Our Gravel Bomber offers tough and reliable custom gravel wheels that won’t let you down with a range of premium components, ready for any adventure you can throw at them.

Built with super wide, tall and stiff DT Swiss GR5310 rims that are perfect for 35-60mm tyres and rated for rubber as wide as 3.00″ for your plus sized dreams! Looking for something to lighter to accommodate thinner tyres? Check out our Endurance Bomber!

The legendary Hope Tech RS4CL hubs need no introduction. UK designed and manufactured they remain are unbeatable in all conditions. Hands down our favourite brand of hub manufacturer.  Meanwhile our in house range of Bitex centrelock hubs are lighter, have a higher engagement angle and are equipped with long-lasting TPI sealed bearings weatherproofed in house.  Bitex six bolt hubs are MTB ready hubs with a sturdier freehub and larger flanges for a stiffer wheelset. All options feature progressive flange spacing, generous bearing sizes, and a sturdy freehub body. Easily serviceable throughout and with swap-able plug ‘n’ play freehub bodies, end-caps and rear axles alongside  mean that your Gravel Bomber’s are wheels for life suitable for your current frame and beyond!

A variety of spoke options allow for further customisation.  Butted spokes bring performance and longevity at lower cost: light riders below 75kg not carrying any additional luggage will benefit from the weight savings of the Sapim D-Light whilst the Sapim Race is an excellent all round spoke.  Riders of all weights and ability who are looking for a truly performance focused set of wheels can opt to upgrade to the Sapim CX Ray.  Bringing further weight savings along with a fatigue life that’s through the roof, bladed spokes aren’t just for your road riding lycra clad mates!

Customisation comes in the form of upgrading to PHR compatible Sapim Polyax Double Square 7075-T6 Heat treated nipples in your choice of full stealth black, a range of bright anodised colours or your choice of custom chosen coloured highlights either side of the valve to show that these wheels really are just yours!

Rated to total system loads of 130kg.

All our wheels come equipped with two layers of high end tubeless tape, professionally installed free of charge.
