You might have noticed a trend of late in the Wheel Build of the Week: Matte Bourbon. We stocked-up in the last production run of this beautiful color, and so we've had enough hubsets to build wheelsets for a good number of riders, but that stock of matte bourbon is almost gone.
This is wheelset was built with one of the last sets of matte bourbon R45D hubsets, and it's a winner! If you were to come to us looking for the best gravel wheelset, this would be it. There are less-expensive options that would be great, but nothing quite touches the combination of light-weight, durability, ride quality, and tire-protection features that this wheelset has. It's just a stunning set no-matter how to figure it.
To give you a better idea of some specific products we have in stock that might be difficult to find deep within our site, we'll be updating this blog post each week with an overview of some in-stock products you might have missed.
If you're looking for something not listed here or have queries on any other product just ask our team!
Chris King offers headsets for almost all of the common head tube sizes and steerer tube configurations, and figuring out which one you need is pretty easy when you know what you're looking for. To help zero-in on the headset you’re looking for, we’ve put together this guide.
This week's wheel build of the week is a no compromise high performance gravel wheelset featuring the WTB CZR i23 carbon rim laced to Chris King R45D hubs with Ceramic bearings.
A combination of the lightweight carbon rim, plus super smooth low rolling resistance ceramic bearing hubs gives their lucky owner no excuses when it comes to getting the best performance on long gravel rides!
