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
  • 14/17 double butted stainless spokes (20 radial spokes front, 24 2-cross pattern rear)
  • Aluminum spoke nipples 
  • Hand finished truing and pre-stressing
  • Threading on both sides allows flip flop options

Great wheels

Love my Sub-15’s. I saved a little over 4 pounds(!) from my janky 6KU wheelset, and immediately noticed the difference. Glad I spent the money.

Great experience

I ordered the wrong rear wheel...Victor was really helpful and I was able to exchange easily. Have ridden a classic since 2013.

Love my wheels

Bought the sub 15s for a Wabi that I found on Craigslist of all places. Found a Special with lugged frame and had to upgrade the wheels. Glad I did. Added some Grand Prix 5000s. Wow what a wheelset. Buy em, you wont regret.

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.
