In 2017 we started a working partnership with Team KGF, at the time a little known group of riders from Derby aiming to find every possible advantage to enter the British National Pursuit Championships. By 2019, after surprising the World, the team changed its identity to Huub/Wattbike. See how we meticulously hand make the very wheels that have stunned the world.
It’s no coincidence that Walker Brothers Wheels are as well known a name as some of the many riders around the world using our products. It’s the result of years of painstaking research into developing new products, and to enable this new manufacturing techniques to keep us ahead of the game. We don’t just sell wheels, we look to see what’s on the market, and see how we can make something better, faster and more reliable, then we build them.
Our workshop in Newcastle upon Tyne is where wheels are created from components such as rims, spokes, carbon sheets, ceramic bearing and hubs. Some recognisable, often not. Our rims are manufactured to an exact specification depending on their purpose and nothing you buy from us won’t have endured hours of testing using wind tunnels and other technology that will tell us what we need to know.
We have just recently expanded our carbon deep section spoked wheel ranges, Fleet and WideBoyTT to encompass disc brake versions as well as a new range Ruffnuts for Cycle-Cross and Gravel riders. To finish your wheels off, you can choose from Silver White or Stealth Black decals with either our logo or Walker Brothers text decals.
Of course there will always be the discerning rider who will never quite see what he really wants. For us, as we produce our wheels in small quantities, this isn’t a problem if you get in touch with your requirements, we rarely disappoint. While we may have your wheels in stock, most are built to specifically and as such you should allow 2 – 3 weeks from the time of your order. If you require a specific date, please Contact Us
