Is this the lightest?
HDC Ceramic bearings are slightly lighter but offer the best rolling resistance. They are a bit more tricky to install and offer good resistance to moisture while still offering good mileage. If speed is your top priority the HDC is a good choice.
You can always trust Extralite to bring the lightest to the table. With their genius hub expertise the CyberHub SPD is proven and very dependable. It can be completely serviced and has their own Micro-Tuner which has been around for ages to get the bearing preload exact. They are stiff and light and build up to create a really stiff and crisp feeling wheel.
The rims feature a hook bead for reduced weight and Spread-tow natural carbon weave not only just looks rad but offers exceptional rim stiffness and durability - the rims are all hand made in Italy.
The Hookless bead sheds some weight and makes it a breeze to seat Tubeless Ready tyres. The rim profile offers the latest numbers for running wide tyres on your road or gravel bike - with the 20mm ID you can run up to a 40mm tyre with the right amount sidewall support.
Lastly the weight - 1,080g for a complete set. Nothing more needs to be said.
