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.
Praxis describes their C32 carbon wheels as "strong, stable, responsive, and serviceable." These wheels are designed from the ground up by folks who ride, and who understand the critical importance of these four attributes. Praxis' decades of riding experience and a dedication to real-world product testing (in the hills of Santa Cruz, no less) ensure that these wheels are 100% ready for when tires hit the dirt. From the in-house designed rims and hub shells, to the carefully selected spokes and hub internals, the Praxis C32 presents itself as a wheelset of modern concepts ready for whatever trails and conditions they may encounter.
The existence of Praxis C32 rims is a direct reflection of the changing landscape of mountain biking - from the evolution of equipment to the combination of varied disciplines into the adventure that is modern off-road cycling. These carbon fiber rims feature a wide profile to match the growing preference for bigger tires and the increased traction they guarantee. Both front and rear rims feature a 3mm offset that improves spoke tension balance without sacrificing rim strength. The C32's hookless bead design increases impact strength while reducing weight, with full tubeless compatibility. The wheels are shipped with valves and tubeless tape pre-installed; the bead-lock tubeless design allows most tubeless tires to be fitted with a common floor pump.
Praxis is proud to compliment their own hub shell designs with DT Swiss' time-tested hub internals. The custom aluminum shells features super thick, high strength flanges designed specifically for Praxis' chosen 2x lacing pattern and spoke angles. These hub shells are fitted with full DT 350 axles and bearings, with upgraded 36-tooth star ratchets. These hubs are compatible with all DT Swiss 350 replacement parts for ease of service wherever in the world you may find yourself.
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 C32 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.
