Craftworx Monster 27.5+
Mountain Bike Wheel Set
A huge upgrade for your plus mountain bike for more speed and improved handling
Plus size bikes are a great option for hitting the trails and exploring new places. They are also a popular wheel size for e-bikes. Just like other mountain bikes and road bikes, the stock wheels that come with the bike are normally spec'd to meet a price point.
Wheels however are the best upgrade you can make. The rotating mass of a wheel is vitally important to reduce plus you can gain an improved ride quality through a better rim design and our hubs are super smooth!
The 2018 Craftworx Monster wheel set uses the same alloy technologhy as the rest of our mtb range just enhanced for a plus sized tyre. Lightweight, fast and strong, these wheels will probably save a good 300-400 grams off your stock wheels!
The hub is all new for 2018 and features our new 72 point engagement so your power gets to the wheel quicker. That is up to 4 times quicker than many standard hubs!
Forget about upgrading those brakes, upgrading gears or changing suspension parts, the best 'bang for your bucks' improvement you can make is by changing to a better wheel set!
DESIGNED FOR THE WAY YOU RIDE -Plus sized mountain bikes give you the ability to run a very wide tyre and at low pressures. To allow the tyre to do its thing properly, you need a wide rim. The 45mm internal width is ideal for 2.8 to 3 inch tyres. It is a very lightweight wheel set but it is also strong. The hybrid alloy we use allows us to tune the ride quality for maximum control and strength while producing a wheel set that only weighs 1992 grams.
TUBELESS READY -Run the Monster MTB wheels tubeless for more traction and speed on the trails and no punctures! Fitting tubeless tyres can be difficult but not on our Monster wheels. We’ve designed our wheels to make fitting tubeless ready tyres easier! You’ll be surprised at how easy it is!
TOP OF THE LINE HUBS - The Monster wheel set is built with our new Stealth mountain bike hubs. Features like oversized sealed bearings for smooth and fast rolling and maxmum durability, sleek annodised finish and multiple options for axles types and sizes make it an awesome hub that matches the look of the wheel set perfectly.
It also uses a new 72 point engagement free hub. What is that you ask? Well that means that when you start to pedal, there is a much shorter gap between you beginning the pedal stroke and the hub engaging the drive mechanism. Ok, but what will that do for me? That means that coming out of corners, riding over rocks at slower speed and when you start pedaling in the climbs, the hub will engage with a lot less spin of the pedals. Plus, all those clicks does make a very sweet sound!! As a comparison, we compared that to a hub from a popular well known Swiss brand and our hubs engaged 4 times for every one of theirs!!
