GX24 650b, Aivee MP2, 650b
8/9 Note - We sold more Aivee MP2 hubs (by far) than forecasted. Being French, Aivee takes most of August off, so we won't be able to get any more until late this month. Sorry.
GX24 (Gravel X whatever the heck else you might want to use them for, they're awesome) 650b carbon rims are 24mm wide internal, 30mm wide external, 24mm deep, have a 2.5mm offset, and weigh 380g/rim. Tubeless ready, of course, they are ideal for 650b gravel tires from 45 to 50mm wide, and mountain bike tires from 2.25 to 2.5" wide. Hookless for ultimate impact resistance, we strongly recommend using tubeless ready tires at a maximum of 50psi for 45mm tires (and less for bigger tires, but these pressures are all much higher than you'll want to run anyhow). Tubeless + hookless + weigh less + cost way less = way more.
Aivee MP2 hubs are meticulously built in France, using aerospace technology, materials, and tooling equipment. They are a perfect balance between the craftsmanship, quality, and durability of more expensive hubs, and the lower price of lesser hubs. Rapid engagement with 3 pawls, and available in QR, 12mm, and 15mm front and QR and 12x142 rear axle formats. Switching between axle formats is simple and fast with optional end caps. Both SRAM/Shimano and XD drive are available.
Laced with black Sapim CX Rays and black brass nipples (other options available as custom orders), 2x crossing throughout. Includes tubeless ready rim tape (the best for tubes, too).
