With the E 1700 SPLINE wheels we have taken everything we've learnt from top level EWS racing and put it into a package where performance is high and prices are low. The super reliable Ratchet System hubs are serviceable without any tools. The solid wheel build comes with 28 butted, straight pull spokes. The rims have just enough aluminum in their profile for hard charging enduro riders while being light enough to pedal up to your favorite trail head. Now go invest the saved bucks into some good knee pads – strongly recommended.
