As much as we find ourselves trying (and failing 🙄) to come up with witty puns every time we think of this bourbon Whisky wheelset, the fact is that it's a beauty that will ride as great as it looks!
This wheelset got one of the few remaining pairs of Chris King Matte Bourbon ISO boost hubs and paired them with rims that land right in that sweet spot of width and stiffness. The Whisky 36W rims have a very nice 30mm internal width, which will work great with tires in the 2.3-2.6 range that so many of us are riding these days, and they're nice and light to keep things feeling sporty😉. We like the thick hookless bead too, as it keeps tires from getting cut easily on rock impacts!
We've said it before, but why not just say it again: after decades of black wheels taking the top spot on the podium of desirability, it's just really cool to see more silver options that blend modern technology with classic looks. This wheelset blends classic looks with modern amenities.
