Boyd’s Recommendation: WTB Byway 650x47mm tires (35 psi), 11/32 Ultegra Cassette, 140mm rotors, Boyd Wheel Bag and Boyd Cycling Kit
Lightweight: The 1550g wheelset weight is strong where it counts and shaves weight everywhere else. Designed from the ground up as a disk brake specific rim.
Wider is Better: 29.6mm external, 24mm internal rim width provides a stable platform for your favorite 42mm to 53mm tire. The hookless rim profile is easier to seat vs hooked.
Saving Watts: 36mm mid-height aerodynamic rim depth is stable in crosswinds, headwinds and the almighty tailwind.
Quest Disc Brake Hubs: Stiff, stable, 5 degrees of engagement, wide flange spacing, and ease of service with quick swap freehub design. Centerlock disk. 6 bolt adapter available separately.
Laser engraved encaps: Pressfit laser engraved endcaps take the guesswork out of which axle configuration your wheel is configured for. QR and Thru-Axle Compatible.
Nipples & Spokes: External brass nipples and j-bend spokes, pre-stressed in house, focused on longevity and ease of service. 2.8mm spoke offset ensures a more even tension between each side of the wheel.
Tubeless Ready: Setup with two layers of lightweight rim tape, offset wingnut valvestem and Tickled Pink tubeless sealant.
