Ellsworth All Mountain Wheelset

5/5 (1 Reviews)
MSRP : $990.00


Product Description

The best wheels for your Moment or other freeride bike, these wheels are at home on XC singletrack, technical terrain or a freeride park. All Mountains feature 32x Quad Butted Spokes with 3-cross special lacing to create a wheel that rolls and tracks like no other. With more spokes and less weight than its competitors and multiple axle configurations, it is a true take anywhere, ride anything rim. The 29mm wide cross section on our Taper Wall Rims makes this wheel bombproof without the weight. Constructed of xxx9 Aluminum, the wide cross section easily accommodates wider tires for better traction, cornering and stability on rough terrain. The overall result is a lighter wheel in an extremely durable package with more ground contact and better torsional rigidity.

Strengths:    Made in America,Straight pull spokes,very light,strong wheelset.Converted to tubeless with no problems.Hubs spin forever.Cool graphics on rims.Hand built.

Weaknesses:    Wanted red hubs,or blue

Bottom Line:   
I wanted to build up custom King wheelset,But decided to try these.I have beat the crap out of them for over a year.The wheelset has been a pleasent suprise.They are very light but super strong.Anodized graphics don`t peel off or chip.And American made.These are a keeper.The trails I ride are mostly technical,rocky with plenty of climbing.If your looking for a wheelset that can handle many types of terrain,that roll super smooth and stiff. Consider these

Is it worth it to buy the Haven wheel, for double the price, o ... Read More »

I need to get some new tires and I'm looking at the Maxxis ardents since I want more grip in the corners when descending but don't want to sacrifice a ... Read More »
