FEATURED BUILD - FSW3 with PowerTap.

Our last trip to the wind tunnel proved that the Kinlin rims in our FSW3 wheels are every bit as fast as those 40+mm carbons you use on race day. So now that your everyday alloys can also be your game day wheels, there's no better time to add a PowerTap. Especially since we've added tires (installed) and knocked $135 off the price.

These are the wheels that we ride ourselves, and which we recommend for almost any rider out there. Hand built by us, here. Fast, strong, light, stiff, durable, and supermodel good looks. Train on them, race on them, chase KOMs on them, ride 'em hard and put 'em away wet (actually you should take better care of your equipment than that).  For use with tubes or tubeless. Includes tubeless compatible rim tape (installed) and skewers (rim brake versions only).

RIMS:
FSW3 wheels are built with 31mm deep, 24mm wide, 19mm internal width tubeless ready alloy rims with a matte black finish. 9.75mm brake track height. 485g per rim. Manufactured by Kinlin.

FSW3 Disc wheels use 32mm deep, 24mm wide, 19mm internal width tubeless ready alloy rims with a 3mm offset and the same matte finish. 490g per rim. Manufactured by Kinlin.
