It's not often that "affordable"? and "carbon"? appear in the same sentence, but our Control 29 Carbon wheelset was designed to change that. Utilizing many of the same techniques used in the development of the SL iteration of the Control 29 these wheels provide the lightweight XC performance you need at a more attainable price.

Creating a successful XC wheelset isn't as easy as you might think. Often times keeping a wheel light, stiff and strong requires an unlimited budget. So when we were asked to create a wheel that had low inertia and weight but was also affordable strong enough to take on rocks and roots and wide enough to optimize traction and rolling resistance we knew that we had our work cut out for us.

We started with the notion of keeping these wheels as close to their SL brethren as possible. And with this we explored what made the SLs so awesome in the first place and then we implemented nearly every aspect of them. Starting with the rim we kept our renowned Zero Hook Bead that allows for continuous fibre layup across the sidewall and rim bed. We then paired it with a wide 25-millimeter internal profile that makes it resilient to impact and creates a tire profile that's conducive to low rolling resistance and incredible traction.

On the trail these technical traits translate to a wheelset that many XC riders have grown to love - quick accelerations on punchy climbs, swift stopping that lets you leave braking till the last second and unprecedented reliability. Combine this with the easy to set up our 2Bliss Ready system and you have a reliable XC wheelset that's as easy to climb on as it is to work on.

To go along with the rim we made sure to keep the lightweight, reliable and affordable features in mind when building the wheelset so we took DT Swiss 350 Classic hubs (15x110mm thru-axle front / 12x148mm thru-axle rear) and hand-laced them with 28 DT Swiss Competition Race spokes. Finding hand-built wheels is becoming more and more difficult but we're fully invested in the power of the human touch. When a wheel is machine-built there are certain margins of error that are built into the system that result in inconsistencies. With a real person building your wheels however you're sure to get a wheelset that's free of imperfections.

Bikes are excluded from next day delivery to allow for assembly and quality checking by our team of professional bike builders.

 

Electric Bikes

Due to the extra weight of electric bikes, we are unable to ship these fully assembled. Instead, your bike will be built, configured and checked by our mechanics before being packed back into it's original box.

This method requires removing the front wheel, handlebars, pedals and seatpost, which will need to be reinstalled upon arrival.

To help with this we have a video guiding you through every step! However, if there's anything you'd like any help or advice, please contact us by calling 0141 332 2705 or by e-mailing sales@dalescycles.com
