Hi Guys,

I am currently running ENVE rims with Project321 hubs. Not happy with the weight and therefore looking for something lighter (I am trying to put together a WW bike). I have been talking with AX Lightness, but unfortunately they currently only sell the SRT CC rims with either Tune, Extralite or DT hubs. As I do not like these hub solutions, I am looking for input on alternatives. For reference, we are talking about a sub 1000g wheel set. Budget is no subject. Hope for some valid input :D

Thank you

Brgds

Assuming the rims are 230g each, and spokes + nipples around 200g you only have 340g for hubs. There are not many hubsets less than 340g for mtb disc. Extralite, Tune, Carbon-ti and POP are those that comes to mind.

I would go for the AX wheelset with Tune hubs :thumbup:
