The H+Son Hydra Dynamo Wheelset is hand-built by the experts at Portland's revered Sugar Wheel Works. Each component is hand selected to ensure complete compatibility, and with their combined decades of experience, each wheelset is built to last.
Furnished with H+Son Hydra rims, this wheelset offers a sleek, minimalist aesthetic that will complement any setup. G609 Alloy construction and 32-count 3-cross Sapim Race spokes, both front and rear, with resilient brass nipples make this wheelset exceptionally strong; built to bear 180lbs+ of rider weight without a clunky look or feel.
The disc brake SP PL-8 Dynamo Hub is lightweight and trim yet impressively robust, designed to handle the powerful stopping forces generated by disc brakes as well as the demands of endurance racing and riding. This hub isn’t only robust in its strength, it offers effective and efficient power generation, yielding 72% at 15km/hr. With numbers like that, Shutter Precision and reviewers proclaim that the PL-8 is the most efficient dynamo hub on the market. Take advantage of PL-8’s power and efficiency by setting it up with a dynamo light; it’ll provide reliable and clear illumination in dark and low light conditions. Also, it should be noted that the PL-8 dynamo hub reportedly generates much less drag than other leading-brand dynamo hubs - in many cases, over 50% less.
