Legendary 3°

Throw in DH-specific spokes, and lace it to one of the lightest, strongest, and widest DH rims out there and you've got the ultimate DH wheelset. Here's why:
Our instantly engaging freehub allows you to ratchet through technical terrain and place your pedals exactly where you need them, leaving you with added speed and your feet set up for the next obstacle. 

It's like taking off a dirty pair of goggles and seeing for the first time

The stiffer spokes provide unrivaled cornering and tracking performance through the nastiest terrain -No more wheel flex throwing you off line. The added stiffness also makes tuning easier; eliminating the mushy, vague feeling most DH wheels deliver allows you to accurately judge everything from tire pressure to suspension settings.

DH rim trifecta

The Grade rims are wide, light, and strong, allowing you to attack the nastiest terrain with confidence. The added traction and support our 28.5mm internal width provides is an incredible upgrade from the industry standard 21mm. We managed to add this width without adding the weight associated with wider rims. The 26" Grade rim comes in at an industry-leading 530 grams, with wheelsets coming in at 1750 grams. Oh, and tubeless ready too.

These wheels aren't race day only wheels -they have the long-haul in mind. We thickened up the spokes for added abrasion resistance and fatigue life, as well as adding secondary seals to the endcaps, dramatically adding to bearing life. So go ahead and break out the hose -the wheels can take it. 
Proven though numerous seasons under incredible athletes, the Grade wheels will continually deliver the goods, either while taking shuttle runs with your buddies or shaving seconds off of World Cup courses.
