Rolling big no longer means rolling heavy, and now rolling light doesn’t mean rolling expensive. Or, at least, not too expensive. Framed has made a name for itself offering carbon and alloy bikes at very affordable prices, and now they’re rolled out this set of carbon-rimmed fat bike wheels to provide a similarly well-spec’d budget offering to wheel upgrades.
The rims are 80mm wide, are tubeless ready and (they say) ready for “any abuse you can throw at them.” Full specs, weights and pricing below…
They’re laced to the relatively new DT Swiss Big Ride hubs, but with a price of $1,099, they’re only about $100 more than the complete DT Swiss Big Ride wheelset! And they’re lighter, coming in at a claimed weight of 2,090g. So, lighter, presumably stiffer, and about the same price as an alloy rimmed wheelset…what’s not to like?
Pick between standard and XD freehub bodies, Centerlock or 6-bolt disc brake mounts. Available online at the-house.com or through dealers upon request.
