Truth: The Truth are a triathlon and time trial specific group of three wheels: a 70mm deep front, an 80mm deep rear, and a solid rear disc wheel. This item is the 70/80 spoked wheel combination.

The Truth is purpose built for the steady, high speed effort of a time trial or bike leg of a triathlon. While a deep rim will take more energy to get up to speed, once at speed the improved reduction in drag in all yaw angles over a more shallow rim is meaningful. The rims are 25mm wide external with a 19.5mm internal width, optimized for a 24mm to 26mm tire width.

The solid rear disc is a parallel side design, with the width remaining the same from the brake track to the hub. This will best complement the current design of aero TT frames which have become very narrow to reduce the frontal profile.

Disc wheels can be a handful in strong wind conditions or for smaller riders, but are measurably faster. For this reason we designed the Truth line up to allow the choice of solid rear disc or more forgiving 80mm deep rear so he rider to choose the best wheel for the conditions on race day.

The Truth 70/80 spoked wheels are available in rim brake with 20H front 24H rear laced radial front and 2:1 rear (8 radial non-drive side and 16 three cross drive side) which vastly improves spoke tension on a deep wheel. The Truth are also available in a disc brake version with 24H two cross front and rear for the new disc brake aero bikes.

All wheels come with a high pressure 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.

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.

NEXT Straight Pull 

Very light, aero, sleek straight pull hub, 48 point engagement with 6 pawls. Good bearings riding on internal axles front and rear with threaded end caps. Very easy disassembly for service. Quiet freehub. Available in black only. Made in Taiwan.

NEXT Disc Brake

Light, J bend (regular) spoked NEXT disc hub. Centerlock design. 48 point engagement with 6 pawls. Good bearings riding on internal axles front and rear with threaded end caps. Very easy disassembly for service. Quiet freehub. Available in several colors. Made in Taiwan.
