Custom DT Swiss 240s Wheel Builder, 29″ Alloy Components
WTB, RACE FACE & IBIS rims are available in a variety of widths and layups. As a result rider’s fine tune builds depending on riding style, tire preference (controlling shape / volume with rim width), ground speed and aggressiveness.
WTB Enduro lineup
The ASYM has been one of the most popular rims since it’s release. It is available with 29mm and 35mm internal widths and as a result pairs well with a wide range of tires. The asymmetrical design produces a stiff wheel build, particularly on boost spacing.
The FREQUENCY and KOM are both available in 29mm internals and the Frequency is available in a 25mm option for riders looking for less volume.
IBIS and RACE FACE have been leaders in the alloy rim game for many seasons – with good reason: performance.
The IBIS “38” (738, 938) features a 34mm internal with excellent tire retention from 2.3 to 2.8″ offerings. These are asymmetrical rims for maximum strength.
RACE FACE brings the ARC series with a multitude of internal widths allowing riders to dial in their builds with speed, performance, and ideal tire size in mind. Enduro riders typically gravitate to the 27mm, 30mm and 35mm offerings.
At BikeCo we work with DT Swiss spokes. Period. DT Swiss has the ultimate in production technology and quality control.
We work with black spokes. The hard black ano is a technical coating and therefore adds stiffness and longevity. Most colored spokes DO NOT offer this level of technical coating – why take the chance.
We offer three spoke options online for both the front and rear wheels.
DOUBLE BUTTED: For maximum strength and stiffness choose the Double Butted option. DT Swiss Double butted spokes are forged with a narrower center section which greatly improves the flow of stress. The flow of stress attributes of a properly butted spoke mean Double butted spokes will typically outperform straight pull options for strength and longevity.
SUPERCOMP: Looking for the light weight option? It makes sense – there are a lot of spokes and saving a bit on each one goes a long way. SuperComp spokes are triple butted as a result they offer ultimate weight savings and flow of stress properties.
MIX: Looking for something in the middle? Let’s build with stiffer Double Butted spokes on the more stressed half – drive side (rear) or brake side (front) while using SuperComp for the other half. This is extremely popular when we build wheels.
Are you a rider who is typically really light on wheels, but occasionally might bash one? SuperComp front and Mix Rear. Are you hard on wheels – but the rear more than the front (this is how I tend to ride…)? A mix front with a double butted rear dials you in.
Most wheels are built with Alloy nipples (which have color options). If you’re looking for max strength it’s time for ProLocks. But you want custom nipple color arrangements? No issue, let us know on the contact form.
You can’t finish off your new wheels with old rubber, well you can, choose none – but, come on… We offer the best Enduro tires from Maxxis, Schwalbe, WTB and Onza.
So you have your favorite go to? We probably have it on the builder for you.
Is it time for something different? Think about what you love and hate on your current setup.
Looking for more grip when you initiate a turn (low lean angle)? Less channel opening, between the center section and cornering lug, and more transitional knob, instead of channel will help.
Need for more support when you’re blasting turns? Check out the sidewall technology – the new DoubleDefense from Maxxis and EDC from Onza are Enduro race favorites.
Take a look at some of the most relevant Enduro tread patterns on the market below.
The Maxxis lineup features dual compound and triple compound rubber (3C) with a variety of sidewall technologies (EXO, DD in particular)
The Minion DHF front paired with an Aggressor rear has been a popular setup recently. The Minion, both DHF and DHR II are favored front and rear by riders in a variety of terrain.
ADDIX rubber has changed the game for Schwalbe riders. Better traction, longer lasting tires with their popular tread patterns.
Wider rims allow wider tires without compromising too much top speed meaning 2.6″ tires aren’t just for lift assist or shuttle days anymore. A very popular package is the Magic Mary with the Nobby Nic rear due to it’s confidence through maximum traction.
Are you looking for tires that will take a beating? WTB tires offer some of the toughest sidewall technology on the market.
We often support Jr. Development racing here at BikeCo – and those youngsters are HARD on product. We ran WTB tires for seasons without issue while throwing tons of abuse at them.
As mentioned – Jr. racers are hard on things, particularly tires. So last season we ran Ibex/Citius combos which survived the biggest Enduro races on the calendar without issue.
Check out the EDC sidewall for maximum protection from all the sharp, aggressive things we tend to find at speed on trail. These sidewalls provide excellent support, even at low air pressures, allowing larger or faster riders to rip into corners with confidence.
