Whether you're navigating rock gardens or tackling steep climbs; Hobo is always there to give you a boost when the roads are rough and the terrain is tricky. Machine built for precision and and individually hand checked for quality.
Boost: wider, stiffer, tougher
Hobo's Boost hub is wider than a standard hub; extra width between the flanges promotes a shallower spoke bracing angle to create a stronger, stiffer wheel. A wider hub also means a shorter chainstay, more mud clearance, and better tyre clearance.
Tubeless ready, lightweight rims
29 mm lightweight aluminium rims make this wheelset ideal for rock gardens and technical terrain. Run with 2.2" - 2.6" tyres, or run tubeless with the help of some 34 mm tape, a pair of valves, and compatible tyres (not supplied). Disc only.
Durable, convertible, and serviceable hub
Sealed wheel bearings so they are easily serviceable without the need for specialist tools; adaptable for 110/141 Boost QR or 110/148 Boost bolt-through setups; adapters are available upon request. The axles are double machined so they are first machined, then milled for precision and finally milled again for final perfection. Plus they are made out of aluminium with 6 bolt disc mounts so they are not heavy.
Ride it your way
We all ride our own way. Make the Hobo your own by choosing between regular Shimano 11 speed freehub (10s spacer included) and the SRAM XD Driver (permitting a 10 tooth bottom sprocket).
