With a combined weight of 1725g these hand built wheels have final tensioning, lateral and vertical truing and pre-stressing done here at Wabi Cycles in Colorado.

- Lightweight - 1725g/set (844g front, 881g rear)
- Silky smooth sealed bearing hubs
- Bolt on design with a hollow axle is lighter than a solid threaded axle and doesn't damage dropouts. This also makes the wheels quick release compatible.
- True 410g rims- superlight and compliant for a great ride
- 14/15 double butted stainless spokes 32 hole
- Hand finished truing and pre-stressing
- Threading on both sides allows flip flop options
- 100mm front, 120mm rear
- 12.6mm ID rim width
IMPORTANT: These wheels require rear dropouts that are at least 5mm thick. If they are less than 5mm (or just at 5mm), you'll need a chain tensioner to ensure the proper clamp. See our installation page for more info.

The wheels ride amazing. Came out of the box true, and still are after a month of daily cycling (including all the crazy potholes in NYC). The m5 axle bolt is very convenient, because I get to leave the 15mm wrench at home. If you see these in stock, get them. They're worth every dollar.
These wheels are a total bargain. Nice and light, thin and aero. Definitely happy with my purchase.
This wheelset is exactly what I was looking for. As soon as I watched a Zach Gallardo video speaking about them, I was sold. I quickly ordered them and am glad I did as they were no longer available for purchase once I completed my order. Both are currently on my ****** bike, but I am building one this summer, and these are going on that build.
Usually light weight and low deep wheels are weaker than heavy and deep wheels, but this 22mm deep wheels are way stronger than my previous 30mm deep 2500g wheel set! I bought the wheel set about a month ago and did more than 1000km (including two 100km ride) and I am completely happy with it's performance. Wheels are smooth, strong and amazingly light weight. I ordered with continental gator skin tire package, and they sent me the wheel set completely ready (including tube, rim tape), I just had to pump it up and ready to go! I appreciate wabi's high quality products at a reasonable price. My only complain is rim width. For today's standard, 12.6mm inner width is very small. I will suggest wabi to think about making this wheel set at least 18mm wide.
The wheels are durable and feel lighter than most wheels at this price while also being hand tensioned to tight levels of quality control. If you don’t want to spend more on the Sub-15’s or different fixed gear wheel sets, I’d highly recommend these.
