BENCHMARK DISC WHEELS
The Benchmark Disc Wheel is designed as an ideal entry into the hand built wheel market. If you need an economical and versatile pair of workhorse disc braking wheels, for the winter or 4-season training on road or gravel: these are a great place to start. A sensible mix of quality components is used to build a trusty wheel with a low rotational mass but high strength and resistance to bad conditions, without breaking the bank. Assembled to exacting tolerances with love and care in the Surrey Hills.
DT Swiss R470 DB rims have a 20mm internal width making them compatible with everything from high pressure 23mm road tyres to low pressure 40c gravel tyres. With a user friendly tubeless interface, they are equally happy with a regular clincher tyre and tube.
Supplied with a choice of centrelock disc hubs: the classic cup and cone Shimano RS470 or the fully serviceable Miche Centrelock Disc with sealed cartridge bearings.
28/28 spoke standard builds are suitable for riders up to 95Kg. Build kits for The Benchmark Disc Wheel are usually in stock, which enables a faster turnaround than a fully customised hand built wheel.
