CCACHE HED Belgium+ Hand-Built Wheelset
Nothing beats a hand-built wheelset, assembled in-house and tuned by a qualified bike mechanic/wheel-builder. Each wheel is triple-tensioned, tested and checked before shipping.
Our pre-configured training wheels are built on the HED Belgium Plus platform, chosen for its tubeless compatibility and 21mm internal width, adding tyre volume, smoothness, and rolling speed.
Using a combination of different spokes we can tune our wheelset to be both lightweight and robust. We start with trusty DT Swiss "Competition" cold-forged double butted spokes on the rear drive-side for extra strength and durability. For the front wheel and rear NDS, we use DT Swiss "Competition Race" spokes. These lightweight spokes save over 1g per spoke (vs the original) with near equal stiffness and durability. We lace these up Radial on the front and 2x Cross on the rear.
Our wheelsets are built with DT Swiss brass nipples - they're stronger and more resistant to corrosion than alloy nipples. Worth the very minor weight penalty (less than 30 grams).
The hub choice is up to you - Chris King R45 with its iconic buzz-sound, White Industries T11 featuring the super-durable titanium freehub, or the ubiquitous DT Swiss 240s Classic. The Tune Mig70/Mag170 set weighs less than 250 grams, ideal for those weight weenie builds. For the budget conscious, we also offer the well-regarded DT Swiss 350 hubs.
