We like our alloy wheels like our women like their men - wide, stiff, reliable and of at least average depth. Our FSW 23 is our do-it-most wheelset - 23mm wide at the brake track with the same 18mm inside width as our Rail for superb road feel, 28mm deep for confidence-inspiring stiffness when accelerating or hard cornering, and the predictable all-conditions braking of alloy.
Like all our wheelsets, the FSW 23 is available with your choice of November by Novatec hubs, Chris King R45s, White Industries T11s or PowerTap hubs. We build them by hand in Maryland with lightweight double-butted Sapim Laser spokes and ship them with skewers, rim tape and a nod of admiration at your taste for both performance and utility.
FSW 23s include:
- Rim strips
- Premium Hubs are available.
Shipping/handling for the FSW wheelset is $35. MD residents pay 6% sales tax.
