The new Air rims are laced in a 3 cross configuration using double butted spokes on to a Drone cassette hub for one of the strongest and lightest wheels available. These are Black rims laced onto black hubs using Black spokes with Chrome nipples.
We were very specific about having a cassette with super fast engagement. The end result is a hub that has 3 individually sprung pawls with 150 points of contact which creates an almost instant engagement when you start to pedal as well as being one of the most unique sounding cassettes on the market. So if anyone is running a ‘tall order’ cassette you will instantly be able to recognise it from the unique sound alone.
The hub also has a chrome driver and laser etched logo to complete the look. This hub is available with a 17mm female axle and 14mm bolts.
