Same great Sugar, new Lite weight.
Portland's own Sugar Wheel Works has been a gem for local riders for years, and we are honored to bring you offerings from their revered wheel building studio. Each of their hand-built wheels is assembled from hand-selected components to deliver you the perfect wheelset that's built to last a lifetime. These pre-built offerings allow you to experience what only hand-built wheels can offer, now without the wait time.
Built around the Boyd Altamount Lite rims, this rim-brake wheelset features their new hand-crafted alloy rim, getting a few updates over the standard Altamount while remaining true to Boyd's intentions. Featuring a lightweight construction, tubeless technology, and a slightly wider internal rim diameter, the only compromise was just dropping 5mm from the overall depth. Weighing in at just 435 grams, the Altamount Lite spins up quick for effortless accelerations and confidence-inspiring handling.
Down below, the White Industries T11 hubset provides the perfect balance between lightweight construction and aerodynamic efficiency. Unique to the T11 is the White Industries titanium freehub body, being nearly as light as aluminum and has the equivalent strength to many forms of steel, and 24-step ratchet. The rear hub is 11 speed compatible and, with provided spacer, can be run with 9 and 10 speed systems.
