Grit: The Grit is our endurance MTB wheel. If you ride long, fast, hilly trail rides, race XC or Marathon, or are weight and performance oriented, these are for you. The new Grit MTB rim uses the same 3D wound rim construction and T800 carbon as our road wheels which reduces the weight significantly.

For 2020 we have updated the Grit as the "wider is better" philosophy continues to prove true. We were able to drop weight slightly and increase width resulting in a 30mm deep x 34mm wide x 28mm internal rim with a shallow hookless bead. The squared off bead leading edge increases the impact resistance of the rim as well. 

Please note that for 2020 the rim logos are gloss black, not grey as shown. We will update photos when we get a minute!

If you need Microspline for your Shimano 12 speed drivetrain, ask about the great XTR and M900 hubs we have in stock! Straight pull, amazing quality, and at a great price point! Photos coming soon.

The Grit is built 28H 3 cross front and rear using Sapim CX Ray spokes in standard build. We can customize with a stiffer spoke upon request.

All wheels come tubeless taped with premium alloy valve stems installed, ready for you to mount tubeless tires. Valve stems will be color matched to nipple color where applicable. Through axles are not provided with wheels as they are part of the bike frame system.

Project 321

Beautiful hubs, top quality machining and finish, 6 bolt disc only, angular contact bearings with precise preload adjustment, threaded end caps, large hub flanges, angled flanges to match spoke angle, almost no spoke to hub contact, tension up like a straight pull.

New 2020 Next Grits

I just received my new 2020 Grits. I'm very very impressed with these wheels. Built with DT240's...and with tape a valves they are exactly 1360g!! That is a 28mm wide internal rim! The new ghosted graphics look great. The are almost too pretty to ride a scratch up...almost.

The Best Hand built wheels money can buy, period!

I’ve raced and ridden these wheels on some of the toughest mtb terrain around. Over 4K miles later and they’re still as true as the day they arrived!

Solid XC/Gravel workhorse

I have used these as gravel wheels with a 38mm tire and as a lightweight XC wheel with a 2.0 tire. Super light, and able to take anything a rock garden or pavé can dish out.

Love my grit wheels!

These wheels are my favorite. Super light weight and great for XC trail racing. They also look super fly and say hand built on them. Next does such an amazing job on their wheels.

All you'll ever need!

I've been riding these wheels on my XC race bike for two seasons now and have been throughly impressed. I've ridden these wheels HARD in every condition from Pisgah's wheel-cracking descents to the fireroad XC climbs out West. They're light enough to podium at UCI XC events and tough enough to handle my less than perfect line choices. Would and have recommended to friends.
