E11even have released a new line of carbon and (affordable) alloy gravel wheelsets accommodating tires from 28c right up to 50c. With a reliable, durable, serviceable DT SWISS 370 hubset and 24 spokes front and rear, these new gravel wheels are positioned as reasonably priced upgrades to OEM Spec gravel bikes.
E11even Gravel Wheels
The new line of gravel wheels comprises three options; the Alloy Disc Gravel 25mm, Carbon Disc Gravel 38mm, and Carbon Disc Gravel 50mm, named after their respective rim depths. All are hooked rims laced to a DT SWISS 370 centre-lock hubset, non-boost with 12mm x 142mm and 12mm x 100mm spacing. All three run 24 spokes, front and rear.
On all of E11even’s Carbon and Alloy Gravel Disc wheelsets those spokes are aero bladed. The composite rims have a 20.3mm internal diameter and a 27.5mm outer, allowing them to accommodate high volume tires up to 50c. The hooked carbon rims are tubeless compatible, but will still be a viable option for those still riding tube-type clinchers.
The E11even Carbon Disc Gravel 38mm wheelset with its lower profile rim sacrifices some of the aero properties of the 50mm version but benefits from a lower weight, coming in at 1820g.
Coming in at half the price of the E11even carbon options is the E11even Alloy Disc Gravel 25mm wheelset. If your budget can’t stretch to those lighter, more aerodynamic wheelsets, the Alloy Disc Gravel might be an attractive option, priced at $499.99.
This one features a slightly different hooked rim profile. It is 25mm deep with a 21mm internal width and a 25.5mm external width, accommodating 28c to 50c tires. The pair weigh a claimed 1820g.
Pricing & Availability
The new E11even Carbon Gravel Wheelsets retail at $999.99, while the alloy option is half the price at $499.99. All are available with Shimano freehubs only for 9/10/11 speed drivetrains.
