Whisky No.9 50d wheels deliver stable and robust performance, both on and off the road. The No.9 50d rims offer a lightweight, aero platform with a wide internal width that pairs well with 25-35c tires. These disc brake-specific wheels have clean lines and provide great versatility from tarmac to gravel, brevets to the CX course.
- Centered around DT Swiss 350 hubs, well-known for their balance of performance, weight and tool-free serviceability
- Laced with j-bend DT Aerolite spokes and brass nipples for durability and serviceability
- Each wheel includes a Whisky tubeless valve and tape
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 bead. UST rims should be paired with UST-specific tires for best results.
