Syncros just showed off their new Revelstoke wheelset intended for enduro and trail. New carbon rims and DT Swiss hubs for this second generation of their top-of-the-range wheels. The overall weight has been decreased by 19% compared to the previous model, reaching 1,500 grams in order to satisfy both enduro riders – thanks to the robustness – and trail bikers.
Two models are available that mount the same rim but differ in hub and spokes. The Revelstoke 1.0s mount DT 240s hubs with Ratchet 36 and 28 DT Aerolite spokes with Pro Lock nipples while on the 1.0 the hubs are DT 370 with 28 spokes and Syncros nipples. If for the 1.0s, as anticipated, the weight is 1,500 grams, for the 1.0 it rises to 1,650.
The carbon rim has been revisited with new carbon layups that have allowed a reduction in profile height while improving lateral stiffness. The shoulder is thicker and has a hookless profile and the internal width is 30mm while the format is 29 inch only.
