HED Belgium Plus Disc Clincher Rim
In the wake of rising popularity for wide profile road rims, HED has decided to produce perhaps one of the absolute finest options available. Slightly wider than the venerable C2 rim, the HED Belgium Plus is a 25mm wide road tubeless option that guarantees all the positive attributes desired from a wide profile. By widening the rim profile, air volume within the tire is increased, which results in better handling in corners and a more supple ride over rough terrain. If you constantly find yourself on a variety of terrain, be it dirt or paved, the Plus rim from HED assures an ideal ride for years to come.
Chris King R45 Hubs (CenterLock Disc)
The R45 Disc brings disc brake compatibility to road bikes and gravel grinders with Chris King's legendary performance and durability. Manufactured with intense pride in Portland, Oregon, Chris King R45 hubs are touted by many as the Swiss watch of the cycling world. Utilizing a proprietary freehub body and ratchet design, Chris King offers instant engagement on or off the road for quick getaways and aggressive attacks. Unquestionably one the most durable hubs on the market, each R45 is additionally equipped with a simple bearing preload adjustment system that allows the hubs to be fine tuned for any sort of weather and conditions.
We chose to use CenterLock hubs as the stock rotor interface for this wheelset, but you can order the set with six bolt if you want. The reason we chose CenterLock is because we feel like the standard allows an improvement in rotor design by providing a deeper interface and therefor improved carrier design. Plus, if you'd like to go with an after market six bolt rotor design and have a CenterLock hub there are plenty of adapters, like these KCNC adapters.

In fact, each Sapim CX-Ray spoke has a tensile strength of up to 50% more than a straight gauge spoke and a fatigue life of nearly 3 times as long.
