The factory supplied wheels on the Slate were a bit disappointing, the rims being quite heavy and the spokes a basic single-gauge variety.
As the hubs supplied are a reasonable quality, it makes sense to reuse them.
The Forza disc rim is available in 650b to maintain the same set of tyre choice, or 700c to allow use of 700×25 or 28c tyres with this frameset.
Using these better quality rims and a double-butted spoke, the wheel weight and ride quality are noticeably improved, which translates into making the bike even more fun to ride!
Please call or email to discuss your exact requirements.
It’s also possible to provide full new wheelsets for the lefty/thru-axle configuration.
