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!
When you want to go fast, Enve's super-deep SES 7.8 are at the top of a very exclusive selection of rims, and this week's Wheel Build of the Week is just about the best configuration we can think of using these gorgeous hoops.
When looking for a low-profile aero rim that's tubeless compatible, light-weight, and made-in-USA, there aren't a whole lot of options, but luckily Velocity USA has a very good one: the Aileron. That's the rim that's featured on this week's Wheel Build of the Week, so check it out!

We aim to ship out the majority of orders within 2-5 days of receiving your order. Many orders are assembled-to-order, or ordered on demand from our suppliers so can take a little longer than some other online retailers to ship out (we're a small independent retailer, not Amazon Prime!).
This allows us to offer you a much wider range of colors & specs at all times, but please consider this when ordering.
USPS is our default shipping method so most US domestic orders will take 2-5 days to arrive. For international orders this does take longer (up to 10 days in some cases), please choose an expedited shipping option from UPS or FEDEX when you checkout if you need parts faster than this!
Any questions on specs, colors, technical details please contact us.
