Another week and another stunning and unusual wheelbuild. We don't build too many wheels with Knight rims, but these 50mm TLA make a great fast road / gravel wheelset which has been ridden to multiple CX national titles by Katie Compton. View the wheelset spec and pricing here.
This pair are laced up to the ever popular and dependable White Industries CLD hubs, with a Campagnolo driveshell. With Chris King discontinuing Campagnolo compatible hubs White Industries are a superb alternative.
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.
