If you only ride a set constant speed, then wheel weight isn't much concern. However, in the real world, there is always a change in pace - terrain, wind, traffic or the random urge to just "go".

Reducing rotating weight greatly increases the responsiveness of your bike and are just all around more fun to ride - when you press on the pedal, the bike "jumps" forward with an eager liveliness that is addicting.

This wheelset features double wall, aero profile 7301 A Rim. With a combined weight of 1475g these hand built wheels have final tensioning, lateral and vertical truing and pre-stressing, done here at Wabi Cycles in Colorado. Wheels include rim strips, and a lock ring for a fixed cog. The rear hub is a flip-flop design, fixed threading on both sides allows the use of fixed or freewheel on either or both sides of the hub.

  • Superlight at 1475g/set (704g front, 771g rear)
  • Silky smooth sealed bearing hubs
  • Bolt on design is lighter than nuts and doesn't damage dropouts
  • True 410g rims- superlight and compliant for a great ride

Sub 15 Superlight Wheelset

I have had these wheels on my new All City Big Block for just over a week and they are great. So so light, took on 32mm tires like a boss, and doing well on gravel, road, and light trail. They make an already fun bike to ride a dream.

Very good wheels, but not perfect

I bought these wheels as replacements for the original wheels, which only needed some minor truing twice over several years, on my Wabi Special. My decision was based on the reviews, specs, pric

Feels like I have a new bike

These wheels changed the way my bike feels. They accelerate very quickly and make my bike more fun to ride. They also help a ton in hills. Can’t think of any way they could be better.

Amazing wheels, Fantastic service

No doubt, some of the best wheels to be had! This is my second time buying the the "Sub-15" set because I liked the first set so much, and I would choose no other for my new bike. I also ordered some components including a track cog with lock ring which they installed on my new wheelset for me ... Thanks guys : ) Great service!

Well worth your money!

I’ve been waiting to write my review on these sub 15 wheels for quite some time...I bought these wheels in October of 2015 for my kilo tt and have put well over 5000 commuter/training miles on them in NYC. These wheels are so light when I tried my friends $2000 zipp carbon set on his specialized langster, I didn’t like how heavy they felt. The front wheel has stayed true since the day I got it, I’m pretty nimble and avoid most potholes when riding. The rear has been re-trued twice since ownership, it takes a bit more of a beating with the way I ride but overall still hold up for my 15 mile brakeless commute. The rear now does have a slight 3-4mm wobble from side to side by eye when looking down the bike, but I feel no wobbling while riding. Guess I will be buying a rear wheel soon. Only $210? Okay take my money!
