Huck: The Huck 27.5 is our All Mountain wheelset for 130-180mm travel bikes that get a little rowdier than a medium travel 29r. With a heavier gravity layup and 32H drilling, we have increased the durability of the rim to better complement the smaller wheel diameter and more gravity focused bikes.

The rim is 27.5 diameter, 32mm deep, 40mm wide, 31mm internal with hookless bead.  At 4.5mm wide, the beads are wide and reinforced, which is effective at preventing pinch flats and handling hard hits. These rims are great for...Show More >

The rim is 27.5 diameter, 32mm deep, 40mm wide, 31mm internal with hookless bead.  At 4.5mm wide, the beads are wide and reinforced, which is effective at preventing pinch flats and handling hard hits. These rims are great for use with a foam core rim protection device, and those are recommended for the intended use of these wheels.

We build these with Sapim Laser spokes which is a change from the thicker, stiffer Race spokes we used in the past. We have found the 1.5mm barrel vs 1.8mm is better, not from a weight perspective, but in that they have better flex which allows the wheel to absorb big hits better, ultimately protecting the wheel.

Huck model wheels utilize 6-bolt hubs in King and Project 321 vs Centerlock with Industry 9 hubs. The Industry 9 are available in 6-bolt upon request but we stock Centerlock.

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.

The Huck is built 32H 3-cross front and rear using Sapim Laser spokes and alloy nipples. Brass nipples upon request.

Configure your wheels with one of the many hubs we offer.

Dive deep into why we offer these hubs in this post.


 

DT Swiss 240

Very light, DT driver with 36 point engagement, straight pull spokes, centerlock (in disc), upgraded non ceramic bearings (vs DT 350). Both front and rear hubs have an internal axle, end caps go over the axle and do not contact bearings. Muted freehub sound. Available in black only. Made in Taiwan.


 

DT Swiss 350

DT driver with 18 point engagement, straight pull spokes, centerlock (in disc). Front hub has no internal axle, bearings ride directly on through axle or end caps. Lower quality bearings than DT 240. Muted freehub sound. Available in black only. Made in Taiwan.

Industry 9 Torch

I9 MTB or road disc hub, centerlock, 120 point engagement for very fast pick up. Quite light. Good bearings, teflon wiper seal for good protection and low drag. Buzzy freehub sound. Full range of colors available. Made in USA.

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. Magnetic pawls, 216 point freehub, no springs in freehub. Loud or silent options.  Made in Bend, OR. Comparable to Chris King quality.
