Wabi Lightweight Single Speed Wheelset, 700C
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.
NOTE: We are not selling these wheelsets as a component given we need to conserve inventory for our builds. We'll have more inventory for individual sale in January at this time.

These Wheels are ****** light and the hubs a buttery smooth.
Wow! These wheels are light! I immediately saw a substantial improvement in my take off speed and especially climbing. Much easier to turn these wheels over than my old clunky aero rims at any ratio. The hubs truly are buttery smooth, and it's great to have maintenance free sealed bearings. To top it off, this wheelset looks right at home on my vintage Italvega conversion. Thanks, Wabi!
I've been riding these wheels in NYC through potholes & on cobbles on my #1 most-used commuter bike in all weather including nasty salty winter slush. I've hauled heavy loads of groceries on my rear rack. I've never had to do any maintenance whatsoever on them. They spin up super-fast in stop-and-go traffic. Can't really ask for anything more. The only thing I'm annoyed by is that I've never been able to find a set of security bolts/axles compatible with them, but that's not their fault, just something to be aware of.
I had been searching around for an upgraded wheelset and came across the Wabi's. I was contemplating the sub15 vs the standard but went with the standard due to where I drive (city streets). So far I have put about 200 miles on the wheels and have had no issues with them. While looking around at other wheelsets I just couldn't find anything that seemed to be as sturdy and as light without spending up or losing spoke count. I was originally grabbing these to have as a summer set and then use the factory wheels in the winter but I may just end up using these year round and grabbing another set when I can. Only issue I had was using a stripped allen key to install but that was easily fixed by grabbing a new set of bolts and new tools. No fault to the wheels or bolts that is on me.
Smooth as butter. Look nice, ride nice awesome wheels
