Reducing rotational wheel weight is one of the easiest ways to increase the responsiveness and acceleration of a bike and the Wabi Lightweight Single Speed Wheelset may also make it one of the most economical. At 1725g our Wabi Lightweight Wheelset may be the lightest, most durable wheels available for the price.

Need tires? Give us a call to add stock or custom order tires/tubes to your new wheelset.
IMPORTANT NOTE: For frames with narrow thickness dropouts (less than 6mm), there is a chance that the wheel nut and axle will bottom out and not provide a good clamp. This is especially true with used frames where the paint and steel have been previously clamped (and thus thinner). In those cases, you would need to use a dropout protector, chain tensioner or washer to provide enough thickness at the dropout for a clamp.
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.
Sooooo happy with these super lightweight wheels! My bike flys up hills and glides like butter on the flats. So much bang for your buck. Tough as nails for these NYC streets too. Thanks Wabi for making high quality, light wheels for an excellent price!
Super happy with these rims. They’re the first step toward building a whole Wabi bike... but they’re amazing on my existing frame in the meantime. The title says it all: So light! So beautiful!
These Wheels are ****** light and the hubs a buttery smooth.
