Sub-15 Superlight 700C Single Speed Wheelset
Wabi Sub-15 700C Superlight wheels are especially great for climbing or commuting where constant stops and starts amplify the awareness of rotating mass.
*We are currently out of black sub-15s. Expect more in stock mid-December.
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 Oklahoma. 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

Great wheel - small bolts
The wheels are fantastic; they look dope and the hubs are like butter. My only complaint with them is the bolt/washer that comes with them is pretty small diameter, and the amount it gripped on my dropouts was a lot standard axle nut. No matter how tight I made them, when I mashed down on the pedals, the wheel would slip in the dropouts. I bought some chain tensioners, though and that fixed the problem completely. Love riding on them now
Greta light wheels
The wheels seem great although I haven�۪t got that many miles on them yet. I feel like I ridden on them enough to give a review.
Does not let down
"Been waiting a while for an affordable single speed wheelset that was light. Most do not have brake surfaces and cost nearly double and they are still not as light as the sub 15 superlights. very quick, smooth, and nimble. I replaced some other wheels and noticed such a smooth ride quality immediately. I love these wheels! I wrapped them in 25mm conti gatorskins with conti race tubes. the rims are narrow, if I had one MINOR complaints is that the rims were a bit wider."
Spoiler alert: these are light
Shredding all pavement in my path. Accelerating like a Cheetah at every stop sign. This has been my life since bolting these bad boys on my missile chariot.
"Nice, light, shiny"
"Nice and light wheels! Beautifully designed and good craftsmanship. However the front wheel has come a bit out of true after just a couple weeks, hence the 4 stars. Hopefully it's just due to subpar tensioning in the initial setup. Also, the rear wheel didn't quite fit in my dropouts, by only a few mm. Needed to add a washer to the outside to be able to tighten down the bolts. Would be nice if the wheel shipped with spacers. "
