We've paired the time-proven Chris King R45D hub with Stan's Grail MK3 rims to produce one of the most reliable, dependable and serviceable gravel wheelsets on the market. Each and every WBWO wheelset is individually crafted with precision in our purpose-built workshop right here in Rotorua, New Zealand, using methods that have been developed by our mechanics who have worked at the highest professional levels of the sport. Our wheels have proven themselves time and time again on home soil and internationally under the most demanding elite riders. We know that after your first spin on yours you won't want to ride anything else. STAN'S NOTUBES - GRAIL MK3 RIM At just over 24mm wide and featuring our deepest profile (24.5mm), the Grail is the most aerodynamic rim we’ve ever made. Though it rivals much deeper designs in the wind tunnel, we designed the Grail to be much more than just fast in a straight line. Our variable wall thickness spoke bed maximizes durability and ensures consistent spoke tension while keeping weight low. Its internal rim channel and true BST sidewalls combine to lend additional strength and create a tire profile that’s simply faster. Put to the test in some of the harshest racing conditions, the Grail has proven it has what it takes to accelerate quicker and roll faster than the competition. The Grail redefines tubeless road and cyclocross performance. Lightweight 440g tubeless rim design optimized for disc and tubeless Ultra fast-engaging and lightweight Neo hubs with Durasync Durable and light 6069 aluminum construction Patented BST-R tubeless rim inflates easier and offers a more secure tire fit 20.3mm WideRight rim design improves cornering and stability and lets tires roll faster Optimized for 25-40mm disc road, gravel, and cyclocross tires CHRIS KING HUBS The patented Chris King RingDrive, with 72-points of simultaneous-engagement for Boost hubs and 45-points for the R45D, will get your power to the ground fast, provide unmatched engagement, and give you that legendary Chris King angry-bee sound. Our bearings, available in steel and ceramic, have heat-treated, surgical grade steel races that are machined simultaneously, with tools of equal wear to ensure perfectly matched inner and outer races. The quality and speed of our bearings is what sets us apart from the competition and they are what you will feel and notice on every single ride. As Chris King bearing tracks burnish they get faster with age and all our hubs and bearings are fully serviceable for years upon years of demanding use.
