The trails in our neck of the woods get pretty hairy pretty fast so we've found them to be the perfect testing ground for fast and tough wheels like our Traverse 29 Carbon. The steep climbs and descents helped inspire some pretty radical designs and most importantly left us with no doubt that these wheels will exceed your expectations. Let's talk about those expectations… They include everything from the ability to stay true after launching off drops to being light enough to efficiently pedal to the top of a climb—and they all begin with the rim. Our engineers knew they wanted carbon fiber and with the inclusion of our Zero Bead Hook design they were able to implement a continuous fiber layup across the sidewall and rim bed. And when paired with a whopping 30-millimeter internal rim width they made a wheel that's super resilient to impact with low rolling resistance and incredible traction. You'll also find that it helps prevent 'burping' during hard cornering while also making tubeless set up quick and easy.   Along with light overall weight stiffness and durability another top priority for the Traverse was ease of use. First off we got rid of the creaky straight-pull spokes and corrosion-prone alloy nipples.   Next up we landed on 28 J-bend spokes for front and rear wheels that are all the same length—making it easy to find replacements if needed. And finally we engineered a new hub design with a wider profile and higher flange to aid in overall stiffness.   A wider rim does a variety of things for ride performance—it better supports the tire for increased confidence and grip and it affords you the ability to run lower pressures that help spread impact out over a larger surface area to reduce the risk of damage. And when you combine this girth with the notoriously fast rolling 29 platform you’re left with an incredibly stiff quick to accelerate wheelset that climbs just as well as it shreds descents.   After designing the perfect trail rim we kept our lightweight and durable design properties in mind with the wheel build hand-lacing the rims with DT Swiss 350 Classic hubs via 28 DT Swiss Competition Race spokes and brass Pro Lock nipples. Inside you'll find sealed cartridge bearings and a 36t quick engagement ratchet system for quick accelerations. We also wanted to ensure that each wheel was built correctly and we found that this could only be achieved by hand. Machines we found have a tendency to miss little mistakes that humans catch. Each wheelset comes packaged with a SRAM XD driver 11-speed freehub and a tubeless valve stem in order to make tubeless set up a touch easier. *Please note that Shimano freehubs are sold separately.
