At 1335g, this is a great lightweight racing wheelset with a slightly classic look – the original customer requested silver CX-Ray spokes, which will look amazing with tan-wall tyres.

Owen Wheels carbon lightweight gravel wheels

The shallow-section carbon fibre rims are stiff and light; they’re 24mm deep and 27mm wide (22mm internal). They’re tubeless-compatible and hookless (so will take a max tyre pressure of 50psi) so very well-suited to cyclocross tyres, or gravel tyres up to about 48c.

The hubs are the same as I use in the best-selling Frylands wheelset, so although they’re currently set up for 12mm thru-axles, they’re convertible to 15mm thru or quick release front axle, and standard 135mm quick release rear axle.

They’d normally cost £1091, this pair are on sale at £818.
