Wheels for Purpose

The Scribe Inception Aero Wide+ 42s were designed to perform no matter what the terrain. These wheels will climb hard, cruise at speed, and allow you to get up to speed fast when the power goes on. The wider profile gives you the option to have increased Aero benefits by simply changing tyres! If you want to know more about wheel aerodynamics, and why we designed the Wide+ models, check out our Naturally NACA blog.

Tipping the scales at 1,567g, the Inception Wide+ 42s are lightweight and in terms of spec, there is nothing that comes close at this price point. Partnered with double-disc Ratchet Drive hubs, these wheels respond FAST. 

The Wide 21mm internal profile lets you fit wide tyres for increased stability when cornering, and increased speed due to improved rolling resistance - especially when ran as tubeless. With Centre lock disc as standard, you can ride with confidence knowing the stopping power is there when needed.
