race on the weekend.
A combination of Ridea hubs with DT Swiss rr511 rims give you the best in wieght and strenght without sacrificing earodynamics. Laced together with either sapim race or cx-ray. You don’t have to go to disc to get out in any weather. These wheels prove that. Ready to race or rack up the miles.
For this build we have gone with Ridea HR1’s as they are a fantastic option for all weather riding and low resistance bearings. Ridea are a lesser-known brand, but they can fight with the best. With plenty of engagement you feel the pickup instantly of the lights. With a mass of 300g for the set you can’t get much lighter! Still happy in the rain (or as happy as you can be) they offer you some of the best weight and strength for rim brakes.
Dt Swiss rr511 are no brainer for this build as they have great braking performance and still offer plenty more. With a 32mm depth they give you a great balance of aero and weight in an alloy rim. tubeless ready for a puncture free experience.
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.
