Spinergy had a few new wheels on display for 2009, like this rear track wheel using a full carbon rim with PBO spokes to keep it super light…in the neighborhood of 780g (tubular, 840g clincher).  They use their road front wheel for track, but tighten up the spoke tension depending on the rider.

They also had a new 29’er mountain bike wheel and DH/AM wheels with double-thick PBO spokes.  If nothing else, this should bring some serious weight loss to wheelsets that are usually a little heavier.  Read “more” for pics and specs…

Here’s the 29er disc wheelset (front shown).  It uses an All-mountain strength rim with an XC hub and PBO spokes to keep the weight at 1840g per set.

PBO spokes are basically 30,000 fibers inside a weatherproof/UV stable coating that’s twice as strong as stainless steel spokes at half the weight.  I had an old pair of Spinergy SPOX wheels that used similar spokes and they were really, really light.  While they’ve changed them a little since then, my first impression was how much quicker my bike reacted because of the decreased rotating mass…so much quicker, in fact, that it took a few rides before I wasn’t all over the trail.

Their all new DH wheelset uses only 24 spokes, but each one is twice as thick as the PBO on the XC and road wheels…60,000 fibers per spoke.  They’re offered in 135mm (2300g) and 150mm (2400g) hub widths.

I saw Travis Pastrana ride these at St. Louis Supercross. Anyone know anything about them?
