Bearings

Bearings are an essential component of wheels and it's important your bearings perform as you want them to. All of our wheels come with fast endurance bearings as standard. These bearings are fast, and designed to stand the test of time so you can ride as much as you want, with confidence your bearings will keep spinning smoothly.

Spokes and Nipples

  • The SILT kW wheels are designed to be robust! For this reason, we have used Pillar's double butted, PDB spokes. The short 2mm section at either end of spoke, and 1.8mm for the middle section offers a strong built that will still accelerate quickly. (2.0mm - 1.8mm - 2.0mm) 
  • Extremely high-fatigue test results means they are extremely durable
  • Read more about Pillar Spokes
  • For nipples, we use BRASS Pillar double square head nipples

Lacing Pattern

  • 3-cross front / 3-cross rear

Additional items in the box

  • Tubeless valves (x2)
  • Spare spokes
  • Spare nipples

Weight limit: The upper combined weight limit (bike weight + rider weight + luggage) for these wheels is 135kg. If a rider is in excess of 90kg, we recommend regular wheel checks from an experienced bike mechanic.
