To celebrate the results of more than two years of product development, e*thirteen is releasing a very limited edition wheelset. Called the AG1r, the wheels are replicas of the very wheels that Gwin has been punishing on the World Cup track with a few new graphics to commemorate the occasion.
According to e*thirteen the wheels coincide with the launch of their new carbon rim layup which results in increased durability and the rims carrying a lifetime warranty. The 27.5″ wheels feature a 30mm internal width hookless LG1 carbon rim with 32 holes. Meant for DH/park riding and racing, the rims are ideal for 27.5 x 2.3-2.6″ tires. The rims also feature an eagle – only Gwin’s signature eagle logo.
The hubs also feature special eagle graphics on the carbon hub shell with machined aluminum flanges that are widely spaced for the integrated 7 speed cassette. The hubs will also be available separately, in 110 x 20mm front and 150/157mm rear with claimed weights of 205/442g and prices of $199/$399.
The wheelset itself will be limited to just 25 sets making these extremely limited. Coming in at 2120g with the integrated 7 speed DH cassette, the wheels include tubeless tape, valves, three extra silver spokes, nipples, and nipple washers, plus the end caps for 150 or 157mm rear hubs. Available now.
