The Hive has been busy this year and some of the new products they had on display were hubs, wheelsets, and rims. Branded under the e.thirteen flag, there are three wheelsets aimed at XC (XCX), AM (TRS), and DH/FR (LG1). Check inside for details on their new wheel offerings and more.

Video Overview:

Whether you’ve got 26″ or 29″ e.thirteen has got you covered. There are rims available or wheelset options. The Hive owns Chub hubs so its no coincidence to notice similar methods used in the hub designs. The hubs are oversized and they’ve done this to produce better spoke triangulation and improve stiffness.  MSRP on the complete wheelsets will range from ~$900 to 1100 USD.
