Praxis Works is a company that has demonstrated extraordinary attention to detail in both design and production of their line of bicycle components. From their start in 2007, they've expanded from chainrings and bottom brackets to small parts, cranksets, wheels; through it all, their mission hasn't changed. Praxis is a new force in the bicycle industry, and their new line of wheels demonstrates their dedication to bringing superior designs to life.
AL24 Mountain Wheels, available in 27.5 and 29" diameters, have been intelligently spec'd to bring together some of the most desirable attributes of a dependable high-mileage wheelset: stability, durability, serviceability, and value. Developed with Praxis employees' decades of experience riding and engineering bicycle components, the AL24's individual elements have been carefully selected and tested to ensure a hassle-free experience, regardless of your preferred terrain and riding style. As a value-oriented aluminum wheelset, the Praxis AL24 offers a slew of modern features at an impressive price.
The AL24 rims are everything one should expect from a modern mountain bike rim. Their 29mm width offers an excellent compromise, providing a foundation to function well with a wide variety of tire widths, from the skinny tires preferred by XC racers to the wider, chunkier varieties favored by All-Mountain and Enduro riders. Both front and rear rims feature an offset spoke bed to equalize spoke tension between high and low tension sides of the wheels. The tubeless-ready design includes a wide center channel for easier tire installation and removal, with sloped bead channels for secure retention. Valves and tubeless rim tape are included; wheels are shipped with these pre-installed. A bead-blasted finish with grey printed logos give the wheels an attractive, understated look.
The engineers at Praxis, understanding the difficulty of improving on time-tested existing hub designs, chose to partner with DT Swiss for their hubs. For the AL24s, the DT 370 is the hub of choice; its dependability and affordability perfectly fits the design philosophy of this wheelset. The hubs are easily serviced by a competent mechanic, with axle conversion kits and other service parts are easily obtained worldwide.
Praxis Wheels are equipped with durable Pillar double-butted 14-16 round spokes for an excellent balance of strength and durability. These J-bend spokes are equipped with external aluminum nipples; this common and time-tested design is highly serviceable, whether you need a quick wheel true or spoke replacement.
Praxis AL24 wheels are available in either 27.5 or 29" diameters, and are equipped with the most common axle standards, 15x100 front, and 12x142 rear. Being DT hubs, these are highly adaptable to different axle standards with a proper DT parts kit. Freehub options include Shimano 10/11 speed and Sram XD 11/12 speed.
