P1 Race Tech is a new offshoot of road-and-gravel wheel brand Princeton Carbon, and they’re out coming out of the gate swinging. Their first model, the Singularis M30, has been raced by Tom Pidcock and Pauline Ferrand-Prévot to multiple gold medal finishes.
They’ll also offer a M26, and both wheels use a variable depth rim, with internal widths of 26mm and 30mm as the model names imply.
The variable depth rim allows to improve the bracing angles for the spokes to create a stronger wheel via Radially Stagged Lacing. The M30 rims alternate between 32mm and 36mm deep, and the M26 between 24mm and 28mm.
The rims are only available in 29er, and they’re light, too. The M30 comes in at 418g (30mm internal, 36mm external width), and the M26 is 376g (26mm internal, 32mm external). They’re only drilled for spokes on the surface, too, leaving the rim bed intact so you don’t need rim tape to set up tubeless tires. That saves a few grams, but also keeps it laterally stiffer.
The lightest build is with their NonPlus hubs, coming in at 1,276g (M26) and 1,360g (M30). Or choose Industry Nine Hydra hubs (1,446g and 1,530g, respectively). All of them are availalbe with standard, Boost, and Superboost hub spacing, and 6-bolt or Center Lock brake mounts. ALl use Sapim CX-Ray spokes.
