Sometimes setting up a tubeless ready wheel can make you wonder how a company managed to get away with saying their rim was tubeless ready. You spend hours trying to get the tire to seat. Working out harder trying to pump the tires up than you ever will out on the trail. Your vocabulary will be full of new swear words, and everyone will give you a wide berth. To help you keep your friends we have now got some hookless Boost ready mountain bike wheels. Hookless wheels, if you are wondering, are what car and motorbike companies have been using for years. It makes it easier to get tubeless tires to seal quickly and with a great bond that doesn’t let the air out. The tech though does not end there. Our Toray T700 carbon rims are also asymmetric. Asymmetric rims are great for Boost applications. In asymmetric wheels, your spokes, Sapim Basic Leader since you asked, are offset from the center. We use asymmetric rims on our Boost wheels as they allow better spoke triangulation. Doing so allows us to build you stronger and stiffer wheels. The goal for all new mountain bike wheels. The reason for this is that it enables the drive side and non-drive side spokes to be of equal tension. Then to connect the wheel to your frame, we use DT Swiss 350S hubs in a 15 x 110 mm thru axle at the front and 12 x 148 mm thru axle at the back. With DT Swiss hubs you know your new wheels will last for a long time to come.
