This is a light pair of 26″ singlespeed wheels. The Hope Pro2 hubs are one of the best singlespeed hubs out there: 48 engagement points, reasonable weight, a good selection of colours, and exceptional durability.
I laced these hubs to the new Stan’s Crest rims. This is a replacement for the 355 with the newer Bead Socket Technology making tubeless tyres harder to burp. These are awesome rims with great durability and very light weight.
The rear wheel uses light weight DT Swiss Revolution spokes on both sides – the wide, parallel flanges build into a very stiff rear wheel even with these light spokes. The front wheel uses the same Revolutions on the right side but stiffer Competitions on the disc side. All spoke nipples are aluminium.
Weight is a very respectable 1594 grams.
