Stiff, durable wheelset for larger and more powerful riders without compromising on weight and ride quality
Hub choices info
We use the DT Swiss Aerolite bladed spoke for all of our premium wheels. The Aerolite has a round 2.0mm diameter head and thread, and is tapered and flattened to a 0.9×2.3mm bladed center section.
We take the excellent quality DT Swiss spokes and then apply some Wheelworks magic to them to further increase their durability. Rather than rely on boxed spoke lengths in 2mm increments we cut each and every spoke to the exact length needed, down to 0.1mm, and then roll 10mm of beautiful new thread on our Japanese made Morizumi machine. Exact spoke length means the spoke nipples are fully supported and eliminates nipple breakage, even when using light weight aluminium nipples.
Once our spokes are laced into your wheels they go through a rigours pre-stress procedure which eliminates any popping or pinging of the spokes and further increases their durability.
Because of our attention to detail we offer a lifetime guarantee against broken spokes on all our wheels.
Each pair of Maker wheels includes Maker-specific carbon brakepads and quick release skewers.
Our road skewers are the result of four generations of iteration and improvement and bring attention to detail to an often overlooked wheel component.
An internal-cam closure means smooth, quiet operation with a clamping force which can’t be met with external-cam designs. A steel shaft ensures ultimate stiffness and security and the sculpted lever is comfortable in the hand and sits flush when closed.
Our commitment to you doesn’t end once we’ve got your money: If you have any questions maintaining or servicing your wheelset we’re here to help. Just get in touch.
Each wheel we build is engraved with a unique number and we keep detailed records dating back over 10 years tracking details like spoke length, pre-stress procedure, and even what type of grease was used between the spoke and nipple.
