You want this wheel because you ride all the surfaces, and you like to go fast. The AR rim is wider which means it plays nice with wider tires, it’s more stable, and it maintains aerodynamics even in off-road scenarios. ENVE molds the spoke holes right into their rims, rather than drilling them, which means this rim will be stronger and last longer than its competitors. We like that a lot.
KIng's R45 Centerlock™ hubs pair a lightweight hub body with their legendary, made-in-house bearings. They give you 45-points of simultaneous engagement, and that means more of your power gets to the ground and your traction is better. These hubs just roll better, last longer, and look way more handsome than anything else out there. The stiffness of the one-piece axle translates to laser-precise bike handling.
Chris King bearings, both steel and ceramic, have heat-treated, surgical grade steel races that are machined simultaneously to ensure perfect matching. The quality and speed of our bearings is what you will feel (and hear) on every ride. As Chris King bearing tracks burnish they get actually get faster. A little bit of regular love (i.e. service) will keep this hub rolling for years upon years of demanding use.

Going tubeless allows you to run lower tire pressures without the added weight of a tube. Lower tire pressure has many benefits, including greater traction, lower rolling resistance over rough surfaces, and decreased risk of a puncture-related flat.
Tubeless-ready rims and tires are parts of a complete system that eliminate the need for tubes by creating an airtight chamber between the rim and tire. Liquid sealant is added to the chamber to fill small punctures and maintain air pressure while you ride.
UST (Universal Standard for Tubeless) is a specific type of tubeless system that dictates the shape of the rim and tire beads. UST rims should be paired with UST-specific tires for best results.
