The Fleet Disc range has been completely redesigned for 2020. From the hub to the rims, everything has been chosen to not only improve on our Fleet ranges in terms of performance, but to also look good. We’ve taken the step away from building our own hubs and offering for instance the Chris King to something more popular and affordable with the DT Swiss 240 and 350 for the simple reason they pretty much cover all angles as far as reliability and performance is concerned.
We’ve also changed the design and specification of our rims to feature hidden nipples. This allows us to build a rigid wheel with a spoke length slightly longer than normal which allows for a more compliant ride as well as looking far cleaner! Another small design feature we’ve added is that the wheels will now have two silver spokes radiating from the hub to the valve where it will highlight the Walker Brothers logo.
We’re no longer listing Tubular rims for these wheels due to the fact we don’t actually build that many with them, but can still supply them if you care to get in touch on our contact page.
DT Swiss 240. Currently our top performing disc brake hub. As with our rim brake Fleet range, these hubs pretty much do all we want them to. Still retaining DT’s patented star ratchet system known for high load carrying capacity and reliability. The star ratchet system can be easily upgraded from 18 to 36 or 54 points of engagement.
DT Swiss 350. This hub retains many of the features of its high end counterpart with less emphasis on weight and retaining many of the internal components of the 240. As a result they give the same performance with only a small weight penalty, but same performance as reliability.
All our new wheels feature new decals with all our previous options. Riders can choose from either the Walker Brothers name proudly displayed in either white or black and the same with the model name.
