MIDL: Our traditional road disc wheels, the FAST and the QUICK, are 55mm and 35mm deep respectively and are optimized for speed or acceleration, as the names imply. They have the now-standard 19mm internal width with a high pressure rated hooked bead. 

The 700c tire market is evolving quickly with a shift to much larger tires across the spectrum of applications, but particularly in high speed, paved road riding and racing. We pulled the best characteristics of our road and gravel wheels and came up with a quiver-killer wheel that is also a superior road racer for use with 25mm to 30mm wide tires and allowing high pressure inflation (up to 120PSI). The depth, at 45mm, is smack in the middle of the aero range between the QUICK (35mm) and the FAST (55mm). The 21mm internal width is a high volume design for today's high volume tires. 

After testing these last year, everyone fell in love with these specs. They are extremely aero with a 23mm Shwalbe Pro-One front tire (25mm mounted) and roll really fast with excellent turn in when you lean the bike over as compared to a wider tire like a 28mm. Paired with a 25mm Shwalbe Pro-One rear tire (27.5 mounted) you get excellent rear shock absorption and grip.  A 28mm Pro-One tire seats like a dream with a floor pump and still flows air very smoothly onto the wider profile rim at 30mm wide. A 30mm G-One Speed is a fantastic every day tire that allows you to ride fast on tarmac and carefree on dirt. A 38mm G-One All Around or Bite opens up nicely for flotation on gravel. The high volume 28mm wide profile builds up into a much stiffer wheel, laterally, compared to the 19mm internal road wheels. This manifests itself in high speed corners where they track like a slot car. From a build standpoint, the high volume rim is structurally superior and builds up really nicely, coming to tension very evenly during build for a super round (fast) wheel.  

Also new for 2020, we have move to gloss black graphics on the same low gloss, unidirectional carbon rim. Color nipples really pop, and the gloss graphics add a touch of bling and look racier on a painted, aero carbon road frame.

We lace the MIDL in a 24 hole, two cross configuration front and rear using Sapim CX Ray aero spokes.

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. Quick release wheels will be provided with NEXT steel rod skewers for added security with disc brakes. Through axles are not provided with wheels as they are part of the bike frame system.

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.
