Custom wheels are some of our favorite things to help our customers dial-in, and that's why we encourage anyone who doesn't see exactly what they're looking for in our already extensive custom wheel lineup to just get in touch and let us help them get just what they're looking for.
In this build, the customer was looking for a second wheelset that would allow them to turn their Ibis Hakka MX gravel bike into a speedy road bike. The result is this gorgeous wheelset built with Chris King R45D Centerlock hubs in matte jet, laced with Sapim CX-Ray spokes to Astral Veil6 Disc carbon rims. These tubeless compatible rims have a deep 60mm section with a 20mm internal width to help spread out the profile of 25-28mm road tires for stellar performance.
