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!
This weeks wheel build of the week features another great pair of Boost MTB wheels built around the Whisky parts No 9 36W carbon rim. The Whisky rims are a modern carbon all-mountain / trail rim featuring a 30mm internal width designed to run tires in the 2.3 to 2.6 range. That makes these rims a great value for money alternative to other more expensive rims from IBIS, Santa Cruz or Zipp.
Wheel build of the week is back with this stunning Enduro / Trail wheelset featuring ENVE M730 carbon rims laced to ONYX hubs. While this is not a combination we see very often in our custom wheel dept, it's a great example of a bespoke build thats perfectly suited to its intended use.
