We hope that you are enjoying our Black Friday / Cyber Monday deals on AVT. Just a reminder that during this period our offices are closed for the Thanksgiving holiday from Thursday Nov 28th until Monday Dec 2nd.
Please be patient during this time as it will take us longer to ship out orders and respond to customer enquiries due to a higher than normal sales volume.
Orders placed during this time will ship out from Wed Dec 5th, with certain products taking longer if assembly is required (hubs in particular).
Fresh from the Chris King tech team are these new exploded diagrams of the R45D Rear and Boost Centerlock Front & Rear hubs. Essential if you're looking to upgrade or service your hub and need to know which specific part numbers to buy.
This week's wheel build of the week is another super versatile gravel set up that's equally at home on road or CX.
Astral's Wanderlust Carbon rim is originally designed as a lightweight adventure / gravel rim capable of running up to 2.5" tires. But given their rim profile (23mm internal, 29mm external) they can perform double (or triple) duty as a pure road rim or cyclo-cross race wheelset.
When you think of high end bike components, sustainability is maybe not the first thing that comes to mind. But it's always been a big motivation for us here at AVT as the majority of the brands we sell are manufactured in a pretty sustainable way, just check out this video from Chris King himself explaining the company's commitment to sustainability.
