Handsling Offset Tubeless Wheels are advanced wheels optimised for use with disc brakes, and as such are lightweight, aerodynamic and strong.
Off-set spoke holes produces a balanced wheel that deals with the forces associated with a powerful disc brake at the front, and are then off-set to the opposite side to deal with wide cassette an the rear wheel. To this end the spoke holes are off-set by 3mm from centre to improve strength and durability.
The rims are in excess of 30mm wide at their widest point and have a toroidal shape to aid aerodynamics.
The offset rims are hooked, meaning they are compatible with a wide range of tubeless tyres, as well as with clincher tyres and inner tubes. The internal width is 21-22mm.
Available in depths of 35mm, 45mm, 50mm and 60mm, they are ideal for road, cyclocross and gravel riders looking for a strong wheel that will take punishment. Maximum rider weight is 100kgs.
The wide rim profile is well behaved in cross winds and offers aerodynamic performance no matter the wind direction. They work particularly well with the latest asymmetric, truncated aero frame tube profiles.
The rims are at their widest - 30mm - close to the outside edge, before tapering back to 28mm at the rim edge to form an aerodynamic transition into the tyre.
They are optimised for 28mm tyres but will work with a variety of widths up to 45mm gravel tyres.
Off-set wheel rims are available in 35mm, 45mm, 50mm and 60mm depths.
Any combination is possible. Remember that rim depth is always a trade off between aerodynamics and comfort. Weight is not really a huge factor as you expend far more energy pushing wheels through the air than accelerating them up to speed; even in the mountains, total mass of rider and bike is more relevant than wheel weight specifically.
Rim depth depends upon riding style and conditions. A shallow rim will afford more comfort and handle better on windy days. A deeper rim will be more aerodynamic but will give a harsher ride and be tougher to keep under control in windy conditions.
The rims are very strong and the off-set spokes make tough wheels that can handle a lot of abuse. Handsling worked hard with our factory to make the rims as lightweight as possible without compromising strength.
Finished in matt UD carbon with gloss, embossed HANDSLING logos they are of striking appearance and make any bike look amazing.
We fit the superbly fast Handsling hubs. They are 6 pawl, providing quick engagement and use an anti-bite system on the cassette body for added longevity.
Spokes are top of the range, best in class aero Pillar Wing20, proven to be the stiffest, strongest most aero spoke out there.
We carry a good stock of wheels, and aim to ship the next day. If we do not have what you want in stock, wheels can be made to order. Please allow a week for the build and delivery.
All Handsling wheels are guaranteed against manufacturing and wheelbuilding defects under a limited lifetime warranty. Our warranty philosophy is that we are cyclists selling products to other cyclists, and we need to look after each other.
