-Luxe i2 iMO

Introducing the Luxe i2 Wheelset.
Dramatic studio shot...

50mm rim depth in carbon. Light. Stiff. Strong.
Highlights on this particular wheelset include the Alchemy ELF Front Hub, KCNC Skewers, Sapim CX-Ray Spokes...

...and an Alchemy ORC Rear Hub.

Tutto fatto a mano.


Weight for the pair sans tires and skewers came to 1292g.

I assembled this particular pair of Li2's with brass nipples on the DS and alloy nipples on the NDS rear.  Note the nipples are external for ease of truing.

The front wheel is straight-up alloy nipples; also full external. 

Another elegant touch is the 2X front wheel lacing pattern. I am finding this to be much more appealing to the eye than a radial lacing pattern. Also, there is no loss in aerodynamics as the rims are all that "see" the air.

The Challenge Paris-Roubaix are my tire of choice for early season riding on the post-winter, torn roads here in New England. The Roubaix also make great dirt road tires. Unless you are lining up in Compiegne, 25mm in width are all you will need.

Should you want a pair of Luxe i2 for yourself please contact me direct at "luxewheelworks@gmail.com".

Happy New Year!
