Huggacast 122: Bontrager Wheels

Chris Clinton, Bontrager Hard Goods Brand Manager, shows us updated Bontrager wheels. New hubs, skewers, and aerodyanmics without twin-paired spokes. Like Hed’s C2 platform, Bontrager has increased the width of the rim and no longer needs the twin-pair. Twin-pair was problematic for several reasons and this change will undoubtedly rekindle decades-old debates about Rolf Wheels, spoke patterns, and tension. We heard, but do not have it confirmed, that Shimano and Zip have also increased rim width in their new wheels.
