Fast: The Fast is a deeper rim at 55mm that comes into its own at the speeds that you encounter in road and criterium racing with an emphasis on reduced aero drag. At a depth comparable to a Zipp 404, they still handle well in all but the worst wind conditions while providing an aero and stiffness advantage over the Quick. Both models are 25mm wide external with a 19.5mm internal width, optimized for a 24mm to 26mm tire width.

The Fast rim brake version is built 20H radial front and 24H two cross rear using Sapim CX Ray spokes in standard build. We can customize with a stiffer spoke upon request. 

All wheels come with a rim strip installed for conventional inner tubes, NEXT titanium rod skewers, and carbon specific brake pads, which should be used at all times on the NEXT carbon rims. Alloy wheels may be used with your existing brake pads.

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.

NEXT Straight Pull
