What is it?

When Boyd Cycling introduced the Jocassee as a 650b gravel wheelset in 2017, it was in a very unique position. 650b for gravel was in its infancy. Most people were running 32 to 35mm tires for gravel rides. Fast forward a few short years later and almost all gravel bikes have the ability to run both 700c and 650b tire sizes. While 700c remains the overwhelming favorite, the ability to have a dual purpose bicycle is a large attraction for people buying a new gravel bike.

Throw in our Quest centerlock hubs, Pillar Wing 20 spokes, external nipples and you have the ideal gravel wheel set, built to withstand your hardest rides on your most adventurous weekends!

For those of us looking for larger tires (36mm+), the new Jocassee gives a wide rim platform for modern gravel tires. Boasting a 26mm internal width, the updated Jocassee goes to a shallower and lighter 25mm depth. This allows the rim weight to go from 460 grams per rim down to 338 grams in a 650b and 353 grams in a 700c.

Bikepacking, gravel events, solo exploration are some of the places where saving weight and having durability will be an advantage. If you are looking to go further and faster into the heart of adventure, the Jocassee is for you.

Jocassee

DESIGNED FOR HIGH VOLUME TIRES + ADVENTUROUS RIDING

Riders looking for maximum traction, better handling, and the protection a larger tire provides will enjoy the rim profile combined with low weight.

Why do I need it?

Shave up to two pounds on your bike compared to a stock OEM set, while increasing your durability.

If you want more comfort on your rides, or are looking for the ultimate responsive feel in sand, gravel, or broken path, the Jocassee 700c is your next wheel. If you are experiencing toe-overlap with your current setup, want to have more comfort on your rides and looking for the ultimate responsive feel in sand, gravel, or broken path, the Jocassee 650B is your next wheel. 

 The Jocassee is (of course) tubeless compatible and features a hookless rim, perfect for running high volume / low pressure tires. The spoke nipples are offset by 2.8mm which allows for more even spoke tension between right and left side of the wheel. This makes for a wheel that holds tension better and prevents broken spokes. However, in the event a wheel ever does need to be trued, the Jocassees are built with easy to adjust external nipples and feature J-Bend spokes.

     The Jocassees are built on the highly rated Quest hubs. Weighing in at 120 grams front and 245 grams rear, the Quest features a centerlock design, quick 5 degree engagement, tool free hub assembly and service, and the ability to swap between all end cap options and all drivers (Shimano Hyperglide and Microspline, Sram XDR, Campy and Campy N3W). The Quest hubs come with Enduro Abec 5 LLU/LLB bearings.

behind the name: jocassee

Jocassee is a heritage preserve in the Northwest corner of South Carolina. Containing over 100 miles of gravel roads, Jocassee is a favorite of cyclists looking for a very difficult gravel ride. Founder, Boyd Johnson, started riding in Jocassee on a road bike with 25mm tires in the early 2010s (not highly recommended at all!). Over time gravel started to emerge as a discipline, people migrated to cyclocross bikes, followed by gravel specific bikes.
