The H Plus Son TB14 design was inspired by classic box rims originating from the steel frame era of competitive road cycling. Created to be both beautiful and function, the TB14 is a modern twist on a design from another era, implementing elements that give it an authentic look and then adding a few of our own design tricks to make it uniquely H Plus Son. As with all of our rims, the quality and level of finish is unmatched, attention to detail is everything.


Function and ride quality are every bit as important as form. To improve ride quality, handling and overall strength, the TB14 is made from our patented G609 hybrid alloy and joined using our invisible weld system. Double eyelets are used to reinforce and further strengthen the rim. Combining a low profile box section with a wider 23mm rim platform provides the torsional stiffness and power transfer we expect from modern wheels while maintaining the smooth flowing ride quality the original rim designs were renowned for. The brake surface is precision machined for enhanced stopping power. We anodise the rims after machining to maintain the originality and look from that era.


To maintain era correctness, we offer the TB14 in Anodised Grey, Anodised Black and Mirror polished finishes.

Craftworx XTrail rims are designed for riders looking for a high performance, light weight, tubeless ready, mountain bike / gravel rim that can carry a wide range of tyre widths.

Engineered to be both light and strong, the key to this is our STSS hybrid alloy. STSS is up to 20% stronger than alloys used by most manufacturers.

The narrow profile design of the XTrail rim, combined with the unique ride properties of our STSS alloy, creates a rim that is fast and agile through technical sections and compliant when riding over rock gardens, tree roots and unavoidable obstacles.
