We love our ‘cross at Stayer (being 50% Belgian-owned we can't escape it)
and this is our ultimate Cyclocross racing wheel set. Race proven these wheels have brought a multitude of riders to local victories, league wins and even the UK National Championships podium in 2019. And of course a lot of fun!
This wheelset is built withthe UK's own Hope RS4 or PRO4 hubs as standard (as they are simply amazing) but we also offer some excellent HUBgrade options if a different hub set tickles your fancy!We build all of our wheels to order anyway.
Cross is all about accelerations and decelerations, bumps, impacts, slipping and sliding, and every time the bike gets a hose down at the end. That’s what these wheels are made for; they are strong and durable with no compromises made on quality of components and build, we use all the best bits for the job.
Because ‘cross is a little different from other disciplines and a serious rider might want several sets we offer a discount on these builds; 15% OFF a second CX wheelset.Also off a 3rd or 4th set, in that case just get in touch :)
Supply of DT Swiss hubs is currently very unreliable, however! If you are set on a DT build please do just send us an email with your DT Swiss hopes and dreams and we will see what's available/in stock on a case by case basis.

and we like to know who (and what) we're building for as you might need a few more spokes, or a few less, or maybe you need brass nipples rather than alloy, or maybe you'd prefer silver spokes to black..!
So please do pop some information in the order notes about your weight, your intended use, and anything else you'd like to say so that we can make that this wheel set is built absolutely right for you.
Our tubular CX rims are specifically designed for cyclocross tubs to be glued perfectly throughout the width and length of the base tape; the rims are wide with a shallow rim bed curve, the perfect shape for your tubs. There are no grooves to fill with a moat of glue in order to get it to stick, it just sticks and then you can try to roll it off.

HOPE CYCLOCROSS WHEELSET SPECS
Lancashire made quality hubs which can add a some extra sound effects and/or a nice bit of bling to your bike! They are beautifully engineered, durable and versatile - one of the great features for off-road use being the option of a steel Shimano free-hub body; at no extra cost (but at an extra 85g) these are a great choice if you're a powerful rider and/or carry weight on adventures and prioritise durability over weight-saving.
It’s not the tradition in selling wheels but we round up our weights, better that they turnout slightly lighter than heavier when you get them out of the box.
If you'd like us to install your tubs or tubeless tyres please just get in touch !We can also provide and install tubulars by Challenge and clinchers or tubeless tyres by any brand (I think!); WTB, Schwalbe, Hutchinson, Vittoria, Michelin, Panaracer etc.
HUB UPGRADE (HUBGRADE™) OPTIONS!
BITEX BX106 HUBS
These are some of the best value hubs out there .full stop!exclamation mark. They are a lightweight (50g lighter for the set then Hope RS4s) as well as durable option, which is absolutely not a given with more budget hubs. We've been using these for years, including for cyclocross (the ultimate hub test! As you might be aware if you're here reading this :)) and they've been excellent - very reliable, good bearing quality and longevity as well as easily servicable. There's a reason that this is the hubset that most UK wheelbuilders re-brand as their own.And Judith runs them on her own gravel bike.
Made in the Black Forest! Which you will can in Germany. These are absolutely beautifully made, high quality and above all super light hubs. They also come in some stunning colours and with different bearing options - Standard, Enduro and Ceramic - please just get in touch for a quote for a bearing up-or-down-grade !
KILL HILL & CLIMB CL
DT SWISS HUBS (currently the supply of these is very unreliable, so please do just get in touch if you are interested and we'll see what's possible! We just can't do them as our standard setup at the moment.)
So the DT 350s are amazing as they are, they genuinely are. But recently DT Swiss have further HUBgraded their lighter models - the 240 and the 180 making them even better, rather than predominantly 'just lighter'. Both now have the new Ratchet EXP Technology which has a higher ratchet count (=faster engagement), faster full engagement, wider spacing on the rear hub body bearings (= increased axle stiffness and bearing lifespan), even lighter yet, easier to disassemble and service .. and the finish looks ace.
