RideFast Racing (United States) - Press Release: Introducing the New HOTWIRE & HWR GX!
When you have a race-proven, Elite-National-Championship-winning, 2018 MBA Editor's Choice Award-receiving, wheelset like our Hotwire how do you make it better?
Well... We started by increasing its internal width to 25mm to improve its cornering capability as well as improving tracking in rough conditions while also increasing its ability to run larger volume tires. Then, we built it around the same Lifetime Guaranteed, SPM Boost mountain hubs you already love (except we added an optional Shimano 12-speed-compatible version)! And then, to make absolutely certain you don't have any performance excuses, we kept the weight (as well as the price) unchanged!
But we didn't stop there... We also took the new 25mm Hotwire rim and added it to our all-new SPSL-CL hubset to create the HWR GX, the ultimate pure gravel wheelset! At 1270g the HWR GX is the lightest wheelset we've ever built! Built upon the foundation of our Hotwire, the GX is stronger than other brand's mountain wheelsets and lighter than your road-race wheels!
