Probably our most special and unique wheelset: The first and only aero mountain bike wheels in the world.
Specially designed to meet the demands of beach racers. The niche in mountain biking where big tires, speed, and aero advantage come together. And, as it turns out, also very useful in any situation where the surface is loose and wide tires are the best choice, like snowbiking.
Research made clear that a 42 mm deep rim is the best size in combination with the already large tires. The width of 40 mm outside and 34 mm inside is optimal to support the tires without the tire being too bulged or too flat on the rim.
The rim has the typical 9th Wave signature: we have made the rims asymmetrical. We do this with all our rims as soon as we see the possibility. Because of the asymmetrical shape, we can build better quality wheels with a minimal difference in spoke tension between both sides of the wheels. The construction quality of the wheels and ultimately the driving characteristics will benefit from this.
Wheels are built with DT Swiss Aerolite spokes and brass nipples and with standard or boost hubs. Other configurations are available.
All 9th Wave tubeless wheels come standard with rim tape and lightweight aluminum valves installed. And, if you order disc brake rotors with your wheels, we will already mount these for you. All, so you can get out there and ride your new wheels as soon as possible!
Wheelsets with a Lefty front wheel will by default be made with a Cannondale Ai offset rear wheel. If you do not need Ai offset, please make a note when you place the order!
