Ibis Cycles' Hakka MX is one of a new breed of bikes that are designed with clearance for larger tires (especially with 650B/27.5" wheels and tires), but also make for a very sprightly road bike. 

 

 

This one, has two wheelsets, which are pretty much the same build as wheels we offer: the road set is a set of Chris King R45D Centerlock hubs that is laced with Sapim CX-Ray spokes to Astral Cycling's deep Veil 6 rims.  This makes for an impressive all-around road wheelset that will help you slice through the air.  Running 28mm tubeless tires, the bike's ride is fast, smooth, and confidence-inspiring.  Check out this wheelset here.

 

 

With the second wheelset, which is built on White Industries CLD hubs using Sapim CX-Ray spokes laced to White Industries' own G25A rims, the bike changes completely.  Rolling on 27.5 x 2.1" tubeless knobbies, the bike is ready to charge the deepest gravel, and frankly, can handle a lot of singletrack too, making it a sweet all-day mixed-terrain adventure bike.  Check out this wheelset here.

 

Having a bit of a thing for wheels, we're always stoked when we find a bike that makes such good use of a simple wheel change. With wheels having such a huge effect on ride quality anyway, being able to swap them on the same bike and actually make use of those changes without needing to change bikes is a real boon, and we feel like it allows a rider to put their resources into one great bike that can actually play a double role well. Kudos to Ibis and other brands that are making bikes that allow for this!

We're here to supply the wheels to help riders transform their bikes and hone-in on the ride quality that they're after! 😉
