WideBoy 45mm Tubeless Ready Compatible Clincher


Our Wideboy 45’s obviously give a more aero advantage over our 38mm wheelset, and are more suited to those who prefer a slightly more rigid ride which the compliant 28mm wide rim can easily accommodate with room to spare. Easily able to deal with moderate cross winds with no loss of stability.

Walker Brothers “WideBoy” range wheel sets have an extra wide 28mm rim width which widens out to a maximum of almost 30mm. They have an angled 4 degree braking surface and when fitted with 25mm tyres gives an excellent aero profile of tyre and rim combined. UD carbon lay up front and back with excellent handing capabilities. Utilising the feed back from our independent testers that the tubeless clincher rim offers an advantage over standard tubed clinchers. The rim has a braking surface which is bonded into the surface of the carbon and is heat resistant to 200 degrees Celsius).

The “WideBoy” wheel sets are targeted more for road bikes as there may be clearance issues with some TT frames that have limited brake caliper adjustment. If purchased for TT frames the clearance should be checked before purchase.

Chris King R45 Ceramic was chosen as the top of the range hub for all our Wideboy range. The R45 rear hub combines a redesigned RingDrive™ system with 45 teeth for lower drag and near instant engagement with a lightweight hub body and the legendary made-in-house bearings. Ceramic bearings, roll on heat-treated, surgical grade steel races that are machined simultaneously, with tools of equal wear to ensure perfectly matched inner and outer races. The quality and speed of the bearings is what sets it apart from the competition and they are what you will feel and notice on every single ride. As Chris King bearing tracks burnish they get faster with age and all our hubs and bearings are fully serviceable for years upon years of demanding use. The patented Chris King RingDrive with 45-points of simultaneous-engagement will get your power to the ground fast, provide unmatched engagement, and give you that legendary Chris King angry-bee sound. Inside the sleek hub body is a stiff 17mm alloy axle for superior performance under the lateral stresses encountered in corners and aggressive sprints. The hub is 11-speed Shimano and Campagnolo compatible. Unique to the R45 rear hub is the King patented 45 tooth RingDrive engagement system, creating a quieter, faster engaging freehub body.

Walker Brothers Ceramic SL are our lightest hubs and use ABEC5 TPI bearings. They will help your hubs to roller faster for longer. Very user serviceable if required, they are easy to take apart with basic tools. Using a unique patented 6 pawl design in two groups which work in teams of three simultaneously. Each pawl is held in place by a spring/clip and is also given an additional coil spring.  This design is fast to engage, is quiet and is very durable. It provides either 48 or 56 point engagement, depending on the hub. Axle : Ø10 – A7075, P.C.D : Ø38.5 / 50.6, Centre to flange: 16mm drive side, 37mm non-drive side, cassette : Aluminium, 7075, pawls: 6, 2 groups of 3, engagement: 48pt

While we endevour to keep a stock of our most popular models, the nature of our business and the range of options we offer makes this difficult. In particular the hand built nature of some of our wheels from raw materials means we cannot always supply demand. For this reason we ask you give us 2-3 weeks before we ship your wheels unless you contact us direct before ordering.
