Downhill wheels experience abuse like no others so they have to be built super tough. Created for our S36 Downhill Bike this wheelset is all you'll ever need if you're rocking a 157 back end.

Hubs: El Guapo Sidewinder DH are built tough. A 20mm front hub with extra thick spoke flanges provides the backbone for a quick steering front wheel that goes exactly where you point it. Double sealed Japanese EZO bearings are weather-proofed against the worst condition the UK can throw at a bike. The rear hub is also suitably beefed up, with an oversized 17mm axle and rolling on four sealed EZO cartridge bearings for maximum stability. The heavy duty version of our El Guapo freehub engages with a quad-pawl system that load shares over all four pawls simultaneously for maximum strength and guaranteed engagement. The El Guapo Sidewinder DH are ready for anything.

Rims: WTB i29 Team (TCS) rims are known for their durability. A popular choice for riders who don't see the value in carbon rims the 27.5" version of the i29 Team weighs in at 542g and is truly built to last. Featuring WTB's TCS internal rim profile these are tubeless compatible rims, just add tape and gloop and you're ready to roll.

We finished these wheels off with black anodised, plain gauge spokes fitted with brass nipples. It's a high-strength zero fuss pairing that offers maximum durability and still keeps the price sensible.

NB: 150mm conversion end cap kit is in the pipeline for these wheels. Please drop us a line if you're looking for these wheels in 150mm rear hub spacing.
