Introducing the Phalanx, Fair Wheel Bikes’ entry level wide profile road wheelset. Designed and produced by our professional wheel builders, the Phalanx will handle ideally for riders under 200 lbs. Built with the wider profile Kinlin XC-279 rim taking advantage of the ride characteristics that are attained with a wider tire contact patch, while simultaneously keeping the build under budget. Constructed with longevity in mind, the Phalanx is constructed using all name brand components, including Kinlin XC-279 rims, Sapim Laser spokes, and DT Swiss 350 hubs.
Kinlin XC-279 Rims
Kinlin’s version of the wider 23 mm profile road rim, constructed from extruded niobium-aluminum alloy and joined with a sturdy sleeved joint. Each rim is anodized black and comes with a perfectly machined sidewall for an excellent brake / rim interface. Each rim comes with a lightweight rim strip installed for your convenience.
DT Swiss 350 Hubs
Easily one of the most desirable hubs on the market for its unparalleled durability and budget minded price tag. Tipping the scale at a feathery 149 g and 252 g package front and rear, while combining the finest traits of price, reliability, and serviceability, the DT 350 is a fantastic overall hub choice.
Sapim Laser Spokes
Lightweight, butted spokes that utilize a heavily tapered mid section which results in both higher tensile strength and reduced weight. Constructed using Sapim’s proprietary forging process, each spoke has a fatigue life 3 times that of a standard spoke, and 50% higher tensile strength.
