About Handsling Hookless Tubeless Wheels

The new Handsling Hookless Tubeless wheels were developed with aerodynamics in mind for fast road work with the latest tubeless tyres.

Based on our existing 40mm deep hookless tubeless wheels, but updated to be more aerodynamic with a narrower toroidal profile and rim depths of 35mm, 45mm and 55mm. The rims are just over 28mm at their widest point but narrow to 27mm at the rim edge.

The new rim profile was aerodynamically optimised to work with 25-28mm road tyres, and the internal width of 22-23mm means wider tyres of up to 45mm can easily be seated. They are ideal for big volume road or wide gravel or grippy cyclocross tubeless tyres.

The hookless design produces a much lighter rim, allowing faster acceleration and more responsive feel. 

The wheel are available in the following combinations, with weights approximately as follows:

35mm/35mm - 1320g +/- 10g

35mm/45mm - 1350g +/- 10g

45mm/45mm - 1380g +/- 10g

45mm/55mm - 1440g +/- 10g

55mm/55mm - 1500g +/- 10g

The wheels are made in the UK by master wheelbuilder, Ian Lynch, using bespoke software, developed in-house, to get the most out of the wheel and provide consistent spoke tension throughout.

Reliable, race proven and fast Handsling hubs are expertly mated to Pillar Wing20 spokes to give the ultimate set-up.

The rims are finished with gloss embossed HANDSLING logos they are subtle and make any bike look amazing.  

Why go hookless?  

Hookless rims are the norm in mountain biking, and are commonplace in cyclocross and gravel. Road cycling is also starting to embrace the combination of tubeless tyres and hookless rims. 

Whereas an inner tube applies pressure upwards, trying to lift the tyre off the rim, tubeless tyres exert lateral force against the rim sidewall, negating the need for a hook to secure the tyre.

If you have decided that tubeless tyres are the way forward, and want to get the maximum performance benefits by using hookless then these wheels are what you need.

What tyres to pair them with? 

While optimised for 25 to 28mm road tyres, the rim profile will work with tyres up to 45mm tyres.

Low rolling resistance

These wheels are designed for wide tubeless tyres that have been shown to offer the lowest rolling resistance of all tyres. 

Grip

Hookless tubeless technology allows you to run lower pressures, improving grip over on greasy climbs and when cornering.

Comfort

These lower pressures improve ride comfort massively, a factor long overlooked in road riding especially. Added comfort allows you to finish your ride in much fresher condition meaning you can nail that sprint or final climb and recover better for the next event.

Cornering speed

The wide internal width allows the tyre to form a uniform inverted U-shaped profile, which means a much smooth transition onto the shoulder of the tyre when cornering. By offering extra support to tyres, even at lower pressures, these wheels offer improved grip and cornering performance.

Features:

  • 27mm wide carbon rim in 35mm, 45mm, 55mm depths 
  • Light weight for fast acceleration
  • Strong for impact absorption
  • Wide profile for improved handling in all conditions
  • Hookless for use with the latest tubeless tyres
  • No braking surface
  • Ideal for supporting wider road tubeless tyres that promise lower rolling resistance

Testimonials

"I am blown away by the performance of the bike in all situations flats, descents, acceleration and even more astonished by the improvement in my climbing... friends are now questioning what has happened to their performance! In total transparency I tell them “it’s not me, it’s the bike”."

"I have finally today finished building my Handsling. I’m just back from its first ride. And WOW. What a great bike. So smooth yet fast and stiff. Can’t wait to get out and ride it some more over the weekend. You really have designed a great bike here. As I say blown away with how it rides. It rides as well maybe even slightly better than my S works tarmac haha."

"I was looking for a high-performance road bike for amateur races and triathlons, but also club rides and blasting around the local lanes. I just don’t get how they made A1R0evo so stiff and responsive, but also so comfortable. I went for 28c tyres and the bike ploughs through road debris and potholes. The ride is assured and comes alive when you’re going full gas.”

"Just wanted to follow up now that it's been almost six months since I received the A1R0evo, weather is starting to turn for the better and I have been able to get out and ride more consistently with the earlier sunrises. The new bike rides great! I've been having a blast and riding much faster on my solo training rides which the new rig. I am very pleased indeed."
